Munky King x Yoskay Yamamoto – Screaming for the Sunrise DIY

001-DIY_detail_web

Munky King has released Yoskay Yamamoto’s Screaming for the Sunrise vinyl in a new DIY edition (6”, $50).  We’ve always enjoyed Screaming for the Sunrise and felt that it never quite got its due.  Here’s hoping talented customizers reintroduce folks to the figure.  That said, the sculpt seems like a challenging one to hand paint – though we can imagaine some awesome airbrushed pieces. Pick one up now for $50 (+s/h) at Munky King.

Tomenosuke x Double Parlor -- Rowm

001-a0077842_1657133

Over the past few months, Japan’s Tomenosuke has released several sweet resin figures (including Goro) from Double Parlour as part of their bimonthly exclusives program.  April’s release is Rowm, a proud, shirtless, tentacled character. He may have unusually rough skin, but his heart’s in the right place (we think). Through their strong design, beautiful sculpting and painting, Double Parlour has turned resin into an appealing yet quirky character, full of personality and life in a way that only they can achieve. Limited to 5 pieces, the 8” Rowm is available exclusively from Tomenosuke for 17820  yen (~ $175).

Buff Monster – Melty Misfits Series 2 Kickstarter

   001-promo1

Buff Monster is following up on the success of his first series of Melty Misfits trading cards with a brand new series.  If his first homage to the Garbage Pail Kids didn’t cement him as the world’s #1 fan of the 80’s sensation, the second series certainly will.  To make it a reality, he’s launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise $10k to help with the many costs of creating and producing the new cards.

Go big or go home, and that’s what Buff is doing.  For series 2 he’s creating 40 original character designs (80 cards in all with the beloved A/B editions), topping the 30 of the first series.  As with series 1,  Melty Misfits 2 will be about much more than just the standard cards, there will be plenty of chase cards including error cards, signature cards, sketch cards, variant cards and more.  And then there’s the mother of all chases… two  Golden tickets, each redeemable for something ‘unparalleled’. 

If you loved the first series of  Melty Misfits kiss-cut trading card stickers, head on over to the Melty Misfits S2 kickstarter page to check out the various rewards including two packs ($10), four packs ($20), complete base set with Kickstarter exclusive box ($40), and more.
