Super7 at NYCC – Wing Kong, Cab Dragon and MOTU


Super7 will be exhibiting at NYCC this year [booth #126] and they’ve started to pull back the curtain on what they’ll be bringing to the big apple.  Here’s a look at several newly announced vinyl figs including two new original editions: the red hot Wing Kong Maroon Baboon ($95) and the Original Orange Cab Dragon figure with skate legend Steve Caballero ($50).  

S7 will also release two new MOTU sofubis which pay homage to the vintage Speclatron bootlegs—Skeletor ($65) and Beastman ($65). Per their lineage, each features a clear + glitter torso.  As before, these come in fancy window boxes rather than bag + header.  While these four would make a pretty solid lineup, it sounds like there’s more to be announced shortly.

myplasticheart NYCC Exclusive: The Eliminator by Brent Nolasco


Wicked. As he mentioned in our webcam interviewBrent Nolasco has been planning to shift the style of his resin work, but up until now we’ve been waiting to see the new direction. First out of the chute is the The Eliminator (6.5”), the first in the rebirth of the Dark Descendents line.  This two-headed skull demon will debut as an NYCC exclusive in a dark grey sold resinedition  from myplasticheart for $90 (booth #113).

From what we can see so far, Brent’s definitely stepped up the level of the sculpting with this new release.  The facial details, in particular the teeth and horns, are pretty tight. Where most of his previous releases have been two part figures (head and body), The Eliminator ups the ante with five pieces (head, upper body, lower body and  arms x2).  Here’s hoping for a full shot/reveal shortly.

Evan Shen x Thirsty – Pugzilla


Taiwanese artist Evan Shen has teamed up with a brand new toy manufacturer Thirsty to create their very first soft vinyl toy Pugzilla. It already looks as though they have a few colorways already planned four this undead pug, one of which seems to have a gummy texture, which we think is super exciting to see!

About Pugzilla:
Over decades, people have been messing with dog’s genes, bringing out so-called “breeds”. The consequence of inbreeding has brought this world genetic mutation; furthermore, it has disturbed hearts, intestines or stomachs and caused organ functioning problems. On the contrary, limbs have become over-functioning. The most vital thing is that, Amygdaloid, also known as the brain of emotion has withered. The only thing that left in their minds is violence and demolishment. This is how Pugzilla is born…

For release information, be sure to stay tuned to either their Instagram or Facebook for any special release announcements. Check after the jump for more photos.
