myplasticheart NYCC Exclusives Revealed So Far

unnamed

NYCC (10.5 –10.8) is sneaking up on us all.  NYCC stalwart myplasticheart will be offering enticing exclusives as well as an amazing selection of blind-box figures from booth #888 – auspicious number ftw. mph has revealed four exclusives/debuts so far.  First up is the brand-new kawaii The Dessert Oracle by Sad Salesman ($50, vinyl) with a triple stack of sweet satisfaction.  If sofubi is your thing, mph will have the new MITT Rainbow from Six Twentyeight ($42, vinyl) featuring a colorful, gradient-loving bumper car bulldog.  Monsters?  Konatsu delivers with a new  clear green Daioh Negora (price tbd) with gold, silver and black accents.

Hmm… Are we forgetting something?  Pins!!! Fear not enamel enthusiasts, mph will have the brand-new Pocket Pork Dumpling pins from Shawnimals in two designs ($10 each).

Maybe I’m just getting old and things are blurring together but with the rise of several new-ish Asian conventions (TTE, ATC, BTS, Toy Soul)  it feels like convention season runs almost year around. Taipei Toy Festival follows right on the heels of NYCC opening on 10.7 and running through the 10th.  And… DesignerCon drops just over a month later (11.11-11.12).  It’s a promising though pricey  development.

Frank Kozik x Blackbook Toy – Lil Alex and Dim Devil Edition (9.22)

17085-13

 

“Wild”, that’s how we’d describe the next edition of Frank Kozik’s A Clockwork Carrot sofubi figures from Blackbook Toy. Officially dubbed the Devil Edition, the new Lil Alex and Dim figures (~ 11.2”)  feature a super vivid combo of mint and black vinyl with purple accents throughout. If you look closely you’ll note some new paint treatments including bloodshot eyes.  As is quickly becoming their tradition, The Devil Edition figures include an alternate variant, this time around featuring mint shirt and pant cuffs.  Each figure includes removable masks, this time with a bright red nose—Rudolph has newfound competition. If you’re wondering about the color differences in the product photos, we’ve checked and both Alex and Dim feature the same ‘mint’ coloring which is apparently  greenish-blue rather than the more pronounced blue hue seen in some of the Dim photos.

The Devil Edition Lil Alex and Dim figures drop individually  on Friday (9.22) at 8 AM PDT from Blackbook Toy for 13500 yen (~ $123) + s/h each . You’ll be able to select the regular or mint cuff variant when you order.

Alex Pardee x ToyQube – Half a Nice Day (9.22)

IMG_1881
Alex Pardee’s sarcastic poke-in-the-eye Half a Nice Day vinyl (10”)will be released by ToyQube on Friday (9.22) at 10 AM CDT  for $95 (+ s/h).  First seen as a proto at Five Points Festival in May, the new figure features a thin smiley face character who has clearly seen better days.  The visual gag works extremely well here thanks to the strong sculpting and really well-done blood and trauma paint effects. Interestingly, the production version does without the eyeball hanging by a thread from the proto.   Half a Nice Day follows the Astronaut, Alex’s extremely well-received first collaboration with TQ which took home a DTA.

RecycleC x Toy Art Gallery – Takhon (9.22)

unnamed (2)

Toy Art Gallery's imposing Takhon is a new figure from Thai artist RecycleC.  Inspired by Thailand’s Phi Ta Khon festival (ghost festival) and its distinctive ghost masks, the 7.5” figure features two ghost buddies attached to Takhon via chain and a stylish, removable sword. Takhon will debut in an unpainted flesh colorway dropping on Friday (9.22) at 12 PM PDT from the TAG Web Shop for $95 (+ s/h).  

The evocative sculpt has intricate details throughout, especially  on the face/head and sword hilt and ornamentation. It’s quite posable with seven points of articulation (head, arms, wrists and legs)  Perhaps best known for his insane Rajawanorn figure,  RecycleC’s collector base should grow with this new vision.

