Mighty Jaxx's XXRAY VILLAINS Wave 1 Set Revealed! (Pre-order begins June 26th)


And while we've seen WIPs for Mighty Jaxx x Jason Freeny's upcoming VILLAINS XXRAY line, here are (rendered) images of the 3 x dissected Villains from WAVE 1 dropping this weekend on xxray.com! Check out THE JOKER, BLACK MANTA and DEATHSTROKE!

(*Thanks to the glories of "retailer pre-orders :p)

OMG, if I were previously impressed by the Justice League releases (I thoroughly enjoyed my "Trinity"), the villains (alas not named "Injustice League") looks utterly EPIC! As well I appreciate the skeletal aspect of the anatomy being on the LEFT side of the figure, as opposed to their "heroes" counterpart's skeletal-RIGHT!

Based on DC Comics characters, they'd look pretty splendid placed side-by-side; the heroes and their villains, methinks!

Approximate release is the 4th quarter of 2016. Make your enquiries with your fav retailer(s) quick! And stay connected to Instagram @migtyjaxx for further availability updates!

"Army Green" Colorway DEAD TOY SOLDIERS by Ron English Drops June 25th @ Redbird Gallery


Dropping this Saturday June 25th (6pm-9pm) at the Popaganda Pop Up Toy Store @ Redbird Gallery (72 Gansevoort St across from the Whitney Museum in NYC), is the Army Green colorway of DEAD TOY SOLDIERS, in alloy steel and priced at US$750 per set, limited to 30 sets.

Made by Made by Monsters, the last time we saw this (as a "production release") on the blog was circa 2012, with the soldiers in baby blue colorway, with each figure priced at US$100.

I am intrigued with the "alloy steel" component tho, and makes for quite a "collectible item" besides the usual vinyl or resin-made.

This follows the "Trumpty Dumpty" release on June 16th. Ron English is ON FIRE!

STORY: "Da Rocking Priest Anthony. H, a Chinese-Japanese half-bleed, is the second member of the Hong Kong Gangster Group "B.O.D.", his philosophy is to use his fist to lead those lost sheep back to the road.
He used to be a leader of Bōsōzoku at the age of puberty, eventually found his redemption via religious belief after the death of his group member in an accident.

Now he works as a priest for a chapel in Sham Shui Po, a suburb in Hong Kong, to serve the community, and his hobby is to fix his motorcycle."
Interesting release, as it is based on their "original story" (of B.O.D.) rather than releasing what is/was the latest toy-trend in the realms of 1/6th-toys today = #RESPECT.

Characters from "The Battlefield of Darkness" story includes the first release of tattoo artist MAXX, and I cannot wait to see the lore expand!

Book Review: THE ART OF COOLRAIN


Received my package for THE ART OF COOLRAIN yesterday, and it is a handsome tome showcasing the art and toys of Korean artist known as "Coolrain" - featuring 264 pages of toy-ness to rock any collector's socks off!
BOOK DECRIPTION: "The first artbook that includes all of the Coolrain’s figures for past 12 years, is published. Various collaborative works since 2004, with domestic and oversea artists and brands such as Nike, NBA, Converse, Reebok, RedBull BC-ONE, STRATOS, Dream team, Nike Brazil team and Vans are listed. "

Publishing by 9blocks, the book can currently be purchased online here (for SG$53.65 / US$40 excluding shipping). Item ships worldwide from South Korea, and I'd recommend folks to "group purchase" to perhaps save on shipping? Or get your friendly retailer to bring a few in ~ *cough-cough* :)

Also note that there are a total of FOUR different covers to the book to be had (*The cover will be selected randomly from A to D type).

Meanwhile, here are more snaps to gawk at, and go get your issue quick!

(Thanks Coolrain!)


I've been a personal fan of his works since the early days of his hand-made shoes/sneakers (which still eludes me till this day ggrrrr), and of his "Monsterz Crew" - which paralleled the aesthetics of my other idol, Michael Lau, and he came of his own with his own sense of aesthetics and style, especially with collaborations, like the "Dunkeys" - standing out from the pack of urban 1/6th at the time, and even now.

And I am able to relive all these toy-memories, in this book, and I am thankful, and grateful :)

One day, I truly hope to own a 1/6th-scaled figure or three from the auteur based in Korea, where my collection will be complete :)

About Coolrain: "Coolrain has started his career as an animator and has built his own design world with the art toy. The first time he started to receive attention from the public was from the collaborative work he performed with NIKE Korea. Coolrain figure has the young generation spirit and culture in it. His own creativity and characteristics that target the young generation, made him start working as a figure artist in Korea. After that time, Coolrain is interacting with the public continuously in various ways through designing character products and participating in fashion work and visual work."
