17267553_1847134412241388_2372387093604204544_n

Craig Gleason's Ghoul character will soon be available as a beautiful Japanese Soft Vinyl figure! This release could not happen without the help of Justin Ishmael and Grody Shogun and we cannot wait to see some paint apps on these badboys. There is no release date as of yet, as the above is just a test-pull. So be sure to stay tuned with us on any updates and be sure to give Craig and Justin a follow in IG for hopefully some process shots!

 unnamed 

Amanda Visell and Michelle Valigura kick off their new Wonderland-inspired resin series with the first release: Alice and the White Rabbit, available now from Switcheroo for $90 + s/h.  Limited to 25 pieces, the set comes with a custom header card featuring the art from an original painting designed for the figures. It sounds like new figures in the series will have their own specific header card.  At some point, Amanda will offer the original header-card paintings…fun!

Cartoon Network’s Adventure Time x Mighty Jaxx – XXRAY Finn, Jake and BMO (03.18)

Mighty_Jaxx_Jason_Freeny_Adventure_Time_XXRAY_Characters_Resized

Mighty Jaxx has finally been revealed and given a release date of their latest XXRAY figure, Finn the Human from Carton Network’s Adventure Time. They also showed off two surprise characters, which we had hoped would come to fruition and totally have! Joining Jason Freeny’s line of dissected characters is Finn’s number 2, Jake the Dog and his loyal gaming system, BMO. These will be released together, this Saturday, March 18th through Mighty Jaxx. If they are just like their other XXRAY figures, we estimate these to retail $19.99 a piece. These are noted as “pending licensor final approval”, which makes us think these figures may or may not look exactly like the photos seen above. Let’s hope so because these are great!

King Korpse has been on a tear lately.  As soon as a new edition is released, it’s quickly devoured by collectors.  So it’s exciting to see that James Groman and Instinctoy are working on a new ‘Threat’ head-sculpt.  Aptly described, the new sculpt features an enraged King Korpse with his mouth agape.  We can’t wait to see more on this fearsome development.

AKA Curious Boy – East to West: XuanZang

bronze version5

Shanghai-based artist Curious Boy (@akacuriousboy) has just released his new art toy, XuanZang.  The new figure is the third release in his East to West series, a hip-hop infused take on the legendary Chinese tale Journey to The West.  XuanZang offers a new vision of the tale’s central character, a monk, making the perilous journey. The artist’s stylized warrior monk figure features a striking, elaborate helmet/cloak (removable) symbolizing the White Dragon Horse.  He also flashes a modified version of Jay Z’s signature hand gesture.

XuanZang stands 9” without cloak about 10.25” with it.  The figure will be available in four planned versions including Bronze (above) which features an impressive patina effect and Golden (below).  Both are available now for $150 (including global shipping). To order drop an email to name.lau@qq.com.
