Neomlei x Mighty Jaxx — Skull House (10.12)


Illustrator Neomlei (Eli Klemmeck) brings his original illustration, How Do I Live In This House, into 3D with the brand-new Skull House polystone figure (6") from Mighty Jaxx.Offering an alternative, darker take on the ubiquitous home metaphor, the new piece features a house nearly engulfed by the two halves of the skull that surrounds it. Done in a glossy black+white design, Skull House's stark appearance is a strong translation of the mood of the original piece and carries the artist's intent well.

Junko Mizuno x Kidrobot — La Flamme 8" Dunny


It's been four years since Junko Mizuno's Violet Soda 8" Dunny. Now she returns in wicked style with a brand-new 8" Dunny.  La Flamme features an intricate green + gold design with sculpted, translucent light red flames burning along the head and body. The design reaches new heights between the Dunny's ears where a diminutive demon-like character sits, nestled between two large horns, adorned with floral flourishes.  Beyond the numerous sculpted elements, La Flamme features an unfolding story with detailed pad printing from head to toe, front to back. Finally, the mystical one holds a golden skull and crossbones tree.

The La Flamme 8" Dunny from Junko Mizuno and Kidrobot will be released by Tomenosuke on 7:59 AM PDT on Friday (10.11) for ¥14,300 yen ($133) and will be available from multiple retailers and KR shortly, likely on Friday as well.

Superplastic Teases King Janky The Fifth (10.10)


Superplastic continues to tease its upcoming King Janky The Fifth 3.5" figure. The popular design began with the Kickstarter campaigns and how has a momentum of its own.  From today's rear shot and yesterday's part shot of the face, the design seems to feature a fiery bird. The polka dot socks and underwear are a nice touch — there's nothing ordinary about this royal bird.  Look for King Janky #5 to drop on Thursday (10.10), most likely at 9 AM PDT barring a Superplastic curveball. Or perhaps this is a stealth TTF drop ? Naaah… right?

Uamou is releasing three new Astronaut Uamou figures timed in celebration of Space Week. The space-bound Uamou  debuted back in June 2018 in a classic white edition.

The new Orange, Gold and Blue editions with ECLSS life support systems are available now via email lottery through Thursday (10.10) at 7:59 PDT for ¥5000 ($47). Versions without the life support systems will be offered afterwards via a yet to be announced sales method.

Jim Dreams x OKluna — Jobi Chunk Debuts at TTF (10.10)


After a few teases, Jim Dreams and OKluna have revealed Jobi Chunk.  The fun new collaborative toy features both artist's signature characters in a clever design that plays off the front/back, expected/unexpected concept. From the front, Jobi looks like he's hitching a ride with his new found Chunk (Chubbi) bud, but the back reveals a more amusing story.

Jobi Chunk will debut at Taipei Toy Festival from the Unbox booth [A73-A74] on 10.10 at 3 PM with a signing and release.

Continuing their recent run of beverage-themed editions, Ziqi Wu and Unbox Industries will release the Supersize Dino Lime Cola soft vinyl figure on Saturday (10.5) at 8 AM PDT from the Unbox Shop for $150. First released at Beijing Toy Show in mid-August, the large 8" refreshing figure is rather convincing from the cola-coloring to the ice, bubbles and yes, slices of lime. While Dino's food guises over the years have been enjoyable, the new Cola edition impresses with the attention to detail.

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.

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.
