Featuring a total of 6 different designs along with 2 chases across alternative A, B, C and D sets, the authentic 1.5″ x 1.5″ Bikkuriman/MaBa-style stickers feature the previously revealed Fungah, King Devil and Giant Ghoul, alongside Pumpkin Head and James Groman’s Brainbug amongst others.

But that’s not all! As an added incentive to purchase multiple stickers, each comes packed with pull-off ticket that can be collected to enter a special lottery to win a new Keshigomu-style figure from Cure! 10 tickets will secure one entry into the draw, with the prizes being one of the three flesh-tone rubber figures we featured in our original Ukkari-man post; Giant Ghoul, King Devil and Fungah; as well 3 full sets. Tickets must be mailed over to Lulubell Toys at [Lulubell Toy Bodega, Cure Lottery, 128 W. Main Street, Mesa, AZ 85201 USA] by January 31st to be included in the draw… Stay tuned for more news on the official Ukkari-man keshi release soon!
In a follow-up to our recent reveal of the Ukkariman sofubi, creators Cure Toys have just announced a companion Bikkuriman-style sticker series that will drop ahead of the toys in early 2015! Offering up a total of 6 different designs along with 2 chases across alternative A and B sets, the authentic 1.5″ x 1.5″ holographic stickers feature the previously revealed Fungah, King Devil and Giant Ghoul, alongside 2 versions of Jame’s Groman’s Brainbug and Pumpkin Head amongst others. Whilst specific release details remain unclear at the moment, it would appear that we’ll be seeing these in the West courtesy of Lullubell Toys at some point in January. Stay tuned for more news on the stickers – and more importantly, the toys! – in the near future…
Spotted over at KFHC, Mutant Vinyl Hardcore has revealed the final wax sculpt for his latest creation, the Sam Heinous head! Inspired by the Silver Shamrock pumpkin mask from Halloween 3, the beautifully detailed sculpt adds worms, boils and a sharp set of teeth to bring the design in-line with MVH’s previous work. Due to be sold as a standalone, we’re guessing the head will be easily interchangeable with the DX Dokruo Sludge Demon kaiju… No news of an exact release date at the moment, so be sure to stay locked on the MVH site over the coming months for any further developments.
