Coarse Toys false friends loser – signature edition for retailers

by

coarse unveils the global retail version of their 'false friends' series, a set of two original vinyl statues. This release incorporates 'paw!' and 'noop' as they continue their fragile friendship.

The coarse artists once again display the depth of the brand, bringing about a perfect balance between subtle pastel colors, refined textures and solid forms. This merging together of contrasting ideas and styles has given coarse its definition, and has gained international acclaim in recent years.

This year coarse will roll out its cross over project with Ashley Wood, display its works in Paris, Chicago and Tokyo as well as disclosing several new releases.

This chapter sees noop and paw! awaken under the morning sun over the elastomer. Everything seems to be peaceful and pristine, and the unassuming pair enjoy their time together in the blissful warmth. A twist in the narration, however, suggests that life would not always be this easy, and that perhaps they are part of bigger system, a system with other intentions for them.

The young noop and paw! duo come in a thriving yellow sunrise version, nurtured in protective sponge. They are packed in a lifesize paw! and noop face box, enclosed with a clear sleeve with an attached monkey rabbit nose.

Take care of your new seedlings and their futures could be saved.

In stores worldwide February 2010.
Suggested retail HK$ 3388 (approx $435 US dollars)

If you thought Kidrobot was slipping, you might be surprised this year...

by
Over the past couple months there's been a lot of press about Kidrobot.

Rule changes, company policies and some writing that their product line is growing a bit long in the tooth. It's par for the course when you are at the top of the pile- there will always be detractors & critics.
Well, I've seen some of the upcoming releases and I have to say that if you feel KR's offerings had grown a bit stale, you're going to be pleasantly surprised in 2010.

The Dunny Fatale series is beautiful, and if you need proof you need look no further than the fact that KR has sold out of them. The NEXT Dunny series after Fatale might be my favorite Dunny series ever, and KR just dropped another email on us retailers with some sneak peeks at future series. WOW! Big-name artists with cool-looking mini figures in the artists' signature styles... I'm a little fuzzy on what I can and cannot reveal in public, so I'm not gonna post any details... but the intention of the above rambling paragraph is just to let you know that it is obvious to me that they are successfully trying to step up their game.
It's always good to stay hungry and to be challenged. That is true for an individual as well as a big company like Kidrobot.

Having said that, here's what else we have ordered and will be coming in the near future:
- some awesome Artoys full-size figures
- Kuso Celsius Transitions colorway
- UNKL JunPos in 3 colorways
- Lunartik in a Cup of Tea (colorful new series coming soon!!)
- O No Sushi Green by Andrew Bell
- Marshall Mashumaro by 64colors x Rotofugi
- Marshall keychains by Rotofugi
- 5" flocked King Bossy Bear by David Horvath x Toy2R
- das mo S.P.U.D. in the Tenalicious Exclusive turquoise colorway by PatchTogether

2.5” Elemental Qee Series from Toy2R

by

As a follow up to the widely successful Wood Grain Style Qee Collection, Toy2R continues to pursue perfection in developing various natural finishes (click on image to zoom in!).

Paying tribute to the living force of nature Toy2R presents the first series of Elemental Qees based on natural resources. These elements balance each other through opposites: water quenches fire, fire boils water, earth contains air, air erodes earth. From this first series, the Elementals, Stone and Wood, represent your Qee guardians and protectors.

Cherish these forces as they bring you luck and happiness sharing the living spirit of nature.

Dropping in February, this 25 piece assortment comes blindboxed and includes patented keychain attachment.
