Mighty Jaxx x Brandalised — 'Kissing Coppers' Polystone


Mighty Jaxx is currently offering a 24-hour timed pre-release of their new Kissing Coppers polystone figure inspired by the mural from legendary street artist/prankster Banksy. Licensed through the Brandalised brand from Full Colour Black Ltd, the figure features black and white paint effects designed to recreate the look of Banksy's stenciled walls.  The 10" polystone figure is available now for pre-order until Sunday (7.7)  5:59 AM PDT direct from Mighty Jaxx for $350 each.

With Banksy art toys, the question of authenticity  is ever present and seemingly vague.  Medicom has released several high-profile art toys featuring Banksy's iconic images through their Sync brand via the Brandalism trademark which is owned by Full Colour Black, the same firm that provided the license for Mighty Jaxx's new Kissing Coppers toy.  For us the best evidence that Full Colour Black has Banksy's OK, is the apparent lack of any public complaint from Banksy.  Not proof per se, but suggestive evidence of an official connection, be it license or tacit approval. With Banksy merch (other than prints), that seems to be as 'official' as it gets.

Super7 x Peanuts — 'Good Grief' SDCC Pop-Up (7.19 - 7.21)


Super7 will showcase their extensive new Peanuts collection at their Good Grief pop-up at their San Diego store during SDCC weekend (7.19 - 7.21).  The new toys, apparel and lifestyle items are based on the original cartoon designs from the 50's and 60's rather than their more modern iterations. 

The Good Grief Gift Shop will feature a pair of SDCC exclusive figures. First up is the Good Ol' Charlie Brown (3.75") ReAction figure ($20) with a design inspired by the first Peanuts comic strip (10.2.50), featured on the blister card packaging. For many, Peanuts is ultimately a story of a boy and his dog. S7 pays homage to both of the stars of the classic comic strip with the  16" Snoopy Deluxe vinyl, complete with Charlie Brown mask and cloth shirt ($195).  

Super7 will also debut a full Peanuts ReAction line featuring Cowboy Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Sally and Schroeder ($15 each) as well as the Peanuts Baseball Keshi Surprise blind-box minis (1.75", $4 each) which include foil stickers.

There's plenty more in store for you at the Good Grief pop-up including SDCC exclusive pennants, cups, tote bag, sticker set, and jigsaw puzzle. Plus, S7 will soon unveil their Peanuts apparel too.  For all the info, check out Super7's detailed introduction to the new Peanuts collection.
