40376755_263015314351077_7932446359093233227_n

Taiwanese artist Shon is working on a new Ninja soft vinyl toy. Tora Kun is an apprentice Ninja, learning the mystic ways from Shinobi, his cat ninja figure.  The sculpt features the trainee hard at work focusing his energy.  In a bit of a break from his previous toys, Tora Kun has a very expressive face sculpt and interestingly seems to have an inset eye.  We’re looking forward to learning more about this upcoming release.

Healeymade ventures over once again to the Dark Side with his recently released Astroknight (Leader) resin figure. His handcast resin rendition of Kylo Ren is as stylish as it is sinister.  This one is available now from Healeymade for $70.  As with David Healey’s other awesome art action figures, this one stands on its own without need for parody, over-the-top joke, or snark.  Not to be missed.  Perhaps the last Knight ?

The Perplexing Pink Wolf Bat Thing Mother Takes Flight from Joseph Harmon and Toy Art Gallery (9.21)

 unnamed

Toy Art Gallery will release the Perplexing Pink Wolf Bat Thing Mother (5”) soft vinyl figure from Joseph Harmon on Friday (9.21) at 12 PM PDT for $55 from the TAG web shop.  This Perplexing Pink version of Harmon’s fun, quirky character just might be our favorite so far—the vivid sprays pop nicely against the milky vinyl and the subtle negative space helps give the illusion of luminescence.

Mummie Man Makes the Jump to Color from Rockin’ Jelly Bean x Blackdots

Mummie-Man_1st_1

It’s been about two years since Blackdots first released the Freaky Monster Village: Mummie Man sofubi from Rockin’ Jelly Bean in an unpainted blue edition, followed by a few GID drops.  Now, comes the 1st color edition  with a white + red paint scheme which fleshes out the toy design and Motorken’s sculpt.  With its lighthearted, cartoon-inspired take on a classic monster and impressive size (9.45”), Mummie Man should add plenty of life to any collection. It’s available now from Yamakichiya for ¥12,960 (~ $115).

‘Get Animated’ with Bugs Bunny and Tweety from Pat Lee (9.20)

unnamed

The Get Animated series of figures from ToyQube, Soap Studio and Warner Brothers brings together popular artists to re-imagine classic WB cartoon characters.  To date, the popular project has announced and revealed toys from six Hong Kong-based artists: Eric So, Kenny Wong, Pat Lee, Chino Lam, Pucky & Tik Ka. It turns out that what’s been shown so far is about half of what’s planned with ToyQube set tounveil the USA artist roster in October!  

unnamedunnamedunnamed

So far the figures have only been available as pre-orders in Asia from Soap Studios. Now, ToyQube is starting to take pre-orders for USA collectors. First up from ToyQube are a pair of figures from Pat Lee, best known for his comic book work for both DC and Marvel.  Both his Bugs Bunny (13”, $179.99)  and Tweety (9”, $169.99) vinyl + pvc toys feature highly-stylized dissected/cut-away designs that create an irregular mosaic by mixing bits of  each character’s iconic appearance with anatomic details.

Bugs features a wild, dynamic design blending the traditional gray+white with vivid, fleshy pink.  From his mismatched eyes to his bulging heart and curious leg shackles, the toy offers surprises and unexpected details.

unnamed unnamedunnamed

Pat Lee’s Tweety design just might out do his Bugs, no easy feat.  Here Tweety is recast as a force to be reckoned with.  A stylized Sylvester lurches out from his brain, perhaps in an attempt to flee the enraged canary with his angry violet eyes and almost mech-like power.  The patches of gray, fibrous anatomical details lends Tweety a futuristic, mechanically menacing appearance.

ToyQube will offer pre-orders of the Bugs Bunny and Tweety Get Animated vinyl figures from Pat Lee starting on Thursday (9.20) at 9 AM PDT from the TQ web shop.  Tweety is expected in December, while Bugs Bunny is due to ship in late January 2019
