Paint Class with Monster Kolor Studios

Paint classes are always fun, whether you are a master painter or just starting to play around with DIY vinyl. Being able to hang out with people who share the same interest makes for a great time. Monster Kolor Studios in Middleboro, MA offers a wide array of paints and ways to apply them. On September 27th from 12pm to 5pm, Monster Kolor Studios will be hosting a Paint Class to show students how to use Monster Kolor paints to paint a Max Toy Co Eyezon. One of the previous classes offered by Monster Kolor involved a lot of air brushing, from techniques to set-up and breakdown. Class spots cost $120 each with a limited number of spots and are available on a first come, first served basis. Everything is included in the price of the class and students are more then welcome to bring any other projects to be painted during the class. Something to note, the toy being provided will only be available during this class.

For more info, be sure to contact the people over at Monster Kolor Studios.

MintyFresh offering 25% off all Kidrobot items- European readers, take note!

When Kidrobot starts clearing out their own inventory, guess what happens? All their retailers holding stock have to follow suit. Looks like European shop MintyFresh is pretty done with this rollercoaster ride and wants to get off... they're offering 25% off Kidrobot toys until mid-September. European customers take note- this is how you can order Kidrobot at a discount. They still have lots of different items left. Really cool items... too bad the manufacturer killed the market for their own products. Good luck to MintyFresh! I got off that rollercoaster a couple years ago. I've been eating cotton candy and shooting BB guns over at the shooting gallery ever since. I watched all those people lining up to ride the rollercoaster and I just felt bad for them...

Mazinger Z: Aphrodite A 15-inch action figure by ThreeZero

-          Aphrodite A stands 15 inches tall.
-          Highly detail mechanic parts.
-          Incredibly paint application to highlight all the details with weathering effect. incredibly what?
-          Fully possible figure. posable? only possible if you have $290 to spend!
-          Articulating fingers.
-          Electable breast missiles. (!!!) I think they mean "ejectable" but I'd vote for them...
-          Lights up eyes, cockpit and both afterburner on her backpack.

All typos aside, this figure looks amazing. Hit me up if you want one. I can only order these if I have minimum 3 committed customers. And by that I mean, preorder and pay up front in full. Will ship free within the US via Fedex.
