Hong Kong based designer Benson Wong linked up with space-age bag maker Steppyplus to create the Stepo The Explorer vinyl toy figures. The urban style inspiration of the figure is what caught our eye on this figure so we had to share it with ya’ll!

The figure comes in two editions, “Backpack” and “Rocketpack”. The both editions stand at 7 inches tall, they are hand painted and they come packaged with a header card & Polybag. The figures also feature a vintage astronaut helmet and ray gun, just in-case things get hectic on their outdoor space exploration. 😉

Kool Keith x Concrete Jungle – BLUE FLOWERS – Resin Figure

Published

Legendary emcee and member of the Ultramagnetic Mc’s, Kool Keith has his own figure coming out via Concrete Jungle called “Blue Flowers”. The resin collaborative piece is inspired by Kool Keith’s space traveling alter ego Dr. Octagon.

About Dr Octagon:
“Dr. Octagonecologyst was the debut solo studio album by Kool Keith, who released the album under the alias Dr. Octagon. A shorter version of the album, titled Dr. Octagon, was released on May 7, 1996, on Bulk Recordings in the United States and Mo’ Wax in the United Kingdom. The full album appeared under the title Dr. Octagonecologyst on DreamWorks Records in 1997. The set was produced by Dan “The Automator” Nakamura and featured the work of turntablist DJ Qbert. KutMasta Kurt provided additional production work. The artwork for Dr. Octagonecologyst was drawn by Brian “Pushead” Schroeder.”

Dr. Octagonecologyst introduces the character of Dr. Octagon, a homicidal, extraterrestrial, time-traveling gynecologist and surgeon. The album’s distinctive sound crosses genres such as psychedelic music, trip hop, old school hip hop, horrorcore, and electronic music. Thornton’s lyrics are often abstract, absurd, and avant-garde, using surrealism, non-sequiturs, hallucinatory psychedelia, and horror and science-fiction imagery, as well as sexual humor, absurdist/surrealistic humor, and juvenile humor. The unique sound and lyrics of Dr. Octagonecologyst helped revitalize alternative and underground hip hop, gaining more attention than any contemporary independent hip hop album “in quite a while”. ~Wiki

The figure stands at 13 inches tall, each one will be signed and numbered but it will only be limited to 100 pieces. You can pre-order “Blue Flowers” now on ConcreteJungleStudio.com.

ToyCon Transformers

We had a great time at ToyConNJ this year! There were a ton of new and vintage toys to see. Tons of Pops by Funk and classic G.I. Joe toys for days! There were also vintage and new video games and board games, there were even a few comic book vendors at the event, it was awesome. One of my favorite sections was the play area where they had two 4 lane slot car setups, an R/C car setup, vintage arcade game and virtual reality games that you could all play for free! It was a great time and I can’t wait to go again next year!

Big BMX, MTB and Toys things happening with the brand!

For the first time ever Hyper Toy Co. setup shop at The North American International Toy Fair  in New York City!

As most of you may already know, Hyper is known for their high end BMX racing frames and freestyle frames (High end MTB frames coming soon) under the Hyper Bicycles Brand. Hyper is also known for their full range of entry level BMX, casual bicycles and Nitro Circus branded goodies through their retail partners, Walmart, Target and Sam’s Club. But what most of you may not know is Hyper has been making Ride-On toys like the Yamaha Raptor Ride-on for 10 years!!

Now with the addition of their new Yamaha R/C cars, scooters and skateboards, Hyper is making the move to put all their products under the Hyper Toy Co. brand!

I caught up with Hyper Brand manager and good friend Jud Ciancio who talked about the new branding direction. He also gave me the run down of the products Hyper is coming with this year like their carbon (full carbon frame) MTB complete which will be available at Walmart for $399. The awesome Mission 1 high end BMX racing frame gets an upgrade and will be called Mission 2. The high end MTB dirt jumper is getting a lot closer to being released and a lot more!!

I didn’t know Hyper was going to be at Toy Fair so it was definitely a pleasant surprise!!  Jud has been supporting me as a rider and event promoter for years and it’s awesome to see the growth of the brand over the years. It’s looking like this year is gonna be the best one yet!!
