Ultra_01

Hong Kong artist Ultraman's 8" tall Ultraking vinyl is produced by Play Imaginative.  The figure comes dressed in a studded outfit with a stylish mohawk and shades.  Who doesn't love a primate who sports a pinky ring and Members Only jacket?  OK...maybe it's not Members Only, but it is stylish.

REVIEW: Poe the Ugly Dragon

Img_3733

Background

The Uglydoll family grew by five at the International Toy Fair this past February, and David and Sun-Min revealed their latest designs.  Among those is Poe the Ugly Dragon.  Poe has the distinct notoriety of being the first new Uglydoll character of 2008.

Poe is an Ugly Dragon. Ugly Dragons come from the Ugly Dragon Mountain.  But Poe has left the safety of his caverns is search of his big dreams.  The other day he had a big dream about a big scoop of Ice Cream. Chocolate.

While most Ugly Dragons sleep all day and fly all night, Poe is more into cars, trucks, bikes, and anything that lets him sit down while moving. Flying is hard. You have to flap your wings around all the time! Can Poe roll with you?

Packaging

You might find Poe trapped inside of an enormous bag, but more than likely, he’ll be out on a shelf someplace.  Each plush does come with a tag that gives you some background info (which you probably just read up above).

Xbox 360 Mystery Munny

_dsc2464sm

Designed by artist Patrick Thompson and commissioned by Xbox Canada, this 18” Mega MUNNY and Xbox
360 console was unveiled at Toronto Fashion Week.  It's now available on ebay to help raise money for War Child Canada.

Thompson came
upon the design by posing himself the question: “Who embodies the world of
fashion better than the nauseatingly self-important, icon of creative genius –
KARL OTTO LAGERFELD?” Karl Lagerfeld, with his ever-present sunglasses and
trademark fan, comes to life in this MUNNY to celebrate Toronto Fashion Week by
gazing at his reflection in his Xbox 360 mirror. Lagerfeld is widely recognized
as one of the most influential fashion designers of the late 20th century. He
has collaborated with a variety of different fashion labels, with Chloé, Fendi
and Chanel the most notable.
