“HAN THROW FIRST” by TOPZTOY - Banksy versus Han Solo Epic Mash-up Toy!


Launched for pre-orders now on topztoy.storenvy.com is this delightful pop-culture-referenced figure dubbed; “HAN THROW FIRST” - with this being a cocktail mash-up of Banksy’s flower-bouquet hurling “Terrorist”-stencil art, and Star Wars’ “Han Solo” in an incarnation of the eternal question: “Who Shot First?”** = BRILLIANT!

Thailand-based resin-slinger TopzToy really has topped his appropriation of pop-culture to the hilt here, IMHO!


Standing approx. 6" tall, there are currently TWO color way options to be had:

- WHITE & BLUE colorway - Priced at US$85 per, in an edition of 40 pcs, numbered on feet & card.

- Unpainted GREY Edition, priced at US$75 per.


**And if you don’t know your Star Wars-lore, it is when bounty hunter “Greedo” first confronted Solo in the Mos Eisley cantina, whereby a shoot-out occured, and folks were asking “Who Shot First”? Greedo or Han Solo?” Check out the video clip below, to "relive” your pop-culture-past! (Scene begins 5-minutes in :p).

“Kylo failed you… I won’t” - New TV Spot for Star Wars: The Last Jedi


A new TV Spot for THE LAST JEDI with the key line; Kylo failed you… I won’t. - made by Rey to Luke Skywalker - made the extra new footage seen here, seemed somewhat miniscule on importance by comparison, IMHO.

Star Wars TIE Fighters Storm East Point Mall, Singapore!


As the “Justice League” movie rages on in cinemas, “Star Wars” has invaded Eastpoint Mall (Simei) in Singapore (I was there in the afternoon and chanced upon this :p), with THREE TIE Fighters “flying” thru the main atrium! Really decent builds too, and not some shoddy “decor” to placate the masses, IMHO! I reckon they would make a very decent fit for a 1/4-scaled pilot each, maybe? Here are more pictures!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres December 15th, and it can’t get here sooner enough!

A post shared by TOYSREVIL (@toysrevil) on


All this is part of a “STAR WARS™ themed Christmas” happening from 17th November to 24th December, where you’ll ”Go on a galactic journey into the beloved STAR WARS™ universe through life sized dioramas, custom makeovers and many more interactive activities.” And seems this mall might not be the only one showcasing Star Wars! From Centrepoint in Orchard Road, to Bedok Mall (all except China Square Central :p), folks’ll get their Star Wars-fix!





Star Wars THE LAST JEDI: TV Spots & New Posters


A quartet of TV Spots for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI (featured below / via), along with 2 more movie posters - one for IMAX, and the other for ‘Dolby Cinema’ (via/via), for today’s coverage of the next Star Wars feature film to be unleashed in December and eat our collective pop-culture brains!

That Rey in red cowl tho…!

A Look at Kylo Ren’s "Star Cars” model car from TakaraTOMY


Purchased a new STAR CARS model vehicle from TakaraTOMY at the neighbourhood Toys’R’Us (Tampines Mall) and am sharing some images here (as I edit the unboxing video somewhen :p) - featuring a KYLO REN design on am “old-timer” mobile! And I absolutely adore it! Plus that “Kylo Ren” license plate! LOL

Price was less than SGD$15 I think *$12?).

JJ "Jabber" Hut by RYCA for DesignerCon 2017


DKE TOYS PRESS: ”For some strange reason either Ryan Callanan likes to waste a lot of resin or he buys it in such volume that he can afford to just give it away. JJ "Jabber" Hut like the Wampapi and Stay Fresh man before are HUGE!!! How he can deliver such heavy pieces for only US$90 is unimaginable.”

This hand cast and painted 8" carded figure is in a Signed and Numbered edition of 30pcs, and can be had at the DKE Toys Booth #812 at the coming Designer Con 2017 in the Pasadena Convention Center, November 11-12th, 2017.


A post shared by RYan CAllanan (@ryca_artist) on


ARTIST BIO: "Ryan’s work originally rose to fame through his involvement with the street art scene under the pseudonym “RYCA” (Instagram @ryca_art / ryca.net). Over the last five years however, he has developed an ever increasing presence and reputation creating prints and graphics under his own name. Through combining words and images from popular culture, with the materials and techniques traditionally associated with pub signs, he creates nostalgic, playful images that are both accessible and highly technically accomplished."

AT-AT Wood Sculpture by Amanda Visell


Amanda Visell has made a Star Wars “AT-AT” sculpted out of wood and hand-painted to look all Visell-Awesome, currently available to purchase online here for US$800.00 each. Limited to an edition of five sets, each At-At is sized (approx.) 12 inches tall, and comes with its very own attacking “Rogue-2” Snowspeeder attempting to cripple it by flying “cables” around its feet, which makes it DOUBLY AWESOME. You Decide!

Relive the “Battle on Hoth” with this clip from “Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back” - arguably one of the BEST “Star Wars” films ever screened, IMHO! FYI: If you’ve no patience to indulge (no worries, I won’t judge you :p), you are recommended to skip to the second video clip to see the Snowspeeder taking down the AT-AT :)

STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI - New Trailer & Poster


The 2nd and latest full trailer for STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI has been unleashed upon the www! Finally, seven hours after first finding out about it online, I’d finally had the chance to sit down in front of my desktop, and watched it full screen (multiple times, of course), with earphones on (I’m not going to watch on a measly mobile phone screen?!?!), and I CANNOT WAIT FOR CHRISTMAS!

Star Wars: The Last Jedi premieres December 15, 2017 in the U.S., and December 14th, 2017 in Singapore!
