Ron English x Blackbook Toy – Tony the Mousezilla for Five Points Festival


Blackbook Toy will release Tony the Mousezilla from Ron English at Five Points Festival (6.2 – 6.3).  The newest edition of Mousezilla is inspired by Ron’s Fat Tony Cereal Killer vinyl, a critique of sugary cereal.  BBT has done a really nice job of translating the Fat Tony concept to the Mousezilla sofubi.  All the details are here, from the face, the scarf, and of course the numerous tiger stripes.   Tony the Mousezilla will be available at Blackbook Toy’s booth [#330] at 5 Points (6.2 – 6.3) for $150.

Plaseebo x Planet-X – SUM Handpaints at Five Points Fest (6.2 – 6.3)

 Conge-header-Front copy

The second coming of SUM hits Brooklyn at the Five Points Festival with the release of several handpainted one-off editions of Plaseebo’s vengeful giant turtle beast produced by Planet-X [booth #328]. First released in small numbers as a polyurethane resin back around 2006, the new SUM is cast in soft vinyl and appears to retain the original’s tremendous detail especially in terms of the accumulated junk and debris embedded in his body.


The Five Points  one-offs are hand-painted by  Bob Conge (Plaseebo), feature an integrated color-changing LED light, and are hand-signed.  Look for the first production run drop in July.  Be sure to hit the jump for SUM’s origin story.

Brutherford Industries x Kean University – Otto at Five Points Festival


Ryan Brutherford’s Industrial Design students at Kean University created Otto as practical experience of the entire process of designing a toy, producing it and bringing it to market. Under his guidance, they conceptualized, sculpted (traditional and digital) and presumably 3d-printed protos which were used to make molds of Otto.    In partnership with the Five Points Festival, his students will make their oh-so-happy pup on demand for customers with the help of Ryan and his nifty rotocast machine. Drop by the Brutherford/Kean University booth [#528] to check out Otto in person.

Josh Divine – Astro Crash at Five Points Festival


Whoa.  Josh Divine’s Astro Crash is making the the leap from genius enamel pin (Strangecat Toys) to full-fledged art toy.  Proof that even the mightiest have their down days, the figure seen above in a WIP shot really captures the moment of impact nicely. The dynamic pose looks amazing in 3D: Astro face-planted with legs over his head and his arms splayed flat on the ground. Astro Crash will make his debut at Five Points Festival in Brooklyn (6.2 –6.3), presumably as a prototype. Be sure to drop by the StrangeCat Toys booth [#423] to grade Astro Crash’s landing.

PHASE2 x Unbox Industries – Mixed Parts Abomination Deity Guardian for Five Points Festival


First revealed in February, Unbox Industries will debut the Abomination Deity Guardian from NYC graff legend PHASE2 at Five Points Festival via Toy Tokyo’s booth. First out of the chute is this crazy Mixed Parts edition which flaunts Phase 2’s design and sculpt work on this trippy vision.

The Mixed Parts image matches one of two versions of the figure first shown back in February.  Here’s wondering whether the version with the tentacle-style head+ hands is being made as well.
