Free Toys From Me

OK folks...I am moving next month.  This means I need to clean up, pack things neatly in their boxes, etc.  I have come across some extra toys that I would like to make available to you...the readers.  All I am asking from you is to help me by paying for shipping. 

So here is what we have at the moment:

Helpy Horvath Dunny (Red) - 2
Gel 2.0 Horvath Dunny (Green and White) - 2
Mabus Horvath Dunny (Green) - 2
Cook Horvath Dunny (Purple) - 2
Spawn - Lotus Warrior Angel - 1
Spawn - Zombie Spawn - 1
Spawn - Grave Digger - 1

I also have a number of mini Emotes that I will add if you want one.

Here's what you must do:

Post a comment in the comments section of this post and let me know what you want.  Shipping for each figure is $5.  If you want an additional figure, it will be $2 extra (unless it is 2 Dunnys - still $5).  Only 2 figures per person and no one can snag 2 of the Spawn figures. Paypal and shipping to the US only.  I hope this makes sense!!

REVIEW: Neth Creatures Flora Collection

I completely missed out on seeing the first set of Neth Creatures at this past summer’s San Diego Comic Con.  Maybe I was too busy dressing up in my Klingon outfit and waiting in line for my Aeon Flux silk-screened t-shirt.  Whatever it was, I missed out on seeing a very cool art toy…and I have been kicking myself ever since.

Well, lucky for me, the initial series of Neth Creatures was launched last month.  With 9 figures in Series 1, the Nethies have made a pretty big splash.  After being in development for over 2 years, we’ve been blessed with 3 unique figures having 3 different designs: Flora, Natural and Brushed.

P1010417

Each figure is made up of 5 different pieces.  There is a head and a base that are separated by a metal divider.  The metal diecast ring is where the figure’s arms are secured.  Both the head and the base are made of clear, translucent plastic.  Within this plastic is where the artwork that differentiates the lines in housed.  All of the figures can be disassembled and reassembled with different configurations.

Scuba Booty…

Although it’s not a new figure, we received news that Achy Breaky Toys’ Scuba Booty is still available and can be purchased by emailing JC

P1010353_1

Scuba Booty is a 10-inch tall action figure designed by Spazz.  She is a soft vinyl doll, who is obviously underdressed – hence the blurring.  Scuba Booty has a flocked afro, fur boots, shorts with a utility belt, and a big ‘ol knife.  The figure also has a crystal pedestal so you can display her.  It’s probably one of the strangest figures I have come across.  The figure retails for $45.99.

New Neo Blythe

The collaboration by "Pom Ponnet," a sophisticated, French-taste
children's apparel brand and CWC have given birth to the Neo Blythe
"Rendez-vous Chouchou".

The skirt of the dress she wears is gorgeously
embroidered with a scene from Paris. The scene included a corner cafe
and the Eiffel Tower looking down are all elaborately done in beads,
spangles and rhinestones.  The rhinestones and cut-beads hemmed on the
upper front of the dress create an elegant look. The big ribbon on the
back of the dress adds the final touch of charm to the fashionable
outfit. The eye change charm is embossed with a crown. She carries a
cute, heart shape bag with a ribbon and pearl handle. The top hat
has the letter P written in with rhinestone. The lace gloves and socks
complete the look!
Blythe's fluffy friends is a sweet poodle with a pink lead and a
light-blue polka dot dress.

Bwana Spoons at Wootini in December

One day Jessie the Wanderer woke up on the beach with way too much sand in his ears, and said "I don't wanna wander no more." So he set out on a mini-quest to find some land and build some proper shelter. From this came Jessie's Palace.

Wootiniteecolorway03

Wootini presents Bwana Spoons, the original Rainbow Master, on Friday, 9 December, from 7pm - 12am in the Carr Mill Mall, Carrboro.  Expect to see lots of new paintings, tiny sculptures, and piles of driftwood, along with refreshments and music from Family. Show runs through 9 January, 2006.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I hope all of you readers have a great Thanksgiving!  Go eat some turkey or turducken or tofu-turkey or whatever you eat.

Targetholidaypackmed

I will be taste testing one of the Holiday Packs from Jones Soda.  Mmm...Turkey and Gravy soda!  I'll be posting the 2 taste tests over the next 2 months.

December means the end of the year...which means our 2005 Toy Awards.

The last banner was designed by Shan Michael Evans and this week's was done by Pravin Sathe of SolidHang.com.

That's it for now!

…and Bears, O My!

Beargang4_72

Here's a preview of the 3 new Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo special edition figures.  Produced by STRANGEco and designed by Rocket World - the 3 new bears will use the same body design as Titus...just different paint applications.

From left to right - Titus the Grizzly Bear (released last year), Henson the Polar Bear (limited to 100), Septimius the Black Bear (limited to 100) and Peary the Bloody Polar Bear (limited to 100, only at Kidrobot).  Look for them at your favorite vinyl outlet sometime in January 2006.

Sket One’s King Tut Dunny

I might be somewhat critical of platform toys sometimes. A lot of the designs we see are just the same old stuff.  The same artists doing the same work on a different figure.  I think that's why I like a lot of customs and platform toys done by Sket One.  A lot of his work talks to my inner 1980's child (see his upcoming CiBoys line).

Sket_one_red_tut

Kidrobot has taken Sket's very popular King Tut Dunny (just ask Whoopi Goldberg - who allegedly purchased the original) from the inaugural custom Dunny Show, and shrunken it down to a formidable 8 inches.  This is my favorite Dunny so far.  Not only will the original Blue Tut be available...but the evil Red Ramses (OK...I think they might be calling this one the Red Tut) will be available as well.

Dunny_20inch_tut

The Red version is available only at Kidrobot (500 piece edition) on December 29th and the Blue version will be available at finer retailers on January 5th (2,000 pieces).  I am guessing that both FreeBento.com and 3DRetro.com will have this figure available.
