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.

Limited to just 100 pieces, Big Poppa drops at Five Points Fall on Friday (10.4) at 6 PM EDT for $150.  Stay sharp.

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.

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.

Unbox x Go Nagai x Kenny Wong — Devilmolly Sirene Edition (9.28)


First released at Superfestival 82 last weekend in Japan, the Devilmolly Sirene Edition (8") from Go Nagai x Kenny Wong will be available this Saturday (9.28) at 8 AM PDT from Unbox's online shop for $100 each. Devilmolly is a seamless blending of Go Nagai's iconic Devilman and Kenny Wong's beloved Molly characters. Rather than a mere composite, the coherent new figure retains the essence of each character.

The clever figure design allows for expressive poses. Her bent right arm is key, allowing Devilymolly to cover her mouth or eye while the straight left arm can be positioned behind her back for the classic nice vs. naughty pose. The Sirene edition features a light-hued design blending gold, milky white, blue and pink primary accents with pink, flesh-colored vinyl. Based on the photos it appears that this edition may have black light-reactive paint.

Dirtyrobot x Mighty Jaxx — DeadMen (9.28)


DeadMen by Dirty Robot (UK illustrator Daniel Isles) features two bearers of death, sent to bring souls into the afterworld.  The latest art toy project from Mighty Jaxx, the 7" vinyl art toy features two DeadMen in action poses, set against a fog backdrop/base. Based on one of the artist's illustrations, the diorama-style piece allows for dynamic poses not normally seen with art toys while offsetting the downsides of the base by working it into the characters' world.

DeadMen will be released for pre-order on Saturday (9.28) at 6 AM PDT from Mighty Jaxx for $199 (w/free shipping) and is slated to ship in March of 2020.

MoMA Exclusive DOB-kun figure by Takashi Murakami x Instinctoy


The MoMA Design Store is now taking orders for the brand-new DOB-kun figures from Takashi Murakami, with production by Instinctoy. There are apparently five MoMA exclusive editions with four colorways still available: Light Blue, Fuschia, Light Pink and White. The iconic standard blue edition appears to have sold out. As we saw with the early proto pictures, Instinctoy has gone to great lengths to ensure quality especially in terms of the number of individual pieces used for the eyes alone. This approach should allow extremely crisp painted details. 

A must-have for Takashi Murakami collectors, the 9" DOB-kun vinyl figures are available now for pre-order at the MoMA Design Store for $650 each and are currently backordered with an estimated availability date of December 20th, 2019.

The 'Xmas hater is back in four editions: Grinch Green, Vintage Green, White and Blue.  All four will be available for pre-order this Sunday (9.29) at 12 PM PDT from Mahalo Cabin for £64.99 ($80).  These are slated to ship at the end of November/Early December, plenty of time for Mr. Frown to pass judgment on your holiday cheer.

Add Fuel x Superplastic — Fragil Superjanky Burnt AF (9.26)


Tile-based artist Add Fuel and Superplastic are following up the sold-out Fragil Superjanky with the new Burnt AF edition. In contrast with the bright blue hues of the OG edition, the new edition features a singed brown design, a result of Fragil's tiles being left to bake in the kiln just a bit too long. 

Limited to just 400 pieces, the 8" Fragil Superjanky Burnt AF vinyl comes with a matching mini tile accessory and will be available for order on Thursday September 26 2019 at 11 AM PDT for $75 from Superplastic.com.  The new edition is in stock and ready to ship.

Los Angeles-based AX2 Limited has announced and is taking pre-orders for their friendly cosmic duo.  The Little Astronaut and Foxy vinyl figures features the intrepid space explorers with streamlined spacesuits and apparently removable clear helmets. Perhaps it's the blond child astronaut, but this set pleasantly reminds us of a celebrated series of graphic novels about the adventures of a young lad and his dog.

Juce Gace — Hole-Home Pre-order (10.12)


From the clever mind of Juce Gace comes his newest nice yet naughty art toy. His first self-produced release, Hole-Home features everyone's favorite extraterrestrial with a slightly different vibe than when you last saw him. From the preview pic, the sculpting is impressive, especially that expression.  This tongue-in-cheek piece follows Gace's Wood Awakening and Maneki-Dino pieces, both produced by Mighty Jaxx.  We're wondering if this is a bust or if there's a further reveal on the way.

Limited to just 99 pieces, the Hole-Home resin (8") will be available for pre-order on Saturday, October 12th from the artist's web shop.

Fools Paradise — 'I Have The Power' Pre-Order

IMG_5757 copy

Next up for Fools Paradise is I Have the Power. The latest in a long line of pop culture homages and parodies, the new large-format vinyl figure (13") offers a fairly straightforward take on He-Man other than the clever 'F' variation on the chest armor and the addition of a pair of iconic high-top sneakers. The pose and muscular body are signature Fools' yet very much in line with He-Man in general.  

Limited to a maximum of 398 pieces, I Have The Power is available for pre-order for $298 (includes global shipping) from the Fools Paradise web shop. These will ship out in the first quarter of 2020.  If you're thinking that Skeletor must be in the works, you'd be right.  Check the photo gallery.
