Fools Paradise -- J.P. Toys Exclusive Confession Set Pre-Order
Back in May, J.P. Toys released their Thailand Toy Expo Confession Set from Fools Paradise. If you haven’t already purchased the set (16.9 x 13.7 x 11.4”), Fools Paradise is now offering 50 of the 100 total sets for pre-order ($498 including Global EMS shipping). These will ship at the end of June.
The neon-tinged exclusive ramps up the intensity of the Star Wars inspired piece beyond that of the original. As you can see in the NSFW closeups (after the jump), the vibrant green and magenta skulls revealed through the shattered helmets combined with an extra dose of blood spray delivers a strong, visceral impression.
Pobber – ‘Make Toys, Not War’ Tees (6.6)
Singaporean toy brand Pobber created their ‘Make Toys, Not War’ T-shirts for the Art Toy Culture Korea show back in May. Now, due to collector interest Pobber will offer the shirt in both black and white designs in a much more accessible online release on June 6th @ Midnight for $24 (+ s/h) from Pobber.com. While both work, we’d go with the black for the two-tone text.
Sket-One x Huck Gee – Hazardous Taste (06.13)
