SPC X BE@RBRICK @ Art Toy Culture 2016

King POKKA & the PAKKA’s Wood Toys Release from Pepe Hiller (on May 4th)

A photo posted by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on

Schedules for an online release on Wednesday, May 4th 2016 | 10pm CEST (4pm EST) via are King POKKA & the PAKKA’s by Pepe Hiller, featuring a limited edition of 1 large and 8 small figures!

Scroll down for pics and words from Pepe himself (gotta LOVE the last pic tho!)

""The tribe of the PAKKA's is a mysterious one, there are rumours that already a small group of them can hunt down a huge buffalo by themselves. They usually live in small caves in the mountainous wilderness and hunt in the plains. Their King POKKA needs to lead them heavy-handed while learning them how to behave and to camouflage in these lands. This seems especially important as otherwise they would not stop to brawl and scuffle all day long. Well and as we all know, it’s almost impossible to hunt buffalos while making too much noise!”

The 6 inch PAKKA's are crafted out of finest smoked oak wood. For hunting each one holds a beech spear with a shiny brass spearhead fixed with a natural leather ribbon. The arms are articulated and each PAKKA has a small brass tooth. The eyes are made out of galvanised steel. "
"The huge King POKKA is 12 inch tall & weighs a hefty 5 pounds!! He features an additional row of maple teeth, one massive brass eyetooth and his horns are decorated by multiple solid brass jewellery. These figures have a natural semi gloss bees wax finish. Each piece is signed and numbered by the artist (iron branded/embossed)."

TOYSREVIL @ #StarWarsDaySG 2016

A photo posted by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on

Walking out of the air-conditioned comforts of Kallang Wave Mall (first time visit for myself too) into the outdoor sheltered OCBC Square where the 2016 Edition of Star Wars Day SG was held - I was struck by a 'notion'; that if the red cloth skirting of the tables had been "black", or if there were multiple dark colored crates around, it would be like a scene from "Rogue One" - in the aircraft hangar, with the huge covering canopy that which was over OCBC Square… well, at least in my imaginations, anyways… :p

May 1st Sunday was the second day of the Labor Day weekend when the #May4th celebrations were held, in spirit, of course (May the 4th would be in the middle of the week on a Wednesday, innit? :p), in in typical SG-spirit, we geek-on in advance! (Then maybe geek-on online on Wed too = double the geekery, init? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAA

Coming in after attending a wedding, I was not togged out in my Star Wars geek-wear, but nevertheless bumped into some friends - which is always a thrill to meet fellow-geeks, I will not lie - and took some snaps, since uploaded HERE on Facebook, AND a coupla video clips to share!

Seen at #starwarsdaysg #maythe4thsg (part 2/2) #sarwarsday #maythe4th

A video posted by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on

On show were a variety of fan-related geekery, from cosplay (a staple of any geek event here in Asia) to lightsaber performances and merchandize, to framed comicbook artwork and toy-photography, and of course "TOYS" - one of the larger influences on folks here, as essentially one if able to partake in the Star Wars Universe, with even a single purchase, and that's all right with me!

From vintage figures to customized awesomeness, feel free to click thru the links below to further features on my dedicated #starwarsallday-blog, showcasing the works of Wetworks, Boyan Customs and PsyfoolRulez Customz!

Star Wars Day this year was such a "family affair" - at least from the folks I'd had the chance to meet. From recognizing "red lightsabers" to be by the evil "Sith", to kids literally trotting about with a lightsaber in hand, ever ready for a photo-op, was such a warm fuzzy feeling to behold.

The Padawans will soon grow to be full Jedis, while we endure as the remnants of the Old Republic … Feels kinda "sad", and exhilarating at the same time!

Kudos to the organizers for keeping The Force alive, and May The Force Be With You All!
