Is that Street Fighter Series 2? Oh no ... someone go hide my credit cards
In September 2011, I reviewed the Street Fighter blind-boxed series from Kidrobot and found them to be ... eh, okay. Nothing too terrible, but since the first figures came out in 2011, things have been quiet, and I figured Ki...

Custom Made Monday: A new coat of paint

Feb 11 // Brian Szabelski
Sigma by Jin Saotome Carrying over the old tradition from MMR, we start with the customs featured in the header. First up, Jin Saotome's custom Sigma from Mega Man X. Jin is apparently an impatient man, and not willing to wait for Bandai's D-Arts figure, he has made his own in a Marvel Legends style. It's 8.5 inches tall, and uses parts from the DC Direct Parademon and Lex Luthor, Orange Lantern Luthor's head, and capes from Magneto and Mr. Sinister. The beam saber is crafted from a acryllic rod and the whole thing looks fantastic. Knock Knock, the Trebuchet Mammophant by f+ Next up, we have f+'s latest commissioned piece. There's a Dunny acting as the rider, but the entire piece is actually a highly customized 10-inch Labbit. While the trebuchet is small and only made of wood ... it actually works and slings a 3-inch Dunny head projectile, according to Josh.  Don't believe me? Watch it in action: I'm in love with it. Josh says he's going to make more Mammophants now that he knows he can do something like this, including a ballista and traditional catapult. I await them eagerly. Yukata Miku Nendoroid by unknown artist Sadly, I don't have an idea who is the artist behind this one, as the FG-Site page doesn't list the artist's name. But gosh, it's an adorable rework of Yukata Miku, giving her a more summer festival-style attire, complete with new accessories like the apple on a stick and cotton candy. Wish this could have been the original release! [via Nendonesia] Custom Mortal Kombat props by Mint Condition Customs Custom props aren't normally Mint Condition's thing (he generally does action figures), but he's done three prop replicas for a client: Sub Zero's ice ball, Liu Kang's fireball, and Scorpion's spear. Each one is meant to be a 1/1-scale replica, and both elemental blasts feature light-up capabilities. Be sure to check out the links above for all the WIP details and more specifics! Rusty Flamethrower and A Dude Monster, both by TazX TazX sends us two customs he did recently: a 3-inch Dunny named Rusty Flamethrower that, true to its name, is rusty and has a flamethrower; and A Dude Monster, a Dudebox figure that he's turned into a large-mouthed monster. Pretty simple to guess which is which, right? If you're interested, both customs are in TazX's shop. A Dude Monster is US$25, and Rusty Flamethrower is US$40. Wrath by Phu! Phu!'s latest, for the Art Without Borders show on Feb. 23 at Art Whino, is an 8-inch Qee mech he's calling Wrath. Carrying a bladed shield and with a hidden Gatling gun in its belly, the Rebel Pilot-helmed Wrath features a different color palette than usual from Phu! This one is camoflauged in red and yellow with a military green backdrop. Some of the found objects Phu! used look really good on this piece, like the nobs or caps on the back tank and the extra gears in the head. Water Snake 2013 Qee by Patrick Wong From Patrick Wong, we've got a 5-inch Toyer Mini Qee here to celebrate the new Year of the Snake in 2013. Mixing in the zodiac element of water to go with the snake, and the end result is this cool blue and black custom that means business. It's available, too, if you want it: the price is US$100 in Patrick's shop. 420 by melodreama The latest from melodreama is a custom Munny for a good little cause: she's made it for a Kickstarter that starts today for a vinyl documentary by Dope Vinyl. It'll be one of many customs offered us as Kickstarter rewards; stay tuned! We'll have a post up on it a little later tonight, probably. TMNT Casey Jones, Metalhead and Super Shredder by PackRat Studios While Playmates may be announcing new TMNT figures at Toy Fair 2013, PackRat Studios has made their own, featuring Casey Jones, Metalhead and Super Shredder as they appear in the Nickelodeon cartoon. I like the detailing work on Metalhead's wiring, and Super Shredder does look like someone you wouldn't want to cross ... though I don't know how he gets through doors with those big claws of his. Maybe he doesn't use doors. Jungle Critter Customs by David Stevenson From David Stevenson, we have these custom mini Buff Monster figures. Each of the figures is a totally different design, and they'll all be at ToyCon UK in April for £5 each. I love some of the whimsy in these designs, and how they feel like they might be just as easily found on the pages of a child's story book as they would on a custom designer toy. Nugglife Dunnys by Ian Ziobrowski Ian Ziobrowski has recently completed four new additions to his Nugglife universe, all Dunnys: There's Leafy, which I believe is a customized version of DrilOne's Dunny due to the inclusion of his gas mask. And it's fase to say with a name like Leafy, he may be a fan of lighting it up; Second is Waxy, who happens to make certain oils that are popular within the Nugglife world. Ian notes that Waxy's eyes never seem to be open, and he's not sure why that is; Waxy's never told him; Third is a series of Nuggyeaters, yetis who live within the Nugglife world and likely live up to their names, if their designs are any indication. New to the yeti crew is a cyclops yeti. Finally, there's a custom Ian did for Shawn Wigs' series, taking a resin Dunny and turning it into the Nuggy Inspector, a little robot who helps Nuggs figure out the cream of the crop of his stash. It's available as part of the blind-boxed Da Crusher custom Dunny series in for US$100 Bowser Dunny by Ian Ziobrowski Ian's also done some commissions this year, and one of them, happens to be this little 3-inch Dunny based off the King of Koopas. The little guy still has his spiky shell and comes with a fireball accessory, though it leaves me wondering; could you do an 8-inch Bowser and have a series of 3-inch Munnys or Dunnys as the Koopalings? I think that'd be an awesome idea, but please feel free to leave dumb old Bowser Jr. out of the mix. Custom Flight Dunny by Scott Kinnebrew Scott Kinnebrew has a few new things going on, and one of those happens to be a quick customization he did of kaNO's Flight Dunny. Not only was it a little bit of a repaint, but Scott's also crafted some new wings for the Starscream-inspired Dunny. I think the new paint job adds a nice weathered effect and it looks nice, but sadly, I can't buy it; it's already sold out. Scott does take commissions, though, so be sure to contact him if you've got something you're interested in having done. If you're willing to wait a little bit, though, Scott mentioned to us that he'll have some new pieces in the upcoming Vinyl Thoughts Nation blind-boxed series. The series, which releases at the beginning of March, will feature 5 Banditos and a Senorita chase all customized by Scott; we'll have some more info and perhaps some photos coming soon on that. Electro Spawn by Scott Kinnebrew Also new from Scott is a customized 8-inch Medicom Hamburger Head Spawn figure, featuring a bright new paint job (with lovely pink accents for fighting the agents of Heaven, I see). This custom is available in Scott's shop for $US(PRICE) at the moment, with free shipping for purchases within the U.S. Ren the Moth by Stitches and Glue Finally, we have another custom QiQi for the Creo Design QiQi show at ToyCon UK, this one from Stitches and Glue. They're normally more known for their creative plushes and the like, and this certainly fits the bill even though it's a vinyl figure. They've taken the regular QiQi body and flocked it, added some antennae and other hand sculpted features, attached some taxidermied eyes, and created some gorgeous mesh wings. The whole thing sits upon a custom tree branch base, and as a note to it's size, the QiQi is only 3 inches tall, so this is a pretty big piece. Definitely one of the more eye-catching customs I've seen for the show so far; I'm looking forward to seeing more of them! [That wraps up this week's installment of Custom Made Monday! If you have any customs you'd like to see featured, or just spot something that's eye-catching and fits the feature, be sure to e-mail us and let us know!]

