TOYSREVIL gets a custom version of Storm King Machine
by Brian Szabelski

Filipino urban artist Quiccs has a resin piece by the name of Storm King Machine, which mixes Stormtroopers with 1970s-style anime mechs (or Gurren Lagann, if you're looking for a contemporary simile). The newest version is a collab with TOYSREVIL: the Evil King Machine, done in the site's red and black colors. 

Beyond the new colorway, each of the 20 Evil King Machines will come signed and numbered by Quiccs. It's only the second time this figure has been available, with the first white variant appearing at Singapore Toy, Games and Comic Convention earlier in September.

Evil King Machine is priced at US$70 (plus shipping) and releases at noon Singapore time (4 a.m. UTC, midnight Eastern) on Wednesday, Oct. 8 in the TOYSREVIL shop.

Nicky Lewis' wooden DIY figure is Fo' Chisel photo
Nicky Lewis' wooden DIY figure is Fo' Chisel
by Brian Szabelski

Fo' Chisel, a wooden and resin DIY figure from by UK-based designer Nicky Lewis, has just been released to the public for purchase. The 6-inch figure design's pretty simple: a cube-shaped head, along with a round body and arms that have shoulder articulation. Still, artists like Jon-Paul Kaiser, A Little Stranger and Planet Domu have made some interesting customs on the platform already, which you can check out in the gallery.

If you like one, you can find the wodden Fo' Chisel for £40 and the resin Chisel for £14 in the Fo' Chisel shop. What's your thoughts on Fo' Chisel, Tomopop readers?

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - statues and maquettes part 2

Continuing with Sideshow coverage, here's the rest of their licensed statues and maquettes. Star Wars characters featured heavily, as did Marvel. The booth also had a smattering of horror and other movie characters. Most of the experience is about simply gaping in awe at the larger scale figures (especially the legendary scale ones).
