Taylored Curiosities's latest Worry Bean release can be found here, with the WORRY BEAN FAMILY SET consisting of two adults, two children and a ‘pet’ Positive Thought.

PRESS: No genders, no specifics; you can interpret the family set however you prefer. You could keep some and gift some to match your own family and that of someone else who worries. A problem shared is a problem halved 💜

The pigments are all hand mixed so the shade will vary but will all be a variation of lavender. The big Beans are just over a cm tall. Each one is stamped with my official TC and the set comes with a sticker and Worry Bean instructions in a gift bag.
Completely handmade in the UK.

(Slightly lavender scented) Lavender for healing: The lavender plant is believed to help promote calmness and wellness. It's also said to help reduce stress and anxiety.

Since my last unpainted resin figure feature, CHK DSK will be releasing for sale a short edition of his painted MINI CARBINE resin figurine "this week". You might want to stay connected to his Insta @chk_dsk for drop details! (Source: @bulletpunknetworkfans).

If you find "Mini Carbine" familiar, because it is the SuperDeformed version of his recent 1/6th "Mecha Will Rise"-figure releases with Devil Toys!

Trivia Goh AKA @trivialities has since unleashed the "Harbour Edition" of her WOOCHIE (from "The Blot Beast" collection) listed for sales here, with the resin pre-painted figurines sized 2 x 3.25 inches (W x H), and priced at US$80.00 each.

Quiccs's "Ravager" given the custom-painted treatment by Big C, who brings his sculpted spray-can aesthetic to the game!
"I call this pieces "Sanity", as working feverishly on it has help me get through some recent difficulties. This piece features my first fully painted mini Killer Can. The mini Killer Cans will debut next month at Monsterpalooza. There will be a few painted of each size, and a few blanks of each size." (@bigc.art)

A new figure to join the Sibatu family, with @kongandri teasing folks with SIBATU KECIL = an upcoming sofubi shying sibatu sat atop a tortoise! (*Kecil is Indonesian for "small").

1000Tentacles reveals the BLACK KING colorway of their "Screaming Monster & Kid" to be available at the upcoming Shanghai Toy Show 2019. Further product & availability details pending - stay connected to Insta @1000tentacles.
"... for this version of ScreamingMonster, wanted to capture the roughness and toughness skin textures which the ancient dinosaurs have." ~ @1000tentacles.

And while we'd featured the WIPs in recent past, Doktor A's "THOMAS NOSUKE" sofubi release with Tomenosuke will see the first TIFFANY BLUE colorway launching March 23rd here, "With a different edition following each week after that. “Tiffanyblue” is the first release on the 23rd, at 11:59 pm (JST)." shared @doktor_a, "After that, the second edition will be on March 30th and the third on April 6th at the same time, but the specifications of the figure (the color of the finish) will not be revealed until the day before it’s release."

There are 40 pieces of each edition being produced. Five each for AP and PP, and the remaining 30 will be sold online. All of them will come with a resin bonus miniature accessory in the style of the space pistol that was used in the 1956 Sci-Fi Classic, "Forbidden Planet."

Witness a test shot pic of the very first, officially licensed for sale in the USA by @tsuburayaprod: ALIEN BALTAN! Featuring sculpt by @picopicoshimbun, you might want to stay connected to Insta @maxtoyco for availability updates! Was THIS the character figure Mark Nagata was talking about in his Byebye2018 Hello2019-interview? #AWESOME
"I can not tell you how long it's been in the making for us ( decades ?!) but Yo-san has worked his magic and we are only months away from being able to offer Alien Baltan worldwide ( except Mainland China ).

I won't go into all the details but basically Tsuburaya Pro has finally retained it's true status as the full worldwide copyright holder. Shown here, is a "test shot" not for sale .. but pulled from the molds to make sure there are no issues ( bubbles, etc ) .. and it's a go ! From here, paint masks are made and we'll be ready to go.

I will be offering USA exclusive versions very soon ... but be aware that there will be exclusive Japan versions (that I won't be getting) .. so keep a look out for them."
