The Tokyo speakeasy streetwear boutique The Park-Ing Ginza will be releasing three super limited Be@rbrick figures next month. Virgil Abloh, Jun Takahashi, and Hiroshi Fujiwara - the creator of the two-level basement store - have designed the trio, cast in white, black, and either off-white or GID plastic. These are guaranteed to be a pain to get a hold of. Getting into the Park-Ing...

Kidrobot have revealed a nondescript but intriguing image of a red lamé Dunny. All sorts of questions are running through my head. Is this part of a series? Will there be more colors? What size is it? Is this the realization of Frank Kozik's comment on wanting to do small runs of sofubi toys? Only time will tell, but I'm hoping for a full spectrum of glittery 3-inch Dunnys...

We've been keeping an eye on this somewhat mysterious project for a few months, and now we've finally got a full reveal. Mighty Jaxx have teamed up with HyperGrand to create a limited edition watch housed in a very cool polygonal cyclops skull. The orbital of the cranium reveals the watch face, which features black-on-black crossbones and minute markers and a black case. The hour and...

Nakanari's got some of the sharpest lines I've ever seen. #NoMaskingTape. It looks like he's working on an 8 inch custom Dunny this week and going by the hashtags on his Instagram post, the theme is modelled after the Anbu characters from the manga and anime Naruto.

For all of the GCI movies out there today, it's a relief that some OG animation is still being created. Kubo and the Two Strings uses traditional stop motion animation with supplementary CGI, and the behind-the-scenes video makes it pretty clear why studios opt for CGI these days.

So there are these big red balls in front of Target stores, which I assume are meant to stop soccer moms from careening their SUVs into the store when Oprah's latest book club pick comes out.
