Lunartik is releasing a special Christmas brew

Now that Thanksgiving is officially over, I’m not annoyed anymore by all the Christmas movies and commercials. Bring on the holiday cheer! That’s why Lunartik’s newest figure is positively delightful. I&rsq...

Lunartik has just released a bunch of artist proofs of his Doctor Who figures, just in time for the 50th anniversary. Produced by Titan Entertainment, most are still in stock, including a few chases and at least one version of all 11 Doctors. The War Doctor and new Doctor aren't in there yet, but give Lunartik a little time to sculpt John Hurt and Peter Capaldi's visages.

In any case, you can picked up the signed and numbered proofs from Series 1 and Series 2 in Lunartik's shop right now.

Lunartik serves up a Witches Brew Tea in a Cup

Lunartik's Halloween Special Brew is now available, and it's bloody good. Or at least a bit bloody; the Witches Brew Mini Tea is a bit of undead vinyl with a eye that's fallen out of its socket. Lunartik has made 213 of these...

SDCC 2013: DKE Toys

Most of what DKE Toys had at their SDCC booth this year were the exclusives for the show, eschewing the gigantic booth they've had in years past. That meant that unlike years past, there were no tiny surprises tucked away in ...

As SDCC draws nearer, the time when DKE Toys starts releasing their exclusives info is upon us. Like last year, they're planning to release info every day, and it starts with the first exclusive's reveal: Lunartik's Mys'tea'rious. The latest Special Brew is a superhero-themed Tea in a Cup, limited to 200 pieces in total, but only half of that — 100 — will be at SDCC.

The release is taking place at DKE's booth, #5045, with a retail price of US$22. I think while it's a repaint of the regular Tea in a Cup, the superhero theme fits really well with how Mys'tea'rious has been designed.

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.

Lunartik's Doctor Who designs return for Series 2
by Brian Szabelski

You might remember that back in January, we posted about Lunartik's Doctor Who mini-figures, but he's not done with just one series. Spotted by SpankyStokes, Series 2 has been revealed by a Forbidden Planet pre-order, and it's centered around the Tenth Doctor.

The series will include the TARDIS, two different Tenth Doctors, Vashta Nerada, the adorable little Adipose, a Weeping Angel (don't look away from it ... ever), the Clockwork Robot, Cyber Leader, two different Daleks, Sontaran, and Davros. They'll be releasing in August, it seems, for around £7.99.
