If you follow The Blot on Twitter, then you probably know The Blot is a big fan of the Instagram app (even though my iPhone 3GS takes terrible pictures). So when I heard JC Rivera had created an Instagram app logo vinyl figure I was blown away! Such a simple idea and yet JC executed it to perfection! JC came up with the idea for an Instagram toy and did the initial sculpt himself, and then Scott Wetterschneider took over and digitally sculpted the figure. No clue if Instagram has any plans to produce this little guy, but I would buy one in a heartbeat! How great would it look on a shelf next to Twitterrific’s mascot Ollie!?!

Yesterday a pretty cool CrappyCat set was released that I think you’ll want to check out! Meet the Crap Stink Splasher, a character who only has two things on his mind: getting drunk and making waves! This set includes one Crap Stink Splasher CrappyCat, one Crap Stink Splasher FlunkMonkey and an 11″x17″ signed & numbered Splasher poster on 12pt uncoated acid-free paper.

This CrappyCat.com Exclusive Crap Stink Splasher set by VanBeater set has a limited edition run size of 125 sets and went on sale at CrappyCat.com yesterday, Wednesday, April 4th. However, there is one catch...this vinyl figure set is only available for a 48hr period that ends on Friday, April 6th at 2pm EST. This means you better get your orders in now or you may not be able to add these binge partying CrappyCat and FlunkMonkey vinyl figures to your collection.
Podgy Panda and Cris Rose have teamed up to create a truly awesome collaboration! Two versions of the same resin figure have been created, Cris’ robot panda chef Ramsay and Podgy Panda’s Podgonauts (cute animals in powered spacesuits), and both versions look incredible!
Podgonaut Edition A resin figures are from the Panda Exploration Corp, come dressed in Jumpsuit Orange, feature articulated heads and include removable domes. Each figure has a unique hand painted face and includes a laser engraved disc embedded in its chest. One lucky buyer will also find their Podgonaut comes with a super rare chase in the form of a little suited Monkey mechanic in matching colors and a rusty finish applied by Cris. Only 5 Podgonaut resin figures were created and each will retail for $130. These go on sale at Podgy Panda’s online store today, Thursday, April 5th at 18:00 London time.
Tangerine Orange Ramsay Edition A resin figures were designed to look like a panda. This was at the specific request of a chain of theme restaurants who wanted all their robots to look like animals while they cooked and serve their customers. Outfitted with a splash-guard to stop from getting prawns in the face and a jetpack, Ramsay was often in the air as each restaurant was a huge bio-dome, complete with trees, plants and running streams. Only 5 Tangerine Orange Ramsay Edition A resin figures were created and each will retail for $160. These go on sale at Cris Rose’s online store today, Thursday, April 5th at 18:00 London time. Cris also created a very limited run of 3 Dark Chocolatier Ramsays which will retail for $190 each.
