Comic book author Chakib Hazaimia shares with TOYSREVIL news of the action figure of the main protagonist (Chicago) of his next comic book “INGLEPARK”, being made in collaboration with Chinese toy designer Hidden Foo (www.behance.net/Hidden_Foo / www.facebook.com/HiddenWorks / www.instagram.com/hidden_foo). And while the release of the toy itself (seen in promo video above and here on Facebook) is still pending, the comicbook can be procured somewhen soon on www.inglepark.com.


ABOUT THE TOY: "Based in Beijing, China, toy designer Hidden Foo gives life to Chicago, by creating an exclusive collectible action figure of the main character of INGLEPARK.

Go, Go, Power Rangers! Toy & Film Reveals! Mighty Morphing Power Rangeeeeers!

POWER RANGERS BANDAI

A slew of POWER RANGERS newsery to be shared here today (because it’s a Sunday and I like to have “fun” and geekout a lil’ more than usual on Sundays … and also because the Power Rangers TV theme song has been suck on my mind since the morning URGH :p), including looks at the feature film currently in production, a fun fan-art, and toy-news!

First up, we take a look at the recently revealed image of Limited Edition Tokyo Vinyl® Mighty Morphin Power Rangers DINO MEGAZORD (above), as designed by TOUMA, and to be unleashed at New York Comic-Con 2016 (Oct 6-9) at the Bandai America booth #1628! Limited to 500pcs available in the U.S. and standing an oversized 8.5 inches tall, with a SRP of US$60 per. (www.bandai.com/nycc2016).

If you folks remembered TOUMA designed a slew of Power Rangers for their offshoot brand “Tokyo Vinyl” not too long ago… I only own the Red and Blue Megaforce Rangers … :)

As as-yet-revealed “First Movie Toy New York Comic Con Exclusive” from the feature film will also be made available on-site - in a quantity of 100pcs - each priced at US$40. I have no doubt POWER RANGER movie will be invading NYCC!

The Coming of 1:1 scaled GUSTAV by Brandt Peters x VTSS Toys


Here’s a peek at “GUSTAV” from Brandt Peters x VTSS Toys, with this unpainted beast sized at whopping approx 27" tall (1:1 scale)! Brandt also mentioned that there will small exclusive editions (unconfirmed what materials they will be tho… although I’d imagine the large sized ones to be in fibreglass?) and that Kathie Olives ALSO has a mega piece as well!

VTSS mentioned the “blank” shown here is for Brandt to paint, and wonder if this’ll be the “master”? Or a one-off-painted custom? EXCITED either way!

Fans better start setting raised both space to display, and cashmonies to snag these critters! Stay connected on IG @brandtpeters and @circusposterus, and of course @vtsstoys :)

Rato Kim’s BOXCATS at #TTF2016


Earlier in the day I featured what BoxCats South Korean artist Rato Kim will be available at the coming New York Comic-Con 2016 (Oct 6-9) … THIS post however, is about what she will be offering folks at Taipei Toy Festival 2016 (Oct 7-10)!

Let’s see … we have BreadCat, WatermelonCat, PeachCat, Pumpkin Cat, WoodCat, AND A TAIWAN SPECIAL as yet revealed!

I think she needs to make a special “takeaway box” to fit ALL the BoxCats because I don’t think they’ll hang around for much long on the display shelves at the BOOM!BOOM!POOM! Booth A-29!

Damn I wanna go TTF…!

#PublicGarden Consumer Trade Show 2016 @ Suntec City Convention Center (Sept 24-25)

Funny how I relate to things depending on their surroundings/environment … as I perused the entire Public Garden Consumer Trade Show at Hall 403 in Suntec City Convention Center today, my eyes were somewhat focused on looking out for (what else) “TOYS”, and as well indie art and illustrations done made multiple merchandize, in the Singapore climate of survival, and realizing with what I picked up (showcased below, of course), might have been somewhat “lost” amidst a thronging event such as STGCC2016, where similarly themed of all shapes, sizes and forms - much less color - bombard and battle to attract your attention!

