DKE Toys will be bringing the Kiss My Ass 9-inch tall sofubi figure from David Flores x HellFire Canyon Club x BlackBook Toy to San Diego Comic Con 2015 Booth #5045. This version is an edition of 25 pieces. You'll be able to pick one up for $150.00 at the show.
3DRetro has announced the new vinyl figure from artist Juan Muniz Felipe. The Felipe vinyl figure is brought to life from the artist's "Uh Oh" painting. It features five multi-color balloons and stands in at 9.5-inches in height.
Juan states: “We often wear a second skin in daily life or at work and the ‘skin’ doesn’t reveal much of our true self. The ‘mask’ I draw is a blank stare and depending on the situation, can convey humor, doubt or irony. There is Felipe, dragging his bleeding heart, looking back to ensure it’s still there as if it’s a security blanket. There is Felipe, sitting on a chunk of earth with an anvil tied to his fishing pole. And there is Felipe, looking down at the bullet that moments ago pierced him, then popped out his back, walked around to the front and held up a sign that reads, “I’m sorry.”
San Diego Comic Con attendees will be able to purchase Felipe for the first time at the 3DRetro/DKE Booth #5045. The figure will be limited to a run of 200 pieces worldwide. It will retail for $55.00. Also, Juan will be in attendance to sign figures, prints and other special items for fans on July 10th 2015 from 3PM to 4PM and again July 11th 2015 from 1PM to 2PM .

To say I was disappointed when NBC announced that Season 3 would be the last for Hannibal on the network would be an understatement. The show is a visual joy...and most of that is thanks to the work of showrunner/creator/producer/Übermensch Bryan Fuller.
Since Funko has already blessed Fannibals with several Hannibal Pop! figures, they're going to cap things off with a Bryan Fuller Pop! figure with an eerie resemblance to Hannibal Lector. Alas, this Pop! will only be available at San Diego Comic Con 2015 and the Funko Booth. The exclusive Pop! comes in a run of 144 pieces and will be available during Bryan Fuller's signing at the booth on Friday, July 10th 2015 at 2PM (line starts to form at 1PM). This will be the only time you can purchase one...so get me one if you get a chance.
Funko has announced a new figure series - the Supernatural Mystery Minis. Based on characters from the hit CW television series, the blind boxed Mystery Minis feature Sam, Dean, Castiel and even a LARPing Charlie. Look for them to hit your favorite collectible shops in July 2015.
Another one of independent art toys that DKE Toys will have at San Diego Comic Con 2015 is the Django Uncloned Heirloom Edition by Good For You Toys x Robin VanValkenburgh.

Kidrobot and Junko Mizuno have revealed the long awaited Violet Soda Lady 8-inch Dunny with a special San Diego Comic Con Exclusive colorway, Berry Chocolate Lady. The regular edition will be released later in July, and both versions will sell for $100.00 each.
"The Purple Soda Girl Dunny that I designed in 2012 was very hard to create, so I'm really happy & excited that her big sisters, Violet Soda Lady and Berry Chocolate Lady, are coming out! I hope they will find a lot of happy owners! I think of my Purple Soda Girl Dunny from 2012 as a daughter of Kuro Megami that I designed for Kidrobot Black Series. When I designed her, I was using the photos I took of old god and goddess statues at Asian Art Museum as reference. So Kuro Megami is kind of like a goddess representing my art. Purple Soda Girl and the two new 8” Dunny’s are all her daughters who have the same goddess-like feeling." said Junko Mizuno on her inspiration for creating Violet Soda Lady and Berry Chocolate Lady.
Junk Mizuno will be signing at Kidrobot’s San Diego Comic Con booth #5645 on Thursday, July 9th 2015 from 1PM to 3PM and Friday, July 10th 2015 from 1PM to 3PM.
