I'm enjoying the "Kikaider" colors … if that be the case, will there be a Hakaider black+yellow colorway too? :)

I gotta say, I loved the email subject title when I read it just; "BITCH Reveal" ~ LOL (and a warm hello back, Heidi!)
And it is essentially that = a sneak peek at the full reveal of Luke Chueh's "Bitch" - as produced by Munky King and sculpted by Pretty In Plastic! Do stay tuned for further product and availability details, folks, and prepare to howl like you mean it! LOL
The IMAX Poster for "Godzilla" is pretty! Plus a distinct homage to the Japanese flag heheh of a Red dot n white :) (Source: SHH)

Counting down to the Friday April 25th launch of their crowdfunding project at drippletoy.com, toymakers Mighty Jaxx have started to reveal more than the 2D-visuals and/or announcements of artists' designs seen thus far, with TOUMA's design in full (sized next to a 3" Dunny), and as well sculpts for MR Shane Jessup and Tristan Eaton.
I like it that each design seems to come with it's own hand-held accessory and (perhaps) individualistic hand-gestures, and am interested to see more! Stay tuned to 25.04.201 on www.drippletoy.com, folks!
With the reveal of Bad Ass: Mecha not too long ago, Pobber hits us with yet another spectacular surprise uppercut, with the the reveal BAD ASS MUTANT A! This incarnation of Kronk's design is exclusive to, and will launch at Thailand Toy Expo (May 1-4 @ Central World, Bangkok). No further product details reveled as yet beyond these pics (via IG @pobbertoys).
I like it when KR does "themed" series, as it somehow leaves a semblance of "story cohesiveness" to the otherwise aesthetically-pleasing only pieces of painted plastic, IMHO. With the 3 dudes teased above, it looks to be a "Warriors"-styled clash of gangs/warlords over some corner street of a post-Apocalyptical urban city, with katannas and lightsabers! LOL
I was going to make an off-color quip about "ladyboys" (with "Hangover 3" scarred in my memoryscape watched on the telly not too long ago…) … but instead I'm going to go with: "nice hair!" ...
THAI ADVENTURE ISOBELLE / PASCHA joins TK Thiddy and Mighty Squares as exclusives for JP Toys in the upcoming Thailand Toy Expo (May 1-4 @ Central World, Bangkok).
And not forgetting to point out the Pyjama Mighty Square seen in the above-right blurry pic… ;p
