MPH's newest Junior is perfect for a Dark Night photo
MPH's newest Junior is perfect for a Dark Night
by Brian Szabelski

I still love myplasticheart and Lou Pimentel's Junior, and their newest colorway sure touches on my geeky side. Behold the Dark Night version of Junior ... and yes, it's a play on Batman's nickname of The Dark Knight. Even the colorway has that gray-tone skin color like Batman's suit, and the black wings match the color of his cowl and cape (at least in some of the variations of his outfit). I'm only disappointed that our little demon friend isn't wearing a little utility belt all his own ...

The Dark Night Junior arrives on Wednesday, March 19, for US$34.99 at MPH. I will, for sure, be getting one!

NYCC 2013: myplasticheart/MPH Labs
by Brian Szabelski

myplasticheart came to New York Comic Con with lots to show off, as they always seem to do. The biggest news from them is that there's apparently a Ghost Girl sofubi prototype in the works: following up on the awesome Junior sofubi they revealed last year, Matt Siren and myplasticheart are making a little version of the Ghost Girl vinyl figure. She has a hole on her head for exchanging out four different accessories, including a ribbon, flower and a skull.

Outside of that, some of the myplasticheart show exclusives and customs were on display, like J*RYU's Niddos; Leesasaur's knitted creations (one of which is a collab with Abe Lincoln Jr.); some work from Kelly Denato; and a beautiful little Unicorno called "More Love For You" by Jeremiah Ketner. Check out the gallery for photos from the show floor!

SDCC 2013: Dumbrella

Andrew Bell was once again hanging out at the Dumbrella booth for SDCC, and this year, he didn't have as much on the designer toy side. Both the exclusives were colorways of previously released pieces. One was a blue variant ...

kaNO's Bodega returns tonight at myplasticheart
by Brian Szabelski

kaNO's Bodega is back! The vinyl figure returns with a new edition and a slightly different look, along with two versions; one with kaNO's design and the other with a design by Toofly. Also new on the vinyl figure are the clearer body and a head that swivels.

Both editions are US$45 and are available starting tonight at myplasticheart (210 Forsyth St., Lower East Side, Manhattan, New York City). The signing party only goes until 9 p.m. so you might have to hurry to make it, but if you're interested in the figures, they'll also be available at retail sometime following tonight's event.

Reminder: Junior Hellfire ver. available now photo
Reminder: Junior Hellfire ver. available now
by Brian Szabelski

Just a friendly reminder: Lou Pimentel's new Junior Hellfire ver. is out in the wild following the release party, and you can bring him home. The 2.5-inch Junior is colored like its bigger resin brother, but this little dude is made of sofubi vinyl. 

Junior Hellfire is US$34.99 and he's listed as being "low stock" at the moment on myplasticheart. That's more or less why I've written the little reminder here. I've already gotten mine; go get yours!

Junior makes a grand debut at myplasticheart March 1 photo
Junior makes a grand debut at myplasticheart March 1
by Brian Szabelski

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.
