Jon Paul Kaiser's 2.5" Skullee Marcy Qee (red variant) and Frank Mysterio's Black Skull Chungkee (all black variant) - these two special editions will also be available at the Toy2R / Apex booth. JPK's red infused variant and Frank's Luchadore Qee are both special edition releases, also limited to only 1000 pieces each.
NEON MONSTER is currently offering the Jason Freeny 2.5" Visbile Chungkee Qee GID Edition through their webstore - so add to your Freeny Collection with this limited edition gem. Limited to 500 pieces through Neon Monster exclusively!
The finished works from Japan, America and Europe will be exhibited at SUPERFROG Gallery in San Francisco. LOVE MOVEMENT is free and open to the public from December 11th through January 16th. Shin and Nao are flying in for the opening reception, which will feature original art toys and canvases, a Japanese beatboxer, live painting by Shin and animation by Shin & Nao. LOVE MOVEMENT is Shin & Nao's first major art show in the US. They used their own money to manufacture and ship 100 vinyl toys to other artists. Shin and Nao view their figures as little messengers of love... and this is the part where YOU come into play!
Jeremy Brautman is helping them throw this show and is hoping to raise $3,000 for Shin and Nao's airfare from Tokyo and a place to stay near the gallery in San Francisco. Seeing as they put up all the money to get this ball rollin the least you can do is give back, so that is why Jeremy started a Kickstarter account to help raise some funds and if they receive more, your contributions will help pay back the costs of manufacturing the toys in Japan ($3,500) and shipping them around the world ($1,500+). IF you feel compelled to donate to this very worthy cause visit the site HERE and give what you can! Also, hit the jump for the massive list of artists involved in this show!
