Ok, ok. I know what you're gonna say, but HONESTLY, I'm not PLAYING WITH A BARBIE DOLL. I swear! This is one of HOT TOYS' Truetype Figures. I've been into HOT TOYS since their release of Appleseed's Deunan Knute and Briareos. I have to say that in this area of 1/6 scale figures, they really kicked Medicom and Takara's asses. Their attention to detail is one of their selling points. This Truetype figure is a "blank" figure, ready for customization. I figured I'd give it a shot and see what I can come up with. I'm not 100% fond of the face and the skin tone is darker than advertised- something I've noticed with their toys. I also don't like the fact I can see the joints. It seems less realistic but I suppose it works better under clothing. Yet another project for me to not finish! :)

OK so I brushed its hair with a small comb to straighten it... WHAT? Stop looking at me like that!


Knuckle up.

I've always loved Touma's Knuckle Bear. I never thought I would be customizing an 18" version of it! This will be my first show in the UK and I will be making a personal appearance! Get ready- CHUCKBOY is coming to the UK!!!

Well I got screwed over by the crazy snow we had here in NYC and my flight to the UK was cancelled. I couldn't find a replacement flight so I had to drop out of the show. GODDAMMIT. I was rather excited about going to the UK. Next time, I guess... >:/

Staring at the stars.

I picked up these two from 123Klan recently. They're AWESOME. I love the design. I don't know why but they have a Daft Punk vibe, even though they don't look anything like the pair. I like Fellastar (Orange) more but I really dig the eyes of Megastar (Pink/Purple). I actually got a little confused and thought the Megastar from Artoyz was different and bought one from them but apparently it's the same as the one from 123Klan's store. Various posts and blogs on the internet made it seem like it's different. Ah well. This is what I get for jumping the gun. GUESS one's gonna get customized. AW YEAAAHHHHH...

Oh yeah. If you buy them directly from 123Klan, you get some awesome stickers and the boxes are signed by Scien and Klor!
