Pete Fowler x Super Plastic – Alternate ‘Bran’ Janky Colorway


Superplastic’s meteoric Janky Kickstarter ended last Friday with a whopping $547K!  If you missed out, fret not, as Superplastic has soft-launched their online store with two initial offerings – S1 Blindboxes *($10) and the Oh-No! 8” Superjanky by Mc Bess ($80).  The Series 1 product page shows a nice grid of designs including one we’ve haven’t seen before – an alternate colorway of the ‘Bran’ Janky from Pete Fowler.  This one is slightly more subdued than the wild blue+pink of the OG design. One other tidbit, both the S1 surprise boxes and the Superjanky are slated to ship in time for Christmas 2018 – which is slightly ahead of the previously mentioned January 2019 timeframe. There’s more to come with Superplastic officially launching their on-line store on Tuesday July 10th at 9 AM PDT.

Great Twins x Terminator 2 – T-800 Twelfth Scale Supreme Action Figure

An excellent way to relive the classic sci-fi action film, the T-800 Twelfth Scale Supreme Action Figure includes a Terminator 2 Judgment Day display stand to complete the experience. The debut figure in this new 1/12 series is slated for release in Fall 2018 from Great Twins.

Munky King x kaNO – The Messenger Ice Edition


Munky King has just released The Messenger Ice Edition resin figure (edition of 25, 6.5”)  on their web shop for $200.  This newest edition of the Colin Kapernick-inspired figure designed by kaNO is a low-run, premium resin edition featuring a beautiful clear frosted finish. The Ice Edition continues efforts to raise awareness and address the scourge of police brutality towards people of color, an injustice which inspired the ex-NFL Quarterback’s poignant protest of taking a knee during the national anthem prior to games.  I had a chance to see this edition up close on the episode of Toy Geeks Behind the Counter featuring MK-founder Patrick Lam and am happy to say photos hardly do it justice.  In person, it’s amazing.

Matt Gondek x Avenue de Arts x 3DRetro -- ‘Aggression’ Art Toy Aims for Fall 2018


Whoa.  Matt Gondek’s upcoming Aggression vinyl art toy will bring the wicked vision of his original painting (2018) of the same into glorious 3D.  In development with Avenue de Arts and 3DRetro who is handling production, the figure features a gnarly sculpt with a grizzled, drippy, ‘deconstructed’ Martian ready to slay with his battered blaster. This shot of the proto has us setup for an agonizing wait for the anticipated Fall ‘18 drop. If you can’t wait, you could scour the secondary market for his limited-edition tees featuring the Aggression image in red+gray which were available exclusively at his recent Clean Break pop-up in NYC.

Amy Sol x Munky King Art Toy Dreams


Amy Sol recently posted a snap from her meeting with Munky King featuring a few toys as well as her lovely WIP sculpture.  Munky King also reposted the image.  Could we see an Amy Sol vinyl art toy from Munky King? The outlook looks quite bright :)

While she’s known primarily as a painter, Amy has been creating sculptures alongside her paintings for a few years now. As with her paintings, many of her sculptures feature animal people such as the piece above. For reference, see photos of the completed piece as well as some of her previous sculptural work below. We’re looking forward to seeing what form transpires from the new collaboration.

Gary Baseman x APPortfolio – Ahwroo (6.11)


U: Corrected Release time. 7 PM PDT on 6.11.

It’s been while since we’ve seen a new art toy/sculpture from Gary Baseman.  Happily, the talented LA-based painter has collaborated with APPortfolio to bring his Ahwroo character to life as a polystone figure. Featured in many of his paintings, the beast contemplates a skull in its outstretched paw—perhaps the object of its affection or a moment of reflection.

Limited to 300 numbered pieces, Ahwroo stands roughly 8.2” tall (21 cm) and features a hand-painted design with varied textures for the fur and on the face. APPortfolio will release Ahwroo on Monday (6.11) at 7 PM PDT  for $340 from their web shop.

“It's Ahwroo, my vicious character that is so hungry for affection, he can draw blood and kill the object of his affection.”  [Press]

Frank Kozik x Kidrobot – Redrum 5” Dunny


Redrum.  Beyond the Labbit, the blood-splattered homage to the Shining is one of Frank Kozik’s calling cards.  Kidrobot has just dropped the latest Redrum Dunny in the newish 5” size.  This one follows the 3” (2004), 20” (2005) and 8” versions (2006).  The new version features the classic design and comes ready for mayhem with  bloody banana and hatchet accessories.


The 5” Redrum is available in the OG edition (1000 pcs, $39.99) from select retailers including myplasticheart and of course Kidrobot.com.  KR also released a GID exclusive (250 pcs) which quickly sold out.

 IMG_2179 copy

Next up for Fools Paradise’s new XL line of 20” vinyl figures is Three King: Two Three.  The giant  Fool version of his Airness dwarfs the OG release and features an alternate head with bull horns – nice touch.
