WHAT'S NEW

Ummikko's "Eight Islands Koningu" figures with unique helmets!

When a vinyl figure is cast, the excess material on the jointing holes and pegs is called flash, which is typically cut off and discarded (or recycled into lesser quality vinyl), but Japanese toy maker and ape aficionado Ummikko has come up with the most brilliant use for these spares pieces: he's made unique helmets and masks out the flash to adorn his newest "Koningu" edition, the "Eight Islands Koningu." Cast on yellow vinyl and painted with fluorescent pink and green, with black accents, each figure in this run is painted in a manner that worked best for the specific piece's helmet/mask. Available in Ummikko's online shop for $50 apiece, these will be released on Sunday, May 31st, 2015 at 8AM Pacific time.
