#TOYNEWS #TodayonTOYSREVIL for May 18/2019

Pucky x POP MART has revealed their upcoming new blind box series: "PUCKY SPACE BABIES"! No further product deets beyond the video and these few snaps ... but you know how I feel about Pucky's mini figure designs, yeh? (Forest Fairies / Pool Babies / Xmas Babies ~ Heh).

If I cannot afford the entire case when it comes out, I'm crossing my fingers to pull the "Pyramid Alien"! Stay connected to Insta @popmartglobal for updates!

Chinese artist Jink Wu's MOGGIE character creation has taken on the guise of a Japanese "Fortune Cat", with two new colorway editions - BLACK and WHITE - currently launched for purchase online here. Each 110mm tall soft vinyl is priced at US$55, and limited to 50pcs each design. Produced by Unusual Creation Club (Instagram / Facebook), these kitties seen drinking the essence of the dead birdie held in their arms, via a straw = are macabrely sublime, IMHO!

Super Plastic has since announced the inclusion of a 8-inch OUCH THE JANKY SuperJanky by @jor.ros, as a part of their current Kickstarter (Ending May 31st). With less than 999pcs made, this is an upsized and recolored-version of the 3-inch version from the regular JANKY SERIES TWO.

Prior to that, a 3.5-inches tall ("flocked"?) "King Janky V" was also released/announced. Check in with the KS-page for further availability and challenge info.

I own and have featured both the 3.5 inchers (from Series 1) and a SuperJanky, and they feel real good in-hand too!

From StickUp Monsters come the above custom-toys from Javier Jimenez online here on Sunday 19 at 11AM EST. These are items previously made available at Thailand Toy Expo, with them now made available online, along with new enamel pins and tees! Further details via Insta @javierjimenezxl.

Eimi Takano will be having her solo show in Hong Kong, launching May 18th, with "Rice Ball Town" exhibiting at Streams (@ Elite industrial Centre, NO 883 CHEUNG SHA WAN RD, 852 Kowloon, Hong Kong), thru May 26th. Featured here are a few of her makes, including a collaboration custom with Jeremiah Ketner, and the (re)introduction of "Nibishi chan"!
