New Customs from Kasey Tararuj AKA One-Eyed Girl


Kasey Tararuj shares with us 5 new pieces done for Clutter Gallery's "Color Theory" show which opened Sept 13th, all of whom are available for purchase here.
"Dorkosaurus "Dorko" Rex and Neandersloth are my prehistoric pet and owner. Dorko is a custom Raaar and Neandersloth is made from some random micro munnyworld figure. I'm obsessed with dinosaurs so I'm really excited about them, especially Dorko's dumb looking smile.

Porcey the Horsie is a Custom Tokidoki Unicorno. I've been itching to make a carousel horse for years so i'm stoked to have finally done so.

Bizmo and Buddy are a Custom 7" and Micro Munny. A personal favorite. Camo Cameron is a 4" Custom Foomi, my silly little chameleon. Neddy Needlenose is a 4" Custom Rooz, my cute little chubby hummingbird."

Print Review: Gotham Royal Flush prints from Noval N. Hernawan


I've had the honor and privilege to own one of the last Gotham Royal Flush print sets from Noval N. Hernawan released at STGCC2014, and it is without hype I exclaim the lushness of the set! From the print quality and matt surface laminate/finish on these thick cards, to the simple artist "branding" (at back of the card/print) is quite simply; "class". letting his art and the DC Comic characters speak for themselves.

FYI: Gotham Royal Flush print sets has since Sold Out :)


Noval will be in Jakarta the next few days for Popcon Asia 2014 (Sept 9-12) -specifically on Friday and Saturday only at the IUSCC booth - where he'll have his comicbook illustration prints, "HATCH" printed sketchbooks and other splendidness I have come to truly like and collect, IMHO. Drop by, grab some goodies and commission some sketches, and tell him TOYSREVIL sent ya!

Black & White Giant Larva Skulls for #TTF2014


Of the myriad of wants and toy-desires I had for STGCC, was the Giant Larva Skull from Skull Man x Gum Productions spotted at the Genesis4 booth, but alas was not for sale and escapes my grasp … now comes word that a pair of Black and White Giant Larva Skulls will be released in Taipei Toy Festival (Oct 9-12, 2014), in "very limited number", and I think they are "cruel" indeed for making this possible, especially for someone who nearly had it back in SG… no price nor quantity revealed as yet, and I bid you all good luck in scoring one, or both.

FYI: Released August 1st, the first metallic skulls figures on vinyl were priced at US$45 (Asian region) US$65 (Rest of the world) for a 8 inches long x 6 inches tall figure (price includes shipping).

KAWS:CLEAN SLATE @ Harbour City, Hong Kong (September 18 to October 19)


KAWS:CLEAN SLATE launched September 18th @ Harbour City, Hong Kong and exhibits thru October 19th, 2014. The highlight of this exhibition is the 7-meters tall sculpt seen here, and is as interesting as the mystic of KAWS' work is on popular culture, with this seemingly a commentary about societal life of a Companion holding unto to smaller Companions … and I am reaching the shallow depths of my analytical aspirations for which this blog is not known to be LOL

Enjoy the pictures … the internets will be filled with more of them soon :)
