The Invisible Edition BACKPACK by Alex Pardee x Mighty Jaxx Drops Feb 25th


Since their October 2016 release of THE BACKPACK Collectible, Mighty Jaxx next delves into yet another incarnation of this Alex Pardee creation, with tinted-clear version known as the “Invisible Edition”! And they come with their own “coins” too? Which I think is “brilliant”, as I do love my toys to be “interactive” beyond a single piece of collectible, IMHO :)

Scheduled for a February 25th release on www.mightyjaxx.com, stay tuned for further updates on the 'Hidden Stash Of The Bogmen’! Meanwhile, stay connected to Instagrams @mightyjaxx and @alexpardee for updates!

STORY SO FAR: "Discovered by the best friends Back & Pack's during their very first treasure hunting trip after their fateful meeting in the land of Yux. These special coins is part of the legendary 'Hidden Stash Of The Bogmen', a famous treasure that is rumoured to grant the finders of the treasure the power of invisibility!

After picking up the special coins from the ‘Hidden Stash Of The Bogmen’ , PACK & BACK saw their limbs flicker in the light for a brief moment before realising that they were enchanted with an exceptionally strong disillusionment charm.

Although invisible, they were not penetrable. They still had to be careful not to walk into others or let their tired breaths give them away."
For Your Reference: The first “regular” edition of the 8.5" tall ”The Back Pack” collectible was limited to 200pcs, and priced at US$120 each.

The SINGING BRYOPHYTE by Moss Dolls on Kickstarter


Monika at MOSS DOLLS sends word of her Kickstarter for her first designer toy, the “Singing Bryophyte” - and that the project has since been 100% funded (*Congratulations!), and with 10 days still left of the campaign, they have since added stretch goals to unlock further goodies for all the new owners-to-be of handpainted Singing Bryophyte toys.
"Made by Cooper who are producing the edition of 100 in the UK kindly sent us the very first prototype ahead of schedule. I was able to paint him to showcase how the LE of 100 Bryophytes will look. Each Bryophyte will be airbrushed in various shades of mossy greens by myself." - shared Monika.
Find out how you can be a part of this (if you have not already) by check out the project on kickstarter.com.

Hot Toys is working on PUNISHER 1/6th figure from Netflix’s Daredevil


Hot Toys’s Jin Cheol Hong - better known as “J.C.Hong” seen working on a 1/6-scaled “Punisher” headsculpt based on the likeness of actor Jon Bernthal from the ‘Daredevil” television series on Netflix!

And while we’ve seen Daredevil in 1/6th, here’s hoping we’ll eventually get to see LUKE CAGE, JESSICA JONES and IRON FIST (Danny Rand) in similar scale too!

Heck, I personally would rather see The Defenders as 1/6th-scaled collectibles, than to be in an Avengers feature film LOL … but that’s just me :p

"Hug Hug Cat which is "made in Taiwan" has different meaning for me - from prototype to mold, each phase and quality was controlled by myself and hope that everyone can own this Taiwan vinyl satisfyingly~" - shared Shon Chen.

I am truly loving this aesthetic of HUG HUG CAT (which I’d love to call “抱抱猫” LOL) = a baby-styled version of Shon’s Cat Rider, wearing a riding helmet with horns on the head sticking forth, and the adorable body of a baby - complete with cute bums and chubby belly!

I would expect MORE versions/editions/colorways to come, and with SHON being a customization “fiend” too, I’d heartily recommend you stay connected via his Instagram @shonside!

KULT ISSUE #20: TOYS - Available Now!

WHAT-IS: "45 artists have pushed the world of toys into overdrive – individually interpreting and recreating playthings. This issue exposes the history of toys, what they are now, and how they might define the future."
"Kult Magazine" is a quarterly publication, with each issue’s contents focuses on a specific “theme”, and for the latest ISSUE #20, the theme is something dear to this blog: “TOYS”!

Featured here are some snaps of the inner pages, and as well a quick page-flip video (seen up top), for kind considerations :)



"Kult inspires play by celebrating the world of toys and addressing the various controversies they present. From rocking horses made with real horse hair to 3D printed toys, these toys have continuously made their mark in pop culture.

For anything significant that’s happened, someone’s built a toy based on it. The history of toys is almost a history of us.

With this in mind, artists were given facts about playthings which they interpreted and then recreated into artwork. The result is a visually provoking art book that exposes the history of toys, what they are now, and how they might define the future.

Over 80 percent of the 50 contributing artists have never been featured in Kult before and were scouted through social media, local art markets and word-of-mouth. With this issue, we invite you to partake in making the journey of toys."



This issue was released in tandem with the launch of the “Choking Hazard” exhibition at Kult Gallery. Currently available to purchase here for SG$8.00 (price excluding shipping / For international and/or express shipping, kindly e-mail orders@kult.com.sg)

The Return of Giant Robot zine as GIANT ROBOT MEDIA #robotawakens


Giant Robot zine will return as an digital publication, and as a new entity: “Giant Robot Media”. Digital Issue 00 is titled “THE ROBOT AWAKENS”, and you can sort yourselves out by subscribing to them on giantrobotmedia.com (Currently in Beta). No further news on the premiere date as yet.
PRESS: "The zine is back as a new entity: Giant Robot Media.

The mission of Giant Robot Media is to cultivate culture by informing, collaborating, and expanding our world. Our subject matter runs the spectrum. We intend to make Giant Robot Media continue the exploration of intersections of Asian, Asian American, and everything else.

