A small numbers of PAW was available during the Noop show by coarsetoys at Rotofugi. The things that I miss out....manage to get them back. Thanks a lot....you know who you are.
JAWS will be available later, but PAW is available now and I notice some toys site has it but sold out pretty quick. Available in 2 versions "rainbow" and "blackout". Both stand 12" tall and limited to 200 pcs per version. Figure protected in a fabric bag surrounded by coarse foams packed in deluxe cardboard boxes.
Let the count down begin. Here are little teaser of the up coming JUNO / SOFTHARD figures by ML from SillyThing.
From this teaser I can tell that the SOFTHARD figures going to look like one of their SOFT HARD super hero appearance. But for the JUNO one.....it might look like the character in the middle of his Lam Man Long CD single cover designed by Pat Lee..!! Stay tune for more update.......!!
PS: Thx Tomm.

ML painting of him holding a big diamond ring and indicate "ka bay all" in this issue East Touch a spread page..!! In Chinese "ka bay all" mean "Would you marry me".
Haha.....just to support you ML....Whoever it is....."ka bay kui la"....!!
Know (Tony) Nakanari for some times now, at first his Ninja Spiki paintings and hand made Kaji Cube plush got my attention. I'm happy to see that his new Ninja Spiki figure, because that's the character that I got to know him and his works. Back in March 2008, Nakanari and Dave Ouiles showcased their imaginative works at a duo show called "Technobabble" at myplasticheart in NYC. It was a successful show for them.
Here are the photos of the Ninja Spiki proto. Mai Hiro the new brand created by Tony will be releasing this Ninja Spiki by the Spring of 2009 at KusoVinyl. Figure is about 8" tall and be available in a few editions including the original black/red colorway.
Great stuff Tony, look forward to more update of this Spiki figure. By the way, I will be coming to Orlando next month.
Last week trying to catch up many things that are going on at work and also personal. After the holiday is tough to get back on track. Anyhow, this week is much better but still so damn busy at work and also personal stuff.
Did picked up some toyz during my trip. Over the weekend finally got time to open them up and take some quick photos of them.
The next few weeks will be even busy....gotta prepare for the upcoming show at Orlando and also get ready to move to a new house. Is hectic...but that's life.
I can't believe upon my return to Canada the whole world changed.....economy is going down. Let's hope everything will get better soon.
Upon my return notice 2 packages arrived at my office. They are the Noir de Plume and Les Mort 13 by Ashley Wood and threeA.
Big surprise on the double side printed cert. with the edition# 7/75. Also, the spray paint smell from the box, and notice they spray painted the box to black. The figure also came with a black 3A tee. Personally I find Noir de Plume look even better than Nom de Plume. Black is always COOL.
Les Mort 13 produced by How2work and is using Medicom RAH body. I like the outfits on this figure very much. The head sculpt style is a little rough but that bring out Ashley Wood style. I'll look forward to the next 12" release from threeA.
Pick this up while I was in Hong Kong. Yuiji, JC Hong and Hot Toys did a great job on the head sculpt. The head sculpt on the latest Bank Robbery version is even better. But I do think this version is more original.
Again..the head sculpt and outfit is amazing, gonna give credit to Hot Toys on how they pack this figure. It is very well protected the figure head. I bought that chair in a figure shop so the chair is not included.
Back in the child hood day in Hong Kong when I was like 13 years old, I read a lot of manga and Fist of the North Star & DragonBall has to be my all my favorite even until now. Figures like this do bring back a lot of childhood memories.
Both DragonBall Son Goku figure and Fist of the North Star Kenshiro & Rei figure are using new develop body. The outfit materials and design on both figures is really impressive...especially the outfit on Kenshiro. Only the zip is too big on the figure, I think Medicom do notice that problem, and solve it on Rei, it has a smaller zipper.
