Having recently debuted at Wonderfestival Summer 2015, KtoKto‘s Kaibutsu (Monster) Series 3 returns for it’s first official online release! Inspired by a mix of both classic monster designs and 80s Japanese horror toys – including the iconic MaBa Zombies – this third wave once again features a total of 3 different designs; Frankenstein’s monster, Dracula and a companion tomb stone, each sculpted in the classic finger puppet style and produced in an uncapped soft vinyl. Cast in an unpainted flesh-tone this time around, the little guys come packed with a header for a wallet friendly 3,500yen ($30) plus shipping. Currently up for grabs via e-mail lottery until Sunday, September 20th, interested parties are going to need to fire over the product name (Monster Series 3), their full name, Instagram name, country, shipping address and PayPal address to ktokto_toy@yahoo.co.jp… Good luck to all who enter!

Japanese sculptor KtoKto is proud to reveal the third wave in his ongoing Kaibutsu (Monster) series! Originally assumed by us to be the next figures in Newtervision’s Derformate series – largely due to their striking similarity in style – the latest set features just 2 characters this time around, Frankenstein and Dracula, that come with a matching tombstone accessory. Pictures here in vinyl test shot form, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that the little guys see their first painted release at Wonderfestival Summer ’15 next weekend… Look out for the full lowdown soon!

Following yesterday’s brief overview of the vinyl toys Super7 will be bringing to SDCC ’15 in just over a week and a half’s time, the guys have just revealed yet another exclusive, teaming up with fellow Reaction Figure producers Funko for the release of the Universal Monsters Haunted Crypt play set! Featuring an injection moulded plastic mausoleum, the piece comes complete with all 4 monsters – Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, The Mummy and Wolfman – in a spooky “Spirit Glow” trans-blue PVC. Limited to just one set per person, the Haunted Crypt will be available at the Super7 SDCC booth (#4945) for just $65…


MAN-E-NEWS// Newtervision’s Dracula-inspired Deformate keshi revealed…

With “Frank”, “Madman” and “Pyonshi” releasing last year to huge critical acclaim (check them here if you haven’t already), Newtervison‘s horror keshi series “Deformate” is set to return soon with the arrival of an all-new Dracula inspired figure! Pictured here on the work-bench of sculptor Kto Kto as a near-finished clay prototype, the little guy is very much in-keeping with the previous figures (pictured here with Frank), featuring a chunky super-deformed aesthetic and coming in at around 2.5″ tall. Whilst release details are still scarce at present, we’re guessing the latest Deformate will be making his debut in a selection of different colored rubber/resin at Design Fiesta 41 later this month. Stay tuned for more news as soon as we hear anything!
