    Munky King has released Yoskay Yamamoto’s Screaming for the Sunrise vinyl in a new DIY edition (6”, $50). We’ve always enjoyed Screaming for the Sunrise and felt that it never quite got its due. Here’s hoping talented customizers reintroduce folks to the figure. That said, the sculpt seems like a...

    Not far behind Slug, we have pictures of the Strafe two pack from the Toys R Us exclusive Evolution Two Pack series. As immediately predicted following Slug's reveal, Strafe comes with the pterosaur Mini-Con mold in G1 Dinobot colors. This seems to indicate that the Energon Swoop mold may go unused, leaving Evolutions Grimlock with no one to unadvisedly combine with. See the pictures below!

    CUSTOM WOLVERINE CELSIUS FIGURES FROM ROTOBOX The gang over at Rotobox does what they do best in the way of yet another fantastic set of custom figures.

    REVIEW: ORIGINAL SIN #0 Marvel’s big summer crossover event is about to kick off in the form of Original Sin, a murder mystery in which one of Marvel’s most ominous characters gets assassinated - The Watcher. The killer even goes as far as stealing his eyeballs and raiding his home on the moon of all kinds of deadly weapons and celestial doohickeys. But this is a zero issue, so it’s still just laying the groundwork for all the exciting murdery stuff to come when issue #1 drops on May 7th. Consider this an appetizer to the main course.

The set drops May 1st with each figure being sold for $3.99 (most likely blind-packaged), just in time for the May 4th episode “Brick Like Me” which sees Springfield and all its residents turned into Lego bricks.

The end of the trailer says it was filmed on location in the rainforest of Peru and the native tribe featured in the movie has never been filmed before. Also, Green Inferno sounds like a pretty decent name for a strain of weed, just saying. Check it out: (via I Watch Stuff)

  • Hot Toys' Amazing Spider-Man 2 Rhino crashes the party

    Scarecroodle
    24 Apr 2014 | 6:00 pm
    Hot toys has sent over a teaser image for its upcoming The Amazing Spider-Man 2 Rhino which, as Spidey fans are aware, is a giant mechanical suit in the film (kind of like the Ultimate Rhino except for the fact that he doesn't look like the classic Rhino). The photo shows a glorious shot of the Rhino's backside and, well, not much else. While I'm going on the record as being disappointed by ASM2's interpretation of the Rhino, it's definitely a lot better than having Paul Giamatti in a spandex rhino outfit which is an image you'd never be able to get out of your head.

    Mecha Musume has been a genre for quite a while. From Busou Shinki to later series like Strike Witches and Infinite Stratos, turning women into weapons of war is nothing new. Turning them into ships of World War II though is completely new, thanks in large part to the online game, Kantai Collection. Now the game's popularity is spawning a ton of media, including of course figures. Bandai is going all out by christening their first entry of the series into their Armored Girls Project line, the Yamato. While there's Nendoroids, bath toys, and figma under planning, this looks to be the most…

    Lulemee of deviantART has done some of the most wonderful custom doll work I've seen in a while. I'm not a huge doll person, save Monster High and MLP: Equestria Girls for the most part these days, but I can definitely say I've noticed the lack of quality in a lot of the recent Disney dolls that they've put out in major chain stores. Clearly lulemee noticed as well, and has done something about it. A lot of her creations have before and after pictures you can see in the gallery. Sometimes she created completely different characters out of the dolls! She does accept commissions from time to…

    24 Apr 2014 | 12:30 pm
    This month's scans brought news of the new Revoltech line, Revol Mini. The inaugural figures of the line are none other than Solid Snake and Kinnikuman. It's not the announcement that many were expecting, but nevertheless, here they are fresh from the pages. Both of these two are falling under the subset of Revol Mini, Micro Yamaguchi. If they feel the need to do this, odds are the Mini line will be extended to the Sci-Fi lines in the near future. Back to Snake though, he's the Snake figure you wanted back in 1998, except before you knew about what figures could be like now. He's got a nice…

In fact, she already has 3 different (small) treasure chests, and would happily gather several more to hold her collections of crystals, jewels, and rocks. So I figured, it was time to bring some gems into our paintings too. Especially when it’s this easy! This project was fun for both of us.

    The most troubling quote in today’s NYT’s article, “Today’s Girls Love Pink Bows as Playthings, but These Shoot” is “toys that stimulate aggression are healthy for children.” To suggest that literal props like weapons are something to be valued (regardless of what color they are) puts the conversation about the value of play experiences back a few decades.  Yes, kids have aggression and need outlets for expressing it, but making it part of their play diet with plastic weapons is not beneficial.  Most child development experts would suggest art…

    What yoyo is that? Add a comment to this video on YouTube. Learn how to do the Zipper yoyo trick, one of the easier 1a yoyo string tricks. Video transcript This trick is called the Zipper, and it looks like this. You can see, when you watch the Zipper, that the motion seems to repeat a couple of times. That is because this trick is a repeater, which means that once you are through the trick you are right back where you started and then you can just continue to do it over and over again. This trick is a nice trick to learn once you have gotten used to the Front-Mount, because you will be doing…

Video transcript This trick is called Ladder Escape, and it looks like this. I did an extra Jump Rope at the end. That is not really part of the trick, but it seems to help it finish nicely. When you start this trick, what you are going to do, is you are going to start by throwing the yoyo around your thumb, almost like you are going into a One and a Half Mount. Instead of going into your One and a Half Mount, what you are to do is push the string that is on your thumb…

To start this trick, you are going to start with a One-and-a-Half mount, except you are going to hit the top string and let the yoyo fall back down into the bottom string. After you do that, you are going to throw the yoyo back up into the top string and into your actual One-and-a-Half mount. From here you are going to swing the yoyo all the way over, just like you would in Buddha’s Revenge. After you do that, you are going to insert…

    Hello! We are Heetal and Kanan, co-founders of Beetle and Bottle. We first got to know each other many moons ago in our pre-mommy days. We spent many days (and quite a few late nights) working as a creative and client servicing team in an advertising agency. Through the infinite deadlines of our advertising lives, our mutual respect and admiration for each other’s work grew.

    The Itch Factor! I think most women in their mid to late 20’s (like myself); can safely say that their birthday parties from infancy to toddlerhood, were not always pleasant experiences. The cake was great, numerous presents made the day, and getting together with family and friends was the best part – but then there was an itch! All those beautiful memories for me were close to being destroyed (I’m being dramatic, but these were my thoughts as a child), by the itchy, scratchy, poky, hot, clammy and extremely uncomfortable dress I was wearing. What’s worse is that my birthday is in…

    Stories Of Travel And Tailors The 'boho-chic' design quotient has been an integral part of my personality. Growing up in India, I've always had a torrid love affair with fabric,especially printed cottons. Spoilt for choice with the many prints, patterns, textures and colours, I spent a lot of my teenage years courting/ cheating on many tailors - debating, arguing, pestering my way through, to sew my sketches into wearable pieces of clothing. Much pleasure was derived back then in donning unique, one-of-a-kind pieces designed by the self, than picking run-of-the-mill 'branded' standard attire…

But one day, the same happened to me. I had a great IT job and was very happy doing what I was doing. When I had a baby, I decided to quit my job. I had no idea what was in store. Initial years of staying at home were not easy. I felt I had never ending postpartum melancholy. Luckily, as my kid grew older, I started enjoying doing things with him. From a Science background, it was natural for me to carry out…
