Toy Art Gallery x RecycleC – “Ta Khon” test pull figure teased!

We posted up HERE back in April about a rad new project with Toy Art Gallery and Thailand based artist, RecycleC… and today, we are seeing some great soft vinyl test pulls of this soon to be release “TaKhon” figure! Revealed in beautiful flesh colored vinyl as well as the always rad black vinyl, this figure is shaping up to look quite amazing!

Although we don’t know much about it, after doing some research, “Ta Khon” or “Phi Ta Khon” as it’s known in lore… the ‘Phi’ is Thai for ‘ghost’, or ‘spirit’ (pronounced as ‘pee’); ‘Ta’ (technically it sounds like ‘dtah’) means ‘eyes’; and ‘Khon’ refers to the famous Thai traditional, masked dance discipline… and as you can see, this figure embodies all of that! More on the release soon… but get ready, these will be a hot commodity!

Brandt Peters teases “CLYDE” head release for Dcon 2017!!!

In an awesome surprise to most of us who have followed the progress for Brandt Peters and MVH’sClyde” figure. The figure featured a head sculpt from Brandt and the DX Demon sculpt from MVH, a rad little collab, that being said, it had run it’s course and it was stated that there would be no more of these made anymore… but today, we find out, that’s not really the case, per say!

Brandt posted the above video on his Instagram showing the head of “Clyde” being pulled and mentions that “Get ready DCON – Will be releasing custom painted Clyde sack heads for the event!” which is awesome news… he goes onto say that “We will be moving towards a new body direction in the near future“, so yes… no more Clyde’s in their original form will be made from here on out… as new versions with new bodies will soon see the light of day! In the meantime, we get to see just the head of Clyde released… which is fine by us! More on this very soon!

Blingaling’s Hand-Painted “Flamin’ Hott Ghouls” Edition!

A stylized and stunning rendition Max Schreck’s vampiric Count Orlok character from the cinema classic Nosferatu, “The Ghoul” may just be one of my top vinyl designs from this year. Designed by Craig Gleason, produced by Justin Ishmael, and actually pulled in Japanese vinyl by Luke “Grody Shogun” Rook, this 5-inch tall beauty has quite the pedigree. No wonder Robert “Blingaling” Evans acquired several of them to hand-paint, granting some nice fades to their forms and highlighting the texture of their exposed ‘skin’ areas. With three remade as “Flamin’ Hott Ghouls” and a singular “Disco Beetle Ghoul” rendition, these will be available on Thursday, August 24th, 2017 at 11am Pacific time in Blingaling’s new online shop for only $55 apiece.

Three Tides Tattoo × Secret Base’s Tattooed Skeletons with Demon Masks!

Mitomo Horihiro of the world-famous Three Tides Tattoo collective once again has collaborated with Secret Base, the partnership producing the pictured “Irezumi Dokuro Man” figures in their second release version. Each standing roughly 3¾-inches tall, they are humanoid forms that have full-body tattoos (Irezumi) and wear a traditional female demon (Hannya) mask from Japan’s Noh theatre, an element that conceals them as being skeleton (Dokuro) men. There are four versions available, each named after the member of the Three Tides Tattoo collective that designed the tattoos adorning it: HORITATSU MITOMO, HORIHIRO MITOMO, NAMI, and MUTSUO. Available now from the Three Tides Tattoo online shop for ¥7,700 (approx. $70) apiece.

Buff Monster’s “Chrome Mister Melty” Set Coming Today!

Continuing what I like to call the “chrome is the new black” trend of the last few years, Buff Monster has prepared a beautiful, silver-hued edition of his “Mister Melty” figures, in its regular, zombie, and two-faced variations. And I know, you want them all, which is easy since they will only be sold as a complete set! Titled the “Chrome Mister Melty” set, these 3-inch tall pieces are chrome covered soft vinyl, with the two-faced version being a resin (head) and sofubi (body) hybrid. Each coming with their own velvet bag packaging, only 10 sets have been made and they will be available today (Friday, August 18th, 2017) at 7am Pacific time from staymelty.com for $120 per set.

RESTORE’s Debut “Osaka Anarchy” Figure Lottery!

If you weren’t able to attend this year’s Wonder Festival in Japan to score the debut version of Restore‘s “Osaka Anarchy” design, then you are in for a bit of luck: the roughly 8½-inch tall figure will be available starting today by lottery from Lulubell (U.S.) and PopSoda (Japan). Similar in concept to the “CollectLister” piece, the cavity in this new villain’s chest has a “toy theater” that brainwashes both retailers and customers, but the true icing on this beautiful cake, of course, is the Punch & Judy-like rendition of the artist’s own “Kingdom Mind“! And, to date, we still haven’t seen what lurks under the cheerful mask this piece wears, so you’ll have to win one of these ¥16200 (approx. $149) apiece figures to learn what his true face looks like!
