Tony Bui’s “Important Stuff” A Glow-In-The Dark Journey

Our good pal Tony Bui has just recently started a Kickstarter campaign to help fund a very fun and unique book! Check out “Important Stuff” A Glow-In-The-Dark Journey, a book that teaches children about some “Important Stuff” such as things like the Dinosaurs, Vaccines and the first civilization of Mesopotamia. Tony is known for his GID prints and wanted to extend that into a super rad children’s book. He’s got some awesome pledge packages to choose from, which includes goodies like pins, commissions and pizza parties. Be sure to take a look at this campaign page HERE and please help to get this book made!

Marsham Toy Hour – S2 E16 with wtfunks of Super7 and Vinyl Pulse

20478493_451904048514378_6519554987171774464_n

Guess who’s back, back again. That’s right! I got to join in once again on this weeks episode of Marsham Toy Hour with Gary Ham and Theresa Hawkins. We get into some fun Leaks and Sneaks, as well as a discussion about toys with moobs. We also go over toy photography versus stock styled photos when it comes to toys. There was also some chit chat about Martian Toys’ “The Next Great Blank Toy” Contest, which sounds very promising. Probably my favorite part of the episode was our Fantasy picks for our own little mini-figure draft. If you want to hear who I picked for my roster, you’re going to want to listen below!

Luke Chueh x Munky King – Possessed Black Exclusive for Grief Encounters Kickstarter

7c7d74f909a58960302d1ec5e87f55c6_original

It’s been a decade since Luke Chueh’s Possessed grabbed hold of collectors and refused to let ago.  Now, Munky King will rerelease its first art toy—arguably its most epic—with an updated 10th Anniversary sculpt. First out of the chute is the Possessed Black (as my soul) exclusive available as a reward for backers—$230 level—of the Kickstarter for the  Grief Encounters animated short series

Think of the 10th Anniversary Possessed as a rerelease and artist’s cut.  The intent is to make the classic figure available to a new generation of collectors and at the same time improve upon it artistically and technically.  The new figure matches the dimensions of the original and  features sculpted facial elements including the bear’s eyes and nose and the devil’s eyes, matching Luke’s evolving vision.  The 10th Anniversary edition will also add articulation to the right arm at the shoulder and drop the articulation at the wrist—OG shoulder articulation was limited to the left arm.  Finally, the new release will be re-engineered to fix the spinning devil issue that haunted the original.  Beyond the Kickstarter exclusive Black edition, the 10th Anniversary colorways will match the original colorways.

Grief Encounters is an ambitious series of planned animated shorts which offer an exploration of Luke’s classic paintings.  A collaboration between Luke, Munky King and director Stu Gamble’s Tiny Giants production house, the shorts expand on the paintings by immersing the viewer into the surrounding emotional landscape of each piece.  The debut Target short—streaming now—introduces us to the expanded story telling approach using a mix of animation and real-world elements.  The initial Kickstarter goal of $120k will fund creation of the first five shorts (Target include).

The extensive rewards include digital assets including storyboards and production files for aspiring filmmakers ($75) as well as several exclusive toy editions including HUNG GID ($90), Prisoner GID ($135),  6” Prisoner XL Kickstarter Exclusive Colorway ($300) , and of course the Possessed Black Kickstarter Exclusive ($230). c445a6b19ab3fc75fde37fb11c959af5_original

Oh, did we mention there’s a $150k stretch goal which will unlock a brand-new Combustion figure based on Luke’s popular painting?  This figure would be exclusive to Kickstarter and not released separately.

Coarse – Ethos Volume One: Cells (8.4)

unnamed (5)

Coarse embarks on an enigmatic, surreal journey with the new Ethos series.  First up is Cells, a wild vinyl piece (10.5”) featuring a cut-away view of a void character revealing that which lies within.  The ‘cells’, seen as a surging jumble of characters, seem to represent fantastic potential, limitless horizons, and rainbow bridges.  Cells is one of a precious few ‘it’ toys, the reason that we all started collecting ‘art toys’, things that shouldn’t exist, couldn’t exist, but yet…do.   

Looking at the Cells photos is a journey all on its own, a flash back to standardized exams and rotating 3D blocks.  This is the front, the side, that’s a unicorn, is that a fish?, oh…there’s cat. More than simply building desire for the figure, these promo shots make us yearn for a face-to-face experience, a chance to slowly consider it, rotate it, and attempt comprehension.  And, there’s more… the upcoming Ethos Volume 2 Strangers is darker with a tenuous link to reality.  Strangers makes Cells seem almost straightforward in comparison.

Cells will be available in two editions—the muted Narcosis and the vibrant, over saturated Paranoia—each limited to 299 pieces.  Coarse will release Cells on August 4th at 8:59 AM PDT from $185 from the Coarse Shop.

