We featured these figures before when they were first announced, but now Coolrain and Mindstyle have whittled down their selection to the figures that will be in the first series. NBA players included in the series include: Kobe Bryant, Derek Rose, Dwayne Wade, Kevin Garnett & Carmello Anthony. For me these Michae Lau-esque figures aren't hitting the amazing highs of Coolrains 12" figures, in fact i don't really see much similarity between his 12" styled figures and these.

Presumably there are Home and Away versions of these figures as in the preview shots of the series from last year we can see Home versions of Garnett and an away Bryant! Also missing from this series lineup are the rather aneimic looking Steve Nash, Dirk Nowitzki and Manu Ginobili (ok so i did have to look that last one up - but thats only cos Spurs suck, whatever country you're in!)

Personally i will be saving for either one of the Michael Lau Jordan figures or a Coolrain 12" figure.

    While Toy Tokyo mostly clogged The Block with lines for the latest cookie cutter Fuko Pop! figure, they did at least bring four amazing pieces to NYCC.

    Well that escalated quickly. Earlier this week we got a few sneak previews of a collaboration between Converse and Coolrain Lee, so I assumed the street date was at least a few month out. Nope!

    "Another babka?" Yup, apparently there will be a series of paired Converse sneakers and Coolrain Lee figures.