Kidrobot's SDCC releases officially announced

Jun 05 // Brian Szabelski
Preview night: Futurama Hypnotoad (pre-release, US$39.95, review coming in the future hopefully) and Homer Simpson Buddha figure (US$50, limited to 500 pieces, SDCC exclusive, comes with Homer holding prayer beads and a pretzel). Here's hoping the Hypnotoad turns out to be awesome. Thursday, July 12: 7-inch Cyborg Labbit Excelsior Edition (SDCC exclusive, US$75, limited to 300 pieces). As you might guess, Chuckboy is the artist behind this one, and it'll probably look like a cross between his popular 2Tone Dunny and a Labbit. Chuckboy is also doing a signing from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, July 13: Mahākāla Dunny Prosperity Edition (SDCC exclusive, US$100, limited to 300 pieces). Andrew Bell is the artist behind this Dunny, taking the protector deity Mahākāla from Indian and Nepalese culture, the four-armed Dunny (yes, you can see the extra arms!) comes with a trident accessory, extra set of articulated arms, and removable Dunny skull belt. Andrew is also doing a signing from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. Can't wait to see this in color. Saturday, July 14: Skullslinger Tuco Edition (SDCC exclusive, US$100, limited to 300 pieces). The most obvious one of the bunch is a new piece from Huck Gee, featuring his Skullslinger character. Standing 11 inches tall, it's clearly the biggest piece at the show, and considering it's also a Huck piece ... it's the one most likely not to last the day. Sunday, July 15: Exclusive handprinted T-shirts (SDCC exclusive, US$38, limited to 78 shirts). What is this? T-shirts? Yes, taking a break on the last day of the convention from vinyl, Kidrobot is tapping into its fashion side with some limited-edition handprinted heather grey men's T-shirts (ranging in size from small to XXL). Each one is being handmade by Ryan the Wheelbarrow from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m.
