To be released in mid-September, these 2,5″ tall Cats come in different color variations and are designer by Ferg x Playge. Very nice for all those who can’t afford the bigger ones – and by the way the quality and detail still looks pretty high for such relatively small figures.

There’ll be an exhibition on September 13th featuring Circus Posterus where they’ll show sneak peeks of 2 upcoming toy releases by 2 yet not announced members of Circus Posterus!
They’ll release an Eerz Mini Series in September featuring artists like Jon Burgerman, Cuypi, and Bunka.
Stephane Levallois will have new Toxic Candies released, and Bunka, known for his Chaos Monkey, will have another Chaos toy, too! Looks like a gorilla to me, as far as I can tell.
Plus, they’ll release another secret toy with a secret artist in 2013 (yes, lots of information to be found here), and they’ll release Phonybotz, small Android robots for Android phones.
Apparently Kaws is going to release a “new” Companion at his shop this year – Resting Place. Rumors say it’s 12″ big – and I guess there will be a lot of discussions about this figure due to the fact it’s not really something new, it’s just his dissect companion, well, sitting. I still like it, although I’d agree there has been more original stuff than this before.
Price yet unknown.
I don’t really know if I missed it, but Dudebox will be releasing a 2.5″ DIY Dude.
This one is already listed on a few smaller shops, so I have no idea if I’m just being a slowpoke or if this hasn’t officially been anounced yet. However it seems to be a pretty cool (and affordable) version of his bigger brother.
According to the same site which apparently leaked info on the release of the 8″ Gold King Dunny, there are already pictures of an upcoming Homer Buddha – Regular Edition. Just like the Andrew Bell Dunny and the Huck Gee Skullslinger, this toy seems to get another color version after SDCC, too! Nice for those who weren’t able to attend the Comic Con.
According to a vinyl toy store from Italy which I will not name here, there will soon be an 8″ version of the Gold King! We don’t know how it will look like, but it seems there was a retailer who couldn’t wait to list this item as “coming soon”.
Kidrobot hast just announced their new Vinyl Toy featuring South African Designer Kronk. Check this huge fellah out! 15″ tall, two color versions and retails at 350$. Pretty awesome if you ask me!
