After years of creating amazing customs, Shiffa's first production toy is finally dropping this Friday, August 26. The Trikky, outfitted with plenty of custom molding, is called Willy the Wolf, a clear tribute to old-timey cartoons in the vein of some of Shiffa's previous work. He even comes with a bag to stuff stolen chickens in! This is also the first time a full-sized Trikky has been...

OK, I'm confused. This Evangelion Unit 01 figure by NXEDGE Style is super deformed yet still badass. Usually when you give something a big head and little body, it becomes cute. But thing's still ready to rip apart giant aliens and put up with Shinji's bullshit. This line of figures is part of Tamashii Nations, so you know you're getting quality stuff, tons of articulation, detailed sculpting...

Wow! The latest JPK custom is impressive on multiple levels. The customized Dissected Lego Anatomical figure by Jason Freeny and Mighty Jaxx features super detailed painting (just look at that face!) and a striped tie. What's mind-boggling is how Jon-Paul Kaiser sanded down and prep the figure for painting, what with all the nooks and crannies between the ribs and organs. Keep an eye out...

I don't know if it's the addictions, the jaded view of show business, or what, but Krusty the Clown is probably the only clown I'm not terrified of. The meta TV sensation is getting his own 100% Be@rbrick this December. To my knowledge, this is only the third Be@brick based on The Simpsons, the previous two being Bart and Homer. Preorders are open in Japan for ¥1,500, but I'm...

Neon Star by tokidoki Donutella and Chocotella

Normally I choose independent toy stores over big chains but I'm going to have to stop by Toys R Us for this release from Neon Star by tokidoki. Under Neon Star there's a new Donutella toy as well as one of her friends Chocotella. Based on this picture, it looks like these toys are made of plastic rather than the usual vinyl we've seen by...

You might remember Hyrule Historia, which collected the development history and lore of Nintendo's The Legend of Zelda series. I pass on this because the coverage for the pre-3D era was pretty light. But I'm definitely tempted by Dark Horse's newest book, The Legend of Zelda: Art & Artifacts, which is purely focused on the series' artwork. Over 400...

It's like it's 1972 all over again. S.H. Figuarts are releasing super articulated action figures of Devilman and Mazinger Z, two iconic manga and anime characters created by Go Nagai. The two IPs were ahead of their time, not just thematically but because they had a crossover movie way back in 1973. As part of the Dynamic Classics line, these are far more customizable than standard...
