Monster Taipei – STS Exclusive Erosion Molly by Kennyswork and Instinctoy


Monster Taipei will release its Exclusive Erosion Molly from Kennyswork and Instinctoy at the Shanghai Toy Show (4.5 – 4.7).  The new edition features a silver design + colorful accents with several different surface treatments. As with the other editions, this new edition has movable eyes – an unusual touch for a vinyl toy. It will be available on Thursday and Friday (4.5 – 4.6) from Monster Taipei’s booth [B37].  While it doesn’t appear Instinctoy will have a booth at the show, fans will be happy to have a chance at a brand-new Erosion Molly.

ThreeA at STS: DIY Track Square Release from Ashley Wood and ???


ThreeA will be exhibiting at the first-ever Shanghai Toy Show (4.5 – 4.7) alongside ThreeZero in booth C18.  Ashley Wood and company have some fun things planned for the show including one announced release (so-far).  Back in February, 3A announced that the DDV2 Square would be released at the show.  It’s since been revealed that the official name is DDV2 DIY Track Square and is part of Canvas Series Number 1.  It will be available at the show for CN¥ 600.00 and $110 at Bambaland on April 5th.  And if you’re wondering, yes, the tracks on the figure are movable/articulated.

This updated branding is interesting in part because it’s an indication that 3A is positioning the Track Square as a platform.  It’s even more interesting coupled with the news that ThreeA has shown what appear to be custom DIY Track Squares from seven guest artists  for a special STS project.  Huang-Jia Wei, Kelvin Sau, Kenny Wong, Shimizu Eiichi, Shimoguchi Tomohiro, Steven Choi  and Zao Dao will each be signing at the 3A booth in half-hour sessions. At least one of the artists has mentioned that his figure will be available for sale at the convention-–presumably as a one-off custom.  This begs two questions, will some of these additional artist designs be released as production figures at some point ? And, will we see a blank DIY Track Square.

POP MART x Pucky – Pucky Pool Babies


Pucky is working with POP MART on a brand-new mini series—we believe her first. Pucky Pool Babies features her whimsical characters enjoying a dip, many with fun innertube designs. She mentions these are coming ‘soon’. The #sts tag leads us to believe these will drop at the inaugural Shanghai Toy Show (4.5 – 4.7).

Brent Nolasco – Arc of Time Sculpt


Once again tapping into his seemingly limitless imagination, Brent Nolasco has unveiled the sculpt for his upcoming Arc of Time project.   A blend of the figurative and surreal, the new piece features a vaguely reptilian, almost dinosaur-like creature whose torso appears to be a very large organ, perhaps a heart.  Slated for resin production by TaskOne, Arc of Time is designed to float above the ground via a stand support.
