download

Now this one makes us smile.  Jeromeski (Jerome Lu and Scott Wilkowski) have teamed up once again on the SDCC Exclusive Ninja Please double-cast resin figures (2.25").  Starting with an original Ninja Monkey sculpt by Macsorro, Wilkowski has worked his figure-within-a-figure wizardry to bring these to undead life. 

Apparently available in four colorways, Ninja Please will be available at booth 2547 from Preview Night (Wednesday, 7.17) on for $80 each.

Unruly Industries has revealed the upcoming Ghetto Blaster art toy from kaNO.  More than any of his toys to date, Ghetto Blaster captures the style of the artist's paintings.  From this first preview photo, it's an excellent translation of his art and style.

Greg 'Craola' Simkins x Unruly Industries — Starry Knights + Stabby

1125x682_previewbanner_700110_MagiToy-noborder

Unruly Industries has made a series of new art toy announcements including three upcoming releases with Greg 'Craola' Simkins.  The Starry Knight series features two mystical characters -- Magi and Maret. While they bear a close resemblance to one another, Magi resembles a rabbit, while Maret appears to be a centaur (finned?). These have the feel of stout, mystical guardians. 

In addition to the Starry Knights, Unruly is previewing the brand-new Stabby figure.  This one features an animated, stylized version of the character, apart from the recent 3DRetro figure.  No word yet, but given the timing of these announcements, we're hopeful they will be on display at Sideshow's SDCC booth [#1929]
