Dual Toy Drops on Saturday in the San Gabriel Valley
If you’re in the LA area, Saturday (1.19) is a perfect time to visit the San Gabriel Valley for a double dose of toy releases / artist signings. First up at 1 PM is the release of DeKorner’s exclusive Sunny B Deadbeet by Scott Tolleson at Frank and Sons in the City of Industry. If you’ve never been to Frank and Sons, you need to check it out at least once. Imagine a convention style collectibles show that’s open every Wednesday and Saturday –- a very unique shopping experience.
After you’ve checked out Frank and Sons, head on over to the BAIT flagship store in nearby (10 minute drive max) Diamond Bar for the 5 PM release/signing of their exclusive Fire and Ice Strife & Sire vinyl from Nathan Hamill and 3DRetro.
It’s not everyday that the SGV is the center of toy action in SoCal, but that’s what’s what on Saturday.
Kathie Olivas x Tomenosuke + CP – Calliope Jackalope Ivory (1.23)
Heads up Kathie Olivas collectors. It’s been a little less than a month since we first mentioned her Calliope Jackalope Ivory sofubi figure (2nd edition so far). The wait is almost over, the new figure from the joint Tomenosuke + CP sofubi brand will drop next week for USA collectors. Limited to 120 pieces (60 via CP, 60 via Tomenosuke), 60 pieces will be stocked in randomly timed batches over at CircusPosterus.com on Wednesday (1.23) for $95/each. If you a get ‘sold out’ message, keep trying –- it adds to the thrill of the chase, no? No word yet on the Tomenosuke release for collectors not living in North America.
