Hot Toys - The Dark Knight Armory

So.... the Hot Toys train keeps on a comin'

Yesterday Hot Toys Hong Kong previewed their new planned release for 2014...

The Dark Knight Batman Armory, a high detailed and compressive Batman Armory display taken from the Applied Science Division scene in The Dark Knight.



Looking very much like the unlicensed Toy Legends one that was released a few months back, in fact it looks virtually the same, as I myself have the Toy Legend Armory, that version is a fantastic piece of display, but we now get an officially licensed Armory, no doubt that this will be a big seller for Dark Knight fans.



But thats not all!, we get a choice of packages....

1 is the Armory itself as in the images above, the other 2 you can either have the Amory with Alfred Pennyworth, a brand new sculpt of Alfred OR what you may call the 'Ultimate Package' Armory set that will include the Armani suited Bruce Wayne WITH Alfred Pennyworth!! 

I suspect most people will go for the latter.





If you want full specs then please click links below


No official prices has yet been released but early reports are that the Armory on its own is $2330HKD, the big set being around $3930HKD

Will be available soon for preorder at your usual Hot Toys vendors or at below links....

Nerdirt presents: Gretchen Lewis and her Oopis Nein plushes

Gretchen Lewis is an American Illustrator and plush artist based out of San Francisco California. Self taught as a skilled sewer, Gretchen has creatively brought her illustrations into full dimension to be squeezed and loved as amazing plush figures "Oopis Nein" (which means "Soup is nice" in her magical language). If you are a fan for the designer toy movement and favor plush figures, then this may be a match made in heaven. I feel like Gretchen's plush characters are the gentleman's version of the ugly dolls, giving a distinguished classiness to materials that are reminiscent of our childhood... at least mine. You can find Gretchen's Oopis Nein characters on ETSY and at your finer designer toy shops online and "soon" around the globe!

Support designer toy artists like Gretchen Lewis and you will get a personalized story to go with your beloved plush Oopis Nein character.

Bat-Nosed Basilhog still available at We Become Monsters - but only until Xmas Eve!

Bat-Nosed Basilhog
We Become Monsters will be closing it's online doors temporarily after Xmas Eve, but before that happens, you've still got time to take your pic of some new goodies, and a few old favorites like the ones seen here!



The Bat Nosed Basilhog, 'bat nosed' because these basilhogs echolocate nasally, the oversized nose is thought to serve some role in modifying and directing the echolocation call. While the nasal cavity is strictly for echolocation, the scent receptors on the top of the head are especially attuned to the smell of Ocimum basilicum. These creatures will chew through walls, human flesh and thinner layers of metal or stone to get to the plant once detected. While they only eat basil, and cannot digest meat, since they can detect the odor of basil even after it has been consumed by another animal, they are considered carnivores, and dangerous ones at that. You do not want one burrowing through your belly to get to your Thai lunch.

7.5 inch vinyl Dudebox Dude, sculpted over with epoxy, painted with polyurethane and and acrylics.
