Chris Ryniak and Amanda Louise Spayd's Gemnibbler Exclusive from Umi Toys Hawaii

    Happy New Year, ya filthy animals!  The best way to start your next 365 days off right is to treat yourself to some retail therapy.  I started the New Year with a sinus infection; mouth breathing my way home from work last night while R.E.M.'s "It's the End of the World as We Know It" filled the interior of my Hyundai.  Kind of an ominous start to 2019, but if life were easy I certainly wouldn't recognize it if it was standing next to me and tapping my shoulder.  So while I could bore you with top 10 lists or other nonsense that people usually do this time of year, my cold medicine is insisting we throw that idea in the trash and instead tell you about something new.  Brace yourselves, for I am at its mercy.

   There's nothing worse that being a collector of anything and not being able to get each and every thing associated with it.  Do you want to know how many sets of figures I have where I'm only missing one and that one that eludes me is priced at a level that would keep me up at night?  I'd tell you, but lets not dwell on the negative.  Umi Toys is ensuring that every collector of the Thimblestump Hollow series 2 figures from Chris Ryniak and Amanda Louise Spayd will be able to complete their sets by offering up this exclusive Canyon edition Gemnibbler.  This enemy of precious jewels is limited to only 85 pieces, retails for $15, and can only be had by visiting  One of these will also be included if you are purchasing one of their Fukubukuro lucky bags.

   These figures are produced by the fine folks of Cardboard Spaceship, who have yet to convince NASA that corrugated paper is the best material for use when constructing the shuttle.

Autumn Algonac Mini from Chris Ryniak x Squibbles Ink x Rotofugi

      Anyone that makes any type of product that is set to release this time of year should always have the words "pumpkin spice" in the title.  I don't care what it is or whether it relates to what you're selling or not, those two words cause a feeding frenzy.  I hear Harley Davidson is having trouble attracting new customers, but not after they release the Pumpkin Spice Edition Sportster.  Don't mind me, I'm just out here saving us from the decisions of that failed business man that's ruining our country.

    Chris Ryniak's Algonac mini figure looks like he's taken my advice to heart, color wise anyway, as he is the perfect shade for Fall.  This stylized 2.25 inch vinyl turtle is produced by Squibbles Ink and Rotofugi and is limited to 150 pieces in this edition.  You can own one right now by visiting  They retail for the ridiculously low price of $17.95 each.

Seafoam Dewdrop Resin Mini Figures from Chris Ryniak

    As I was attempting to write this post one of my cats jumped up on my desk, and peed on one of my work shirts.  No hesitation, just like it was something completely normal that we do everyday.  I'm about ready to call that Guy Fieri looking dude from Animal Planet to come over here and kitten whisper some better ideas to her.  Oh, and not only that, when she was done she went downstairs and punched one of the other cats in the face hard enough to leave a shed claw stuck in her nose.  Apparently she's become a drunken step dad over night and I am not cool at all with this phase.  Why couldn't she just go goth and dye her hair black and write Marilyn Manson lyrics on her notebooks like every other disgruntled teenager?

   Dewdrops are way too innocent looking to every spring anything like that on you.  Just look at that sweet little face and those big eyes.  My clean work clothes wouldn't have to all be washed again because they would still smell like Tide if I had a house full of these.  Chris Ryniak's little resin buddies have been cast in a brand new seafoam color way and will be available this Saturday, March 3rd at 3pm eastern time exclusively from

Icebox Pocket Sideshow Chibi Figures from Circus Posterus

    Where were these little dudes when I was digging my car out of the snow and ice a few days ago?  They look primed for the frozen outdoors and I'm sure I could have found them some tiny shovels in just their size to help with the work.  Shoveling snow feels like a curse, but having little elf-sized helpers would probably make it at least mildly amusing.

    Circus Posterus is unleashing the latest in their series of Pocket Sideshow figures this Friday and they perfectly capture the more magical side of the season we are in.  Featuring designs from Kathie Olivas, Brandt Peters, Chris Ryniak, and Amanda Louise Spayd, these little dudes will make you feel much less hateful to the ice that has encased your wife's car until the spring thaw.

SDCC Exclusive Snybora from Chris Ryniak x Squibbles Ink x Rotofugi

    Doesn't this dude look like he wants to strike up a conversation with you?  Like at any moment he will start waxing poetic about how this season of True Detective is way better than the first one because the dialogue, while still seemingly written by someone on mushrooms, has the benefit of not having to be delivered by that stoner in the Lincoln commercials (he's not up on famous Hollywood actors).  Oh, and he absolutely has a British accent, as he was Oxford educated, but doesn't like to talk about it to avoid being labeled a snob.  

    Chris Ryniak's Snybora is going all exclusive for San Diego Comic Con in this sweet green paint scheme.  This pretty little lizard man bro will be available at Rotofugi and Squibbles Ink's booth #5248 for $35 each.  Buy me one and I'll let you decide where he's gonna live in my house.  You have no idea what a big step that is for me and my OCD.

