Pushead @ NYCC
Pushead continued his annual NYCC event at Toy Tokyo earlier this afternoon. Following last year's successful and quite popular back room setting, this year's event was held in the rear corridor behind the booth -- allowing each collector a personal and private experience. Pushead graciously gave Vinyl Pulse a quick peek of the production releases which included a Rebel Captain, a Skull Captain, a Skull Pirate, a Skull Wing and a pair of Siamese Skull Wings. Enjoy the photos after the jump.
NYCC Flash: MAD Signing @ myplasticheart
MAD signed for fans and collectors at the myplasticheart booth on Friday afternoon. He brought along the new Bruce Lee minis from Round 5, as well as sever resin mini MADLs, a few solid color 10” vinyl MADL’s and a black proto of the upcoming Modern hero resin. Since the line continued to grow as his official signing session ended, he then switched to the side table to sign and sketch for all of his fans.
Modern Hero looks really good up close. While the proto has a bit of a matte finish, the final production pieces will be nice and glossy. An original Modern Hero figure has been awhile in the works, though the wait is almost over. Look for an end-of-the year drop.
NYCC Flash: Sitting Mini Greasebat Proto
Monster Worship brought an impressive lineup of new releases to NYCC, which includes the debut black release of the Mini Greasebat figure from Jeff Lamm. Adding to the excitement for Greasebat fans, they are showed off a proto of sitting mini during their Friday timeslot at the Onell booth (#3216). If you missed ‘em, MW will be back at the booth on Saturday (10.13) from 4-7 PM.
NYCC Flash – Ron English Black+White Porcelean Mc Supersized
Clutter revealed the upcoming half black/half white porcelain Mc Supersized from Ron English and k.olin tribu at its NYCC booth (#3004). As a nice touch, the big dollar pendant features the half-half split of the figure only in reverse order. The new figure is available for pre-order for $750 (50% deposit required).
NYCC Flash: RAWR’s Bitsumo, Pandit and Yaocho
Dai Tran has expanded the world of Bitsumo. In addition to the original smaller Bitsumos, he’s also offering the new 7” Bitsumo XL, 7” enemy Pandit figures as well as the copper colored Yaocho – who brings his own chaotic energy as a wildcard in the struggle for supremacy between Bitsumo and the Pandit legions. Yaocho features the Bitsumo body with a fearsome skull style head and new mawashi. Check out the new figures and Tees at the Rawrs booth (#3315).
Buff Monster x Mishka – Bootleg Kaiju Customs @ NYCC
In between NYCC and various parties, Buff Monster has been finding time to drop into his painting studio to work on his Bootleg Kaiju customs – including the one above which just popped up on Instagram. That brings the circle of Bootleg Kaiju painters to four – creator Lamour Supreme, Skinner, Shigeru, and now the pink one. Buff will be releasing his Bootleg Kaijus at the Mishka Booth (#3011).
