About Ron English:

One of the most prolific and recognizable artists alive today, Ron English has bombed the global landscape with unforgettable images, on the street, in museums, in movies, books and television. English coined the term POPaganda to describe his signature mash-up of high and low cultural touchstones, from superhero mythology to totems of art history, populated with his vast and constantly growing arsenal of original characters, including MC Supersized, the obese fast-food mascot featured in the hit movie “Supersize Me,” and Abraham Obama, the fusion of America’s 16th and 44th Presidents, an image widely discussed in the media as directly impacting the 2008 election. Other characters carousing through English’s art, in paintings, billboards, and sculpture include three-eyed rabbits, udderly delicious cowgirls and grinning skulls, blending stunning visuals with the bitingly humorous undertones of America’s Premier Pop Iconoclast.

Sentinel presents Rowen of the Strata (Tenku no Touma) action figure

PREORDER HERE: https://www.tenacioustoys.com/products/rowen-of-the-strata-tenku-no-touma-165mm-action-figure-by-sentinel

Sentinel is proud to present Rowen of the Strata (Tenku no Touma),
our third figure in the Chou-Dan-Kadou Yoroi Den Ronin Warriors line.
A boy genius with an IQ of 250 - Armor Warrior Rowen Hashiba is a
descendant of the Hashiba family who follows the tradition of the
Taiko Kampaku Clan.


The figure comes with a gorgeous set of anime-accurate Under-Gear
and Yoroi-Gear (armor). This highly articulated figure of Rowen can
assume a wide variety of fighting poses. Additionally his Armor-Gear
can be displayed alone using the pedestal frame as seen in the
anime! A “Shogi” stool is also included in the package to let Rowen
relax alongside his Yoroi-Gear.


Using the hand variations provided, Rowen’s Shoha bow can be
deployed in various attack modes. Using the special bow-hand included allows Rowen to reproduce his special “SHINKUHA” move-
concentrating the energy of the sky and knocking down enemies with the power of the planet's atmosphere! The Shoha bow can also be
folded and attached to the back of “Strata” Yoroi-Gear.
As with the previous figures in the Ronin Warriors line, the figure
comes with 3 kinds of facial expressions and includes an armor mask.


The impressive workmanship done by Yuta Fuke in reproducing
Rowen’s signature hairstyle and facial expressions will blow you
away.


The “Strata” Yoroi-Gear Armor has been designed with superior
molding for an improved anime-accurate presentation of this Ronin
Warrior in both Under-Gear state and Armored modes.


The Yoroi-Gear armor is predominantly realized in ABS Plastic with a
glossy finish delivering a sharp and solid feel to this warrior figure.
Don’t miss the opportunity to add Rowen of the Strata to your Ronin

#TenaciousToysFair - 武Ching II Clear Red Version by ELZ-CO drops Feb 5 at Noon EST

#TenaciousToysFair - 武Ching II Clear Red Version by ELZ-CO drops Feb 5 at Noon EST

Tenacious Toys is kicking off a full month of exclusive drops with 武Ching ll -中肝二膽 Clear Red version by ELZ-co.

First released at a Hong Kong cyberpunk fair, the 4" tall 武CHING ll figures are 3D printed resin. This Tenacious Toys exclusive clear red edition is limited to just 15 pieces at $75 each.

This release is scheduled for February 5 at noon EST on the Tenacious Toys Fair 2021 page. Further releases in Tenacious Toys Fair will also appear on the same page. A full release schedule is published there as well and will be updated throughout the month as Tenacious adds more exclusives to the calendar.

About CHING:

武Ching portrays the social indifference among modern citizens.
Everyday overwhelming human encounters discourage personal connections.
Without acknowledging individual faces, we overlay masks on others to describe and categorize people, just to be efficient.

At the same time, we put on masks to present our desired image to the rest of the world.
Neglectance is our consent of respect among urban creatures in inevitable close proximity.
Social indifference is our living comfort zone.

The concept of 武CHING ll - 中肝二膽 (with lower-case "l"s) is about Chūnibyō.

It is a figure of a modern girl holding an umbrella pretending to be Guan Gong, the god of war and loyalty in Eastern cultures.

Everyone fantasized about being a hero or a princess at a young age.
Most people abandoned their imaginations and fall right into the reality when facing the cruel world. However, some of us just don’t grow up.

We embrace our “immature” fantasies to motivate ourselves to commit to our beliefs.
It only sounds impractical when we haven’t succeeded, but what doesn’t?

About ELZ-CO:

ELZ-co. is in search of the absolute values in the artificial cosmos by confronting the brutal instinct of comprehended lifeforms. Toys bring joy because only with joy, it's a toy.
In an infinite stretch of the galaxy, our ancestors created an artificial habitat for our finite lives. We pursuit, create and share the absolute value of joy, starting with toys.

Epic Custom: the worst is behind you now by @Nerviswr3k

Epic Custom: the worst is behind you now by @Nerviswr3k

Gabe writes:

when i sculpted these pieces, both started out as standalone pieces, the kid hugging the pilldrone and the alien. But as it started coming to life, i felt it needed to tell a story, but what story?

Dealing with anxiety and panic attacks, it always feels to me like something is slowly creeping in and sneaks up on me and before i know it, its consumed my body,  plus i love the outdoors and campfires.

Little by little it all started to come together. Accented with faux grass and real plants and actual pine tree trunks. i even used actual real moss that we collected from the Redwoods.

The base measures 17x17 inches. The alien is 12x9 inches while the kid is 5 inches by 4 inches. Added sculpted elements include a hand sculpted axe with real wooden handle, a wooden fully functional slingshot, burnt marshmallow on real wooden stick along with a baggy of marshmallows, and a wood fire with sculpted fire elements. Lastly, cant forget his cuppa joe.

This diorama is available for purchase thru instagram (@nerviswr3k) or email at nerviswrek287@yahoo.com

US Postal Service Delays continue in 2021

US Postal Service Delays continue in 2021

READ FULL ARTICLE HERE: https://www.npr.org/2021/01/22/959273022/theres-no-end-in-sight-mail-delivery-delays-continue-across-the-country

"The U.S. Postal Service is still digging out from under an avalanche of mail sent during the recent holiday season.

But for much of the past year the postal system has been strained by the impact of COVID-19 on its workflow and workforce.

In addition, operational changes ostensibly designed to stop the system from hemorrhaging money helped create a backlog of mail.

Online shopping has skyrocketed during the pandemic as many customers sheltered at home.

Both the Postal Service and those who depend on timely mail deliveries are still coping with the result."
