BlackBook Toy x Mishka x Lamour Supreme — Debut Blue Kong + Warhead (2.6)


BlackBook Toy is set to unleash the newest evolution of their long running collaboration with Mishka and Lamour Supreme: Kong.  Kong features a brand-new raging gorilla head attached to The Beast body. Designed by Lamour Supreme and sculpted by Kenth Toy Works, the Kong head sculpt features a forked tongue and Keep Watch-style emerging eye on the back.

BBT will debut Kong in an unpainted light blue edition at WonderFestival Winter (2.10) in Japan (N-Plan Booth: 7-21-04). In a bit of a reverse order drop, they are offering Kong to overseas collectors before the WF debut in Japan. And… they are throwing in a free, bonus Hologram Warhead.  Quite the deal since the OG painted Warhead sold for $49 each.

To celebrate the age of Kong, BBT is releasing the Blue Kong with free Hologram Warhead (clear blue) for ¥17,000 (~$155) via email lottery for collectors outside of Japan  starting on Wednesday (2.6) at 7 AM and ending on Friday (2.8) at 6:59 AM.

To enter drop a line to [email protected] with the tile of "BL Kong Lottery entry' and be sure to include your name, full shipping address, telephone number and  also mention you want the Blue Kong + Warhead.  Full lottery info is available from BBT.

Finally, wondering about the Mini Kong and Mini Beast finger puppets (pic after the jump)? These will be available at WonderFest and are larger than the typical finger puppet toys (3.5", ¥1300/~$12).
