Andrew Bell x Gary Ham x Pobber - Winter Reindeer–Nightstalker Pre-Order (10.31)


Pobber Toys has finally announced their upcoming release, which features Gary Ham’s Autumn Stag re-designed by Andrew Bell. The Winter Reindeer, better known as the Nightstalker edition will be available for Pre-order through Pobber’s online store on Halloween (10.31)! This wonderful piece, which also makes a beautiful toy display, we believe will retail around $500, just like the Autumn Stag. The Winter Reindeer will be made of resin and measures 28” tall and 27” wide. We believe this will be a one time run, so be sure to put in an order before it is too late!

Red Hot Style – Halloween Releases: Canadian Hairless + Blob Fish


Red Hot Style is growing at an impressive rate.  Every time we look they seem to be releasing a new edition as well as prepping another brand new figure. So far each release has been quite strong with distinctive sculpts.  For Halloween they are dropping two figures, each by lottery.  First up is their signature Canadian Hairless (5 pieces, $228 + s/h) with a spooky paint job, cape, and glass inset eyes which may not match similar to the actual Spyhnx cats.   Next is the first release of their brand-new Blob Fish ($58 + s/h) designed by @redhotstyle.zc and painted by Red Hot’s Design Director Camy0810.  To enter the lottery for either or both, drop an email to 1984253856@qq.com right now (appears to end on 10.26 china time) and indicate which you’d like to buy – probably best to go with separate emails for each figure.

Cameron Tiede—Griswald Coming Soon

unnamed (5)

Cameron Tiede  has his  Wood Candy Workshop running full tilt on his next wood toy release—Griswald.  While this teaser picture is intentionally blurry, if you look closely you’ll spot big floppy ears, a collar, and a big nose.  From previous teases back on Cameron’s IG, we’re pretty sure Griswald is in fact, a lovable dog. Look for a full reveal later this week.

Griswald will be up for adoption in early November via an online release –- Cameron won’t be able to make DesignerCon this year.  As with pervious drops, Griswald should be available in a few different editions, each with a different mix of wood.

Josh Mayhem x Kidrobot – Blown Away Horror Dunny Customs (10.26)



Collectors just can’t seem to get enough of Josh Mayhem’s windswept Dunnys. The next release is upon us.  Mayhem will launch his new Blown Away Horror Dunny Custom Series on Wednesday (10.26) via Kidrobot.com—likely at 8 AM PDT.  From the two preview pics released so far, it looks like the lineup will include 3”, 5” (first time?), and 8” Dunnys.  The Blown Away releases often feel like several releases rolled into one with multiple color schemes plus chase variants.  So far we know there will be an orange+black+purple colorway plus the Bloody Mummy Chase variants in black+red+white with throwback googly eyes.

Kidrobot -- Arcane Divination Update: 8” Clairvoyant by J*Ryu + Silhouettes


It’s been awhile since we helped reveal the artists for Kidrobot’s  upcoming Arcane Divination Dunny Series slated for a February 2017 drop. The series promises a different approach than previous blind box series.  Series curator J*Ryu has hand-picked four artists—Godmachine, Camilla D’errico, Jon-Paul Kaiser, and Tokyo Jesus—to help him create his vision, a collection of Tarot-themed Dunnys based around the more well-known Major Arcana cards.  

Since the artist reveals, the series has started to take shape with J*Ryu’s post of the silhouettes of the figures and more recently, with photos of his crazy standalone  8” Arcane Divination: Clairvoyant Dunny  courtesy of Strangecat Toys’ pre-order listing ($100)—the only source we’ve spotted so far.

As you can see, the Dunny features an ambitious sculpted design, seamlessly blending numerous fateful symbols across the entire figure surface, from the iconic Dunny ears down to the feet. The well-done paint gives the illusion of being carved from a single piece of ivory or bone.  On its own Clairvoyant has all the signs of a showcase release, a perfect exclamation point for the Arcane Divination project.  Somehow though, J*Ryu and Kidrobot decided to shoot for the stars by including a  3” crystal ball companion Dunny with mirrored head and bone white ears and torso.  Crazy.
