Thanks to Gilbert Yam at the Garden (Palm)er (Facebook Groups), we have snaps of the CRAZYCHILDREN SERIES CC32 S.F.M.L. to gawk at, as well as prices for considerations, with S.F.M.L. going for HKD699 (approx USS$90 / SG$119) while NY FAT is priced at HKD999 (approx US$129 / SG$170). Have a relook at the pieces featured here previously :)

Also revealed is the existence of a "Lucky/Secret" X'MAS BAG (thanks for the pic Terence Tang) priced at HKD399 (approx US$51 / SG$68), for which Gilbert scored a MINI MR SHOE!


And if you thought this was all what Michael Lau had to offer at CSBOOTH19 for the duration of Toy Soul 2014 (Dec 19-21, 2014) … Get ready for the Saturday releases of the following colorways! AND a (possible) Garden(Palm)er edition????

Prototype for EDENLOST by Gums Production x GLITCH Network Seen @ #ToySoul 2014


Gums Productions shares an image of "EDENLOST" - a collaboration project with Indonesia's GLITCH Network ("God Complex"), with an armored figure, now on display at Toy Soul 2014 (Dec 19-21, 2014) in Hong Kong … and hey, I am always down with mecha-armors and such coolness! Further images and info to be updated when I have them!

CHAPPIE Prototype Action Figure by Threezero (Seen @ #ToySoul 2014)


Threezero debuts a prototype of a CHAPPIE figure from the upcoming feature film from director Neill Blomkamp ("District 9" & "Elysium")!

I am honestly pretty excited for this as this is one of those rare times you'd actually see a product before the more premieres, and not months/years after the movies have left the cinema screens (but you're alright Matrix APU lol). And especially since I am looking forward to watching this flick (movie trailer and synopsis featured below), it is also a serendipitous situation where a "toy" of it will be made, from a fast-rising maker of licensed 1/6th-scaled collectible figures too! An alternative to Hong Kong's Hot Toys, I am keeping my eye out for this incarnation of "Chappie"!

"Every child comes into the world full of promise, and none more so than Chappie: he is gifted, special, a prodigy. Like any child, Chappie will come under the influence of his surroundings – some good, some bad – and he will rely on his heart and soul to find his way in the world and become his own man. But there's one thing that makes Chappie different from anyone else: he is a robot. The first robot with the ability to think and feel for himself. His life, his story, will change the way the world looks at robots and humans forever." ()

L.M.S: Last Man Standing – Gabriel in 1/6 by Threezero (Seen @ #ToySoul 2014)


Making a display appearance at Toy Soul 2014 (Dec 19-21, 2014) is the "L.M.S: Last Man Standing – Gabriel" from Threezero!

Since our last post (circa SDCC'14), the 14" tall "Gabriel", along with his cat "Gizmo", has been given some color to match their comicbook/graphic novel counterparts, as illustrated by Creator Daniel LuVisi. Stay tuned for further developments of this bounty hunter / paladin soldier!




"Matrix APU" by Threezero (Seen @ #ToySoul 2014)



Making it's display debut at Toy Soul 2014 (Dec 19-21, 2014) is the "Matrix APU" from Threezero, with this painted sample looking to be sized 20" or less? More probably in 1/12th scale, alongside Titanfall figures, which would accommodate 6-7" tall articulated figures / pilots for these "Armored Personnel Unit", seen in "The Matrix" movies.

No further product images as yet tho, meanwhile, here is a video of them in action from the movie:


A "curious" product to introduce / release, IMHO - but perhaps it might well be more of a vehicle to showcase Threezero's mecha-builds and weathering/paint apps, for which they excel both in their products, and for those with 3A Toys.


