Kevin Nam x myplasticheart – Robo Top (04.30)

RoboTop Group Red VS Blue

Kevin Nam is out with a new Rock Paper Scissors resin top figure! Introducing the Robo Top, a playable art toy that you can play RSP against or with others if you have two. Each figure measures approximately 2” tall and will be available in red or blue. Each colorway is limited to 10 pieces at $15 each and will be available at myplasticheart on Thursday, April 30th.

Robo Top is the second rock-paper-scissors top that I have made. After creating Big Top, I realized that there were a lot of problems I could fix. I learned a lot about the mechanics behind spinning tops and decided that in order to fully realize my idea I had to take it one step further. This new top is smaller so it's much lighter and easier to spin. It features a streamlined design with more playability than before. I wanted to make it as easy and fun as possible for everyone to enjoy!

Print

Thailand Toy Expo kicks off its third annual show on April 30th and runs through May 3rd 2015 at the CentralWorld mega mall (6th largest in the world) in Bangkok. We’re excited to be making the trip out to check out the show and the other two comic cons happening at the same time (more on that in a sec).   The lineup is a strong mix of Western and Asian artists/brands including 3A / Ashley Wood, Amanda Visell, BenzillaCoarse, Fools Paradise, FunkoInstinctoyMighty Jaxx, Pobber, Ron EnglishSML, ZCWO and many more.  Browsing through the official FB page, it looks like there will be a heavy focus on indie 1/6 figures as well as a strong showcase of Thai artists.

Plus… Thailand Toy Expo is one of three pop culture conventions going on in Bangkok at the same time (4.30 –5.3) !  In addition to Toy Expo, there’s also  Thailand Comic Con (Siam Paragon) and Bangkok Comic Con (Bitec Bangna)  This sensory overload is officially called Bangkok Entertainment Week which is a brand new concept for 2015.

Ron English x Blackbook Toy – Evil MC (4.26)

IMG_8892

Blackbook Toy is about to release Evil MC, a new take on Ronald McDonald from none other than Ron English. A bigger, badder, and yes more evil follow-up to the classic MC Supersize, Evil MC strikes a menacing pose with a stack of burgers in one hand and a removable  AK-Spork resin rifle in the other. Sculpted by Chop of Monster Farm—whose credits include the  S”K”um-Kun toy—the new sofubi figure towers over his shorter, squat predecessor at an impressive 15.7” tall (burger to toe). At first glance these look unpainted, but if you look closely each has a touch of paint to mimic creepy eyeliner.

Evil MC debuts in not one, but two editions—Pure Evil in white and Hella Evil in black—at Super Festival Vol.68 (4.26). . It will also be available online from Blackbook Toy  on Sunday (4.26) @ 8 AM PDT for 16,200 yen (~ $136). Each edition comes with a swanky black fabric bag with an Evil MC graphic.

Revolution Brewing x Shawnimals – Galaxy Hero Plush at C2E2 (4.24 – 4.26)

GalaxyHeroPlush-lifestyle-shot

For this weekend’s C2E2 convention, Shawnimals worked with Revolution Brewing on an all-Chicago collaboration to create a plush based on their Galaxy Hero India Pale Ale, created specifically for the annual nerd gathering as the official C2E2 brew. Wait…official beer…of a comic-con? Mind blown, confused, and I suppose pleased. Ok yes, it’s been around for three years, but I’m a toy blogger not a beer blogger… (err, nevermind…). Come to think of it, I first met Shawn at a Kidrobot Toy Fair Party in a bar…

At any rate, Shawn started with the action hero style alien on the beer label and transformed it into something just a bit softer and yes, cuter. Limited to 500 pieces, the happy go lucky Galaxy Hero Plush will be available at the Shawnimals/Revolution Brewing booth [#668] for $20. If you can’t make it out to Chicago for the show, they will soon be available from RevBrew’s online shop.

Stardust the Super Wizard by Eagle Eye Prime

Stardust front

What’s old is new again. At first glance you might think that Stardust the Super Wizard (8”) is a vintage figure. In fact, this  first toy from  Shane Wood’s Eagle Eye Prime brand is a new piece based on the Golden Age super hero created by artist Fletcher Hanks. It’s sculpted in Hanks’ visual style and and includes a 4-page mini-comic by Benjamin Marra.  Yet more proof that sofubi is becoming the go-to for low-run vinyl toys, Stardust was produced in Japan using the tried and true slush casting technique.  The red boot edition is available now for $45 (+s/h) via Eagle Eye Prime’s webshop.

Ron English x ToyQube – Boxing Brain(4.24)

Rn English Boxing Brain3

ToyQube is about to release  Ron English’s Boxing Brain sculpture—shown above in front of Ron’s new Houston and Bowery mural in NYC.  The latest addition to TQ’s Signature Series, was shown as an unpainted prototype at last year’s DesignerCon. A play on the ironic shape similarity and jab at the myth of everlasting vigor, the Boxing Brain is a cleverly cautionary piece about the sport and perhaps more generally a comment on the art of conflict resolution. Limited to 300 pieces, the resin sculpture will be released on Friday (4.24) for $179.95 (+s/h) exclusively from ToyQube’s online store.

Seriously x Kidrobot – Best Fiends Vinyl

BFxKR_Press_Release_Male_Slug

Kidrobot has teamed up with mobile games brand Seriously on a line of new vinyl and plush toys based on their extremely popular Best Fiends game.  The line will launch at SDCC with a limited GID edition of the vinyl Slug figure –- the game’s baddies.  Rather than just the toys following the game, Seriously will simultaneously launch the Valley of the Slugs update which will bring the GID slugs into the game.

If you haven’t played Best Fiends (me, until about 10 minutes ago…), it’s a well polished “match” puzzler with some light RPG elements than enable you to level up your group of characters(“Fiends”).  It’s available on Android /Amazon Fire/iOS platforms.

We’re curious to learn more about the new line including product details such as the Slug’s size and whether these will be standalone releases only or if a mini-fig series might be in the works as well.
