THE BEST Toys

Simpsons Mini-Figures

Simpsons Mini-Figures

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.

Combat-R Zero Robots

Combat-R Zero Robots

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.

Jamungo’s iconic Sqube combines the best of both worlds, with a skull-motif and straight, rectilinear design. A recessed, cubical notch allows you to interlock multiple Squbes.

Using a radio-controlled E-Flite Blade 400, retired marine and present-day UAV consultant Dave Herbert gives a new meaning to “fly fishing” with the video above. Warning: circus music.

Revoltech Protect Gear

Revoltech Protect Gear

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.

Zombie Hunt Lego Diorama

Zombie Hunt Lego Diorama

Nothing beats an old fashioned zombie attack to get the blood pumpin’: this Zombie Hunt Lego diorama by Justin Vaughn is inspired by Max Brooks’ Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z.

House of Liu Shaolin Monks

House of Liu Shaolin Monks

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.

Doktor A Custom Yoka

Doktor A Custom Yoka

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.

Hot Toys Bat Pod

Hot Toys Bat Pod

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

GAMA-Goon

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.

MechRC Robot

MechRC Robot

Three years in the making, the MechRC is a programmable robot with 17 independently controlled servos: in short, it can dance the funky chicken without breaking a sweat.

Urban War Fair Mini Skully

Urban War Fair Mini Skully

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.

Metroid Phazon Suit Statue

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.

G.I. Joe Mighty Muggs

G.I. Joe Mighty Muggs

Hasbro’s latest Mighty Mugg vinyls feature G.I. Joe and will launch in November. Boy are these stirring up Saturday cartoon memories; Snake is still the most bad-ass out of the bunch.

The Master Chief and Grunts

The Master Chief and Grunts

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.

This Blood Diamond version of Da Warrior by Tim Tsui is all kinds of awesome. Features a removable helmet, spray can, extra head and a crystal eye. Limited to only 200 pieces.

Bride of Stan

Bride of Stan

Travis Louie, Pressure Printing and Hi-Fructose have teamed up to create “Bride of Stan“. The intaglio print sits behind bubble glass in a hand-casted resin frame with solid steel back.

Puzzle Calendar

Puzzle Calendar

Puzzle Calendar’s 77 Lego-like tiles include dates, days, blanks and icons. Truth is, we can see ourselves wasting considerable man-hours building our calendar to be just so.

SOFT&FURRY Vinyls

David Lanham’s Zog

David Lanham’s Zog

David Lanham is one of our favorite artists (you may know his work at Iconfactory), so we’re thrilled to see his vinyl Zog at StrangeKiss. Also available: Murder Zog, a Lanham/Kozik collab.

Steampunk Robots

Steampunk Robots

We’re personally getting tired of the Steampunk genre, but we still love these robot models by The Builder’s Studio. They look metallic, but these retro tech creations are made out of wood.

Droplet Vinyl Toys

Droplet Vinyl Toys

Just like the name says, Droplets are drop-shaped collectibles. Sold blindboxed, they’re hand-signed and hand-numbered, each with their own personality. Black is the hardest to find.

Legos In Space

Legos In Space

Above: snapped by a weather balloon shortly after it popped, 18.5 miles up. Tethered to it were several Lego projects built by students, profs and hobbyists. The projects parachuted back down.
