From BurningMonster of South Korea, we have a headsup of what they’ll be offering folks at this year’s Taipei Toy Festival 2016 (Oct 7-10) via Booth A87 - which is the “GREY SMITH” booth (which also houses BOX FACE / HAZARD / HUNNAM / rakTANG). Seen up top are their booth display pics at TTF - featuring a trio of their MIWU character figures!
Note that BURNING MONSTER’s toys come in two versions: the Artist Version and Normal Version. The artist version is 100% hand-painted limited edition and sold at higher prices than the normal version. Here are the different “Miwu”s to look out for!
MIWU FLY M45: ”Miwu is wearing a U.F.O. when Miwu was traveling alone for a while away from Blumau. Fly M45 is the name of the U.F.O and M45 is the Pleiades’s cluster number.
*When the switch is pressed, the lights of UFO will turn on.” (Height 18.5cm)

"Run little cows, RUUUUN!"
MIWU STANDING: ”Miwu is a girl who travels to different worlds in the universe including Pleiades, the baby star in the universe, through a worm hole.” (Height 15.5cm)
MIWU&BLUMAU: ”Miwu is sitting on a cat-shaped tub.
Blumau, the tub, is the first friend Miwu made on the first planet and they traveled together. Blumau was inspired by Rogner Bad Blumau, the hot spring village of Hundertwasser, an Austrian architectural artist. Blumau’s name also comes from that village.” (Height 13cm)
