"Baldwin" actually started toy-life as a knitted plush Dolly made a couple of years ago, "Baldwin traditionally means "bold friend" but with his pink bottoms in this case "bald friend" is more suitable... LOL " ~added Dolly. And yes Dolly, every bunny should start wearing fig leaf! LOL (Sorry, in-joke ;p)

Toy-Review: Vinyl Cavey from A Little Stranger

VINYLCAVEY-01
VINYLCAVEY-GIFT VINYLCAVEY-TAG-FRONT
VINYLCAVEY-TAG-BACK

Cavey first started life as a plush designed and created by A Little Stranger?, and now transitions into a vinyl figurine, standing 7-cm tall, ever ready to jump into your toy-loving-hearts!

Featuring a sculpt by Ali Coleman, who added a slight fold in the finished vinyl, providing further character to the ambiguous critter. A further nod to the plush origins, is the embroidered fabric tag embedded into the vinyl figure's side, and a nice touch indeed. Kudos to producers Unbox Industries for making this seamless.

Header-card art is provided by Ralph Niese (for which one day soon I would have to decipher what/whom the character holding Cavey is, actually).

VINYLCAVEY-TURNAROUND-1
VINYLCAVEY-FOLD VINYLCAVEY-TURNAROUND-2
VINYLCAVEY-FABRIC-TAG-02 VINYLCAVEY-FABRIC-TAG-01

Four colorways exist, with BRILLIANT WHITE and CAVEY PURPLE currently available for purchase via HeyCavey.bigcartel.com at £9.00 each, whereas we'll have to wait and see where BLACK and PINK turns up at.

Palm-sized and adorable, with the body ever so slightly squishable (meaning, it can be cut open for customization, and not to hug it to sleep lol), and has a solid flat base for the figure to stand steady (unlike it's plush-brethren).

Personally, the "thing" for me about Cavey's "charm", is the sheer simplicity of it's aesthetics, especially where the plush figure is concerned. Sure there are numerous moments of "cosplaying-fun", but the simple ones tug at the heartstrings. Currently the white one which I own, is extremely adorable by itself, and I can not really imagine it to be too overly customized (although I have in my KIV-folders a custom-piece by Jay222 that defies this LOL).

Is "cuteness" the only path accessible to Cavey? With the advent of this vinyl editions, perhaps it opens up a whole new world of "possibilities", innit? We'll see :)

Germany-based designer Dust (www.dirtydust.de) showcases his new AlterEGO Ghost - made by CREO Design (www.cdtoys.co.uk) and will officially be released at ToyCon UK in April! Standing 7.5cm tall, and in resin, AlterEGO Ghost will be made available in two editions: BLACK and WHITE!

And that's not all, the "other" Series to be released will be the RAS2013 (black and white edition) standing 7.5cm tall and made in resin - time to create your own army, folks! I reviewed the original RAS2010 and loved it, so it would be exciting to see how the new edition stands up to it :)

dustXcreo_RAS2013

As well, here's a peek at an upcoming custom for his RAS2013 figure, shown below - whom comes with a thematic base "and shows the pilot climbing into the RAS, while a teammate holds the hatch for him, to get into the RAS cockpit…" ~teases dust. More pictures of the final custom when I have it!

The Coming of 'Mortimer the Mortician' by Brand Peters x Artoyz

MORTIMER-DRAWING

Brandt Peters reveals that "Mortimer the Mortician" vinyl toy will be coming soon from Artoyz Originals! Last seen as a blind-boxed-figurine from Kidrobot's "The Carnies" series (seen below) from 2010, Mortimer now comes upsized in a medium format (whatever that means, it is going to be cool lol), and comes with a toy straight-razor and toy bottle of embalming fluid. *EXCITEMENT*

And from the colored sketch above, looks like Mortimer will come in color (compared to the gray-scaled mini-series from KR), and from Artoyz's track record, there might well be different colorways for specific vendors, like Artoyz-exclusive, Circus Posterus-exclusive, Retail-version etc … purely my speculation, of course.

Carnies-Brandt-Peters-06

Also expect another upsized Carnies-figure made with 3D-Retro too (more info and images when that is revealed).

Retailer Edition YOUNG GOHST 'CAP GUN' Version by Grody Shogun x FERG

YOUNG-GOHST-CAP-VERSION-1
YOUNG-GOHST-CAP-VERSION-2

If you (like me) had looked on in awe and toy-desire at the YOUNG GOSHT figurine from GRODY SHOGUN X FERG, and not had the opportunity to lay some in your hands, fret not! For toy-absolution is close at hand! Available to retailers soon is this YOUNG GOHST 'CAP GUN' Version - featuring 3-inch tall Flat Black and bright orange Japanese vinyl, with a suggested retail of US$35 each - distributed by DKE Toys, so remember to go bug your fav retailers/vendors for availability! I know I will! MUAHAHAHAHAHA

The orange "cap" on a black gun is to show that the gun itself is a "toy", and not a real firearm, and is required everywhere! Well, perhaps not on air-soft guns hahaha
