80s Workout Action Figures by Better Day Toys


Spanish sculptor/toy artist Julio Sanchez Roldan of Better Days Toys has just released his ambitious 80s Workout action figures featuring ten different designs. The toys take us back to the decade that many of us look back and smile at with head-shaking, ‘that was us’ bemusement, a moment in time where leg warmers, parachute pants, and fanny packs were very much in vogue.  

80s Workout reminds us not only of the rigors and joys of the self-empowering fitness movement, but also of the music and the outfits that went hand and hand with it. Each of the hand-crafted 4.9” resin figures features oh-so-80’s outfits and includes a random color of boombox. With five-points of articulation, detailed paint designs and glorious full-color backing cards featuring vintage workout photos, Better Day Toys has put in a grueling workout of his own to bring these ladies to life.  The 80s Workout figures are available for pre-order for $75 each from the Better Days Toys shop and will ship roughly 3 weeks after ordering.

Fools Paradise x TMALL — Super Professional 2 Director’s Cut (12.11)


Fools Paradise and China’s ecommerce site Tmall have joined forces once again for another alternate Super Professional edition.  Last time it was a GID edition of the original Super Professional set  and now we have the Director’s Cut edition of Super Professional 2.

The story line here seams to be that the Super Professional and his protégé have finally triumphed over the piranha plant — who has gone from a vibrant red to a weakened  brown shade with his pipe switched from fresh green to defeated read. There are some other color changes, with the professional going all black, his assistant going brunette, and the bullet seeing red, literally.

Super Professional Director’s Cut will be available for pre-order on December 10th at 8 AM PST directly from Fools Paradise. For Chinese collectors, the set will be available at Tmall on 12.12.

Kidrobot x Jermaine Rogers — ‘Ultraviolet Choices’ Gone in A Flash


Now that was quickKidrobot surprised collectors with an essentially unannounced drop for their exclusive Ultraviolet Choices (ed of 100) by Jermaine Rogers this morning with just a 30-minute heads. And just as quickly as the release appeared, it disappeared as collectors raced to pick up the latest drop from Jermaine’s Choices Series 2 —we believe this is the 2nd S2 drop, the first being the FYE  Storm Exclusive.  

It sounds like KR might be planning more surprise drops soon.  Since KR usual release window is is 9 AM PST, it might be a good idea to check their IG through the 8AM hour. That is, if you have to have all the hotness.
