Buildman Ranic

Ranicposesend

Onell Design has released photos of their newest creation.  Buildman Ranic is a figure
"designed to build with, having no dead end parts."  Look for him to drop sometime this summer. 

Ranic is sporting the Phase Arm in a few of these pics.
His arms and lower legs are designed to have slightly different
aesthetics on each side(kind of like Kikaider) so that more
combinations can be created with multiple figures of the same
character. If you have two figures, you can create two symmetrical
looking styles. With connector points on the bottoms of his feet,
middle of his back, back of his head and even his fist holes, Ranic
should be fun to tinker with.

We can't wait for this and the Pheyden and Exellis colorways that will drop later this month.

Kicktoys…Block Figures?

Beitposter

Sam L sent in this little teaser from Kicktoys.  There's little to no information about the line, but we can tell that it's a block figure line.  It looks like one figure has a skateboard, one has a microphone and one has some sort of sword.  Do you ever find yourself tilting your computer screen to see if maybe you can see more from a different angle?  Maybe I just have too much time on my hands.  More info as it becomes available!

REVIEW: Pirate Cheshire Cat

Img_3623

Background

If you never saw the Disney version of Alice in Wonderland, you’ve probably seen or read some iteration of Lewis Carroll’s classic story.  One of the most popular characters from Walt Disney’s animated adaptation is the Cheshire Cat.  You remember…it’s the philosophical cat with the disappearing body.

Well, Span of Sunset teamed up with Disney to produce a line of vinyl Cheshire Cat figures.  They are based on the character from the 1951 animated feature film.  And for purposes of this review, we are looking at the Pirate Cheshire Cat, which is being distributed by Sideshow Collectibles.

Packaging

The packaging for this figure is great.  If the lid is closed, it just looks like a regular black box.  But as soon as you tilt the lid open, you see the Cheshire’s eyes and grin (including a gold tooth).  Inside, the figure is well protected inside of a plastic bag, with tissue paper and cardboard keeping it in place.

Wheaty Wheat’s Dolly

Dolly

Together with the SoCal artists at Med Fed, Wheaty Wheat
and Sideshow Collectibles are showing off the above photo of their upcoming Dolly vinyl figure.  The Sideshow Exclusive black edition Dolly will be available for pre-order in the near future. 

We saw the prototype for this figure back at VTN 2007 in San Diego.  It's a very impressive piece.  And it's reminding me that I need to go take an aspirin.
