you blew it

Well if you were one of the lucky freaky few who lined up today to get the Heath Dead Ledger action figure, your sick

“BATMAN fans have cleaned out New York toy stores’ entire supply of HEATH LEDGER’s JOKER action figure from Mattel, within minutes of them going on sale.

Devotees of the comic book series lined up early to clear shelves of the $9.99 (£5) toy, which shows Ledger in his final completed role before his premature death in January from an accidental drug overdose, aged just 29.

An employee of Times Square’s Toys R Us store says, “There are none left in the warehouse. You will be waiting a while if you want one.” Some fans are believed to be buying up stock, convinced the figure is a collector’s item – others are selling them on auction site eBay for up to $55 (£27.50) each.

Ledger will be seen as The Joker alongside Christian Bale’s Batman in The Dark Knight – which hits movie theatres worldwide from July (08).”

silver is the new vinyl

TOYGIANTS is far more than just a book about toys and designer vinyl.

The second Silver edition, you can nab your copy with a few extra bonuses! Daniel and Geo teamed up with collector Sleim Varol to cull from his collection of over 10,000 pieces. The cast ranges from more contemporary American comic heroes, manga superstars and designer-vinyl creations to Star Wars heroes, movie characters and political figures. With a playful style towards their subjects, Daniel and Geo have brought a peculiar reality to their fantasy world: Andy Warhol’s famous haircut is trimmed by Edward Scissorhands and close-up portraits of fictional heroes like Batman, Hulk and Rambo sit alongside real life villains such as Hitler and Saddam Hussein. There are also monumental group shots, some of which fold out to be almost a yard wide. Organized by color, these reminiscent of traditional yearbook photographs – but with far more visually enticing alumni.

The second edition of TOYGIANTS is being published as a Silver Edition by Gingko Press. The Silver Edition includes previously unreleased artwork from the TOYGIANTS series, including a removable poster and an exclusive interview with the artists Daniel, Geo, and Sleim. To celebrate the book release, Daniel & Geo Fuchs are presenting in co-operation with artempus con-temporary gallery, Düsseldorf, the exhibition TOYGIANTS at Gingko Press’ own gallery Rebel Arts Gallery in Hamburg. The exhibition goes through July 31st.

celebrity lunchbox auction

natalie-portman-lunchbox.jpg

Auctions for a good cause (human welfare & fat pockets alike) are always great. This one especially. This benefit auction for the Food Bank For New York City and The Lunchbox Fund of South Africa is cool because each celeb involved designed their own lunch box. My vote goes for the boxes designed by Natalie Portman, strictly because she touched them and I feel I am better off with anything that gets me closer to her. Yes, slightly creepy. Have look and bid on yours here

LIMITED EDITION SPRAYPAINT

Normally you would buy or steal a can of spraypaint to use, but now Montana has hooked up with five graffiti artists to produce limited edition cans, to collect. Honestly, I don’t even know if these have any paint in them or what colors they come in. What I do know is that the can collaboration with Os Gemeos looks really nice, and at $25 plus shipping they are not badly priced. Buy the cans through Montana’s website, here