It'll be an online platform. When you visit the Giant Robot Media site, you’ll find original videos, interviews, articles, and cool shit."
(#robotawakens)
"I remember discovering GR magazines at my local comicbook shop years back, as they were the only folks I knew who brought them into Singapore, and devoured then whenever any issues were available, both "current" and back issues (most were pre-ordered in the first place, but sometimes the shop brought in extra copies), until later I would find them at Tower Records, and eventually bigger chain bookstores, which by then I had weaned myself off needing them, as the agony of not having them, became too much to bear, I sh*t you not … that, and I stopped having regular income and I had to curb my magazine-hoarding habits across the board ~ *cue-violin* hahahaha

A personal sign how much I loved reading them? I would bring them to the john with me. I would bring them along when I go out too, and they were read from cover to cover, and not left gathering dust on a book shelf somewhere forgotten at home … I don't own a lot of them, but whatever I had, they've been read ragged at the page-edges, ever so gently. Hey, I take care of my mags, okay? LOL"

CYBOT AVENGERS by Buzzard Guts for Feb 24th Release!


“CYBOT AVENGERS” is the latest bootleg fan art resin toy from Buzzard Guts and DAMarx toys - featuring a Star Wars/Marvel mash-up that uses Kenners 1977 protocol droids as a base for popular Marvel characters! Utter cool, as I’d imagine Ultron has created his own versions of mechanoid-Avengers!

These resin figures stand 3.75" tall and are hand cast and hand painted by DAM and mounted on a sturdy 6"x9" cardback with illustrations by Ryan Winn (*one of the creators of Valiant comics). Each card features a homage to classic Marvel comic covers by Jack Kirby, Bob Layton and Todd McFarlane - which is an awesome touch, IMHO!



There are 4 figures in the set. The Cybot Avengers features C3-PO as Iron Man and the Captain, while RA-7(death star droid) mutates into Hulk and Spidey. (Star Wars fans might reference Cybot Galactica, the company responsible for manufacturing these protocol droid models.)

This 1st edition series is limited to 20 figures being 5 of each or 5 sets. Dropping exclusively at buzzardguts.storenvy.com on Friday February 24th at 7pm eastern standard. They are US$40 each, or US$150 for the set (*Save $10 when you buy the set) … can you bear to “tear” the team apart? :p

ABOUT: "A little bit about buzzard guts. We produce resin action figures in small run editions. Appropriating factory made production toy parts and assimilating various pop culture icons to create a fan homage or a strange multi-dimensional version of an alternate reality. Sometimes referred to as "bootlegs", these art toys are conceived, hand made and painted by DAM featuring collaborative illustrations by various artist including Neil Devlin of Last Boss Comics, who illustrated packaging art for the Riot Scum series which features various gender bender Star Wars characters in a punk band. The series had exclusive releases through Dke toys at DesignerCon, New York Comic Con and most recently at the Clutter Gallery Inaction Figure 5 exhibition.

Other past Buzzard Guts collaborators include Moctoys, Randy Walker, Klon Waldrip, Michael Shantz, Scott Stripling, and Reis O'Brien."

Note that the images shown here are of the prototype. ”When shipped, the final piece may differ for handmade painting.”

Steff Bomb Signs On To USAopoly's Project Raygun


Los Angeles-based artisan plush crafter Steff Bomb has announced that she had signed a “toy deal” with USAopoly - specifically with their newly launched “Project Raygun” division.
"This new partnership will take Steff’s creations out of art galleries and television series— like TLC’s Craft Wars— and put high end, soft prop plush collectibles into the hands of collectors, cosplayers, craft enthusiasts, and pop culture fans alike.

Steff will be working to bring the legendary Gjallarhorn rocket launcher—from Bungie’s Destiny—to market in late 2017, for all the loot-­‐obsessed Guardians (as the players of the game are known) out there.

Of course, it’s not all about the explosions. Project Raygun’s line of soft prop collectibles will include Steff’s designs for properties like Adventure Time, Game of Thrones, John Carpenter’s The Thing, and more.

If Valyrian Steel seems a bit harsh, collectors might consider a softer cut—Steff’s version of the Catspaw Blade from HBO’s Game of Thrones looks killer, but has plush filler. Cartoon Network fans will no doubt enjoy chilling out with an Adventure Time plush modeled after Marceline’s Bass. Or, if you want to heat things up, why not curl up next to a plush Flamethrower from John Carpenter’s The Thing?

Steff Bomb and Project Raygun are just getting started. The line will be available for purchase online at ProjectRaygun.com in Fall 2017."

A post shared by Steff⚡️Bomb (@steffbomb) on

"I've spent the last 8 months secretly developing my first toy line, which will all be officially licensed pop culture toys. I've already made the prototypes for some Adventure Time toys, John Carpenter's the Thing, Game of Thrones, Nintendo, and more. The prototypes were on display at a Toy Fair in NY this past weekend. I can't wait to show you everything. I've been working non-stop, way more than usual. I totally went hermit-crazy but it's all been so worth it. Minus the country falling apart around us, I am the happiest person in the world. This is my everything. This is it. I did it and I'm so proud of myself and I can't wait to make the best stuff I've ever made." (shared Steff Bomb on Facebook)

To help “celebrate” the announcement, here is a mini-documentary showcasing Steff Bomb, made by Merdocs! And you can check out coverage of Steff’s work on TOYSREVIL by CLICKING HERE!
