Kelvin Chan AKA RocketRaygun will not be boothing as a individual artist this year (since I've met him at STGCC 2010), but instead has joined forces with the folks at Kinetiquettes (where he is one of the 3 principals, duh) and can be found at Artist Alley Booth No: AA6 at the coming Singapore Toy Games & Comic Con (Sept 6-7, 2014).

He will be releasing a series of exclusive prints for STGCC featuring new art (digging the Ninja Turtle shown here), along with his sketchbooks and figures.

LUMI on IndieGoGo


From Moscow, Russia, Maximilian shares with TOYSREVIL the just launched new campaign to raise money for a new toy production on crowdfunding site IndieGoGo. It’s called LUMI – do it yourself designer toy platform, resin toy made in Russia.
"There are two versions offered now, D.I.Y. Blank white and G.I.D. Glow in dark, plus there is a lottery running, and a contest will be starting next week for the best LUMI custom design, templates will be posted on indiegogo campaign page. The winner receives one LUMI toy. Also, this LUMI toy will be at the first ComicConRussia 2014, which is in Moscow, 2-4 October." -adds MAAX.

And while the light-bulb as a head reminds me of ouip by delitoys of Korea, the body is anything but … and hey, "bright ideads" need to start somewhere!

Lumi stands 5.3" tall and features articulated arms, while it's body is "compatible to lightbulbs with E27 (socket), so you can easily use a lightbulb instead of its head" = which can be somewhat fun for multiple customization, no? :)

Check out more on the indiegogo-page here http://igg.me/at/lumitoy, and stay updated on the Facebook Page :)

Pop! Television: The Walking Dead Series 5 from Funko


Truth be told, I lost my attention and desire for The Walking Dead by the middle of Season Two, after a spectacular binge-watching of Season One, and haven't made it back since … but then again, the "toys" never failed to interest me, even though I might not kow the depth of story for it LOL

Funko has been steadily doing pretty decent with their Pop! Vinyl-adaptations, and to help usher in Season 5 (returning on US-screens on October 12th), comes the latest series of character adaptations featuring both survivors and walkers, including their "first" pull-apart figure! *YEW-SWEET*

Available in September, so check in with your fav retailers for pricing and availability :)

Two Custom KR Mascot Bots from Infiniterabbits

"I've recently painted up two custom 3" Kidrobot Bots based on iconic album art/T-shirts from my youth -- Kid Misfit and Kid Pleasures. Both are available in my online store." shared Thomas /Infinite Rabbits/
And while the paint-app is certainly recognizable as IR's work, the "insane eye-twitch vibe" (or so I call his works ;p) is missing here, and somewhat "refreshing" to see his range, IMHO.
