Koralie x Kidrobot - Arlequine 3-inch Dunny (04.12)


Koralie joins Kidrobot’s 3” Dunny train with her all new Arlequine Dunny! It feels as though she is following along the Circus theme after the release of Chauskoskis’ Birro The Clown Dunny. Could this be a coincidence? We’ll have to wait to see the next release to solve that mystery. Arlequine comes accessorized with a fabric collar and a blue balloon. This piece is limited to 1500 pieces worldwide and will be available exclusively at all KR Locations for $14.95 on Thursday, April 12th.

Toy2R’s 5” Spike and Melting DIY Mini-Qees

001-Sales_5inch_Mini_Qee_Spike_Bear Sales_5inch_MiniQee_Samurai_Pumpkin

Toy2R has just officially announced two new wildly textured additions to their 5” DIY Mini-Qee Line: Spike Bear and Melting Bear.  The new DIY’s come in four shades – Black, White, Red and Hot Pink. These are set to drop in April for $20 each.  While the stylized textures have visual appeal, they might not be very desirable to discriminating customizers in search of smooth, large surface areas. However, casual DIYers are likely to be drawn to the unusual shapes.  These will also certainly find their way on to collector’s shelves perhaps in color-focused collections.

Podgy Panda x Crisr Collaboration Resin Figure


First seen over at TRE are these super rad collaborative resin figures from Podgy Panda and Cris Rose. To the left is Podgy Panda’s figure, which features none other than his Panda character with a powered space suit. To the right you see Crisr’s rendition of a robotized Panda, who so happens to also be a chef that works in a chain of restaurants. Why is he strapped to a jetpack? To get food to the tables faster of course!

These figures measure approximately 3” x 3.5” with posable heads and removable domes and should be releasing in early April. They will first be released in limited editions of 5 each. Cris Rose and Podgy will be painting their own editions and will also have a few one-offs available during the release as well. Stay tuned for more information!

Chris Ryniak for Monsters and Misfits II (4.13 – 4.26)

For Monsters & Misfits II in Japan (4.13 – 4.26), Chris Ryniak has been busy creating all manners of beasties (monsters seems so judgmental for many of these seemingly innocuous creatures).  What really sets Chris apart from other talented ‘toy’ sculptors is his ability to convey emotion simply and effectively through facial expressions and body positioning. That skill is on glorious display with these new presumed one-of-a-kinds which he’s been posting to his tumblr.  

If you find yourself in Japan, you’ll definitely want to check out the show at the Kusaba Folk Museum, organized once again by Tomenosuke in conjunction with Circus Posterous.  This time around it will feature the original cast including Kathie Olivas, Brandt Peters, and Chris Ryniak, as well as Doktor A and Amanda Louise Spayd.

Anna Chambers – New Plush Rabbit

001-orange stripe

Looks like Anna Chambers, one of our favorite plush artists, is about to release a new plush figure due in time for Easter.  Judging by the ears and her previous one-off plushes,  we’ll go way out (hah!) on a limb and say this new striped creation is a wee lil’ rabbit.  In addition to the orange, there’s also a green striped edition waiting in the wings (seen on her blog’s title banner image).
