Vintage Edition TEQ63 Exclusive from Quiccs x Martian Toys x Tenacious Toys

    Do Quiccs collectors have second jobs just to pay for his figures?  There are seriously new ones coming out every week and I don't know how anyone keeps up with it financially.  I often wonder what people do for a living, one because I'm nosey, and two because I want to know if you're hiring. My idea of networking involves meeting someone, having them tell me I'd be perfect for this opening they have at their place of employment, and have said job pay me $100,000 with no experience.  Here is my resume in case you want to give me money:

- I'm funny and really good at doing impressions of people I work with and customers

- I have an extensive knowledge of the history of professional wrestling

- I will fight you

- I've been to a Dukes of Hazard museum

- I'm not scared of snakes

- King Diamond is my godfather (not really, but could you imagine?)

     If I sound like the employee of your dreams please hit me up.  But not if you don't offer a 401k, cause this isn't Soviet Russia.

     Out of all the TEQ63 that Quiccs has released with Martian Toys I'm going to go ahead and declare this one my favorite.  I'm a sucker for this vintage color scheme and if you like it as much as I do you better be ready this Friday, August 2 when it goes on sale at noon eastern time. This edition of 150 figures is an exclusive to Tenacious Toys which means they have all of them at their secret lair in Area 51.  Since they're nice people, you won't need to storm it and risk getting blown up by the military.  Just visit at the previously mentioned time to secure one for yourself.

Blind Bagged Teeny Tiny Terry from Baphomet Toys

     I like Halloween to the point that I keep my vintage blow mold decorations up throughout the year.  I've never had to decorate for the holiday because the house is filled with plenty of weird stuff beyond that.  As much as I enjoy the holiday we don't pass out candy because the kids freak my cats out.   You would think that they had warrants the way they scatter when anyone comes onto the porch, so we try and keep their stress levels to a minimum.  If they stay stress free then they don't run through the house like the world's smallest herd of buffalo, spreading destruction wherever they go.

   If I see kids like this roaming through the neighborhood it either means that the Purge has started, or the creations of Baphomet Toys have influenced the next generation of heathens.  Teeny Tiny Terry is just as his name implies; a wee little terror that might burn your house down if you try and give him something other than candy on Halloween.  There are 10 hand painted devilish ghouls and they are being sold blind bagged starting tomorrow (Wednesday, July 31) at 7pm pacific time.  The only way to get one for yourself is by visiting

Double Feature Resin Release from HH Toys

    For some of us Friday does not mean the end of the work week, as our pain will continue to Saturday and beyond.  Sharon and I often complain about how we don't want to have to go to work, but we add lots of specifics on to the end in case someone who is listening can actually grant our request and takes things very literally.  So while we would rather go to a flea market or have minor dental surgery than be forced to deal with the unreasonable public, we don't want our not having to work be a result of unemployment.  And we also want to continue to be paid at least the same amount of money but preferably more.  You gotta add that stuff in there just in case, as getting what you wish for requires a lot of fine print.

    HH Toys is giving you something to celebrate this Friday by having a killer double feature release. First up is their first fully painted edition EVER to exist.  This monkey is freaking me out and the paint job from Michael Devera is only adding to my unease.  I've been distrustful of monkeys since I went to a rescue zoo and one played Dixie with a Cheez-It on his cage to distract me while his buddy next door was fiddling with his monkey trumpet in an unwanted display of affection.  Haven't trusted one since and don't plan to in the near future. They're limited to 12 pieces and I don't recommend taking your eyes off of them.

    The next release is sold completely blind.  What will you get?  I have no idea as I'm the last to find out anything.  There are two sculpts involved with 6 possible variants that will total 50 pieces all together.  Go on, take a gamble and then show us all what you got because I'm really nosey.

     Everything goes up for sale today (Friday, July 26) at 5pm eastern time at this link.

