Kidrobot announces (RED) Collection photo
Kidrobot announces (RED) Collection
by Brian Szabelski

Kidrobot has a new collection of items coming out, in collaboration with (RED) and the Keith Haring Studio, to mark World AIDS Day 2013. The (RED) Collection merchandise will have 5 percent of its sales go toward fighting AIDS in Africa and around the world ... which honestly seems a little bit on the low end, but maybe that's just me. Maybe it'll be a bit clearer when we know what the prices for these items are, something that hasn't been revealed yet.

Regardless, two of the items are 3-inch red-colored and 7-inch white-colored Kidrobot figures, which might actually be the biggest news. Why? Because they've got new, more Munny/Dunny-styled bodies, apparently.

There are also a few accessories in the form of a beanie, keychain and hat, all of which will be available when the Kidrobot (RED) collection arrives Nov. 30.

by Brian Szabelski

Vannen Watches' latest is a new timepiece with art designed by Kronk called Rat Basterd. Using Kronk's style — which is based off tattoos and as I just learned, old-school animation — the watch is his take on a Mickey Mouse-like character, which you can see on the watch face. The strap is more of Kronk's tattoo-styled work, and it all has a very neat four-color palette to make details pop out. 

You can find the Rat Basterd watch at both Vannen and Mintyfresh for US$75/€64.95. Only 150 have been made in total, and five are a "stealth" variant that have black watch hands instead of white.

SDCC 2013: Hasbro - My Little Pony
by Rio McCarthy

SDCC and I go way back, of course with a lot of us it does, but for a strange reason on my end. Every year it's my goal to get the My Little Pony exclusive of the year. This was the first year I was able to be there to obtain it myself, and DJ Pon-3 was what I wanted most. Needless to say with all the pushing of children, etc. that was going on I wasn't about to deal with the crowd at Hasbro myself, so I just took photos of it while I was there and ordered it online.

As for what other offerings Hasbro had to show us in the MLP world? There is a lot to talk about here, but the easiest thing to do is look at the entire gallery. There was an SDCC exclusive t-shirt with DJ Pon-3 on it as well that was US$25, but you still had to stand in the ridiculous line with a ticket, so I said, "Forget that." There were a few things that debuted here including a Princess Twilight Sparkle that is adorned with Swarovski Crystals to match the SDCC exclusive DJ Pon-3. It will be a Hasbro Toy Shop exclusive and release on August 20th.

There was also a set for Toys R Us that features Queen Chrysalis (or Queen Chrysalia as it's written on the tag... which I'm hoping is just a typo) and several other ponies. It will retail for US$34.99, and will be available August 1st. A lot of the toys they showed were either available now, or would be available in August. There was a huge Princess Twilight that was on display as well that lights up, talks, moves and sings, so that should be interesting to see in person when it hits stores.

A lot of what they had on display were things we've talked about here, or were already pretty well known about. There were a lot of lines that were continuing with their releases as usual, including the Crystal Motion Ponies. As always, I can't wait to get the new Rarity figures! Check out the gallery for all the rest of the goodies.
