Stuffed 3 Inch Dunny Preorder from The Angry Artist

    Raw chicken and turkey are about the grossest things on the entire planet and I refuse to touch either.  I won't even touch it while it's safely wrapped in the package, that's how much I hate it.  I love it once it's cooked, but until that point I want to have absolutely no interaction with it.  If you have a venomous snake loose in your house, or if you need a someone to take a look at the dead thing you found feel free to call me.  But if your problem involves uncooked poultry I am not the man for the job and I feel no shame in telling you so.  

   The above paragraph has probably done its job in letting you know that I am no expert when it comes to preparing a bird, but I'm pretty sure I've never seen anyone season a turkey like this.  I haven't watched the Food Network in some time and it may be a new technique, but I feel comfortable in stating that there has to be a better way.  The Angry Artist has opened up preorders now for a run of custom Dunny's that have gotten a little too involved in the Thanksgiving festivities. There's always one in every family who just takes things over the edge (I'm looking at you, Uncle Ted).  They're limited to only 10 pieces and available for preorder right now at  

Vinyl Kittypillar Preorders from Casey Weldon x 3A

    I find it rather impossible to successfully clip my cat's nails and then I take them to the vet and the girls there are like the Lebron James of kitty claws and practically do it with their eyes closed.  Big chunks of talons go flying in the air and I can be nothing but impressed because I only manage to get a teensy bit clipped before they freak out and try to main me. Then they inevitably proceed to go to the stair or the couch and demonstrate how ineffective a job I did.  Little sociopaths. 

    Thank goodness Kittypillars aren't real, because for one I would need a house full and for two, that's a lot of extra nails to render your belongings worthless.  This toy is based on a series of paintings by Casey Weldon and has been brought into plastic being by 3A.  I saw the prototype at New York Comic Con and it is a thing of beauty to say the least.  There are two different versions up for preorder right now at and for $89 each they include free world wide shipping.  That's a damn bargain for something that will make you smile every time you look at it.  You sure can't say that about much.

The Backpack from Alex Pardee X Mighty Jaxx

    I have a cat named Jorah who likes to pounce on you and ride around on your shoulders when you aren't paying attention.  If you're lucky he jumps from somewhere high and lands squarely and sure footed.  If you're less lucky he will scale the back of your legs until he reaches his destination, leaving you with a trail of seeping claw marks along the way.  Sometimes I wonder if he sees himself as an evil genius a la Krang and I am just his monkey that he uses to do his bidding because I am taller and can reach the stuff he wants.  Sometimes I wonder if I overthink things.

    At least Jorah has never looked like he was going to bite my skull cap off.  Not like I would know anyway because we don't have room on our walls for silly things like mirrors, but this duo from Alex Pardee and Mighty Jaxx really puts his antics into perspective.  And their symbiotic relationship is still healthier than anything that's ever been on Dr. Phil.  Only 200 of these best pals were made and they are available right now for $120 at

1/6th Scale Michael Myers Figure from threezero

    Look, it's everyone's favorite murderous mute Mr. Michael Myers!  That was some crazy alliteration there, even by my standards.   I always dug the original Halloween and I liked the Rob Zombie versions too because they seemed plausible and that's what makes them scary.  Well, plausible in the fact that the dude escaped a mental institution and wants to kill all of his relatives, not so much in the fact that he can take six bullets to the chest and be totally cool with it.  You can only suspend disbelief to a certain point.  

   Not since William Shatner has anyone made a William Shatner mask look so frightening though, and threezero perfectly capture that in their latest 1/6th scale figure.  Look at those dead eyes staring right through you.  It's freaky.  And he comes with fun stabbing accessories which I'm sure you could put to good use on your sister's old Barbie collection.  Preorder him right now from for $150 US dollars and get free shipping!  Just make sure you're alone when you open the box in case you scream cause I wouldn't want you to have to live with that shame the rest of your life.  

