Zombie Pet Dunny from PO

Zombiepet_homepage_soldout_v2

Argentinean
illustrator PO (Patricio Oliver) brings us a ghoul of a Dunny. Zombie Pet is kinda cute, if
it wasn't for all the flesh eating.  This GID, undead predator is made
of translucent, blue vinyl and printed with glow-in-the-dark bones, for
a distinctly ghoulish (but adorable) look. 

It's the latest Dunny design from Kidrobot.  And will definitely pique the interest of GID collectors...but why couldn't they have gone for blue GID?

Grunge Mickey VCD

900030_press01001

Sideshow is keeping the face sculpt of the Grunge Mickey VCD a secret.  Why?  I'm not really sure, but I can't imagine that Medicom and Disney decided to really mess with the iconic characters look.  Look for it to ship in the 3rd quarter of 2008...maybe then you'll get a shot at seeing what he looks like.  I think I would have went with the flannel shirt for the true grunge look.

Background

Cho Chang is a Ravenclaw student who is best known for being a number of Harry Potter's firsts: crush, kiss, girlfriend, and break-up.  Scottish actress Katie Leung plays the character in the Potter films.

Tonner Doll Company has produced a TCF based on Cho Chang at Hogwarts.  The Tonner Character Figure is an authorized likeness of Katie Leung and approved by Warner Bros. Studios.

Daniel "R5" Barojas sent in the above animated gif of his submission for this past weekend's Soopa Show.

I decided to paint a portrait
of my dear friend Jesus "Chucho" Armenta who passed tragically last
year in Mexico on our independence day September 15th.  I painted
Chucho as an Azteca warrior which in my eyes he fully was in real life.

TC-14 was a Cybot Galactica TC-series protocol droid with feminine programming stationed aboard the Trade Federation Lucrehulk-class battleship Saak'ak.  The character appeared in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

As Medicom expands their Vinyl Collectible Doll (VCD) line, they have decided to produce the TC-14 droid as a part of the collection.  Sideshow is currently distributing the VCD line in the United States.
