Rice Studio x Unbox – Monsterbox: Kosushi and Flappenmad (4.14)

  Poster2sm

First released in Shanghai last weekend, the new Monsterbox figures from Rice Studios x Unbox will be available for all at 6 AM PDT on Saturday (4.14) for $55 each (+ s/h) from the Unbox web shop.  Designed by Scottdiggs and Money, Kosushi and Flappenmad are interdimensional terrors who emerge from their secret portals—a.k.a. sneaker boxes. Featuring an appealing 80’s childhood toy vibe, these 5.5” soft vinyl figures feature articulated arms—apparently swappable too—as well as removable box tops for stackable fun.  Let’s hope there are more Monsterbox beasts waiting in the wings.

Filter017 x Unbox – Mix Badger Color Edition

00

Filter017 have just released a full-color, painted-edition of their stylin’ Mix Badger vinyl from Unbox.  Previously released in three different unpainted colorways, Filter017’s mascot really comes to life with this deluxe color treatment.  The paint enhances the detail in the badger’s face and his clothes – the jacket in particular looks super sharp.  As the press release mentions, Mix Badger is a nod to a  throwback 60’s style appearance realized only through today’s production tech.  While there isn’t a best paint DTA yet, the new OG Mix Badger would be a serious contender.

The Mix Badger Color edition (8”)  is available now from Filter017’s web store for NT2980 (~$102) + s/h.  What are you waiting for… Go… now.
