Ring in the Lunar New Year with the Pigtist OG Pre-Order


With the Year of the Pig lunar year coming in just a few days, we've seen quite a few Pig-themed art toys, both original designs and special editions of existing toys. The brand-new Pigtist from Thailand-based Pigtist Toy caught our eye with plenty of personality to spare. 

The sculpt is nicely done with cute proportions from the large, wide face, to the stylized, sitting body.  Embracing its inspiration, Pigtist delivers the goods with a wide nose, hoofed feat, and a tail.  Not content to rely on the cute appeal, the artist has added a bit of edge with the earring, and the tattoo-inspired graphics.

Pigtist (2.5", 10 pcs, resin) is currently available for $32 as a pre-order. To place an order, head over to the  pre-order page on Facebook and leave a comment with a '1' indicating that you'd like to order one toy. The artist will confirm successful orders and arrange for payment.  Orders will ship in roughly two months.

Steven Choi x Kaiyodo -- Zu & Pi Mini Series Debuts at WonderFestival (2.10)


Steven Choi is working with Japan's Kaiyodo to bring his Zu & Pi Universe to life as a new mini series.  The new series will be shown at the upcoming WonderFestival Winter (2.10) in Japan. This first sneak peek of what appears to be a celestial creature is quite promising with an excellent paint design. The new minis should be a nice compliment to the artist's larger Pi vinyl figures.
