There’s been a crop of 3D movie posters in the last year or so – notably Jaws and Robocop. They’re basically like designer toys but created as wall mountable dioramas that are based on their movie posters.
This Godzilla 3D poster is a nice addition, standing 11.5 inches tall and bursting from the frame.

Dennis the Menace, the Beano comic icon, has now been reproduced as a ten inch piece of soft vinyl. I never thought I’d see this day (because it never occurred to me), but its still cool. Reminds me to buff up my old collection of Beanos.
Dennis comes in two different styles, a Classic Version and an Urban Version. Both versions are only limited to 1000 pieces and come with two interchangeable weapons (pea shooter & sling shot).

More handmade coolness, this time in the shape of these full clothed figures by Coolrain. Barbie Ken they’re not.
The new, handmade ‘Monsterz Crew’ figures of “Andy and P-nix” are both extremely limited to ten each, and are decked out in urban Nike attire. Because of the handmade, branded nature of the articulated, large figures, they’ll cost a whopping $700 each.

Dr. Grordbort’s Wave Disrupter only measures 3″ yet shows an amazing amount of detail. It’s a mere one quarter of a full size version with each and every component preserved in its pristine detailed state.
It is limited to an edition size of 900 and is made in purest venusian metal!
