Danny Chan X Ultraman - Levi's Time 12" Figure
IND (Danny Chan x Ultraman) have designed a limited-edition 12" Levi's Time figure as part of a box set which includes a limited edition numbered Levi's Time Watch and a numbered collector's certificate. The laid back urban dweller is rocking Levi's mini-apparrel, sneakers, messenger bag, headphones, shades, and naturally a Levi's Time watch. Available in both white and brown haired colorways, the Levi's Time Figure is limited to 500 sets produced by Hot Toys and will be available in Hong Kong starting in November. With a focus on hyper-detail and the human shape, the 1:6 format is clearly becoming the crossover star in the designer toy arena.

Miku Preorder from Boredom Squeezer (05.08.06)
Boredomsqueezer has announced a super-limited 12" handmade Boredomcity Miku figure. How limited? 20 pieces... Miku's very stylized with what feels like an upscale urban look. I'm not sure whether I prefer the all-black or the two-tone edition. Miku will be available for preorder at Midnight (HK time) on May 8th for $380 USD and will be released at the end of the year. Apparently, the 2 color version and a special version will be inserted randomly. Wow, talk about "chase". Miku may be very sought after by 12" collectors, especially those with the means ;-)
