Like clockwork the new Dunny series is leaked, and the biggest problem I have when the designs are leaked by Kidrobot is that a 2D illustration never does them justice. People are going to love/hate them for months until the series drops, and... [ read more ]
2012 will be over in a few short hours, and after being inspired by the TOYSREVIL post of Andy's top 10 purchases of 2012 I decided to write my own list. This is the first year that I actually purcased a custom toy, in fact... [ read more ]
Outsmart Originals, fronted by Kevin Winnik, has already release t-shirt designs from Jon-Paul Kaiser, Rsinart, and PocketWookie ... two of which I own. The fourth in the series comes from one of my favorite customizers Sergio Mancini,... [ read more ]
Thanks in part to spankystokes.com and the wonderful flippers on eBay it should come as no surprise that this series is being released. Most of you have seen all the designs in the Dunny Apocalypse series from Kidrobot.... [ read more ]
Kevin over at Outsmart Originals has been teasing their EXTENSIVE artist roster for the last few weeks leaving many of us to speculate what the hell empire he's building over at Outsmart. Up on his instagram account he just posted a photo of what appears to be a Jon-Paul Kaiser design on a sweatshirt. Not sure if the clothing is the entire brand or just a piece to go along with toys too. I'll definitely corner Kevin and some of the artists to find out more in a few days at NYCC. In the meantime follow Outsmart Originals over on twitter at @outsmartkevin to stay updated.... [ read more ]
As NYCC fast approaches, Jon-Paul Kaiser posted a WIP of his final customs for his new show ... a R2D2 custom on a 5" Mini Sprayee Qee. We've seen a variety of peeks over the last few weeks of his show A New Hope opening on Thursday October 11th at 6pm over at Yoyamart. Though knowing Jon, these peeks are just a small sample of what is sure to be ridiculous event. With the exception of this R2D2 reveal, and his Boba Fett reveals, most of the figures appear to be more minor characters which leaves be to believe there will be a big reveal of the main characters at the show. When NYCC wraps up be sure to walk south over to Yoyamart and check out this show as Jon will be in attendance.... [ read more ]
Jon-Paul Kaiser is making another NYCC trip across the pond for a variety of reasons, including his solo Star Wars themed show 'A New Hope' over at Yoyamart on October 11th. Another great reason is to hock some merchandise over at the Tenacious Toys super booth #3121, including this exclusive Mini Bear Qee from JPK. Jon will be making a signing appearance but no word yet on date or time from Benny. I think we might have to try and put together a super guide to print-out grouping all the events, releases & signings .... hmmmm.... [ read more ]
Kevin Winnik, who's been running the USA division of Toy2r has parted ways and started a new company called Outsmart Origials. No word yet on what they'll be producing, we have seen posts on some artistst that Kevin will be working with in this new venture. A few weeks ago they showed a design from Jon-Paul Kaiser and now popping up on my facebook feed is this image featuring a design by Frank Mysterio. Below I've included a mission statement direct from their facebook page, in the meantim follow their updates at facebook.com and hopefully I'll have more info after talking with Kevin at NYCC....

So there's about 5 weeks until NYCC is upon us, and I'm looking forward to hanging out with some old friends and finally meeting some online friends in person at the Designer Toy Awards being hosted by the master of suck The Sucklord. The public voting has wrapped up and the DTA board are voting on their picks for the remaining categories. I thought I would make it interesting by making some guesses on who I think will win in each category. Like one of those oscar parties, except there will be prizes and no one will care what everyone is wearing.... [ read more ]
Like you didn't need another reason to be happy that NYCC is just around the corner. After some rumors circling around for a while it looks like it's now official. Jon-Paul Kaiser will have his first solo show on U.S. soil during NYCC 2012 over at Yoyamart opening on October 11th and featuring a variety of Star Wars themed customs. Hopefully Jon will leak a few our way so we can drop them in the library as the show gets closer. Can't wait to see it .. any chance you can sneak me past the line?... [ read more ]
