Yoskay Yamamoto x Mighty Jaxx Mystery Project
Mighty Jaxx never ceases to amaze with the number of art toy projects they’ve got in development. The Singaporean brand recently teased a new figure project with Yoskay Yamamoto with a hint that the pictured piece is the master sculpt – more than likely hand-carved by Yoskay in wood. Our bet is that this will be produced in resin, though a wood figure would be awesome.
Lady Aiko x Tomenosuke – Pearl White Lady Butterfly (4.26)
Tomenosuke is about to release the fourth edition of Lady Aiko’s exquisite Lady Butterfly resin. Limited to just ten pieces, the new edition features a white pearlescent finish with a clear butterfly mask. The Pearl Butterfly will be released directly from Tomenosuke for $550 (includes global shipping) on Friday (4.26) @ 7 PM PDT [Saturday (4.27) @ 11 AM JST].
Buff Monster – Melty Misfits ‘Double Heather’ Cheap Toy + Metal Misfits(4.25)
As you know by now, Buff Monster loves anything and everything Garbage Pail Kids. Lately, he’s combined his love of the classic sticker trading card series with his own art to create homage products. First there were the Melty Misfits trading cards and now comes his homage to the Garbage Pail Kids’ Cheap Toys – ten 1 3/8” figures released in four colorways.
Now, Buff is about to unleash his first Melty Misfits Cheap Toy based on the OG Double Heather toy. Buff’s version of Double Heather twists the Siamese twin action by swapping the girls’ faces with that of his ice cream dude characters. The new figure was sculpted by Mitch Martinez. Cast by Healeymade, the figures will be available in the four classic colors from Buff’s web shop on Thursday (4.25) @ 11 AM EDT for $15 each (+ s/h) or $55 (+ s/h) for a set of all four.
Speaking of the Melty Misfits, Buff will also release his special subset in a pack, ‘Metal Misfits’, a collaboration with Lamour Supreme on Thursday as well. Each of the eight regular cards features a stand-off between both artists’ characters. Each pack features a complete set of the regular cards and a chance to score the rare 9th chase card. The packs will be available for $5 each (+ s/h) on Thursday (4.25) @ 11 AM EDT directly from Buff Monster.
