NYCC: NVC's Ishikawa The Roller @ myplasticheart (#866)

Dr. Bao and Spive of NVC will drop a very special release of their new Ishikawa the Roller resin figure at NYCC in the myplasticheart booth (#866) starting on Friday (4.18) @ 3 PM.  They've readied five Ishikawas with  unpainted white faces for NYCC and will offer them for $175 each. Unpainted faces?   Bao and Spive will be customizing the color of the faces for each collector on Saturday (4.19) LIVE at the mph booth.  That's plenty dope but NVC always goes the extra mile -- so they've created five hand-painted boxes for the figures.  Each buyer gets to choose his or her box (first come / first served).  The five NYCC figures are part of the original colorway run limited to a total of just 20 figures.  Click through for pics of Ishikawa and the custom boxes up close.

NYCC: MINDstyle's Mechtorians Paint Masters by Doktor A

MINDstyle turned heads with the unveiling of their Mechtorians mini-fig series created by renowned toy customizer Doktor A earlier this year @  Toy Fair.  While we wait for the release of these steampunk infused minis, MINDstyle will release 10  resin paint masters of the  Mr. Head figure  @ NYCC (4.18 - 4.20).  Each of these paint masters   is 7% larger than the upcoming production figures (to account for vinyl shrinkage). They will be available for $199.99 each  starting on Friday April 18th  from 4 PM at the MINDstyle booth (#1313).  These are strictly limited to 1 per customer.    This is a rare opportunity -- a hand-painted pre-production piece from what is shaping up to be one of the hottest mini series of '08.

Mike Burnett's Neighborwood @ NYCC

Mike Burnett makes amazing hand-crafted and painted wood toys.  In a fit of creative insanity, he created a wood DIY figure just for the Neighborwood show that went down in Portland  back in December '06.  Thanks to Bigshot Toyworks, artists all over will  now get a chance to paint on  a real wood DIY figure with the imminent  release of the production Neighborwood figures.

Neighborwood comes in a ready to paint and hang wood box with a target retail price of somewhere between $40 - $45.  The first run is 500 figures but if they get snatched up, Bigshot Toyworks will create a new supply to field a  global army of custom wood figures.  Visit Bigshot Toyworks at NYCC (4.18 - 4.20) in booth #949 to check out Neighborwood and their other sweet toys.  No promises, but it sounds like a small supply of Neighborwood figures might be avaliable for purchase at the show.
