SD Fake Baron Keshi by Tru:Tek x Awesome Toys

After months of development, the latest from Awesome Toy and Tru:Tek is finally being released for purchase. Awesome Toy has an ongoing Artist Collection series, with the latest being called the "Super Deformed" Fake Baron Keshi, from Tru:Tek and Disart ToyLabs. Designed by Tru:Tek, SD Fake Baron fits in the standard vintage SD super bot keshi, 3D sculpted by Brownoize to be just under 1" tall. With 2 initial buying options, a 3-pack with the classic red, yellow and blue figures, as well as a singular version in red (fitted to be a pencil topper). Priced at $15 for the 3 pack and $7 for the singular pencil topper, these keshi-style little rubber guys are available now through Toy Underground Store. Be sure to be on the lookout for more information regarding an exclusive figure from Disart ToyLabs, coming in the near future.

NEW MOTU Retro 3.75" Action Figures by Super7 Feature Jason Edmiston Artwork on Packaging

There are a lot of reasons why I'm excited about this new Masters of the Universe retro-style line of 3.75" action figures that Super7 has up for preorder... but the main thing that stopped me and forced me to blog is that each package features SWEET artwork by legendary painter Jason Edmiston.

Jason graced Bigshot Toyworks' FUnicorn package with an epic scene featuring the FUnicorn at the top of an exploding volcano. What many people might not realize is that the packaging artwork began as a painting! Like, a real fucking painting, executed with a brush and actual paint. These days... that's notable.

Big ups to Jason for killing it as usual, and big ups to Super7 for tapping him for this series of packaging art. So good.
