Toy Tokyo NYCC Exclusive: Liberty Grin by Ron English x MINDStyle


Liberty Grin!  First seen at the Pop Life exhibition at SDCC 2015, Ron English’s grinning homage to Lady Liberty is about to drop from MINDstyle via Toy Tokyo at NYCC.  More info soon. And… we’re fairly confident that the base portion doesn’t come with the figure – certainly makes for a great photo though.

Kyle Kirwan x myplasticheart – Chlor NYCC Exclusive


Kyle Kirwan will be releasing an exclusive colorway of his Chlor resin figure through the myplasticheart booth #113. Chlor stands 5.5” tall and is a part of his Cavus Bloom series and is painted in a GID green. Each figure will retail $30 and will be very limited! We are curious on how beautifully this thing glows!

Day 11:

One of the things I was most excited about upon entering Manchester proper was a chance to encounter the rare Cavus Bloomus that reside solely within the kingdom. There has never been a proper study of them, so I’ve spent the last few years interviewing anyone who has encountered one of these fascinating subterranean Blooms. From my research I have learned that there are at least six distinct varieties of this subspecies and they are somehow frothy. Nearly every subject has reported that the Cavus Bloomus “smell and bubble.” It is unfortunate that with my breathing apparatus in place I will be unable to verify their odor for myself. I’ve also heard there are marked physical differences between each hue and they are almost nothing like the more common Terra Bloomus that reside in the rest of Dor. My theory is that Cavus Bloomus are mutated Terra, physically changed by years of exposure to the multitude of gasses in the caves. There are tales of fluffy footed Blues and single-eyed Reds. According to some the Purples possess stumpy little legs and fly about. Yellows and Greens are said to be friendly and less wary of the Cave People. No one knows much about the Orange beyond the fact that they definitely exist. I look forward to encountering these creatures myself for a chance to apply the Naturalist Scientific Process to their study.

Super7 at NYCC – Wing Kong, Cab Dragon and MOTU


Super7 will be exhibiting at NYCC this year [booth #126] and they’ve started to pull back the curtain on what they’ll be bringing to the big apple.  Here’s a look at several newly announced vinyl figs including two new original editions: the red hot Wing Kong Maroon Baboon ($95) and the Original Orange Cab Dragon figure with skate legend Steve Caballero ($50).  

S7 will also release two new MOTU sofubis which pay homage to the vintage Speclatron bootlegs—Skeletor ($65) and Beastman ($65). Per their lineage, each features a clear + glitter torso.  As before, these come in fancy window boxes rather than bag + header.  While these four would make a pretty solid lineup, it sounds like there’s more to be announced shortly.
