Ron English x Blackbook Toy – Evil MC OG Stealth (10.21)

17109-11

Blackbook Toy is sending out Ron English’s Evil MC in style.  The SuperSized Ronald goes out the way he came in with a twist.  OG Stealth pays tribute to the OG edition with a fun twist. This time around the body is cast in clear yellow vinyl which is visible in the torso and hands.  Evil’s MC-47 is up for the occasion as well with a mixed parts -- red+yellow design (nice!).  As they’ve done recently, BBT is also adding in a random variant with slit mouth makeup.  You can’t choose which you’ll get, but if you buy 2, you’ll get one of each.  As a fun bonus, the final edition of Evil MC comes with an Evil Burger key chain cast by Chop of Monster Farm.

Evil MC OG Stealth drops on Saturday (10.21) at 8 AM PDT from Blackbook Toy for 22,680 yen + s/h (~ $202).

Scott Tolleson x SeriousSillyK x Kidrobot – 5” Krampus Dunny (x2)

unnamed

If you’re a bit tired of  holiday cheer and jolly jingles, Kidrobot has just the thing for you.  Celebrate the season darkly with the new 5” Krampus Dunny from Scott Tolleson. Based on the 2016 DTA Dunny show piece from Scott and SeriouslySillyK, Krampus makes the rad (and rare) jump from custom to shiny production toy.  Krampus is available in both a standard black edition (800 pieces, $75) available at your favorite retailers including rotofugi and myplasticheart and an Exclusive KR Blue edition (200 pcs, $80) available only through Kidrobot.com.

While it might go without saying, this Krampus Dunny is pretty wild from the outrageous sculpt—check the horns and the tongue—to all the extras.  The 5” Dunny comes with chains/irons as well as a bushel of sticks and a little Dunny-ish child (1) that fit inside Krampus’ bucket that’s strapped to his back.  While we normally gravitate to the exclusive, the standard black edition is quite strong especially with the really nice rust effect on the chains.

Wood Candy Workshop -- Veg-A-Bow (10.24)

unnamed

Cameron Tiede will usher in fall with a brand-new wood figure from his Wood Candy WorkshopVeg-A-Bow features a cheerful character with rather stylish hair.  While he’s still focusing on high-quality wood—cherry and maple here—Cameron’s added a surprise splash of color.  The painted accents convey Veg-A-Bow’s energy and spunk and are a nice compliment to Wood Candy’s focus on natural materials. If they had looked this appealing and friendly, I just might have eaten more Veg-A-Bow’s as a kid.

Limited to 20 pieces designed and handmade in Flower Mound, Texas, Veg-A-Bow drops on Tuesday, October 24th from Wood Candy Workshop complete with a mini-print to be revealed next week.

Tapiei Toy Festival opens in just a few hours on Saturday (10.7).  Quite a few releases have caught our eyes and imagination including two new drops from Jim Dreams and Unbox available from the Unbox booths [A73/74].  First up is the fun Halloween Chunk which will be sold black-bagged because it features a GID chase. Jim’s pulled out all the scares for this one with the orange+black design, skeleton pattern, and ghostly snot bubble.  It’ll be available for 2700NT or ~$89.

The lovable yet rather brazen ‘Chunk’ character is back in a slightly bolder form and pose. Available in black and white editions, Long Time No See—nice rhyme—features the  beer-loving enjoying a wee little break.
