New toy company from Mexico: Bugs and Plush!

by
I gotta say, there's a lot of cool, creative stuff coming out of Mexico lately. I just got an email from a gentleman named Raymundo, the guy behind Bugs and Plush, a new Mexican toy manufacturer. As you can see from the above image, they have a TON of sculpts already. Their website and their web shop look pretty tight, graphic-wise, and they made a nifty video (below) about the inception of their toys. I just shot Raymundo an email regarding New York Comic-Con. I feel like this type of platform is a good fit for display/sale at NYCC, so we'll see what he says and I'll keep everyone posted.

JEREMY FISH "WHERE HEARTS GET LEFT @ FIFTY24SF GALLERY, JULY 2012

VISEone TUBE MONSTER 8" vinyl figure

by
From VISEone's newsletter:

"Since I started with my tube custom concept (TUBE DUNNYS and others) I was hoping to be able to release my own character dripping out of a tube one day. I worked on many concept drawings and after I developed enough skillz with ZBrush I started to work on my TUBE MONSTER concept in 3D.

Here you see the early stage of the first prototype - some corrections have to be made still before it's aproved and ready for the wax model.

After 3 productions in resin I finally step into the medium vinyl.

The first edition will be the ZOMBIE JUICE which we'll hopefully be able to release for NYCC 2012.
More colorways are on the list and there might even be some exclusive colorways coming up."

Evil Origami - A Dunny Reinterpretation by Chris "alto" Dobson

by
UK-based artist Chris Dobson, aka alto (www.studioalto.co.uk), has reinterpreted the classic Dunny form in his trademark angular style, under the banner of 'Evil Origami'.

With the 3D-printed prototype pictured here, plans are now afoot for the casting of a run of resin pieces, which it's hoped will be released to the world in the not-too-distant future.

Representing the first peak into the wider Alto universe, more minimalist creations are readying themselves, to emerge soon.
For more information on both this and future releases, be sure to follow Chris on Twitter: http://twitter.com/#!/c_i_dobson

Carson Catlin Is Making Me Dizzy...

by
Talk about paying attention to the smallest detail. I cannot even begin to imagine the time it took to get each and every single thread put perfectly into place. Carson Catlin has tricked out this 7" Raffy and really made it into a piece of art. I love the contrasting colors of the yellow thread, red exterior and baby blue interior which gives it a great pop. This Raffy named "Futz" was made for Urban Vinyl Daily's "They Came From The Streets 2" show. If you would like to pick up "Futz" he can be purchased HERE.

Huck Gee Ready For Take Off...

by
Huck Gee has done it again! "Copter Girl" is one feisty custom Munny that has a take no prisoners sort of attitude. This monkey definitely does not look like it partakes in any monkey business. I always love how Huck is so flawless in his clothing and accessory details. They always look finely detailed and elegant. "Copter Girl" came from an edition of 10 that retailed for $875 each. I am pretty sure this edition has sold out but if you want to take a chance and ask, just shoot an email at this address sales@huckgee.com.

Huck Gee And Christian Tamondong's Puchaa!

by
Secret Fresh definitely knows how to make hype for a release. This figure is named "Puchaa" combines two distinct artist works into one. Both Huck Gee and Christian Tamondong went above and beyond making this cute tea cup set. Huck Gee used his classic angel winged skull figure "Puto" and Christian Tamondong used a smiling tea cup based off of one of his paintings. I am definitely digging the pastel color usage on "Puchaa." These retail for $299 each and they are limited to 50 piece. To see if there are any left, send an email here freshmail@gmail.com to possibly purchase one.

Why Did The Chicken Cross The Road?...

by
To get to the other side of course silly! This cute "Chicken" was created by the amazing artist Cache and is unbelievably made from a 7" Munny. Cache designed this Munny for Urban Vinyl Daily's show They Came From The Streets 2. I love the use of the feathers without going overboard and the cute face on this sweet chick! If you are interested in purchasing this cute "Chicken" by Cache please click HERE.

JLED x Kidrobot Veggie Burger Bunny A Healthy Snack...

by
If you like Bunnies and Burgers then this is definitely something you should be interested in seeing! Instead of only pleasing the meat eaters out there Joe Ledbetter went above and beyond to make everyone feel included. Introducing "Veggie Burger Bunny" a cute but healthy meal for any and all. Available exclusively at Kidrobot retailers for $300 each this Bunny is made of wood and comes with interchangeable insides. You can stack on the tomato and take out the cheese or fix it to however you like your burger! I love the colors and interactive burger parts on this piece and think it is worth every penny! If you are interested in finding one call each Kidrobot store and see if any are left! Good luck!
