We've been having some serious problems with the UK postal service of late (our C2E2 exclusives ending up in Australia last week being the most recent example!), so to celebrate our hate of the Royal Mail we'll be offering up the new ROYAL FAIL: LETTERS 'AVE IT! mini figure for 40% off!

Created by Matt 'Lunartik' JOnes in conjunction with Tru:Tek's upcoming H.U.S.T.L.E Artist Series: Wave 2, this edition, originally created for ToyCon UK earlier in the month, has been cast in a metallic plum coloured rubber with red/gold chase. Limited to just 25 pieces, each 2" M.U.S.C.L.E style figure comes signed and numbered, packaged in a beautiful custom-made mini postal box with exclusive H.U.S.T.L.E stamp and signing card. Originally on sale at the con for £25 ($38), we will be listing the figure on the Man-E-Toys store at $23 for the foreseeable future...

  Forceolicism 2: The Passion of the Wookiee blind-boxed resin figure by Forces of Dorkness

The second release in the Forces of Dorkness Forceolicism series is The Passion of the Wookiee. This is a run of 20 blind-boxed resin figures in unique colorways. Scott is drop-shipping so we have no control over who gets what color. This is a mashup of a Chewbacca figure, a crucifix and Scott's sculpting handiwork. Scott uniquely illustrated each box by hand!

Each piece is 6 inches tall, 4 inches wide and made of resin. Every piece is uniquely colored due to different colors of resin used during casting but all colors incorporate some blue. The pieces were all sculpted, molded and cast by Scott Kinnebrew and includes an attached wall mount on the back.

These are available now for only $50 a piece on the Tenacious Toys online store.

Fellow Robotipus by One-Eyed Girl

I love this Lego guy extremely. Great details and concept!

Meet Fellow Robotipus!  Fellow Robotipus is the sweetest little old man robot.  A customized Lego Torch Flashlight, he stand about 8" tall.  Fellow Robotpus is a content and happy little gentleman just looking for his sweetheart fembot to shower with love and gifts!  I jumped out of my comfort zone for this one, robots aren't really my thing.  I tried to just stick with my style rather than focusing on how to make him too robotic.  I like him. My cute little old man will be on display at "Designing Outside The Lines", a lego-inspired show curated by James Brown at 1AM Gallery in San Francisco.

 "Most of us played with Legos as children, but some of us never stopped. The artists in “Designing Outside The Lines” are some of the most prominent Lego and toy designers around the world, spanning from the US to the Netherlands. Whether they are using record breaking amounts of Lego pieces, introducing new materials to Lego customization, combining simple minifigs with complex machinery, or anonymously installing ginormous Lego men on public beaches- they are definitely some of the most imaginative artists out there."
