Ron English Pop Mart Exclusive Punk Skunk Tie-Dyed Fluorescent (12.14)

image001

Ron English’s Punk Skunk returns in a new Pop Mart exclusive  Tie-Dyed Fluorescent edition. The new vibrant version of the 9” vinyl art toy channels the peaceful vibe of the 60’s where weed, tie-dyed tees, and flower power held sway.  As vivid as the new Punk Skunk looks in regular light, the fluorescent paint delivers a groovy turn under a black light.   

The new Punk Skunk drops today (12.14), exclusively from both of Ron English’s two Pop Mart locations —Beverly Hills and Beacon, NY—for $125 each.

80s Workout Action Figures by Better Day Toys

45524131_2540745089283426_4005814345435689441_n

Spanish sculptor/toy artist Julio Sanchez Roldan of Better Days Toys has just released his ambitious 80s Workout action figures featuring ten different designs. The toys take us back to the decade that many of us look back and smile at with head-shaking, ‘that was us’ bemusement, a moment in time where leg warmers, parachute pants, and fanny packs were very much in vogue.  

80s Workout reminds us not only of the rigors and joys of the self-empowering fitness movement, but also of the music and the outfits that went hand and hand with it. Each of the hand-crafted 4.9” resin figures features oh-so-80’s outfits and includes a random color of boombox. With five-points of articulation, detailed paint designs and glorious full-color backing cards featuring vintage workout photos, Better Day Toys has put in a grueling workout of his own to bring these ladies to life.  The 80s Workout figures are available for pre-order for $75 each from the Better Days Toys shop and will ship roughly 3 weeks after ordering.

Fools Paradise x TMALL — Super Professional 2 Director’s Cut (12.11)

47420329_1173533442812785_4403741347165805177_n

Fools Paradise and China’s ecommerce site Tmall have joined forces once again for another alternate Super Professional edition.  Last time it was a GID edition of the original Super Professional set  and now we have the Director’s Cut edition of Super Professional 2.

The story line here seams to be that the Super Professional and his protégé have finally triumphed over the piranha plant — who has gone from a vibrant red to a weakened  brown shade with his pipe switched from fresh green to defeated read. There are some other color changes, with the professional going all black, his assistant going brunette, and the bullet seeing red, literally.

Super Professional Director’s Cut will be available for pre-order on December 10th at 8 AM PST directly from Fools Paradise. For Chinese collectors, the set will be available at Tmall on 12.12.
