This is dope. I remember posting about this mastermind collaboration before. Or it could have been another mastermind Japan One Piece collab but that does not make this any less cool. mastermind Japan and Real McCOY collaboration desktop collectible based on the popular One Piece Manga/Anime. This is why I love mastermind Japan brand. The brand does not limit itself for any particular genre in terms of collaborations. One moment they might have a dope suitcase produced with Globetrotter and such collectible desktop article the next. The price for the item is YEN 18,900 and you can cop one from ZOZOVILLA.
This 2,100 piece Ultimate Collector’s Series LEGO R2-D2 is something I in addition to many other Star Wars and LEGO aficionados probably consider a must have item. In my mind I am trying to find excuses to spend £150 on this beautiful LEGO droid. The attention to detail the designers have put to this particular model is somewhat crazy. Although I am pretty sure this droid will not get a “pass” at the purchase process in casa de Kuisma-Chao, I can still continue scheming on how to justify getting one of these. Perhaps Maxwell would like to help daddy build this? You know, it’s good for his creative skills and all. Video after the jump.
I’ve been fascinated with the LEGO Moleskine limited edition collaboration ever since I saw the first pictures of the notebooks. I somehow felt that I needed to get one of these books. Not just because I’m a huge LEGO fan but I have never had a Moleskine pocket book. Still I thought that perhaps I will just let it be. Since I take my notes usually with my phone or iPad, I don’t new a note book/pad. But all it took was a picture of the text inside the book and I made my first impulse purchase in a long time. “Think with your hands.”
One of my all time favorite toys has to be a Transformers action figure/truck from way back, like end of the 80′s or beginning of 90′s. The truck was awesome and transformed into a huge Optimus Prime and smaller version of him. You could also transform the set into a battle station. I mean this particular toy was just so great. Check out the pic below to know exactly what toy I mean.
This is pretty cool. A collaboration between iconic cognac brand Hennessy and artist Kaws. Few days back they held a special launch party at New York’s New Museum to celebrate the launch of a limited edition bottle designed by KAWS. I like the bottle art and it’s great to see these brands taking initiative to look outside the box and re-invent themselves with modern art. Good look Hennessy.
Being that the release of the Captain America: The First Avenger movie is just behind the corner it comes as no surprise that Hot Toys is also gearing up to release a collectible figure based on the Comic Book hero’s movie version. The authentic looks of the 1:6 figure and add ons like the iconic shield and an assault rifle (?) make this one hot toy. Damn, if these action figures were around when I was growing up. Maybe I need to get Maxwell one of the collectible figures, at least once he gets into the age when he learns how to appreciate action figures, he would be the coolest kid on the block (as if he wasn’t already). Nicely done Hot Toys!
I know folks who have collected (and still collect) skateboard decks. Where as these objects take a bit more space than baseball cards and probably won’t be purchased quite as often as other forms of collectibles the collectors are proud of their collection and often do their best to top off the already impressive collection they have at hand. But every collection needs a crown jewel, a piece that is so rare you can be sure you’re the only one with the piece. And although sometimes a classic piece of wood has more than just emotional value, this piece probably tops most of the decks out there. A golden skateboard deck.
This is probably like the third post on this particular collaboration but when something this cool comes along, it just needs to be shared. Needless to say I’m a big fan of the joint venture project between coolrain and MINDstyle, in association with the NBA of course. The NBA Collector Series 1 features a number of NBA players in a unique collectible figure form. It’s all in the details. I really hope to cop one of the figures on my desk. Probably won’t have the space for the entire collection but one should suffice. Check out pictures of the collection below and for more detailed pictures check out J.M.E.
Now, we’ve used to all sorts of mastermind Japan collaborations varying from furniture to high fashion. The recent collaboration however is one of the most interesting pieces of lately. What do you get when you combine manga/anime sculpture by Real McCoy and this particular mastermind? You will of course get a One Piece desktop sculpture finished with mastermind Japan style.
Relationships always have their ups and downs but sometimes its the hobbies or interests of the other party that can really stir trouble in paradise. Of course it’s all about understanding but when the other party is obsessed enough with whatever his/her interest might be, it’s sure to cause a problem. One such issue could be collections. Whether it’s video games, action figures, jeans or T-shirts, everyone has their tolerance levels. One housewife just came to an end of her tolerance level with her husband’s action figure collection.
