IMG_7255pc

Toy retailer Toy Tokyo have once again teamed up with Secret Base for another exclusive version of Ron English’s “X-Ray” McSupersized sofubi! Standing at around 7” tall, the classic piece has been produced by Secret Base in a clear vinyl this time around, coming with a gorgeous “split” paint app in blue, red and white that reveals a black-washed skeleton insert inside. Going on sale blind bagged (we’re told an unrevealed chase version will be added to the mix!) through the Secret Base store this week for 12,960yen ($113) plus shipping, anyone living in the US is going to need to wait for Toy Tokyo’s domestic release over the next couple of weeks…

Toy Art Gallery x Ron English’s Peace, Love and Understanding sofubi…

Toy Art Gallery is proud to present their latest collaboration with pop art visionary Ron English, the Peace, Love and Understanding sofubi! A new limited edition conceptual art piece that brings together the three pillars of enlightenment in a single sculpt – the heart, the brain and peace – Ron’s impetus for the figure was to expand the world of Kaiju toys from the tradition of the inventive monster into the world of high concept idea art. rather aptly debuting just in time for Valentine’s Day, the 5″ tall, 2-part soft vinyl figure will be available in a special painted “Vantine’s” colorway for $45 alongside blanks in red and white for $35. Look out for both white editions in the TAG store this Friday, February 12th at 12pm Pacific time, with the reds going on sale through Popaganda soon after…


Unbox Industries x 2000AD’s Visible Man…

After almost 3 years in the making (we first caught sight of a proto way back at NYCC ’13!), the officially licensed Visible Man project from Unbox Industries will finally see it’s first release later this week! Based on 2000AD‘s fateful Frank Hart from early obscurity Visible Man, the series is set to feature a number of interpretations of the character, the first coming in the form of Skull Toys’ classic, 70’s styled design you see above. Essentially a toy within a toy, the 12″ tall figure features an internal hard vinyl body with a super-pliable “X-Ray” skin, both painstakingly produced using vintage toy-making techniques originally employed over 4 decades ago. Coming packed in a deluxe display box (prototype pictured), the absolutely breathtaking figure will be touching down in the Unbox Industries store this Saturday, February 6th for $225 plus shipping. We’ve been told that due to high production costs and failure rates, the figure will be extremely limited, so be sure to keep checking the store throughout the day to avid missing out!


Better Days Toys’ “Bronze” Unhappy Wife” and “Porkbutcher” resin figures…

Better Days Toys‘ Julio Sanchez Roldan is proud to reveal that his “Unhappy Wife” resin figure will be returning today in an all-new “Bronze” colorway! The first figure in the ongoing “Mad World Series”, the super-creepy housewife has been hand sculpted, cast and painted by Roldan, standing at around 3″ tall, featuring 4 points of articulation and coming complete with a porcelain doll-style mask (Rotten Love version shown for illustration purposes) that can be removed to reveal a horrific They Live-inspired face underneath. Coming in a flat metallic paint app and adorned with metal chains, the “Bronze” Unhappy Wife will be available in the Better Days Toys store later on today for around $35-$48 a piece (TBC)… But that’s not all! Joining the Unhappy Wife, Roldan will also be unleashing the latest sculpt in his ongoing “Mini Series”, the Porkbutcher! Created in the style of classic miniatures, this sub-2″ figure comes unpainted with a base mount for your customising pleasure. Pricing and edition size are still to be confirmed, so be sure to keep checking the store for the full lowdown once they drop later on today!


The “Second Edition” Woebegone sofubi from Psycho Scimitar…

Last seen way back in August last year, the “Woebegone Mamilla” sofubi from Psycho Scimitar is set to make a welcome return next week in its second unpainted colorway! Designed and sculpted by PS’s Alex Gavryushenko, the “miserable nipple” stands at 8″ tall and around 6″ wide, featuring articulation in the neck as well as 2 different eyeballs and a tongue that can be stuck into the eye-sockets. Once again produced in a contrasting mix of magenta and blue soft vinyl (this time with blue bodies), the figure has been limited to a run of just 15 pieces priced at $75 each plus shipping. Look out for them in the Psycho Scimitar store this coming Monday, January 11th at 8pm Eastern time…


The coming of Electric Monarchy…

Designer Fabian Huebner aka Fint and illustrator Ralph Niese have joined forces to form an all-new toy brand for 2016, the extremely promising Electric Monarchy! Set to play host to a number of different releases throughout the year, the first to be announced come in the form of the “Bukkake”, a keshi mini figure sculpted by Macsorro for a project dubbed RR Series 1, and the pictured action figure-esque “King Stereo” sofubi from Niese. Whilst information on both is still scarce at present, with a due date set for early 2016, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for the full lowdown from the guys soon…
