New York based artist Mike "NEMO" Mendez continues his longstanding relationship with Tenacious Toys as they have just announced the next iteration of his tiki-themed Hello Kitty custom: "Hello Tiki II: Scary Love". According to NemO "This figure is a talisman that guards the holder against unwanted, bad or "scary" love." Hello Tiki II is about 4" tall and incorporates a variety of materials, a handmade grass skirt and a sculpted base. I really love this style, as it really brings back a nostalgic feel... and NemO does it with serious style! The piece is for sale HERE via the Tenacious Toys site for $95!

    The New York native Tenacious Toys brought an utter buttload of customs to NYCC. Cat Atomic and UNCLE Studio dominated the booth, while minifigures from Touma and a variety of other artists ensured there were designer toys to buy across price points.

    Tenacious Toys are brining airbrushed goodness to NYCC courtesy of UNCLE Studio. Cosmic ultralandscapes are comprised of stars, galaxies, and nebulae, and adorn a Calevarita, Mecha Dunny, Storntrooper, and Atropa Dunny.

    It's not easy to find Mechatro WeGo figures in the US. The official store only has a few items for sale and anything at Big Bad Toy Store sells out quickly. So Western fans assumed they'd be out of luck when they saw 1000toys' collaboration with Hatsune Miku.
