myplasticheart at 5 Points: Seedlas (5”) by Shoko Nakazawa


myplasticheart has just announced its final Five Points Festival Release and it’s sure to draw a line to their booth [#336].  They will be releasing the new 5” version of Shoko Nakazwa’s very popular Seedlas figure in both black and white editions. If Seedlas looks very familiar, the smaller Seedlas is featured in the Kaiju Hunting mini series from Paradise.

Chris Ryniak Brings New Cuteness for Five Points


It appears that Chris Ryniak has been slaving away on an army of new resin critters for Five Points Festival (6.2 – 6.3).  First up, he’s got three new medium-sized resins, each quite the personality. There’s Howden a cute orange Gourd, Dashi the Kitty (also available as a mini) and Succulent Dewlap. The debut Dashi edition is limited to 10 pieces. Both Howden and Dewlap will be available online in early June. More? Sure thing, Chris also has a fresh harvest of mini veggies to choose from.  Adopt the cuteness at his booth [#230].
