If the 16" Spider Boom is a little too big for your liking, here is a plush that's half of the size. Toy2R and Sun-Min Kim will also be releasing this 8" tall Spider Boom plush figure in July of this year.
Daniel Svanberg sent in some information about his plush toy line - Spök-spök (which means Ghost-ghost in Swedish). The line consists of the following five characters:
Spökelina - The pink ghost. She's always happy and smiling.
Spök-spök - The blue ghost. Spökelinas boyfriend. He's shy, but curious.
Herr Leverfläck - A mole that can't stop scratching himself. He's Spök-spöks best friend.
Toofhairy - A hairy au-pair tooth from Scotland. She's Spökelinas best friend.
Baron von Kon - A blue road cone. He's super angry and always mad. And he's got a secret crush on Spökelina.
Here is a little something that adFunture is working on with Jukai. This crazy grenade is called G-Robot and is a character from Jukai’s Taiwanese design crew. AdFunture says that this should be ready for this summer.
Funko, and their Fantastik Plastik line, has brought us the Mad Monster Party set of vinyl figures. What is the Mad Monster Party, you ask? It’s the silliest party of the year…and you’re all invited. That was actually the tagline for the Rankin/Bass, late 60’s claymation special.
Made by the same people who did the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Christmas special, Mad Monster Party stars Boris Karloff and Phyllis Diller. It was inspiration behind Tim Burton’s mega-hit – The Nightmare Before Christmas.
All four of the figures (Dracula, Frankenstein, Werewolf and Zombie Bellhop) come packaged in a see through, cylindrical package. There is little reading information, but there are a few pictures of the characters from the classic film. The same package is used for all of the figures.
FreeBento.com has sent us the Werewolf and Dracula vinyl figures for this review. These rotocast vinyl figures stand 6” tall and have no points of articulation. So what you see, is essentially what you get.

Toy2R will be premiering Sun-Min Kim's 16" Spider Boom plush at Comic Con this July. A 16" tall plush?!? I am gonna have to pack lightly...who needs socks anyway? Spider Boom will run you around $40.
One of Sideshow Toys’ SDCC exclusives comes from one of Medicom’s most unique Star Wars collectibles - the Japanese style vinyl super-deformed series (Vinyl Collectible Dolls). The 501st Clone Trooper VSD stands roughly 8” in height, and the stylized caricature sculpture captures the menace, but cuteness, of the Episode III - Revenge of the Sith Clone design perfectly. The figure is highly poseable, and includes blaster. This exclusive Clone Trooper is decorated in the blue markings characteristic of the 501st Legion, Vader's Fist, the spec ops team that followed Darth Vader in the assault on the Jedi Temple. It runs $59.99 for Comic Con attendees.
Sun-Min Kim will be working with Toy2R to release a series of plush Spider Boom figures. What will they look like? No one knows! The pictures haven't been released yet. But we'll keep you updated!
