"From bootleg toys to terrible "art" of dubious quality, there is no type of "artistic" medium I won't shamelessly exploit in my mission to bring a little bit of terribleness into collector's homes far and wide!" (Instagram @specialedtoys)


TRUMP WARS ARCADE CABINET by Timebandits x Special Ed Toys x Carlos Flores are each priced at US$45, in an edition of 25pcs, with each one is signed and numbered by Special Ed. So what exactly the heck is it?
"So Special Ed and Timebandits met this guy Carlos Flores who makes the coolest vintage arcade cabinets that are 3.75" scale. They decided why not make one for Darth Trump to play? Edition of 25. They come boxed with a full color graphics card on top."

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” - Behind The Scenes & Character Posters from D23


Go behind the scenes of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, with this "behind the scenes" featurette debuting at the “D23” Disney Expo over the weekend. This is the most visual images seen thus far, since the first teaser (and the unfortunate passing of Carrie Fisher), and no doubt leave fans excited and full of speculation! I’m personally waiting for the “what did we notice” video breakdowns to come online LOL

Hey, Im not knocking any of it, as this is what fuels the lore from generation to the next, IMHO. “Star Wars” is not just about what you saw/see/will-see in the screen in front of you, but of the memories everyone (might) have with it, the dreams fulfilment of many, and the “hopes” for the few, to make a difference in the world, in the universe, even if it meant a video breaking down a featurette, IMHO :)


Featured here are also 6 x character posters (courtesy of @starwars on Twitter), with each individual bathed in red. I am liking the restraint and color-choice for SW8 thus far, a splendid concoction of red, black and white accents - Hey! Just like the TOYSREVIL logo-colors! Heh.

Directed by Rian Johnson, Star Wars: The Last Jedi AKA “Episode 8” in theatres December 15th, 2017.

Unlike many kids, he grew up just a few miles from the Vegas strip, it's neon and glitz looming over the city. He graduated with honors from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California and currently lives and works in the Los Angeles area with his wife, artist Esther Pearl Watson, their daughter Lili and two French Bulldogs, Mr. Pickles and Gherkin."

SANTO VADER by Carlos Ramirez (@C.ramirez2323 / Facebook) features a hand made a wooden figure - by Carlos - which was cast in resin.

When he was 4 years old, his father showed him a bootleg copy of The Empire Strikes Back. Little did he know that this would start Peter on the path to being at the forefront of the bootleg toy movement. Today, Peter's artwork is highly sought after by collectors and has been in galleries worldwide. He has inspired and mentored countless other resin artists to follow in his footsteps. What started as a hobby collecting toys has grown into a full-time career for Peter, letting him do what he loves best every day, play with toys."

YOCLOPS by Little Lazies for DKEToys @ San Diego Comic Con #SDCC2017


Available at DKE TOYS’ booth#5045 at the coming San Diego Comic Con 2017 (July 20–23) is “YOCLOPS” by Little Lazies, and a right decent bargain, if you ask me! Find out WHY:
"This is one of the most special exclusives DKE has ever had. Each piece has been hand sculpted by Leah Lester of Little Lazies. No two are exactly the same but they are so close to one another that it's kind of hard to imagine that they aren't cast and she made 50 of them!They are signed and numbered on the bottom of the figure and carded in a package she designed and are only US$55."

A post shared by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on

ARTIST BIO: "Little Lazies are weird, little, clay creatures made by Leah Lester, a monster maker living in Seattle, WA. How did it all start? Leah was a full time cake decorator who very much enjoyed sculpting out of edible paste for the cakes she created. One sunny day in June 2010 she said to herself, "I want to make a monster for the top of this cake!" So she did just that... Soon after, her friends started encouraging her to create these characters into clay; something that they could keep for a lifetime. So with that, Leah bought some clay and with lots of practice, experimenting, character developing and imagination her monsters evolved into what they are today - the Little Lazies!"

WORK-IN-PROGRESS:


(Above) PRINCESS
- Figure Dimension: 6W x 4.5L x 20.5H in cm
- Wooden stand: 6.5 cm
- Worldwide Limited Edition: 25pcs
"When designing, the first thing that comes to my mind is how to present the characters with a new twist, giving them a new breath of design, (while still) maintaining my style, and yet people will still recognize (the characters). This is the main challenge for me. Second to that, are the coloring issues…" - shared WanKok.

(Above) SAND BANDIT
- Figure Dimension: 9W x 7L x 15.5H in cm
- Wooden stand: 6.5 cm
- Worldwide Limited Edition: 25pcs

Posted by Play toy, stay youthful. ηŽ©ηŽ©ε…·ηš„δΊΊδΈδΌšθ€。 on Saturday, May 20, 2017



(Above) GOLDEN DROID
- Figure Dimension: 8.5W x 3.5L x 22.5H in cm
- Wooden stand: 6.5 cm
- Worldwide Limited Edition: 25pcs
"…For instance, the Golden Droid. It poses some difficulties because of it’s “gold” color. To capture the right kind of gold is not easy. I have tried different approaches of painting, tested with various brands of Gold colors. Adding to the challenge is the weathering effect on him. (I had never intended) to have him looking "shiny and brand new". I want him to look a bit (worn-out).

On the designing aspect - as you can see - the abdoment of Golden Droid. Instead of plain wires going around, I had purposely made them look like “intestines”. I like gory stuff :)"
- revealed WanKok.


(Above) LONG EAR
- Figure Dimension: 5W x 6.5L x 18H in cm
- Wooden stand: 6.5 cm
- Worldwide Limited Edition: 25pcs

(Above) MERCENARY HUNTER
- Figure Dimension: 6W x 4.5L x 23H in cm
- Wooden stand: 6.5 cm
- Worldwide Limited Edition: 25pcs
"The main challenge this time is different from Golden Droid. It is the issue of proportion. The very first design is very different from what you see now. I disliked the initial design and scrapped the whole sculpture. The proportion just did not click with my taste. I changed the head, making it way smaller and elongated the body. I dressed him with a cape covering half his shoulder, all the way back. With the cape flowing, it has a feel of a "monk" hunter." - shared WanKok Leong of 1000Tentacles

Finn’s hand-blaster in the coming “The Last Jedi” instagrammed for everyone to post about LOL (thanks to lrmonline.com for the headsup) in this continued overage of the “Star Wars” film, not longer after their Vanity Fair shoot too!

Scroll down for full video clip of the gun - no doubt to be a “toy” (if ever “they” are still selling guns in the toy-aisle, or at the very least a hands-on-reference for eventual cosplay adaptation (innit?) - and for a peek at the Vanity Fair cover, featuring “Poe”!

Proud owner of Finn's blaster ! Thanks to @riancjohnson !
