The Loyals Subjects x Hasbro – Transformers Tees (9.25)
After some choice previews and teaser images, The Loyal Subjects is about to drop the first products from their Hasbro-licensed Transformers project – Series 1 of their Transformer Tees. The new collection features ten designs (across several colors) including eight character outline designs and two logo tees, created by Les Schettkoe. The character tees feature 4 Autobots ( Bumble Bee, Optimus Prime, Jazz and Grimlock) and 4 Decepticons (Megatron, Thundercracker, Soundwave, and Starscream). Based on Gen1 Transformers, these character designs appear to be previews of the upcoming Transformers Blindbox mini-figure series which is due in early December.

Andrew Bell -- Android S3 Pre-Orders
After a lengthy (and painful) wait, it looks like Andrew Bell’s Android S3 minis are about to find their ways to collectors’ shelves. While the boxes show 14 designs, there are apparently 15 designs in this series. Several retailers are now taking pre-orders with an estimated ship date of 9.26 including myplasticheart and rotofugi. The Blind boxes are 7.95 while the case has a suggested retail of ~ $127.
S3 features fourteen designs from Google, Andrew Bell, Gary Ham, Huck Gee, KaNO, MAD, KRONK, Kelly Denato, Scott Tolleson and Sket One. As you know, Andrew Bell has been gradually previewing the S3 designs – most recently showing MAD’s Cry-On Design and Huck Gee’s Professor Skully McRivethead. In addition, Gary Ham’s owl design was part of the SDCC preview release and Andrew Bell’s second design is shown above (just left of KaNO’ design in the top row). As you might hope for, MAD’s design features an integrated rattle for that tell-tale spraycan sound. Also, one collector (F@ndr0id) has shared photos of what appears to be a full-set on the KR forums – revealing both Scott Tolleson designs and the previously unshown Kronk design. With this newest ‘evidence’, we’ve come to the conclusion that S3 does indeed feature 15 designs rather than the 14 suggested on the official packaging. Android S3 looks great and should prove to be quite popular. Hit the jump for the spoiler images.
Crappy Cat’s Meme 6 Pack Sack! (09.24)
If you’re like me, you spend way too much time on Reddit, Tumblr, and 9gag looking at cat pictures and memes. Most notably would be the rage comic memes, which in just one storyboard, emotes all feelings I have in a number of similar situations.

The Six Pack Meme Tribute features FlunkMonkey Solo, Fuuug!, Loool!, Probz?, Jeah!, and Jeez!. These will be available only through CrappyCat.com and is an edition of 125 sets. The release will take place on Monday, September 24th at 2PM EST through Wednesday, September 26th at 2PM EST.

L’amour Supreme x myplasticheart – Baby Huey “Hell” Edition (09.22)
We jumped the gun a bit when we announced that myplasticheart was doing a Baby Huey release with L’amour Supreme for NYCC. This release will happen a bit earlier, as in 3 days from now early. Releasing this Saturday, September 22nd at 1PM EST via MPH is the Baby Huey “Hell” Edition. This blind bagged release is hand painted by none other than L’amour and is limited to 9 pieces, 2 of which are mixed parts. They also come with a 11” x 17” print and will retail $150 a set! I have a feeling that these may not make it online, as these will go fast in store!

kaNO kid Production Presents: Bodega Artist Series
It looks as though our good friend kaNO has got a little production thing going on with the return of his Bodega figure. This time he’s asked a few close buds to join in on the action, who we hope to see announced very soon. So far, all we know to be in this artist series is Toofly, as they spoke of it in the latest episode of Ya’ Heard! Show. Can we already guess that kaNO is one of the 5 artists? Who would you like to see do up a Bodega figure?
