Received the Companion key chains today from Japan. Each one stand about 2" tall and the quality is not bad. For me I won't use it as key chains or anything else, just is better off for me to remove that hooks and just treat it as a mini figures. The green and blue GID one are bright in the dark.....!!
Just finished CSBOOTH16 last weekend and this is a start for Gardener 10th anniversary at L.A. ML this time didn't follow what he did before for the secret figures, and many collectors thoughts that he will release Hellboy and Marge Simpson style figures, and the HELLBOSS as well. But he is only changing color for the secret figures. And the secret figures are less than before, ratio is 25:1 and many collectors didn't expect the number are that low.
Snake Square suddenly has a brown and black versions during the release, many collectors at the event wanna get all 3 colors. In the end all of the CSBOOTH16 products (each limited to 250 pcs) all SOLD OUT.
ML want to have CSBOOTH17 before the Gardener 10th anniversary in September. It will be a brand new series that we all waiting for. Finally something new and fresh. Better start saving now.....!!

Gardener vinyl series started since 2003. Originally ML hope to finish off the series in 3 years. But this is not gonna happen and for him this series is very time consuming that he can't start doing something else that he wanna to do. In recent issue of Milk magazine that he have an idea that he wanna to stop this series.
He would like to know is collectors got any suggestion for him on how to wrap up this series. You can have your say in the crazytoyz : forum.

CSBOOTH16 : DAY 1. Day one of CSBOOTH16 released Brian, Young Brian, Lazy Brian. Each version also has a chase figure. As many speculate will it be a figure that look like HellBoy with a new sculpt. Just like previous CSBOOTH...DJ TOMMY : DJ Panda, Prodig : Off World Creature, Jordon : TwoThree.
Here you go...this is the chase for Brian and Lazy Brian. For Young Brian just imagine the brown skin turned to Red...!!
Day two the Elsa chase probably turned the brown skin to yellow..just to match the Merge Simpson. Let's see other than Elsa, Young Elsa and Snake Square, will that be any surprise.

Received the KAWS OF dissected bearbrick 400% and Warm regards today while I'm still waiting for the 1000%. I know there are many peeps out there still waiting for their confirmation. Good luck to them. This is my 2nd 400% bearbrick (1st one is the dark wood), and it is lighter than I thought.
The Ron English Grin is not bad, like it a lot. The normal version will release in April 1st.
PS: Let's hope this week will get the tracking for the 1000%.

This coming weekend is the CSBOOTH16, from the previous ads we all know Brian and Elsa is going to release. Now we are also confirmed that Lazy Brian, Young Brian and Young Elsa is going to be part of the release too. The chase Hellboy figure for Brian and Marge Simpson for Elsa is still a mystery.
The package for Snake Square is bigger than all the others package, the pixelized image that we saw last time, now it shown clearly that it is the crocodile Snake, and also come with the Snake Hair wigs for Square....hahaa..!!
From this Milk magazine layout from Tomm, the topic it said "Landing in U.S - Gardener 10th Anniversary" presented by MINDstyle. Reason for that is because on September 29 (birthday of Gardener), there will be an Exhibition in Los Angeles. Finally after 10 years...he is coming to North America.
Brian, Young Brian, Lazy Brian, Elsa, Young Elsa @ $450 HKD each. ($58 US)
Snake Square @ $650 HKD each. ($83 US)

CSBOOTH16...we saw a drawing that looks like Metal Gear Solid Snake ads early this week. Here the pixelized image of the figure "Snake Square". From the shape of it....do remind me of the 12" figure released by Medicom for Metal Gear Solid, the one with a crocodile cap. This "Snake Square" do look like wearing a helmet....and also with a tail.

Another update from crazysmiles for the upcoming CSBOOTH16. This one I'm sure everyone know what it is, base on the world famous video game "Metal Gear Solid". This time ML used gardener character "SQUARE" to represent "SNAKE".
AHahaa...this look interesting....Hellboy, Marge Simpson and now Snake.

This is the first box set for any collector and completist because Michael Lau has done it again with a super cool white and monotone exclusive version for MINDstyle.
The 3 piece set is packaged with accessories. The SK3 set proved to be a highly collectible for Michael Lau enthusiasts. As the original release the 2bb1 were randomly packed in different color versions of blue, yellow, green, silver and red. This is the ultimate set as it is the only box set with matching colored figures.
The set will be available to ATS members first with any remaining balance being offered to the public.