Halloween Honoo Cutie DX from Leecifer

    I have some advice from my youth for all you pyromaniacs out there:  don't stand too close to an open flame when you've just discovered grunge and insist on only wearing jeans that you strategically ripped.  See, cotton burns quick, and no matter how awesome those frayed knee holes are, you don't look like Eddie Vedder when you have to tear them from your body to prevent a stay in the burn ward.  And surprisingly, your teenage crush won't be sympathetic as you dance around in your tighty whiteys trying to stomp out the flames.  I've said too much.

     Honoo would never do you dirty like that though, cause while he may be his own disco inferno, he's always got your back.  This happy resin campfire from Leecifer is available right now in  limited edition of 10 pieces by visiting  Add some heat to your toy shelf without the risk of a four alarm disaster.

"Hallowroot" Edition Mandrake Root from Doktor A x Toy Art Gallery

    The real mandrake root that this toy is based on is shaped like a little person and will supposedly make you trip until that band Phish is listenable.  I don't know why anyone would want to lose control to the point they're enjoying jam bands and I sure as hell wouldn't eat some human shaped yam for dinner, so the mandrake root really has no place in my life.  Plus, they don't sell it at Wal-Mart so I wouldn't even know where to get one.

    Halloween is the best time for toy releases because everything is guaranteed to be in a color scheme I like.  For example, this toy right here from Doktor A and Toy Art Gallery.  He's decked out in a perfect paint application for the season and he even comes with a little friend to do his bidding/grocery shopping.  What does an evil yam buy at the grocery store anyway?  Root shaped people?  Did this just turn into a Twilight Zone episode?  And speaking of the Twilight Zone, how come every time they air one of those marathons I only see the same ones over and over again?  There's a trillion episodes and no matter when I turn it on it's William Shatner freaking out on the plane because there's a diseased monkey on the wing.  Am I in the Twilight Zone while watching the Twilight Zone?  It makes my head hurt just thinking about it.

    You can pick this guy up beginning Friday, October 28th at noon pacific time from

Halloween Tumble Tops from Inami Toys

    You could go out the day before Halloween on Devil's Night and release all your suburban aggression by hitting mailboxes with baseball bats or throwing perfectly good toilet paper into people's trees.  Or you could take the civilized route and stay home with your heathen friends, talk about whatever you're currently watching on the old tv (I hope it's Westworld) and play some parlor games that invoke simpler; less Purge-like times.  Enter Tumble Tops.  That was sooooo smooth you might of thought I was Billy Dee Williams. I get that a lot.

    Inami Toys has returned with his resin rock, paper, scissors game pieces that you can use with your friends or by yourself if you're more of a recluse.  They come blind bagged and feature three different designs with special marbled chase pieces mixed in.  Pick a few up when they go on sale today, October 27th at 9pm eastern time from

Monoghost Maroon Marauder from Super7

    At first I thought this dude was a "Moonghost" and I was thinking how that would be the most boring place anywhere to be a ghost.  There hasn't been anyone to haunt for decades and there's absolutely nothing to do but sift through the dust for treasure that isn't there.  The only worse place to haunt would be those steam rooms where gross dudes sit around in towels and complain about their tax incentives or whatever sweaty rich people talk about.  At that point who's haunting who, am I right?

    Ok, so this is actually a "Monoghost" and as you can see his looks make me think he still could be some sort of alien spectre.  You can quiz him about life on the other side yourself when he's made available from Super7 today, Wednesday October 26th, at noon pacific time.  Get him at

Becky 23 from The Sucklord

    I don't know how people do the whole on line dating thing because anyone with any form of social media sees just how people manipulate their photos to look completely different.  Whether it's using extreme angles or downright Photoshopping unflattering areas, no one ever looks in person how they do on the internet.  The best is when someone you know in real life friend requests you and you can see their foul witchcraft first hand.  You know your coworker looks like a Kardashian (still yuck) on line but like The Iron Sheik in person.

