The fine folks at Rivet have themselves a little exclusive figure that's going on sale this week. That would be the clear purple colorway of Alex Pardee's Bunnywith Affinity For Slave Women piece, which mashes up Bunny and Jabba the Hutt. It's not a very large figure, at only about 4 inches long, but it's also not too expensive at only US$12.
Only 100 of these will be available from Rivet, both in-store (1200 N. High St., Columbus, Ohio) and at Rivet's online shop starting on Thursday at noon Eastern (5 p.m. GMT, 9 a.m. Pacific).
According to one of Scott Tolleson's Instagram posts, a legend speaks of the first infected zombie, a boy named Rufus. In honor of the tragic lad, Scott has partnered up with Ink It Labs to create a unique wooden toy that will be on sale at DesignerCon tomorrow. What makes this toy so special, besides Scott's whimsical art style that can somehow make a tragic walking corpse look cute, is its three interchangeable heads. The heads go from a mildly zombie-looking "stage 1 infection" to a sort-of foreshadowing "stage 2 infection" to the final "totally f*cked infection." The heads slide into each other for easy storage and display.
Rufus will be limited to 50 pieces. The price is currently unknown. You can find him at Ink It Labs' booth (#800) during the convention.

Last night, Yukari of Flat Bonnie revealed several of the goodies that will be available at her DesignerCon booth (#705) this weekend in Pasadena, California. One big announcement is the debut of her collaboration with Nathan Hamill, turning his popular Octopup character into a plush known as "OctoPup - Octoplush." The joint project was first teased in August. This handmade plush with be available to pre-order first at the con and then online on Flat Bonnie's site starting on November 11. The cost to pre-order is US$100 plus shipping. They will ship starting January 6, 2014. The 12 inch plush is limited to 10 pieces. Each plush comes with a special, numbered tush tag.
As for special plushes available to take home straight from DesignerCon, Flat Bonnie will be bringing two con-exclusive toys. The first is Baron Von Battington, a monocle-wearing, mustachioed, 16 inch wide bat. The monocle even has a silver chain! This dapper fellow is limited to 10 pieces, each costing US$25. The second is a 13 inch tall, fluffy white woolly mammoth with shimmery tusks aptly named Ice Tusk Woolly. This one will be limited to 5 pieces, each costing US$50. Both of these characters have DesignerCon-exclusive numbered tush tags along with a special con-exclusive signed and numbered hangtag.
It looks to be quite a spiffy line-up so be sure to stop by booth #705 to see these adorable flatties for yourself. Be there or be flat!
Oh goodness, DesignerCon is this weekend! To celebrate the upcoming excitement, let's have a look at Fat Rabbit Farm's con-exclusive plushes, Angry Babee and God of Thunder Babee. As you may have gathered, these two new toys dress the company's mascot, the large bunny Babee, as Marvel's Hulk and Thor. Both versions are handmade from fleece with felt accents. Each plush stands at 14 and a half inches tall.
Angry Babee has a slightly larger edition size than God of Thunder Babee; the former consisting of 20 pieces and the later made up of 15 pieces. As such, God of Thunder Babee costs a tad more (US$55) than Angry Babee (US$48). Attendees have some tough decisions to make as to which plush to purchase. Unless you choose to buy both, I guess, which is certainly an option.
You can find Angry Babee and God of Thunder Babee along with other Fat Rabbit Farm goodies at their DesignerCon booth (#516).

Just days ago, we discussed the teaser images of Scott Tolleson and Lana Crooks' Deadbeet plush that had been cropping up on Instagram. We now have clear images of the plush along with all the juicy information we had been craving. First of all, the official name of this plush critter is Deadbeet: Fresh Edition. He stands a whopping 18 inches tall and is 12 inches wide. He is also posable, as you may have guessed from the header image. Each Deadbeet: Fresh Edition plush is handmade with hand-dyed wool and fleece materials and comes with a signed and numbered wooden tag.
Now, for the nitty-gritty. The Deadbeet: Fresh Edition is limited to just 5 pieces, with each plush costing US$200. They can be purchased at this weekend's DesignerCon at booth #233.
Fans of designer toys are no doubt familiar with Scott Tolleson's Deadbeet soft vinyl figure. The toy has graced the pages of Tomopop more than a few times and even had its own custom art show at Los Angeles' Toy Art Gallery. So, what is next for the monstrous vegetable? Why, a plush, of course! Scott has teamed up with plush artist Lana Crooks for this very special endeavor.
Over the past week or so, Scott's and Lana's Instagram pages have posted teaser images of the Deadbeat plush (more on Lana's than on Scott's). Not much is known about the plush other than that it will be found at California's DesignerCon, taking place on November 9 and 10. I expect more images and information will be posted as we get closer to the con.
I am certainly thrilled with this reveal and the Deadbeet has skyrocketed to the top of my DesignerCon wish list. What do you think about the new direction of this character?
