So this has been a long time coming. Way back in 2007 (two years into this site's existence), I reported on how Plaseebo's Legend of Sum prototype was displayed at the Toy Tokyo booth at San Diego Comic Con. At that point in time...I couldn't wait to check it out. Unfortunately, things happen. But this might be the longest time between seeing a prototype and having a release that I have witnessed in this business. And, thankfully, collectors and fans of artist Bob Conge (I consider myself one of each) will be very happy.
The Plaseebo "SUM" Creature will be the first vinyl figure to be created by the joint forces of Planet-X and Plaseebo. The piece will feature an internal color-changing LED unit (for multiple colors). The first release of the Plaseebo “SUM” creature in vinyl will be this Saturday, May 5th 2018, in Japan at the MANDARAKE "Indy Sofubi Rally”.
The finalists for the 8th Annual Designer Toy Awards have been announced and Public Voting has begun. I went - since I'm part of the illustrious "Industry Judging Panel" - and voted for a bunch of artists and designs I wasn't really familiar with. If you're an old-school designer or artist, it's likely I voted for you. The public categories are also open. So you can go cast your votes until Monday May 7th 2018 at Noon ET. I really don't have any recommendations or suggestions for ya...

Taylored Curiosities has released her latest custom - this time it’s a custom Foomi. Loire is a customised 2.5” Foomi from Kidrobot. Sculpted with clay and painted, his Worry Bean companion is made of clay and has matching barnacles. You can pick it up now for £60.00 (about $83).
Loire (pronounced ‘low-Ahr’) is an anxious beast. His friends are always getting on at him to be happier and to cheer up, but his natural disposition is to worry and fret. He’s made a new friend; a Worry Bean. They go everywhere together now and Loire is starting to feel a bit more relaxed.
