“Everlusting Tales: The Sultry Snow White” by Djohan Hanapi × Mighty Jaxx!

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.

Joe Flores × Iconoclast Toys’s “BS Doom w/ Cape” Bootleg Simpsons Goodness!

Last year, we announced that Iconoclast Toys’s Manny X partnered with Joe Flores to add “B.S. Doom with Cape” to the brand’s ongoing “(B)artist Series”, a line of ‘evolved’ bootleg Bart Simpsons figures. And now this design, modelled after the iconic look of rapper MF Doom, who himself based his look on comic villain Dr. Doom, returns in a brown skin tone versus the original’s Simpsons yellow. Sculpted by Adil Muschelewicz, cast in resin by Trashbury Grafphixcs, each hand-painted & packaged by Manny X, these limited pieces will be available on Friday, July 28th, 2017 at 12pm Pacific time for $65 each in the Iconoclast Toys online shop and this will be a 48-hour open run release, so you have the weekend to snag one!

*REVIEW* Kidrobot’s “Powdered Toast Man” vinyl figure!!!

Quick, man! Cling tenaciously to my buttocks!” Honestly, who says such a thing?!?! Well… none other then the only superhero that faces backwards when he flies, POWDERED TOAST MAN, and thanks to Kidrobot, he has been brought to life in vinyl form! We got our hands on this rad figure before he is set to release and gave him a spin (literally) around… and seeing as we are big fans of the Ren and Stimpy show, this figure brought back a ton of fond memories watching the show… and we hop Kidrobot has other figure planned, because PTM is awesome!

Standing over 8″ tall and coming in a window ox adorned with cartoon artwork, Powdered Toast Man is proud and erect, posing with one hand clentched into a fist and resting on his hip and the other arm and hand reaching out as if he were accessing the situation and saying “leave everything to me”! The figure has no articulation but is the perfect balance of collectible and fun… and even though there really is no playability, he’s so playful… if that’s makes any sense at all.

Who is this stranger from another land? Why does he walk among mortal men? What is his mission? Where can we get a pair of undershorts like his? Who is this man of toast?!” What makes this figure really cool is the different paint applications as well as the materials used to create him. Themajority of the figure appears to be cast in vinyl, where the feet/booth and hands/forearms appear to be cast in clear blue pvc that’s bee embedded with a fine silver glitter… giving this portion a really cool effect. The head and underwear also appear to have been “powdered” with some glitter as well to give them the appearance of the glistening magical superhero that he is. Oh, and the sculpted face with such an fantastic expression… yeah, we are impressed with the paint and quality on this!

Set to release from Kidrobot and other designer toy retail locations on Friday, July 7th, these will retail for $50 a pop… and is worth every bit of that, he’s awesome… nay, he’s “TOAST-A-RIFIC!” and we totally recommend you all pick one up… and be on the lookout for the previously announced SDCC “Wheat” version! Oh, and bug Kidrobot to make other figures as we need both Ren and Stimpy… as well as Log!

VIDEO REVIEW: Vincent Scala’s “Mickey Monster”!

I got excited when professional illustrator Vincent Scala announced his “Mickey Monster” Kickstarter campaign, turning his most popular image into a designer toy. Having backed this vinyl sculpture from the get-go, I couldn’t wait to receive this 6-inch tall vinyl rendition of a nine-eyed, fang-toothed, and horned Mickey Mouse, having the Disney mascot hold a scared Minnie aloft in the style of King Kong and Fay Wray! But, once I got it, this vintage feeling piece definitely was marred with some quality control issues at the factory level. To find out what I liked and didn’t like about this piece, click below and watch my newest video review!

“Emblem of an Abstract Riot no.2” resin sculpture release by Patrick Wong!

Patrick Wong is back with another rad release… and it’s his latest resin sculpture entitled “Emblem of an Abstract Riot no.2“. The artwork further explores the theme of failure in protest, riot, and revolt common in many of the art toys and customs from the artist in recent years. It is also the followup piece to the 2015 released resin sculpture “Emblem of an Abstract Riot” (posted HERE) – but instead of an old school Disney themed hand, this one takes on the Simpsons. Cast in solid urethane resin and features an extinguished wick within a molotov cocktail, the piece riffs on The Simpsons cartoon with various elements appropriated directly from the show. “Emblem of an Abstract Riot no.2″ measures 6″ x 6″ x 3.75” and is up for grabs HERE right now for $200 a pop!
