Kaws - OF companion bearbrick.


Spot this pic on evilBay, some seller already start selling this OF bearbrick. 1000% already selling at $899 USD each. 400% selling at $399 USD. That's crazy.......now I'll just wait after the release, see if the price will drop.

Anyways, I remember last year when I was in Japan OF shop I try to take a pic of the White Troopers that are on display. They OF staffs ran at me like wanna to kill me....so this guy who took the pics must did a lot of work to get it.

By the way...some dude did a photochop work and I think if the OF bearbrick look like..it would be much better. -->OF Bearbrick<--

Michael Lau - CSBOOTH16 - Gardener Still.







CSBOOTH16 is going to be held March 21 and 22 at Michael Gallery, this time is called "Gardener Still" same as CSBOOTH15.

From the poster we can tell that this time the main Gardener character is going to be Brian. And notice the back there is a Hell Boy shadow. With the previous pattern...one figure with one secret, this Hell Boy might be the secret figure for Brian. And I'm sure we can expect more Gardener characters this time and of course with their secret figures.

By the way, why HELLBOY....?! Because when ML design the original Brian he is actually influence by of course his skater's friend Brian and also Mike Mignola HellBoy character. So..no doubt the secret is going to be HellBoy...!!! Back in 2001 Japan Bandai released Brian, I have to say that figure is top notch quality, maybe is because is made in Japan. I'm anxious to see this new version.

God...all the great release coming all at once...KAWS bearbrick...and now CSBOOTH16....!!!

White is the new black.....look's like MINDstyle version is not Black on Black anymore. Check out this MINDstyle version Twothree. (excuse the photo quality.) Wearing Washington Warriors color scheme Jersey.

Twothree suppose to be a chase figure during CSBOOTH15, each version is produce in a very limited number. ATS member will get the chance to purchase this 2 rare figures first, all the remaining will be available at selected MINDstyle retailers.

Ashley Wood - TK.




Another Tomorrow King "Data liberator AKI" by Ashley Wood 3A is going to release on Feb 24 for 48 hours. Available at the Bambaland store. According to Ash that this Aki is going to be a little different, well....let's see how different it is...!! But for me is enough of this version.

What excite me is the OYABUN TK, Ash actually did a painting of Oyabun, from the shadow of the Oyabun is look like he is indeed wearing a large jacket and holding two swords. Available at Bambaland by March.

dpmhi...Maharishi....







I visited Maharishi dpmhi store when I was in London last week. Realize that everything is go on sales. 50% off on Michael Lau figures. And all of the Hardy private collection is all clear out. All cabinet turned into product display, but there are not much selection there to choose from. But I did picked up a mono tone crylon. After I return back to Toronto, my London friend told me that both dpmhi and Maharishi store are closed for renovation.

But, some on Maharishi facebook said they are on liquidation. But in their site it indicated they are closed for renovation. Anyhow...time will tell.


PS: Nice to meet you in London Bryanc.
