Phenomenal Custom Batman Munny By Avatar666
Mexican custom toy artist Emmanuel Pérez del Río a.k.a. Avatar666 went for the noir-ish vibe of the Batman Black and White series and effing KILLED it. From the great sculpting work right down to the cloth utility belt, this is easily the greatest vinyl homage to the Dark Kight we’ve seen yet.

Mini Vinyl Toys Inspired By Nintendo Cartridges
We here at Albotas get all warm and happy inside our guts whenever the worlds of gaming culture and designer toy culture cross paths. Such is the case with Mini 10-Doh! Series 1 from Squid Kids Ink.

These little dudes will retail for $10 each. For wholesale inquiries, hit up DKE Toys.
QiQi Vinyl Toy Is Super Cute
Ziqi Wu and Creo Design just released this mini series of QiQi figures. The 3-inch toys come in glossy black, glossy red, and matte red. I’m having a hard time fighting the urge to buy the glossy red one. They’re $10 to $12.50 each, depending on color, but they’re nearly $20 after shipping charges. That’s a lot for three inches of plastic.
Ninja of the Month: Sandstorm Ninja
Shawnimals’ limited plushy ninja for the month of June is Sanstorm Ninja. The scarfed ninja comes with the normal bonuses like a card and pin, but he’s also paired with his cactus friend, Sandy. Get one at Shawnimals’ online shop for $30. Plushy Shai Hulud not included.
A Look at Two New Androids
That blue Android up there is called Schemer. It was given away at SXSW to several lucky bastards. Two more randomly chosen bastards who subscribe to the Dead Zebra newsletter will win a Schemer tonight. I can just see it twisting its mustache in my general direction, as if to say, “You’ll never have me.”
The one on the bottom is KaNo’s contribution to the third series of the Android Mini Collectibles. It’s based off the giant robot from the Beastie Boys’ Intergalactic video. I hear this one will be of a 1/16 rarity.
Ninja of the Month: Eel Ninja
Shawnimals’ plushy ninja for the month of April is Eel Ninja. He has an awesome color scheme and zaps you if you try to manhandle him. I lied about that last part. Fear not, Eel Ninja is not slippery or slimy; he’s nice and soft and schmooshy. Buy him for $30 at Shawnimals.
A Little Bit on the Kawaiju Side: These kaiju figures are so kawaii that I’m resisting the urge to buy them both. They’re made by Chima Group in Japan. Ademas, the Godzilla type dude, is $26 and Wool, the dinosaur guy, is $30 at myplasticheart. Some versions are sold out, but hopefully they’ll restock.
Daily Geekstomization: This brilliantly executed Polaroid Land Camera Munny was made by Patrick Bosworth who says:I had an old Polaroid OneStep Land Camera sittin around- so I figured I’d put it to good use.
Patrick also says that this was his first time customizing a Munny figure. First time? Could’ve fooled us!
