While a daily essential, cleaning one’s teeth isn’t exciting or even mildly interesting. Chris Ryniak’s new resin duo just might add a bit of cute fun to tooth care. The Twisty Toothpaste Turtball and Minty Mouthwash Smidgen celebrate keeping cavities away. The new Smigen is a translucent green while Turtball does his best toothpaste imitation with what appears to be a marbled blue design. As a silly thought, Turtball is all about food so far. Its adventures started with the Thanksgiving-themed Green Peas Turtball and now we have an after-meal version. The Twisty Toothpaste Turtball and Minty ..read more

Thai artist Tos Suntos brings his eye-catching Geecon character to life as a new polystone art toy from Mighty Jaxx. Based on one of the artist’s early images of the character, Geecon is seen in a seated pose, hands clasped together with one feet tucked underneath, creating the illusion of a third hand. Geecon is a prime example of Tos Suntos’ hallmark practice of reinterpreting Thai culture through the pop culture of his childhood. The character’s mask is a modern, sci-fi inspired take on Hanuman, the legendary warrior-general depicted in Thailand’s Ramakien epic. A closer look at Geecon’s fa ..read more

Dark Beats with the ST12 Turbo and ST1200 by Patrick Wong

by Jack Muramatsu
6d ago
Patrick Wong picks up the (electronic) Imperial drum beat once again with his recently released ST12 Turbo and ST1200 resin art toys. The clever concept blends old-school drum machines and the iconic Stormtrooper into a memorable, unexpected design. Based on the SP12 Turbo and SP1200 machines, each design pays homage to its inspiration from the colors, bright blue hues for the 12 Turbo and grays/blacks for the 1200, to the faders, keypads and yes, old-school floppy drive (5.25″!). The new releases follow Wong’s ST-60 (2017) which featured the flat key controls of the MPC-60. Editions of 24, th ..read more

The Art of Picking – Van Gogh by Po Yun Wang x Mighty Jaxx

‘Picky’ artist Po Yun Wang strikes again with his latest nose-picking take on a famous painter. The The Art of Picking – Van Gogh vinyl art toy from Mighty Jaxx features the celebrated painter of The Starry Night and Irises, minus his left ear (more on that in a second). As you might expect, the tortured artist is seen, in a quiet moment, picking his nose. Maybe we’re seeing this, but the shadow detailing on his jacket is somewhat reminiscent of the Starry Night brush strokes. As with Po Yun Wang’s previous figures—first his fast-food forward Picky Eaters and now The Art of Picking—he’s create ..read more
