Adfunture x Ledbetter: Samhain Teddy Troops
Adfunture, the internationally based design team, has teamed up with Joe Ledbetter to knock out these spooky troops. It seems a logical progression for Joeâ€™s off the wall forest friends to be featured with the militant teddy bears. The Samhain (Halloween) edition stands 10â€™â€™ high and is probably the most detailed Teddy Troop to date. These guys will be an instant collectorâ€™s item, limited to 500 pieces. You can grab him at $100 US (shipping included) starting on Oct. 31 at http://www.adfuntureworkshop.com/shop.html
Dr. Bao & Spive – Thriller tribute
Dr. Bao and Spive are two awesome guys that never cease to amaze me. This three figure set was thrown together in under a week for a design competition. The model bases used were Raving Rabbids from Ubisoft. The guys must have ended up looking a bit like MJ by the end of it, given all the late nights of detailing. Oh the thrills, the thrills!
Nathan J x Bigshot Toyworks x MTV Canada
This is kind of weird but Nathan Jurvicious, of Scary Girl, has recently released a series of Kaiju that were produced for a mysterious MTV Canada project called Fauna. I was really surprised to know this being Canadian and all. Iâ€™ve still never heard of this Fauna thing. Not that I really want my MTV that bad, but this project is still pretty cool. The whole set is available at www.super7.com.
3 Ft. Da Minci @ Tim Tsui Solo Show
These could be the apes to destroy all apes, vinyl apes at least. The two models were made for Tim Tsuiâ€™s first solo US art show at the Mixi-Bang! Shop in Cali. Lots of fun stuff was featured, including tin-robot style Mncis and various â€˜heroâ€™ Mncis like Batman or Kamen rider. Also were special show teeâ€™s by GrayOne.

Feelgood Project, Nanospore video
This isnâ€™t quite vinyl but itâ€™s vinyl related. Itâ€™s a video animation made by Nanospore, fine purveyors and designers of Qeeâ€™s, models, t-shirts and other fun stuffs. Highlights include a toilet paper roll crushing on a piece of poo. It doesnâ€™t get much better than this. Originally released at the FeelGood Project 2007.
