Dice Age - Toys, Art & Endless Games All in One!

Dice Age is art, it's a game, and it's a toy, but it's more than that. Lovingly designed and submitted to Kickstarter, they were originally supposed to be produced by a factory overseas. When the factory did not come through as promised, the designer was left with orders to fill and no product. Why should it end there? In an inspiring tale of perseverance, they began casting by hand in resin, and painting each one. Now they are being made available to the rest of us as well!

As with traditional dice, there are no limits to the games you can play with these. There is a Compendium outlining the aspects of each die (40 different sculpts in 2 series so far) and there are at least 4 primary games being played already. The website attempts to document them all, from short and simple (a stacking game) to a fairly complex strategy game for 2-4 players that can take up to a half hour.  
To play the games, all you need is a handful or more of these lovely clunkers, and at an average cost of about $3 each, that's not hard to get. At the site you will find the option to make custom 2-packs from each series, so you can pick the pieces you want, or you can order a complete set of either series. Each of those are hand-painted by the designer but there is also an option to buy 15 unpainted dice for $32.


Four Horsemen to Revive Power Lords in 3 3/4!

“The Mayan year has begun. As foretold in 669 AD by the famous prophecy carved into Monument 6 in the Mayan site of Tortuguero, this date signals the return of the “Bolon Yokte Ku” — The Nine Lords of Power. It is therefore, with great reverence, that the Four Horsemen of the Toypocalypse hereby proclaim the return of the Nine Power Lords and reveal the identity of a Tenth who dwells among us and has the power to save us all.”

At Toypocalypse 3 in NYC this February 9th, the Four Horsemen will unveil prototypes of their new Power Lords, based on the vintage line by Revell. Having acquired the license and teamed up with the original creator Wayne Douglas Barlowe, they plan to release a 3 3/4" scale action figure line with a mixture of traditional articulation and Glyos-compatibility.

At the new Power Lords website you can sign up for the Official Fan Club and get early merchandise as well as advance notice of sales and first chances at product. This is available at $20, $50 and $150 levels, so there is something for fans of all kinds. I'd highly recommend choosing one of these if you are serious about collecting these figures.

The 4H have proved with their Outer Space Men figures have proved that those boys know how to handle the Glyos system with typical aplomb, so rest assured this will be a line to watch, and grab quick!
