Concerned that your Loyal Subjects Megatron figure just isn't evil enough? Need something that truly hates both sides of the Autobot-Decepticon debate? Well, you're in luck: The Loyal Subjects have a new figure, and it's Neme...
Earlier this week, we showed off Chauskoskis' sculpt of Paulus Hyu's Nimbus, but it's not the first time the little dog has been made into a collectible. Indeed, Paulus has been churning out resin versions of the Daydreamer Nimbus for sometime, and they're adorable. The little 5-inch figures feature Nimbus (based on Paulus' dog) sleeping on his belly, dreaming of all kinds of wonderful things.
Coming up for sale next week on Dec. 9 is the Affected By Capitalism Daydreamer Nimbus, cast in black resin with some gold accents. A total of 30 will be available for US$100 each in Paulus' shop, as well as at a partial release at Koultoura Coffee in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Tim Clarke is the man who helped create the Sectaurs and Boglins toy lines back in the 1980s, and now, Toy Art Gallery is producing a new work of his in the designer realm. TOTIMS are totem-styled creations, made with Japanese vinyl and featuring some pretty detailed (and spooky) designs!
The TOTIMS themselves are made up of four pieces with connectors, topping out at 12 inches tall. The parts are all interchangeable, so you'll be able to mix and match with other TOTIM creatures and colorways in the future. You can pick them up right now in Toy Art Gallery's online shop.
Sergey Safonov has some new pieces up in his store; one is a smaller take on an old piece, and the other is less a collectible and more a nice candle holder.
First off, the older piece: Sergey has made a mini-cast of his The End of Man piece. It's the skull of Godot, except smaller! This one is only 3-inches-by-1.5-inches, made of porcelain and priced at US$40 each.
The second piece is his Preserver Bird, another porcelain creation priced at US$110. It is 5-inches-by-5-inches in size, and features both the porcelain bird sculpt (beautiful enough in its own right) and a dish that can be hidden inside the bird. Sergey suggests you can use it for hiding things, or use the dish as a nice candle holder. I think I'd put candy inside mine; what about you?
Need some new kaiju in your life? Step right up: Lulubell has got a new figure from Cojica Toys called Monoclon that's coming next week! The Nara, Japan-based Cojica Toys is a flesh-tone piece, about 7.5 inches tall and painted with some sky blue and orange accents. Also, it has a triceratops-like head ... though technically I should call it ceratopsid-like, except only dinosaur nerds would probably understand what I'm referring to (it's the family of dinosaurs the triceratops comes from).
Each of these Monoclon figures will be available on Dec. 1 at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. GMT) for US$65 each on the Lulubell shop.
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.
64Colors have revealed a new piece they're working on, a custom Gumdrop based on The Grinch's pooch, Max. That includes the one little antler tied to his head, which 64Colors have replicated and affixed to the top of the custom painted Gumdrop. And nope, they didn't forget the string; it's painted on there instead of being actual string, but it still looks appropriate for the custom.
These little ones will be in the 64Colors shop today, for a price to be announced. Anyone out there hoping to pick one up?
As teased but yesterday, JFury has a new figure, Voodoo Bunny. The first run of the 7-inch resin figure is a blue colorway, all hand-painted and limited to a total of 10 pieces. Looks pretty nice, both sculpt and paint-wise!
If you want one, they're on sale Friday at 9 a.m. Pacific (noon Eastern, 5 p.m. GMT) at JFury's shop for US$120.
After being revealed at Superfestival 63, The Disarticulators' Oozeball is getting a release this week. Inspired by the Madballs from the 1980s, the Oozeballs are sculpted by Zectron and are designed to have a little more modern, detailed, and designer-collectible style than the kid-friendly Madballs did. These initial Oozeballs are not squishable, however; apparently, there are still a few things to work out with the soft rubber versions, so these are made with a harder urethane rubber and don't ooze when squeezed.
The Oozeball release happens Friday at 9 p.m. GMT (4 p.m. Eastern, 1 p.m. Pacific) on the Man-E-Toys store. Prices are:
Open run Bootleg Neon and OG Green editions: US$25
Midnight Black edition, limited to 10 pieces: US$25
Custom-colored pieces: US$30
Custom piece with a Deathball as a set: US$30
Plus a bunch of custom-painted, one-off pieces in case none of those options appeal to you
Kidrobot has a new collection of items coming out, in collaboration with (RED) and the Keith Haring Studio, to mark World AIDS Day 2013. The (RED) Collection merchandise will have 5 percent of its sales go toward fighting AIDS in Africa and around the world ... which honestly seems a little bit on the low end, but maybe that's just me. Maybe it'll be a bit clearer when we know what the prices for these items are, something that hasn't been revealed yet.
Regardless, two of the items are 3-inch red-colored and 7-inch white-colored Kidrobot figures, which might actually be the biggest news. Why? Because they've got new, more Munny/Dunny-styled bodies, apparently.
There are also a few accessories in the form of a beanie, keychain and hat, all of which will be available when the Kidrobot (RED) collection arrives Nov. 30.
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).
