Halloween is just round the corner and Brick Baby “Maxilla” can’t wait any longer to throw on his costume and head out for some trick-or-treating! There’s countless costume ideas for Brick Baby “Maxilla” to choose from but it’s a no-brainer that he went for a XXRAY-inspired skeleton suit that will definitely make Jason Freeny a proud parent! Even when Brick Baby’s signature yellow body is covered by his Halloween suit, his protruding umbilical cord gives him away almost immediately. Follow Brick Baby Maxilla as he goes from door to door, collecting as many candies as he can to satisfy his growing sweet tooth! This will be up for grabs as an exclusive to STGCC 2017 and can be found at the Mighty Jaxx Stand: D3 during the convention!
Last night, Scott Tolleson posted to his Instagram the photos that you see below with the caption “Drop off at the magic factory. #crackhead #whatsnext???“… and from the looks of it, this appears to be a larger version of his most recently released “Shard” Dunny. Now, how do we come to that assumption? If you look at the photo below, you can see in the bottom left hand corner it looks like Scott’s hand holding said Dunny… and if that’s the case, this is MUCH larger then his previously released 3″ SHARD. Also, from the back of the head, the cracks look much bigger and more defined then the previously released smaller version… now, this is only speculation on our part, and the header image above is a photoshopped version of his smaller 3″ design that we whipped together just for this post.
In any case… we are really excited to actually find out what this could be, and what size?!?! Is this an 8″ version or did Scott meet right in the middle with the newer 5″ size of this classic platform. More will be revealed in the near future, but at least we have this image to drool over until further info is released!
Many famous fairy tales, whether we like to admit it or not, always contained at least a veiled reference to sexuality. And, of course, there have been many artists over the years that have made those alluded to elements more prominent, such as the work of Djohan Hanapi. Collectively referring to his work as “Everlusting Tales”, Djohan’s illustrations are reminiscent of the Disney-fied renditions of these female characters while still remaining wholly different, and I don’t just mean the fact that they rarely have clothes on. Or are found in various sexually awakened and aware ‘positions’. The very style of the linework is completely his own. And while he’s been creating these for years, it seems like the time is finally here for him to get a sculptural rendition of one of his designs…
Based on his “The Sultry Snow White” character, Mighty Jaxx have revealed the above as “a quick look at what to expect for the upcoming release”, implying that this illustration will be the basis for a designer toy rendition. And while her nudity is apparent, those looking closely might notice that the infamous poisoned apple from the story is in the picture, though being consumed in a way that I’m fairly certain the Brother Grimm wouldn’t have written.
Ever since the “DR3AD REFLEX” event was announced, we’ve been yearning for more information on this narrative that promises to create a “conjoined pocket realm” wherein the various “worlds” within Ashley Wood‘s F3ACTORY division of threeA “will collide”. And now we’re being teased with the “next exciting chapter” in Woods’s worlds with the announcement of “BRNZ MSTR TK”, who is simply given the description: “They brought me back to hunt on a new world!” We’re told this will be a roughly 12-inch tall, 1/6th scale figure and that it is the figure that was revealed during the USVENTURE event (pictured below), but we may have to wait until August 31st, 2017 — when its released on BambalandStore.com — to find out for sure…

While most Americans might not recognize the TV show title Beast King GoLion, children of the ’80s will probably recall the heavily edited and re-assembled version of this Japanese animation, known here in the States as… Voltron! Featuring lion-shaped fighting robot starships that could merge into a giant Super Robot named Voltron, which the upcoming Wootron exhibition at San Francisco’s Woot Bear Gallery (1512 Haight Street) pays tribute to. With nine talented artists having been gathered from “various corners of the universe” to present their spin on this iconic series, pictured below are contributions by (clockwise): Jerome Lu, Zeb, HEALEYMADE, Scott Wilkowski, and Big C. Opening on Saturday, August 26th, 2017 from 6-9pm, those able to attend should go because, as Juelz Santana pointed out, “together we stand, divided we fall, united we form Voltron, and take on all”.
