Frazetta x Kozik x Kidrobot To Debut at New York Toy Fair 2016


The Legacy of famed fantasy artist Frank Frazetta lives on with this DEATH DEALER LABBIT from Kidrobot! Yep, you read it right the first time! Revealed on @frankkozik IG are two designs destined to debut in public at the coming weekend's New York Toy Fair!

The image above is a toy-adaptation of the by-now-iconic art of Frank Frazetta, with the character sat atop a labbit stead … while there is what looks to be "Conan The Barbarian", complete with Dunny "slave girl" (?) … The "Cimmerian" has turned "Labbit" for the new generation!

Check out the OG paintings featured at bottom of his post (More Frazetta art via www.Frazettagirls.com)


And in case you were wondering; "No", they are NOT custom one-offs, but will be "production pieces" to be had! Developed and sculpted by Bigshot Toyworks, Klim Kozinevich added; "We had the honor of developing this super cool #deathdealer #labbit for our friends @kidrobot @frankkozik and @frazettagirls this project was a blast and a real treat since this painting along with #ironmaiden #eddie were the main culprits to why I am doing what I am doing now."

How To Make Your Star Wars or ReAction Figures "Breakdance"

This is how you make Star Wars figures breakdance. For more: http://wrd.cm/1SWcuFM

Posted by WIRED on Tuesday, February 2, 2016

Eric Steuer at wired.com teaches folks how to make their Star Wars figures "breakdance" … and seems you could do that with Super7's ReAction figures too! (see video clip below) … so maybe you could still resist breaking into that vintage blister-carded packaging yet? Heh.

Pop! Anime: One Piece from Funko (Coming in April)

FUNKO PRESS: "Sail the seas of the One Piece universe with our Pop! figures! Luffy has aspirations to become the next Pirate King! But he won’t get far without his blue-nosed reindeer, Chopper! Trafalgar Law, best known as “The Surgeon of Death,” and Luffy’s older brother, Portgas D. Ace, are also on-deck! Coming in April!"
Never did caught unto the One-Piece anime tho … another one of "those" super-long-form series like "Naruto", "Bleach" et al that I tend to avoid, as they might prove the "geek-death" of my short attention span LOL

Arseface by Beau Greener of Credenda Studio for #InactionFigures4


Beau Greener sends words and snaps of his entry into the Inaction Figures 4 show @ Clutter Gallery (163 Main Street, Beacon, NY 12508), opening Feb 13th (exhibiting thru to March 4th, 2016), featuring a custom "Arseface", based on the "Preacher" comicbook character! (FYI: "Preacher" is being made live-action for television soon too!)

PRESS: "Based off of the anti-hero Arseface from the popular PREACHER comic series by Garth Ennis and Steve Dillon and soon to be a television series on AMC later this year, Arseface is the newest figure to be released from Credenda Studios. Once a lazy and unmotivated teenager who idolized Kurt Cobain. But upon hearing about the suicide of Cobain, he decided to follow in Cobain's footsteps and attempted suicide. Only it didn't work. All it did was give him the name of Arseface.

Cast, painted, and illustrated by Beau Greener of Credenda Studio and a digital head sculpt by Tyler Ham, these are very limited and a must have for every Preacher fan!"

Moahhh moahhh! My name is Clomp

Posted by JPX on Tuesday, February 9, 2016
"Moahh moahh!!! Thump! Clonk! Kwaii tramples over the grassy plains and the cabbage fields looking for a home. Up there on the mountain? Down there by the stream? He turns over every stone and rounds every corner, even though he knows this land does not want him. But what does he feel on his horns? One bird? Now two? Kwaii sits and rests. He hasn’t been this happy in a long time because instead of finding a home Kwaii has become one."

#SuperBowl 2016 TV Spots #SB50


And while it was the first day the Chinese Lunar New Year here in Singapore, the annual Super Bowl raged-on in the United States, which saw a series of feature films being represent by their TV Spots! Featured here in this single blogpost are a select few - scroll down to view them ("again", if you already have, all good!), and ENJOY!


Singapore's MBS / Marina Bay Sands and the ECP gets devastated in the latest Independence Day: Resurgence spot (from approx 0:23 seconds mark-in), and as well there's a new poster too! (We Singaporeans always gets kinda air-fist-punchy when we get represented on celluloid tho, even if it meant "disasters" ~ LOL)




Classic villain "Krang" is teased here in the latest spot for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows - which already included "Bebop and Rocksteady", "Casey Jones" and a new "Shredder" already! Totally bang-for-the-retro-buck on characters in this installment, methinks!


Fly to Metropolis & Gotham with Turkish Airlines - with this duo promo videos featuring "billionaires" of either cities in Batman v Superman - with "Lex Luther" for Metropolis, while "Bruce Wayne" promotes "Gotham" (something totally out of comicbook character as Bruce is drawing attention to his "public" self more … at least the Snyder version is different from the comicbooks, I guess?).


(Also blogged on #popcornX + #manofsteelmovie)

(Also blogged on #popcornX + #xmenonfilm)

The key-focus for X-Men: Apocalypse here, for me in this spot was most definitely the appearance of Olivia Munn's "Psylocke" for more than a headshot (in the last trailer), in a sequence that she's brandishing her psychic knife "in action" - and it is glorious geekboy-action, without a shadow of a doubt, c'mon! (Then of course there's THAT Psylocke versus Deadpool video …)


Ant-Man makes an appearance in Marvel's Captain America: Civil War, and sides have since been chosen for both #TeamCap and #TeamIronMan … Which side would YOU chose?


And speaking of "Ant-Man", the final featured video is for a product, but utilizing characters from the comicbook movies: Ant-Man versus The Hulk (using the likeness of actor Mark Ruffalo from "The Avengers) - with the two different sized characters fighting over … a can of "Coke Mini"? (Reminds e of airline coke cans anyways, doesn't it? Heh).

OTHER movies featured as well include yet another Deadpool, and even 10 Cloverfield Lane had some sort of allusion to "monsters" (but I'm not biting yet…) … and "Jason Bourne" returns with actor Matt Damon, this time in a movie where he doesn't need to be rescued! LOL

Harry Potter Manga

Would be nice if it came with an image or a pic tho...

A photo posted by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on


Having first read the page with no images in the local newspaper earlier in the week (baffled me so with that page featured above), I finally gave in to my curiosity and googled for "Harry Potter Manga" and found out how the boy wizard and his fellow fictional fellows were gonna look, in their next incarnation as chibified-manga characters! But instead of being in serialized sequential comicbook-styled stories, they are printed on folders and made for sale only in Japan. PSYCHE!

"The artwork is the result of a collaboration between a Japanese design firm and a film studio, according to the Guardian. In all, 13 Harry Potter characters got manga treatment. In addition to its eponymous hero, there was also Ron and Hermione, Dumbledore and even Harry's messenger owl Hedwig. The backside of the pictures feature animals representing the four houses of Hogwarts." (Thanks to Yahoo!News)

Look for Artion Association at Booth No.5 and grab their "Artion Puzzke Milk Mart version" if you can!
