A photo posted by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on


A week ago today, I shared the above image with my filmmaking class (where I lecture part-time these days) with the intention of the montaged images representing a person's own "life" (as it were), and how his/her likes (and dislikes) are a part of their lives that they want to showcase to folks not necessarily knowing them personally, both their past and present, using existing things/items they already own.

And while I'll not explain the exact function of this image to you folks reading here (in relation to my class), it as well served as a reminder of how my life currently is, and how intertwined with THIS blog (you are kindly reading, my humble THANK YOUS) interspersed with treasures of my past.

Think of it as a "snapshot" of "life" - and in this particular image above - I present to you; "MY LIFE". :)

Some images might be familiar with folks here, some totally alien. Each item represents a facet, a memory, a milestone, a frozen moment of my life I hold dear and what to remember, a "time capsule" with it's contents laid out, if you may!

The "challenge" I set off today (should you choose to accept it :p), is for YOU (dear readers) to show us YOUR life in a single image, using not less than 10 and not more than 15 items (no repeats of a single item), and hashtag it "#moodboardme".

Instagram it. Facebook it. Share with us YOU.

Cheers, and look forward to meeting you soon :)
Andy

P/S: This is not a contest nor giveaway. Just done in the spirit of sharing and fun!

Introducing The Blaming One by Kosrobot (From the Cosmos Cold Series)

STORY: "The Blaming One was the crew commander of Emerald Castle space station. Nothing really changed since then, except they're all dead now. He wanders the station in search of the one to blame, the one to say to: THIS IS ALL BECAUSE OF YOU!"
From Kosrobot comes the second charter figure from the Cosmos Cold series, with this companion to the Dreary One dead cosmonaut named "the Blaming One"!

The Blaming One is planned to be released this summer, with a price point at US$45 (+$10 worldwide shipping). Stands 6 inch tall, cast in resin, and will feature 3 points of articulation (head and arms). Seen here today are pictures of original clay model, as the resin prototype in not finished yet.

"Like with Dreary One, you have multiple parts to interchange. You can swap head, face and arms. Parts are compatible with Dreary One and future Cosmos Cold releases. Comes bagged with header card. Several color variants are planned. Unlike Dreary One, the Blaming One is cast in hard solid resin, not soft resin, and the overall quality of the product is going to be better." - shared Konstantin Budkevich AKA Kosrobot.

Doubleparlour Drops For Friday May 27th


Scheduled for a drop this coming Friday May 27th (12pm Pacific / 3pm Eastern) online via doubleparlour.myshopify.com, are new hand-made and hand-painted collectible character figures from San Francisco-based artistic duo Ernie and Cassandra Velasco, better known as "Doubleparlour".

Striving to produce "well-crafted artwork with an emphasis on peculiar, humorous, and melacholy characters", their works traditionally do not hang around for long before getting snatched up by their solid fans, especially since their pieces go for extremely limited runs, as little as 3 to 5pcs per. So I'd stay sharp if I were you, if you are not already a fan of their work, of course!

Stay connected to their Instagram @doubleparlour for updates, and scroll down for more peeks at what characters to be had tis coming Friday!


Sadies, Friday, 12pmP/3pmE, limited to 3, http://doubleparlour.myshopify.com

Test Paint Jiangshi Acolytes from Daniel Yu x Unbox Industries


With the Blue Edition Jiangshi Acolyte since sold out at Thailand Toy Expo 2016 (where it launched), producers Unbox Industries is currently testing COLORS for the figures created by Daniel Yu, with the test paint options shown thusly, looking like the well weathered detail and depth of colors since synonymous with Daniel's paintwork, IMHO!

So which version of this 9-inch tall vinyl Jiangshi do YOU prefer to have?

Feel free to leave your preferences on the accompanying IG-images :)
