Andrew Bell – KillKat Vinyl to Debut at NYCC


Oooh.  Andrew Bell has let the Kat out of the bag.  His brand-new KillKat vinyl figures will debut at NYCC at the myplasticheart booth [#888]—just in time for Halloween ! These are the latest confections from the mad men at O-No Foods.  Kill-Kat (official project page) began  with the release of the KillKat Chocolate Terror resin (one-off?) for the Bewitching Halloween show at Stranger Factory in 2012  as a deliciously twisted original resin sculpture which Andrew followed with the  Green Tea Terror for the 2013 Bewitching show. Both of the OG resins are seen below.  We had the pleasure of chekcing out the new vinyl  figures in person during the Summer and they look really, really good.  Looking forward to seeing the packaging (in non-teaser form)—looks like the OG resins came with amazing ‘wrappers’.

DKE Toys Reveals First Part of NYCC Lineup


DKE Toys will be slinging artful action fingers (affectionately referred to as bootlegs) at NYCC (10.5 – 10.8) from booth #678.  As is their tradition, they are revealing their exclusives in a series of announcements. The first four reveals include three Star Wars-inspired figures and one Simpsons send-up.  Starting with the road less travelled brings us Blart (4”, 50 s/n pcs, $75)  by Manny X Romero who’s translated Ron English’s vision of a hedonistic Bart into a 4” resin figure.  Each Blart comes with 2 of four total snack accessories and comes with a have your cake and it eat too clamshell package—a trend we’d love to see more of.

On the Galaxy, Far, Far Away front we have Bounty Hunter (24 s/n pieces, $150), Manly Art’s nod to the under appreciated and maligned Gredo. The real story here may be the packaging. Each sparkly green figure comes with a hand-painted backing card.  Doing sentimental in their own special way, Special Ed Toys brings you Stranger Wars: Princess El (3.75”, 25 s/n pcs, $100). Finally, DKE will release Josh Mayhem’s first 3.75” foray.  Blown Away Trooper (3.75”, 50 s/n pcs, $125) brings Josh’s signature style to the ubiquitous storm trooper.

myplasticheart NYCC Exclusives Revealed So Far


NYCC (10.5 –10.8) is sneaking up on us all.  NYCC stalwart myplasticheart will be offering enticing exclusives as well as an amazing selection of blind-box figures from booth #888 – auspicious number ftw. mph has revealed four exclusives/debuts so far.  First up is the brand-new kawaii The Dessert Oracle by Sad Salesman ($50, vinyl) with a triple stack of sweet satisfaction.  If sofubi is your thing, mph will have the new MITT Rainbow from Six Twentyeight ($42, vinyl) featuring a colorful, gradient-loving bumper car bulldog.  Monsters?  Konatsu delivers with a new  clear green Daioh Negora (price tbd) with gold, silver and black accents.

Hmm… Are we forgetting something?  Pins!!! Fear not enamel enthusiasts, mph will have the brand-new Pocket Pork Dumpling pins from Shawnimals in two designs ($10 each).

Maybe I’m just getting old and things are blurring together but with the rise of several new-ish Asian conventions (TTE, ATC, BTS, Toy Soul)  it feels like convention season runs almost year around. Taipei Toy Festival follows right on the heels of NYCC opening on 10.7 and running through the 10th.  And… DesignerCon drops just over a month later (11.11-11.12).  It’s a promising though pricey  development.
