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.

And then there were three!  In collaboration with Pobber, Paulus Hyu is gearing up to let his latest version of Nimbus into the world.  The Offspring sofubi figure features a squat version of the upright Sleepwalker.  Seen above in a clear test pull, Paulus has also posted pics of several other colors as well.  We’re not sure what color he’ll debut in, but we do know that the lil’ one will drop at DesignerCon (11.19 – 11.20) in the Kurobokan booth [1123].

Clogtwo x Mighty Jaxx – War Mouse


He’s not Mickey and definitely not from the happiest place on earth. Quite the opposite,  War Mouse from Clogtwo and Mighty Jaxx is one bad, bad mouse.  While he prefers stealth to head on aggression, his menacing, devil may care pose with two precariously held grenades betrays his willingness to go out in a blaze of glory if need be. Limited to 200 pieces, the 10 1/4” pvc figure is available for pre-order from Mighty Jaxx for $100 (+ s/h) and will ship out in the first quarter of 2017.

"The War Mouse is a stealth-like soldier from the guerrilla forces. Trained like a ninja, he is the master of camouflage. An indomitable figure capable of infiltrating enemy's territories seamlessly, he moves through the shadows without a sound. While he is the toughest amongst other troopers to be captured or killed, he is ever-ready to die for his allegiance." - CLOGTWO

Super7 x Capcom – Street Fighter 2 Retro Action Figures (10.24)


Super7 first announced the upcoming Street Fighter 2 Action Figure line back at Toy Fair in New York. It wasn’t until SDCC 2016 that they unveiled the prototypes and now they are ready for a release! Taking place on Monday, October 24th at Noon PST will be the pre-order for the first wave of 3.75” Street Fighter 2 figures, which include Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li, Blanka, Zangief and M.Bison.
