Marsham Toy Hour S2 E11 & E12

unnamedunnamed (1)

We've got another two episodes of Marsham Toy Hour to share with you! Last weeks episode was another collectors episode with special guest Katherine Park, who in combination with Theresa, put the "cute" counter meter through the roof. They discuss how Katherine got in the scene, as well as all she's done within the scene, such as being a part of Broke Piggy and collaborating with Andrew Bell on an Android figure.

 

This weeks episode of Marsham Toy Hour brings Nick Curtis of CoArt Magazine. Nick drops tons of knowledge on the toy scene. He discusses the origin of the Term "Urban Vinyl" and where the movement has lead us. He chats about CoArt and his honest reviews on toys. So much was discussed, that we hope they have a second round, since we feel they've only scratched the surface.

Brent Nolasco – Insecticide First Look

P1050952

Brent Nolasco—one of the hardest working artists in the art toy world—has shared the first pics of his upcoming Insecticide figure. The detailed winged-bug character is a “rebirth” of Brent’s previously released figure, The Eliminator. The second coming features a wicked new fly-like head, wings, and new pincerish feet.  The newest member of the Dark Descendents line will debut with a painted edition next week cast by Taskone.

With each new figure, we learn a bit more of the back story.  Described by Brent as a hope for the future amid the coming of Doomsday, Insecticide is apparently one of the good guys.  Don’t judge him by his name!

Tara McPherson just jumpstarted fan girl and boy’s hearts this morning with the a silhouette tease of her upcoming Wonder Woman project with Kidrobot!  We’re expecting something pretty amazing as Tara always delivers graceful yet strong female portrayals.   We can’t wait to see more of Tara’s rendition of the Amazonian warrior.

While there’s not too much more to say other than the obvious, YES!, it does appear that this one will be statue like with a base but that’s par for the course with the dynamic, one foot pose.  Finally, yes, its vinyl.
