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!

One thing many people don’t know about artist Paul Shih is the fact that he lives in New Zealand, and as such, some of his designs are influenced by the culture there. One piece in particular is the MW figure, which is based upon the Maori Warriors native to there, which he has now released in a sleek black colorway. This black metallic colorway is a mix of multiple different paints for a unique glossy/shimmery style that can also be jet matte black in other lighting. This 8″ tall figure is quite intricate and is Paul’s largest piece to date and is available now via his online store for $160.00. Also, for those waiting to hear back about the Sushi Kaiju Dalea Edition, the lottery has been closed and winners will be notified soon. Are any of you readers thinking of adding this gorgeous warrior to your collection to protect all of your other figures?

Artist J*Ryu just posted these pictures of his newest custom, a piece entitled Forbidden Love Child, that is truly stunning. This custom of Emilio Garcia’s Jumping Brain figure answers the age old question of what if Kermit and Miss Piggy of Jim Henson’s Muppets had had a child together. This is also a departure from J*Ryu’s typical style in that it’s much more realistic, and I really love the risk he took here as it really paid off; this creature looks real! If you want to see this piece in person it will be on display at the Brain Evolution show at Toy Art Gallery in Los Angeles starting this Friday, September 16th. My only question is, would this ribbit like a frog or squeal like a pig?

The other day we showed you a teaser from Erick Scarecrow of ESCToy of his contribution to Toy Break‘s auction for Big Kev’s Geek Stuff, and now we have the full reveal of this amazing collaboration with Monster Kolor. This 1/1 Crow Crow Bear is dubbed the Cosmical edition and features an amazing glossy multi-purple swirl design with black accents. I really love the amazing paint job on this already great design of Crow Crow Bear and this is truly one piece I think people are going to be getting in bidding wars over. If you want to add this piece to your collection as well as help Big Kev’s Geek Stuff get back on the ground in the process, it’ll be available on September 22nd during the auction.

Last year at NYCC, Stephen and I picked up two of the exclusive Greads by LYS0L that were at Tenacious Toys‘ booth. It seems like they stuck around for a while, as we picked them up on one of the last days and they lingered in his online store for a few months. But recently, releases have really picked up, with the Greads selling out in less than ten minutes!
Stephen and I have always been fond of the original oil slick Greads we own, but some of the newer designs really caught our eye. Why? They’re clear resin! So we raced to grab a few of them, and with the help of an awesome collector we’ve acquired 3 more of these little guys in the past two weeks!
