JPX x Thailand Toy Expo -- Nong Toy Online Release (5.12)


JPX unveiled and released their Nong Toy vinyl of the Thailand Toy Expo mascot at this year’s show and is now about to release the remaining stock on Saturday (5.12) . The stylishly spunky figure is subtly sophisticated.  Viewed from the front, Nong is a cute little boy who’s turned to nature for playthings.  The large wind-up style key in his back unfolds another dimension and layer to the character.  Nong Toy goes beyond most similarly sized vinyl toys with three sets of removable hands—all the better to get the pose just right to fit the mood of the moment.

For international customers, JPX will release the final fifty Nong Toy figures via a special online form on Saturday (5.12) at 7 AM PDT for 2400 baht (~ $76) + shipping fees.  Be sure to visit the JPX facebook page at the time of the release to load the form and purchase.

MAD x Filter017 – ‘Hunny Badger’ Custom Mix Badger


With their Mixing your Badger project, Filter017 is inviting select artists to customize their Mix Badger vinyl (Unbox).  For his take on the Taiwanese brand’s mascot, MAD transformed the badger into everyone’s favorite Hunny-loving bear. He of course went urban with  Pooh’s gear – a camouflage jacket, Converse Chucks, and in a fun tip of the hat, kaNO’s Make Vinyl Urban Again design caps things off.  The stylized design diagram illustration with the color call outs makes us wonder if there might be more to this story. Maybe it’s just a really cool way of presenting the custom…
