“The reanimated corpse of a vengeful whale spirit, this haunting phantom is said to bring a curse of famine, plague and natural disasters to the village that caused its demise. They can be found on rainy nights near the coast with a host of strange birds and fish swarming around them…”
Toy Art Gallery is proud the long awaited debut of BAKE-KUJIRA, the newest soft vinyl creation from Candie Bolton! Standing at a lofty 11″ tall and featuring numerous points of articulation, the beautifully detailed whale phantom has been cast in a stone-gray vinyl embedded with silver and copper flakes for this first release dubbed the “Apparition” edition. Going on sale in the TAG store this Friday, August 5th at Noon Pacific time, BAKE-KUJIRA has been priced at just $95 plus shipping…
Having had continued success with both versions of the Guzo Kaiju, kaiju color designer-come-producer Leo Sofvi Bouya has been hard at work on an all-new line of figures… proudly present the Ouroboros! Featuring 3 very different designs; “Iris”, who appears to be modelled on Leo’s recurring Fairy mascot, 50’s styled ‘bot Gravior, plus, in a nod to “Taboo” Guzo, the shark-toothed Typhon. Whilst details on the trio are still pretty scarce, it would appear that they’ll be much smaller than Guzo at around 6″-7″, each coming with fully-interchangeable heads, torsos, arms and legs. Pictured here in final wax prototype form, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for Ouroboros first release very soon!
Jon Malmstedt over at Rampage Toys is proud to announce that his Uglier Unicorn will be seeing its first official public release later this week! Sculpted by Splurrt based on Jon’s original Ugly Unicorn design, the mono-browed monster stands at around 4″ tall with articulation at the waist. Produced in a vibrant green vinyl for this latest outing, the figure has been treated to a bevy of stunning metallic green, flesh, red and yellow sprays in a similar vein to the previously released Pigumon version. Going on sale at Design Fiesta this Sunday, May 15th, a number of blank and painted versions will be held back for an online release the following Monday… Look out for news of more Rampage DF exclusives later this week!
Sofubi producer Luke Rook aka Grody Shogun has just unveiled a new collaborative project he’s been working on with artist Boon Velvet, the stunning She Headless Horse! A huge sidestep from Grody’s usual output of misfit monsters, this beautiful piece – featuring a female bust cast inside a clear horse head – is said to be the first in an ongoing series entitled Yokai Americana. Whilst further information is still forthcoming at present, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for a debut release through the Lulubell Toys store soon…

Kicking things off with a bang, the first figure to be revealed comes in the form of the gorgeous Robo Ace you see above… Standing at around 7″ tall, the 4-part, vintage style ‘bot has been produced in a mesmerising glitter-infused blue soft vinyl this time around, complete with masked black, white, red and silver sprays. Priced at just £40, the limited edition piece will be up for grabs alongside a number of other soon-to-be-revealed figures at the Comet Debris booth (#41) on Saturday, April 9th… Look out for more reveals soon!