Buff Monster – 5” Mister Melty in Chrome (9.15)

unnamed

So the latest Buff Monster news is mixed.  On the plus side, he’s releasing a 5” Chrome Mister Melty figure (10 pcs, $200 + s/h)  on Friday (9.15) at 10 AM PDT  over on Staymelty.com.  . The down side?  This fancy version of the OG/Classic Mister Melty is the last chrome edition planned.  That’s a shame since the 3” set I purchased is pretty awesome with a sweet, blinged out mirror-like surface that looks to be quite durable.  Apparently, the process of making these is quite involved.  So… if you’re looking for a chrome Mister Melty, now is the time.

HK Urban Vinyl pioneer Eric So revisits his old school style for the Beijing Toy Show—just begun—with two new Estate figures – Edison (Edison Chen) and Sam (Sam Lee). Estate Sam may come with a mini blue sub in honor of his Subscrew apparel brand.  New pics from Eric suggest that the hoodie is removable (perhaps by removing the head).   Estate Edison continues the celebrity’s EDCMonkey alter ego. These will apparently be available at booth B08. 

In addition to the new drops, the Beijing Toy Show is celebrating Eric’s work with a huge Art of Eric So exhibition – justly deserved.

Kaiju One – Super Sun Sun Bling Bling Treasure Lottery (thru 10.10)

21227263_1248298981943025_3819753122025177088_n


Back in June we wrote about Kaiju One’s impressive and quite ambitious Super Sun Sun sofubi, a fierce take on the legend of the Monkey King.  Ever since then we’ve had one question… when?  Thankfully the time has come.  Kaiju One is offering the debut  Bling Bling Treasure Edition (~ 10.6”) in both Standard ($200)  and Deluxe packages ($250) via lottery ending on Sunday (9.10) at 8:59 AM PDT.  Shipping is $30 for Asia and $50 to everywhere else. See below for full package breakdowns and lottery instructions.

The Bling Bling Treasure Edition features an impeccable red+yellow paint scheme that brings out all the intricate detail in the legendary warrior’s body and armor.  Kaiju One’s inclusion of  numerous high quality accessories--both PVC and Metal—should offer collectors a 1:6 style experience in terms of playability and display flexibility.  Super Sun Sun supports a removable hand system with up to  five sets of hands depending on the package.  In addition, he’s ready for battle with four combat plags complete with metal poles, a Rod of Naraka in PVC and Metal (Deluxe), and an Avici sword (Deluxe) complete with removable sheath.  The Deluxe edition also showcases Sun Sun’s theatrical side with an included Chinese Opera Mask and Headdress.

Not content with releasing a compelling sofubi figure with strong sculpting and detailed paint, Kaiju One is pushing the boundaries to deliver Super Sun Sun as a fully realized character ready to bash heads with numerous weapons and regalia. Dope.

    Ron English x Mighty Jaxx Take on the Staple Pigeon (9.2)

    Staple-RonEnglish-Homeblock-Product
    Ron English’s take on Staple’s iconic pigeon is menacing, stylish and of course, grinning.  Beyond the signature skull grin, the interlocking jigsaw of color that runs from head to toe is a striking nod to Jeff Staple’s impactful design and fashion.  The colorful, sculpted-in sections make the toy with a funky, hip vibe. The patchwork of curves, notches, and spiky lines weave their magic into an eye-catching whole. 

    Seemingly lacking an official name, the new figure we’re calling ‘Pigeon Grin’  is Mighty Jaxx’s second art toy collab with Staple and follows the dramatic Washizu from James Jean.  The Pigeon Grin vinyl (8”) will be available for pre-order from Mighty Jaxx on Saturday (9.2) at 7 AM PDT for $120 (+ s/h).

    They are available at special events in China from September 1st through the 2nd and also online from APPortfolio on Sunday (9.3) at 9 AM PDT for $510 (+ s/h) for the Shocking Pink and $1020 (+ s/h) for the set of the Pink and the Dark Force.  For full info, check out @APPortfolio.
