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).
