Instapump fury

For everyone who missed out on the reissues of Reebok's classic Instapump Fury OG neon yellow and red colorway, this new edition might be your best bet to recapture the retro-futuristic sneaker. While the neon yellow is absent from this color scheme, the red is nearly identical to the original, albeit on the air bladder, rather than the upper. A white on black version is also releasing...

Ninja Turtles sofubi

Even they're officially licensed by Viacom, these Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sofubi toys from Dune remind me of the Asian bootleg TMNT toys I used to see as a wee child. Each character stands about 10 inches tall and comes with his signature weapon. They come bagged and tagged, as any sofubi should. And let's face it; you can't just buy one of these. Grab all...

Takara produced the first wave of figures, which drew interest from Hasbro, who figured they could make a few bucks by bringing the toys over here and creating a corresponding Saturday morning cartoon. Things have come full circle, as Soap Studio is...

JPK's newest entry into his Worker Project is out today! The Miner is printed on A3 sized stock and is signed and numbered. This one is particularly personal to Jon-Paul Kaiser: "I grew up in an old mining community and a lot of my family were coal miners, the stories, buildings and scars upon the landscape telling the tales of how the industry changed whole areas", he says. Pick up your...

Thrice album

Here's something I never thought I'd say: A new Thrice album is out today. Released by Vagrant Records, To Be Everywhere Is to Be Nowhere is the first release since the band's live album of their "Farewell Tour" in 2012. The band is also kicking off a tour of the US, Canada, and European on June 3. While the new album certainly doesn't return to Thrice's earlier days of The Illusion of Safety...
