by Natalie Kipper

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.

Yoskay Yamamoto and Mighty Jaxx go Sideways
by Brian Szabelski

I've been wondering what Yoskay Yamamoto has been up to for a while, since we haven't heard much from him, but now we know what he's been up to: a collaborative piece with Mighty Jaxx he's calling Sideways. The 4-inch-by-7-inch-by-4-inch piece has a resin body and a wooden head, and it's pretty easy to see how the name came about. This is definitely something thaty's more collectible art piece than figure, but that big huge square head paired with the tiny little body does seem a bit humorous and at the very least eye-catching.

Pre-orders start Thursday at 10 a.m. Singapore time (which is 2 a.m. GMT, 10 p.m. today Eastern, 7 p.m. Pacific) at Mighty Jaxx's website. It's US$85 for one of these, and they're limited to 200 pieces in total.
