More Pushead Handpaints!!!

kVphp1 400x533

When Skullbrain buddy Minh posted up this pic of his newly acquired KvP (Kaws vs Pushead), I was already envious, but when I asked him if I could post this pic, he replied with even more Pushead handpaints and the Raider Skull Pirate for good measure. Now I just plain hate him.

Metal Gear Solid 20th Anniversary Kubricks!!!

IMG_1419 400x599

c'mon! Has it really been 20 years? Geebus, it only seems like yesterday when I first MGS on the PS....1 lol!!! Ground breaking game. I'm a big fan of MGS Kubricks too. But this 20th Anniversary set is the best yet. It contains what could be my all time favorite Kubrick which is Raiden. From worst in MGS2 to first in the upcoming MGS3!! From lame-ass to bad-ass in just one game!! lol!! His visor lifts up to reveal his intricate headgear. But the best are his katana swords. They both fit into his teeny tiny scabbards around his waist. too cool... Around $50 for the set of 5. Invisible chase figures not included.

My second favorite Kubrick in this set is Snake with Voodoo mask. I dug the outfit in the game and usually wore the mask.

26997b5d 400x299

Oh man, oh man!! Check out this little beauties!! Gargamel is teaming up with a whole gang of toy companies to produce these painted and un-painted mini figures called "Invisible Kaiju Pack". Figures include a Rumble Monsters clear purple Mini Damnedron, BUSTER CALL electric Beetlar, Gargamel crouching mini Zag, Charatics Mini Bander and Sunguts flower guy....

It looks like they will be included in this giant M1 egg with a print! Best collaboration of 2008 so far!! Sounds like this will be one of two Lucky Bags being released from Gargamel this year. This Invisible Kaiju Pack featuring all of the five companies above will include random rare or chase figures (meaning the ultra rad painted versions above). The other Lucky Bag will feature painted and un-painted Gargamel figures. Both will be available in full effect from Super7 will plenty to go around!! yay!!

Touma x Ultraman Mini Figures Preview!!

ultratouma_ultra_b 400x191

Touma is releasing a set of stylized mini figures of the megapopular Ultraman characters. I like them and since they are mini figures, they will fit right into my collection, but other die-hard Ultraman fans are not as positive. Now if Touma released these in clears, I think all will be forgiven!! You can pre-order the set from Ken's new One Up online store for 4,200 yen.

Secret Base "Full Color" Usugrow Rebel Ink Figure!!

usugrow full color 400x306

I'm not sure "Full Color" is the right term here, but we have the 3rd incarnation of pen and ink artist Usugrow's Rebel Ink figure by Secret Base. Clear grey vinyl painted with black and white accents, if you were lucky enough to get a hold of one, it would have cost you just over $100. Sorry, long sold out in Japan. I heard a rumor that since Usugrow's art is all black and white, all of his figures will also be limited to these colors. does that mean no clear blue Usugrow figures? that would be a bummer...

Beyond Hypothermia Custom Gargamel Mini Zag

IMG_1348 400x599

Had an extra blank Gargamel Mini Zag lying around so I thought I would give it the treatment. Originally I was going to match the colorway on the RxH Blue Ryusei Ninja, but when I tried it out, it just didn't look right. I just wasn't feeling the red and black for some reason. So I just went for more blue. I took the blue one more level...

Beyond Hypothermia is an awesome Hong Kong action flick featuring a bad-ass female assassin that gets caught up in a gang war. Worthwhile checking out.... What does this have to do with a mini zag? absolutely nothing. The zag looks frozen and so this movie title came to mind.

Another interesting sidenote is that I dig the way the eye came out. but it was really a result of an accident. While I was using a paint pen to color the eye red, I pushed on it too hard and the paint flooded out filling up the entire eye socket and spilling just a bit on both sides. I thought it looked cool, so I let it dry and then used a little gold frost to highlight the center.
