Dudebox have unveiled their next Dude and collaboration: Niark1's Thunda! Niark is an artist from France with a tribal style to his art, and Thunda certainly looks the part. It almost reminds me of something you might se...

A look at ToyCon UK's wares and exclusives
by Brian Szabelski

ToyCon UK opens up this weekend, and many of the major British designer artists will be in attendance (with some surprises, too). Add in the fact that many will be bringing their own pieces to Baden-Powell House, and you have a list of exclusives and releases too long to mention.

Well, we've tried, at least. After the jump, you'll find an extensive list, outlining just about everything (and everyone) we know to expect for the show. Some are more specific or detailed than others (based on what the artists have released), so there may still be updates to come this week. In any case, for the rundown so far, you'll want to head past the jump.

Custom Made Monday: A new coat of paint photo
Custom Made Monday: A new coat of paint
by Brian Szabelski

Today's my birthday, and as such, I figured today would be as good a day as any to announce the rebirth of Munn-day Morning Recap into a new, expanded feature — Custom Made Monday.

Custom Made Monday expands on what Munn-day Morning Recap did; no longer will we just be rounding up Munnys and Dunnys, but a full assortment of customs from all over the place. You might see custom figures from Jin Saotome; Munnys from notable artists in the designer toy scene; custom gunpla, figmas and Nendoroids and garage kits when they cross our radar; and more. A lot of customs of all sorts will still get featured in their own posts on Tomopop too, so don't worry; they're not all going away. Heck, MMR may even return if we have a particularly good reason for doing so.

For the first Custom Made Monday, we're giving you a taste of what to expect. This time, we have custom designer toys alongside Nendoroids, action figures, even prop replicas that have been made by hand. Not every Custom Made Monday will be this big ... but since this is #1, why not? Hit the jump to check it all out!

NYCC 2012: Dudebox

Dudebox reveals Ron English's King Monster for NYCC
by Brian Szabelski

Dudebox has dropped another bit of info about their NYCC releases, and this one is a pleasant surprise. At the show, they'll be debuting a new 7.5-inch Big Dude designed by Ron English called King Monster. Yes, that's a giant half-chicken, half-Tyrannosaurus rex monster hatching from an egg on the front. Ron, however, is a big dinosaur buff, so it's only natural that he went with a dino creation for Dudebox, not to mention the nice choice of the black-and-white palette with splashes of color. 

I'm not normally a huge fan of Ron's stuff, but this one is a different case. It's great! If you want to pick one up, you can get them at NYCC (Booth #2915) or online (Regular store | U.S. store) for a price that hasn't been disclosed yet. Ron's also going to be signing at the Dudebox booth on Friday, Oct. 12 from 4 p.m. to 5 p.m. Eastern and Saturday, Oct. 13 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Eastern.
