The all-popular Mr. Potato Head gets a fantastic makeover with Melbourne-based artist Stephen Ives series of sculptures, "Mr. Dictator Head." The artist's other plastic toy figures are often humorous, sometimes disturbing (as re-assembled toys often are) and always imaginative and inspired.

“As he pierces her with brutal force” is no understatement with Dutch artist Parra’s depiction of a harsh necking in his first collaboration with pop art brand Kidrobot. The 10-inch vinyl sculpture is a dramatization of eroticism and dominance, with beaked creatures pecking away at each other in a menagerie gloss and matte. The forceful embrace is an ode to romance novel covers that even Fabio might be turned on by depending on what angle he views it from.

Even if you don't care about Steve Jobs, Apple, toys, action figures, art toys, etc, you have to admit, this Steve Jobs Action Figure by in icons is really well-crafted. The 1:6 scale comes in the trademark black turtleneck, New Balance sneakers, "dad doesn't care no more" stone-washed jeans, and eyeglasses that move so you can better see your iPhone screen. Or better for your toy to see the screen.
