Satori Kappa from Dave Dick

Satorikappa-1

Satori Kappa

The Kappa is one of Japan’s yokai and are said to inhabit the country’s rivers and streams.
Legendary trouble makers, Kappa are responsible for everything from general harassment to drowning people and animals, kidnapping children, and the ravishing of women. Now, not all Kappa are mischievous, murdering, kidnappers. Throughout history there have been some who have befriended human beings, helping and even teaching them.

Satori Kappa was designed and sculpted by artist Dave Dick. It was cast in resin and finished by the folks at Pretty in Plastic. The completed figure will be signed, numbered, and limited to a run of only 40 pieces.

Also, Dave will be holding a giveaway...giving away one free Satori Kappa figure to one of his followers on Instagram on release day.

Skull Car by Shane Geil and Pretty In Plastic

Pretty in Plastic Geil Skull Car 1

Pretty In Plastic is showing off the Skull Car developed by Shane Geil. There's no word on whether/when this glossy metallic purple Skull Car will be released to the public...but it looks to be a different direction for Shane, who has worked a lot in plush.

The SKULL CAR is about the size of a Basketball! Shane Geil's design came to life in concept sketches that were translated into a digital model. The remote controlled SKULL CAR was then CNC milled for precision and vacuum formed to be light weight on the chassis for maximum speed!

Tristan Eaton, Kidrobot, and Pretty in Plastic are teaming up to produce the Dreamland Mickey resin figure based on the artwork commissioned by musician Everlast. Sculpted and cast by Julie B of Pretty in Plastic, the limited edition run of 20 pieces will be available at the Singapore Toy, Game & Comic Convention (September 1-2 2012) for around $1,000.00 (I guess depending on the exchange rate that day).