Somewhat like finding THAT one sole stall in the night “pasar malam” (temporary/makeshift “night market”) that sold toys, amidst all the makan, telephony, and faux-antique stalls! Then finding out none of the bootlego and bootleg toys suit your tastes, even though they cater perfectly to your financial ability … *cough*.

All of which begs to differ, a question I’d love to ask ALL artists and artisans out there = “What Makes Your Work Stand Out Amongst Everyone Else’s?”

As for “what earns you more money?”, well, might be a while either round of Q&A … anyways…

Public GArden 2016

Scroll down for some snaps of goodness I snagged at the said Public Garden Consumer Trade Show, which opens 1pm-7pm on both Saturday and Sunday, and ends Sept 25th, 2016. Level 4, Hall 403 :)

WHAT-IS: "Public Garden is an alternative to big-box enterprise with a free spirit. Each project aims to provide surprising benefits to the public, in both tangible and intangible ways…

…Public Garden Consumer Trade Show is held a couple of times a year and features hundreds of top labels in design, art, fashion, vintage, beauty, dining and publishing. There is no restriction on industries. Anyone with an interesting brand concept can apply to join Public Garden Consumer Trade Show."
(www.public-garden.com)

The art of illustrator Munich AKA Satsuma Orange (satsumaorange.squarespace.com / Etsy / Facebook) had me with her “family portrait” depictions of Studio Ghibli characters (BOUGHT!) and most notably characters from Wes Anderson movies! Excitedly I picked “The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou”, while others called out to me … alas it was only afters that I realised there was a smaller-sized card pack which contained ALL Wes Anderson movie characters AAARRRGGGHHHHHH … next time, next time…

Meanwhile, I’ve snagged some snaps off her Instagram @thesatsumaorange to share "Wes Anderson Film Characters" here on #popcornX and "Studio Ghibli Anime Film Characters" here on #iNotOtaku! :)


Another discovery were the products from MM Mrkt (www.facebook.com/MMmrkt), featuring Star Wars themed character, vehicular and android/robot reproductions in concrete! And while I am aware that this material is gaining traction through the globe (ok, at least the South East Asia region :p), this is the first time I see and hold the item(s) so close!

Barring the bigger pieces - because seriously I need to add to the already bludgeoning hoard in my kingdom - I walked away with a trio of head-sculpts, featuring Darth Vader, Boba Fett and a Stormtrooper, all finished in a metallic silver sheen, snaps of which I show here, although not being able to fully show the material.

You can folks can head on over to #starwarsallday to view more images swiped from their Instagram @mm_mrkt, and hit them up for goods if you so please! I would say “mention TOYSREVIL” but they might have zero clue, as I didn’t introduced myself hahahaha


#DarthVader in concrete by @mm_mrkt - with all three pieces finished in metallic silver FTW!

Another table which caught my attention, where I’d not been able to walk home with any merch from, is Chris Chew’s (Instagram @artof.chris). His printed illustrations of old school Singapore stuff was sublime, and I had my heart set on the “old school snacks” series - which alas he had not for sale then!

The current trend of retro-lookbacks is nigh interesting for me, not just because it is a “new” trend or “discovery of the past”, but because I lived it! So it is nice to see the “old days” made “new” again for the new generation (dammit I sound like THAT uncle telling stories around the TV during Chinese New Year visitations lor!).


The full write-up can be read on #GOLOCALSG - where I, f course, go on and on, and.. you know the blog-drill hahahaha (:p).

“Public Garden Consumer Trade Show” exhibits Saturday September 24th and ends Sunday September 25th (1PM - 7PM). Venue is Suntec City Convention Center Hall 403, Level 4. Find out more and sign up for their mailing list, via their Facebook and www.public-garden.com.
