STAPLE DESIGN x ADFUNTURE PRESENT: ‘BELLATOR COLUMBIDAE’

leave a comment »

New from Staple Design comes a physical manifestation of their popular and pugnacious fowl character. Bellator Columbidae literally means “fighting pigeon” in Latin, and an angry big guy he is indeed. Created in collaboration with toy-makers extraordinaire Adfunture Workshop, this figurine is so large (nearly a foot tall) that he has to be stabilized by his extensive tail feathers. Accessorized with his own fitted cap, Bellator Columbidae is limited to 100 pieces and is available now at CONCRETE.

TOY WAR BETWEEN FATHER & SON

leave a comment »

Remember when you could still spend days enjoying yourselves with little green plastic soldiers who can’t do jack, from an outsiders point of view it probably didn’t look all that impressive. But to us, it was real and that was all that mattered. Flying tanks, godzilla dogs and giant babies with laser eyes, it was all good. Now this father and son have recreated one of these battles, but as seen through the eyes of your 6 year old self. Sit back, enjoy the movie and spend the rest of the day reminiscing the good ol’days.

VALENTINE’S 2011 BE@RBRICK

leave a comment »

Medicom Toy has released two be@rbricks in 100%, to celebrate Valentine’s day 2011. One inspired by chocolate and the other

Two special editions of Be@rbrick have been released for Valentine’s Day, 2011.
One Valentine’s edition is covered in chocolate, a dripping chocolate print. It has a Happy Valentine Heart on its chest, that looks like a sticker and is about to peel off. On its back, it says “Happy Valentine’s Day 2011″ in calligraphy writing.

The other seems to be a contrasting version of last years Valentine’s Be@rbrick, sporting an all-over pink heart print on a GID body.

Get ready to see these arrive at Concrete any day now

Kidrobot has teamed up with Matt Groening on the Simpsons 2 – featuring another selection of Springfield’s colorful citizens.

Grandpa Simpson (below) makes an appearance as a mystery figure complete with reading spectacles and shriner hat accessories.
Also, we have managed to restock on the very last boxes of Simpsons series 1. So if you’re looking for that Itchy to match your Scratchy, now is your final chance. All are available now at Concrete.

KIDROBOT X FAMILY GUY LEAKED

leave a comment »

Simpsons did it first!

Dunny Club spotted a photo of Kidrobot’s Family Guy mini series over at Big Bad Toy Store who is apparently taking pre-orders. This is apparently due for release in April. We can confirm that the lineup shot is legit (though really pixelated…), not sure about the drop date.

DUNNY 2TONE SERIES

with one comment


Now in stock at Concrete, in even smaller amounts than usual. Kidrobot comes out with their latest series of their treasured Dunnys. The name says it all, 14 brand spanking new designs by 13 internationally renowned artists (i.e. Baseman, Angry Woebots and Huck Gee) with their only restriction being, all designs must be made in black, grey and white. Result is a very clean series, with an more mature feeling to them as opposed to the regular series. Where any other Dunny series comes in boxes of 25, these mono-colored little beasts only come in boxes of 16, so quantities are even lower. If you’re looking to pick these up, don’t wait on it. Hit the jump to see more pics of this series. Read the rest of this entry »
