Kidrobot has made some early announcement for drops on June 4th including a new Labbit mini-pack "Pride" and a new mini series from Junko Mizuno called "Pure Trance", which to me sounds like the title of a terrible Ministry of Sound album. As expected the Labbits are, well, Labbits with 'taches.
Junko's mini series is 14 chracters from her graphic novel Pure Trance and are blind boxed with 2 chase figures. I'd like to add more but TBH I don't find them that interesting as they look like a million other manga style characters and lack the twisted nature of her previous figs with KR.
The big release, for me anyway, is Dave White's take on the KR mascot - i'd seen an early pic and Dave mentioned it had been in the works "for years" in his interview with Clutter (see latest issue). Available in green and black there's 600 of each colour and both versions come with a helmet, bazooka and dove. Liking the battle worn effect on these.
