Aaron Childs, a cardboard artist, will be an exhibitor at Designer Con 2014. Designer Con takes place November 8th and 9th at the Pasadena Convention Center. Yes...that is ever so quickly approaching. And if you think Designer Con is only vinyl toys...you'd be very mistaken. Some of Aaron's Designer Con Exclusives are shown below.
Artist Kasey Tararuj (One Eyed Girl) has created five new pieces for Clutter Gallery's "Color Theory" show, which opened this past Saturday (September 13th 2014). All of the following are available for purchase at from Clutter.
All of the descriptions below are from the artist.
Dorkosaurus "Dorko" Rex and Neandersloth are my prehistoric pet and owner. Dorko is a custom Raaar and Neandersloth is made from some random micro munnyworld figure. I'm obsessed with dinosaurs so I'm really excited about them, especially Dorko's dumb looking smile.
Bizmo and Buddy are a Custom 7" and Micro Munny. A personal favorite.
Porcey the Horsie is a Custom Tokidoki Unicorno. I've been itching to make a carousel horse for years so I'm stoked to have finally done so.
Camo Cameron is a 4" Custom Foomi, my silly little chameleon.
Neddy Needlenose is a 4" Custom Rooz, my cute little chubby hummingbird.
Attaboy joins Ayleen and George for this week's edition of Toy Break. Episode 324: No Limits! takes a look at Muju Tree Spirits, Mumpkin, some classic toy goodies, and much more.
The film that freaked me out as a 4-year old (and cyclically freaked out my 4-year old) will be immortalized in toy form thanks to Funko. The Pop! Movies: E.T. series will include three characters from the 1982 film. Elliott, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, and Gertie should all be hitting store shelves later this month. Unfortunately, none of these will come with toy Reese's Pieces.
The Kappa is one of Japan’s yokai and are said to inhabit the country’s rivers and streams.
Legendary trouble makers, Kappa are responsible for everything from general harassment to drowning people and animals, kidnapping children, and the ravishing of women. Now, not all Kappa are mischievous, murdering, kidnappers. Throughout history there have been some who have befriended human beings, helping and even teaching them.
Satori Kappa was designed and sculpted by artist Dave Dick. It was cast in resin and finished by the folks at Pretty in Plastic. The completed figure will be signed, numbered, and limited to a run of only 40 pieces.
Also, Dave will be holding a giveaway...giving away one free Satori Kappa figure to one of his followers on Instagram on release day.
Funding for the Hotline Miami - Jacket Figure has only a few more days left on Kickstarter. The project will be funded this Saturday - September 20th 2014 - at 1:44PM ET. They've already more than doubled their funding goal. Also, a number of stretch goals have been reached. Those stretch goals include several new mask heads (if you've played the game, you know that changing up your mask is half of the fun).
In case you didn't have enough Uglydoll products in your life, Pretty Ugly and Franco Manufacturing Co., Inc. have partnered up to create an extensive line of bedding and bath products. So I'm guessing if you wanted Wage sheets, an Ice-Bat towel, and maybe some Ox toilet paper...you're in luck. (Though, I'm going to guess they won't be producing any T.P.)
Lullubell has announced a special pre-order of the Galaxy Commanders by Skullmark. The Galaxy Commanders Lulubell "Galaxy Black" Exclusives measure 9.5" tall and are cast in Galaxy Black unpainted Sofubi.
Commander Cytron, Commander Dagan, and Commander Nizard are currently available to pre-order for $65.99 each. They're slated to arrive around November or December 2014.
From Tomenosuke + Circus Posterus, comes the new T+CP mini sofubi Pocket Sideshow series. The release of the series will take place on October 9th 2014 (via Tomenosuke), with advance sales planned for TTF 2014. Orders from North America will need to go through Circus Posterus.
The four figures included in the series are (in order as pictured above): Snowshoe (Amanda Louise Spayd); Sproot (Chris Ryniak); Otto (Brandt Peters); Penelope (Kathie Olivas). And this is the perfect colorway, considering how the release will take place close to Halloween.
