First seen at Wonderfestival Winter 2016 last weekend, BLObPUS‘ latest painted runs are now available to purchase via open preorder! First up, we have the latest collaboration with Yamomark, the [BLObPUS Paint Ver.] “GID” Baku Kaiju Owada! Produced in BLObPUS’ signature glow-in-the-dark vinyl, the 6″ tall mammoth – complete with creepy portrait sculpt on the back – has been treated to a swathe of neon, metallic and silver sprays over a detail hugging black rub.

Next, we have a trifecta of painted runs featuring Awesome Toy‘s Loch Ness Monster. Standing at around 4″ tall, the 2-part figure has been layered with varied sprays ranging from BLObPUS’ traditional neon/metallics to a gorgeous soft pastel blue, purple and cream mix… Priced at just 5,000yen ($41) each, those interested in bagging any of the 4 figures can find details on how to preorder on the BLObPUS blog right here before close on February 23rd…

UnaffiliatedSJ‘s Kohai kaiju is set to make an unexpected comeback today in a special “Bruiser” colorway! Said to be inspired by Godzilla’s son “Manilla”, the beautifully sculpted figure plays side kick to the artist’s previously released Creature-X, featuring an altogether more stout (and short) frame at around 6.5″ tall and coming with 8 fully articulated parts that can be swapped out with future releases. Produced in what appears to be a red resin with black and silver sprays over a detail-hugging rub, the “Bruiser” Kohai will be touching down in the Unaffiliated store at some point later today for around $60 a piece (TBC). Keep a close eye on the Unaffiliated Instagram feed here for news on the drop as it happens!

Continuing their onslaught of both new and re-releases, the legendary Anraku Ansaku have teamed up with Medicom Toy for the release of a figure previously unseen in soft vinyl, the breathtaking Teruryu Doragorasu! Whilst we’ve had a few issues translating from our press source, from what we can gather the figure was originally prototyped way back in 2013, but due to several technical problems remained un-produced until now. Overcoming the various issues, Medicom have finally managed to successfully reproduce the piece and will be initially offering it up in 2 different colorways; “Blue”, with metallic purple and black detailing, and “Orange”, with yellow and black. Going on sale via open preorder through Medicom starting February 24th, Teruryu Doragorasu will set you back 16,200yen ($134) plus shipping…

Awesome Toy delve into the world of cryptozoology for not one, but two all-new figure releases this week! First up, we have AT’s take on the infamous Big Foot. Based on a vintage gorilla sofubi mini, the little guy has been upscaled to a huge 10″ tall, coming with articulation in the waist and arms. Cast in a black soft vinyl and treated to brown and silver sprays faithful to the original toy, this pre-release edition of Big Foot is currently up for grabs at just $120 shipped worldwide. Anyone interested in purchasing the figure is going to need to send over the funds via PayPal to catcatftw@gmail.com– be sure to get in quick as any orders over the allotted supply will be refunded!

Fiji-Mermaid-1

Next up, we have the arrival of Gorgoloid‘s Fiji Mermaid in glorious soft vinyl! Based on the original sideshow oddity that was bought by an American Sea Captain from Japanese sailors in the early 1800’s, these “mermaids” were created by Asian fishermen who would stitch together taxidermy monkey and fish bodies to resemble the mythical beasts. Coming in at around 3.5″ long, Gorgoloid’s rendition has been slightly altered to fit the new medium, featuring a similar 2-part design with simplified arm and head detailing. Currently up for grabs in a choice of 4 unpainted colorways, the Fiji Mermaid can currently be found residing in the Toy Underground store right here for just $20 plus shipping…
