It’s a mostly evil collection of Star Wars characters, but The Empire Muggs Back is for a good cause: created by artists, proceeds will go to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Thanks, Thorir!
We’ve seen lots of great urban vinyl, but Robotox’s VF-1 Skull Leader takes the cake; this hard vinyl Macross ‘bot actually transforms between Fighter, Gerwalk and Battroid modes.
MGS3’s Big Boss/Naked Snake gets deformed with this Zombie Snake vinyl figure; the camo and big blocky head are badass, although we’re blanching a bit at the $80 price tag.
Move over, Justice League and X-Men: these scientist action figures by Oddfellows are the real deal, with posed 2.5″ vinyl versions of Einstein, Tesla, Newton, Darwin and Curie.
Made for Disney’s Experiment 626 Tour, we’re digging everything about this Ultra Iron Stitch by Ultraman from the rivets down to the tribal patterns; it’s on display at DNM in Hong Kong.
Futurama’s “A Tale of Two Santas” is one of our favorite episodes, so we’re itching to get our mitts on this two-fer, which includes both the bad and the ugly: Robot Santa and Santa Bender.
Part Wolverine and part Creature from the Black Lagoon, “Midnight Snack” Muraida is clad in a black colorway with 6 articulation points; it’s limited to 200 pieces and goes on sale 11/28 here.
We’ve never thought of Mickey as menacing, but this Transformers x Disney mashup (available Feb. 2009) still looks pretty cool: it actually transforms between semi and robot form.
Alright, so these Transformers Mighty Muggs don’t actually transform, but we’re really digging Hasbro’s versions of our favorite Cybertronian robots; it’s a set of 4 individually packaged figs.
Designed by legendary artist Michael Lau (check out his Kubrick figures here), Juno x Soft Hard is commemorative set based off Hong Kong celeb Juno Mak’s “Lam Man Lung” music video.
Dynasty Warrior’s frenetic hack and slash gameplay comes to life with these sweet chibi-style urban vinyl figures; due to release in late Feb. 2009, you can preorder a box of 12 of them now.
We’re having a hard time choosing just one of these three Batman Uni-Formz urban vinyls; thankfully, you can get ’em in a limited-run “Statues Case” that includes six of the 8″ figures.
TFAW.com is having an incredible 50% off sale for their Star Wars Kotobukiya vinyl statues; to get the discounted price, click on the various 50% off coupons or enter SWKOTOS at checkout.
We’re only just getting acquainted with Claudio Sanchez’s Kill Audio vinyls; available in three versions, “Bloody” is our top pick and soaked in crimson goodness: DO WANT.
Blasphemy: we prefer Mecha to the original Godzilla: standing 11″ tall and amazingly detailed for a vinyl, Mecha Godzilla sports articulating limbs; no word on the laser eye cannon, however.
With arms longer than legs and a hot blue, black and violet colorway, Chaos Monkey is definitely our simian of the day. This rotocast vinyl is available now and limited to 1,000 pieces.
We really didn’t get Jamungo’s antisocial Crappy Cat until we saw his interactive Flash game. The 9″ vinyl yuppie cat sports a cardigan, an eyepatch, a can of beer and a six pack ring.
Coarsetoys’ Jaws Vinyl is available for preorder with a special slate colorway at Rotofugi; there’s a lot to like, from the overall styling to the skateboard, kicks and shark helmet.
Coming October 16th, we can’t wait to get our hands on this 15th edition 7″ KidReaper by Andrew Bell. He’s perfect for Halloween, with a fabric cloak, scythe and glow in the dark paint.
Dezeen has a sweet collection of Street Style Urban Gnomes; they’re made by London-based designed Vitamin and will show next week at the London Design Festival.
First there were his Minigods, and now Marka27’s hitting us again with his Killa Instinct Vinyls. You can preorder this 10″ figure, which comes with a bolt cutter, gas mask and spray can.
If high school bio and anatomy got together, you’d get Emilio Garcia’s Jumping Brains. The limited edition RGB brains are already sold out, but DIY 3″ resin brains are coming soon.
Something (perhaps unearthly) about the spikes sticking out of Hiroto Ohkubo’s 8.5″ Inc bear speaks to us; the 85 in Japan have been sold out, with only 3 left at Tokyocube.
Nada”One’s KID666 is now available; these demons with altered Adidas sneakers are sold in batches of 30; so-called secret versions of 13 come with a limited edition drawing.
“Insanely” detailed, this 1:6 scale, 12″ Bank Robber Joker comes with plenty of goodies, including two heads, a clown mask, two guns, gloves and a grenade duffel.
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.
