Cure "King" Oni Boogieman!!!!

kingboogieman 400x534

Could this be the best Boogieman ever? I dunno, but i'm digging this guy a lot. Aside from the day glo orange with the LED inside, he's got chains and a CAPE! How cool is that. Produced by Cure Toys in collaboration with Secret Base, this guy is sure to get a ton of attention at Superfestival on Sunday when he's released.

Original Fake Rules for buying Kaws Stormtrooper on Saturday!!

15q5jyc 400x332

Trying to make if difficult for flippers and try to ensure real fans get the Kaws Stormtrooper, rules were released as to how the lottery for a specific date and time for entrance into the store were released. Assuming you get a lottery ticket and you're still around for the date and time you are allowed entrance to the store, there is no guarantee there will be any left for you to purchase. Sounds crazy, but everyone is gonna be crazy together waiting in line to get a lottery ticket. I personally like it. Since I managed to get the Vader through a rad Skullbrainer, i'm compelled to get this guy as well.

New Gargamel Drops September 27th!!!

f_tokojim_76da4da 400x532

Just as were rolling into Thrashout this Saturday, Gargamel is conveniently releasing their latest batch of goods including the first Super7 Zombie set. While i'm relieved it's not orange and black, the silver and red is an interesting change of pace. Looks appropriately like they are henchmen in a bad Sci-Fi movie or something. The first zombie called Ooze Bat is designed by Chanmen. Kiyoka designed the mummy zombie next one down. Koji designed the Tokoji Zombie as well as the nice blue Tokoji Seijin above. Thanks for the corrections Koji!!

Spray, Splattered, Brushed, Rubbed and Ruined Custom Show by LASH at Super 7 October 11th

2871525634_e1473e735e_o 400x285

I love the title to LASH's first ever solo show at Super7 on October 11th. If anything LASH has paid his dues and this solo show finally acknowledges his superb talents. The show's title reflects the somewhat anti-custom sentiment on Skullbrain, but that hasn't stopped LASH from turning out amazing custom after amazing custom. As I look around my shelves, I have more than a few LASH customs and plan to acquire more at this show. Congratulations LASH. Well Deserved. Fuck the haters.

Fellow 'Brainer Clone666 took these absolutely amazing shots of the Skullrex set I recently painted. I have to admit it's very fulfilling seeing such wonderful pictures of toys I painted. Thank you Clone666...

Everytime I look at these pics, I hear the theme song for "X-Files".

Dead Presidents Custom Itokin Park Himalan!!

2869363286_aa55d91b85_b 400x320

It appears more Japanese designers think Matt Walker aka Dead Presidents custom stylings go well on their toys. Case and point, Itokin Park commissioned Matt to paint three Himalans for his private collection. Pretty sweet if you ask me. Some of Matt's best work here.

Kaws Stormtrooper Sneak Peek!!!

2873624019_9ed01eb0d9_o 400x359

Looks like Kaws is following up on his Vader from last year with the predictable Stormtrooper. Original picture from hkanytime and masterfully re-done in Photoshop by Andy over at ToysREvil. I've got the Vader and I like it. Will definitely be looking to pair him up with a Stormtrooper. Love to go big with two, but that would be asking too much...Original pic below.

New Marusan Clear Tinsel Grand King!!!

13505 400x400

Super7 has the new Marusan Grand King up for Pre-Order right now. I like it a lot, but sort of wish it had a bit more color to it. I dug up these pics of the clear red version I have and was contemplating trading. Luckily the Tradee didn't want it. Looking at these pics, not sure what I was thinking trading him...Mechanized giant monsters are cool.
