Prehistoric Ice Cream, while we’re not sure it’s tasty, it sure is cute.  Unbox will release special mixed parts Little Dino—‘Dino Ice Cream’ figures (~ 4”) from Ziqi on Saturday (12.9) at 4 AM PST on their webshop for $70 (+ s/h). As with other mixed parts drops, each dino treat will have assorted and mismatched colored parts  and be more or less unique.

Bunnywith is back! That’s right, Alex Pardee’s classic, armless Bunny is back.  You’ve enjoyed him in plush and molded pvc, and how comes a brand new vinyl version (8”) from Mighty Jaxx.  So that’s all good, any downsides?  Only one, Bunnywith will only be available for 24 hours beginning on Saturday (12.9) at 4 AM PST for $109 (includes shipping) from Mighty Jaxx’s online store.  He looks good by himself, but even better ‘with’ something else – after all the Bunny is universal.

Six TwentyEight – Invisible and Clear MITTs for Fuckaiju (12.10)

unnamed

Six TwentyEight has clear on its mind with two new MITT editions slated for Fuckaiju—Finest United Convention for Kaiju— on December 10th at The Hub in Hong Kong.  The Invisible MITT starts with a clear MITT and features minimal color sprays to his bumper car and clothes to give the illusion that the Bull Dog is well… invisible.  The MITT Clear is as it sounds, an unpainted, clear MITT and Bumper Car. 

Can’t make it out to the event?  Invisible MITT will also drop online on Monday (12.18) at 4 AM PST, while the MITT Clear will make it online at a later date.

Amanda Louise Spayd and Chris Ryniak’s Curious Forest exhibition, held over the weekend with Tomenosuke at Tokyo Comic Con, proved to be quite popular—to no one’s surprise :) There are however a small number of pieces still available, which Tomenosuke will offer online via their Curious Forest site beginning on Wednesday (12.6) at 9 PM JST or Wednesday at 4 AM PST.

The preview is available now and while the inquiry/order form loads, it appears that orders won’t be accepted until the official sale time mentioned above. A few of Amanda’s resin editions and her one-of-a-kind pieces are available.  While a few of  Chris’ drawings are available, all of his figures sold out in Japan.

Check out Tomenosuke’s Tokyo Comic Con video below for a close-up look at Curious Forest and the Tomenosuke booth including a look at Tomenosuke’s official Blade Runner 2049 Blasters.  We’ve queued up the Curious Forest section for easy viewing.

Amanda Visell – The Imperials

QUEzNkY1NzBCQzFDOEZGQjk1MDE6OWZlODU0ZWRiOTQ0NThiNWU2MjQ3ZTIzZWMzODMxNTg6Ojo6OjA=

Amanda Visell released The Imperials, a blind-box style series featuring seven hand-crafted Star Wars baddies done in wood, back on Black Friday.  She’s mentioned that these will only be available for a short while longer, so if you haven’t seen these or have been on the fence, now is the time.  The sinister seven each stand 7” tall and include: Imperial Officer, Storm Trooper, Royal Guard, Death Star Gunner, Tie Fighter Pilot, Scout Trooper, and Snowtrooper.  They are available directly from Switcheroo for $175 each (+ s/h). Since these are sold blind, you won’t be able to choose the character but if you order multiples you won’t get any dupes.

Ziqi x Unbox – Mixed Parts Ice Cream Dino ?!?!

24175611_1185363054928843_6638585053683122176_n

Oooh… It looks like Ziqi and Unbox have another batch of treats on the way with this teaser of Mixed Parts Ice Cream Dino vinyls.   No release info yet, but we’re assuming (well, more like hoping) that since these made the Unbox IG, that there will be an online drop.  It would also be awesome to see some of the painted editions (below) as well which were released at several Asian conventions including most recently at Tokyo Comic Con (12.1 – 12.3).  Keep hope alive.

Taku Obata x Unbox Industries – SOFB Boy (12.2)

24127158_113592202759016_1547544916534493184_n

The day has come… Unbox will release SOFB Boy by Japanese sculptural artist Taku Obata on Saturday (12.2) at 7 AM PDT from their webshop for $85 (+ s/h). Highly anticipated, these should go quickly.  If you miss this first opportunity, Unbox has your back with another online drop planned. 

First shown exactly a year ago in proto form, the figure translates one of Obata’s towering wood B Boy sculptures into soft vinyl via a digital scan.  Besides the affordability and more practical form factor, the dynamic soft vinyl figure offers new possibilities with impressive articulation (9 points: elbows, wrists, legs, arms, and head ???) transcending the static presentation of Obata’s other mediums including bronze and wood.  SOFB Boy’s flexibility to Tut however you see fit, is a perfect match for the frenetic hip hop dance form.
