We’re big fans of M. Heislers custom Slobots, so we’re really digging this heavily modified Moody Slobot; he’s made for shark hunting, hence the fins and oxygen tube.
Talk about sealing the deal: Resistance 2 is getting a Collector’s Edition which includes an awesome 5.5″ DC Universe Chimera Hybrid figure, art book and bonus DVD.
Chinese mythology buffs (you know you’re out there) will love this Lei Gong, God of Thunder vinyl. A bird in a Charlie Brown shirt with a bomb and flip flops: works for us.
This badass zombie-killer t-shirt is available at 200 Nipples, who sells their first shirt for $1, the second for $2, and so on. It’s a pretty cool concept, just be sure to get in and buy early!
We featured Keith Poon’s WW2 Sharky Vinyls earlier; Toyqube is now selling 54 custom, one-of-a-kind Sharkys. Our favorites are the Reactor88 and Ultraman customs.
Marka27’s 16″ tall Minigods have an ace up their sleeve chest — these limited edition vinyls also double as speakers, with a mini-jack and battery-powered internal amp.
Make every day Emergence Day with these amazingly detailed Gears of War action figures by NECA. Series 2 includes Fenix and Santiago, but we most like the Theron Guards.
The Oversized Darth Vader vinyl is named thusly because it’s double the size of the original 8″ collectible, towering at roughly 17″ in height. It’s limited to a run of 600 Anakins.
The Residents is a set of vinyls by Steven Cerio, named after an avant-garde band of the same name. There are only 100 available, ranging from painted to glow in the dark.
Hot Toys’ Iron Man Mark III reads like an ultimate action figure wishlist: 36 articulation points, sleek metallic paint, and 3 swappable hands. Sweet: the eyes, heart and repulsor hand light up.
Michael Lau’s SK3 trio is an homage to three Stanley Kubrick films: A Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket and 2001. Each includes accessories and an extra set of hands.
Shin Tanaka’s T-Boy is an exceptionally well designed vinyl, from the crowbar arms down to the sneakers. We particularly like the graphic ringer tee and that fact that his arms rotate.
Brian McCarty has just released his Juke Bot, a “throwback” to the analog era. We really like the iPod-esque track wheel which has been swapped with an LP; only 500 will be made.
We can’t get enough of The Simpsons, and judging from the successful launch of Toy2R’s Simpsons mini figures at Kidrobot LA, we’re in good company. Also available at Fugitive Toys.
Amazing colorways, Kaiju styling and a limited edition, glow in the dark Plutonium edition mean we’ll be emptying our wallets for Atomic Mushroom’s Combat-R Zero vinyls very soon.
Kerberos Saga is one of our fave alternative histories (Japan loses WW2 to the Germans), so we’re pumped about this 6″ Protect Gear by Revoltech, due to release in September.
Unfortunately, we came across the Student edition (above) of House of Liu’s awesome Shaolin Monk vinyls too late. However, scope out this equally cool bronzed Rotofugi version.
Obsessions with sharp, pointy things aside, we like Swords for its simple, silhouetted style. Made by freelancer Ryan of A-OK Mart, the tee is limited to a run of 75.
This heavily customized Yoka bear is mad expensive, but anything with a head like a Sarlacc gets our respect. We also like the retro/steampunk accents on the feet, ear and eyes.
The Dark Knight‘s 1:6 scale Bat Pod is about a hundred types of awesome, with machine guns, a grappling hook and light-up headlights. Available at the end of the year.
GAMA-Goon is the latest to join GAMA-GO’s stable of critters; it’s actually an eight-year old design. 99 will be made in chrome, with one made out of gold. They come in the retro tin seen above.
Urban War Fair’s Mini Skully comes in at 4″ and is ideal for cubicle jockeys; the little vinyl skulls ward off evil spirits, annoying coworkers and nosy bosses. Buy pre-painted or DIY.
Limited to 1500 pieces, this statue puts Samus’ famous black and red Phazon Suit in a pretty sleek pose. It looks especially hot in the dark with 25 LEDs and a mirror base.
The Master Chief and Grunts is up on eBay at a cool starting bid of $1,600; auction ends 8/17. Made out of sterling silver, it’s a 1/9th scale statue and is completely one of a kind.
Coming this September 13th: Colorado-based team CYPHER13 will be releasing SOFT&FURRY at Plastic Chapel. CYPHER13 produced everything from the sculpts to the final rotocast.
Released at the 2008 San Diego Comic Convention, this limited edition Red Baron TIE Fighter is a nod to hot rod culture. Coming soon: Darth Vader’s Star Destroyer dragster.
