June 20/2019 ToyconPH Edition: #TOYNEWS #TodayonTOYSREVIL
Presenting my 2nd day/edition of ToyconPH #TOYNEWS #TodayonTOYSREVIL, I've a selection of toynews both a continuation of yesterday's and brand new offerings to be had for the coming #TOYCONPH2019 AKA "The Philippine Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention" - happening the weekend of June 28 to June 30 @ SMX Convention Center (SM Mall of Asia) in The Philippines!
With the announcement today of the postponement of the annual "AsiaPOP Comicon Manila" 2019 to next year (Read on Facebook), looks like ToyconPH will be the sole convention of these genres to be had this year in The Philippines!

I mentioned the Toy Coalition of Artists coming in from Thailand in yesterday's post, and today we present items from 3 of the artists! Starting with Jwon Toy of Thailand comes an exclusive "BLUE DYLIE T." and new Pins. Looks to be a vinyl piece (made by Unbox) rather than a self-casted resin, but I'll attempt to confirm again and update ... Stay updated via Insta @jwontoy.
NONWORLD will be offering up a Glow in the Dark PINK GLITTER edition of OTAKO SAKURA, exclusive to only 4 Boxsets! Comes with a pair of utterly glittery low-in-the-dark figures, each with their own fabric caps, and comes housed in a special box! Updates via Insta @petmaneenilsai.
Thailand's Kaze Studio will be bringing with him a trio of exclusives, with FLAME THE GUARDIAN FOX (above), and two editions of his vinyl ape with a crown; KONG RIT in (banana) CAMO, and Ph Colorway!
Made with BANG, I had previously featured both colorways (*Scroll thru to view in-hand-blisters!(, and now they come with their own fabric-printed scarves, one of the specialities of the Thai-artist! Updates via Insta @kaze_tee.

Taiwan artist Fanny Kao will introduce her LONELY LINUS vinyl character figure to The Philippines, featuring "Strawberry Ice Cream" and "Bubblegum Ice Cream" editions, both in a limited edition of 5pcs per edition. Stay connected to her Insta @fufufanny.kao for more reveals and updates!
Singapore's very own Daniel Yu has a LUNAR CREEP in subtle accented colors of The Philippines' national flag! Does not look like the upsized-vinyl version from Unbox, and is more likely the resin piece ... and I'd bet my bottom dollar there's be more reveals to come leading to the event, so stay connected to Insta @thedanielyu!
Also from Singapore is a new designer toy group "Rusho Toys", introducing their first limited-edition pre-painted self-casted indie resin toy, the hoodied "RUSHO"! Updates via their Insta @rushotoys.
Besides the debut of FAWN PIED (Daydream) NIMBUS from Kurobokan, they've as well asked Unbox Industries to produce a similarly designed figure, this time using the based of their figure from the Unbox & Friends Minis!
Neither quantity nor availability is revealed at this time and I'll attempt to update ... I wonder if it'll come in a blister-pack like for ToySoul 2018 (below insert-right)? Or of you'll need "Unbox Tokens" to get it? Stay connected to Insta @kurobokan for updates!
Hong Kong's @deviltoysltd teases us with a single image of a beast of a toy-collaboration between @quiccs's "TEQ63", with Alex Rivera @playfulgorilla! We first saw an unpainted sculpt of "TEQ63-R177A"at Shanghai Toy Show earlier in the year (images below), with no further updates UNTIL NOW! The green-trimmed and accented figure is to be a ToyconPH exclusive! We will most definitely update when more is revealed!

Well it looks like the cat is out of the bag... Thanks to the @deviltoysltd team for bringing this ridiculously badass @quiccs x @playfulgorilla Collab to life!! This was an early prototype, based on my Gorilla’d out Teq design (TeQR77A), showcased and caught in the wild last weekend at the Shanghai Toy Show! It’s still early in production and way more details will be dropping soon. I’m extremely humbled and honored by the opportunity and can’t wait to unleash this beast, my first full vinyl production, into the world! Follow @deviltoysltd @quiccs and @playfulgorilla for more updates as they come!