    The Sucklord is always in the moment with his new releases, and he has captured that trickery with his latest figure, Becky 23.  She thinks she's from the Land of Coachella but in reality she looks like she just crawled from a cave in Land of the Lost.  Her old Sleestak face won't stop her from being uber picky and judgmental about her potential suitors though.  You gotta moisturize that reptile skin, boo boo if you're gonna keep such high standards.  Pick her up now from, but make sure you have plenty of pumpkin spice in case she gets cranky.  That stuff is like a tranquilizer dart for girls like this.

Breadcat Open Editions from Rato Kim

    I had a dream last night that Sharon and I had moved to New York and had this killer penthouse apartment with an indoor pool and all our cats were there just chillin and being rich.  But my black cat Icarus had made friends with a mouse and then fallen in love with her, only the mouse had a cat head instead of a regular mouse one (the cat head was to scale though so she didn't look like a mutant).  And somehow he and this mouse temptress would leave everyday and have adventures in the city and we'd only learn what he was up to based on his Instagram posts.  We had to sit him down and tell him about our concerns of him leaving the house and eventually the cat-headed mouse moved  in and we were back to being rich and chill with our indoor pool.  I swear there is something weird in that tea we bought from the Asian super market.

    Rato Kim has taken the resin world by storm with her Breadcat creation, and she's meeting the demand by creating a few made to order versions for needy collectors.  Choose from the tasty looking  Peachcat or get a bit outdoorsy with Woodcat and wrestle a bear or something.  Or you can go for the original that started it all with four different faces to choose from.  Add em to your collection by visiting her Etsy shop at this link.  


Lottery Info for Paul Kaiju's Latest Hyper Kraken

    You know what you could do with an hour of your time?  You could be watching Westworld on HBO, which is like if Philip K. Dick had written Deadwood.  It's so good that you could just watch the opening credits and feel like you've just witnessed something magical.  Sharon and I marathoned the first three episodes and are now going through withdrawals waiting for the fourth.  The first episode was so good that the entire show could have ended there and you wouldn't have been upset.  You would have wanted more, but they packed so much story into it that it could have stood alone as a great art film.  Just go watch it and thank me later.  But finish reading this post first because that would be the polite thing to do.

    This toy is rooted more in the aquatic world of Jules Verne than science fiction, but that doesn't make me love it any less.  Paul Kaiju's Hyper Kraken is returning in the incarnation you see above and will be part of a lottery system this Sunday with an extremely limited window.  Beginning October  23rd at 6pm pacific time and lasting for only one hour, you will have the chance to enter via to be able to purchase this magnificent figure.  Cancel your plans, take your vitamins, and say your prayers and maybe you will be lucky enough to own one of these.

A Unique Lottery from Lulubell Toys for Cure's Halloween Boogieman

    I get why people do lotteries for toys:  you have a little bit of product versus a lot of people that want to own it.  So you're leveling the playing field for everyone and you're able to take known flippers and ignore them like the turd bags they are.  They're all pretty much the same though in that you email your information and do a lot of praying that you win.  That's kind of boring.  So Lulubell Toys is gonna spice it up a bit and make you do a little bit of work as well.

    The toy up for grabs is the very seasonal Cure Boogeyman and Gee combo you see above and like I said the way to enter is not typical.  You have to take a photo that spells out the word CURE.   Then you do this:

1. Easiest way: post your photo to IG, hashtag #lulubellcurelottery and @lulubell_toys & @cure_uo ! Done.

2. If you do not have IG, email your photo to, along with your name, shipping address and PayPal email address & we will post your entry to IG for you!

    See, isn't that better than the same old way of doing things?  Unleash your inner Annie Leibovitz and impress the world with your creativity.