Mike Fudge's KUB OG Edition Preorder from UVD Toys

    This dude would have instantly died if he had walked out of the house wearing this last week in New Jersey.  The heat would have turned his internal organs into a simmering, probably not so good tasting, soup and his eyes would have popped out of his head like the timer on a Butterball turkey.  I'm not even exaggerating that.  A few years ago we had an intense heat wave going and I had the bright idea for the wife and I to spend the day in Philadelphia.  Now country heat and city heat are two different animals, as what is survivable away from civilization is usually intolerable around concrete and buildings.  So there we are, roasting away like two old chickens when we come across a man wrapped up in a Jeff Gordon comforter.  We're talking wrapped up like a discarded mummy, as in you couldn't see his head nor feet.  This human sized burrito is just laying on the grass by a parking lot with tons of people walking by not even noticing him.  Meanwhile we're both looking for any signs of movement this Nascar blankie is trying to show us and we see nothing.  Either someone has discarded a dead body right off of South Street, or this person has entered a comatose state awaiting cooler weather.  We go back and forth, whether I should nudge him with my foot or whether we should call the police.  I decided not to do the former because what if he was totally okay and then I had to buy him cigarettes for waking him up, so we cross the street and alert someone at a local business so they can call the proper authorities.  (Maybe this was more than a few years ago as neither one of us had cell phones at the time).  We go about our business and ten minutes later we hear all kinds of sirens and police activity, but by the time we got back to the spot where the person was everyone, including him, was gone.  To this day we have no idea whether the person was saved or whether tons of tourists ignored a corpse as they enjoyed their vacations.  

     Mike Fudge's KUB OG edition may not be a summer weather lover, but this 7 inch vinyl figure is ready to bring the chill vibes to your home.  In fact, he is so chill he might save you money on your electric bill by allowing you to turn that ac off, though UVD Toys makes no claims to the validity of that statement.  And being that this is a preorder he won't ship out until fall, but with only 150 pieces of this version being made available, you won't want to wait until a whole nother season to order him.  Get your $75 ready and pay a visit to to secure yours.

Super7 San Diego Comic Con Leftovers On Sale Today

     I've never been to San Diego Comic Con.   I used to really want to go to San Diego Comic Con, but looking at the pictures online I am more than happy to have been home during the entire affair.  I'm not a huge fan of wall to wall human beings and prefer to be able to walk freely with as little impending my progress as possible.  That's not to say I wouldn't go, as I have been to the smaller New York Comic Con, it's just that I can't promise I won't freak out on an anime kid once my nerves are shot.

     If you were like me and didn't make it to the west coast never fear, because Super7 is going to give you the chance to snatch up their leftover exclusives.  Starting today at noon pacific time, anything that didn't leave with the hoarded masses will go online for anyone fast enough to get em.  Park your browser at and get hype for new toys.

Aztec Inspired Marvel Busts from Jesse Hernandez x Unruly Industries

     This.  More of this all the time.  I am sooooooooo tired of things like this not being the standard for a designer reinterpreting a licensed character.  The world certainly knows what everyone in the Marvel Universe looks like and I am beyond thrilled that they and Unruly Industries had the guts to let Jesse Hernandez run wild with these.  No one has ever see Wolverine or Iron Man look more bad ass then they do in these busts.  Seriously, I can't say enough good things about them.  These are are available for preorder right now by visiting

Krell Edition Thomas Nosuke from Doktor A x Tomenosuke

    Man am I ever obsessed with the storming of Area 51.  This is the second day in a row I've written about it and I refuse to not be hype.  My wife pointed out, as she is the more observant of the two of us, that this is the first real thing to encompass every popular meme on the Internet.  Whether it's the woman with the crooked haircut that wants to speak to your manager, or Harambe (r.i.p.), or even Kyle and his love for punching drywall, this phenomena has brought them all together.  What if, now hear me out, the raid on Area 51 is just the thing this country needs to make us realize that deep down we're all the same?  That the need to "see them aliens" will heal the great divides that our horrible government seems to widen on a daily basis.   This could be the watershed moment our time needs; the moment historians will look back favorably on as the one that defined the prosperous future that they enjoy.  Probably not, but damnit a boy can dream.

