Copper Modern Hero Bank from Mad Available Today!

    You know what's genius about this bank?  It's the same color as the only money I have.  These cats are expensive son.  I've never seen creatures eat the way they do, or that were as hell bent on destroying all my stuff.  I don't know what they're insistent on acting like your mom's second husband, but it's killing me financially.  I wouldn't even bother putting my money in this bank because by the time it hit the bottom it would already be spent on cat food or that fancy litter they insist upon that costs a day's wages per bag.  Can a brother get a telethon?  

    But this Modern Hero bank from Mad sure is pretty to look at, even if the only thing you're storing in it is dust.  It's a beast at 18 inches tall and this copper colorway is limited to only 30 pieces that go on sale today over at

NYCC Exclusive Blind Bagged Resin Micro MadL's from Mad

    I am loving these Micro MadL's.  The mix of colors reminds me of when Sharon and I visited the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in Washington back in June.  She developed a healthy amount of knowledge on gems and minerals due to her employment at the time and we spent hours trying to photograph everything on display.  These look like they were carved from pieces of the exhibit.  Of course, they are only resin, but the effect's Mad was able to achieve, coupled with the flat nature of the figure, make for a truly unique piece of plastic art.  The only way to get one of these is to track down Mad during New York Comic Con this weekend and hand him $20.  Which one you get will be a surprise, but I don't see how owning any one of them could be disappointing.  Might not be a bad idea to try and hunt him down as soon as you can, as there's no word on just how many he'll have with him.

Phase4 MADL Variants from MAD Available This Friday

    You know what drives me crazy?  Well, a lot of things do actually, and seeing as how I have to go to work soon, I don't have enough time to tell you them all.  Plus I don't want my therapist to get jealous.  One of the things that drives me bonkers are variant figures that I can never get.  Usually they're packaged blind box and you have to buy 50 of them to get every version, or they're an exclusive to some convention and 90% of them end up on eBay for more than a car payment.  That's why I have such a great appreciation for MAD and what he is doing here.  Sure he made some variant figures of his popular Phase4 MADLs, but he's not making you go broke or insane to get them.  Instead he packaged em all together and will be offering them for sale on his website this Friday, May 30th.  $100 will get you all three and you'll still have the rest of the day to go fishing, or nap, or whatever.

Dripple Series 1 Platform Toy from Sket-One and Mighty Jaxx

    I enjoy a good platform toy.  I like the fact that it's one basic shape and it's up the artist to really bring it to life while making it unique.  Mighty Jaxx has teamed up with Sket One to produce their first ever platform toy, Dripple.  There are two things about this figure that I think make it successful.  The first is a huge area in which to put designs.  They're not limited by little stubby arms or legs or really harsh angles, so the art really has a chance to be unrestrained.  The second is that the arms are all interchangeable and they will be making more accessories to go along with the figures, so you can mix and match them however you want.  Not only does that give you options for display, but customizers will have more choices when making their own creations.  

    Now, they need your help to get this series into production.  They are raising the funds right now over at and it works the same way as Kickstarter.  There are different levels of rewards for your contribution, including some hand made figures, complete sets, and even a three foot tall Dripple.  They've actually just hit their main goal a few hours ago, but they still need help in hitting those stretch goals and unlocking more cool stuff.

Micro MADL 3D Prints from MAD Available Now!

    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.  

    But we're not here to talk about advances in medicine or preparing for the end times; we're here to talk about toys.  Thankfully some people are still using their 3D printers for sensible means, like producing little plastic figures.  MAD has shrunk down his famous MADL figure and has been working his printer overtime to produce these dudes.  Each toy is only 35mm tall and comes bagged with a signed header card.  You can own a piece of the future for only $15 by visiting

Modern Hero Bank in Blue from MAD x Tenacious Toys

    I'm great at saving money.  However, I suck at making money, so there's never really anything to save. It is my curse.  I do however have the hair of a Sears catalog model, so I have that going for me.

    If I had money I would want to keep it in this Modern Hero bank from Mad.  You just lift off his little hat and fill his plastic body with your riches.  I would fill it mostly with rocks and whatever change I find in the parking lot so people thought I was a baller if they tried to pick it up and shake it.  This sucker is huge too, standing a whopping 18 inches high.  And it would be really awesome to walk into the bank carrying this when you have to cash your coins/rocks in.  Tenacious Toys is the exclusive retailer of this blue version and have it up for preorder right now on their website.  They only made 30 of them so act quick sucka and get on the road to successful wealth management.

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.
