"X-Men Days of Future Past" poster illustrated by Tom Whalen, as part of his solo show, PULP MENAGERIE! (Opening reception images) available in 2 editions on sale Thursday via details tweeted @MondoNews.

Makes me wonder and wish if comicbook-adapted live action movies would ever have an illustrated poster, instead of straight-up live-action stars in costume … but of course this is just a geek's fantasy, innit? My fantasy anyways :p

#BigHero6's BAYMAX Disney Motor from Takara Tomy

A photo posted by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on


And while I've been contemplated getting the all-white BAYMAX mini bus/van model vehicle from Takara Tomy (released some time ago, I know :p), I'd spotted a NEW colorway edition of the car from the "Disney Motor" series, featuring a metallic deeper red seen as Baymax's armor in Big Hero 6! The purple color and mask-white accent is fun!

Available at Toy'R'Us in Tampines Mall in Singapore, it should be priced the SG$9.95 to $10.95 range … still contemplating getting the mobiles tho, but now I NEED BOTH of them LOL

P/S: Apologies is the images are not crystal sharp, as I had snapped them from behind glass doors with my iPhone3 :p

PORTSSOUL by Michael Lau


Launched May 26th in Hong Kong is the PORTS1961 store - which in itself is not necessarily something TOYSREVIL would bother with any given day, except THIS day also saw the unleashing of a new collectible figure from Michael Lau! In collaboration with Milan Vukmirovic of Ports 1961 menswear, we had previously seen the "ghost sheet" that over the character, and now we have images of said character since named "PORTSSOUL" - both as a collectible figure and a 9-feet tall sculpture.

Will attempt to update on product availability when they are revealed … Meanwhile, more images from IG @michaellau :)

Go snag the first figure to be released from Coartism x Blitzway here on www.coartism.com … and by "figure", I meant the 7 inch tall PVC art toy collectible seen here with the lady on her back, and in her hands.

Priced at US$160.00 per, the pre-order period begun May 1st and will end on May 31st.

#GameofThrones themed arts show "Where the WILDLINGS at" @ Glitch Singapore (Opens June 19)

EVENT PRESS: "From King’s Landing to the Iron Banks of Braavos, the regal world of Game of Thrones is both beautiful and deadly. From Essos to Westeros, travellers have come forth to paint tales of Adventure, to spin portraits of Kings and Queens long gone, and maybe indulge in a bit of Revelry. Each one tells an individual story, maybe to inspire, maybe to deceive. You’ll never know what to expect, so watch your back, because Winter is Coming."

40+ artists from Indonesia and Singapore have come together to showcase their unique renditions of "Game of Thrones" - the book + television series that has, and is still sweeping modern civilization - in an art show titled "Where the WILDLINGS at", launching June 19th at Glitch Singapore (188-8 Tanjong Katong Road).

RSVP via the Events Facebook page, and check out the WIP from Tell Your Children's Deon Phua!

The Genesis of "Munny 500" - Custom Toy Show in Germany


Besides working as a visual artist, a private school had asked Manuel Heischel AKA CikCuk to take a lectureship for art at "adam olearius schule", for which he is currently involved in this year.

Working with 5th grade students, they are introduced to a new art form: "Art Toys", with Kidrobot Munnys sponsored by a toy store from Germany, Think Pink Celle. WIPs of their work are shown here, and as well more HERE on FB. The finished pieces will be exhibited (tentatively scheduled) in June - the show will be called MUNNY 500 - with one of the partners of the school a bank called Volks und Raifeisen Bank.

"so far we finished the basic undercoating with spraypaint from auto-K, real spraypaint for cars and they give a really cool texture, effect and layering of colors if you mix them up. the kids chose them by their own and based the colors on their concept of the each custom. the theme is totally free, some choose super heroes, animals, action, horror, like what they wanted to do. I kept it open just to let it flow and to let them explore the new media." -shared Manuel Heischel.
"MUNNY: is based on the introduction by me and the drawing process based on the printed out Munny pattern you find in the net. That was the starting point for the kids to define their custom design.

500: its a play, 5 for the grade 5. and 00 for b ( second letter = double 0/00) so in the end 500= 5b :).

Furthermore the whole exhibition is a charity for the kids and the school to collect money, 50% for the 5b and 50% for the school so we can do another custom show next school year, and our plan is to raise 500€. = MUNNY 500. We have 18 kids plus myself (I will support a custom too). We chose a bank to hold the exhibition to get the charity attraction into the right place."

TOYSREVIL Reviews Frank Kozik's Heathrow The Hedgehog


I've had an opportunity to paw Frank Kozik's new blind box series of vinyl Heathrows and spew some of my own impressions (in the video above), and as well share some images here, with MORE on my FB. I got mine at Ozzo Collection in Singapore, as well you could check in with your fav retailer(s) for availability. SRP for each box is US$10.


"Heathrow lives in the Magic Forest and isn't really happy about it. In fact, he hates it, along with just about everything else. Or so he claims, although we have the sneaking suspicion he's just a little bored."

ThimbleStump Hollow Color Teasers


Coming from Cardboard Spaceship this summer is the ThimbleStump Hollow blind box figure series, featuring characters from Amanda Louise Spayd and Chris Ryniak, teasers of which are shown here. Expect 9 characters to collect, with a planned July sale.

Sculpted by Scott Wetterschneider, resin prototypes of the "ThimbleStump Hollow" characters were on display at SDCC'14, with the final vinyl versions to be sized 3-inches tall. The colors shown here are pretty interesting and hardly palette hues I "normally" would have associated with either artists (well, maybe more Spayd less Ryniak :p) … can't wait to see what happens next!

RIM PATROL UNIT DROPCLOTH: "23 and 87 the first robots known to go awol, they left their corp during a clean up job on a Martian incursion off the coast of New Zealand. They were later found dug in on the coast of Taiwan, how they got there and why is still not known! How they could autonomously leave their surrounds and make way to another country is of great interest to the Earth Coalition, some believe their programming has self evolved or at the least new levels of self awareness have surfaced as part of unknown programming? The WAR EVOLVES. Now part of the Shitty 9 corp!"

[ More images HERE on FB ]
MDL HAROLD / MARINER 4TH DIVISION: "The Sole surviving robot member of the Noachis Defence League which saw the EARTH DEFENCE FORCE drop 100 Large Martin from the IRON PANDA division on the city of Noachis. The battle for Noachis was a turning for MARS where all ongoing negotiations were cancelled. And the MARS ALONE edict was passed that saw MARS annex it self completely from Earth and forge a independent future. This of course was not seen favourably by the EDF! The war continues!"