Mame Moyashi – Hattori Taro Pre-Order

hattoritaro__22236.1500580500 
Mame Moyashi, the talented folks behind the runaway-hit Maguro Senpai  and a growing line of seafood figures are breaking the mold with a new ‘zoo’ series.  First up for the new universe is Hattori Taro, a cat creature, or is it? At first glance, this is a walking fat cat, but when you get a look at the back, you realize… It’s a fat guy wearing a cat suit or <gulp> a skinned cat.  Hattori’s exaggerated cartoony sculpt fuels the visual punch line—love the cat face and the stubby paws.The dark humor reminds us of the brand’s OG Maguro figure—a tuna contemplating his umm… culinary future as an order of sashimi. 

Hattori Taro is available for pre-order for $68.99 through August 20th from select retailers including myplasticheart.  The crazy cat should be released into the wild sometime in November.

Huck Gee x Clutter – SKLFKR Untouched (7.28)

 

unnamed (5)

It’s here… The 24” of articulated menace that is Huck Gee’s SKLFKR makes it debut in the all-white Untouched edition from the folks at Clutter with 3D assistance from Cubo. The robotic gladiator features a removable battle axe, a face that lifts up to reveal a cockpit (ace touch!), and 11 points of articulation thanks to Cubo’s customer rubber gasket system.  Did we mention this is a beast? It tips the scale at over 18 pounds with a hybrid solid + rotocast resin build.

So how do you get your hands on this instrument of destruction?  Clutter will be offering the Untouched SKLFKR via one-week timed release starting on Friday (7.28) at 9 AM PDT  through to the following Friday (8.4) for $300 (+ s/h) from the Clutter web shop. Each of these will be hand cast and assembled at Clutter’s NY facility.   Beyond the massive size and impressive detail, we’re stoked that the hive mind has figured out how to make it a play thing, perfect for posing and table top battles.

Luke Chueh x Munky King x Tiny Giants -- ‘Grief Encounters’ Animation

20180594_488995844786638_3157362628318199808_n


It’s true! Luke’s Bear is making the jump to the screen with the upcoming Grief Encounters animation project—perhaps a series of shorts—done in collaboration with Munky King and Tiny Giants. So far, MK has released a fun teaser showing the bear trudging along the street with a bucket of paint… There’s also a still of the bear in front of a firing squad.  Definitely seems like a tale of ups (hah!) and downs (yep) for our favorite bear. 

20184294_1123582404407922_9077464305523228672_n

What else do we know?  MK has announced a Grief Encounters scavengers hunt for SDCC and also that the launch is set for 7.20. We’re pretty sure the launch is for the Kickstarter campaign to make the dream a reality.  If you’re going down to SD, you’ll definitely want to drop by MK’s booth [#4851].

Jermaine Rogers at SDCC – A New Treasure Trove of Toys

SDCCveileastad

Perhaps somewhere known only to the Dero, Jermaine Rogers has stashed away a toy chest full of figures, waiting for their time in the sun.  For SDCC, he’s cracked the chest wide open with at least five new art toy releases dropping from his booth [#4532].

SDCCveilad

Let’s start with Veil.  There are two new Veil: Specimen #72 editions-–Dero Skin (125 pcs) and Shadow (300 pcs). In addition, there’s the wild new Veil: East (10”, 500 pcs). The panda-esque new figure appears to feature a Specimen #72 head and body with newly sculpted arms—a great addition the new Veil family.
 

SDCCcreepingad17

Jermaine will also release a new edition of Dero CreepingSpectre (50 pcs) features super clear resin with lime green GID resin swirled throughout.  It looks fresh in regular light, and downright ghostly or is that ghastly in the dark.

BELIEVE

beLIEve—a new resin sculpt will make it’s debut at SDCC as well.  All we have so far is a teaser featuring a demon-like, four-fingered hand. Very interesting.  No word if this will see a release at Comic-Con or will be display-only with a release in the future.

SDCCCandymanad

For something completely different, Mr. Rogers has collaborated with the mad geniuses over at Special Ed. Toys on The Candyman resin action figure—an homage to Gene Wilder’s turn as Willy Wonka. This one will be released in limited quantities each day (7.19 – 7.23) in both a regular painted edition (50 pcs) and a Grape edition cast in translucent purple (25 pcs).

SDCCpinsAD

In addition to the new army of toys, there are also new pins! T here’s Dero Trance available in both standard and shadow variants.  If you’re looking to make a splash, there’s also the Aleppin Sane Glam edition featuring a speckled, silver/gray design. All of this goodness will be available at Jermaine’s booth [#4532].
