Toys are all the rage. So hot right now. You like em, but so does everyone else. So how do you stay on top? Lots of lil sneakerheads are gettin down on these things, then BLAOW you smack em in the face with this giant metal robot. BAM sneakhype’s got you ahead of the game.

On January 22, Kidrobot will be putting up an exhibition in a store called Selfridges in London. They’ll be selling packs of super exclusive toys and clothes. Definitely worth checking out if you live in London or will be there next weekend. Check out Kidrobot’s website for more info. [hypebeast] More pics below.
DC is bout to drop these Graphs on Jan 23. They remind me a lot of the Bok Omni-Lites we showed you about a week ago. They’re real clean though. 2 colorways (other one after the jump). But, what’s perhaps even doper than the kicks is this crazy giant toy from UNKL. They’re making 450 packs of these goin for 260. Gotta be in San Diego for the release on the 23rd.

Who doesn’t like Obama? No one reading this super fresh online magazine… that’s for damn sure. Really though, I heard somewhere, like CNN or something that McCain got like 14 and half votes in the election. I’m not sure if I believe that though… I would’ve guessed more like 8 or 9, but anyways, show even more love for your favorite president-elect by picking up this lil guy for 15 bucks. [dailydrop] Purchase info after the link below. More Obama stuff here.
Back in 05 Kaw’s created the Warm Regards character for Beautiful Loser’s exhibition at Orange County Muesuem of Art. Well now Original Fake and Kaws hooked up to make the Warm Regards Bar. What looks like an ice cream bar is probably some kind of toy and will probably be the design for many more collaborations in the future. More pictures after the jump.[via kanyeezyuniversity]
These dudes… Coarse Toys I mean to say… have the toy design industry in a headlock. Nobody’s putting out a wider variety of ridiculously dope toys than Coarse. However, I thought the whole point of the toy industry was to mass produce the products so that everyone could enjoy them… but that certainly can’t happen when certain toys (like the sharkhead dude) retail for fifteen thousand freaking dollars. Regardless, they’re sick as can be, and you should definitely check out the gallery of pics we got after the jump. [highsnobiety]
Another awesome artist from Spain. Toy design is quickly taking over this sneakerhead/youth culture lifestyle, and I think some of this underground/custom stuff is just as good as any of the mass produced toys we’re seeing. Mar Hernandez has some great stuff, so you should check out his portfolio. Read more to see more photos.
These jump drives are awesome. Definitely cooler if you’re a chick, but I mean, I think I’m comfortable enough to rock em. The first one’s got a pineapple grenade on it. Check out ALL the different drives by clicking the Read More links. Get these things here for 20 bucks.
I just love good writing. When i see some bomb graffiti or something of the sort I just want to lick it. This tag is no exception… it’s a 3D vinyl piece that measures 40cm wide… which is like 15 inches or so. Pretty good size little piece. I want one. Quick there’s only 40 of them. Buy it here. 150 bucks. [hypebeast]
I’m lovin what they got written on them: “Eat Cheese” or “I Love Meat” and “Thug Life”. Brilliant. You won’t find these anywhere else. These are fresh from the mold, 123Klan toys. Check out the full line of new toys here. But you can check out all their products (tees, art, etc.) at 123Klan’s website.
We showed you the first picture released of the toy not too long ago, but now the toy is finally available for purchase… and with that, we’ve got some real good pictures now. You can order him from Caliroots. [via hypebeast]
We got this picture via hypebeast, the only pic on the Internet apparently of the new Hundreds “Adam Bomb” toy. Cool picture except for the rams helmet. (Big ups to Stephen Jackson though.) I really like this toy and I really like the Hundreds. No word on the release date of this product, but we will let you know when we know. That’s what we do, you know. The Hundreds site. Toy made by Medicom Toys. Check out all the Hundreds gear on Sneakhype.
Some of us in the youth-culture circles dig these completely impractical but bitchin little toys. If you are one of those in this circle that I speak of, then you’ll probably like this 9 in tall yeti that you can get along with the corresponding T shirt. Check it out. [via uncrate]
