“Stranger Things 2” Coming to Netflix in 2017

The runaway success that which is the “Stranger Things” series, returns to Netflix in 2017, with “Stranger Things 2”.

And while we await further information on the TV series (still a far way off, I reckon :p), we will continue to post fan-art and such awesomeness, including this peek at an upcoming resin toy “homage”, which we hope to be featuring on the blog soon :)

#WhoAreTheGuardians? Character Profiles for “Zaschitniki” on PopcornX


I have been doing a series of Profile Features on the Russian super-powered Team who form “THE GUARDIANS” AKA “The Protectors” AKAA “Zaschitniki”, on my PopcornX Blog - including a look at their initial concept art and character designs (via - with a couple more to come in the following days.

I have become increasing intrigued by these superheroes, whom I suspect because they are “non-American” in celluloid-geography, and having enjoyed “Captain America: Civil War” again last night, am further intrigued by International super-powered folks … far be it I am a “Bruce Wayne” looking for meta-humans to form a “Justice League” though LOL

I am also wondering if these’ll be ever made “action figures” too … Anyone has any in-roads to any 1/6th scaled kitbashes or customs - to hit me up stat at *toysreviler [at]* - I would LOVE to feature them!


Living The Miniature Life

Admittedly, there was a time in my toy-life where the 1/6th scaled hobby consumed my thoughts and actions, so much so I’d actually wished I had a raygun or contraption that I could use to zap-shrink human sized clothing, into 1/6th-scaled clothing, to fit my “boys” and “girls” AKA “action figures”!

Oh c’mon! YOU didn’t? :)

A grownassadultman (8some might argue that statement) wishing he had a shrinking raygun, imagine that? I should have had this miniature screen printing press instead… :)

What? Don’t believe I collect 1/6? / :)

We will be welcoming back favorites; we have a wealth of history to pull from: Raku, The Golden Claw and the Red Hand Gang, Ornery Panda, The Grifling King, Ghostface Killer, Samurai Hicksan, General Shirokuri, and The Hotaru Copter Squad to name a few... we could even see beautiful new scaled renditions of Minosu and the Golden Bull, the Koalataur, maybe even The Wolf Rider & The TurtleBacked ClutterMunk? Who knows what we have up our sleeves.... who would you like to see return?

Not to be limited to my past creations we will also be expanding and growing the world with fresh new characters and stories, tying up loose ends.... and maybe even adding some semi-familiar skull headed troublemakers. ;) As many of you are probably aware, my return to this series is long overdue, and I am chomping at the bit to get these out into the world. I'm sure you have lots of questions. Over the next few months we will be unveiling more details and the first designs from this precious, magical world. Stay tuned. Awesome awaits."

Muckys, Vincent & King Korpse from INSTINCTOY for #STGCC2016 Singapore Toy Games & Comic Con

I remembered last year, when the convention hall doors opened on the first day of STGCC, I’d dashed in (s quick as my Stroke-ass-gaunt could take me lol) and made a beeline to the INSTINCTOY booth, specifically for the Byron Liquid, and having stood in line of a small queue (and met Alympu from Indonesia too!), with only one customer standing in front me me, taking the very last allocated Byron Liquid , and immediately impacted my entire Con-experience … even until now, a year later, and I am still whining about it … I can’t help it! I told myself not allow myself to go thru such a sense of toy-disappointement ever again…

Fast forward a year later, for the coming Singapore Toy, Games & Comic Con / STGCC2016 (Sept 10-11, 2016), these are some of the goodies that INSTINCTOY has in store for fans at Booth AA73 & AA75 in Artist Alley!


Featured above is the Clear VINCENT, looking utterly yummy (Will update when there is further info), while featured below are the Mini Muckey Rainbow 2 Editions. And while my eye is on the KING KORPSE figure (designed by James Groman), folks’ll have to make do instead with the limited edition Silver and Bronze emblem “rings”!

Stay tuned to Twitter @INSTINCTOY and Instrgam @instinctoy_hiroto_ohkubo for no doubt more updates of products to come, which I hope includes Re-Ret, as T9G is an Invited Guest this year at STGCC :)

"These two rainbow colors were very popular color waves in the Muckey series. Now we have remade the same color waves with the mini Muckey. The size is smaller, and in addition, it comes with two teeth designs. Of course, the mini-sized Muckeys have a rainbow glow-in-the-dark effect, just like the general-sized rainbow Muckey. Other than these two, there are many more new releases that will be ready later this week. We will announce them in turn, so please look forward to them." - shared Hiroto Ohkubo.
