Six TwentyEight – Sunrise MITT for Toy Soul (12.15)


unnamed (2)

With the darkness of winter on the horizon, Six TwentyEight is bringing you some much needed cheery brightness with the next MITT edition.  Sunrise features the irrepressible bumper car bulldog in a radiant orange edition with red and blue accents. Maybe it’s just us, but MITT himself seems to have a bit of orange glow as well.  MITT Sunrise debuts at Toy Soul over the weekend in HK (12.15 – 12.17) from the Wrong Gallery booth [F-14].  Look for an online drop sometime in January.

25009638_1801265323506211_2648629477298405376_n

The new Mono Edition of Jim McKenzie's The Scarecrow figure is probably our favorite colorway yet! ToyQube has really knocked it out of the park with the scarecrow editions. Our favorite detail with this release is the natural colored rope used to bind this monotone character to its post. The release for this limited edition run will take place on Monday, December 18th at 10AM PST and should retail in the ball park of $175.

Kathie Olivas x Kidrobot – Dark Harbor: Lucy Curious and Neptune

unnamed (1)

Kathie Olivas’ Lucy Curious and Neptune (7”) from Kidrobot continues the story from the recently released Dark Harbor mini series—co created with husband Brandt Peters.  Echoing the strong sculpts of the minis, the larger sized figure is a looker from Kathie’s signature-style girl to the animal/machine sea horse.  Love Neptune’s gear joints.

Lucy Curious is available in two editions for $80 each.  There’s the standard edition (brown Lucy + red Neptune) available from your favorite local retailer including myplasticheart and woot bear.  The KR-exclusive white edition is available at… yep, Kidrobot.com. They also have the standard edition.

Bunnywith is back! That’s right, Alex Pardee’s classic, armless Bunny is back.  You’ve enjoyed him in plush and molded pvc, and how comes a brand new vinyl version (8”) from Mighty Jaxx.  So that’s all good, any downsides?  Only one, Bunnywith will only be available for 24 hours beginning on Saturday (12.9) at 4 AM PST for $109 (includes shipping) from Mighty Jaxx’s online store.  He looks good by himself, but even better ‘with’ something else – after all the Bunny is universal.

Six TwentyEight – Invisible and Clear MITTs for Fuckaiju (12.10)

unnamed

Six TwentyEight has clear on its mind with two new MITT editions slated for Fuckaiju—Finest United Convention for Kaiju— on December 10th at The Hub in Hong Kong.  The Invisible MITT starts with a clear MITT and features minimal color sprays to his bumper car and clothes to give the illusion that the Bull Dog is well… invisible.  The MITT Clear is as it sounds, an unpainted, clear MITT and Bumper Car. 

Can’t make it out to the event?  Invisible MITT will also drop online on Monday (12.18) at 4 AM PST, while the MITT Clear will make it online at a later date.

Amanda Visell – The Imperials

QUEzNkY1NzBCQzFDOEZGQjk1MDE6OWZlODU0ZWRiOTQ0NThiNWU2MjQ3ZTIzZWMzODMxNTg6Ojo6OjA=

Amanda Visell released The Imperials, a blind-box style series featuring seven hand-crafted Star Wars baddies done in wood, back on Black Friday.  She’s mentioned that these will only be available for a short while longer, so if you haven’t seen these or have been on the fence, now is the time.  The sinister seven each stand 7” tall and include: Imperial Officer, Storm Trooper, Royal Guard, Death Star Gunner, Tie Fighter Pilot, Scout Trooper, and Snowtrooper.  They are available directly from Switcheroo for $175 each (+ s/h). Since these are sold blind, you won’t be able to choose the character but if you order multiples you won’t get any dupes.

Ziqi x Unbox – Mixed Parts Ice Cream Dino ?!?!

24175611_1185363054928843_6638585053683122176_n

Oooh… It looks like Ziqi and Unbox have another batch of treats on the way with this teaser of Mixed Parts Ice Cream Dino vinyls.   No release info yet, but we’re assuming (well, more like hoping) that since these made the Unbox IG, that there will be an online drop.  It would also be awesome to see some of the painted editions (below) as well which were released at several Asian conventions including most recently at Tokyo Comic Con (12.1 – 12.3).  Keep hope alive.

Taku Obata x Unbox Industries – SOFB Boy (12.2)

24127158_113592202759016_1547544916534493184_n

The day has come… Unbox will release SOFB Boy by Japanese sculptural artist Taku Obata on Saturday (12.2) at 7 AM PDT from their webshop for $85 (+ s/h). Highly anticipated, these should go quickly.  If you miss this first opportunity, Unbox has your back with another online drop planned. 

First shown exactly a year ago in proto form, the figure translates one of Obata’s towering wood B Boy sculptures into soft vinyl via a digital scan.  Besides the affordability and more practical form factor, the dynamic soft vinyl figure offers new possibilities with impressive articulation (9 points: elbows, wrists, legs, arms, and head ???) transcending the static presentation of Obata’s other mediums including bronze and wood.  SOFB Boy’s flexibility to Tut however you see fit, is a perfect match for the frenetic hip hop dance form.

There’s big Arcane Divination news.  Kidrobot has just released the 20” Clairvoyant Dunny by J*Ryu.  Available in both a standard Antique Black edition (200 pcs) and a KR-exclusive Pearlescent White, the new release  lets the detail from the previous 8” size shine in the larger format—each curve and nuance all the more impressive. As you might expect, these also come with a rather large crystal ball companion dunny.  Both are available direct from Kidrobot.com for $500 (+ s/h) and the Black should be available at select retailers.

Otto Björnik - Artemis - Custom Munny

Artemis2

One very lucky collector of Otto Björnik's has just commissioned this amazing piece that we just had to share with everyone! With this piece, Otto has used a 20" Munny to help house a smaller 5" Munny within its stomach. Dubbed "Artemis", this piece also features hand-sculpted details to capture the essence of Otto's earlier customs that featured 2D painted tummies. We love that Otto went big to bring this to life! If you like what you see here, Otto has some custom Teddy Troops available through Happy Panda Toys HERE.

With the resurgence of KAWS figures over the last year, it is safe to say that KAWS x MEDICOM is definitely not dead. Recently shared on KAWS' instagram is what looks to be a new figure based on the "Small Lie" sculpture from his installation last year in the UK. Seeing the hashtag #medicomtoy leads us to believe there will be a toy release in the near future. We will be sure to keep our eyes out for more info.

Johnny Draco x Kidrobot – Mr. Watt Anatomical Dunny

unnamed
Friday saw the release of the Mr. Watt Anatomical Dunny (5”) from Johnny Draco and Kidrobot.  The darkly whimsical Mr. Watt makes clever use of the Jason Freeny-designed Anatomical Dunny sculpt with a story split across the two halves.  Blissfully unaware Mr. Watt on the left, and struck-by-lighting victim on the right or perhaps the outer and inner personas of the character.  This first use of the Anatomical sculpt as a sub-platform in its own right looks great and has us excited for the potential of additional artist takes. 

The 5” Mr. Watt Anatomical Dunny ($39.99) is available in both a standard blue edition (1000 pcs.)  available at various retailers like 3DRetro as well as a KR-Exclusive Mono Edition (200 pcs.)  available only at Kidrobot.com
