Indonesia Comic Con 2016 (www.indonesiacomiccon.com) opens October 1st thru October 2nd this coming weekend, at the Jakarta Convention Center, and we have a few slices of toy news to share, to keep your keen-toy-hunting-eyes out for!
The above-shown “Tokidoki Unicorno Exclusive ICC 2016” is limited to 300pcs, each priced at Rp300,000 (Approx. US$23 / SG$32). With it;s own window box, this looks to be the 5-inch tall vinyl (and not the micro minis) … Sold by Indonesia Comic Con and with the event logo at it’s side, I don’t expect this to last too long, people!
Indonesia-based toy-folks Alympu and Bowo Baghaskara will be sharing Booth A14-08, and between them you’ll see fantabulous customs and original creations, including the above “The Hobgoblin” undergoing Alympu’s "WHATIF?" concept, alongside “ARTHUR Sasher” from his "ZOMBIE SQUAD" series … and yes, that IS a 1/6th-scaled figure on it’s shoulder!!!! (MOPRE pics via Instagram @alympu).
From Bowo comes a few original sculpt series, including “Buttler Fams” and “Uncle Bruno” - in a variety of one-off custom paints! (See more via facebook.com/bowo.baghaskara)
