TOYSREVIL: What did you had in mind when you were curating “All That Remains”? What would you describe the “theme”, or rather your theme’s need/requirements be?
LANA CROOKS: "When I first thought of doing this exhibit I was mainly thinking about sculptors that either were already working with real bones or made pieces that looked like bone. As I was organizing who I would invite I started thinking about other artists that explore skeletal imagery in their works. So when I invited the artists I told them the exhibit's name and that I was looking for work based on skeletal, anatomical, specimen, and "remains", that they could translate the title however they saw fit."

TOYSREVIL: The array of genres represented was interesting for me - from sculptures hard and soft, to paper sculpts … How did the choices for artists come about? Any particular traits or styles you were looking for?
LANA CROOKS: "A lot of the artists I have either worked with before or have been a fan of their work for some time. I picked people based on the aesthetics of their works, not everyone sole works within the theme but I could see all the pieces working well together. I was looking for people who I knew could really take the concept and run with it. I did also find a few new artists as I was looking for a variety of genres and mediums to be represented. "

TOYSREVIL: This is not the first show you have curated, but compared to your past shows, what might make this “different”, or more unique than the others?
LANA CROOKS: "I have curated a lot of shows over the past years. I was a co-owner / partner of OhNo!Doom Gallery for 4 years so we did a lot of events (A lot of group shows too). I have also helped curate shows at Clutter Gallery like Stitched, Curious Beasts, Adventure Awaits, Tenebrous and Gift Wrapped to name a few. The thing that makes this show different is I think it is just more conceptual than past exhibitions. Normally for a group show I feel like you pick artists work you know will just flow together and ask for a more general theme. For All That Remains I was also picking artists I knew would put more narrative in the work given a more narrow concept."

TOYSREVIL: Do you have a favourite piece(s) from the show? And WHY?
LANA CROOKS: "I love so much of the work in the show, it was almost torture to not be able to pick up a piece from each artist. One of my favorite pieces is Virginie Ropars's The Bride, It is so eery but delicately beautiful. Her work is really quite amazing. I also love Jessica Dalva's Finding a new Way home for the exact same reason. Her sculpts and tiny costuming are lovely. Darla Jackson did some amazingly detailed birds for this show which hang on the wall or can lay down. I had never seen her work in person so it was great to be able to see how lifelike her work really is. Christina Mrozik also did a pair of stunning bird drawings that I spent some time staring at... basically I could tell you at least one piece from each person that I fell in love with."

TOYSREVIL: What was your favourite piece of yours for the show, and WHY?
LANA CROOKS: "I had done the piece Infinity right after deciding on the exhibition. It was swimming in my head for a while to make a large scale spine in this way. It took quite a bit of time to place all the fabric and it turned out just as I had wanted it to."

TOYSREVIL: Why should folks go see “All That Remains”?
LANA CROOKS: "There are a lot of pieces with tiny details that really need to be looked at up close. All the pieces are quite amazing but they look fantastic together as well. I had hung the show like I would hang pieces in my own collection. "

Hand sculpted, hand cast, hand painted, both Amanda and Michelle Valigura have been as prolific in this scene, as they have been induing it with original concept creations, proving the “indie scene” does not need to be “all about the non-licensed”, IMO.

Generation One Optimus Prime and Megatron Transformers by ThreeA Toys @ #TFCON2016

ThreeA Toys at TFCon over the weekend saw the display debut of GENERATION ONE / G1 MEGATON!
cheduled for a 2017 debut,check out more snaps of the unpainted prototype on my Transformers-dedicated #trandformersrollout-blog, especially his weapons! As well on show was their G1 OPTIMUS PRIME (previously featured), and thanks to Josh Coldiron’s coverage (on his Instagram @noritoy), we also get to see the chest cavity opened up!

With ThreeA’s speciality in hyper-details and articulated mecha-makes, their Generation-Ones thus far looks pretty epic, with robot forms “true” to the eye, and whose cartoon folks of my generation grew up with! Kudos, 3A!

Custom 1/6 BATMAN for Hot Toys’ Batman 100% ("Batman Collartible Expo”)


Custom 1/6th-scale BATMAN figures for the Batman 100% Exhibition is fully revealed (Since my previous feature), and shared here today for your online gawking pleasures! Folks in Tokyo, Japan can head-up to the Roppongi Izumi Garden Gallery, before the exhibit ends October 25th.

I am personally rooting for KNIGHTFALL to be made into a production figure from Hot Toys, thanks!




From “new” toy brand “Overtoys” comes an upcoming “JOKER” in 1/6th-scale, featuring the likeness of the late Heath Ledger as the infamous nemesis of the Batman, as seen in Chris Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” (AKA “Batman 2”).

Featuring Production Design by “Viper”, this incarnation of the Joker seems to feature rooted hair, and a different face-sculpt, seen in earlier releases from Hot Toys - most notably the DX JOKER from 2009.

I have zero product and availability info further than the images posted here, so do check in with your fav retailer(s) who bring in non-licensed products (*cough*).

Far be it I may seem to be promoting a (possible) “non-licensed” product, but I am intrigued that folks would want to continue with older characters (the “$$$”, of course :p) but still endeavour to produce a good lucking product. You decide :)
