Seri Norica - Kaiju Icey Debuts at TTF 2017


Japanese artist Seri Norica will release an exclusive edition of her as yet-unreleased  Kaiju Icey sofubi—her first art toy—at Taipei Toy Festival 2017 (10.7 – 10.10) at the Touma Trooper Creative booths. Super Kawaii with just a touch of sadness—dig the expression and the little hands.   Inspired by the popular Japanese soda with the marble-in-the-bottle dispenser, the exclusive Raumune edition (50 pieces) is cast in light blue with a pale pink ‘cone’.   After TTF, the figure will be released online sometime in December.  The triple scoop shot above features the Ramune edition plus what we believe are tests of upcoming flavors.

Luke Chueh x Munky King -- Grief Encounters Exclusive Rewards: Prisoner Kuma XL & Possessed Chrome


The Grief Encounters Kickstarterfunding five initial short animations inspired and expanding on Luke Chueh’s paintings is in the final stretch and ends on Sunday, 8.20 at Midnight PDT just a week to go.  In return for helping Luke, Munky King and director Stu Gamble realize their animated vision, you dear collector can come away with several Kickstarter exclusive toys.

In addition to the previously mentioned Black (as my soul) 10th Anniversary Possessed, MK has just pulled back the curtain on two tempting toys. First up is the Prisoner Kuma Kush XL ($300 reward level) which is the first of the larger 6” Prisoner resins inspired by the popular ‘herb’ strain.  And if you’re looking for something truly head turning, there’s the blingtastic Possessed Chrome ($750 reward level, 20 pieces maximum) which starts with the upcoming 10th Anniversary Possessed vinyl and turns it into a collection centerpiece via the magic of chrome—shiny silver chrome on the bear and wicked red chrome on the devil.
