EVENT STORY: "In 1966, Marusan Toys has launched a toy line known as “Ultra Kaiju”, such soft vinyl toy line has received remarkable feedback and brought a lot of fun to children and adult. Thereafter, a lot of toy companies have produced similar toys, they have been very popular since then and even until now. Kaiju generally is defined as “beasty monster” in Japanese. Nowadays, soft vinyl Kaiju toys have generally spitted into 2 category: (a) Main Stream Traditional Kaiju (characters coming from movie, television and animation) and (b) Neo Kaiju / Designers’ Kaiju (original monsters created by designers through inspiration of Main Stream Traditional Kaiju Toys). Neo Kaiju has not only brought you the feeling and fun of old childhood monster toys but also generated a lot of new development into vinyl toys in recent years (such as new painting technic, swirl color vinyl mix, etc). This year, year 2016 is the 50th anniversary of “Kaiju” toys. "
Interview in Cantonese with No English subtitles,
but plenty of toys seen! HELLO, Brother Meng! :)
"Recently, more and more toy players and collectors have generated interests in Neo Kaiju toys. Even market is still not yet mature in Hong Kong, our shop (being one of the soft vinyl toy shops in Hong Kong) has stepped out and organized the first Kaiju theme event in Hong Kong. The event is named as “FINEST UNITED CONVENTION for KAIJU – HONG KONG 2016” (“FUCKAIJU”) and the date of the event is 11st December 2016.

We have sincerely invited artists from all over the world to participate in this event, some artists will come and some will send us their masterpiece.

Stanley Kubrick: A Shinework Odyssey - 3D Figure Available from Mike Leavitt

KING CUTS STANLEY KUBRICK from Mike Leavitt can be yours to hold, currently orderable on for US$59.00. Limited to 100pcs, the last we saw of this figure was a larger sized sculpt for Mike’s King Cuts show!
"This is a 5 inch / 12 cm version of my sculpture of Stanley Kubrick as a twin from The Shining with references to 2001, Clockwork Orange & Full Metal Jacket. It's a limited edition available until one hundred (100) 3D-prints are made. 75% of the price covers the 3D-printed material itself, 25% I added for my labor on the 3D model." - shared Mike Leavitt.
THE STORY: "The Shining transgenders Kubrick. His entire identity, even his humanity is relinquished. Hal's all seeing eye welds itself to his chest. He is a female robot. He's the ancient ape predating 2001. He grips to reality with a jelly donut stolen from a Full Metal Jacket. Clockwork Orange costuming veils him from the world in vain. Nothing can stop Stanley from drifting off into the surreal void."

Greeting my tender peepers as I launched my web browser this fine Thursday morning, is this vision of a crystal CLEAR IMPERIAL LOTUS DRAGON DUNNY from Scott Tolleson, with this 8-incher tall beauty releasing December 8th (@ 10am MST) on Limited to 15 pieces world wide, tis “interesting” that both @kidrobot and @mrscotttolleson referred to this as “Artist Proofs” in their captions tho … Dos this mean there’ll be more/further “production pieces” to be had at a later time? Or Just a rationale to release such a limited run? :)

As for “PRICE” of the item, it is something not revealed at time of this post … so my question to YOU is, *What Is The Amount You Would Pay For Such Awesomeness?*
