Keep Going Amaz_"Rojo" Pre-Order


Korean artist Amaz is now taking pre-orders for his brand-new Keep Going Amaz_"Rojo" resin. Rojo flashes a slightly edgier urban design than his previous lighthearted kid pieces including Ice Cream Boy.  With his namesake red afro, baggy pants and oversized sneakers, the handmade Rojo feels very much in line with the highly addictive urban vinyl figures from the early 2000s. 

Limited to just 20 pieces, the 11" handmade resin figure is available for pre-order for $350 (+ $50 shipping) from the ATTS Studio web shop.  Rojo will ship about a month after orders are placed.

Nerdboy -- The Lumberjack Buck Pre-Order (1.10)


Korean artist Nerdboy is about to debut The Lumberjack Buck resin.  The new figure casts a duck as a chill US Forest Service employee with an axe slung over his shoulder and a cup of coffee in hand. The design and execution looks to be top-notch with a stylized look seemingly rooted in urban vinyl.  This is the follow-up of sorts to the artist's Working Duck series of figures.

Nerdboy will begin taking pre-orders for The Lumberjack Buck on Thursday (1.10) at 1 AM PST.  Look for more release details and full photos shortly.

Litor's Works -- Floating River Umasou Lottery


China-based Litor's Works has quickly caught collectors' attention with their line of oh-so-cute soft vinyl figures headlined by Umasou—a girl in a dino suit. Next up is the stunning Floating River edition. At first glance, the colorway appears to be a nice partially marbled edition (gray + white). What's not obvious is that this is a GID edition—dark blue + blue glow.  

Litor's Works is releasing Umasou Floating River (3 pieces) for $70 via IG lottery through Saturday (1.12) at 8 AM PST. To enter, repost the release post and be sure to mention @litorsworks and tage it #umasoulottery.
