Jon Paul Kaiser + Google + Scott Tolleson for Android Series 05
And the Series 05 Android design images keep on rolling out! Now we get a much closer look at Jon Paul Kaiser’s Sturnbrau piece. He’s brought back one of his most memorable characters to join the Droid crew and its more than ARRRRRight, it’s ARRRRMazing! Ratio 1/16
Next up is Google’s very own design, the Chrome! Get it, Chrome.. Google.. Google Chrome… It makes sense right!? This will also compliment the Gold edition from Series 04 very well and is a must if you’re just hunting down the Google Designs. Ratio 1/16
Many moons ago Scott Tolleson did a custom run of blind boxed Android figures for SDCC, which sold out in a flash. If you weren’t able to snag up one of those, now is your chance with a variant of one of the customs. Presenting the Skeledroid for series 05! Ratio 1/16

Blitzway x Coartism –- Playboy Art Toy Series
South Korea continues its rapid rise as a growing market and exciting producer of art toys. The latest sign of this exciting trend is the new Playboy Collector’s Edition Art Toys from South Korean brands Blitzway and Coartism. The upcoming line features interpretations of the magazine’s—an international cultural force—iconic Bunny from Hands in Factory, twelveDot, Sticky Monster Lab, Eric So, Les Schettkoe and David Flores. Just the news of Playboy Art Toys is exciting, but what’s really impressive here is the strength of the different artistic takes
Some focus on the Bunny as a character onto itself including Les Schettkoe’s hip skater Bunny and Hands In Factory’s wild Bunny pimp. Others offer interpretations of the classic Playboy Bunny—Dave Flores’s refined bust with subtle texture, twelveDot’s sculpture-like vision and Sticky Monster Lab’s curvaceously adorable urban Bunny. And last but certainly not least, a few artists focus on the man behind it all—Mighty Jaxx’s urban Hef with velvet jacket and Eric So’s threesome featuring a dapper Hef bunny (with Eric So style glasses) and two Bunnies.
No word yet on when these will drop, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled

Mondo – The Iron Giant Pre-Order (01.22)
Alright folks! The moment has finally come! Mondo has finally announced the pre-order for the long awaited Iron Giant figure, which we last saw at SDCC. The pre-order will take place on Thursday, January 22nd and we are guessing the time of the drop may release around 9AM PST HERE, since that’s around the time most of their releases occur.
More about this amazingly detailed piece of work?
Well, Bigshot Toyworks had a hand at this piece, so you know it’s good! The Iron Giant features 30 points of articulation and includes a bunch of accessories! You’ll receive two interchangeable heads with red light-up eyes, magnetic “S” that can be taken from the seafood and sign added to his chest, switch-out “War Arm”, Hogarth mini-figure, and a girder. Not only that, but the figure also says some of your favorite Iron Giant quotes from the movie. All for the price of how much you may ask? The steep price of $300 for all of the above or $315 for the limited edition Iron Giant that comes with the “Hand Under Foot” accessory. You may be thinking that this is an expensive and we agree, but this figure stand 16” tall and is super detailed, articulated, and comes with a bunch of accessories. Maybe they will do a price drop like they did with Mike Mitchell’s Lil’ Mikey figure.
All’s I know is that I will personally be getting one of these bad boys! The figure is expected to ship in Q3 of this year. More photos available after the jump.
