William Wray – Fine Artist

Junkyard

Everyone knows Bill Wray from his work on Ren and Stimpy, his monthly comic strip - Monroe - that runs in Mad Magazine, and his comics (including Big Blown Baby and Hellboy Jr.)

Now, Bill is concentrating on fine art oil painting.  His work is focusing on the urban landscape of California, and he is looking to capture "what's left of a bygone era" in his paintings...before these structures are replaced by strip malls.

Check out his new site at WilliamWray.com.

Wheaty Wheat Back Online

Wheaty Wheat Studios newly revamped website is now up and running.  It's something that I have been looking forward to as they really are putting out some of the hottest new toys in the designer genre.  They have a lot of info there, but they should be adding more as the weeks go on and they begin releasing more cool figures.  Check out the 360 degree views....very cool.

And for those of you just dying to get your hands on some of the new Joe Ledbetter figures.  The Kidrobot exclusive Mr. Bunny is set to drop on September 22nd.  Good luck getting one....only 50 were made.

Camille Rose Garcia and NTF

Necessaries Toy Foundation is set to launch their latest figures Lulu and Cherry Girl - by Camille Rose Garcia.  As we all know about NTF - their products are top notch!  So this one will most definitely be worth the wait.

If you're in the Santa Ana, CA area on October 1st...you'll want to check out the show opening.  You'll be able to pick up these two figures, as well as get a glimpse of Camille's amazing artwork.  Don't miss out!

David Horvath’s 2-Faced Dunny Set 2

Dunny2face2

Kidrobot has released a sneak peek of the new set of mini Dunnys from Uglydoll creator David Horvath.   Unlike the first set, these will be sold individually (and not as a packaged set).  Much like the last set of Horvath Dunnys...the mini set and the large Dunny will be released with an interrelated story.  The large 8-inch Dunny will be the Eggdrop Dunny (pictured below).  So look for the whole story to be released in October.

Also, be on the lookout for the Dunny designed by Sun-Min - it's in the 2-Faced Dunny Set 2.

Coming this October…

I.W.G. minis!!  We've been waiting for these figures for a long time (or maybe it just feels like a long time).  And it appears that our wait is almost over.  In time for Halloween, we should all be able to get our hands on the new line of Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo mini figures.

All of Series 1 will be represented.  Every 3-inch figure includes the same weapon as their larger counterpart - as well as a skull and crossbones that is damaged according to the type of weapon the figure has.  Be on the lookout for this very cool set from Rocket World.

A trip to Target…

This post has absolutely nothing to do with toys...but since it is a blog...I thought you might enjoy hearing about what YOU can pick up at your local Target store.  So, I was shopping with my wife this past weekend and came across the big Halloween display in Target - a little early, but still great for the kid in all of us.  I happened upon the Jones Soda Halloween section - Jones Soda and Target have some sort of exclusive agreement.
