Swoon! Ever since the event was first teased, I've been wondering if Konatsu would be bringing any of her super cute watercolor illustrations to myplasticheart for her solo exhibition. Well, the above imagine indicates a firm "yes"! Be at the show as soon as it opens this Friday (9/16) at 7PM for your pick of artwork and merch. I'm probably not going to be able to get there until Saturday...

NYCC exclusive news continues to dribble in. Prepare for the flood. In the meantime, get pumped for a bunch of Kyle Kirwan's Bloom resin sculptures, which he'll be bringing to the con. Judging by the teaser image, a spectrum of colors across a range of variant sculpts will be available. And how cute is that little purple one with bat wings? Stay tuned for more details and more NYCC exclusives...

Case closed. It's not an Xmas Dunny. It's not getting additional paint applications. And it's not a 3 incher. We've used our detective skills to get to the bottom of the glittery Dunny mystery and have found that this will be a 5 inch Dunny called Chroma Dunny. This means Chroma Dunny will be the first non-artist Dunny to be part of the 5 inch series. Personally, I'd prefer a full-on rainbow...

It's less than a month until NYCC 2016, so you can bet a bunch of artists are hard at work customizing toys. Andrea Kang is one of them, and has just shared a sneak peek at one of her custom Trikkys that will be available at myplasticheart's booth. The toy features her big signature eyes, pouty kitten mouth, and a mostly monotone palette. I'm definitely excited to see what else Andrea Kang and...

Most Hello Kitty merch is understandably on the low end to keep prices down. But for those looking for something articulated and well-painted, Bandai will be releasing four Sanrio characters under their FiguartsZERO line in January.

Bob's Burgers definitely had a rough start. But a not-so-funny premier season eventually grew into a pretty hilarious cartoon of the modern age. Now the Fox animation is teaming up with Kidrobot for a 19-piece blindbox series and a Bad Tina medium figure.

The bad news? We'll have to wait until next spring to...

Oooo, shiny! The gold, silver, and bronze Uamous were a hit, but these new metallic colorways are even better. Gray, blue, silver, pink, and gold have been applied to the classic sofubi toy, while Fortune Uamou and Bastard also add a bronze finish to their lineup.

Sure, Squink created a production version of his Ken Dunny with Kidrobot. But the customs still have that special charm. And these two new commissions are no exception. Those lines are as super sharp as ever, but that blue really catches the eye. And that semi-gloss finish doesn't hurt. Here's to another five years of Ken!
