Brothers!

Friday, October 24th, 2008

I mentioned in my previous post about Icebat’s brother. Well, here they are together now!

BROTHERS! XD

These are both Uglycon versions, but from different years. Red Icebat was from Uglycon Tokyo 2008. The other one is Sleepy Chilly Icebat from Uglycon GR-San Francisco 2007.

They both look so adorable!  So soft and cuddly, too! XD

Uglycon Tokyo 2008 Plushies

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

Ok, I didn’t attend Uglycon Tokyo. I sure wish I was there to buy those acrylic paintings…Oh well…next time!

Got these cool event exclusive stuff from the store though.

*versions
Winged Black Abima (edition of 25) Uglycon Tokyo 2008 Exclusive
Seasick Babo (edition of 100) Uglycon Tokyo 2008 Exclusive
Red Icebat (edition of 25) Uglycon Tokyo 2008 Exclusive

Among the 3, I couldn’t decide what to get. I already had my eyes set on the Seasick Babo to pair up with my Little Sailor Babo. As for the Winged Abima, this might be the only chance to own him in his winged form. Icebat, on the other hand, is a favorite when it comes to special pieces, and his brother is already waiting for him. So, I ended up getting all 3!

T9G in Uglycon Tokyo

Sunday, October 19th, 2008

I actually find some of T9G’s works scary, but when I saw this, I fell in love with it immediately.

This is their version of Ice-bat. He has more teeth! XD

Hmm…I’m still puzzled as to why Ice-bat is a favorite when it comes to special pieces. Does he have some sort of special meaning?

Touma in Uglycon Tokyo

Saturday, October 18th, 2008

During Uglycon Tokyo, there were a lot of guest artists. Here’s one of the unique pieces there.

Done by Touma, I find this one really cute.  Touma is Japanese character designer who is renowned for his designs, including the wildly-popular Knuckle Bear, as well as Scuttle, Talons, Snout, Hell Hounds, BOO and many more.

I think that seated figure is made from resin. Touma’s version of Wage is really cute and amusing. The one in the painting is Moxy.

Uglycon Tokyo Today!

Argh! Uglycon Tokyo is today! @_@ I wonder what other great goodies are up for sale besides the Super Puncher Kaiju? (LOL! I like that picture above. David’s version of the fortune cat is cute. Hmm…I wonder if he’ll turn that into a Miao?)

Saw a picture of a new hand-painted Ice-bat Kaiju though. It was done by Koji Harmon and it’s 1 of a kind!!! >.< I wish I could own a special Uglydolls figure one of these days.

See that Ice-bat beauty? That’s the one of a kind piece!

Lonely Otaku Print

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

otakuprintweb Lonely Otaku will not be lonely anymore if you buy this limited print. If you’re  one of the lucky 50 owners if this print, be sure to always accompany Lonely Otaku in his exploits in finding Super Puncher figures!

Oops! Lonely Otaku already died, right? So, he will be the one to accompany you!!! XD

This print will be available at DOUBLE PUNCH in San Francisco during "Sun-Min + David Things" show.

Super Puncher Figure

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

Wooo! Here’s what the Super Puncher figure should look like. I WANT! XD

Hmm…this reminds me of David Horvath’s 2 Faced Dunny series, wherein you rotate the head 180 degrees to reveal a different form. Come to think of it, the concept is quite similar to Shurikenger (Green Ranger in Hurricanger) figure by Bandai. :D For those who have the Japanese version of the toy, you know what I’m talking about. Hehe.

Lookie, lookie! This is the "Yokai" mode:

This is the Super Puncher mode:
