Super7 Does Optimus Prime Jumbo Machinder


This news made me very happy, as Super7 have received licensing rights from Hasbro to create their own Drinking Glasses, Designer T-shirts, Vinyl Figures, Art Prints and SUPER SHOGUN JUMBO MACHINDERS based on the Transformers line. That’s right, I said it! Hopefully in the next year we will see an Optimus Prime Jumbo Machinder. That’s 2 feet of fun!

Itokin Park for Super Magic Funtime Unit (7.13)


Super Magic Funtime Unit @ 5&A Dime on Friday (7.13, 7-10 PM) during SDCC, will be one of the ‘musts’ for sofubi fans featuring the work of Grody Shogun, Paul Kaiju, Velocitron, and friends.  One of those friends is Itokin Park.  While he won’t be making the trip to SD this year, his customs will.  Fresh from our inbox is a look at Itokin’s custom Crazy Kong and Zombie Prince built out of Grody Shogun figures.  

As is always the case, Kazu has gone the extra mile here.  The Zombie Prince features embedded comics from ‘Mad Monster Party’ – a stop animation movie mash send up from 1967,  which is one of Kazu’s favorites.  And, you’ll also notice alot of custom sculpting including the  Kong helmet (with hand-drawn  Itokin Park mini-stickers), the zombie prince crown,  as well as the mini-necklace items – the lightning bolt, sign and skulls. After the jump you’ll find a full photo gallery featuring closeups of the customs + plenty of sweet work-in-progress shots.
