Centered around customizing Boundless Brooklyn's Model Water Tanks, "The Art Of The Tag" show features works by a long list of awesome artists. All artists were asked to customize one of Boundless Brooklyn's Model Tanks, essentially "tagging" the mini replicas. Artists have been teasing WIP pieces, as well as completed Towers all over social media and the results are amazing. Be sure to follow Boundless Brooklyn on Instagram and also check out the gallery on the Boundless Brooklyn website, there is a lot of great work to be seen.

Dissected Gingerbread Man - Jason Freeny x Mighty Jaxx

Jason Freeny and Mighty Jaxx have teamed up to produce an awesome 3D version of Freeny's Dissected Gingerbread Man. Available in the original Gingerbread Man colorway and a Blank DIY version, pre-orders are going on now. Each Dissected Gingerbread Man is 6", with a spot to place a hanging hook on the back, so the piece can be hung as decoration on the tree, or wherever. Priced at $20 plus shipping, the original colorway is ready to hang, in time for Christmas 2014. The DIY version is priced at $15 plus shipping, a blank slate to be customized by kids and adults alike. Both versions are available now for pre-order and orders placed sooner than later should have these pieces delivered in time for Christmas. Great job on the production by Mighty Jaxx and another great piece from Jason Freeny.

Pumpkin Spice Dunny Cakes by Random Skull Productions

Alex Hallman, aka Random Skull Productions, recently released his latest custom Dunny series titled Dunny Cakes, Pumpkin Spice version. Consisting of a set of 3 custom resin Dunnys and wrappers, the Orange "Pumpkin Spice" frosting is GID, while the body is colored brown, like chocolate cake. The black wrappers are also GID, creating a nice 3" Dunny combination for the Halloween season. As of this posting, the sprinkled covered versions are sold out, while the clean frosting Dunny Cake version is still available (which can also have frosting added if wanted). Each Dunny Cake is priced at $35 plus shipping. With a few more holidays coming up around the corner, it's likely that more Dunny Cakes will make an appearance, appropriately colored for the holidays. For those who are interested, it's likely that Alex could take commission requests to accommodate any holiday or occasion.

Adam Quesnell's DESPAIR

After more than a year of development from start to finish, Adam Quesnell announced the release of his first limited edition mini-figure, Despair!  

Despair is a demon from the 10th Circle of Hell; the level where people who make bad cinematic adaptations of classic toy properties are flayed for eternity. Not your average demon, Despair suffers from severe anxiety disorder and crippling depression.

Satan himself banished Despair from Hell for being a major bummer.

Cast out upon the earth in a fiery geyser of lava and tears, Despair landed in the parking lot of a comedy club that was hosting a weekly open mic night. Despair put his name on the sign-up sheet, got on stage, and told his story. Since then, he has been punishing himself, night after night, on comedy stages of varying quality throughout the Midwest. He dances and lashes himself for audiences with hopes of selling t-shirts and CDs to drunk people who will not wear or listen to them.

The figures will be available at 6:66pm (cst) on Halloween at in Marbled Orange and Blue (20), Stealth (10), GiD (10), Neon Green (20), Neon Purple, (20), Neon Orange (20), Hot Pink (20), Flesh (20), Red (15) and Blue (20). They won't be sold blind, so first come first serve. A Red and Black Marbled colorway will be released at a later date at

Additionally, we'll have a very limited run of exclusive Tenacious Toys blue Despairs in the near future.  We'll post more info on those as it appears.
