Sights from TTF – Banana Virus / Kuso Vinyl


Banana Virus sent us photos of his TTF booth (7.8 – 7.11) which he shared with Kuso Vinyl and by the looks of it, Instinct Toy as well.  Banana Virus featured several customs of his signature figures as well as his custom limited-edition Munnys with a wild, feral look complete with sculpted claws.  Kuso Vinyl’s portion of the booth featured both Nakanari’s Ninja Spiki Noruto and Rotobox’s new Farenheit OG.

Paradise Toyland will release the Cowboy Edition of their new Sea Horse & Rider figure by Amanda Visell in their TTF booth (A13) on Saturday, July 10th for NT2400 (~ $75).    This edition is apparently both a TTF and SDCC exclusive (checking on that).  We do not yet have  details on the blue/green edition (standard?) seen below (and in previous teases).

Sneak Peek: Amanda Visell – Seahorse Vinyl

What’s better than one Amanda Visell product reveal, how about two?  First we brought you  news of her ‘Okee Dokee’ metal action art toy  and now comes  a sneak peek at her new as yet publicly unnamed seahorse vinyl.  Seen here in proto form (minus a few bits), the figure will be released at this summer’s Taipei Toy Festival by Paradise Toyland.  The figure’s looking good – nice ‘scale’ textures and overall a fresh aesthetic – no easy feat in today’s crowded market.  To our knowledge, this is Paradise’s first original figure – nice to see them expanding their reach.

Taipei Toy Festival 2010 – Giveaways + Ticket Designs Revealed


Monster Taipei has just posted images of the four toys that will apaprently be given away to the first 500 paid  attendees  for this year’s Taipei Toy Festival through its four day run (7.8 – 7.11).  Looks like this year the giveaways include a toy and a food item.  The toys are a CiBoys mini (7.8), the new Baby Treeson on (7.9), Choco Barro (7.10), and Honeybaby x Touma figure(s) on the 11th.   This year’s artist ticket designs have been revealed. Check ‘em after the jump.  We’re curious about the Treeson on 7.9 as it appears to be the same one that had been listed as a TTF exclusive – bonus if it’s actually free to the first 500 collectors.
