Celebrate the Day After Valentine's with Black Ahwroo by Gary Baseman and 3DRetro (2.15)

AR_black2Valentine's Day is right around the corner as seen by the wave of light pastel pink toys set to drop shortly.  Turing the holiday on its head, Gary Baseman is eschewing "light and pretty" for "dark and vicious" with the new 3DRetro Exclusive Black Ahwroo vinyl.  Though it's definitely not pink, it does have plenty of bright, crimson red to go around.

Pick up the 3DRetro Exclusive Black Ahwroo from 3DRetro.com and their Glendale location on Friday, February 15th.

'Chelone' 24-hr Timed Edition by James Jean (2.12)

JJ-CHELONE-PR_BEAUTY_1024x1024@2x

James Jean will release a deluxe Chelone giclee print as a timed edition available for 24 hours starting on Tuesday (2.2) at 8 AM PST for $220 each from his web store. The painting is Jean's interpretation of the eponymous nymph from Greek mythology who was forced to carry around her home as punishment for spurning an invitation to Zeus's wedding. 

Transformed into a tortoise, Chelone is seen bathing herself as water surges past and around. The 20.5 x 18.5"  signed and numbered print features raised texture on the nymph's hair, shell, and the hitchhiking Octopus. For an added touch of dimensionality and flair, details of the water and shell are silkscreened  with diamond dust. Finally, the print is finished with an embossed hermit crab, centered at the bottom.

Unruly Industries Teases the 'Fish Face' Art Toy by Ian MacDonald

51762380_421150235302734_3550176803547577106_n

Another day, another intriguing teaser from Unruly Industries. This time around we're treated to a partial reveal of Fish Face by Canadian artist/designer Ian MacDonald who also happens to be Associate Art Director at Uruly's parent company, Sideshow Collectibles.

While many of the initial Unruly toys are interpretations of popular entertainment properties, Fish Face Appears to be an original design.  We like what we see so far, especially the fins and the sculpted-in details.  For now the question is, legs or big tail of some sort?

Jose Pulido x Unruly Industries — A Fresh Take on Harley Quinn

3ACFC01E-9792-4E68-AFE0-112F5AA9FC0C

Unruly Industries—the brand-new art toy brand from Sideshow Collectibles—has begun to reveal upcoming toy line with a few juicy teasers.  In the latest sneak, Jose Pulido brings his contemporary sugar-skull style to DC's wicked Harley Quinn.  From what's been revealed so far, the design features a streamlined sugar skull treatment incorporating her jester's hat. With eyes closed, the sexy wild child seems to be caught in a calmer moment, perhaps before things get crazed. We're looking forward to seeing more from Pulido and the rest of the Unruly Industries' lineup.

Love at First Sight? Twinkle Star Mythril Horn of Ocean from Freakroom

A4EDA590-C663-4CF4-9488-E71AA232A861

Next up for Freakroom is the Twinkle Star Mythril Horn of Ocean soft vinyl.  The Valentine's Day-themed piece casts the rather peculiar fish in a whole new light.  The three-eyed denizen of the deep is ready for love with a humorous  new pink + glitter design. While the figure may seem to be of an imaginary beast, it is in fact based on the bizarre appearance of the very real Anglerfish. 

This lovely edition follows the sold-out Crystal Frog edition which dropped last month. Be sure to follow the artist for a Twinkle Star lottery announcement shortly.

64107A84-F6FF-41CA-8100-AA3BEDFC3A49

As WonderFestival Winter 2019 opens today in Japan (2.10), one of the biggest draws is likely to be the lottery for the band-new Labubu Pilot, a collaboration between Maschinen Krieger creator Kow Yokoyama,  Kasing Lung, and How2Work. Yokoyama designed Labubu's outfit based on the classic SAFS mecha pilot uniform.  Limited to just 20 pieces, the new polystone figure brings a new level of sculpted and painted detail to the artist's extremely popular signature character.

These will be available via lottery at 10 AM at booth 4-28-01.   For those not at WF, the bad news is this is a guaranteed sell-out. The plus side?  Hope for future editions.

myplasticheart Lottery Release : Lucky Zimomo and Burning Zimomo from Kasing Lung

IMG_2117.JPG

Collecting Kasing Lung's very popular figures from outside of Asia can be  quite difficult unless you make trips to the larger conventions and release events in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand and more.  So, we're happy to report that myplasticheart is offering both Lucky Zimomo and Burning Zimomo via lottery. 

The Lucky Zimomo is based on the traditional lucky cat white,red and yellow design. From traditional to special FX, the Burning Zimomo features translucent amber vinyl with dark spray and tinsel inside to simulate the little guy being on fire.

Both of the Kasing Lung soft vinyl figures are available via Lottery -- $129.99 for Lucky Zimomo and $139.99 for Burning Zimomo.  Each requires a separate entry but shares much of the entry process.  Drop an email to [email protected]  with the subject of either 'Burning Zimomo Lottery' or 'Lucky Zimomo Lottery' (depending on what you'd like to buy) and be sure to include your full name, shipping address and your myplasticheart account email [if you have one]. The lottery closes on Friday, February 8th at 2 PM PST. Winners will be notified to arrange payment on Saturday (2.9).   If you'd like to enter both lotteries, you'll need to send a separate email for each with the appropriate subject lines. Good luck!
