Army of Darkness Ash custom by Jeff Beck

Jeff Beck sent us these pics of his SWEET Ash Munny custom, complete with blood spatters, chainsaw hand and crazyface... and he didn't even know that Sam Raimi is my cousin! I love Sam's movies, and Army of Darkness in particular, so I'm really diggin this piece. To follow Jeff Beck, check out these links:

Real Steel AMBUSH articulated robot figure by 3A

Worth noting as 3A makes inroads into manufacturing toys as collabs on other companies' licenses: Ambush, a 42cm (16.5 inch) tall highly articulated robot figure from the Real Steel movie. The detail and weathering is very impressive... this figure was available for preorder from the 3A web shop in mid-April. If you want to follow along with 3A's info and releases in the future, here are their links:

Note for confused newbies: there is nothing currently for sale in the 3A web shop. This is not a mistake. Literally everything 3A makes sells out right away. We recommend signing up for their VOX newsletter to stay informed.

Jon Malmstedt visits Gotto-san's studio in Japan

Our ex-pat buddy Jon Malmstedt (Rampage Toys) now lives in Tokyo. A while back he was fortunate to be able to visit Japanese paint master Gotto-san, and he made this blog post and this video about his visit. Really, super cool to be able to see "behind the scenes" in the production of sofubi.

Something blue and evil this way comes... from Dave Webb

Dave Webb (aka Davemarkart) created this sweet little blue evil thing... whether he knew it or not, he was creating his version of our little blue pitbull logo (below). He wanted to make us a present for helping him out, so he asked us what we wanted. We told him to make us something blue and wicked... and this perfect little monster is what he came up with! A damn fine addition to the official Tenacious Toys collection. Great work Dave! A thousand thank-yous!!!
