Super7 is ready for WonderCon photo
Super7 is ready for WonderCon
by Kristina Pino

WonderCon at Anaheim is just around the corner. It's this weekend (Friday, April 18th - Sunday, April 20th), actually, and Super7 updated their blog with what they're taking to the show. Check them out at Booth #1453 if you're hitting the event, and maybe snag one of their three WonderCon exclusives.

In the gallery below, see a picture of their 9-inch tall Toxic Garbage Dump Fossilla, which will be going for US$95 each. "Cast in four color melted drip vinyl, blood red, putrid purple, shocking blue, and bile yellow, each monstrous monstrosity is a unique, one-of-a-kind cacophony of color!"

The other two exclusives are a Spring Training Pocket Baseball Boy (header, right), which is 3 inches tall and going for US$25 each, and a "Mellow Yellow" translucent colorway of their Pocket Rose Vampire (same price; header, left). Gotta love that sweet, sweet, translucent vinyl.

Kuso Vinyl has a trio of new releases for WonderCon photo
Kuso Vinyl has a trio of new releases for WonderCon
by Brian Szabelski

Kuso Vinyl will once again be at WonderCon Anaheim, and for this year's event, their exclusives come in a trio of choices. First, there's two Luckittypons for the event: the Inazuma version that looks like Pikachu, and the Tigerrhappy version that looks like ... well, a tiger. Both will be limited to 200 pieces at Kuso's booth (#1247) for US$10 each.

Want something a bit more game-related? There's also olive-colored variant of Dave Bondi's Akashi, whose Mario-styled look you've certainly seen before. Only 50 of these will be available at US$65 each, and if you stop by on Saturday between 1 p.m. and 2 p.m., Dave is doing a signing session.

Finally, if you want something that's darker, there's Darko, the Dragon Kid — a black, dragon-like Minicel with some attitude. Only 40 of these are going to be at the show, with a set number released each day, and they'll retail at US$20. I think it's the one I would want the most if I could be at the show; what about you?

Custom Delights: JFury's Ninja Pitbull

JFury has a new custom Dunny in his shop, a furious little ninja pitbull. He hasn't done any real sculptwork on the figure, instead wrapping the design around the Dunny's surface, but he still does resemble a little pitbull. You might not be able to tell from the karate gi and polesword that he's wielding, though! You can pick it up from JFury's shop for US$80.

ToyCon UK arrives on Saturday, and there's plenty of new things to gawk over before the show. So much so, in fact, that we haven't been able to keep up with it all! To make amends, we're rounding up as many of the ToyCon UK releases and news tidbits as we can, starting off with works from five of the artists in attendance.

Hit the jump to see some of what you'll find at ToyCon UK!
