Here's the newest creation from Uglydoll creator David Horvath. Yes...it's Mothman...straight from Point Pleasant, West Virginia. This figure is from the Kaiju for Grownups collection from Wonderwall. The pictured figure is Mothman Version 1: Eye Witness Type.
Winston Ma – 9.2/10
Inspired by: I would like to express that Coke and Trexi are the most important units on this project. It looks like a Football Referee is the most important person on a Football game. So I’m using my favorite character ‘Ape’ on this design.
Ultraman – 8.5/10
Inspired by: The idea came from video consoles, It’s for fun anytime, anywhere. Just like Football brings people together around the world and makes it happy & fun!
MCA of Evil Design – 8.7/10
Inspired by: For me when I think of sport matches. What brings all fans together? No matter which team they are rooting for? The Mascot! So I tried to create a Mascot character that would live to do nothing more than make you smile. Whether you are a five year old child excited to be at your first match or you are a 55 year old plumber that had a horrible week & are trying to just relax.. The mascot is there to take the fall & make ya laugh..
Koa – 8.3/10
Inspired by: Coke and an old Sci-Fi Film. I was thinking about a Kaiju Eiga League that plays football and drinks Coke.
Touma – 9.2/10
Inspired by: My character is called Knuckle Bear. I used my style and the image of Coke and football together to create this character.
Huang, Tzu-Chiao – 7.6/10
Inspired by: Coke mixed with football (including the grass and net) with my eyebrows.
The NVC Crew (Spive, Johnny ill Digger, and Dr. Bao) have sent in some photos (and a video) of their latest custom project - Kunoichi Tamo Phayani. This is the not yet to be released Tamo figure from Crazy Label Toys.
The Crew saw the perfect kunoichi (female ninja) in the body shape of the blank Tamo. So, not only did they customize the Tamo figure, but they aso created a very cool background scenery for it. They did a great job on this custom...that's 2 excellent custom projects in a row for the NVC Crew.

New from Playstix (a subdivision of Play Imaginative) and Touma is the Mephist Fiesta vinyl figure. They will be released at SDCC and Taipei Toy Festival. The middle figure is GID and 7" tall, while the other 2 are 5".
Just in time for the 2006 World Cup, Play Imaginative has released their We All Speak Football line of Trexis. With 25 designs from around the world, this series (sponsored by Coca-Cola) is for designer toy collectors and soccer fans alike.
Each 3” figure is packaged in a specialized, windowless box that is designed by the specific designer. Included on the box is artwork as well as information about the designer and figure design.
Being a platform toy, if you’ve seen one 3” Trexi, you’ve seen them all. Well…sort of. All of the 25 designers give these individual figures a different flavor. All of them have their own bottle of Coca-Cola…since the line is sponsored by the beverage maker.
