Retroband – Dracumeats (5.12)

 31136697_1346355095508789_5965643715115483136_n


Dracumeats is almost upon us. Retroband has been slowly revealing the various elements that are going into this month’s crazy, super ambitious release. From what he’s posted so far, the Dark One will have a cap, a bat head arm (stump) accessory, a bat amulet, glass eyes and more.  These masterpieces drop this Saturday (5.12) as an online release – not a lottery.  Presumably from his web store.  We’ll share the final pic as soon as Retroband posts one.

Ron English x POP LIFE – Poultry Times Two: Pete and Rex

31954576_2159508980742731_6117226597188632576_n

Ron English just might be one of the most prolific art toy designers at the moment with new releases, painted protos, and sculpts seemingly appearing weekly.  Right now Ron seems to have chicken on his mind.  Yesterday he showed off his fun Poultry Pete sculpt and today comes a shot of a huge Poultry Rex figure flaunting a menacing design which has a more chicken-like head and a more dino-like body compared to the previous smaller figure from Toy Art Gallery.  Based on the hash tags and a bit of context, these both appear to be in the works from POP LIFE.

Superplastic continues to spoil us with design teases/reveals for their imminent Janky platform launch (5.15).  This AM we have our first look at Mr. Kabutomushi from TADO.  Their turn on the brand-new figure is a cute little beetle character.

 31421799_167857694049635_8751060114015780864_n

Updated: New photo with sharper graphics.

About a week ago Fools Paradise pulled back the curtain on its upcoming large format FooXL vinyl line (~20”) with the reveal of a large Three King 23 figure.  Turns out that the line will launch with a big fool.  XL ‘89 Lowfool will be available for pre-order on May 15th from the Fools Paradise site.  With the updated PR image, the graphic logos are in bold black now including ‘Super Me’ (heh…) logo across the chest. ‘89Lowfools also has some interesting tattoos including a dripping (bloody?) superman logo.
