I gotta say, I loved the email subject title when I read it just; "BITCH Reveal" ~ LOL (and a warm hello back, Heidi!)
And it is essentially that = a sneak peek at the full reveal of Luke Chueh's "Bitch" - as produced by Munky King and sculpted by Pretty In Plastic! Do stay tuned for further product and availability details, folks, and prepare to howl like you mean it! LOL
The IMAX Poster for "Godzilla" is pretty! Plus a distinct homage to the Japanese flag heheh of a Red dot n white :) (Source: SHH)
Check out the Japanese trailer for the American adaptation of a classic kaiju monster created by the Japanese (Source: io9.com / Some screengrabs posted here on PopcornX).
Counting down to the Friday April 25th launch of their crowdfunding project at drippletoy.com, toymakers Mighty Jaxx have started to reveal more than the 2D-visuals and/or announcements of artists' designs seen thus far, with TOUMA's design in full (sized next to a 3" Dunny), and as well sculpts for MR Shane Jessup and Tristan Eaton.
I like it that each design seems to come with it's own hand-held accessory and (perhaps) individualistic hand-gestures, and am interested to see more! Stay tuned to 25.04.201 on www.drippletoy.com, folks!

With the reveal of Bad Ass: Mecha not too long ago, Pobber hits us with yet another spectacular surprise uppercut, with the the reveal BAD ASS MUTANT A! This incarnation of Kronk's design is exclusive to, and will launch at Thailand Toy Expo (May 1-4 @ Central World, Bangkok). No further product details reveled as yet beyond these pics (via IG @pobbertoys).
I like it when KR does "themed" series, as it somehow leaves a semblance of "story cohesiveness" to the otherwise aesthetically-pleasing only pieces of painted plastic, IMHO. With the 3 dudes teased above, it looks to be a "Warriors"-styled clash of gangs/warlords over some corner street of a post-Apocalyptical urban city, with katannas and lightsabers! LOL
I was going to make an off-color quip about "ladyboys" (with "Hangover 3" scarred in my memoryscape watched on the telly not too long ago…) … but instead I'm going to go with: "nice hair!" ...
THAI ADVENTURE ISOBELLE / PASCHA joins TK Thiddy and Mighty Squares as exclusives for JP Toys in the upcoming Thailand Toy Expo (May 1-4 @ Central World, Bangkok).

Well...after Kidrobot had a 75% off "Warehouse" Sale - angering some retailers in the process - now comes word that they'll be shutting down their NYC flagship store. I remember heading out to the Prince St. spot ten years ago to pick up a handful of Qees. That seems like ages ago.
Dear Kidrobot Community,
After an amazing decade-plus year run, our beloved Kidrobot New York City location will be regretfully closing its doors at the end of this month. Kidrobot New York is an iconic store, a global destination for Kidrobot fans worldwide, and a tremendous asset to our brand. The incredible staff (both past and present), whom we are so thankful for, engaged with a talented network of artists and a passionate community of fans and collectors that we have grown to call family.
This was an incredibly difficult decision for us; however, continuing to operate the current store at its present size and location is just no longer feasible. We know we belong in New York City and (don’t worry!) we have every intention to re-open in a new location in the future where we can continue to build the community together.
As we scout our new location and go through this transition we want to thank all of you for your past, present and future support. We thank the fans and collectors that only New York can bring. We thank the committed artists and customizers who give of their time and talent and who have grown to be mentors and teachers. We thank the local partners, sponsors, and collaborators whose relationship and camaraderie we value working with. We could not be here without you and we will continue to bring you exciting new art, products and brands as well as the kind of experiences that only Kidrobot can deliver.
In the meantime, you will continue to find Kidrobot items at the amazing specialty stores throughout New York. And of course, we invite you to visit Kidrobot retail locations in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Boulder or online at Kidrobot.com.
