Awesome Toy has just announced that they’ll be teaming up with Wrong Gallery for the release of 2 exclusives at Taipei Toy Festival ’15 this weekend! First up, we have the return of the “Awesome TV”. Standing at around 3″ cubed, the DIY/custom orientated figure has been produced in a GID soft vinyl this time around, coming complete with 2 alternate “screens”; the original, They Live-inspired “OBEY” and an 8-bit NES-style design (pictured) from Taiwan artist SHON. Limited to just 20 pieces, these will be up for grabs at Wrong’s booth for just NTD500 ($15) each… Next, we have the latest version of Awesome Toy’s newest creation, the “Skull Jinmenken”. Standing at around 9″ tall and featuring articulation in the neck, the super-creepy figure has been produced in an unpainted blue soft vinyl replete with black hand threaded hair. Again, limited to just 20 pieces, expect to see the Skull Jinmenkens alongside the Awesome TV starting Friday, October 9th for NTD3000 ($92) each…


MAN-E-NEWS// The “Black” Awesome TV sofubi from Awesome Toy…

TV6

Hot on the heals of our exclusive announcement last week, the guys over at Awesome Toy are proud to reveal that their “Awesome TV” is now up for grabs online! Inspired by the Indie Toy scene’s extensive selection of “platform” toys – figures that can be customised – the vintage-styled soft vinyl TV has been fitted with a removable front “screen” panel, meaning that not only can the outer shell be painted, re-sculpted or mashed-up with other figures – a TV head instantly springs to mind! – but it can also be used to display prints, drawings, photos or even various items inside- the possibilities for different “programs” and “channels” are limitless! Produced in a black vinyl for this first outing, the piece comes complete with 1 of 10 randomly assorted card inserts including the static and “They Live” themed versions you see above. Priced at just $15 each, the “Black” Awesome TV’s can be found in the Toy Underground store via preorder for a limited time…

The guys over at Awesome Toy are proud to present something a little different to their current roster of super robots, kaiju and retro-themed figures… introducing the Awesome TV! Inspired by the Indie Toy scene’s extensive selection of “platform” toys – figures that can be customised – the vintage-styled TV’s unique take on the idea is set to offer sofubi painters, designer toy customisers and even illustrators more scope for creativity than ever before. Featuring an ingenious, fully-adaptable design, the deceptively simple soft vinyl cube has been fitted with a removable front “screen” panel, meaning that not only can the outer shell be painted, re-sculpted or mashed-up with other figures – a TV head instantly springs to mind! – but it can also be used to display prints, drawings, photos or even various items inside- the possibilities for different “programs” and “channels” are limitless! Aside from the DIY/custom aspect, the Awesome TV will also be used in conjunction with future Awesome Toy releases, including a number of planned artist collaborations, exclusive versions, plus integration with previous AT figures. Pictured above (insert pic!) in vinyl test-shot form, we’re told to expect the Awesome TV sofubi’s first colorway via preorder soon… Keep track of the Awesome Toy Instagram feed here for the full lowdown over the coming weeks!