Halloween Pocket Pork Dumplings from Shawnimals x Squibbles Ink x myplasticheart

     My wife's cast iron stomach is the type of thing they make up folk tales about, but I don't know if she would even eat mummified pork dumplings.  Not that I would rule it out entirely either, because there have been times when we've travelled down roads that were only on forest service maps and not even GPS could find us that she probably would have considered it.  A month ago we were traversing through the Idaho back country (which is pretty much the entire state) and it was hours past our lunch time.  We were trying to see a bear in the wild because I have never seen one outside of a zoo and I have this idea that it would be some magical experience when in all likelihood I would be telling you a story about how the thing ended up carjacking us and we had to hitch a ride back with some sketchy fisherman who wouldn't stop commenting on how purty I was.  We didn't find a bear, but she was kind of lamenting the fact that we didn't try and cook the two dead salmon we saw in the river.  I was even hungry enough that I didn't think it was the worst idea I had ever heard.  

    You won't have to worry about intestinal worms with these aged pork dumplings though because their ability to brighten up your collection far exceeds their nutritional benefits.  These delightful creations from Shawnimals, Squibbles Ink, and myplasticheart are available now in blind boxed form and feature two different styles to obtain.  If you're like me and need them both don't worry, because if you buy two they guarantee you'll get one of each.  And they glow in the dark, which is an added bonus if you are stuck on a lonely dirt road and nightfall approaches.  Pick them up now at this link.  

"Old One" Fiberglass Cthulhu Sculpture from Colin Christian

     Is anyone watching the Presidential debates and just wishing that the idiot moderator would receive urgent news that Cthulhu has finally risen from the depths to put us all out of our misery?  Seriously, I feel like I'm on some bad reality show with this nonsense and if this isn't a pilot for NBC then maybe as humans we have just over stayed our welcome.  So I implore you to vote for the only candidate that makes sense; the one who's agenda is not paid for by big business and who respects all people no matter their race, creed, or credit score because as far as he's concerned we all make the same crunching sound when trampled on:

    That is really the extent of my involvement in politics, so let us move on.  Colin Christian has immortalized our future world leader in this stunning fiberglass sculpture that is ready to (possibly) protect you when the oceans swell and his minions are set upon us.  Hey, it might save you from getting eaten, you never know until you try.    

    There's two different versions with the first featuring a black finish and the second adding some metal flake to spice it up a bit.  These are extremely affordable and available right now by visiting

Demonic Donny Resin Figure from Monsterpants

    And you thought you had some bad jobs in your life.  Could you imagine having the actual devil as your boss?  Good luck trying to update your Facebook status in the bathroom, or stealing office supplies for your at home craft projects.  Dude runs a tighter ship than a dolphin's butt and one that smells equally of digested fish.  Speaking of which (not butts, you freak, bad people to work for) Sharon and I were riding the train home from Comic Con and the dude across from us was watching footage of the employees of his restaurant on a tablet.  He was spying on the cooks, the wait staff, even zooming in on the diners as they ate.  That's the type of stuff you have to do when nobody respects you or realizes you're a licensed gun owner.  There's too much good tv on to be worrying about whether or not someone is trying to sell the cooking wine to the sketchy dude that hangs out back.  

    Monsterpants has amped up his resin productivity and has another new release waiting for you in the form of Demonic Donny.  He's doing the devil's bidding whether he likes it or not and if you were to ask him his job satisfaction is through the roof!  And it's still a better gig than working with children.  

    Add this employee of the month to your collection by visiting this link.  

One-Off Pumpkin Rage Daigomi Lottery from Guumon

    As toy collectors we all want that rare figure to make everyone else jealous that we alone have it.  To have in our possession the one thing that will make people bombard you with emails of cash and trade offers that you just brush away like the pathetic beggars they are, because you are the king, you hold the power to decide their happiness or misery and you will wield it like the sicko you are!!!  Bwahahahahahahahahahaha! 

    Maybe you're a little more mature about it, I dunno, but I'm not here to judge.  All I know is that you need this amazing Pumpkin Rage Daigomi from Guumon in your life.  There's only one of them in the entire world, which makes it as rare as anything can be unless somehow we figure out how to own things that haven't even been thought of yet.  Which if you've got some cash laying around I've got some killer ideas I'd be happy to sell you and in turn I would promise to never make them so you have the exclusive ownership of that thought.  Let the bidding wars begin!!!

