Devil Toys at STS – New Releases from QUICCS and BSTER


Devil Toys has several releases lined up for Shanghai Toy Show including two from QUICCS and a collabo project with Benson Wong’s BSTER Studio.  From QUICCS, comes TEQ Nano– a chibi style rendition of the artist’s signature character, available in both white + black editions.  STS Exclusive Shark & Remi  from QUICCS and chk_dsk. ? Yes, please.  Revenge of the Toxic Kids features a translucent polluted rainbow  design.

Finally, Devil Toys has teamed up with Benson Wong to produce his Lazy figure in vinyl.  The original versions of his urban sloth were done in resin and now he makes the jump to vinyl which would mean he’ll be much easier to collect.

Joe Lo x ZombiesX – Zombie Neko at Shanghai Toy Show


Joe Lo and ZombiesX will release the new 進化の猫 soft vinyl figure at Shanghai Toy Show.  We’re not really sure on the translation here, perhaps Evolved Cat, though visually it resembles a zombie cat which fits nicely with the ZombiesX association—which may in fact be the name of a series/line. While Lucky Cats (and their evil counterparts) aren’t new, the hissing expression is cool as are the individual whiskers, something we don’t see often.   This one will be available at booth [E19],

Gas Viper Studios at STS: Deep Sea Tiger Shark

Gas Viper Studios [booth B20] will debut its new Deep Sea Tiger Shark (ORCAS) figure at Shanghai Toy Show.  Unlike his previous Beetle and Chicken figures,  this underwater diver mech features a highly technical, detailed design. It’s unclear if the pilot is removable.   Remarkably these look like production figures down to the packagaing, no wonder they took 247 days to complete.  This one will be limited to 30 pieces and retail for 588 RMB(~ $94).

ToyQube for Shanghai Toy Show


ToyQube is on the way to China for the first-ever Shanghai Toy Show. They have an absolutely loaded release schedule for their booth [C5-C6]—seven so far with the possibility of at least one more.  Let’s dive right in.  On the brand-new front, there’s the sweet double-take Banalien from Paul Jackson in limited, advance release quantities.  STS will also serve as the debut of Camilla D’Errico’s Rainbow Roll.


TQ will also release new editions of five of its recent figures. First up is a metallic gold Popeye Grin from Ron English.  Steven Harrington’s Gotcha returns in a neon green follow-up to the sold-out OG edition.  Going for the trifecta, ToyQube will release The Scarecrow by Jim McKenzie in its third editions, a  sensational two-tone pink, call it ‘cherry’, colorway.
