crazychildren.......10th.!!


crazychildren series always been ML collector favorite. The first series CC1-CC10 was released back in 2001, series 1 come in color & mono version and the capsule version, the series was an instant success for ML. Then from 2002-03 he released CC11-CC20, again...in series 2 is still missing CC18. Series 3 (2003-2004) I guess is many collectors favorite....the S.F.C.C. series. I remember I kept each of the mystery parts in a cooking can during that one year time of collecting S.F.C.C. Then of course in the end...I gotta assemble that big CC30. 

Last year was the 10th anniversary of Gardener. This year is so mark the 10th anniversary of crazychildren. I'm looking for the release of series 4 and for sure will be new sculpt and new concept. Look forward to it.

Coolrain Studio 1st exhibition.



Coolrain formed his own studio called "Coolrain Studio". He continues to work on his own hand made figure and at the same time to create some new vinyl toys. "Coolrain Studio 1st exhibition" held at Square One Gallery W.D.S. in Seoul from JULY 1-JULY 15. Featuring figure and graphic works from CoolRain, GFX, Seaman10cm, Sean Kim, Lady Brown, Rockoon, Uptempo and P2PL.

The new wood statues size Dunkeys catch my eyes, the design and the shape is so clean with the touch of the leafs and the wood texture...is just awesome. The HellBoy Dunkeys and the Vader & Troopers Dunkeys is the other piece that look amazing. There are some other pieces that look cool. Not sure if this is the line up that Coolrain Studio will release in the future, but is good to see CR doing more than just his hand made 12". More images after the jump.
