Here's a toy we've been waiting a while for. I initially saw a photo of Hunchy many months ago...and he'll now be a reality in just a few more. I must say that my favorite is the Charlie Brown version - What the Chuck! (the Skullbrain Exclusive).
You might be just as perplexed as I am when it comes to the photos on the site. From the look of it, they should be back up on the site by the end of the weekend. So, please do not fret!
A winner will be chosen for the Dalek Ice Bot figure (thanks to 3DRetro.com) on Saturday. So if you have not entered the contest...do so! And include your picks for our 2005 Toy Awards and receive 2 entries in the contest.
Finally...I'll be moving this weekend so I will not have access to email until Monday. I also won't be able to update the site until Wednesday (unless someone in the neighborhood has an open wireless network). But when we do get back on track...get ready for reviews galore and our 2005 Toy Awards.
Shawn over at Shawnimals.com has put together a cool little animation to wish everyone a happy holidays. Nothing like a bunch of ninjas forming a Christmas tree. Check it out!
I hope this Lapin is chewing sugarless gum. Mr Clement has announced that she will be making a limited edition run of this 8-inch Common Lapin. It's going to be a Playlounge exclusive and should be released sometime in 2006. There will only be 50 of these available, so it's VERY limited.
What’s there to say about the new Joe Ledbetter figures from Wheaty Wheat Studios? I’m sure that everyone knows that they are the hottest figures on the market right now. And we also realize that these are very limited edition toys.
For this review, I would like to focus on Mr. Bunny. He was first released way back in September. Well…the limited edition (50 piece) Lava Bunny was released in September. That sold out almost instantly, with those Lava Bunnies going to 50 lucky folks who attended the Kidrobot release event.
Mr. Bunny and Snow Bunny have just recently hit the market. They keep popping up little by little at lucky online shops…only to sell out moments later. Mr. Bunny (the yellow one) is limited to 400 pieces and the Snow Bunny (the blue one) is only a run of 100 figures. Your best bet for snagging one is to quit your job, sit in front of the computer, and bookmark all existing vinyl toy shops.
Ooo...Suckadelic swings once again and hits yet another home run. Enough with the baseball analogies...here is the latest bootleg masterpiece from Suckadelic - the King of Bootlegs. Meet the Galactic Jerkbag, the world's most annoying Supervillain! This version is limited to only 48 pieces so you best act fast!
We received some pics of Big Puff Maki - from Enjin Factory's Instant Sapien line - hitting the streets and bars of Hong Kong. We're really looking forward to the release of this figure. It's part Bruce Lee, a little James Bond, and in a little Rudy Ray Moore and mix it up in a vinyl mold.
Here is your chance to win a Black 10-inch Dalek Ice Bot from 3DRetro.com and Plastic and Plush. So how can you be entered in this contest, you ask? Just send an email to me at email@example.com. That's all it takes! A completely random winner will be chosen from all entries. Only one entry per person, contest only available to residents of the US. All entries are due by 11:59 pm EST on Saturday December 17th. Winners announced on Dec. 18th.
And if you include your Toy Award Picks in the email, you will be entered twice!!
McFarlane Toys recently launched two series of figures: Dragons and Military. Both of these original series of toys are still in their infant stages. This is the 2nd series of McFarlane’s Dragons and there have only been 3 series of McFarlane’s Military.
McFarlane’s Military 2nd Tour of Duty is made of 6 unique figures. Three branches of the military are represented: Army, Military and Navy. This line is the most detailed ensemble of military inspired figures out there.
My favorite figure in this line is the Army Paratrooper figure. Just check out the details! The only strange thing is…doesn’t it look like Dave Coulier was the model used for this figure? I think the sculptor was watching a little too much Full House.
McFarlane’s Dragons Series 2 is known as The Quest for the Lost King.
There are 6 figures in the series. The two standouts in this line are
the Komodo and the Sorcerers Dragon (pictured below). These figures
are extremely detailed…like all of the McFarlane work.
Terminal Press has joined forces with the folks at Planet 6. They are currently putting the finishing touches on the premiere issue of the Phony-Baloney comic book. It'll be nice to have a little back story to go along with the hilarious line of law enforcement pigs. Look for the comic to launch early 2006.
