Support grows for Andy from ToysRevil

Yesterday tragedy struck the Vinyl Toy Community as it was announced on Facebook that awesome blogger Andy Heng from ToysREvil had had a minor stroke.This dude is the most tireless blogger out there, dedicating all his time to bringing us the latest news on everything from Vinyl Toys to Comic books, and is a huge inspiration to myself and many others. His status at the moment is that he is still under observation and the next few days are critical. The Community has come together in a huge way, this Toy Community is one of the strongest out there, and there is a list of people who are willing to help in many different ways. Cris Rose ( Twitter ) is putting together a list of people willing to donate figures or cash to help pay for medical bills, and many artists have offered to donate all proceeds from sales to this cause, with the latest being Argonaut Resins offering up some Tuttz OG Albinos to the cause. This is a true tragedy in the community, but it warms the heart to see everyone come together like this with offers to help, and from HelloVinyl I offer my thoughts and prayers to Andy and his family.
All Toy lovers in South Africa please pray for Andy's speedy recovery.

RAJE Toys reveals the winners for series one of the 'Project Blueprint' project!

RAJE Toys just announced the winners for their 'Project Blueprint' series one... and there are some seriously rad designs in this series, and along with those designs are some seriously intricate patterns! I can't wait to see them fully produced. They say on their website that "It was a very tough job to choose winners from such quality entries and we feel guilty that we can’t make them all." No worries though as they plan on hopefully making this a yearly series which will always be open to entries from the top names and the unknowns in the industry! As you can see from the list they have a little bit of just that, some well know artists and some unknowns... and what a great mixture! Congrats goes out to the series one artists which include: Hugh Rose, Luihz Unreal, Kris Dyche, Hyaku, Igor Ventura, Cesar Zanardi, Jon Paul Kaiser, Matucha, Leonard Brizuela, Sjors Vervoort, Chris Dobson, Nahuel Cardozo Esper, Lisa Rae Hansen, and Patricio Oliver!
