Artist Turns Regular Dolls Into Mind-blowing Hyperrealistic Figures

You know is it with stock action figures and dolls. They hardly resembles the person they took after. I don’t want to question why manufacturers of these expensive collectibles can’t get the facial features right. But hey, that’s probably a good thing because it leaves a void for exceedingly talented repaint artist like Philippine-born, US-based Noel Cruz a chance to unleash his talents and thus doing justice to the celebrities who the action figures/dolls took the image. How else would you turn ugly Emma Watson doll from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast into like what she supposed to be right? The works of Noel Cruz need no advertisement. The results speak for themselves. Continue reading Artist Turns Regular Dolls Into Mind-blowing Hyperrealistic Figures

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

LEGO Is Bringing Back The Taj Mahal To Mark The Set’s 10th Anniversary

Forget about scouring eBay for a 2008 LEGO 10189 Taj Mahal which could cost you thousands of dollars because, if you really want one, LEGO is re-releasing the set. Designated 10256, the rejuvenated (or rebooted, if you will) iconic mausoleum of India will be available starting November 1st. The catch? Well, there isn’t one, really, unless you consider the inevitable inflation is a catch. You see, back in 2008, the 10189 commanded $299.99, but this 10th anniversary version is going to run you back at a painful $369.99. Man, that’s a good 70 backs over the original!

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!
