Kidrobot Exclusive Candy Cornelius Candemon by Alex Pardee x 3DRetro (10.8)


Alex Pardee's Cornelius Candemon makes the leap from the Candemon enamel pin series to horrifying (or is that hilarious?) art toy produced by 3DRetro. While apparently many people despise the iconic Halloween treat, the toy works either way — just a matter of who you root for, human or treat! 

The new character debuts with Kidrobot's exclusive Candy Cornelius Candemon Melty Metallic Edition vinyl art toy (250 pieces, 7.5") dropping tomorrow (10.8) at 9 AM PDT on Kidrobot.com. Pricing has yet to be announced.

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).

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.

Jim Dreams x OKluna — Jobi Chunk Debuts at TTF (10.10)


After a few teases, Jim Dreams and OKluna have revealed Jobi Chunk.  The fun new collaborative toy features both artist's signature characters in a clever design that plays off the front/back, expected/unexpected concept. From the front, Jobi looks like he's hitching a ride with his new found Chunk (Chubbi) bud, but the back reveals a more amusing story.

Jobi Chunk will debut at Taipei Toy Festival from the Unbox booth [A73-A74] on 10.10 at 3 PM with a signing and release.

Ziqi Wu x Unbox Industries — Supersize Dino Lime Cola (10.5)


Continuing their recent run of beverage-themed editions, Ziqi Wu and Unbox Industries will release the Supersize Dino Lime Cola soft vinyl figure on Saturday (10.5) at 8 AM PDT from the Unbox Shop for $150. First released at Beijing Toy Show in mid-August, the large 8" refreshing figure is rather convincing from the cola-coloring to the ice, bubbles and yes, slices of lime. While Dino's food guises over the years have been enjoyable, the new Cola edition impresses with the attention to detail.

Okeh x Mighty Jaxx — Vomit Kid Fast Food Pink (10.5)


He's back… A bit gnarly, maybe even gross, but definitely a great idea for a toy.  Okeh and Mighty Jaxx return with the new Vomit Kid Fast Food Pink. The edition name comes from his red+yellow outfit, but we're focused on the first part of the toy's name, this time created with translucent pink soft vinyl. We're hopeful that the toy looks as great as these renders.

The Vomit Kid Fast Food Pink (8") will be available for pre-order on Saturday (10.5) for $119 from the Mighty Jaxx shop.  The toy is scheduled to ship in the first quarter of 2020.

BOUNCE — Limited Bounce Man Drop at TTF


If you missed out on the pre-order for the 1/6 Bounce Man deluxe figure from Taiwanese graffiti artist Bounce, you'll be happy to know that he'll have roughly 20 of the figures available at Taipei Toy Festival on October 10th.  It also sounds like he's trying to assess if he has enough quantity to open up another pre-order.

Bounce Man takes the artist's signature speaker-head spray can vandal into the 1/6 realm with a gritty, yet stylish portrayal. Taking his profession strictly seriously, Bounce Man is armed with the ultimate in painting tech —a shoulder-fired multi-can spray gun.  From the concept to the color scheme to the load-out, this is an impressive drop.

Fools Paradise — Low Fool: Skeleton Pre-Order


A little more than a week ago, Fools Paradise released their Low Fool - I Have the Power figure fore pre-order along with a teaser shot of his arch-nemesis.  Now comes  Low Fool - Skeleton.

Skeleton features the classic purple and blue design with several Fools' features including the oversized scepter, 'F' insignia on the chest plate, and of course sneakers.  What we're particularly enjoying is Skeleton's 'fool' head sculpt complete with customary moustache.   At 18" tall, the Skeleton vinyl art toy will cut an impressive profile, especially with the standard ultra-muscular Low Fool design.

Fools Paradise is taking pre-orders for the Low Fool-Skeleton (max edition of 398 pieces, 18") for $298 (includes global shipping) on their online shop. The purple baddie should ship out in the first quarter of 2020.

Czee13 x Kyle Kirwan — Badda Bing Badda Bloom


UK street artist Czee13 has mind-melded with Kyle Kirwan to create the Badda Bing Badda Bloom resin figure.  The first in a series of artist collaborations with Kirwan's Bloom, Czee13's  acrobatic design turns Bloom upside down (almost) with the character in a hoodie, chillin' in a headstand.  The new edition puts an energetic, urban twist on Bloom.  Oh, did we mention it's just plain fun?

Limited to 25 pieces, Badda Bing Badda Bloom (3.25") will debut at the Five Points Fest pop-up (10.4 - 10.5) and then will be released online on Monday (10.7) from Kyle Kirwan's online shop.

Pete Fowler x Superplastic — Hench Undead Recovery Agent at Down To Shop (10.4)


Superplastic will be dropping the brand-new Hench Undead Recovery Agent from Pete Fowler on Friday. The new edition features a camo-style letterman jacket with a vibrant flock of hair, perhaps a result of those pesky undead types.

The 'where' is a bit interesting too…Continuing their knack of finding innovative ways to their art toys, Superplastic has charmed the folks at Down To Shop—a new fangled, live video + online shopping channel that just happens to live in an app for Android/iOS.  Exclusive to DTS, the newest Hench is limited to 300 pieces and will be available on Friday (10.4) at 12 PM PDT.   

DTS you say ?  We just watched 'Sammy Sellers' on the app's Daily Drop live shopping segment… He's full of energy, engaging, wacky, and making us feel OLD… You might love it though.
