Trapped In A Can. Condensed by Doodles ‘N Drips x Mighty Jaxx (12.8)


Andy Warhol and the Campbell’s soup can are forever linked. Doodles ‘N Drips’ Consdensed pokes lighthearted fun at the artist’s signature imagery with visual and verbal reference to fading glory—drooped hands in boxing gloves and a pervasive gray from his hair to his lips.  Produced by Mighty Jaxx, the new figure has a striking, heavily-shaded appearance, lending it the appearance of a slightly muted photograph.  Condensed drops this Saturday (12.8).

Pocket Plastic’s Rocky is A Master of Balance

Kevin Nam has released a brand-new resin toy—Rocky— through his Pocket Plastic brand.  While seemingly a departure from his popular Tumble Tops, Rocky’s design focus on rock-solid balance links the new figure to the artist’s prior toys.  Rocky—a boxing gorilla—is in fact, a master of balance, equally adept at standing on each of four his limbs.

Cast in marbled resin, the 3” faceted fighter features real Cubic Zirconia gemstone eyes, fitting for a character born of rock. Limited to 40 pieces, the debut edition features 35 standard ‘stone’ figures as well as 5 vibrant Ruby chase pieces.  Rocky is available now for $30 from Pocket Plastic. Hit the jump for a making-of video as well as a gallery of Rocky's balance-defying feats.

Marc McKee x BlackBook Toy — Rocco 3 Devil Bear


After three years of development, BlackBook Toy is now taking pre-orders for the Rocco 3 Devil Bear sofubi toy by Marc McKee.  The toy is based on McKee’s design of Steve Rocco’s board for World Industries (1989) which was issued a cease and desist because of the Devil Bear’s resemblance to a certain honey-loving bear from Hundred Acre Wood.  

The Devil Bear figure stands 9.85” tall and includes a purple pitchfork which is individually cast in resin by the toy’s sculptor, Chop of Monster Farm. With some minor color and text differences, the figure matches the graphic on the underside of the board.  The Rocco 3 Devil Bear is available now for ¥17820 (~$157) directly from BBT as  special pre-order which includes a free screen print (8.5” x 11 ) of the graphic from the top, grip-tape side of the vintage skate deck.  The figure + print are slated to ship in February of 2019.
