DKE reveals Pobber, Kronk's Bad Ass for SDCC
by Brian Szabelski

I'm sure you guys and gals remember Pobber teasing us with Kronk's Bad Ass vinyl figure? Well, the design is now completely out of the bag, as DKE Toys announced Bad Ass as one of their SDCC exclusives in the Forest colorway. And yes, Bad Ass is a giant robot ape with spikes on its fists. It has a reputation to uphold, after all.

Bad Ass Forest ver. will be a 40-piece run for DKE's SDCC booth (#5045) and a retail price of US$95. It'll be nice to see this up close and in person at SDCC, but I want to hear your thoughts on the final design. Let us know in the comments if you like it!

Pobber Toys have given us the 411 on their next release, the Shadow Jaguar Knight. Revealed earlier in June, the 9-inch-tall piece from Jesse Hernandez is a menacing Aztec-inspired warrior. He's still carrying his macuahuitl and shield, ready to tear some fools asunder.

Limited to 85 pieces, Shadow Jaguar Knight drops Nov. 8 at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. GMT) for US$115 on Pobber.com. That price includes free worldwide shipping, too. What say you, Tomopeeps? And remember, answering poorly may lead to a macuahuitl flying toward you.

by Brian Szabelski

The one great thing about the designer toy world is that there are so many new companies out there right now doing amazing things. One of those companies that has caught my eye happens to be Pobber Toys, based in Singapore and a frequently featured maker on the front page of Tomopop. It was just last month that Pobber rolled out a new look for MAD's Mork with the first Dr. Morkenstein figure, and now they're set to release a second colorway with the Pajamas Version.

So is this new look for Dr. Morkenstein worth your time? Hit the jump to check everything out and see for yourself!

Art Attack Toys, Pobber bring Dr. Morkenstein to life photo
Art Attack Toys, Pobber bring Dr. Morkenstein to life
by Brian Szabelski

April 1 is a day normally reserved for tricks, but how about a treat instead? Art Attack Toys and Pobber Toys have released a new colorway of MAD's Mork figure, Dr. Morkenstein, featuring Mork in black with some glossy black fire accents on his helmet and a nefarious-looking mustache that curls up in the classic 1920s villain manner. He's also got the word "Beware" on the back of the helmet, and a radioactive symbol imprinted on his hands, with the word "Danger" on the cuffs.

You can pick up Dr. Morkenstein from the Art Attack Toys' shop for US$79.95. He's limited to only 50 pieces, too, so you might not want to wait around forever to get him. What do you think of this colorway, Tomopop readers?
