Stereotype toy series, limited-edition prints, wall stickers, and other
new work. The opening party takes place on February 28th from 6PM until 9PM, and the show runs until April 2nd.

Kick Some Biblical Butt!

Samson_2
Goliath

It's always funny seeing who displayed what at Toy Fair.  Even though the designer toy selection has dwindled down to about nothing - making the Urban Bazaar aisle more Bazaar than Urban - there are always a few companies who see what's "cool with the kids" and try to incorporate that into their own lines.

Hence the Spirit Warriors from one2believe.  The first two Biblical figures are Samson and Goliath.  Why not David and Goliath?  Or even better!  Davey and Goliath!  These stylized figures might make studying the Bible more entertaining for the kids.  But they just make me sorta sad...and anxious to see when the stylized lepers are released!

Vince Carter All-Star Vinyl

Home_asv_carter_2

Upper Deck is bringing New Jersey Nets Guard-Forward Vince Carter to All-Star
Vinyl
form. The next All-Star Vinyl
release at the Upper Deck Store is a slam-dunk tribute to the
high-flying Nets superstar. Platinum Club members will get the first
shot at buying the figures on Tuesday, February 26, at 9:15AM PST.  The general public will then be able to pick them up on Wednesday February 27 at the same time.  The figure is available in the following editions:

Away (Blue Jersey): 1,000 pieces
Alternate Away (Red Jersey): 500 pieces
Home (White Jersey): 500
pieces
Black Edition: 250 pieces

So, do you think they nailed Vinsanity?  I think the figure needs a little beard stubble.

Harriet the Bearded Lady – Purple Edition

Purple

Keep an eye out for the purple edition of Harriet the Bearded Lady from Carnival Cartoons.  The figure, designed by Jared and Garnet, will be limited to a run of 200 pieces.  Look for them to retail around $55.   So, do you like this or the original red version better? 

Wholesale inquiries can be directed to DKE Toys.

Tinbot: Artist Designed iPod Cases

Tinbots

Tinbot (previously known as Tinpod) is a new
generation of iPod cases.  It adds a little flavor while protecting
your iPod.  The TINBOT features original designs from: renowned vinyl toy designers MAD, SKET-ONE and CHRISTOPHER LEE;  DC Comic book master JOCK; urban artists PARRA, KURT KETCHUM and 7SLEEPR.  There will also be a blank white Tinbot for the customizers out there.

with a headphone and charging port.  The interior is lined with neoprene
padding to cushion the iPod in case of scrapes, bangs, drops, grinds,
slashes or any other wear and tear that daily life dishes out.  They are compatible with the iPod Video (30GB, 60GB and 80GB) and iPod Classic (80GB and 160GB) and will retail around $29.95.

REVIEW: Glyos System – Pheyden and Exellis

Img_3524

Background

There aren’t nearly enough retro looking toys out on the market.  But Onell Design has brought us back to the 80’s with their sci-fi inspired Glyos System line.  There are currently three different body designs available.  The figures that we will be reviewing here are the Nebula Pheyden (purple), Cyber Ghost Exellis (clear and orange) and the Solaris Exellis (glow in the dark red).

How a little back-story:

Rebelling against his tyrannical creators in the Glyos System, Prototype Sincroid Exellis battles for the freedom of his mechanical brethren as leader of the Lost Sincroid Revolution.

Hailing from the fabled Edge of Space in the mysterious Glyos System, Space Traveler Pheyden journeys through endless dimension securing the order of the infinite universe and patching holes in the fabric of time.

The Glyos Series figures are packaged in small, window front boxes that specify which character (either Exellis or Pheyden) is enclosed.  Each figure is secured in a plastic tray and includes a comic and a card with the characters listed on it.

Toy Fair Promo Video…featuring Uglydolls

The Uglydoll booth got some love in the official Toy Fair 2008 promo video.   You'll have to watch a little bit and see some of the goofy toys that people are trying to market.  But like the old Prego commercials always said...It's in there!

Mr. Toast…Slightly Crispy

Toast1
Toast2

Dan Goodsell is the artist responsible for bringing us The World of Mr. Toast.  It's a world full of food with personality.  Yep...bacon, eggs and muffins.  Good enough to eat.  Well, you probably don't want to try eating the new vinyl (might crack a tooth) or plush (too much fiber) version of Goodsell's Mr. Toast character.

The Mr. Toast vinyl is approximately 7" in height and limited to a run of 1,000 pieces.  Look for it to retail around $25.  And the Mr. Toast plush is the same height around should retail somewhere around $10.  Wholesale inquiries should contact DKE Toys.
