FAFI is having a pop up shop at Galerie LJ in Paris as of tonight and stays open till the 22nd of the month. At the pop up store there will be 10 new prints, Married to the Mob tees, Mugs, Candles and Limited edition customised Vans. Click through for images and prices: Now these prints look especially amazing and for me are the highlight of the store. 10 New Giclee prints in editions of just 10 each. I really wanted to get my hands on the first one but alas the prices are too much for me. Fafi has grown to be an artist of high importance in the fashion world and unfortunately that means...

Based on Chris Ryniaks custom of Ferg's Misfortune Cat and produced by Playge. Playge have been really focusing on quality production in their figures, yes this does come with some pricey figures being produced but you can't deny the quality of the Playge Rat, Squadts, Misfortune cat and the collaborations with Brandt Peters. And that makes is perfectly justified in my opinion. Tho UK prices can sometimes be a tad hard to bear... Here's that full shot of the figure. As you can see it has 2 eyes missing and the head is detached which pretty much means this is whole new sculpt and it looks...

Been seeing little teasers of this recently, none of which big enough to really talk about so I havent blogged it till now. It's always exciting when Usugrow releases a new toy with SecretBase. When his art burst on the scene we were all literally blown away and then he produced the awesome Rebel Ink figure with SB. The Salvation Ink was exqually awesome but had some standing up issues (but we wont mention that too much)... Secret Base have been making some awesome Japanese Vinyl skulls for years now. Solid colors, transparent, sparkly, pinstriped and now this Usugrow 1/1 scale skull head is...

NYC really is the place to be right for awesome installation art. Following on from Friends with You's Rainbow City, Clutter's Jim and Josh took a trip out to visit the GIANT KAWS companion installation titled 'Passing through' currently located outside of The Standard hotel in NYC's Meat Packing District. Standing at 16 foot tall and sculpted out of fiberglass, this massive KAWS companion, is on an international tour, making a temporary home in NYC until October 2011 (which is awesome so i can go visit!). Previously this piece has been seen at his solo exhibition in Hong Kong and at the...

Check out the upcoming collection of artist collaborations in the next AnyForty Versus Collection. This collection from the UK brand could be the best yet and features designs from Triclops, Yup, Waste, Johanna Beresford, Matt Taylor, J3 Concepts & Drew Millard . The collection should be dropping very shortly so keep your eyes peeled to their blog and twitter for updates! Personally i'm digging all of em, especially the Clops, Drew Millard, J3 Concepts and most of all the Waste design. That Nottinghamshire based sonofabitch is one talented dude!

Sorry, bit late on this one but wanted to share my thoughts on the subject regardless. I mean as far as news goes, this is as big as the announcement of when Kidrobot partnered with 3D animation studio Wildbrain, tho that didn't exactly turn out as planned. No such issues to be had with this partnership as everything is already at full steam ahead to make it happen... David Horvath and Sun Min Kim struck massive with the Ugly Doll range, from gaining a small dedicated following of plush collectors, to really hitting the mainstream, and yet they still manage to tread a beautiful line of...

Koji Harmon aka Cometdebris is a master customiser, a genius with an airbrush. I've been lucky to see some of his customs in the flesh and they work on them is simply stunning, even more appreciated on a small scale figure. His latest release is matching versions of his Tokoji Seijin figure and his own version of David Horvath and Sun Min Kims 'My Friend Dave' figure. Both cast in pink vinyl with metallic purple and black sprays with bright yellow eyes. Tokoji also features a purple and blue splattered shell. "Each figure is made in Japan and hand painted by Koji Harmon at Cometdebris...
