Two Rad 50th Anniversary Astro Boy Figures

ZC World has announce that will be releasing not one but two new Astro Boy figures in the  Master Series range for Astro's 50th Anniversary Debut.

The Tezuka Productions 11.8" Astro (Atom) Boy PVC figures are based on memorable scenes from the classic 1963 cartoon. Each comes with one costume (red tuxedo for series 02 and yellow/white play outfit series 03) and is articulated in the head and shoulder areas.

To be honest the Series 02 and 03 figures are exactly the same as Series 01, with different costumes, so it would have been nice to see different facial expressions at least. But it's Astro Boy so who cares, right? 

Both figures will premier and available to purchase at the ACGHK Exhibition in Hong Kong or available to pre-order HERE now and due for release in July.

Beware of DeadBeet, The Veggie Avenger!

Check out Mikie Graham's custom contribution to Toy Art Gallery, 'DeadBeet, the Veggie Avenger' from the original Scott Tolleson design.

The awesome 7.5" tall sofubi platform is reminds us of The Blue Falcon from the 1976 cartoon classic. The Veggie Avenger comes removable nunchucks (with real metal chain) and three interchangeable battle cries speech balloons that hang above his head via a clear plastic dowel.
"From the chilly recesses of your refrigerator's crisper drawer a new Super Hero has emerged from the darkness and is standing up for the rights of his uprooted vegetable brotherin. DeadBeet, the Veggie Avenger!" - Mikie Graham

The Deadbeet Group Custom Show will open on June 29 at Toy Art Gallery. For more information go HERE.
