MagneBricks Building Blocks on Kickstarter

by
MagneBricks Building Blocks
Magnebricks are innovative building blocks featuring powerful magnets and interlocking features for creative play with a fun "click"!

Each 22x44mm brick contains 10 of the most powerful rare earth magnets (Neodymium Grade 52) that we could fit inside each of the 10 facets.  What makes Magnebricks special as an activity for kids is that each brick has male and female interlocking features allowing for building along all 3 Axis in both full and half-brick steps.  The interlocking features not only help to strengthen the connection, but also make it easy to know which faces will attract.  We have taken the best of the traditional plastic building bricks we’re all familiar with and added the magical magnetic attraction that kids (and adults) love. In addition to building in 2D and 3D on your desk, you can even play a building blocks game on your refrigerator (or many other metallic surfaces) for even more creative play!



MagneBricks are also great for children, adults, and the elderly who may not have the manual dexterity required of other building blocks such as Lego.  They can be used for Occupational Therapy for special needs such as Autism and developmental delays since they automatically pull together and interlock when near each other.


I'm a backer! I'm gonna send my MagneBricks to my niece and nephew on the West coast.

Click here to read more, and to back the Kickstarter to bring this fun toy project to life!

Herowiz.com Relaunch Featuring Original Marvel Animation Line Art

by
Herowiz.com website homepage
I just reconnected with an old buddy who is relaunching his Marvel collectible site Herowiz.com. This website, a family-run business, is focused on the sale of Marvel artwork, lithographs, giclees, toys, collectibles and caps- all Marvel, all the time. The HeroWiz site has been completely redesigned for a better user experience. A screen shot is above- pretty tight web design!

HeroWiz just received almost 3 million pages of animation line art direct from Marvel. They are currently hard at work going through the artwork to catalog and photograph what they have, and it will be up for sale soon. Below is a list of the animated series from which this line art came:
  • Fantastic Four: Worlds Greatest Heroes
  • Wolverine and the X-Men Animated Series 
  • Ultimate Spiderman Animated Series
  • Doctor Strange: The Sorcerer Supreme Animated feature film
An example of the artwork is below (a Super Skrull illustration):
Marvel Super Skrull line art

If you are looking for big, awesome, hand-drawn Marvel sketches- 100% unique pieces of artwork that you can frame and display in your home- look no further than my friends at Herowiz. To help them promote the relaunch, we will be orchestrating a tag-team promotional giveaway contest soon! Stay tuned.

Robocop ED-209 Action Figure with sound by NECA

by
NECA is rolling out a movie-accurate, highly-articulated 10" action figure of the ED-209 robot from Robocop, to scale with the 7" Robocop action figures previously released. This figure looks sick! Features sound bites from the movie. Apparently they are running one production run only. Expect to pay about $70-ish at your favorite retailer for this one. Please let us know if you're interested... to be honest, we're a small shop so we often can't compete on price with the big retailers, but if there's enough interest, we'll place an order.

VISEone Zombie Goo vinyl figure revealed, will be released at our NYCC booth

by
VISEone Zombie Goo 8-inch vinyl figure
From the VISEone newsletter:

"First prototype images of my upcoming vinyltoy release "ZOMBIE GOO"
Yesterday I posted an image of the prototype on my FACEBOOK page - today I fully reveal what's my upcoming vinyltoy release called ZOMBIE GOO.

Before we continue with the TUBE MONSTER series I decided to be part of the worldwide Zombie Apocalyse.
 

So I stepped deep down into my lab and created some "ZOMBIE GOO" put it into a tube so whenever you want you can squeeze out your own little ZOMBIE.

But squeeze carefully!
While squeezing - be aware that the zombie could grab your head and rip out your brain - you've been warned!!!"

ZOMBIE GOO is another cooperation between VISEone & Flying LuLu. It will be approx. 8" in height. We are planning several colorways which will be revealed during this summer. Edition size is not set yet.

I will release ZOMBIE GOO at NYCC 2013 at TENACIOUS COLLECTIVE BOOTH #208
 

But while I'm there I would also be interested in a customshow/release party...
so if any gallery or store is interested in holding a release party/custom show - please contact me!"

News from SoKo Cat...

SoKo Cat here!  I just wanted to let you know that my magnets from Dream in Plastic's Custom Toy Show are available for sale on their website.  They can be found at http://www.dreaminplastic.com/monster-magnets-series-2-soko-cat.htm

This set of six Monster Magnets (series 2) was cast in gray resin, sculpted, cast and molded by the very talented Argonaut Resins.  SoKo Cat has brought each of these amazing characters (Vampyr, FrankenHulk, WereDude, Demon, Phantom and Warlock) to life with her remarkable painting talent.  Each creature has been highlighted (no pun intended) in their own unique way, resulting in wonderful characters as a part of an extraordinary collection.
The set is available for purchase at the show for $200.  They may also be sold individually for $40 each.

Dream in Plastic's Custom Toy Show will run from June 8 to July 12 at their shop (177 Main Street, Beacon, N.Y. 12508).
