Fingers Crossed: Mini Wooper Looper Autumn GID for NYCC


So… Assuming favorable winds, kind customs people, and good fortune, myplasticheart [#888] will release their exclusive Mini Wooper Looper Autumn (GID) edition from Gary Ham and Pobber for $35.  Fingers crossed!

This is the first Mini Wooper Looper to make it out into the wild.  Having had a chance to play with these briefly in Beijing, these are pretty amazing – a must for Gary Ham / Wooper Looper fans.  Really well done all the way ‘round.

Tenacious Toys’ Danger Dog at NYCC


Tenacious Toys has quite the lineup for NYCC, much of which we’ve previewed over the past few days or so.  Yet, we’d be sad if we didn’t give Danger Dog, the Tenacious mascot vinyl some love.

Danger will be large and in charge at the TT booth [#780] in several editions and forms.  Rampage Toys has given the pup a wild neon pink (+blue) makeover with a run of 10 customs ($75).  On the production side, the fearless mascot will represent in both the painted OG (5”, $45) and blank white DIY editions ($40).

And… Danger is also the star of the very first Tenacious Toys pin in an NYCC exclusive edition (100 pieces, 1.5” wide, $10) brought to life by  Nitelyfe Pins. Dig the design with fancy flourishes.  Oh, did we mention that you’ll get the pin as a fun free bonus if you purchase $100 or more at the booth ?

Do A Double Take at NYCC with ‘Porgbacca and Chorg’ from The Katerpillar


So, quick confession…  While I adore Ewoks, not so much for the Porg… Maybe I’m just being contrary because I know they were designed to be popular or, they came second… Somehow that’s related to The Katerpillar’s Porgbacca and Chorg carded action-figure set (3.75”, 25 s/n pcs, $75) coming to NYCC by way of DKE [#575].  The fun, trading places style set re-imagines the annoying ones as fierce warriors and the wookie, as well a furball.  Fun idea and even better execution – check that Porgbacca face.

DKE Toys Tempts NYCC with Barttafinger by Danny Wicked


Out of DKE Toy’s entire NYCC lineup, the funniest and most innovative just might be Danny Wicked’s Barttafinger. A downsized and collectible edition of the artist’s OG three-foot edition, the 8” version is not too big, nor too small, but just right.  The sculpt does a really credible job of mimicking a partially eaten candy bar, and the wrapper is well done too. Limited to 40 s/n pieces, Barttafinger will be available for $45 from the DKE booth [#575].

FYE NYCC Exclusive Astroboy GID from ToyQube


FYE’s NYCC Exclusive Astroboy GID from ToyQube featuring the ‘Liberty’ sculpt is a perfect fit for the Big Apple.  As you can see, the exclusive features a nice bright green design which looks great in normal light – many GID figures have a slightly-green off-white appearance in ambient light that isn’t particularly eye-catching.  So with the lights on or off, Astroboy should look great.

Pun Pun & Shoot NYCC Exclusive from Coarse x Playhouse


Toy Tokyo will release the NYCC Exclusive Pun Pun &  Shoot at their booths [#588/688] during the show (10.4 – 10.7).  Pun Pun & Shoot is the newest release from the Friends Feast series, a collaboration between Coarse and Playhouse.  The NYCC edition (4”, 600 pcs)  is (we believe) the 2nd colorway of the humorous Panda and Bamboo Shoot duo, following the BTS colorway released by Pop Mart.  

If you can’t make NYCC, fret not.  Moving beyond the apparent NYCC exclusive branding, this Pun Pun & Shoot edition will also be available at Collect and Display (UK), Concept Store (HK), Paradise Toyland (TW) and of course, Playhouse (TH).


Playhouse has announced that they will be selling their stock on October 3rd at 10 AM Thailand time for 850 THB (~$26.32).  We’re not sure on exact timing from the other retailers, but we expect it to be around the same rough time window.
