by
Magitarius has just announced a new series of custom Oreion figures - 14 in all - that they will be revealing one at a time, beginning tomorrow! In case you aren't familiar with the Oreion figures, they are HUGE alien art toy figures that are a combination of vinyl and resin. We've had really positive feedback from collectors and artists who have acquired one of these rare collectibles.


Here's the copy from Magitarius:

Greetings to all from Magitarius! This week kicks off our 2 week Cosmic Krush campaign starting this Friday, March 25 2016. Every day for the next 2 weeks beginning on the 25th we will be posting on all of our Magitarius social pages (Instagram, Pintrest and Facebook) as well as our website a new series of Special Edition Oreion colorways called “The Cosmic Krush”. Oreion is our very own 12” Vinyl and Resin combo Space Alien figure available on our website at: magitarius.com


As the far sides of the galaxy continued to outstretch its arms unto the deep depths of space unknown,
a tiny wormhole appeared and began to take shape. As it continued to flex and grow it began to open up thereby exposing a link between our universe and another one. Upon opening up, a small squadron of Aliens slipped through the hole unnoticed and into our universe. Those aliens are akin to the Space Alien Oreion! 

14 in all, these Oreions are here now and taking up residence at the Magi Labs. They are seeking out new places to dwell so pick yours up now while they are available for a limited time!

The Magitarius Cosmic Krush page is here and you can find the Oreion figures for sale in their shop here.

NEW MOTU Retro 3.75" Action Figures by Super7 Feature Jason Edmiston Artwork on Packaging

by

There are a lot of reasons why I'm excited about this new Masters of the Universe retro-style line of 3.75" action figures that Super7 has up for preorder... but the main thing that stopped me and forced me to blog is that each package features SWEET artwork by legendary painter Jason Edmiston.

Jason graced Bigshot Toyworks' FUnicorn package with an epic scene featuring the FUnicorn at the top of an exploding volcano. What many people might not realize is that the packaging artwork began as a painting! Like, a real fucking painting, executed with a brush and actual paint. These days... that's notable.

Big ups to Jason for killing it as usual, and big ups to Super7 for tapping him for this series of packaging art. So good.

Kitsune and Otsune : Cute Fox Sisters! New Kickstarter from Sunset Dragon

by

You might remember Sunset Dragons last plush kickstarter for her Little Moon plush.  Now she is back with a pair of adorable fox spirits, Kitsune and Otsune


This adorable plush version of Kitsune stands at 8" from the bottom of her rump to the tips of her enormous ears! She is sewn from a super soft pale cream minky fabric and has lovely red minky accents on her paws, tail tips, necklace and the swirl on her tail. She features lovely embroidered eye, eyebrow, nose, paw and mouth details.


Kitsune is definitely the fiestier of the two sisters. She loves salty and crunchy snacks- her ultimate favorite food being Ramen! (Kitsune Ramen to be exact!) She's still mastering her shape shifting, so when she's in her human form she keeps a leaf balanced on her head to maintain her concentration. All of the animals in her forest tend to steer clear of Kitsune when she's in a playing pranks mood-which tends to be 99% of the time!







This adorable plush version of Otsune stands at 8" from the bottom of her rump to the tips of her enormous ears! She is sewn from a super soft dark cool gray-brown minky fabric and has lovely blurple minky accents on her paws, tail tips, necklace and the varied designs on her two(!) tails. She features lovely embroidered eye, eyebrow, nose, paw and mouth details.


Otsune is the older sister of Kitsune. As a Kitsune of more experience-she even has two tails! She loves desserts and traditional Japanese ones are her favorite-though she would love to travel more and try new treats! Though she's worried to leave Kitsune all alone with no guidance. Otsune is constantly pulling Kitsune out of all kinds of terrible messes. All of the animals in Otsune's forest are also always coming to her with problems that need solving-she's quite loved in her spring woods!


There are many tiers of rewards, but $40 will snag you a pair of these foxes on Kickstarter now.
