Debuting at ToyCon UK ’16 over the weekend, Mintyfresh‘s exclusive Byron and Rangeron from Koraters and T9G will finally be available online later today! Standing at around 5″ tall each, the adorable duo have been cast in a gorgeous clear green soft vinyl complete with inset black eyes. Going on sale in the Mintyfresh store right here at 10am Eastern time, pricing for the pair is still to be confirmed, although we’re guessing they’ll set you back somewhere similar to their original retail of £40 ($60)…
As part of her upcoming “Kaiju Negora” shows in both LA and New York, Japanese artist Konatsuya has teamed up with Koraters‘ Shoko Nakazawa for 2 very special toy releases!

Keep a close eye on Konstsuya’s blog here for more info on the show this week!
