Pushead at NYCC 2013


Pushead’s annual NYCC event is the highlight of the show for many collectors since it’s one of only two main releases each year, the other being at SDCC.  This year’s NYCC event was on Saturday afternoon.  As expected, it drew a large crowd waiting outside of the Toy Toyko booth for their turn to go into the back room and see what what Pus had in store.  Right before those trips began, Pus and crew dropped the black curtain to reveal the mother lode including a new pirate figure with a bandage wrapped head, and lower serpent style torso, several new Hydros,  a blue + bright orange Nag Ball, a new Fink Shit, and a massive new two-headed gorilla from Hirota (display only?) as well as a smaller new figure.  It goes without saying, but collectors seemed blown away – the selection exceeded their already high expectations. This is the second straight release that Pus has released a new sculpt – exciting times.

Secret Walls x Kidrobot – Lamour Supreme Vs. MAD at NYCC



For this year’s NYCC, Secret Walls and Kidrobot have teamed up to bring attendees live art battles pitting top artists against one another for 90 minute black + white drawing competitions.  On Friday, L’amour Supreme and MAD squared off against each.  MAD created a sweet piece blending multiple characters together including MAD*L, Guardians, and his speech bubble character.  Lamour paid homage to the comic theme with a gnarly batman/wolverine mashup, tearing his way right out of the board.

In the end, the crowded decided the winner via applause measured on a noise meter. Lamour edged out MAD, but really it was hard to pick one strong piece against the other as the styles are very different.

    NYCC 13: Skinner x David Healey ‘Mother’


    Skinner and David Healey have released their wicked collaboration ‘Mother’.  The first edition is cast in jet black resin with crimson red eyes and a white scarf.  While the figure is pretty sweet, we have to talk about the packaging.  Mother comes in the mother of blister packs with a custom tomb-shaped blister set against a triple-xl sized backing board with wicked Skinner art, printed by the talented  folks at Sidekick Labs.

    Mother is available for $200 from the Critical Hit Booth [#110] at NYCC.  Oh, and in case you’re wondering, yes – Mother does stand on her own though she demands respect ;-)

    NYCC 13: Matt Siren x myplasticheart – Ghost Girl Sofubi sculpt


    Surprise!  myplasticheart is showing their upcoming Ghost Girl sofubi from Matt Siren in sculpt form. Smaller than the vinyl they released a few years back, the new made-in-Japan figure will feature pluggable head decoration (skull, flower, and bow shown). It may be the case that each edition will come with one specific decoration rather than say all three.  Plus there’s a separate skull that will likely be inserted into translucent ghost girl editions.   Very cool.
