Mr Clement's Final Astrolapin Full Reveal & Release

Mr Clement has revealed full shots of the final version of his Astrolapin toy. The steel-colored vinyl combined with a glossy finish gives the toy a metallic look. A silvery flag accessory joins the space bunny, both encased in a brushed steel style monolith, adding even more of a callback to 2001: A Space Odyssey. Despite tagging Rotofugi in the teaser announcement, this figure is...

Dolly Oblong Oblong Dairobo-Z 5" Dunny Teaser from Kidrobot

Earlier today, Kidrobot posted a teaser of the packaging for two upcoming 5 inch Dunnys. While we are well aware of Sekure D's first production Dunny, we're surprised and pumped to see Dolly Oblong getting her own 5-inch Dunny as well. If you look closely at the picture, you can make out...

Follow Friday | Nathan Jurevicius Scarygirl

Creator of Scarygirl, Nathan Jurevicius is a staple of the designer toy scene. But that's not exactly why we're highlighting him in this week's Follow Friday. What's caught my eye recently is Nathan's near-daily colored pencil illustrations of momentus events if rock 'n' roll history. Despite their scribbled, minimalist style, the musicians featured in the drawings are instantly recognizable,...
