Tokyo Jesus x Clutter Studios —Oni-Tayū (太夫) Smoke and Mirrors Edition (9.13)


Every once in awhile, a figure catches us completely off guard. While named as a follow-up edition to the Crystal Blood Tayū  released back in April, the new Oni-Tayū (太夫) Smoke and Mirrors Edition (12")from Tokyo Jesus and Clutter is, in reality, a completely different figure and tour de force.

While the Oiran's overall shape remains the same, Tokyo Jesus has sculpted a breathtaking skeleton or perhaps more accurately, a network of interconnected skulls and bones.  Double cast in an outer layer of translucent smoke resin and GID resin for the inner skeleton, the new figure conveys Tokyo Jesus's aesthetic in a clear, powerful, and perhaps unmatched manner.

Limited to 50 pieces, the Oni-Tayū (太夫) Smoke and Mirrors Edition will be available for pre-order on Friday (9.13) at 11 AM PDT from Clutter for $350. Handcrafted by Clutter Studios in New York, these standout figures will begin to ship on November 30th, 2019.

Touma — Hitch Bear Set to Debut at TTF and DesignerCon


Japanese artist Touma will debut his new Hitch Bear toy (3.5") at Taipei Toy Festival (10.10 - 10.13) and DesignerCon (11.22 - 11.24). The new toy debuts in one of the artist's signature color combos: deep blue with red + white accents. Following in his father's footsteps, Hitch always encourages the other animals in his village with a positive, 'thumbs up'. The good vibes result in the animals letting the friendly bear tag along for a ride, hence the name. Articulated at the hip, Hitch can both stand and sit/ride.
