Back at New York Comic Con, myplasticheart debuted the latest figure from MPHLabs, the pint-sized Junior from Lou Pimentel. There hasn't been much said about the Cranston-based sofubi figure since then, but that changed last night with the announcement of a release party for Junior Hellfire. The new colorway should look familiar because it's based off of the larger resin Cranston's original Hellfire colorway, just shrunk down a bit to pocket-size. He still won't come too cheap, though; according to the official MPH blog post, he's priced at US$34.99, the same price as the Ghost Blossom Junior from NYCC. It makes me wonder if it'll be a similar edition size of figures to the Ghost Blossom variant, too.
Junior's second debut is happening on Friday, March 1, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Eastern at myplasticheart (210 Forsyth St., Lower East Side, Manhattan, New York City). Lou will be in attendance at the party as well, and the first 20 people who buy Junior Hellfire at the party will get a Junior tote bag as well. If you're not lucky enough to be one of those folks, the remaining totes will be US$5.99 each.
As the owner of the first Ghost Blossom Junior from NYCC, I can say I'm pretty happy about how the Hellfire edition turned out and I'm hoping I'll have the chance to grab one. We'll let you know any details about when Junior Hellfire might be on the myplasticheart online shop, though my best guess is sometime after the party.
