Noah Eaton x Kidrobot X Corner 12 – Reaction Custom Dunnys

unnamed

Kidrobot will continue to showcase the work of talented customizers with new Reaction Series custom Dunnys from Noah Eaton and Corner 12. Dropping on Tuesday (4.25) at 9 AM PDT from Kidrobot.com, the series features color-changing Dunnys in three sizes (3”, 5” & 8”). 

Color changing? Yep, the series uses several different approaches to achieving the dynamic effect.  The 3” customs start red and then turn yellow as they are heated beyond 86 degrees, say with a hairdryer.  The 5” ‘chameleon’ customs apparently use color-shifting paint which looks like different colors at different angles and varying light.  Finally, the 8” customs are ‘mood’ Dunnys which when chilled change various hues as they warm back up or are touched.  Additionally, there are three chase 3” customs (2 of the mood variety) and two 5” mood chases.

So if you’re looking for Dunnys with a hidden trick to wow and impress, your search may very well be over.

Huck Gee – Gummi Blanks (4.22)

unnamed
Huck Gee has just announced the latest evolution of his Blank platform.  These are 7” tall, come in two flavors (err… colorways) and are delicious.  Ok, so they aren’t candy (darn) but they still look pretty tasty if you ask us. Shiny with what appears to be just a hint of translucency.   And, just because Huck is Huck, these look great in the dark too—yep, GID!

Limited to 50 signed/numbered pieces, the Gummi Blanks drop on Saturday (4.22) at 10 AM PDT for $125 (+ s/h) from Huck’s site. These tick all the boxes: eye-catching design, small batch, hand-crafted resin, made right here in the USA.  These are slated to ship in 3-4 weeks.

Martin Hsu – Dragon Boy Super Hits Wax

martin_hsu_dragon_boy_super05

After considerable development the sculpt for Martin Hsu’s Dragon Boy Super is done and finalized. In fact, the follow-up to his original Dragon Boy has hit an exciting milestone – wax proto!  In comparison to the original figure which had a slender, subtle appearance, Super brings a more action-oriented, humorous take.  The new Dragon Boy will come boxed with a mini Dragon Dog as seen in the 3D render above (Roberto Maki).

If you look closely, the figure’s base shape might look similar.  Recognize it?  In collaboration with Rotobox, Martin incorporated the Mini Cel platform into the design.  Now that the sculpt is done and the wax proto is done, we’re wondering when? Hopefully it won’t be too long before we hear about a release for Dragon Boy Super which is being produced by PowerCore and VTSS Toys.

Okedoki – Lover Boy Debuts at ToyCon UK 2017 (4.29 – 4.30)

LoverBoy-1
With oversized glasses, a rather large noggin and a form-fitting suit, Okedoki’s new 11” figure turns on the charm.  The cartoony sculpt definitely takes us back to the adorable, can’t be stopped Urkel and the simple fun of 90’s sitcom TV.  Sculpted and painted by Okedoki, this release continues her focus on charming, uplifting pieces while changing up the aesthetic a bit.

The very first figure from the Original Version (edition of 8) will be available at ToyCon UK 2017 (4.29 – 4.30) from the Collect and Display booth for £576 ($720).  The signed and numbered figures come in a stylish Canadian pine box with Plexiglass front and what appears to be shaped-foam to keep Mr. Heartbreaker safe and sound.  The rest of this first edition will be released later in the year.

Huck Gee x Mighty Jaxx – Gold Life: Golden Claw

Golden Claw is the newest addition to the Gold Life series from Huck Gee and Mighty Jaxx.  The ferocious tiger warrior and wielder of his eponymous weapons joins the previously released Raku (Day and Night editions) and the Soul Collector.  While Golden Claw has previously made appearances as a limited-edition custom back in ‘08 and a 3” Dunny, the new iteration appears to be the most detailed with additions to his gear as well as various refined elements. Compared to the Dunny, this one’s hat—featuring a well-down woven texture—includes the fancy flourish as seen on the OG customs.

The new 4” Golden Claw is available now for $30 (+ s/h) from Mighty Jaxx and is expected to ship in Q3 2017.
