Customizer extraordinaire and passionate collector LASH made a super limited run of these custom Gargamel figures in the most beautiful colorway...!! I would love to see more runs like this from LASH on RealxHead figures since we have an abundance of the flesh blanks!! Ya gotta love LASH's packaging as well. Very professional. Even better than many production releases. Thanks for the link on your header card LASH! cool....
Happy 5th Anniversary Popsoda!!! Looks like you have lots of yummy exclusive toys to celebrate!! Of course, we all love the painted Rangeas above, but sadly, only obtainable if you win the lottery for this figure.....

-TOYBOT STUDIOS CAMPUS EDITION POP SODA-
Super7 is proud to present the Toybot Studios Campus Edition Pop Soda!!
This pink and purple beauty is first official release by toy customizer and collector Kirkland Jue of Toybot Studios, in collaboration with Pop Soda of Japan, and released by Super7 of San Francisco.
Truly a momentous collaboration, the Toybot Studios Campus Edition Pop Soda figure was designed by Vinyl Superstar Katsura Mori of Real x Head for Pop Soda, with the colorway designed and lovingly hand painted by San Francisco local Kirkland Jue of Toybot Studios.
This syrupy drippy soda jerk is 6" tall, and cast in clear pink vinyl with blue, purple and green sprays. Don't miss your chance to pick up this amazing figure made by a collector for collectors!!
The Toybot Studios Campus Edition Pop Soda will be offered for sale at $70, and will be available at the Super7 Store, Saturday December 15th, at 11AM pacific.
wow, this is a dream come true! I gotta give a HUGE Thank You to Kaiju Taro, Brian and Josh from Super 7, Frank Kozik and of course the Popsoda Crew for making this happen!! Big inspiration from Paul Kaiju, LASH, Shapeshifta, Locomoco, Rhinomilk, Cometdebris, Motorbot, Redhanded, Lamoursupreme, Hiro and of course, Mori!!
The best part of this package is that Josh Herbolsheimer from Super 7 did the header card artwork. We thought it would super cool if we made the entire backside of the package his artwork so you can cut it off from the header card and frame on your wall! Josh's artwork will be approximately 5"x7" and suitable for framing in your toy room!
This Popsoda figure is called "Campus Edition" because his jacket represents our high school Varsity letterman's jacket at John Marshall High in Los Angeles. Ah, high school....good times....good times...!! Dedicated to the Class of '85 and '86...
This is the 2nd Cure Boogie Man to be released and I gotta say this figure is pretty rad. I think it was a Toy Tokyo exclusive, but for some reason that deal fell apart and it's now the "Overseas Limited Edition". Funny, cause the header card says "NYC Limited Edition". Anyways, when I first saw pictures of the figure, I was afraid it was like a 9" standard size figure which would be too large for my collection, but I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it's a 7" figure. It has a ton of detail and personality for a figure this size from the paint application to the clothing, mask and the little chains on it's arms and legs. Great figure to add to your collection...

I've always, always wanted a Secret Base Crank figure, but they were usually too expensive and too hard to obtain on the secondary market. So when the ultra-cool folks at Secret Base set aside a few especially for us overseas collectors, I was super happy to get the tip off from a Rad fellow board member on Skullbrain . Toy Karma is strong in this guy..... Unfortunately, there were only a few as many that emailed Secret Base got a "sold out" reply. You couldn't choose the color so i'm super lucky to get this beautiful and I mean stunning blue version. I love it. Thank You Secret Base, Thank You Crank and Thank You RM!!

You gotta love his colors and his unbelievable sculptures!! If you wanna check out more of his work, take a look at the pieces at the Toy Karma Show at Rotofugi a few months ago....

Here's a couple of BLObPUS figures you may or may not have missed this past weekend at Hobby Complex. The big hoopla is over this clear BLObPUS with a real insert (as opposed to a paper insert). I'm digging it and it must be added to the collection.... Think of the creative color combos this toy could bring out...I'll take this toy in another ten colorways please....
Less interesting is this new sculp Kaijin Docross...it's kinda cool, but for some reason that I cannot explain, i'm not feeling the Kaijin anymore.

I don't know shit about fashion, but I like to keep up with what the kiddies are wearing by checking out Hypebeast. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled upon these pics of an interesting collaboration between mastermind Japan and Bandai celebrating mastermind's 10th Anniversary. For those of you (like me) that don't know shit about mastermind Japan, you might be surprised at the hefty price tag for this Zaku figure at nearly $3,800.00 USD. Even with the dollar weak as shit, that's the price of a fucking small car! For those of you fuckers that DO know mastermind Japan, you might not be surprised since you pay between $400-$1,000 for one of their T-shirts with a skull and crossbones logo on it. Who the hell are you people??? The only thing that makes this situation somewhat palatable is that this Zaku is HUGE. It comes in at over 3.5' feet tall!! That's a lot of money, but then again, that's a lot of Zaku!!! I wouldn't mind this guy in my foyer so it can guard my Bentley! High rollers that wear $400 t-shirts to the gym order it at the Bandai Hobby Shop.
