Toy2R has announced the development and release of JonPaul Kaiser's 5" Samurai Pumpkin Qee. This new scale Qee is the first in a new series of 5" Qee. With the fall holiday approaching and the dark, secretive nature of the Samurai, Toy2R thought it best to launch the series with a warrior perfectly suited for a mission as important as this.
Each 5" Mini Qee wil come packaged in a window box, designed by JonPaul Kaiser. Landing in September 2010, the Samurai Pumpkin Qee is currently available for wholesale pre-orders through Apex Trading.
Mimoco, renowned maker of MIMOBOT designer USB flash drives, will help SANRIO celebrate its 50th anniversary with the introduction of new SANRIO characters to the MIMOBOT collection.
Available now, Mimoco introduces SANRIO characters - My Melody, Chococat, and Tuxedo Sam as MIMOBOT flash drives. My Melody was born in the forest of Mari Land and is one of SANRIO’s most popular vintage characters. Also new to the line is Chococat, who gets his name from his chocolate-colored nose. This little boy cat has antenna whiskers, making him ultrasensitive to your most important data. Rounding out the new SANRIO MIMOBOTs available in August is TuxedoSam, the bow-tie wearing penguin who is fluent in both Penguinese and English.
You can pick these up in 2GB up to 16GB capacities. They run between $24.95 and $79.95 and come pre-loaded with extras.

In 2008, Matt Sharp worked alongside Lana Crooks creating the original Midwestern Ghosteeez plush. He provided her with drawings and she created the plush. Matt felt like he didn't have a hand in the creation of the plush, so this time around he designed a template asked Lana Crooks to construct and sew a blank Midwestern Ghosteeez canvas plush. He then took the blank plush, hand painting it, hand detailing it, hand attaching the wooden eyes and hand packaging it.
The first batch will be released in a pretty small run at Matt's October 15th solo show titled: The Benefits of Exhaustion at Proximity in Cleveland, OH. The show also features the launch of his first book also titled: "The Benefits of Exhaustion".
Each hand-painted canvas plush is roughly 9" x 3" featuring wooden eyes. They are individually bagged and signed on a header card. The initial edition size still TBD (under 30) but they will run $40 each.
To get on the list for when these are available for purchase send an email to either or both:
with a subject line of "Matthew Ryan Sharp solo show plush release"
The Midwestern Ghosteeez hand painted canvas plush is based on the paintings and illustrations of Matthew Ryan Sharp. The product template, packaging, final assembly and hand painting by Matthew Ryan Sharp. The sewing and plush form construction is by Lana Crooks.

No...that's not some fancy Photoshopping (well, adding NOW OPEN probably is) that is the one and only Uglydoll flag store in Seoul, Korea. Since the first Uglydoll was sewn in Seoul (you remember the story, right?), David and Sun-Min felt Seoul was the perfect place to open up an Uglydoll stand-alone shop.
"Much like how shops appear in our books, this store is located in a wedge under some stairs in one of the most popular areas in South Korea, Insadong."
While David will be revealing more photos on Friday, anyone in Seoul can go see the Uglydoll shop today.
