O-No! Sushi

Fanboys love their toys! And 2009 has been a great year for collectors of both high and low art, so we’ve put together our favorites from this year with an eye on unique twists on old themes. For example shown above O-No! Sushi by Andrew Bell is an urban toy reaction from a vegetarian to sushi.

007 fans should love the James Bond Girls Barbie Doll Assortment Case which features Honor Blackman in Goldfinger, Halle Berry in Die Another Day and Ursula Andress as Honey Ryder from Dr. No.

Because diamonds are a kitty’s best friend! These faux diamonds on this ever so cute Crystallized Swarovski Hello Kitty MP3 Player caught our eyes.

Transformers Disney Label Mickey Mouse
