This is pretty dope, but it would be a lot better if the Batman action figure were included. This collectible item is available for pre-order now. It’s going to set you back a bit at $358.
What does Darth Vader do when he’s not swinging his lightsaber around? He grabs his board and snags a few waves at his local point break like any Sith Lord bro brah. This Vader Vacation figurine was designed by Abell Octovan and with only 8 in existence at $130 a pop they might be harder to get a hold of than Princess Leia’s buns.
Crazy dope new toys from Medicom. Called the “Black on black”, Mickey Mouse as the subject, can’t get much better. Look for these to drop sometime in February of ’11. There’s three different finishes they will be released in. Tone on tone, matte, and gloss. More looks after the jump.
Medicom Toy hooked up with Disney/Pixar for their latest collab for the Buzz Lightyear and Woody BearBricks. These toys may provoke me to revisit my childhood and get back into action figures… probably not, but they are still definitely dope. These will drop in August to go along with the release of the new Toy Story 3 (which hits theaters June 18th).
I have kind of fallen off the “art toy” bandwagon, but this little dude is pretty sweet. If you’re into this sort of thing, you can buy him and take a closer look here. If you’re not into this sort of thing, you’ll probably just want to scroll down.
I am going to buy 3 of these and put them in my fish tank. Actually, I probably won’t… but that would be sick. My fish tank’s dopeness is already unparalleled. But Kidrobot vinyl would just put it over the top. They’re only 5 bucks a pop. Cute little shitters, aren’t they? You can pick them up here at the Kidrobot store.
Check this out. Taco Bizell is now issuing these urban vinyl “Bellhedz” in their kids’ meals. Pretty tight really, but Kidrobot’s saying they’re getting ripped off. In fact, there was a protest rally in NYC today where Kidrobot handed out thousands of vinyls. There’s a pretty funny mockery of the Taco Bell ad after the jump. Check it:
Italian artist Filippo Perin is in a league of his own with his papertoys. Excuse my fruitiness, but his paper Air Yeezy’s are just about the cutest lil F-in things I’ve seen in while. This new project, called “MIKE”, is one that he did exclusively for a NSW temporary shop in Rome. They’re little dudes with shoebox heads and fresh kicks — kinda like the Sneakhype crew (minus the “little” part… we be beasts of men.)
Perhaps the dopest toy designers out there, Coarsetoys, have just come out with a new version of their iconic Paw! toy. I actually like their earlier versions a lot better, but the three new colorways are lookin quite fly in their candypaint as well. One for $150, all three for $400. Gotta be in San Diego this Thursday thru Sunday to get them though. Check out these images after the jump… the packaging design rivals the actual toy in coolness:
Take a look at a preview of Micheal Lau’s Godfather collection alongside Mindstyle. The collection includes a marionette of Don Vito Corleone and many other notable characters from the Godfather movies. Expect a July 2009 release date. [hypebeast]
