With the original “FOG” Jungle Fever figure going on to become one of the hottest toys of last year, it came with great pleasure today to find that a follow-up – Dart “The Sabre Tiger” – will be making its debut at Wonderfestival Summer ’15 this weekend! Designed by PopSoda and sculpted by RESTORE’s Abe Junnokai, the beautifully realised beast stands upright at just under 8″, coming complete with 12 separate parts and 8 points of articulation. Produced in a stunning orange vinyl for this first release, the figure has been treated to a mix of metallic blue, silver and gold sprays courtesy of the legendary HxS (TBC). Up for grabs at “Paralyzing Toyz” WF booth this Sunday, July 26th, Dart has been priced at just 8,000yen… Unable to attend the event? Then you’ll be glad to hear that overseas sales are running simultaneously with the release. Head over to the Pop Soda blog here to find out how to bag yours!
