@GeekeryDo: @mikeyturvey I agree with you. I stopped reading them because I got tired of it, though @Sir_Narwhal is correct that it's normal for comics.

@GeekeryDo: @Sir_Narwhal @mikeyturvey yeh but that's just one arc and it's easy to read it all since, as you said, it's been put together like that.

@NFern0: @Sir_Narwhal Sounds like (ohoho) specialist equipment. Black Friday is more mass consumer oriented isn't it?

Way back before NYCC we showed you a teaser of ESCToy’s main Black Friday release, Armora, and at NYCC we got a full look at the two pieces together. Now that all of the turkey and stuffing have been eaten and we’ve all shown our thanks, Erick Scarecrow and ESCToy are thanking all of their loyal fans over the last six years with three new releases! First up is the large Armora & Dragovo set which stand in at a whopping 18″ tall and 7″ tall and take up almost an entire display case shelf by themselves! This stunning set is limited to 15 pieces and will retail for $600.00 and comes with $1.00 shipping in the U.S.
Next up is my favorite of the releases, Crow Crow Bear Twilight Edition! When I first saw this figure back at NYCC, I knew I had to have one; the blues, yellows, and oranges are just so gorgeous in the clear resin and I can’t have enough of Crow Crow Bear! If you’re like me and need to add this little 6.5″ figure to your collection, he’ll be a run of 25 pieces and retail for $75.00 with $12.00 shipping within the U.S. Last, but not least, is the Scarecrow Blue Nathan Drake figure. This colorway is limited to 100 pieces and will retail for $49.99 with $15.00 shipping inside the U.S. only — sorry international folks, this guy can’t leave the border! This piece will also include limited DLC for Uncharted 3, so if you want the special DLC be sure to act fast because there aren’t many of these beautiful blue little guys!
Well, that’s it for this year! Armora & Dragovo, Crow Crow Bear Twilight, and the Scarecrow Blue Drake are all hitting the ESCToy webstore at 12 am EST in a little under half an hour, so good luck to all and congratulations to ESCToy for making it to six years!

A few months ago we showed you Lou Pimentel‘s new Siamese Cherries that he is producing in resin and now we have word of the second colorway, a black cherry! Set to be released on Black Friday, the black cherry features extra detailing on his face in a black and grey colorway. The black cherries are quite limited at 12 pieces and will be available starting this Friday, November 25th (Black Friday for those not in the know) for $65 with $7 shipping within the U.S. and $10 for international shipping and will be online at Lou’s webstore.
Also, now available are the original red cherries, which are an open run and are going for $50 with the same shipping prices. For those wondering about the delay in the production, these have also been re-designed from the ground up via 3D sculpting by Chris Raab so as to make the stems of the cherries much more secure. Don’t fret though as each piece is still produced via hand by Lou himself and painted with oil pants by him as well for a great affordable piece of art. Are any of you readers camping out at your keyboards for 12 PM EST this Friday to get your hands on one of these? I know I will be!

The other day we showed you about the new pink Mermadi release from ESCToy, but that’s not all that’s happening in the world of Erick Scarecrow currently! Today we received an e-mail with a few other new pieces that are on the horizon from this toymaker as well including more information about the Uncharted 3 Drake figures as well as a new colorway of Pinnola!
First up is the new colorway of Pinnola, which is the OG release and is in a pink, yellow, and orange colorway. Like the pink Mermadi, we saw this back at NYCC, and now, a short time later, we have its release upon us. This OG edition will be a run of 20 pieces and this 6.5″ figure will retail for $135.00 with $10 shipping within the United States. If you need a new puppet girl for your collection, Pinnola will be releasing on November 18th, 2011 on the ESCToy webshop, so act fast before she becomes a real girl and runs away with someone else!
Next up is the secret pink Mermadi release, which –SURPRISE– is now available! This all pink colorway that is an edition of 5 is now available on the ESCToy webstore for $300 each and is one gorgeous colorway. Speaking of gorgeous colorways is the final bit of info from this latest e-mail: the Scarecrow Blue Nathan Drake figure from Uncharted 3 is almost ready for release! This all blue colorway will be available immediately upon release in late November, so keep your eyes out for it, and don’t forget to pre-order the OG or Naughty Dog colorways now as well as they come with DLC for the game and are quite stunning in person to boot!
Well, that’s it for this week! I can’t wait to see what’s next from ESCToy and let us know what you like that you see here in the comments below.

Back at NYCC we showed you a lot of new pieces from ESCToy including a whole slew of new Mermadi figures including a new sculpt. Now, we have word from Erick Scarecrow and ESCToy that the next Mermadi release will be the second colorway of the first sculpt of her. This all pink colorway of Mermadi features lots of different shades of pink and a big bubblegum wave to go along with her and is one unique colorway. There’s no word on when or how much this Mermadi will release for, but we do know that it will most certainly release at some point this week on the ESCToy webstore and that it will also be limited to only 5 pieces, so act fast if you want to try to catch this rare animal! I hope we see the new Mermadi sculpt release next, but what do you think, do you like the original sculpt or new sculpt better? Let us know in the comments below!

