Battle Cat Trophy Sculpture from Pretty in Plastic

    When I was little I used to keep a notebook filled with all the ridiculous things I would buy if I was stupid rich.  Most of the stuff involved was from the JCPenny or Sears Christmas catalogs, but times were hard and no one had the internet in their house yet, so you have to work with what ya got.  And I kept things real specific too, just in case when I got stupid rich my memory wasn't as bangin as my bank account.  All item details were on the left of the page, with the prices on the right.  I also accounted for Virginia sales tax cause I didn't want to come up short on my imaginary spending spree.  Now that I see this I almost wish I was still keeping up with my stupid rich notebook, or at least stupid rich so I could skip the whole recording process and just buy this sucker straight cash.

    Oh may have previously seen this sweet Battle Cat trophy head hanging up in Super7's San Diego location when it was transformed into Skeletor's Lair during San Diego Comic Con.  And if you did then you've probably tried to figure out how to get one for yourself ever since.  Well, Pretty In Plastic are making 10 of these beauties available and the price tag is certainly not for the faint of heart, but beyond worth it.  At $8500 each it may not fit into every budget, but just think about how jealous everyone will be when they know you have it.  How can you put a price on that kind of envy?  If you want one shoot an email over to

    On a different note: stop hunting real animals for sport.  It doesn't make you a man to shoot a defenseless creature.  In fact, it makes you a coward.  I have no problem with people hunting to eat, but there is no reason to do so because you think its fun.  It makes me want to hurt you.

"The Art of Toys" Exhibition at the Museum of Art and History Opens This Weekend

    I love museums.  There is very little I'd rather do then spend the day exploring a museum I've never been to.  The great thing about living in New Jersey is that I'm close to Philadelphia, New York, Baltimore, and Washington D.C. so my wife and I have been able to check out places regularly that many people center entire vacations around.  The bad thing about living where we do is that we're gonna completely miss what promises to be an awesome exhibition in California opening at the end of this week.

   The Art of Toys focuses on those folks on the West coast who have been instrumental in shaping what we know as the world of designer toys.  Curated by Julie B. of Pretty in Plastic and Heidi Johnson of Hijinx PR, this is going to be like visiting the toy store of your dreams.  It's taking place at the Museum of Art and History in Lancaster, California and proceeds from the show will fund art programs throughout the city.  Plus there are pinball machines you can play and limited edition stuff you can buy.  More details can be had by clicking here.  

    Check out the list of artists that will be participating:  

Attaboy, Anthony Ausgang, Gary Baseman, Beast Brothers, BIGFOOT, Dave Bondi, Ryan (RYCA) Callanan, Brian Castleforte, Buff Monster, Luke Chueh, Bob Dob, FERG, Paul Frank, David Flores, Dan Goodsell, Gary Ham, Nathan Hamill, Dave Horvath (Uglydoll), Jay222, Eric Joyner, Kano, Frank Kozik, Kozyndan, Mike Leavitt, Joe Ledbetter, Simone Legno (TokiDoki), Aaron "Woes" Martin (Angry Woebots), Elizabeth McGrath, Tony Millionaire, Junko Mizuno, Kathie Olivas, Nathan Ota, Brandt Peters, Dave Pressler, Mark Ryden, Greg (CRAOLA) Simkins, Sket One, Skinner, Jeff Soto, Bwana Spoons, Scott Tolleson, Mark Dean Veca, Yoskay Yamamoto, and many more.

Curiosity: Lava Edition from Nathan Hamill x Vinyl Riot Toys

    My union contract states that if I write about Nathan Hamill anymore this week he's gonna have to start contributing to my 401k.  Seriously, this dude has been going nuts with new releases.  His next one is actually going to drop tomorrow, June 29th, at noon Eastern from Vinyl Riot Toys.  The Curiosity: Lava Edition was sculpted by the folks at Pretty in Plastic, made by Oni Creations, and looks like delicious candy.  Check out the picture below to see all the different variations in color you could get:

Kammu: Bronze Edition from Nathan Hamill

    I will own you at Monopoly.  There's nothing you can do about it. I will have you so in debt to me by the end of the game that I will own your real life things too.  I'll take your car, your house, I'll even take your dog.  That's just how I roll.  When it comes to fake business transactions I'm like a steamroller through suburbia, leaving only hotels in my wake.  

    Imagine how intimidating it would be if you had a one of these guys to use as your game piece.  There's nothing about an old hobo's shoe that let's people know you're here to take all of their railroads and utilities, but this guy screams power.  Of course Nathan Hamill didn't design this bronze edition of Kammu for use in a board game, but who's to say you can't get maximum enjoyment out of your collectibles?  Produced by Pretty in Plastic and limited to only 30 pieces, this guy is available for preorder right now from

Curiosity "Pop Bomb Edition" from Nathan Hamill

    Every night when I come home from work there's this ice cream truck driving through my neighborhood playing that god awful carney music.  It wouldn't be so bad if it were a legit looking truck and not a conversion van with a air conditioner installed in one of the doors and the menu spray painted on the side.  I bet it's a mystery to him why he never has to stop even once while slowly creeping down the road.  It would be safer to answer a Craigslist ad giving away free meat than to buy ice cream from this dude. 

    And so it goes that I haven't had one of those rocket pops in years.  Those things are the best and i've suffered this injustice for too long.  So while I try and find a less serial-killy ice cream man in a nicer neighborhood, you can gaze upon these Curiosity resin figures from Nathan Hamill.  Sculpted by Julie B. and produced by Oni Creations, these 5 inch tall figures will be available this Friday at Comicpalooza in Houston, Texas for $80.  Just don't try and lick them.  I can't imagine resin tastes that great.
