Uamou — 'Astronaut Uamou' Space Week Lottery


Uamou is releasing three new Astronaut Uamou figures timed in celebration of Space Week. The space-bound Uamou  debuted back in June 2018 in a classic white edition. These Astronaut Uamous have a looser/hand-sculpted style that sets them apart from the numerous space figures which usually feature tightly sculpted space gear and equipment. Uamou's approach adds a welcome charm and change of pace. The new Orange, Gold and Blue editions with ECLSS life support systems are available now via email lottery through Thursday (10.10) at 7:59 PDT for ¥5000 ($47). Versions without the life support systems will be offered afterwards via a yet to be announced sales method.

To enter for a chance to purchase, drop an email to [email protected] with a subject of 'Astronaut Uamou' entry and be sure to include your Name/Shipping Address/Zip Code/Phone Number and specify your preferred color (orange, gold, or blue).  One entry per person.  See the official lottery page for complete details including dates for winner notification and payment.

Aaron McNaught x Medicom — Dewy Pre-Order


Dewy is going big time with a new sofubi production run from none other than MedicomAaron McNaught's  creepy yet lovable character started off as a completely self-produced, one-man project with 3D-printed figures.  'Discovered' by Medicom at DesignerCon, the Dewy sofubi (9.45") are available now for pre-order  in unpainted green and blue editions for $103 each (Global/Japan) until 7:59 AM PDT on Thursday (10.10). In addition to the pre-order, a limited number will be available at DesignerCon from both the artist's booth [3222] and the Medicom booth [605].

It's always great to see indie toymakers be able to turn their passion projects into production editions. The new Dewy is a big win for Aaron McNaught and even bigger for collectors.
