Not one, but a deadly pair.  Jermaine Rogers has announced that he will be releasing a second Animal edition at DesignerCon.  Done in the classic army man green, the Toy Soldier edition joins the Shadow (black) edition.  The timely new resin incarnations of the Choices rabbit will be available at his booth [#1713].

Tim Biskup’s Toys 2 — Prancakes Exclusive + Vintage Toy Sale (11.15)

TimsToys-1

Last year’s Tim’s Toys went so well that Tim Biskup is once again selling off large parts of his vast toy collection which is priced to move. We dropped by over the weekend for a quick preview — hit the jump for more amazing photos.  The main event is this Thursday (11.15) at his Face Guts location in Glassel Park (LA)  with a preview from 12-3 PM and then sales from 3-9 PM.  He’ll also reopen the annual toy popup on Sunday (11.18) from 12 to 6 PM.While most are from other artists and brands, he will also have a selection of his own figures including one-off big Pollards and more.  

In addition to scores of sofubi toys (vintage and modern), Tim will be releasing two new figures done with Gravy Toys.  First up is Prancakes which comes with a swanky foam ‘hat’ and will be available in an unpainted pink edition as well as one-off painted pink and a few purple ones.  A little shorter and quite a bit more mysterious is the Face Guts mascot or simply the ‘icon’—a one piece, abstract head/face.

More?  Original artwork, laser-cut plastics and beer on ice. If you’re in town, definitely worth a visit. With many priced under $40 and some as low as $10, you never know what might call out to you.
