Unpainted Glow Neo Japan by Restore, red sword edition

After the successful sellout of the limited NYCC release of Restore‘s Neo Japan in GID vinyl, Lulubell Toys have managed to get their hands on another edition, which is currently available for pre-order at their webshop! Unlike the convention-exclusive version, this one comes with a green Honcho Knife for $90 as well and has already sold out in Japan, making this your last opportunity to grab one of these as long as in-transit supplies last.


Walking Cadaver release by Splurrt, Mishka exclusive

After having appeared as one-off for the first time during Toy Art Gallery’s Halloween show last week, Splurrt‘s new “Walking Cadaver” head sculpt for the Cadaver Twins body is ready to have its first full run released as an exclusive for the Mishka store in Brooklyn, New York! Dropping at their location next Wednesday, October 29th at 7pm for a price of $135 each, they come with an illustrated header card by L’amour Supreme as well as a t-shirt from Mishka and are all unique variants, as they’ve all been painted with different hair colors. These beautiful shots have been taken by Toy As Object, be sure to head over to their site for additional picture goodness!


Dentetsu-jin by Kikkake

Here comes another head sculpt and addition to Kikkake‘s line-up of vintage-inspired toys: Dentetsu-jin! Translated as “Railway Man/People” and quite reminiscent of a certain Tank Engine named Thomas, the new head fits their smaller Iron body and as the first edition appears to be painted already, this colorway is probably going to be released rather sooner than later – stay tuned!


Marbled Halloween Pickle Babies by Leecifer

It’s been a while since we’ve seen Leecifer release a new Pickle Baby edition, but now he’s returned with a new version just in time for Halloween! Releasing this Friday, October 24th around Noon, not all of them will be available at once, as small batches will be dropping during the days to come – so if you missed the first release, you might still get lucky afterwards. Pickle Baby stands around 8″ tall, has been cast in swirled orange and black vinyl and is probably going to sell for $60 or slightly upwards.


New Chima Group sculpt!

Continuing their quest for cuteness, Chima Group will be presenting their new sculpt to the upcoming Design Festa vol. 40 crowd on November 8th/9th! Currently unnamed, they appear to only plan on showing the test shot and might not have a first colorway ready in time. But hey, an online release for this lovely fella will probably happen not too far in the future!


In other Chima Group news, it seems I have missed their last online release in September, fortunately all of the 3 figures below are still available: their “Crayong” Tengallon and pink-collar Parabola are cast in greenish-milky vinyl, whereas the Panda colorway of their Surprise crab croquette has been painted on white vinyl for around $26 each. Yay!
