Super Series Sundays: Yolo Mesh by Kyle Kirwan drops March 3



 Our third installment in our weekly Super Series Sundays drops is the Yolo Mesh figure by Kyle Kirwan.

Yolo Mesh is the first mate on the Airship Kellen. He's cranky, strict, sarcastic, and not much fun. But he gets it done, and that's what you want in an airshipman. He's a Nebin from the Island of Bentree in the Broken Ocean, but grew up in Canarthe and has been sailing since he could stand on two feet.


Yolo Mesh is a one-piece resin figure sculpted, cast and painted by Kyle Kirwan, who's basically our neighbor in Bushwick, Bklyn. Standing 5.5 inches tall and produced in a highly limited run of 9 pieces, Tenacious Toys has 5 Yolo Mesh figures to sell at $50 each.

To purchase Yolo Mesh, visit the Super Series Sundays page this Sunday March 3rd at 5PM EST.

Upcoming releases in the Super Series Sundays schedule will be Task One and Evilos.

Introducing Compulsion Magazine for the iPad

Compulsion Magazine: The Art of Collecting Toys

We'd like to introduce you to our latest project: Compulsion Magazine! In order to spread the toy collecting love far and wide, we began developing a digital magazine about toy collecting late last year. Compulsion Magazine is currently available on the iPad (although we plan on expanding to the Kindle for Issue #2) by clicking here and going to iTunes. Follow the link and get a full table of contents for the issue.

Big black boxes are for videos, which are embedded into the page! Hours of viewing entertainment!

Compulsion's first issue was compiled with the help of many people in the toy industry: artists, bloggers, writers, manufacturer representatives, photographers and internet TV shows all provided content. We're even running a giveaway inside the issue for one of Furry Feline Creative's NYCC plushes!

For Issue #2 we will be tapping some of the same resources by including TV shows and videos about toys, articles, show coverage and interviews. But we used the recent Toy Fair in NYC as an opportunity to get some bigger and more mainstream toy manufacturers involved:



Speaking of Toy Fair: recently we rolled out a quickie free Special Issue that gives you an inside peek into Toy Fair 2013. With photographs by Toygodd spanning 20 of the major booths at the event, this issue brings you in where the general public usually can't go. Click here to go to iTunes to the Compulsion page- the Toy Fair Issue should be a free download for you on your iPad. Each manufacturer's page also includes links to buy those toys on the internet.

If you dig what you see, you can opt to download Issue #1 for $1.99, or better yet, subscribe so you get the chance to download Issue #2 when we roll it out. Our next issue will incorporate discount codes and promotions exclusively for subscribers, the value of which will far exceed the cover price!

We hope you enjoy reading COMPULSION MAGAZINE!

Post Apocalypse vs Don P series

Hey guys.....since they are out now, here my first custom series of these Post Apocalypse Dunnys. You can grab them at Mintyfresh (€89,95) http://www.mintyfresh.eu/designer-toys/customs/don-p/

Straight from the frontline of the apocalyptic battlefields of Kidrobia come the Mecha Rabbits, these Mechanized Rabbits are out for blood. They're ready to free their family and friends from the prison camps of General Xam Dam Scheisserhino or simply taring apart a nearby encampment of the Road Warriors Clan. Either way the Mecha Rabbits always bring fireworks to their parties in the desert...

The Mecha Rabbit/Bee Dunny by Don P. is a custom designer toy made of an Heavy Trooper Dunny/Geisha Duunny from Huck Gee's Post-Apocalypse Dunny Series and is limited to 1 piece worldwide.

Looking for home series by E.Ipolani

Grab these ones....they look awesome and you help a great artist! 
Today at 12pm (PST) these puppies will be on shadoedelgado.com
E. Ipolani has created a special series of 13 2.5" Micro Munny's priced at $40 ea.  It's lower than what she would normally sell them for, but with good cause!

"The series is called: "Looking for home" and it's to raise funding for an amazingly gifted artist friend of mine named Shadoe.  He and his girlfriend are moving from San Francisco and need a little help getting back to his hometown in Arizona.  He's been doing everything he can to make the move as smooth as possible, but we're in tough times and it never hurts to get some help from friends!"

Zombie Dunny by Don P

My newest 3 inch Dunny...

This little zombie Dunny lives on the planet Rabbitea. On this planet everything is different. There are reallife teddybears, who are used as pets and they are from flesh and blood. This little zombie rabbit just killed one of those teddybears. He has planned to kill some more, since he has a desire for the blood of teddybears. Who will stop this guy?

Camilla d'Errico Custom Android & Live Painting

 
A couple of weeks ago a Work-In-Progress photo surfaced of pop surrealist contemporary painter Camilla d'Errico working on a custom Android. She has finished the piece- and what a charming little girl she is! Bright blue eye a-twinkle, Camilla's signature traditional media style is very present when she, infrequently, paints designer toys.
 
Getting to watch Camilla paint on toys or canvas is mesmerizing- and Camilla will be live-painting at Emerald City Comic Con Fri Mar 1st in The Baltic Room 9:30pm. Hosted by outstanding female SuperGeek Molly McIsaac, artists David Mack, Carl Faulkner, Mark Brooks, Rebecca Watts, Camilla and many more will be live-painting into the night. The pieces the artists create will then be auctioned at ECCC the following day to raise money for Seattle Children's Hospital.

 
If you're attending Emerald City, or in the Seattle area, you can find Camilla d'Errico at ECCC Artist Alley booth#B15-16 where she'll be celebrating a new Charity Print Release and her brand new Artbook release from Darkhorse Comics.
 
Find more of Camilla's artwork on her website, Facebook, Instagram @camilladerrico , Twitter @Helmetgirl or e-mail inquiries to info@camilladerrico.com