The Coming of BUN BUN by Brent Nolasco

"I just finished sculpting my new Bun Bun figure. The size of him is "6. He going to be a two piece pull out of resin. I sculpted him out of Ave Epoxie Sculpt. Wearenottoys is going to pull the figures for me." -shared Brent Nolasco.
Brent is building up a decent menagerie of creatures, including Hunter and Beast, with Bun Bun being the most aesthetically "accessible" Nolasco-product to date, IMHO. Looking forward to further updates and developments :)

WIP for "TEQBaby DeSTROLLER" by Wetworks x Quiccs

#AgeofUltron #Avengers in 1/6 by Hot Toys @ #ToySoul 2014 plus Thanos in 1/6


Happy with seeing the Hulkbuster on display at Toy Soul 2014 (Dec 19-21, 2014)? How about the rest of the AVENGERS from Avengers: Age of Ultron in 1/6th-scaled, made by Hot Toys?

Costume designs for the Joss Whedon-directed feature film is revealed in the Hot Toys display at the inaugural event in Hong Kong, including HULK's new "stretchy pants" (technically NOT an "official name", but I will always remember it as such heehee), along with detailed looks at CAPTAIN AMERICA's and HAWKEYE's. Also we have THOR and BLACK WIDOW, and rounding out the core group, we have IRON MAN Mark XLII (Revealed here) … And oh yeah, there's THANOS in 1/6th too! *OMGOMGOMG*


CAPTAIN AMERICA


THOR

HAWKEYE

BLACK WIDOW

HULKBUSTER @ #ToySoul 2014 (from #Avengers: #AgeofUltron)



Tony Stark's HULKBUSTER armor - as seen in the trailer for the live-action feature film AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON - can be seen at Toy Soul 2014 (Dec 19-21, 2014), specifically via the Hot Toys display arena - in both a 3 meters tall 1:1 scaled display AND a 1/6-scaled Action Figure (Prototype) ! *OMGOMGOMG*

I'll just shut my trap and let the pictures do the heavy-lifting … ALL pics via TOY PEOPLE! *OMGOMGOMG* (yes, I've said that already, and it still deserves to be said! *OMGOMGOMG*)





KIEFER by Prodip Leung for #ToySoul 2014


So okay, this is pretty awesome, IMHO … Remember that "tribal" looking character mascot for Toy Soul 2014 (Dec 19-21, 2014) - designed by Prodip Leung (pic above-left)? Well, "he" has a name; "KIEFER", and he's also be available as a limited edition doll for purchase at the event this weekend! Limited to 400pcs, priced at HKD$450 per.

I like this character also because it is not a "cutesy" chibi mascot like most events are portrayed, and as well caters to a somewhat Asian-tribal culture and heritage that feels more "enriching", IMHO … I don't know how big this piece is tho, but I WANT ONE!


""KIEFER" is actually carrying a child with a face, hand holding the stick, four to play. The kids like you toy lovers, we are full of innocence, love to "play." The three-dimensional, is a well-known toy company How2Work use retro soft toy production technology, and with cloth cloak, faithfully rendered the original design. Elaborate shape, with the grand return of the toy event is absolutely unique memorable, quite worthy collection of memorabilia!"

1/6 Teddy Boy by ACG Toys for #ToySoul 2014



TEDDY BOY from ACG TOYS adapts a young "Cham Ho Nam" from the manhwa into 1/6th-scale, ready to greet attendees at Toy Soul 2014 (Dec 19-21, 2014) - Booth C16!

Two editions will be made available at the venue: "Lun Yu Country Autographed" edition and "Signature" Edition, both with limited 200pcs in stock made available, both priced at HKD 1,280 (including poster). My google-translation seems a bit muddy here, but you are free to investigate further here on FB :)


(Above: On display at Toy Soul 2014)

Folks familiar with the "Young & Dangerous" movie series from Hong Kong might or might not have remembered the "prequel" of the gangsters circa 1998, with Ho Nam being played by actor Nicholas Tse ("adult" version was played by Ekin "Noodle" Cheng lol), which unfortunately did not match the verve of the adult-series, IMHO.