    All you need to enter this lottery is stated at the bottom of the picture and you only have until the 20th to get your name in.  Do it and let it set the tone for the rest of your day.

The Unbox Industries Halloween Emporium Opens Today!!!!!

    Halloween is coming and for most people that means heading out to the store to buy decorations or digging a musty old box out of the attic that you only see once a year in order to bring the spirit of the holiday into your home.  I have no need of either because my entire home looks like Elvira was hired to design Pee Wee's Playhouse.  Every day passes for Halloween where I live, and there's no better way to keep that aesthetic year round than with some new toys to display.  

    Unbox Industries is opening their Halloween Emporium today at 6pm eastern time and will feature some brand new versions of some of the most twisted things they've ever produced.  Take a gander at what will be available and dig up the receipt for that boring junk you already bought to scare the neighbor kids.

Blown Away DTA Rainbow Dunnys from Josh Mayhem

   I didn't win a trophy last weekend and neither did Josh Mayhem but we're not shook about it.  We're just two bros with no trophies and no worries cause guess what: trophies do nothing but add work to your life.  It's an extra thing to pack if you ever move, and your home owners insurance will probably go up in case someone steals it, and your family is gonna try and borrow money from you cause trophies make people think you're cashed up.  And you know what, if you have a trophy then you can't join our No Trophy Bro gang or be invited to the ice cream social/bowling excursion.  You're gonna really be jealous when you see the baller shirts we got to commemorate the day.

    It was cool to be a finalist though and to celebrate Josh has created a limited run of 6 Blown Away 3 inch Dunnys that pay homage to his nominated design.  These will be priced at $125 each when they go on sale today (Wednesday, October 12) at 10am pacific time from

Super7's NYCC Exclusives Are Available Online Now

    Somehow I have resisted the urge to put these micro Mummy Boy and Rose Vampire toys in my nose.  They are the perfect size to just shove right up there if you were so inclined, but again, I have not done it.  If you want to though, and weren't able to attend New York Comic Con, Super7 is making it easier because these and their other remaining exclusives are available right now.  Just check out and in no time you could be sitting in the emergency room waiting for them to extract one of these from your nostrils.  How you explain it to them is all up to you.

First Look: Kidrobot's Upcoming Madballs Collection

   Madballs are back, suckas!  Well, almost, cause they don't come out until the end of the year, but anyone who was at New York Comic Con got to see Kidrobot's upcoming release of this classic series.  Utilizing the original designs from toy wizard James Groman (who I was told designed the Kidrobot mascot version you see above) these are faithful to the originals while offering up some different incarnations for modern collectors. 

    Of course the well remembered foam versions will be available so you can throw them at each other without significant risk of injury to people and property, or so you can easily replace the one you used to have that was ingested by your childhood dog.  

    The mascot and Horn Head will be available as larger sized vinyl figures, complete with stands so they're easy to display without you having to rearrange your current setup.  The other cool thing about them is they sit kind of high so you'll have plenty of room to surround them with:

    The Madball mini series figures!  There's a whole bunch of these to collect and they will be sold blind boxed style.  All of them looked amazing and brought back memories of seeing them in Toys R Us and desperately wanting every one of them because of how gross and weird they were.  Not much has changed since then I suppose. 

     See more pictures of these and other stuff from Comic Con by visiting  

Post New York Comic Con 2016 Wrap Up

    Another New York Comic Con has come and gone and nothing could sum it up more perfectly than this picture.  For one, my wife's face perfectly depicts how she felt about the things I bought (she has grown to love the Cinema Monster from Splurrt).  And she also spent a lot of time waiting outside of bathrooms as I tried passing a kidney stone for two days (of which I was successful on the second).  Here are my thoughts about this year's version of the convention:

1.)  This is the first time I've ever waited in a line that was wrapped around an entire city block.  It wasn't unpleasant though, cause it moved rather quickly and the faces of the people that were part of the SECOND coil around the building really put our situation into perspective.  Literally, the line to get in wrapped around twice.  

