DAMTOYS 1/6 Scale Figure: 2017 Sidney Maurer Homage Artwork of Steve Jobs

Despite what some naysayers may say, Steve Jobs was without doubt a legend of our time. He was a visionary who was revered by many, even by some of his competitions. I am not going lie, I was one of the ‘many’. I don’t look up to his personality; I don’t know him personally and therefore I can’t comment in that area. However, one thing I am sure most people can agree on is, he was a dreamer who made dreams come true. And for that, he deserved our respect. And for those idolizes him, Taiwanese toy maker, DAMTOYS, have just the collectible for you: DAMTOYS Legendary Inventor 1/6 Scale Figure: 2017 Sidney Maurer Homage Artwork of Steve Jobs.

You Really Need To See This New Breed Of Mechanical Toy That Walks

If you are fascinated by all-thing Steampunk, I am very, very sure you will be intrigued by the Schnauzer Armored Walker Walking Tank Scale Model. Coming from Singapore-based Michael Sng’s Machination Studio, this 21 cm (8 ¼) mechanized “Dieselpunk” walking tank scale model is part of the world of Codename Colossus and the first Colossus hailed from the fictional Imperial German faction in a retro-sci-fi world where air power never seem to have existed. Intriguing. The fact that it is a tank that walks instead on rolling on conventional tracks kind of make it feels very Steampunk-ish, except the Schnauzer Armored Walker ain’t no steam-powered.

Kill Kat Vinyl Figure Is Probably The Most Evil Kit Kat Of All

Evil exists in many forms. Some are obvious, but some like junk food are not immediately apparent. The Kill Kat Vinyl Figure you see here makes it obvious. If the name Kill Kat is not being apparent enough, then the six inches tall conjoined candy evil twin faces should. Oh, those are too cute? What about the in-your-face pentagram printed on the Kit Kat-like wrapper? Is that obvious enough? No? What about its expiry date of 6/6/6, or perhaps 666 calories per serving it has, and the fact that is the number of the beast? Still no? Seriously, what are you???

Star Wars The Black Series Rey’s Speeder and Figure Is Now 30% Less On Amazon

Gone were the days where “toy-grade” action figures are basically shitty quality pieces that kids can trash them around however they like. With the Star Wars Black Series, “toy-grade” action figures are now on par with collectibles that cost hundreds of dollars. But of course, the Black Series is marketed at a tad higher price point. Despite so, they are still a lot more affordable compared to those “collectors-grade” items turned out by specialists like Hot Toys. It is now even more affordable, or at it is in the case of the Star Wars The Black Series Rey’s Speeder (Jakku) and Figure, because Amazon is taking over 30% of it. The Star Wars The Black Series Rey’s Speeder (Jakku) and Figure previously cost $59.99, but now, for an unknown period of time, it cost just $40.93.

Oh, Look. Grown-up Version Of Pinocchio Has A Morning Wood!

Tired with all the standard issue collectible figures already? Yeah, me too. If you are into collectible figures, here’s one non-standard, tongue-in-cheek of Pinocchio, entitled A Wood Awakening, for you to consider. Designed by French graphic designer Julien Gallet, AKA Juce Gace, this Pinocchio here is an grown-up take of the iconic fairy tale character, but with one key, manly difference. He has no problem with nose that extends uncontrollably when he lies, btw. Grown ups lie all the time, anyways. He does, however, share the same desire as the fairy tale wooden puppet boy and that is to become human. But to this grown-up version, what defines him as one living, breathing person is when he awake one day to find himself having the morning wood, like every single male does. Continue reading Oh, Look. Grown-up Version Of Pinocchio Has A Morning Wood!
