The name "My Little Cthulhu" 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!

Here's a peek at a upcoming new collectible toy available from Artransmitte = "Dead Hippie" is the name, and he is designed by Canadian Illustrator Patrick Wong, who will also hand cast them himself. Check out the colored turnarounds posted below for reference of how the dude might look!
Look for this 3-inch tall resin toy to be had at Artransmitte's booth at ToyCon UK happening April 12th, and stay tuned to further developments and product updates via this humble blog, or Twitter @artransmitte!
The Best Toy Line category is really about toy lines that have produced a consistently good/entertaining lineup over the past year. As we look at five of them...there's pretty much something for everyone here.
5. Topozoo by Geared For Imagination
The Topozoo line features wooden animals and robots that you can put together (or take apart), featuring interchange parts. Want to keep a three year old busy for an hour or so....here you go.
4. Mystical Warriors of the Ring
The Mystical Warriors of the Ring started out as a small run resin figure venture, but NYCC featured the unveiling of their first PVC production trio. The line features a simple premise...crazy looking monster things battle it out in a wrestling ring for your pleasure.
3. OMFG! by October Toys
Now finished with their third series of crowdsourced Kickstarted mini-figs, October Toys' OMFG! series shows no signs of losing steam. They continue to receive solid submissions from artists looking to get their nipple-ring-wearing-pug designs turned into a toy.
2. Cosbaby (S) Series by Hot Toys
The Cosbaby mini figure series from Hot Toys allows collectors the ability to see their favorite film characters as little kids. Essentially, they're supposed to be kids doing cosplay as those characters. Ten year old fans of Monsters University and Iron Man who dress up and go to Cons will get me...right?
**WINNER** 1. POP! Vinyl by Funko
Funko has really expanded their POP! Vinyl series. They've picked up licenses from Uglydolls to Game of Thrones to Disney films to Jay and Silent Bob. So, yep, they're all over the place.
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.
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!