   Who's to say what the aliens we liberate are going to look like, but maybe they'll have some of the old timey flair of Doktor A's Thomas Nosuke.  I'm completely smitten with the matte copper finish of this Krell edition and you already know I'm a sucker for a good patina.  This collaboration between the good Doktor and Tomenosuke is ridiculously limited at only 40 pieces to be sold online here.  Try your best when they go on sale this Friday, July 19th, at 7:59 pst.  If you miss out he will also have 5 artist proofs available, giving you two chances at owning one.  Me thinks you should follow him on social media for more info and to see whether he will be making his way out to the Nevada desert this September to join the raiding party.

Tiny Guardian Shi-Shi Sofubi Kickstarter from Bigshot Toyworks

    As of this writing, the latest creation from Bigshot Toyworks has far surpassed their Kickstarter goal and tons of these little cats will be making their way to homes around the world when it ends.  They don't need me to help them along, so instead of feeling completely useless I'd like to talk about the internet's plan to storm Area 51.  It started as people just wanting to force the government to show us the aliens they are sure are being housed there and (as most things on the internet tend to do) has degraded into some folks wanting to make sweet love to an extraterrestrial.  While I hope people don't actually get themselves killed bum rushing a secret government facility armed only with cases of Monster Energy Drink and their ability to do the Naruto run, I would love to see them actually go.  Can you imagine 300,000 people showing up and just having a good time in the desert while the military is forced to keep them at gun point?  They'd probably get one of those historic plaques along the side of the road detailing their exploits, and maybe the president would visit to lay a wreath every year for those that get too hype and have to be put down by a sniper after attempting to scale the fence.  We honor your future sacrifice.

      As bad as I would like to go to Area 51 and release the aliens I don't really do well in the heat and would just be a sweaty mess.  Instead I offer my moral support to those brave souls, no matter what their true motivation is for taking part.   Speaking of taking part in something, if you want to add an adorable sofubi kitten to you repertoire of toys, then you need to check out this link.  Tons of rewards abound at special prices and includes figures that can only be had as part of this campaign.  There's blind boxed teeny tiny ones and big ol resin versions  and of course the luxurious Japanese sofubi ones.  Start your week off right by filling your home with wittle bay bays.

The First Release of The Hextraterrestrials from Martin Ontiveros x Toy Art Gallery

    There's nothing I could have used more than a pocket full of sorcerers this week.  I think I saw on Facebook that Mercury was in retrograde, which is supposed to make people extra crazy.  There may not be any science to it, but people most certainly seem to dial their nonsense level up to a thousand.  Whether it's been dealing with the public at work, or trying not to lose it on the beyond rude post office employee, my patience with my fellow man has certainly been tested.   Now if I had a bunch of mini sorcerers at my disposal I wouldn't hesitate to put an explosive diarrhea hex on anyone that is determined to make my life difficult.  I'm talking you ate some three day old Taco Bell digestive hurricane to make you think about what you've done.

  Sadly for me, I have yet to locate any real life micro wizard folk, but Martin Ontiveros keeps my hope alive with this set of Hextraterrestrials.  They're only an inch and a half tall and come in a set of six, so even if one isn't feeling your need for retribution, there's five more that may or may not have your back.  I'm betting it would be one of the skull guys. They look like they know how to have a good time.

   Toy Art Gallery produced this gang of magical misfits and they are available to join your collection right now by visiting  Each set is $60 plus shipping.

Bunny Boy Soft Vinyl Figure from Blake Jones x DoomCo Designs

    I don't have and rabbits living in my cubicle-sized yard, but I do have a family of chipmunks that has made their home under my porch.  Each day they fill their cheeks with anything that falls from the bird feeder, bury some of their loot in the various flower pots we have, and drive my cats insane as they watch their antics from the kitchen window.  They also strip my blueberry plant of its bounty every year, so much so that even though I've had the plant for five years I've eaten a total of one blueberry from it.  If it was a neighbor kid doing it I would have shot them with a harpoon gun, but the chipmunks are really cute and I don't mind them having a good meal.  Plus, have you ever seen a chipmunk climb a bush to steal fruit?  It's downright precious!

