Amazing right? Recently designed by Brazilian artist João Ruas and due for release at some point in the near future, follow him on IG and Tumblr for the drop. You know you need one!
João writes: 'A while ago I was asked by a group of collectors to do a dream commission: a "Alien" screenprint poster. As a massive fan of the first movie, I was obviously highly enthusiastic about doing it. I did around 7 sketches, my initial idea was to play around the concept of animal species and survival mixing the two "beasts" of the film - the cat and the xenomorph. The final version, however, was more straight forward so I pushed to get "weird" in other areas, completely redoing the logo and choosing a sort of unusual landscape format.'

So many dudes doing this shit now, and a lot of it is really good. I cant get away with doing bullshit anymore. If Im gonna stay the king of this game, I better make some better work. How did I do?'

To clarify, what you're looking at are just 3D renderings, not actual toys. Big shame though coz these mash'ups by digital artist Volatile-Vertex are magnificent to say the least. Especially loving the Mr.Freeze meets Ice King idea. Will someone please call someone who knows how to get these made already... geeeze!

Purchase your SATORI KAPPA now from Planet3Toys for $80 (ed. of 40). What the hell's a Kappa we hear you ask!? Dave Dick (which has to be said, is an excellent name) explains...
"The Kappa is one of Japan’s yokai and are said to inhabit the country’s rivers and streams. Legendary trouble makers, Kappa are responsible for everything from general harassment to drowning people and animals, kidnapping children, and the ravishing of women. Now, not all Kappa are mischievous, murdering, kidnappers. Throughout history there have been some who have befriended human beings, helping and even teaching them."
Holy fudge Batman! This awesome new print by Brandon Holt (sorry, can't find his web address?!) is available right now from Mondo for just $45! How come it didn't sell out in seconds ay? ...weird.
