8" custom "True Skully" Dunny by WuzOne!!!

Check out the latest custom from WuzOne... it's a custom 8" Dunny created for a group exhibition, “The truth of Pinocchio. A different way of storytelling” which launches the 22nd of November and runs till the 29th at GKO Gallery, Tolosa (Spain). Titled "True Skully", Wuz mentions that he tried to highlight elements of the classic design of the Pinocchio character he found most representative... especially the colors, not so much serious forms such as his famous nose. Just like all his customs, this is 100% hand painted using spray paint, acrylics, markers and finished off with a matte varnish. Stunning work, as always!

The Disarticulators’ OG “Ooze-It Green” sofubi Oozeball preorder & Post NYCC 2014 sale!!!

Debuting at the Rampage Toys x Tru:Tek NYCC booth in prototype form a couple of weeks back, The Disarticulators are proud to reveal that their sofubi Oozeball will finally be available to preorder this week as part of our HUGE post-NYCC sale! A follow-up to last years hugely popular keshi-ball release, the DA’s Tru:Tek has completely redesigned the figure from the ground up. Beautifully sculpted by none other than Zectron, the 2-part design has been upscaled from the original 2″ diameter to little over 3″- making it both more in-keeping with the classic Madball scale! Currently undergoing wax prototyping over in Japan, the figure is set to be produced in a super-squishy soft vinyl mirroring the original Ooze-It doll, with this first "OG" release coming in an unpainted, pantone perfect deep green (artist interpretation subject to change). Up for preorder in the Man-E-Toys store HERE for a month starting this Friday, October 24th at 9pm GMT until Monday, November 24th, the OG sofubi Oozeball has been priced at just $50 shipped worldwide. ETA for the figure has been set for late January/early February 2015... but they are not done with just that news, there is MORE!!!

VARIANT REVEALED: Ferg's 8-inch tall GID "Misfortune Cat 'Black and Blue'" Retailer Edition!

For the recently revealed "Black and Blue" retailed edition of Ferg's "Misfortune Cat," there will be a randomly inserted variant edition: the pictured blue glow-in-the-dark one. This 8-inch tall GID figure, cast in vinyl and ABS plastic with painted accents, will comprise roughly 10% of the entire run. Available soon from your favorite designer toy shop, these will retail for $85 apiece… though you won't know if you got the regular or variant edition until you open it!

Jeff Lamm × Unbox Industries's "SMD5" & "Otrovno" Figure(s) Coming Soon!

Unbox Industries have revealed the newest Jeff Lamm's cute-kaiju creation, "SMD5," which they will be releasing in vinyl. Pictured above from the backside, this test pull lacks the character's piping, as they are currently making sure all the parts simply fit together well. Probably around 6½-inches tall, to be inline with the other Lamm designed releases by Unbox, this character might have a counterpart… or, as I'm guessing, it has cast guts for innards. Pictured below, Lamm revealed what he's calling "Otrovno," the "disintegrating guts monster," which appears to share many design elements with "SMD5." So either this is the 'battle-damaged' version of the figure or it is the guts to the piece, I think. On a side note, Otrovno is Serbo-Croatian for poisonous or venomous; don't know if that indicates anything, but it certainly can't hurt to know!

COMING SOON: threeA's "Irimi Fuyu" & "Irimi Natsu" are TKLUB Number Five!

Ashley Wood's Tomorrow Queens line continues with TKLUB Number Five, "Irimi." Produced by threeA, this 12-inch tall (1/6th scale) figure will be available in either the "Fuyu" (冬, Winter) or "Natsu" (夏, Summer) versions, both packaged in an old school whitebox with sticker illustrated by Wood. Available on October 24th, 2014 in the Bambaland online shop, these will set you back $120 apiece.

HealeyMade's "Coven Witch" in Halloween Marbled Resin Edition Releases TOMORROW!

While holding aloft a razorblade laden apple would've been more appropriate to our Halloween fears, resin maestro David "HealeyMade" Healey's "Coven Witch" is quite frightening, holding forth miniature versions of her own head instead. This stunning Halloween-inspired marbled resin version will be available tomorrow (Thursday, October 23rd, 2014) in HealeyMade's online shop for the special low price of $25 apiece. While the time of release hasn't been announced, we're assuming 12 NOON Pacific time based on past experience.