Before NYCC, we showed you the many unpainted Vlads that Jared Deal had received from Argonaut Resins and was planning on painting. Now, we finally have more information and pictures on the release of these little fellows! The first release of the new suit sculpt will be dubbed the Montana edition and will be based upon the character Tony Montana from the film Scarface. This little tux-wearing bat is quite adorable and I love the classy black and white colorway. I also really love that he’s packaged in a coffin; it just seems so fitting for such a unique figure. There’s no word on pricing yet, but you can say hello to a new little friend on Friday, November 11th when they will be released on Argonaut Resins’ webstore.

Erick Scarecrow of ESCToy just sent along info of his latest release, the Warhol Tiffani! This second colorway of Tiffani features Erick’s signature Warhol colorway of blacks, greys, and pinks, and looks quite stunning. Standing in at 6.25″ tall with a 1.75″ tall handbag to go with her, this is one pretty large figure. I love Tiffani’s hat and bag as they add quite a bit of life and who doesn’t love the Warhol colorway? If you want to add this resin set to your collection, the edition of 20 will be available on 11/11/11 at 10am EST in the ESCToy webstore for $125 with $10 shipping in the US and will most certainly make for an interesting shopping buddy. Now where’s my Warhol Crow Crow Bear?

Argonaut Resins has been working his butt off for New York Comic Con and I’m pretty sure he has more exclusives than any other person or company for the show. Now, he’s showing off his Dynamic Duo with the Jelly Empire‘s Jellybot and the fan favorite Mini Tuttz. These three chase combos will be part of 12 Mini Tuttz and Jellybot sets available at the show and feature the Mini Tuttz as Batman and the Jellybot as Robin. The rest of the sets are said to be clears and tints and will retail for $40 a set and these special caped sets will retail for $50 a set and are quite awesome. If you want to add some little superheroes to your collection, these will be available at Big Kev’s Geek Stuff‘s booth (#E7) on Saturday and Sunday from 2-5 pm and are sure to go fast; I mean it’s Batman… as a cat!

I have a lot of toys that I don’t really tend to think of as toys. I don’t play with my static figures, so they are definitely more sculpture than toy to me. But there are very few toys that I consider literal art–to see a figure that screams “I belong in a fancy art house” is rare. But Stefogorest definitely feels like pure art to me. It’s such a beautiful and whimsical concept, a stegosaurus with a forest on its back.
I’ve been keeping my eye on this piece for quite some time, but it’s only been resin editions so far. A cheaper vinyl edition was promised, and pre-orders are finally up! The first release will be unpainted green that will cost $75, though if you have the money you can get a handpainted edition for $125. The toys are made to order in Japan, so while production might take some time the buyer will get periodic emails updating them on the status. Stegoforest is 7.5 inches long and 4 inches tall, so be prepared to dedicate a large chunk of shelf to this beast! He also comes with some minor articulation in the front left leg and head so you can adjust his pose.
But that’s not all you get—each order, unpainted and painted, come with a mini 2.5″ Battle Damaged Acorn Warrior. It’s a frog with an acorn hat! Adorable! These are not vinyl nor are they green–they’re resin, and you can get yours in any color your heart desires, including glows and clears. Pre-orders run until October 31st, so get yours in at the link below!

We’ve been showing you all of Myplasticheart‘s New York Comic Con figures from the initial teasers to the reveals of Ghost Girl Glow, Kazuhiro Koguma, Sketchbot Variant 5, and Shawnimals mini Pork Dumplings, and now we have the latest reveal: Brent Nolasco‘s custom Leeroy C figures! Leeroy C is a Super7 vinyl figure designed by Invisible Creature and has been adored by fans since he was first released not too long ago. I love the Leeroy C figure and Brent’s classic colors and stripes are here on full display making for some gorgeous customs of an already great figure. If you want one of these for yourself, act fast as there are only 9 in this set of customs and they will retail for $80 each, a great price for one of Brent’s pieces, and will be available at Myplasticheart’s booth (#879) at New York Comic Con.

I usually don’t post customs here, mainly because they’re not generally available but a lot of it has to do with my interest. I’ve seen so many customs a this point that it takes something really special to make me go, “I WANT THAT.” Doktor A‘s two new Trikky customs definitely did that, and for the first time in a while I am feeling custom lust!
These haven’t been sold yet, and they’re set to go to the show Bewitching at Stranger Factory this Halloween. But Dok A’s customs are both expensive and sought-after, which means they’ll be insanely hard to get. I can only hope that these go to a good home, and that the new owner will take lots of pictures for us to drool over!
