Don't Deadbeet around the bush!

Imma just break it down like this:
Exhibit A: Killer concept by Scott Tolleson
Exhibit B: Killer sculpt by George Gaspar of October Toys, scaled with OMFG figures
Exhibit C: 2 FREAKIN' DOLLARS EACH!?  Awesome.
Exhibit D: First Class Shipping option (so your $2 minifigure doesn't cost $11 to ship - a pet peeve of mine)

I did not feel guilty about buying these immediately and neither should you.

Flight 3" Dunny by Kano

Kidrobot and Kano, of Kanokid Studios, release the first Dunny of 2013, a 3" Dunny titled "Flight". The Dunny features a uniquely shaped head and a color scheme reminiscent of the old Transformers cartoon and toys. This Dunny design is limited to 3000 pieces and what looks to be 3 different colorways, however, there is no word on color ratios. The red, white and blue version is the main colorway, with the picture being on the Dunny box. Also, a purple and black colorway was leaked on Trampt. Nothing yet on the third colorway, but I'm hoping that the color is going to have more blues. If the color schemes look or sound familiar to anyone, just think Thundercracker or Thrust, Starscream, and Skywarp. Of course this is a reach, since there is no official word of what the influence behind Kano's design, but there seems to be more than meets the eye.

Flight Dunny Product Preview  
The Flight Dunny will be hitting stores on January 17th and will retail for $14.95 US, £12 UK, and €13.90 EU, depending on your location.

Kumiho Custom Fonzo by Artmymind

Kumiho is a wonderful custom Fonzo creation for the "Fonzo Love NY" show at My Plastic Heart by the duo at Artmymind, Guillaume & Julia Lachambre. With the Artmymind duo recently having to move studios, while also enjoying the holidays, I am amazed with this latest creation. Artmymind did a great job with the Fonzo by making it stand 8" tall and even giving it a tail. The metal looking arm reminds me a bit of the recent film, "The Man with the Iron Fist". The colors and other sculpted features stand out in pictures, which leads me to believe that this piece is going to look even better in person. Made from epoxy clay, sculpey, acrylics, wood and other materials, Kumiho is just another representation of how good Artmymind is at creating great pieces of art. Whoever ends up this great piece is one lucky person.

The Fonzo Love NY show at MyPlasticHeart is going to be one great show. The show opens today, January 11, 2013. With the opening reception from 6pm-9pm with many of the artists making an appearance at the reception.

Killdroid 5000 2.0 custom by Josh Mayhem

The Killdroid 5000 Ver. 2.0 was inspired by the original Killdroid 5000 Josh created for the custom "Dunny Show" at Plastic Chapel in Denver CO. This collector wanted something similar to the original so Josh kept the aged metal look while implementing the look and style of a Gunny. The wings and head articulate with this piece as well.

Josh Mayhem is still accepting commissions for Gunnys in specific color variations and Gundam characters.

Deathscythe Gunny by Josh Mayhem

With the Deathscythe Gunny the collector wanted a Gunny with the features of the Deathcythe Gundam figure. The wings close around this custom as is does the original Gundam toy, and the head articulates as well.

Fonzo Growhouse by Ian Ziobrowski for MPH Fonzo custom show

The Fonzo Growbot, is one of the many interesting grow facilities created by NUGGs.  This old scrapie robotic, piece of junk is completely self reliable.  Produces its own energy, gather's its own water, and feeds its own plants.  Once every 3 months NUGGS come's back around to gather his greens, and the cycle continues on as long as there's no interferences. 

Materials: Acrylic, sculpty, wood, plastic, LEDs
Price: $700

The Wolf Rider multiple by Huck Gee

"Something Wolfy this way comes." 
The Wolf Rider. Kicked my ass but I'm really happy with the final results. I hope it shows.

Each figure is signed, numbered and includes shown accessories. Due to the nature of the materials, some differences should be expected in each figure. 10 figures in this set, $1600 per figure.

These will be distributed on a first come, first serve basis. Anyone interested, please email ASAP to reserve your figure.

Galactic Jerkbags x Suckadelic x Glyos - A Nasty Exclusive!

Unless you've been living under a big ol' rock - you know that two of the hottest things in designer toys right now are Glyos and The Sucklord. Love them or hate them, no one can resist their power forever. If you're feeling weak already and your wallet is prepared, then don't worry! The official Sucklord fansite, has just announced their second Suckadelic exclusive: Interplanetary Bromance, and is planning to release it in the last week of January.

So far all we have is the header art and this fuzzy pic but we know that it will be limited to 21 pieces and that each figure is hand dyed and painted. IrishMofo (the mastermind behind Galactic Jerkbags) has hinted that there might be more to this than expected from the preview pics. The devoted should all stay tuned to his Twitter account for more teasers in the coming weeks while we wait for a drop date.

KidKratos by Commandante

Can't descibe words for this one. Commandante nailed this KidKratos. The sculpting and the paintwork is top notch. The blades are the finishing touch. Totally love it!

Custom mascot 7", of the God Of War character, commission for Don P; the blades are aluminum made by my friends Triple Trouble ( a.k.a. Los Rivas ) - Commandante
