Simon Petrikov, Marceline, and Flame Princess Munnys
BRB. Crying forever over how perfect these are. Simon’s backstory is the most gut-wrenchingly sad thing in the Adventure Time universe, and his time spent taking care of a young Marceline the Vampire Queen makes him all the more tragic.
And Flame Princess, yeah, she’s pretty okay too, I guess.
These were done by Shaun Nakasone. Check out more sick work over on his blog, sciuruscustoms.blogspot.com.

Ryan McClure a.k.a. RocketBoy Customs sent over these pics of his latest batch of custom toys based on Marvel characters. There’s a 5” Archangel Mad*L complete with wings, a bunch of Hulk Dunnys, a Deadpool Mighty Mugg, and even an Iron-Man made from a Rose Art DIY figure, of all things!
Why do you wear that stupid labbit suit?
This labbit will smork a jet engine right onto your house. One side features a normal labbit while the flip side reveals the skeletal remains of said nicotine-addled lagomorph. $75 gets you one of the 666 Kozik pieces. The portal opens on April 25.

The Hunted: 8” Dunny by Colus
This classy Dunny is a vinyl tribute to the springbok, a southwestern African antelope. The black and white color scheme is super smooth, and the additional ear sculpts and mounting plaque seal the deal. It’s limited to 1,250 pieces and will be released on April 11 for $75.
Albotip: Male springboks spread out a flap of skin near their tails and jump up and down to attract lady ‘boks. This is called pronking. Yes, pronking.

Street Fighter Mini Figure 2-Packs & Keychains from Kidrobot
First of all, Kidrobot, you blew it on the 2-packs. Shoulda’ called them something clever like 2-player packs or versus packs, but I’ll let it slide because I have a big, fat, giant crush on you.
The Street Fighter mini figure 2-packs come packaged with one character revealed, and the other is a mystery. I had this idea years ago and I’m glad that somebody finally telepathically stole it from me. Each pack will retail for $17.95.
Each one of the 2-inch keychains features two Street Fighter characters facing off and come in all sorts of various match-ups and colorways. These will be $4.95.
Kidrobot’s Street Fighter vinyl mini figure 2-packs and enamel keychains drop March 28, 2013 at Kidrobot.com, Kidrobot stores, and select retailers.
New Cuts from Carson Catlin
I’m pretty sure Carson Catlin was a plastic surgeon in a past life. Here are his two most recent commissions of vinyl omission. If you dig the Kidrobot Mascot figures, you might be in luck. Carson is thinking of bringing a haul of them to SDCC 2013.

Cyborg Labbit: Nemesis Edition
Chuckboy has taken his signature cyborg style and applied it to Frank Kozik’s iconic Labbit. This 7” robo-bunny is limited to 1,000 pieces and will drop here on Pi Day for $60. I think my favorite part is the super cute single-lashed eye.
