Cop A Squat Toys’s “The Fumetsu: Erewhon” figure series revealed!

Here it is, the Alpha… “Erewhon” from the previously announced “The Fumetsu” line. Evolved out of Adam Saul of Cop A Squat Toys’s mind, these homage to the concept of The Singularity, the precise character teased above is named after the book by Samuel Butler where the concept that machines might develop consciousness by Darwinian Selection was first hypothesized. I love the arachnid-esque eyes littering his head and the vertical mouth slit that seems to go all the way around! As for his weird appendage, only time will tell what that is for…

CURE TOYS’s New “King Devil” Sofubi Figure Coming Soon!

Using a color of vinyl that mimics the classic look of ‘M.U.S.C.L.E. pink,’ the time is finally right for the previously announced “King Devil” figure from Cure Toys to be released! These “Keshi-Gom Flesh Color” pieces are especially appropriate since the character design debuted with the “Scary Horror sticker” series and the kinkeshi inspired lottery that followed.

Ian Ziobrowski’s “Being John Malkovich” Custom Dunny Set!

The film Being John Malkovich was as a truly existential and surreal experience, asking the viewer to consider what they would do after discovering a small door hidden behind a filing cabinet on the low-ceilinged Floor 7½ offices of the Mertin-Flemmer Building in New York City, a door that once enter allows you to find yourself in the mind of actor John Malkovich, able to observe and sense whatever Malkovich does for fifteen minutes. While I don’t know what Ian Ziobrowski would do given access to a portal like that, we can see that how he’d use the film itself as inspiration for a three 3-inch tall Dunny set for a collector. Perfectly rendering the John Cusack portrayed character of failed puppeteer “Craig Schwartz,” Ziobrowski also depicted “The Door” itself and the “Sad Monkey” as well. Immaculately conceiver and, moveover, executed, these perfectly complex pieces were created as part of a private commission, though interested parties can contact the artist about acquiring a commissioned piece of custom painted vinyl art for yourself!

TkoM’s “Gamaotoko” debut horror sofubi figure release!

Stunning fiberglass sculptural artist Takahiro Komuro / TkoM has been exploring sofubi as a medium lately, a trend he continues with the “Gamaotoko” creature. Inspired by classic kaiju like Hedorah, this beast is not meant to be composed of industrial waste but rather biological waste… that is to say, feces. Yes, this crap creature is a stunning vinyl sculpture, standing 8½-inches tall and having five points of articulation. Limited to an edition of 20 pieces for this debut color scheme, “Gamaotoko #1” will be available beginning Friday, July 31st, 2015 at 8 am Pacific time for a 48 hour period, at the end of which — if there are more applicants than the 20 piece count, a drawing will be done to determine who can buy the works for $130 apiece. Please visit the artist’s online presence to place your request to purchase during the proper timeframe!

Galaxxor × BigManToys’s “Fugg the Slayer” Resin Bootleg Figure!

Conceived as an opponent for the “Lucha Sharks” figures, “Fugg the Slayer” is the brainchild of Galaxxor and Bigmantoys. Created through a mixture of sculpting and mashing up from both artists, this 5½-inch tall scale figure is a mixture of resin — used for the head and hands — and a softer polyurethane rubber — used for the body and removable championship belt. Cast by Bigmantoys, the finished piece was hand-painted by Ben Spencer of Galaxxor. Limited to an edition of 5 pieces, these will be available on Friday, July 30th, 2015 at 10 am Pacific time in Galaxxor’s online shop for $75 apiece.

Kenth Toy Works × GEEK LIFE’s “The Human Centipede” Keshi Figure Set?!?

If you haven’t seen the 2009 Dutch shock-horror film The Human Centipede, then I’m not sure whether to advise you to look into or turn back immediately? Perhaps it depends on how cast iron your stomach is… Regardless, investigate if you dare, for it does help to know the premise when you see the above pictured keshi figure set sculpted by Kenth Toy Works for Japanese lifestyle brand Geek Life. A wonderfully stylized yet accurate depiction of the shocking revelation moment in the film, we know very little about this release… but will be keeping our eyes upon the Geek Life Facebook page
