Steven Choi – Pi and Miss Weather at Shanghai Toy Show (4.5 – 4.7)



As part of his Zu and Pi project, Steven Choi will release his new Pi and Miss Weather figures with a rainy-weather theme from How2work  at the first-ever Shanghai Toy Show (4.5-4.7).  This new edition of Pi features colorful raindrops on his overcoat with a light green suitcase. It’s almost as if this toy stepped right off one of Steven’s Zu and Pi paintings which focus on the need for balance in life. This may be the first release for Miss Weather, an adorable, joyful cloud.    We’re really looking forward to seeing both of these figures in person at STS.

MJ Hsu x UVD Toys – Ellie: The Jellyfish Princess Kickstarter (thru 4.8)


The cool folks at Urban Vinyl Daily—through the UVD Toys brand—are currently running a Kickstarter for the new Ellie: The Jellyfish Princess vinyl toy project created by LA artist MJ Hsu.  Over the past few years MJ has created self-produced adorable resin toys from cute food toys to magical underwater creatures. For her first vinyl toy she’s returned to the sea with an ambitious 8.5” design featuring a transparent jellyfish-inspired design and multiple flowing tentacles. Digitally sculpted by the 3D Ninja at Karmieh Design, the approach evokes the graceful appearance of the majestic Jellyfish, balanced by the importance of stability. unnamed The Kickstarter campaign features a wide range of enticing rewards from sticker packs, pins and prints to hand-made resin companions and the vinyl Ellie toys. The vinyl toys are available in packages combining the enamel pin, the 5x7” print and either the OG Ellie ($100) or the Kickstarter exclusive colorway ($110).  Head on over to the KS page to learn more about MJ Hsu’s charming first vinyl toy and check out the full rewards list. The campaign ends on Sunday, April 8th at 4 PM PDT.

Scott Wilkowski – Choose Your Own Crazy Skeleton Kitten


Scott Wilkowski makes crazy two-in-one resin pieces with embedded skeletons—in fact he pretty much defined the look/style as far as art toys go. He’s done a dizzying number of styles, shapes, sizes and colors. As stylish as his color choices are, they might not match your tastes, collection, or digs.  Recognizing that, Scott is offering his gnarly 5” Kitten in his signature double pour style with a color combo of your choice (shell and skeleton).  This Choose Your Own Kitty is available now for $300 (+ s/h) and will be made to order.

Gorgocho x QUICCS x Martian Toys – Ukiuk Debuts at ToyCon UK (4.7-4.8)

unnamed (2)

Surprise!  Martian Toys has revealed their new Ukiuk vinyl, a fun collaboration between Red Mutuca collective artists Gorgocho (Charles Rodriguez) and QUICCS.  A stylized wolf/husky character, Gorgocho’s Ukiuk (inuit for winter) builds on the TEQ63 by combining a brand-new wolf/dog head sculpt with the torso from QUICCS’ figure.  The new figure will debut at Toy Con UK (4.7 – 4.8) in a Martian Toys Exclusive Dark edition (150 pieces).  The general release Light edition will be available from Martian Toys and select retailers starting on Friday April 13th at 7 AM PDT.

This hybrid approach works really nicely here and offers a more organic riff on the standard platform concept—allowing Gorgocho to use the TEQ63 as a flexible starting point for his own creation. For the toy nerds out there, Ukiuk doesn’t appear to use the alternate individual arms that are part of the TEq63 figures.