More NYCC Exclusives from Clutter Magazine

    New York Comic Con just opened it's doors, and while I won't be there until tomorrow, there is plenty to see and do right this instant.  Clutter Magazine sent me an email filled with all kinds of nutty stuff you're gonna want so let's get to it shall we.

   Fact:  Bears have skulls the same shape as human beings do.  It's on the internet, so it must be true.  Luke Chueh only made 15 of these Dissected Bear Heads in Kenner prototype blue, with 5 being released each day via an 11am lottery system.  The lottery last 15 minutes, after which time the winners will be announced and then they get to buy this dude.  No lottery today, only on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, so you have time to plan accordingly.  

    Tim Clarke is a legend.  The day he followed me on Instagram I almost pooped my britches.  This dude not only created Boglins and Sectaurs, but he worked on The Dark Crystal with Jim Henson.  We're talking about things that defined people's childhoods.  He's got a new toy series out called Totims and he will have a bunch of those and those prints you see above.  He'll be hanging around Saturday starting at noon and if you're gonna shake anyone's hand during the show, his would be a good one.  Maybe some of the magic will rub off.  

    Ron English is obviously not as big a fan of breakfast cereal as I am.  And I love Cap'n Crunch, even though it shreds the rook of your mouth like you were chewing razor blades.  This is the latest edition of his obese faux pirate, and it will be released Saturday at 1pm and Ron will be there to sign em and tell you the dangers of high fructose corn syrup.  

    I've been in a few fights in my day.  Most of those involved dust ups in my high school cafeteria and certainly never with anyone that looked like this.  Who would fight this guy?  I don't care how bad you think you are, when you see a guy dressed like this and with such an unpleasant look on his face, you need to move along.  Restore made this glow in the dark Neo Japan in such uber limited quantities (10) that he will be sold through a lottery system on Saturday at 2pm with the drawing taking place 15 minutes later.  

    Saturday is gonna be busy for whoever is manning booth # 504, cause at 3pm Jon-Paul Kaiser and UME Toys will be present to release their Buford Mandrake figure.  He comes with two masks, though which one is more disturbing is open to debate.  Meet those fine English gents and pick up this collaboration piece that is sure to be a hit, cause I said so.

    Ok, this is pretty killer.  We've never seen Jeff Lamm's Greasebat figure  Lana Crooks hand made five of these stunning plush toys and I hope there is one left just so I can see it in person.  

    The Flyers lost last night and I'm kinda bummed about that, but they did play pretty well.  And I love the orange and black no matter what and this lizard bro makes me thankful that there's another game tonight with which they can redeem themselves.  Chris Ryniak's Snybora has long been a favorite of mine and this paint job from Squibbles Ink and Kirby Kerr makes it even closer to my heart.  Only 25 folks can own one though, so you better be quick if you wanna play with him on the ride home.  

    Visit the Clutter folks at booth #504 for all that you see and more.  That kinda sounded like something a game show announcer would say.  I need some sleep.

SDCC Exclusive Snybora from Chris Ryniak x Rotofugi x Squibbles Ink

    I am going to admit something I'm not terribly proud of right now:  One of my favorite things to watch on tv at the moment is Naked and Afraid.  There are a couple of reasons I enjoy this show.  One is that I am desperately trying to wrap my head around why anyone would want to be dropped in the wilderness without pants and being left there for three weeks.  Maybe I just don't know how to have fun.  The other reason I like it is because I feel that if I watch enough of them someone is going to get bit by a snake in a very uncomfortable place and it will be the single greatest thing that has ever been on tv.  Like when that guy got his calf bit off on Shark Week and they actually showed it!!!!  That was I-N-S-A-N-E!!!  So far nothing real bad has happened to anyone on the show other than some questionable food choices that led to stomach discomfort, but a producer did get bitten by a snake and half his foot rotted off.  That was pretty gross and a perfect example on why the people that are on this show have lost their minds.  

    I would also be totally fine with something like this Snybora rising from a lake and chasing two naked folks through the woods.  I imagine he would run kind of like a frilled lizard and scare the living crap out of you.  The Blushing Envy version of this scaly menace was created by Chris Ryniak and brought to life by Squibbles Ink and Rotofugi and is an exclusive to San Diego Comic Con.  Get one for yourself at booth 5248 for $35 and have it sit next to you as you watch reality television for all the wrong reasons.

Orange Bugbites and More from Chris Ryniak on Sale Today!!!!

    The first thing I do when I check into a hotel room is lift the mattress and look for evidence of bed bugs.  Usually after I am satisfied that I will not be transporting an infestation in my suitcase, I then move on to determining whether or not the blanket stains are fresh, where the standing water smell is coming from, and if the peeling wall paper is concealing anything sinister/valuable.  I really should step up my hotel game, but I can't see paying a ton of money just for somewhere to sleep for a little bit.  The three days of itching afterwards are totally worth the savings!

