Stranger Factory x Otto Bjornik – Exclusive Bai Chu Li-Fu (5.20)


Update: Corrected price.

Stranger Factory will release their exclusive Li-Fu Bai Chu resins (5.5”) from Otto Bjornik on Friday (5.20) @ 12 PM PDT for $125 (+s/h) from their webshop.  Limited to 35 pieces, Li-Fu features a 1:7 gold chase (necklace + hat ornament).  Overall the green + black design is quite sharp and fits nicely into the walking zombie myth.

Li-Fu : Nature

Green Li-Fu contains the mighty power of nature. Forged in the forest and tempered in verdant environments, the Li-Fu edition communes with nature spirits to hone in on Bai-Chu’s targets every single time (however, being green, he is a bit gullible).

The miniscule vampire stands approximately 5 ½” tall (you may need to stoop down quite low to hear him shouting “Biteyoubiteyoubiteyou!”as he is very very small). He is cursed with a rigid resin body emulating the smooth vampiric skin of his kind, and a neodymium magnet that pulls him towards your refrigerator (an indignity Bai Chu will probably never forgive you for).

His magnetic restraining talisman with the words “I Hunger” written in beautiful Chinese calligraphy is removable, and you may need to reattach it should Bai Chu prove too much to handle!

Fools Paradise – Pre-Order Darkside K.X1 at Coin Rides Game #3


Fools Paradise is now taking pre-orders for the third release in its ongoing Star Wars-themed Coin Rides Game series.   So far we’ve seen a Sand Trooper (Sand K.Troop #1) atop a Dewback and  Boba Fett (Boba K.Slave #2) taking flight on Slave I.  This time around with Darkside K.X1Darkside K.X1, Darth Keiko has got herself a Tie Fighter to ride, if only someone will give her a coin or two to make it go. 

As with the other two, the sculpting and paint look top-notch. The ship design is at once recognizable and detailed yet altered just enough to have a looser, ‘fun’, kiddie ride vibe.  The two ride support columns feature ball-joints for side-to-side action/posability.

Limited to a maximum of 500 pieces, Darkside K.X1 (~ 12” assembled) is available for preorder now through May 26th, 2016 from Fools Paradise for $299 (includes global shipping). The toys will ship in Q3.

Sickboy x Life and Death USA Edition (5.19)

Sickboy_Coffin_Line Dot_2016_6

Chicago-based Line Dot will release a new hand-embellished USA edition of UK street artist Sickboy’s Life and Death resin sculpture (3 x 7 x 10.5”, edition of 10, $850)  on Thursday (5.19) at their gallery and then will offer remaining stock on Friday morning from their web shop.  The new four-color Blue + Purple edition features a coffin character—a frequent symbol in his work challenging death—and follows the original Orange + Red UK edition.  The striking and humorous sculpt builds on the strength of the character with intricate relief details—a stream of text, symbols, and more—on the sides of the coffin.  This symbolic texture seems to comment, in part, on life lived to its fullest as seen with the “#1” seal imagery.  Sick Boy has hand-painted a fractured abstract scene on the rear of the coffin—a nice touch right in line with his street art background.

BAIT x GI Joe x 1000 Toys – 1/6 Snake Eyes


BAIT has joined forces with the 1/6 specialists 1000Toys on a new officially-licensed Snake Eyes figure.  Shown at this past weekend’s Thailand Toy Exo, the new figure features a synthetic  take on the deadly assassin courtesy of the TOA Heavy Industries imprint. From the official description, it sounds like Storm Shadow might be lurking in the distance as well. Look for the BAIT x 1000Toys Snake Eyes to debut this Summer.

A project to resurrect an old-generation soldier using his DNA info has been requested to TOA Heavy Industries from the Arashikage Clan. After a successful DNA restoration close to 80%, the soldier was then resurrected using the Synthetic Human body with the restored DNA info. Even though the memory restoration was incomplete, the soldier became to successfully accomplish numerous covert missions on his own.

In the midst of a rescue mission for captured engineers, the soldier is ambushed by a mysterious white shadow…
