Tenacious Toys at NYCC: Exclusive Empty Wolf Blue by Kuro x J.T Studio


As part of it's NYCC release schedule, Tenacious Toys will offer several exclusives including the Empty Wolf Blue by Kuro x J.T Studio. The shop's first J.T Studio exclusive feels tailor-made from their signature blue to the wolf which reminds us of their dog mascot.  Limited to 100 pieces, the Empty Wolf Blue figures (7" long) will be available from the Tenacious Toys booth [#780] for $99 each. This may be one of the last new vinyl releases from J.T as he is re-focusing efforts on his 1/6 figures and moving away from vinyl.

Tristan Eaton x Kidrobot — 'New Money' Metal 5" Dunny (10.4)


It's been 16 or so years, since Tristan Eaton created the Dunny for Kidrobot, igniting the art toy scene in the United States as a novel canvas for artistic expression. Nearly ten years after his last Dunny design, he returns to his enduring creation with incomparable style.

Echoing his fragmented painting style seen on numerous striking murals around the world, the New Money 5" Dunny is a gleaming expression of his evolved artistry. Crafted in brilliant, chromed metal, with strips of filigree, symbols and disjoint text flowing effortlessly across the surface, the new edition transcends the Dunny's origins, blurring the lines between art object and toy. The innovative edition delivers an enduring, durable statement with the use of metal, the ideal material for chroming.

Tristan Eaton will debut the New Money 5" Metal Dunny ($100) on Friday (10.4, 6 PM) with a signing and limited quantity release at his Strange Future solo show (10.3 - 10.6)  in New York City.  This will be the only opportunity to purchase a signed figure. The Lower East Side art show and release location will be announced shortly. In addition to the NYC release, New Money will subsequently be available through retail channels.

Target Exclusive Star Wars Collection by Futura x Funko

Untitled 3Funko has announced a new Star Wars x Futura collection, to be available exclusively at Target stores in conjunction with Triple Force Friday (10.4)—a coordinated release of a huge number of Star Wars merchandise.  The collection features the NYC graffiti legend's take on the iconic sci-fi franchise and the infamous Boba Fett with several POP vinyl toys as well as apparel (Tees + Caps) as well as a backpack. Many of the items feature Futura's signature splatter graffiti treatment including the Boba Fett seen above as well as two larger 10" versions with minimal line graphics. 

While not included in the official Target x Funko PR image, Futura has also shown what appears to be a Jawa POP with his camouflage design. Perhaps there's more coming as well.

It's great to see Futura reaching a wide audience with this new Star Wars x Target x Funko collection.  This Friday's the day, be ready.

Toy Tokyo at NYCC: Marvin the Martian Monotone SFBI from Ron English


As part of it's NYCC lineup, Toy Tokyo will debut the new Looney Tunes-licensed Marvin the Martian Monotone SFBI vinyl art toy from Ron English and Pop Life Global. The gray, white and black palette complements the artist's signature grin concept. While Marvin missed the B&W era of cartoon by just a few years, the monotone edition seems a fitting tribute to the spacey character which debuted in 1948.

The Marvin the Martian Monotone SFBI toys will be available from the Toy Tokyo booth [588/688] during New York Comic Con (10.3 - 10.6).
