Sculpt & Swap returns with Scott Kinnebrew, Jason Chalker photo
Sculpt & Swap returns with Scott Kinnebrew, Jason Chalker
by Brian Szabelski

Urban Vinyl Daily's Sculpt & Swap series is back for a third release, and this time around, Scott Kinnebrew and Jason Chalker are the featured artists. How the series works is that each artist sculpts five custom figures, then sends their figures to their collab partner, who paints the figures. So Scott sculpted figures that Jason painted, and vice versa. Both these guys have very different styles, and you can see it in the releases, with Jason's kit-bashing and sculptwork given a colorful paintjob by Scott, and Scott's creatures likewise painted into mythical beasts by Jason.

Want one? They're blind-boxed and on sale today at noon EST (4 p.m. GMT, 9 a.m. Pacific) for US$75 each. You can find them in the Urban Vinyl Daily store.

Tamiya, GSC to collaborate on RC car, Nendo Petit sets
by Brian Szabelski

While we're busy looking over all the plamo kits on display at the 51st Shizuoka Hobby Show, Good Smile Company has made a bit of a surprise announcement there. They will be partnering with one of the top remote control car makers in the world, Tamiya, to produce a series of model car-Nendoroid Petit bundles! The three announced are Racing Miku 2012 ver. with the open-top Astute; Toaru Kagaku no Railgun's Mikoto Misaka and the appropriately partnered Thunder Shot; and Saber with the appropriately partneres Super Sabre. 

The reason? Well, it's the 30th anniversary for Tamiya of their four-wheel drive RC cars. More info on these will be available in the July issue of Dengeki Hobby, which comes out next Friday, May 25. It's so odd to see two things I like kind of coming together into one, but at the same time, if it gets more folks interested in RC or model cars, I don't really mind it too much.
