Zeen Chin x MINDstyle -- ReChild

ReChild-1

MINDstyle showed a dizzying number of new figures at the Toy Tokyo booth for last week’s Toy Fair in NYC.  Perhaps the most eye-catching piece is ReChild by talented illustrator Zeen Chin.  Carrying the name of the artist’s first volume of collected works, the elaborate piece features several of his recurring imp-like children making like a centipede.  No word yet on a release date for this arresting new vinyl art toy.

28433483_1830991120257967_4215705353884532736_n

Ron English just posted a shot of his Punk Skunk prototype chilling as part of a to-be painted scene in his studio. The ‘dope’ figure is enjoying an herbal break with blunt in hand—note the weed silhouette cleverly worked into the tail design.  Ron’s new character was first seen in a painting (below) for his Toybox: America in the Visuals solo which opened at Corey Helford Gallery back in December. We’re looking forward to this new original art toy from Ron which is thankfully coming ‘soon’.

Tara McPherson x Kidrobot – Stellar Dream Scouts Minis + Larger Vinyl

Kidrobot showcased quite a few of their upcoming art toy projects this weekend at Toy Fair including two related Tara Mcpherson projects for which they showed off the packaging, but not the toys themselves.  Stellar Dream Scouts is an new blind-box mini series drawn from Tara’s magical universe filled with the cute, nonchalant and the mysterious.  Pink elephants, whales, rock ‘n roll pandas, mountains and free spirits will all be waiting for collectors.  Lots of great variety character/sculpt wise – by our quick count, it looks like at least 12 different sculpts.  In addition, KR also displayed the box art for a new ‘medium format’ 2-figure set from Tara featuring a girl and wolf companion.  [Photos: Kiba]
