Le Merde x Cometdebris !!!

2530437817_cba3d44405_b 400x533

Following up on the smash success of the recent Le Merde show at Super 7, Comet Debris just released a very limited set of custom Le Merde figures today. Many a broken heart is in the works as demand will far outstrip supply of these amazing figures.

Introducing Super 7 Mummy Boy!!

2509393797_1ecec93dc0_o 400x533

The latest figure from Super7 and also the new mascot, Mummy Boy!! I like the colorway. Painted GID. The nub with the bone sticking out is an awesome detail. The face itself, while true to all of Super 7's character features, seems almost too cute. Maybe a bit more edge? Skulls are always good....

More than likely, part of the Super 7 7th Anniversary Lucky Bag extravaganza on June 7th...

Huck Gee "Puto" Bootleg!!!

IMG_3200 400x599

Got this Huck Gee "Puto" Bootleg in a trade recently. This thing is pretty crazy when you have it in hand. It's really heavy!! I think it's made out of some kind of nutty resin, but it almost feels like solid granite! I dig the sculp and the detail on the wings are amazing. It's pretty big too. I believe around 10 inches or so...

Fewture EX-Gokin Boss Borot!!!

IMG_3177 400x599

Finally lugged these guys out of their boxes to take some shots. Love 'em. Chunky, heavy, die-cast with a retro, junkyard vibe going on. Designed and sculpted by the late, great Taku "Professor Robo" Sato, this figure is truly a work of art. I liked it so much, I had to get this toy in both colorways. As you can see, the detail is beyond amazing. Look at the three pilots!! check out the tiny fire extinguisher!!??

Touma Custom TuDo Show at Fewmany!!!

33a_500 400x407

Kicking off a new sculp that will go production in July, Touma custom painted 50 of his new TuDo figures each with different horns and noses. The bad news is that I missed out on every single one I was willing to shell out $200 for. The good news is that I saved $200 I didn't really have to spend. Pictures courtesy of Fewmany Blog.

New BLObPUS Andagon GEM version!!!

andagonp1if7 400x400

BLObPUS released pics of a new head and arm sculp based on the Diablo body. Looks like one of the deep sea Angler fish with the luminescent light bulb. I dig the colorway of course. I would like to see the sculp in person.

Here it is in the clear amber colorway...

A bit late, but I think this hot pink Diablo is the best colorway yet...

Kustom Kaiju from Dead Presidents!!!

Picture305 400x520

Every once in a while, we get western toy customizers who venture over to the dark side and wanna lend their skills to customizing Japanese vinyl. Some can make the transition, some cannot. In this particular case, we have a auto and motorcycle custom painter and pin striper who paints western platform toys and is now trying his hand with Japanese vinyl. Some of the guys like it, some do not. I personally think it kicks ass. Cronic is a skilled artist and his pin-striped Deathras are some of the most highly coveted pieces of vinyl on earth. Although Cronic is pin striping his own toys and that in itself makes them extremely valuable, he is mimicking pin stripers like Dead Presidents at the end of the day. So when a automotive pin-striper like Dead Presidents give a Deathra a spin, the results are interesting and amazing IMHO...
