Protect your garden from random kaiju with Gardenzilla

Garden decorations have needed to improve, in my opinion. What’s mostly out there? Gnomes, pink flamingos, creepy children, animals, a lot of boring stuff. So that’s why I welcome garden decorations that add a l...

Kibunadon rises from the depths to invade the U.S.
by Brian Szabelski

So we've had cat kaiju, and dog kaiju ... how about some fish kaiju? That's what's new from Max Toy Co., as they've put together the mighty Kibunadon, based off of Teresa Chiba's character. Teresa won the Kaiju Gals Design-a-Kaiju contest, and I have to say that Kibunadon fits in well with Konatsu's Negora and Shibara figures.

The first U.S. release of Kibunadon is a red and yellow colorway with some gray and green accents, and can be had in the Max Toy Co. shop for US$40 right now.

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.

Konatsu's kaiju creatures are back with new colorways photo
Konatsu's kaiju creatures are back with new colorways
by Brian Szabelski

Konatsu's Negora and Shibara sofubi figures have been favorites for some time now; I think it's just seeing pets transformed into gigantic kaiju that makes me smile a bit. But as with all sofubi, a collector's work is never done ... because the artists keep releasing more and more colorways. New variants of Shibara (glow in the dark and snow green) and Negora (glow in the dark and snow purple) have arrived, along with their 1.75-inch counterparts Mamera and Migora. The "green figures" seem more blue to me, though, don't you think?

The 3.75-inch Negora and Shibara figures are US$35, and Mamera and Migora will be US$12. You can find them at Rotofugi both in-store and online.

Super7's Foster gets ready for spring photo
Super7's Foster gets ready for spring
by Brian Szabelski

Super7 brings us a new colorway of my favorite kaiju cookie, Foster, just in time for spring. The bright green Spring Forward Foster is cast in a sparkly translucent vinyl, and features buttercup yellow and silver accents for his mouth, eyes and filling. My Foster obsession compels me to buy one, I think.

Spring Forward Foster arrives at noon Pacific Thursday (3 p.m. Eastern, 7 p.m. GMT) for US$25 each. It's not as much of an instant buy as the frost-colored Foster, but I'll likely still own one. How about you?
