Glow in the dark vinyl is like the "put a bird on it" of designer toys. Just add phosphorescence and boom, you've improved your toy. Studio Uamou have done just that with their follow-up to last fall's Ultra Uamou, replacing the gray base color with GID. Like the previous Ultra Uamou, this likely won't be sold outside of Japan, so we'll have to make due with the photos. If you happen to be in Japan, you can pick one up for ¥3,240 at the Tsuburaya Productions Creative Jam 50 event. Check out the gallery below and see more work from Studio Uamou here .

Need something kawaii to round out your shelf? These two new sofubi toys from Chima Group should do the trick. The husband and wife duo have produced previous super-cute kaiju like Amedas and Wool. Launching in May is Radio Monster Parabola, which is a dog wearing an Elizabethan collar (AKA dog cone) and has a lightning bolt for a tail. These pictures show off the test pull and future releases will be painted. Accompanying the sofubi pup is a tiny bird, tentatively named Tori (which is Japanese for "chicken"). This guy is so tiny you could probably fit him in your nose. Yes, that's a...
