The Custom Toy Union just contacted us and let us know that their Assassins Series 2 will be dropping in late August! This series will feature 2.5" Qees (of various head types) as they have partnered with Toy2R USA on this project.

Ardabus Rubber * B.A.L.D. * Fried Gold Productions * Fuller Designs * Hugh Rose * Jay222 * Matcandraw * The Model Maker * Mr. Munk * Rocketboy * Rsin * TyleR

Each custom will come in header card packaging designed by Fuller Designs and will include a collectible Assassins 2 postcard. All customs will have a chance to win a
customized 8" Qee by B.A.L.D. via a Golden Ticket (randomly placed in one package).

The series will be released for general sale on August 28th 2011 @ 12pm PST, but a pre-order is up now for the series.

Kollectible Kulture Fundraiser for Susan G. Komen

by


Kollectible Kulture has set up an ONLINE STORE where there is the option to purchase a fundraiser entry. Each entry is only $5.00. Think about how small of a donation that really is.... putting it in perspective... you are donating $5.00 to help fight breast cancer and you could walk away with a prize! You can purchase as many entries as you want, the more the merrier.

 KK will be keeping track of how many you purchase and will be putting your name in a jar, old-fashioned style. Once they are ready to hold the actual drawing (beginning of September), they will chose a prize then draw a name. The name associated with that prize is the winner. Simple, right?

Mini Kaiju Cupcake Blind Box Custom Series drops tomorrow

by
Announcing the impending release of a Tenacious Toys x Rampage Toys blind box custom series collaboration: Mini Kaiju Cupcakes!

We have been collaborating with Jon Malmstedt and Rampage Toys for a while now on various endeavors. Jon pours these great little 2-inch Mini Kaiju Cupcakes in resin and at first he was painting them himself. Then he tossed the idea at me for a blind box custom series based on this platform, and I was game!

We decided to go with a 25-piece series and 5 different artists (one of which is Jon). Jon picked another artist (Justin Hillgrove of Imps and Monsters) and left it to me to pick the other 3. I chose NREAZON from Texas, Nasty Neil (iwillnotbeawastedtalent) who's now from NY, and OsirisOrion from CT. 5 blanks went to each artist.
You can see more images here.

Series details:
• 25 blind-boxed pieces in the series
• Release date: Wednesday June 22nd at 7PM EST
• Golden ticket gets a lucky winner a 5x7" original painting by Jon Malmstedt
• $35 per blind box 

This series will go live Wednesday evening in our Exclusives section here.

Techno Kitten Adventure: the figure!

by

You might recognize the completely insane Techno Kitten Adventure (an iPhone app that's a $0.99 purchase from the iTunes store, and also available for the XBOX), created by Elite Gudz out on Long Island... but did you know that one of the games creators, Den Ramos, also casted the titular character into a figure in the Elite Gudz toy lab? Check the video. Den's a wizard. Soundtrack makes me want to break out the glowsticks and UFO pants again...
