Since the previous announcement of John Santagada's upcoming vinyl toy project "Radioactive Uppercut" (Facebook), Niall Anderson aka [Tru:Tek] of Man-E-Toys.com shares with us a first look at debut figure 8-Ball! John will be funding the project through Kickstarter, with a tentative ‘live’ date now set for July 1st, so stay tuned for updates on that end."Revealed as the ‘Radioactive Rumblers’, the ongoing series is set to feature a number of 4″ designs inspired by old sci-fi and horror flicks, 80’s toys, garbage pail kids and comic books of the 50’s and 60’s, each coming rotocast in vinyl with a number of ‘city crushing’ points of articulation (3 in the case of 8-Ball!)."
"95% DONE" = be this Mega Munny Boba Fett by The Yellow Dino [last seen HERE], and I cannot wait to see MEGA DINO FETT in person at the weekend's Star Wars Day Jakarta!

From the Banimon blog:
So as the drop date is approaching, the details are slowly unfolding. As far as toys are concerned, we will have two new colorways: the Revolutionary Guard (Red Army Men faction) and Ghost Troopers (Banigoth faction). Colors are blue with red paint and detail lines, and Glow in the dark with Black paint apps and no detail lines. There will also be some brand-new Banimon content detailing the clash of these two elite units in a fierce battle for Planet Havvacor, and a special, limited-edition t-shirt.
The blue that Boris chose for the Revolutionary Guard is really stunning in hand, and pulls off quite a unique look with the red detail lines in place. For the Ghost Troopers he selected a high contrast black for the spray applications, and the effect is extremely crisp and completely ominous -especially once the lights go out!
Our crew is very excited to see what Boris unveils tomorrow night!
Keep cranking B!
