Miami artist Chris Pyrate is following up his Three Eyed Kaiju designer toy with Luck Katju, an amalgum of symbols for prosperity and Japanese kaiju. "The inspiration behind the Lucky Katju stems from two main sources: my love for old school Kaiju films and Manekki-Neko (A.K.A. Lucky Cats). When I first came up with the idea, I was really into studying different...

Ah, such soothing colors. This might be my favorite Uamou series since the Tengu and Cobalt series, which had an amazing matte finish. These ones, though, feature calming gradients painted by legendary airbrush artist, Goto-san.

I don't think I need to explain why Coarse Toys have garnered a cult following. And the German duo's illustrations are just as alluring as their toys. (I have a postcard flyer featuring their raccoon character taped to my wall.)

NYCC 2016 Photo Recap: Part 13 | DTA Dunny Show

As usual, the Clutter booth in The Block was busy at this year's New York Comic Con. When fans weren't over at the booth to buy exclusives and talk toys, they were checking out the DTA Dunny Show.

Bubi Au Yeung is joining Shlap's stable of artists! Now along with Shawnimals, Lunartik, and a bunch of others, you can add some of Bubi's art to your iMessages. This batch is all about pandas. And since pandas are the best animals, I'm OK with that. For less than a dollar, you get 16 Bubi pandas, and if these take off, hopefully we'll get some Treeson stickers as well....

Lunartik's contribution to the socially acceptable pagan ritual is a glow-in-the-dark Mini Tea who looks like he's just seen a ghost.
