Shawnimals’ Pocket Scrub


The Shawnimals folks are set to release the newest in their on-going quarterly special releases - the Pocket Scrub.

This all-new soap-shaped addition to the Pocket Plush family is boxed with a little window to the world for maximum cuteness not to mention life-giving air, while a unique name inside every box gives this
new rectangular friend even more personality.

The Pocket Scrub is limited to 300 pieces with an MSRP of $15 each. They'll be made available beginning Wednesday, July 1st at 10:00am CDT via the Shawnimals online store.


No Future Companion


As with every figure released by KAWS, the No Future Companion - Black Chrome Version quickly sold out. The metal figure featuring a chrome finish (limited edition of 500 pieces) sold for $980 each. That's not a typo...$980 for the 12.5" tall figure...and it sold out in less than a day. The piece was produced by Medicom and a joint project from KAWS and Hajime Sorayama.

SDCC Exclusive Mallows


We have photos of the SDCC Exclusive Mallows from Shocker Toys. If you're wondering why they are called might want to check out their marshmallow shaped noggin. These are the new designer toy line that's been introduced by the folks at Shocker Toys.


The trio of exclusives include The Phantom, Dr. Rockso (Metalocalypse) and the SDCC Art Mallow. The Phantom and Dr. Rockso are limited to 500 pieces, while the SDCC Art figure is limited to 250. Out of the three, I think I like the SDCC Art figure the most. It'll be a great little momento to commemorate another Comic Con.


Baseman Vacuum-Form Masks


Gary Baseman is set to release a limited edition run of vacuum-form masks, all hand painted, featuring the Enlightened Chou, the central figure in Baseman’s most recent exhibition La Noche de la Fusion at Corey Helford Gallery. They'll only be available via Baseman's website on Wednesday July 1st at 10AM Pacific time.

The available colors include: purple, black, gold, pink, blue, off-white and silver.

Each mask measures 10"x10" and will run $75 unsigned or $90 signed by the artist (includes shipping for domestic orders).
