Junko Mizuno x Kidrobot — La Flamme 8" Dunny


It's been four years since Junko Mizuno's Violet Soda 8" Dunny. Now she returns in wicked style with a brand-new 8" Dunny.  La Flamme features an intricate green + gold design with sculpted, translucent light red flames burning along the head and body. The design reaches new heights between the Dunny's ears where a diminutive demon-like character sits, nestled between two large horns, adorned with floral flourishes.  Beyond the numerous sculpted elements, La Flamme features an unfolding story with detailed pad printing from head to toe, front to back. Finally, the mystical one holds a golden skull and crossbones tree.

The La Flamme 8" Dunny from Junko Mizuno and Kidrobot will be released by Tomenosuke on 7:59 AM PDT on Friday (10.11) for ¥14,300 yen ($133) and will be available from multiple retailers and KR shortly, likely on Friday as well.

Superplastic Teases King Janky The Fifth (10.10)


Superplastic continues to tease its upcoming King Janky The Fifth 3.5" figure. The popular design began with the Kickstarter campaigns and how has a momentum of its own.  From today's rear shot and yesterday's part shot of the face, the design seems to feature a fiery bird. The polka dot socks and underwear are a nice touch — there's nothing ordinary about this royal bird.  Look for King Janky #5 to drop on Thursday (10.10), most likely at 9 AM PDT barring a Superplastic curveball. Or perhaps this is a stealth TTF drop ? Naaah… right?

Coarse — Jaws and Aura Ignited Set (10.10)


Coarse will release the Jaws and Aura Ignited Set featuring GID versions of both beast-meets-Noop figures. First released at Beijing Toy Show back in August, the new Ignited figures are striking in both regular ambient light and in the dark.  Interestingly, only the beast/animal elements are Ignited: the Dragon on Aura (14") and the Shark head on Jaws (10.4").  Interestingly, the new Jaws Ignited is apparently the first GID version of the figure so far.

In stock and ready to ship, the Jaws and Aura Ignited Set will be released this Thursday (10.10) at 8:59 AM PDT from the Coarse Shop for $360.

JPX — Labubu Batman and Nong TOY: Robin


JPX is celebrating the 80th anniversary of Batman with two fun artist collaborations. Labubu Batman brings Kasing Lung's take on the caped crusader, in conjunction with How2work.  For Robin, JPX turns to it's Nong TOY character with a new design from SGT Smile.  These in-development prototypes are currently on display  at Terminal 21 (Asok) in Bangkok. The Labubu Batman hits the sweet spot of a pop culture crossover with Kasing Lung reinterpreting the iconic character in a way that blends Labubu and Batman in a seamless, artistic manner.
