Who is Mirus?

Protorevealed1

Dave Quiles and Outta My Mind Creations have introduced us to their Mirus sculpts.  This might be one of the most unique figures to come down the pike.  The arms are attached and swivel using magnets and Mirus also have little mirrors on their faces. 

Dave had the following to say "I then started thinking about the mirror and what it represented so
I thought to make him outwardly reflect the way people sometimes act,
so I gave him wings and hidden horns with a hidden mirror underneath to
reinforce the idea that it's about looking at oneself."

There are so many versions to choose from, I'm not sure which will be my favorite!

Pre-Order Brendan Monroe’s Sours

Newadd

Glen over there at Android 8 is now taking pre-orders for one of the most highly anticipated figures of 2006 - Brendan Monroe's Sours.  Hopefully he has enough mailbox space, because the demand for these figures are going to be crazy.  The Brown and the Green versions are what are up for pre-order.  They will run you $50 each - plus shipping.  Each figure stands at 7.5 inches in height and has a removable face.  How cool is that?  To get on the list email Glen at glen@android8.com.

MAD Hemp T-shirts

Spxmadx100_flyer

Socialpest.com is going to be cranking out 100 hemp t-shirts designed by toy designer MAD.  The folks from socialpest are encouraging people to sign up for their mailing list as they will notify those people first of the t-shirt sale.  And I probably would recommend not trying to smoke the hemp t-shirts...

Giant Uglydog Spotted in NYC!

Uglydogbig

Yes, that's a gigantic Uglydog in the window of Forbidden Planet (at the corner of 13th and Broadway in New York City).  Just in time for Valentine's Day, giant Uglydog has made a...well...giant debut.  What better way to show your loved one you care?

Mixy and Joe Packaging

Mixyfront

If you haven't seen the Mixy and Joe action figures from UK based comic designer Chronic Fatigue (and produced by Wheaty Wheat) - where have you been?  These figures definitely lend themselves to the designer scene with their unique zombie-like look.  Here are some sneak peeks as to what the packaging for these figures will be.  I am a big fan of the retro-carding...and the artwork is very cool.

Have you been wondering what the rocket ship that will house the Insurgents Wilderness Gruppo mini figure line will look like?  Rocket World had a very early prototype at this past summer's Comic Con.  Patrick has sent along some photos of the prototype in production.  Ooo...we can't wait for these to be finished!