2.)  I was able to get everything I wanted and then some, which is easier to do when you cut your want list down to just a few things.  Sharon is pictured with my major score of the convention, which I still can't get her to kiss on the lips.  For some reason, she doesn't like fun.

3.)  Twelve year old me lost his mind when I got to meet Ric Flair and Animal from The Road Warriors.  I resisted all urges to yell "Wooooooooo" unlike everyone else who passed by.  Instead, I just acted awkward, which I've determined is my finishing move should I ever become a professional wrestler.

4.)  I used the restroom at the Javitts Center more on the second day than I have collectively in the years I've been going to Comic Con.  I also lost more blood than I ever had in the most inglorious fashion.  But I feel pretty good that somewhere in the sewers there's a rat that found my kidney stone and has added it to his pile of treasures, possibly worshiping it as a gift from his rodent deity. You're welcome, little dude.

5.)  New York smells weird.  Not like bad weird, unless you pass over one of those steaming grates that smell like someone is deep frying excrement.  Or if you step in one of those puddles that seem to hang around even if it hasn't rained in a while and they're a strange color and pretty much force you to buy new shoes.  That's bad weird.

6.)  It may just be me getting old, but I don't know how people make it through all four days.  I went for two and was ready to stop at the emergency room on the way home (and not just because of the blood pee).  I think next year I may get a gym membership and get swole before we go so my muscles don't feel like they hate me.

7.)  Dunkin Donuts is my favorite food group.  I probably shouldn't have put this right next to the one about being out of shape.  

8.)  I got to meet lots of cool folks that I've known for a long time on the internet but never met in person.  I won't mention them in case they didn't actually get permission from their parole officers to be there.  I don't snitch.

    That pretty much sums up my Comic Con experience.  If you'd like to see pictures of all the really cool stuff I saw you can do that by heading over to

Post NYCC Suck Salon with the Sucklord

   I could only go to New York Comic Con for two days, which is plenty for me because I felt like I was training to become a cage fighter by the end.  How do people make it through all four days?  My legs hurt, my mind is completely overloaded by all there is to see, and I crave the normalcy of cleaning litter boxes and wanting to kill myself while working with the public.  Familiarity is the meat of the hamburger of life.

   I met the Sucklord at Comic Con and he told me about this shindig he was throwing that is gonna involve adult beverages, and toys, and probably some pictures you won't be able to post on any but you're most secretive of social media.  And you can buy stuff, which is the best kinda party there is.  Think about when your mom used to go to Tupperware parties and she would be all turnt up and let you stay up to watch Nick at Nite until she came home and the babysitter was mad cute in a "Who's the Boss" era Alyssa Milano type of way and you would try to do stunts to impress her cause you think that's how you get a wife?

 It's not like that at all. 

    Tons of stuff will be for sale, and by tons I mean anything you can get on the subway or in a cab or an Uber.  Cash is king and you can be too with all your new Suckadelic stuff.  The details are in the photo, so you should go and create memories that will last a lifetime/until you sober up.

Art Toy Gama Presents a Japanese Horror Inspired Art Toy Exhibition

    Japanese horror films are some of the most messed up/creative movies you will ever see.  While American horror has kind of been stuck on the idea of some creature or another systematically disposing of teenagers (which let's face it, teenagers are the worst) those being produced in Japan mix a heavy dose of the psychological with the supernatural with the at times plain disturbing, for a refreshing take on what can be a stale genre.

    Art Toy Gama has put together an art toy exhibition to coincide with the 27th annual Horror and Fantasy Film Festival in San Sebastian, Spain featuring works from all over the world.  It will be taking place this weekend through the first week of November at Arteuparte, which is located in the larger Tabakeler Center for Culture and Contemporary Art.  If you can't make it in person you can check out the work that will be on display at this link.
