Huck Gee – Gummi Blanks (4.22)
Huck Gee has just announced the latest evolution of his Blank platform. These are 7” tall, come in two flavors (err… colorways) and are delicious. Ok, so they aren’t candy (darn) but they still look pretty tasty if you ask us. Shiny with what appears to be just a hint of translucency. And, just because Huck is Huck, these look great in the dark too—yep, GID!
Limited to 50 signed/numbered pieces, the Gummi Blanks drop on Saturday (4.22) at 10 AM PDT for $125 (+ s/h) from Huck’s site. These tick all the boxes: eye-catching design, small batch, hand-crafted resin, made right here in the USA. These are slated to ship in 3-4 weeks.
Martin Hsu – Dragon Boy Super Hits Wax
After considerable development the sculpt for Martin Hsu’s Dragon Boy Super is done and finalized. In fact, the follow-up to his original Dragon Boy has hit an exciting milestone – wax proto! In comparison to the original figure which had a slender, subtle appearance, Super brings a more action-oriented, humorous take. The new Dragon Boy will come boxed with a mini Dragon Dog as seen in the 3D render above (Roberto Maki).
If you look closely, the figure’s base shape might look similar. Recognize it? In collaboration with Rotobox, Martin incorporated the Mini Cel platform into the design. Now that the sculpt is done and the wax proto is done, we’re wondering when? Hopefully it won’t be too long before we hear about a release for Dragon Boy Super which is being produced by PowerCore and VTSS Toys.
Okedoki – Lover Boy Debuts at ToyCon UK 2017 (4.29 – 4.30)
With oversized glasses, a rather large noggin and a form-fitting suit, Okedoki’s new 11” figure turns on the charm. The cartoony sculpt definitely takes us back to the adorable, can’t be stopped Urkel and the simple fun of 90’s sitcom TV. Sculpted and painted by Okedoki, this release continues her focus on charming, uplifting pieces while changing up the aesthetic a bit.
The very first figure from the Original Version (edition of 8) will be available at ToyCon UK 2017 (4.29 – 4.30) from the Collect and Display booth for £576 ($720). The signed and numbered figures come in a stylish Canadian pine box with Plexiglass front and what appears to be shaped-foam to keep Mr. Heartbreaker safe and sound. The rest of this first edition will be released later in the year.
Scott Wilkowski – El Dorado Available Now
El Dorado lives. Scott Wilkowski has just released his new 6” resin figure cast in a mix of translucent colors featuring internal demon bones. These are available now for $160 (+ s/h) from his site. Collectors can list color preferences which Scott will try to accommodate.
