Yesterday, Lulubell Toy Bodega released this awesome teaser image on its Facebook page. Yes, all it is is a few words, but it’s the meaning behind those words that has The Blot super stoked. Skinner is teaming up with sculptor Shikaruna and Lulubell Toys to release his first ever vinyl figure! The Blot’s got no clue what this super secret figure is going to be, but you can be sure if the Skinnman is involved you know it’s going to be epic! More details to come as they leak out…as soon as on April 20th.

Motorbot has been working in overdrive these past few months getting his new line of Tiny Teeth minfigures ready for release, and they’re finally here! After a limited release a few weeks ago, Motorbot is bringing the heat with a huge run of blind bagged Tiny Teeth resin figures. This first official release will feature three different sculpts: the two eyed Treature, the cyclops Lout and the all new Meathead (he’s the cyclops with ears).
Each 2 inch Tiny Teeth minifigure was hand cast in solid resin and features a custom doll eye (or eyes in the case of the Treature). These will go on sale later this week for $15 each at the Deadbear online store. While you will get to pick the sculpt colorway, these Tiny Teeth figures will be sold blind bagged (meaning the colorway will be completely random). Rumor has it there will also be 10 randomly inserted Glow in the Dark (GID) Tiny Teeth figures included in this release! The Blot can’t wait to see how those turned out.
Why So Curious? by Andy Hunt
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited The Blot got when I saw this new Joker themed t-shirt from Threadless. I honestly haven’t thought of Curious George in years, but the minute I saw this new mash-up design combining Curious George with the tagline “Why So Serious?” (from the Batman film The Dark Knight) I knew I had to have it. Come on, who wouldn’t want a Curious George t-shirt where that cute little monkey is given the Joker treatment on a bright yellow t-shirt (chosen to honor “The Man with The Yellow Hat” naturally). While the idea in and of itself is nothing new, I love the devilish cuteness of the “Why So Curious?” t-shirt.
Powerful ancient gods and contemporary musical forces mix it up to form the new Shadow Serpent 8 inch Dunny by Marka27, blending an iconic platform with Marka’s popular mini-god aesthetic. Bright green and adorned with slithering serpents and native markings, Shadow Serpent bears 3 decorative mini-speakers sculpted into its head and a printed speaker on both the back and belly. The serpent influence comes from Marka’s Mexican heritage, pulling inspiration from the ancient god Quetzalcoatl, a feathered serpent deity worshipped by the Mayans, Aztecs and other indigenous cultures.
The follow up to Marka27’s 3” Dunny Azteca II figure is stunning, and what makes it even better is Kidrobot will also be releasing a 1 in 6 black variant chase Shadow Serpent, which features white and pink graphics. Marka27’s first 8” Dunny has a limited edition run size of 1,500 pieces and goes on sale Thurday, April 21st in Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com and specialty retailers for $70 each.
To coincide with the release of the 8” Shadow Serpent Dunny, Marka27 will be making the Kidrobot rounds with a 3 city signing tour. There will be a pre-release signing on Wednesday April 20th at Kidrobot New York, followed by Kidrobot Los Angeles on Thursday the 21st and then ending the tour at Kidrobot San Francisco on Friday, April 22nd. All events will take place from 6-8pm, and the first 50 in line at all three stores will score a FREE limited edition Shadow Serpent poster!
