by Brian Szabelski

Brent Nolasco is known for his out-of-this-world creatures, so it's no surprise that his collab with Toy Art Gallery — Blood Thirst — looks a little out of this world. The newest version of it, the Night Stalker version, is the first painted edition of Blood Thirst (though one-off customs have been painted several times in the past) and has been done in a mostly grayscale palette. The only touches of color are some red accents around the eyes and back, which really help those parts stand out and makes Blood Thirst look even scarier.

The Night Stalker Blood Thirst will be in Toy Art Gallery's shop on Friday at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. GMT) for US$75 each.

New S.U.C.K.L.E. colorway invades Toy Art Gallery
by Brian Szabelski

Toy Art Gallery's newest release thinks you're a jerk, because it's the Sucklord's S.U.C.K.L.E. set in a new clear red colorway! Yes, the same 10 figures are available in a new colorway, and really, that's about all that's new here. Isn't that the case with most colorways, though? 

The TAG-exclusive set will be US$25 and on sale Wednesday at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. GMT).

Toy Art Gallery prepares its first release of 2014 photo
Toy Art Gallery prepares its first release of 2014
by Brian Szabelski

Toy Art Gallery is ringing in 2014 with a new designer toy release: the New Year's edition of Yakimon's Takoshi. The octopus helmet-wearing, Ultraman/Kamen Rider-inspired Takoshi is a glow-in-the-dark vinyl figure, standing 8 inches tall and painted with teal and red accents. He's also got a removable helmet and an octopus buddy at his side, ready to help him fight off the forces of evil, I'd presume.

Takoshi is releasing at Toy Art Gallery on Friday, Jan. 3, at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. GMT) for US$125.

Tim Clarke is the man who helped create the Sectaurs and Boglins toy lines back in the 1980s, and now, Toy Art Gallery is producing a new work of his in the designer realm. TOTIMS are totem-styled creations, made with Japanese vinyl and featuring some pretty detailed (and spooky) designs! 

The TOTIMS themselves are made up of four pieces with connectors, topping out at 12 inches tall. The parts are all interchangeable, so you'll be able to mix and match with other TOTIM creatures and colorways in the future. You can pick them up right now in Toy Art Gallery's online shop.
