Toy Fail #2

This one isn't as much of a fail of the last one for 2 reasons.
1) it seems to be a mis-package and
2) it worked towards my advantage since I got another Soundwave to add to my collection.

Mini Monday #1

New feature, random mini toys, mostly from Japan and blind box, some American stuff. Hope you like this. See, I just don't get 3 3/4"/ 1:18th action figures!

This mini toys are made by Furuta and feature characters from the New Super Mario Bros. Wii game, which is hella fun! They're all blind box and come in a capsule within a chalky chocolate egg. I don't recommend eating the chocolate. A small bite made me feel nauseous. Today's figure is Mecha Koopa!
Play with this instead!

Toy Fail #1

So I've decided to fill this blog with certain features on certain days because work I'm doing keeps me busy and sometimes it taking me too long for me to write reviews or post picture from events. I'll still have those but the features are for those of you who enjoy toys.

Today's feature isn't specified to a certain day since these events happen randomly but I thought I'd share which I like to call a TOY FAIL. It's when when some unscrupulous person buys a toy, switches a part or figure with a junk toy and returns it. Not cool and unfortunate.

In this TOY FAIL someone not only switched the Ultron for a Power Rangers knock-off but they switched the Secret Wars comic for a Marvel Fanfare. Obviously the person who took this back was asleep at the wheel.

Been wanting to just lay about and do nothing like this little dude up here, but there's much to do!

Toy Street 2011

Wow, I've never had 8 hours go by so quickly for me!
Toy Street was pretty successful and it was great to meet people in the toy/ art community.
I won't bore you with many details, so on with the pics!

I'm gonna start with the table I was at, Toy Dungeon Studios. Our table was full of zipper pull/ keychains of our mascot character: The Dungeon Master. We also had a few prototypes that should be released soon.

Diagonally to our left was Jesse Destasio. I really like what he has but I generally find his items to be a bit pricey. Either way I HAD to walk away with Tankopula which is a collab with Onell and Tarantulas, and is Glyos compatible.
To our right was Eric (END) of Argonaut Resins and Selina Biggs (hiding on the right in a pink hat) AKA The Jelly Empire.
Selina's Jelly Bots are super cute and often try to recruit Stormtroopers to join the Jellatic Empire!

The Cookies 'N' Cream crew had a awesome display of Jumbo Machinder/ Shogun Warriors!

They also had a set of custom Sneaker Heads which were customized by END, Sucklord, Steve Talkowski and 2 others that I can't remember. I helped to make these so it was great to see something I helped with displayed.
The Mishka NYC table manned by Lamour Supreme, a very awesome artist. They had alot of Japanese kaiju vinyl like...

these kaiju by Gargamel.
The crew from Halfbad Toyz. Awesome guys who make...

And at the end of the night a bunch of us including Big Kev went out for a nice Japanese dinner.
