Miskha Keep Watch Dunny Has Arrived In SG


I just did something which I (think) I never had done before … I called up my fav "plastic crack dealer" to reserve a Miskha Keep Watch Dunny. I don't do reservations for toys, because it is simply a dangerous path to thread, and I know how dangerous it is personally (You think "Toys R Evil" is a gimmick name? LOL).

Now available in Ozzo Collection are the 3" Polar Edition and Kodiak Editions of the Miskha Keep Watch Dunny. And while the Polar 8" Edition is a Kidrobot exclusive, the brown Kodiak 8" is not, and by the weekend, he will join my Mishka Keep Watch Labbit, and that prospect really toy-xcites me! LOL

FYI: Do check in with your fav retailers on pricing and availability.


PRESS: "Mishka’s fabled Keep Watch character makes its triumphant return and this time it’s taking no prisoners. An entirely new sculpt, the Bad News Dunny is engineered to destroy as 8” and 3” Kodiak and Polar Editions. Sometimes the bear eats you, sometimes you eat the bear, and in the case of Mishka sometimes you wear the bear as a suit!"

#INKTOBER2014 Feature: Jeremy Dale

WHAT: *#INKTOBER is essentially an art challenge whereby folks draw an ink illustration each day for everyday in the month of October. In this series of blog-features, TOYSREVIL will showcase an artist each day(-ish) and their works for Inktober 2014 - Along with a lil' Q&A, of course!*

WHO: Jeremy Dale
WHAT: Artist/Animator
WHERE: valleydweller.com
SELECT STYLE for INKTOBER: "Brush pen, mostly. Moved from PITT to Pentel halfway through."

TOYSREVIL: Why did you start Inktober for 2014? Did you do the previous years?
JEREMY DALE: I love bandwagon hashtag events like this. It's good motivation to do something every day. I only started Inktober in 2013, but have done some similar events before that.
TOYSREVIL: Is there any specific "theme" you are going for, for this year's Inktober?
JEREMY DALE: Participation is my main theme usually. Looking over my current progress though, I guess this year there's a lot of game/movie references, and a couple mash-ups.

*During Daily Draw February this year on Satellitesoda.com.

I focused on a narrative that I was going to watercolor, but only ended up sketching most of them. I thought about inking all those drawings as part of Inktober, but didn't want to break from the watercolors.

TOYSREVIL: What are you hoping to achieve with executing this project? Do you intend to finish it?
JEREMY DALE: Almost every day is an exercise in self-critique. Every drawing has tangents or tenuous contacts or just bad silhouettes. I'm trying to do more pencil planning before getting into inks to fix that stuff, but it's really hard to eliminate everything. I'm doing most of these during my commute, so it's like an hour of pencil/ink on a train, with some cleanup afterward usually, and that doesn't grant me a lot of time to get super involved in anything, so I do less planning and just diving in and noting the lessons and failures for later.

I'll probably have most of them for sale at my booth (818) during DesignerCon 2014 in November this year in Pasadena, CA [shameless plug].

TOYSREVIL: No worries Jeremy, "shamless plugs" works for me, in fact I encourage it! LOL

Folks can check out Jeremy's Inktober sketches in his dedicated Facebook album here, or head on to his dedicated Flickr album for 2013 & 2014 Inktobers!

Above: Store front before paint/Below: After paint:)

I first heard about the WOOT BEAR gallery in my interview with Frank Kozik at STGCC (which unfortunately remains unedited as yet, my bad), in which his description of the gallery and it's intent, brought about a pretty surprisingly profound excitement in the hobby for me personally, which frankly wishes I could be there in the shop physically, if only for the promise of fun and enrichment for the community to rub off on me, even so little as a tinkle :)

Avengers: Age of Ultron Teaser Trailer, Screengrabs & Poster


Woke up this Thursday morning, pretty early too, as I had an early night. Sat down to have a log conversation with mum too, which lasted a good 3 hours, to which I then logged online, and discovered the fury that which was the release of the AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, apparently 6 days before it's intended scheduled date! The thing is, on regular days, the very FIRST thing I would do in the morning, is log on to see what has happened while I slept (timezones be darned) ... meanwhile, I'll go watch it for the 5th time ~ kthnxbye!


Here are essentially two points to consider:

Got Ultron:






Got Hulkbuster:

Worry Beans by Taylored Curiosities

"As you may know, I have always offered a selection of art toys that addresses anxiety issues and worrying. I had my plush line of Feelings and now I am introducing "Worry Beans".

Feeling Autumnal I have adorned the first batch with little acorn caps. Each set comes with a Worry Bean (each one hand sculpted and painted with an 'aged' face effect, so no two are alike), a Worry Beanlet (waiting to grow big enough to wear it's own acorn hat), instructions, stickers and a badge (both with original illustrations on), all gift wrapped and ready to give to someone special or someone who needs to worry less.

I think anxiety and worry is something we don't always think about and actually a lot of people struggle with it every day. Keeping a Worry Bean nearby may help in small way. Available here in a variety of shades."
- shared Penny of Taylored Curiosities