    I have yet to find any bed bugs in my hotel rooms, but I wouldn't mind finding one of these in the nightstand.  If all critters were this adorable exterminators would all be out of business, cause no matter how harmful they were you couldn't bring yourself to poison them.  These little resin dudes are called Bugbites and you can start your own plague of Biblical proportions when they go on sale today at 2pm Eastern time through Chris Ryniak's new webstore.  He'll also have some drawings available so you can freshen up your home decor game.

Even More NYCC Exclusives from myplasticheart

    My wife is losing her mind over these.  As I've told you before, she crochets, so she gets really excited when she sees anyone under the age of 150 doing something cool with the craft she loves.  Her future best friend Leesasaur has teamed up with Abe Lincoln Jr. for these Denbu figures.  Only 6 of each design were handmade with love.  And yarn, cause yarn is the most important part actually.

    Glop In a Box is a very descriptive name for this toy.  It's exactly what you get:  this big, green melty dude stuffed into a wooden crate.  That's called truth in advertising folks.  Andrew Bell is the man behind this toy and you can buy one from him directly for $120 when he makes an appearance on Saturday.  

    There's not one but TWO exclusive kitty releases this year?  Are you appealing to directly to me you clever folks?  The first one is this Negora from Konatsu.  This black kitty has some wacky mismatched eyes and can be yours for $35.  

    This next plastic feline comes to you courtesy of Chris Ryniak and Ferg.  He looks like he might be having a bad day.  Not only did he drive a sword through his own head, but he seems to be radioactive.  Hopefully he's only on life 5 or 6, cause this is gonna take some effort to recover from.  For $55 you can bring him home and use him to light the path to your bathroom at night.  

    Oooooooh, I dig this guy.  This is Mad's Modern Hero figure living out his Skeletor cosplay fantasy.  I'm digging this guy and I have a strong feeling he may be making the ride back to New Jersey with me.  $65 will get you one of your own so you don't have to touch mine.  I'm kinda weird about that.

Get these and tons more at the myplasticheart booth #113 at New York Comic Con.

More SDCC Releases from Squibbles Ink x Rotofugi

    What am I gonna do with myself once all this Comic Con stuff is over with?  Maybe I'll write a novel, or start a motorcycle gang.  There's been so much stuff to talk about and I can't keep up with it all, so maybe I'll just take more naps to rest my weary brain.  Making every post this sexy takes work my friends.  

    Squibbles Ink and Rotofugi have a bunch more plastic thingys that I haven't told you about yet and that I'm gonna do right now.  Like this Vesper Dredge from Brian Morris.  Kinda freaky, like some back woods totem worshiped by mixed up hillbillies.  Or to reference my childhood, Christmas time with family.  We would dance around this guy right before we burned our Christmas witches.  For $65, you can start your own holiday traditions.  

    Chris Ryniak's Snybora figure is always a good buy.  At times he looks cute.  At times he looks murderous.  It just depends on what angle you look at him from.  Decide for yourself for $38.

    This guy was also designed by Chris Ryniak and would make a perfect companion piece to the Snybora figure.  You could reenact all of the Lethal Weapons movies and put them on Youtube.  This guy is obviously Danny Glover.  It's $108 for the painted one, and $75 for a blank pink one.  

    As soon as the folks at the Discovery Channel hear about a marshmallow yeti they're gonna make a reality show about trying to find one.  The show will be filled with stupids that hear sounds that no one else does and see things that no one else does.  "Wait, did you hear that?'' No, no one heard that.  Even with all the high tech electronics you have it did not pick up the mating call you swear you heard.  You're a liar or you need medication.  

    This Sparkle Yeti Mini Marshall is real though. It was made by 64 Colors and is a bargain at only $9.  Good luck finding a parking space for cheaper.  

    Max Toy Co. will also be there with a plethora of customs and production figures to fit every budget.  And this isn't even everything they're gonna bring.  Kaiju, Kaiju, Kaiju!!!!!!!

Get it all at booth #5248.

Stinky Ginger "Tide Pool" Edition from Chris Ryniak x Circus Posterus x Tomenosuke

    This is how I picture most food looking after it's in my stomach.  Those that know me know that I don't have the greatest digestive system in the world and just looking at certain foods can cause my guts to cramp up in a fit of rebellion.  I believe all food has the temperament of Philadelphia sports fans and if given the chance will stab you in the parking lot of an Eagles game.

     The Tide Pool edition of Chris Ryniak's Stinky Ginger will release tomorrow (July 3rd) from Circus Posterus and Tomenosuke.  He looks ready to force you into using the nearest public bathroom you can find.  Only 60 of these were made:  30 for North America through Circus Posterus and 30 for the rest of the world through Tomenosuke.  Each comes signed and numbered on the header card and will sell for $89.
