Scott Tolleson x Pobber – Senor Taco at Taipei Toy Festival


It’s conventions gone wild with both NYCC and Taipei Toy Festival (TTF) in full swing.  Pobber has made the short trip from Singapore to Taipei and is sharing a booth A90 with Kurobokan. At the top of Pobber’s Menu is Scott Tolleson’s Señor Sailor—the fourth edition of Paco Taco—in Blue and White.  They’ve also brought along Paco Taco pins featuring memorable quotes from the boastful character.

Malo One for Martian Toys -- Custom Glenn Barr “Suspension” Resin Showcase at NYCC


Martian Toys is showing several custom versions of the apparently brand-new art toy based on Glenn Barr’s “Suspension” painting at their NYCC booth [#203].  Now if you’re thinking, “wait… what toy?”, it appears that these customs are preceding the release.  Shown above is Malo One’s inspired piece complete with a custom mini speaker box accessory—a nice touch, very much in the vein of Glenn’s urban mythos.  Drilone, Matthew Stephens and Fuller Designs.   

As seen in Malo One’s custom, the new sexy and gritty faerie is designed to be a shelf-sitter, one leg dangling over the edge.There’s not much concrete info so far, but Glenn did recently tease the toy with a drawing. If my creaky memory is working this morning, I believe the figure has been in the works for quite awhile – good to see it’s about to drop.

 unnamed (1) 

Since Luke Chueh’s Heads show (May 2014) at the Clutter Gallery, we’ve been waiting for the release of those sweet rotocast resin bear heads. The wait is over. Clutter will debut their “Everyone Needs A Lot of Head” bear head by Luke Chueh at NYCC in vinyl no less!  Produced in the USA, these large heads (7.5” h x 8.5” w and 7.5” d) will be available in both painted ($60) and blank DIY versions ($40) from the Clutter booth [#603] – great pricing.  While NYCC is the first place to pick these up, we’re expecting that Clutter will offer a wider release in the future as well.
