Candie Bolton has teamed up with Paul Kaiju for the release of a special Mock Pilot painted run! Cast in what appears to be a bright pink soft vinyl this time around, the highly underrated figure has been treated to a swathe of metallic and neon VColor sprays courtesy of Candie, coming complete with an adorable matching Chibi Jinx omake. Limited to an edition of 15 pieces – Candie’s biggest painted run to date – the Mock Pilots will be touching down in the artist’s store right here on Tuesday, March 22nd at 6.30pm Pacific time for an undisclosed sum…
As promised in our coverage of the Dark Blue Mockbat yesterday, Paul Kaiju has revealed a whopping total of 4 new releases that’ll be heading to his store this Saturday, May 17th! With so much up for grabs, the figures will be split into 2 separate drops at 1pm PST and 3pm PST respectively. Here’s a quick rundown of what you can expect-
MOCKSHOCK SET- Marking the first non-con release of the beautiful Mockpilot, the 3 piece comes complete with both Mockbat and Hellmock. Painted in a contrasting mix of metallic purple and mint green against neon purple, green and orange, the trio have been priced at $300 plus shipping.
RED REE- Cast in a bright red soft vinyl, the creepy-yet-cute vintage style doll has been treated to a choice selection of metallic sprays for this release. Packed with 3 alternative bodies and heads, Red Ree comes in at just $95 plus shipping.
GID MOCKPILOT- Offering collectors a second chance to bag this incredible figure in one day, this version of the pilot has been produced in a glow in the dark soft vinyl, coming with a selection of vintage kaiju inspired metallic and neon sprays for $110 a piece.
CHIBI JINX- Last, but by no means least, we have the first official retail run of the micro-sized King Jinx! Cast in what appears to be a red vinyl, the little mite comes with gold, metallic green and pink sprays. Priced at just $20 each, these will be up for grabs alongside all of the above in the Paul Kaiju store right here…
Joining the ton of figures we’ve featured over the past couple of days, Jon over at Rampage Toys is proud to present another pair of Design Fiesta exclusives that are going to leave overseas collectors positively green with envy… a one-off custom Mockpilot and a Chibi Jinx micro-run! One of the first artists to be given the honour of painting up Paul Kaiju‘s new figures, Jon certainly doesn’t disappoint with these- the 7″ tall pilot coming in a tight blend of lilac, flesh, blue and neon green sprays with a mind-bending array of highlights, washes and hand painted detailing, whilst the batch of 9 Chibis have each been treated to their own unique paint app, ranging from the signature Rampage neons through to more classically inspired palettes… Going on sale at the Rampage Toys x Fig-Lab x Refreshment booth (E167/168) this Saturday, May 17th, we would say to look out for any leftovers online next Monday, but we all know that’s just wishful thinking!
Joining Mutant Vinyl Hardcore‘s previously posted Designer Con line-up, booth partner Paul Kaiju has just revealed an equally impressive selection of goodies! Featuring a total of 9 micro runs and 17 one-offs, including Mockpilots, King Jinx’s, Mr REE’s, plus a “Slate” Jinx Man, all figures will be up for grabs via lottery, with draws held at 12pm on Saturday (11/9) and at 2pm on Sunday (11/10). Interested parties can head over to the Paul Kaiju blog right here to find out exactly what’ll be on offer on what day… Good luck to all who enter!
Judging by his recent Instagram activity, it would appear that DCon ’13 is set to be Paul Kaiju‘s most prolific yet, with debuts, exclusives and one-offs currently being revealed by the bucketload! Featuring a beautiful red cast King Jinx painted run, vintage style Mr REE’s, 2 versions of the Mock Pilot, plus the coming of Chibi Jinx in a variety of colourways, the top of our wanted list has got to be the western debut of Kaiju’s latest collaboration with RealHead in the form of JINXman- just check out that killer paint app! Pricing and edition sizes are still to be confirmed, so be sure to keep track of the Paul Kaiju IG feed here for more info and reveals over the next couple of weeks…
