Tanuki from Switcheroo and Amanda Visell

Amanda Visell and Switcheroo have released the Tanuki resin figure. Based on an actual animal that's often seen in Japanese folklore, this resin version measures 6.75 inches in height. It's limited to a run of 15 pieces, and you can pick one up for $250.00. The artist describes the piece as follows:

If you guys havent met before Tanuki is a chubby Raccoon Dog with huge balls. His current occupation seems to be loitering outside of Japanese hang outs with a bottle of sake and some IOUs. He has a super long history that includes using his balls for shelter and as weapons.

Mike Slobot x Anakin present the AnakinBots

Mike Slobot and the band Anakin present the "AnakinBots", handmade collectible robot sculptures created by artist Mike Slobot and inspired by the music of Anakin. Each individual bot within this limited edition set represents one specific album of four released by the band.
The nexus for these Slobots came from a mutual love of synthesizers, science fiction, space and most importantly robots.

These Slobots are one of a kind, hand created collectibles, reserved to 5 pieces in each colorway. They measure 4 inches tall, have glow in the dark eyes and wires, and each set comes with 4 limited edition Anakin releases complete with lyrics. Individual bots come in their own protective display case with custom numbered cards. Various hand-picked lyrics by Anakin are printed within the product case cards to keep each piece truly custom and unique.

You can pick up these sets at slobots.chancellorcreative.com for $385.00 each.
