The Midnight Channel: Happy To See You [NSFW]

Sometimes, when it's raining and the clock strikes midnight, you can enter the TV screen and be transported to a weird world where you have to face your true self. And sometimes, when the clock strikes midnight, you just end up being transported to a weird world where you have to face Good Smile Company's bizarre new vinyl figure and a sculpture that has plenty of teeth on it, where you see many of the things that didn't make the Tomopop front page ... until now.

Welcome to The Midnight Channel.

So what is The Midnight Channel all about? As I mentioned in my original proposal, it's intended to be , with a little bit of fun mixed in. Of course, this is a bit fluid and could change as time goes on and I get feedback from you guys, but the main overarching theme is that The Midnight Channel is where things that are perhaps odd, different, unexpected or otherwise forgotten are given a chance to be featured. It doesn't mean this is the only place you'll see such stuff on the site ... but it does mean this won't always be work safe. Tonight is one of those nights for certain.

So, onward into the odd and unexpected!

First up, remember that I showed off the box in the header that was Good Smile Company's newest vinyl toy? Well, here it is:

Yes, this is Die Antwoord's Evil Boy. Or as I called it when seeing it on Jeremy Brautman's blog ... Ghost Boner.

Only 45 were available at US$200 each, but never fear: red and black colorways are on the way! Kind of an odd sculpture and not necessarily one I know how to explain to my parents, so I don't expect to be buying this. Ever. But hey, if you like ghost with giant penises, it's perfect!

In the world of ThreeA Toys, the long awaited SXCLB ANKOU set is on the way ... and it comes with a to-scale strap-on. 

Yeah, I was serious about that. But really, knowing Ashley Wood's art and how it can sometimes go, it's not really that surprising.

Jason Freeny has a new piece called well ... Circle Teeth Thingy based on an illustration of his from college. Circle Teeth Thingy isn't the real name of the 16-inch piece, though, so he's going to let whoever buys it name it. You can find it in Jason's shop for US$1,750.

JShea's latest sculpture is an airship ... with a human face on the front of it. A giant floating head, perhaps? I'm not sure, but it does remind me of something you might find in a surrealist's paintings.

Looking for something a little less odd and a little more unexpected? How about Matt Cauley's custom figures? He's got a ton of them, including a few weird Batmen and an entire set of ones based on the Superfriends! That Black Manta one ... wow, I think I need to find out how to get that because I'm quite happy to see it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

... That sounded bad in the context of all this, didn't it?

Finally, for our first trip into the Midnight Channel, we need a little video, don't we? So why not give you something cool we've found: a compilation of the original Transformers G1 commercials, starting in 1984

Ahhhhh, sweet memories. Remember when toy commercials used to be cool?
