With preview trailers of Captain America: The Winter Soldier hitting the airwaves, Hot Toys is giving collectors a fairly nice toy teaser. Obviously, they're preparing a large range of collectibles from the movie. They'll also be hosting exhibitions in a number of countries in the near future.
Finally, The Sicklings have their very own online home to nestle in! Thanks to creator Yosiell Lorenzo, you can find out more about where the Sicklings live, what they eat and their secret society, all via www.sicklings.com, which will be launched Wednesday, along with new Sickling cllectibles!"I want my collectors to know that they are buying into a bigger story, not just a random resin figure with no history or back story. I'm really excited about launching the site and will definitely be expanding the Sicklings world as time goes on." -adds Yosiell.
The first release is "The Order of the Mystics". These Sicklings are 6.5" tall and are an edition of 4 signed and numbered. They come with their own Grimoire (book of spells) and other secrets and rituals. Both Sickling and Grimoires are hand painted and resin based. The figures will go for US$175.00 shipped (in USA)
The last release are the "Sickling Snail Riders". These are one-offs and 4 will be available. The sickling snail riders are 5" tall, numbered and signed and will go for US$100.00 shipped. These will be available Wednesday at 11am PST over at shoplorenzo.storenvy.com
4 Cute, Collectable Kaiju USB Toy Figurines that "Defend Planet Earth from Invading Monsters," can be had if this Kickstarter reaches their goal of US$25K (by April 2.2014). Shown above is the Godai "CHI", representing the "Earth" element.
"Kaiju USB: GODAI Guardians" features a quartet of kaiju-creations developed to be 3-dimensional shaped forms which double up as USB-devices, the background story of whichcn be red at the Kickstarter-link, along with features of swell commissioned artwork from artists depicting the four creatures ("Guardians") representing earth, water, fire, wind, and the 5th being the "Overseer"."In this story, the Kaiju from earth are simply misunderstood. They want to protect life on Earth, not destroy it. We think this is an interesting take on the whole Kaiju genre in that we see them more as massive elemental protectors, rather than traditional invaders."
(Cheers for the headsup Corey)
To celebrate the season of "True Detective", Bottleneck Gallery has released "Rust" and "Marty" by Romanian-artist Nagy Norbert, with each Giclee print sized 13 x 19 inches, and is numbered out of an edition of 75, priced at US$35 each. There will also be a matching numbered set edition that will cost US$65. Purchase via www.bottleneckgallery.com.
I've not had the pleasure of watching this new series everyone seems to be going on about (not as much as "Breaking Bad" has tho) but I reckon this might please the fans.
Interestingly there is yet another painted image / "fan art" of "Rust" with a different background, found on his Facebook page … would be interesting if this was a "chase" edition, maybe? Absolute unfounded speculation on my part, of course :)
From Crying Gull Toys comes spanking new Vato-Bot colorways - with only 3pcs of Circus Peanut and Skywarp Purple each available via cryinggulltoys.storenvy.com for US$14 each, coming complete with special edition header cards and re-sealable packaging. And remember the multicolored editions of this Decepticon x Latin gangster figurine I featured earlier? They are still snaggable here for $14 now - might as well grb the whole lot for cheaper combined shipping, no? :)
Since the Godzilla trailer has been released, toys have been steadily been stocked and released (a few of which I had featured on PopcornX), and thanks to Tomenosuke, we have a few more images - and a video - to share for the 40" figure from Jakks Pacific, which has since climbed unto my TOYWISHLIST … hoping to see it Singapore shops soon tho! (And I don't mean the elevated priced ones, thanks … LOL)
Looks like there's no teasing for Hot Toys' "Black Widow" figure from "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (Unlike the Captain himself), with a straightup reveal of their 1/6th-scale adaptation of the super-spy, starring Scarlet Johansson, with a new (rooted) hairstyle (on a slightly bigger-head-to-body) seen in the movie! Do check in with your fav retailer(s) for availability and pricing, while we present to you more studio snaps, as well as a "bonus" behind-the-scenes featurette focusing on The Black Widow!
HOT TOYS PRESS: "“The world is a vulnerable place but we're the best qualified to defend it”. One of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s greatest female spies, Black Widow, will be back in action and team up with Captain America in the upcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie which hits the theatres very soon! The movie trailers have already pumped up many fans’ anticipation, and now Hot Toys is getting fans ready for this exciting film by introducing the brand new 1/6th scale Black Widow Collectible Figure!
The movie-accurate collectible is specially crafted based on the image of Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in the film featuring a newly developed head sculpt with straight brownish-red real fabric hair, newly designed tight-fitting costume made with multiple materials, detailed weapons and accessories. Fans don’t miss the chance to pre-order this gorgeous collectible figure!"
Spotted on the Michael Lau Facebook fanpage, is a scanned page (off east touch magazine - issue 980) featuring a 9" tall WOOD JORDON! A new vinyl piece with the finish replicating the texture of wood (like his earlier releases; KINDERGARDENER, ZEX, Woody Hardy), featuring a return to the afro hairdo, and a highly "cartoonier" facial appearance - which frankly I would not have ever associated with ML if not mentioned in advance.
Limited to 99 pieces, they will be first made available at the GUMGUMGUM store in Hong Kong for the "KICK YOUR $$$" event (happening March 14-16th), which celebrates Jordon sneakers, as well as the release of a "Michael Jordan Last Shot exclusive" from ENTERBAY. 'Bundle' price has been mentioned to be HK$1699 in store, but I cannot authenticate that.
From Jordon23s to the red-shirted Chicago Bulls Jordon49 (pic via STStyle), Mr Lau sure likes his Jordons! I'm personally liking the all-Black version tho!

The name "My Little Cthulhu" (not the projects' official title) no doubt conjures up images of a "My Little Pony" and the multi-tentacled Cthulhu hybrid, and this is in fact what "Little Maddie" does look like (and yes, she has a "name"), currently being developed for a series of of multimedia projects - which includes animation shorts and toys - by the fine folks at Bigshot Toyworks, for a as-yet-named client.
And while rendered images (posted at bottom of post) had galloped thru the internet not too long ago, today we bring you folks WIPs of the figure undergoing paintworks (or more specifically, a paint master presentation sample)! Yes, there is a tangible collectible to be had, available as a reward in a Kickstarter for the project to be unveiled very soon = which will either delight your Lovecraft-loving senses, or scare your wee offspring into total submission! (No, I have zero children of my own, so I can claim this irresponsibly muahahahahaha)
Naaaah, Maddie is a wee adorable critter, isn't she? :)
"Maddie is a main character in a project we are going to unveil via Kickstarter shortly. There is a big hilarious story, a rich world populated by a lot of funny characters (and) Maddie is one of the main players. We will (also be introducing) some of the other characters via kickstarter - not all of them are horses - and offer people an opportunity to support the project and get their own 6" vinyl Maddie as a reward." -shared Klim Kozinevich (The "Bigshot" at Bigshot Toyworks) exclusively with TOYSREVIL!
