3D printing blows my mind and it seems like everyday someone is finding a new use for it. The other day I read about this thing they can put around your heart and make it beat forever. We're THIS CLOSE to technology advancing so far that it causes the zombie apocalypse and all those people with bunkers and 20 years worth of canned goods in their backyards are actually seen as being reasonable.

There are many moments I can look back on and pinpoint as those in which I knew I would marry my wife Sharon. Like the fact that one of our first dates was spent gawking at the medical specimens that fill the Mutter Museum. We fell in love amongst the wax models of syphilis and the eerie, cheshire grins of fetal skeletons. But one thing I've never been a big fan of are the wet specimens; those floppy bits of tissue suspended in preserving solution. I just imagine them breaking open and the only recourse being to burn everything that the gross liquid touches. This goes double for the weird babies in jars, who sometimes bother me and other times I can look at with interest. It really just depends on the mood I'm in when we happen to be at the museum.
I feel much the same about these Autopsy Babies from Miscreation Toys. Some days they look interesting, others I just want to yell "KILL IT WITH FIRE". Bizarre wouldn't even begin to describe them. But if you're looking for a good time and the idea of plastic corpses tickles your fancy then may I suggest a trip to Toy Art Gallery this Saturday (March 8th) for their custom show featuring these little rotten tots. The opening reception is from 7-10pm.
I would like to put forth a motion that all demon heads from now own be constructed of nekkid ladies. And being that I am a cruel and evil dictator in my own little mind, the motion passes and is therefore law. Anyone caught breaking the law will be condemned to cleaning all of the litter boxes in my house for the rest of their natural lives and longer if my amateur necromancy classes actually pay off. I will raise your heathen butt from the dead in the name of a fresh smelling house, don't think I won't!
I've shown you these Lilith figures from Death Cat Toys before, but never like this. You see, they enlisted the talents of DuBose Art to create these marbled resin editions that are beyond stunning. Only a few are left for you to purchase so you need to head over to http://Deathcattoys.bigcartel.com/ and snag one before they're gone.

This dude does not look like he's down to negotiate. If you were out in the desert trying to find yourself before you went off to college and you see something like this you can kiss your dreams of academic achievement and frat parties goodbye. This guy wants to take your soul and put it in a used jelly jar in his basement. Then he'll probably decorate his house with your bones to impress the ladies. Whose souls he will also take, but that's besides the point. This is one bad looking dude.
Jesse Hernandez and Kuso Vinyl created the original Death Serpent figure but evidently decided he didn't look nearly menacing enough. So they enlisted the help of Hydro74 to sprinkle some extra evil on him and this is the result. This ghost edition of the figure is limited to 150 pieces and an exclusive to Kidrobot. If you're lucky enough to live in the San Francisco area you can hang out with Jesse and get this toy on Saturday when he does a signing at the Kidrobot store there. All the info you need is in the picture. I do warn you though, that the rest of your toys may feel slightly inadequate next to this guy.
You know what I'm sick of? Winter. Are we on that Game of Thrones 8 year long Winter cycle? It wouldn't be as bad if it would just stop snowing. I really could do without the constant reminders of how out of shape I am and how I will never be a wrestler in the WWE. Winter is the crusher of dreams.
These dudes from Cometdebris remind me of warmer weather, with their bright colors and smiling faces. And I deserve a treat for freeing our vehicles from their icy tombs. On multiple occasions.
All three of these guys will be available this Saturday, March 8th, at 8pm Pacific time from http://www.cometdebris.com/.

Tomorrow is Fat Tuesday, which you could spend getting blackout drunk and showing your knick-knacks to strangers for cheap beads, or you could instead buy toys and stay out of our prison system. Decisions, decisions.
Kidrobot is releasing their newest Dunny Series tomorrow featuring the work of Andrew Bell and Scribe. Go out, get some blind boxes, and stay in the comfort of your own home where the police are less likely to show up because of your stupid behavior. Trust me, I'm an expert on clandestine stupid behavior.

Options. We all love them. Sometimes we love them too much and that puts us into a financial bind because we can't just choose one of something when every option is equally as appealing. Luckily for you, these S.U.C.K.L.E. sets are inexpensive so you won't have too much guilt after you buy them all. Toy Art Gallery has the clear red ones and Suburban Vinyl has the clear green. For $20 a can you can't go wrong!!