     DoomCo Designs is knows for sculpting their creations using virtual reality and the same technique was applied to creating this Bunny Boy figure from Blake Jones.  Standing g at 3 inches tall, this little critter is available now in either glossy white or baby pink for only $15 each.  They are limited to 250 pieces for each color and can be had by visiting

The Debut of Creepy Giant from Naoki Okamato and Planet X

     Sometimes, a man just needs a freakin huge weird toy with maggots and skin rips and assorted other horrors the get him through the day.  I flip flop in my interests between really cute stuff and stuff that would make you puke your liver out.  I'm all about diversifying my collecting portfolio and also having stuff that will confuse the hell out of any people that may enter my home.  You wanna use my bathroom?  Then you'll have to pass by the adjacent wall of Catholic iconography (mostly the Virgin Mary, she's dope).  And yeah, I may have a mummified fetal pig, but do I also have a picture of Lady Gaga in a dress made of Hello Kitty plush?  I think you know the answer.

   I don't know what on Earth happened to this guy, but I don't think a trip to the emergency room is gonna help.  This is the debut vinyl figure from artist Naoki Okamato and it is I-N-S-A-N-E.  I think this may be how twins happen, but I also think I just made that up.  This behemoth was produced by Planet X, stands a whopping 12 inches tall, and will make its debut at Wonderfestival later this month. This version will be released online after, so don't let you black little heart weep with despair from missing out.  Follow Planet X on Instagram by clicking here to keep up with the latest info.

Bake-Zame Lottery from Wonder Goblin x Candie Bolton

     Ol' Wonder Goblin is a busy dude: he's making movies, he's painting toys, he's sculpting toys, he's shaping foreign policy.  I guess that's why he has the word "wonder" in his name, cause I wonder where he's getting all this time.  The obvious answer is that he has opened portals into other dimensions and wrangled all of his mirror selves up and put them to work.  Genius!

    Not only did Wonder Goblin paint a run of these new Bake-Zame figures from Candie Bolton, but he actually sculpted them for her.  This paint job just screams spooky ocean to me, which is fitting because the name of the figure actually translates to "ghost shark" in Japanese.  Wasn't Ghost Shark one of those SYFY movies?  If not it should be.  The last one of those I watched had professional wrestler Rob Van Dam as the main star and for some reason he never did his frog splash finishing move in the entire hour and a half of the film.  Why fight against the obvious, screen writers of America?

    This 9 inch tall figure features 4 points of articulation and can only be had by entering a lottery, which will begin accepting entries on Saturday, July 6th at noon est and close 24 hours later. The winners will be drawn live on the Wonder Goblin Instagram page at 1pm on Sunday and each figure will be $250 plus shipping for those of you that fate deems worthy.    You can enter by visiting

The Sage Hunter Resin Figure and T-Shirt from HH Toys and Sage Screenprinting

        The JC Penny in my area is closing and the one thing you can always guarantee that will be left to the very end of any going out of business sale are men's dress clothes.  I needed to update my wardrobe for work, so I went and bought a pile of shirts and pants.  My favorite dress shirts they had available were "slim fit", which when combined are two of the worst words in the English language for anyone weighing in at a beefcake-like 220 lbs.  This forced me to forgo my normal large sizes and upgrade to an extra large in order to not blow the back clear out of them whenever I raised my arms.  There is absolutely no moral to this story other than clothes shopping is dumb.

    I can't wear this shirt to work, but I can assure you I would wear it anywhere else.  Thanksgiving with the family, random church picnics, and court proceedings are just a few of the places that you'll want to show off this collab from HH Toys and Sage Screenprinting.  Artist extraordinaire Sam Heimer designed the tee and it comes with a companion resin figure that looks like he's full of bad ideas, as if any of you need help in that department.  

    You can get this combo pack (that is limited to only 50 sets) when they go on sale tomorrow, July 4th, at 5pm at
