The geeks are back behind the counter with some awesome? [maybe] street art figures, new Glyos compatible PVC figures, Samurais and other "specimens" of the art toy genre.


Show Notes

April Event at 3DRetro:  Kidrobot x [adult swim] x 3DRetro Release Party

Review: Manga Realization Meisho Samurai Iron Man Mark III
The popular Meisho MANGA REALIZATION series re-envisions hit characters as samurai of old. The second release is Iron Man Mark 3, as envisioned by the talented Takayuki Takeya. Iron Man’s high-tech armor is rendered as ancient samurai armor, with details down to the ornate scroll-work on the breastplate and rivets on the plating. Clockwork, steam-punk style jetpack and flintlock rifle-esque cannons enhance the fantastic atmosphere of the design. The 180mm figure comes with two types of optional hands (left and right sides), a katana, and a jetpack.

Review: Shark Toof 12″ Cigarette Pack
SHARKTOOF: I had been obsessing about guilty pleasures and how essentially we are supposed to feel shame for those pleasures. Graphically how can I make other people reflection this issue? The silhouette of a cigarette pack opened is unmistakable. The cigarette itself is a loaded object; controversy, rebellion, big business, toughness. I wanted to publicly challenge people to address their own guilty pleasures.

Review: Mega Bit Pheyden and Bit Figs Set
Mega Bit Pheyden – 3″ tall Glyos compatible PVC figure with articulated arms. 3 parts total.
These sets are from an early production sample run – total quantities are a fraction of other colors produced and are among the most rare of all Bit Figs, never to be produced again! Includes all characters from Ninja Series 1 and Animal Series 1.

Review: Jermaine Rogers’ Veil: Specimen 72
‘Once upon a time, there was a thing that couldn’t ignore what it was seeing. And so everything fell apart.’ Finally, the long-awaited new figure from the Dero/Veil universe of artist Jermaine Rogers is available! The Veil: Specimen #72 (‘I Think I Am Losing My Mind’) vinyl figure measures 10 inches tall and comes in a box featuring artwork by Jermaine Rogers. An art figure made for these times, the regular colorway of this piece is from a limited edition of only 500 pieces.
