#1 Helper Dragon Bronze by Tim Biskup

#2 FAT TONY ANTIQUE VERSION from Ron English

#5 Ren 2 from Crazy Label x Bubi Au Yeung

#6 Image of Misfortune Cat for "…Of All Ages" by Scott Wilkowski x Ferg
WHY: "I love the original Misfortune Cat, never thought it could end up this way, in a very good way! Scott sure took Misfortune Cat to another level, loving the details and mysterious look! Besides, as a toy maker myself, I know how much hard work is involved here!"
#7 Wooper Looper by Gary Ham
WHY: "I like kaiju or weird creatures that are cute and original, this is a good example! I also like the effort Gary put into with the woodblock printed header card, adds the extra uniqueness to this unique toy!"

WHY: BEVIL needs some veggie friends, and Deadbeet would make a good one, they are both grumpy veggies hehe, by the way, I love Scott’s creations, fresh stuff!
#9 Mari Inukai's GID Nekomitaina
WHY: "I understand designing a good simple toy can be very challenging, and this is simplicity done right! Many GID toys are just gimmicks and not necessary, but GID seems working really well on this figure with that cute little heart!!"
64Colors's Marshall + Gumdrops
WHY: "I’ve been greedy here, I’m just hopeless with cuteness! I want both grim Marshall & Gumdrop from 64Colors! They are utterly cute, everyone should have a few of these!!"

WHY: "Don’t want to exclude Kidrobot just because I can’t see what they are dropping for SDCC this year haha, as they usually have some quality stuff that I need! Nice silhouette photos BTW! :P"
