Paulus Hyu x Pobber x Kurobokan – Offspring Nimbus


And then there were three!  In collaboration with Pobber, Paulus Hyu is gearing up to let his latest version of Nimbus into the world.  The Offspring sofubi figure features a squat version of the upright Sleepwalker.  Seen above in a clear test pull, Paulus has also posted pics of several other colors as well.  We’re not sure what color he’ll debut in, but we do know that the lil’ one will drop at DesignerCon (11.19 – 11.20) in the Kurobokan booth [1123].

Clogtwo x Mighty Jaxx – War Mouse


He’s not Mickey and definitely not from the happiest place on earth. Quite the opposite,  War Mouse from Clogtwo and Mighty Jaxx is one bad, bad mouse.  While he prefers stealth to head on aggression, his menacing, devil may care pose with two precariously held grenades betrays his willingness to go out in a blaze of glory if need be. Limited to 200 pieces, the 10 1/4” pvc figure is available for pre-order from Mighty Jaxx for $100 (+ s/h) and will ship out in the first quarter of 2017.

"The War Mouse is a stealth-like soldier from the guerrilla forces. Trained like a ninja, he is the master of camouflage. An indomitable figure capable of infiltrating enemy's territories seamlessly, he moves through the shadows without a sound. While he is the toughest amongst other troopers to be captured or killed, he is ever-ready to die for his allegiance." - CLOGTWO

Seen: Craola -- Stair Monsta Signing at 3DRetro


Last Saturday evening, Greg ‘Craola’ Simkins released and signed his surreal Stair Monsta figure for a large group of collectors and fans at producer 3DRetro’s location in Burbank.  Joined by sculptor Kevin Pasko who brought both Stair Monsta and the previous Ralf figure to 3D life, Craola debuted perhaps the best vinyl translation of his work to date. Monsta is a striking orca and cow hybrid—blended as only he can—masquerading as a harmless bunny. Lurking in the dark and seen as a menacing shadow, Stair Monsta is one of a long list of bedtime impediments and terrors faced by Ralf and his brother in the I’m Scared stop-motion short.

Fresh from the film festival circuit, collectors and fans were treated to an eagerly anticipated screening of the film in the store’s parking lot turned theater. Fun and humorous, the short delivers animated poetry visualizing childhood fears and imagination run amok, brought on by looming sleep time.

In addition to Stair Monsta and Ralf, collectors had plenty of additional Craola collectibles to choose from including the I’m Scared Mook, Tricky Treator Socks, Join Me giclee, and raffle tickets to win a Craola original coffin panel painting.
