Eric Noah x Kurobokan -- Gwen the Corgi OG and Pink Soda at TTE


The waiting is almost over.  Kurobokan  will release the OG Gwen the Corgi vinyl when the doors open at the Thailand Toy Expo on Thursday AM (5.3) in booth F3.


In addition to the OG, they will also release the TTE Exclusive Pink Soda edition with a fun swirl design blending pink, orange, and perhaps white.  These will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.  

Plus, purchasers of the OG and Pink Soda will receive lottery entries for a chance to buy one of the hand-done Gwen the Corgi artist series resins. Each artist series is an edition of 5. So far designs from three artists have been revealed (shown below, l to r):  Semproel, Mrkumkum, Iky.  All of the Corgis will be available at TTE from booth F3.
