Get a closer look at Furry Feline Creatives' WonderCon exclusives

Earlier this month, Alvin and Cheri Ong of Furry Feline Creatives teased fans with a short video hinting at their exclusive plushes which will be available for purchase at this week's WonderCon in Anaheim, California. The four plushes featured in their con-exclusive "Walking like Dead" line include the two cats, Purridge and Ringo, along with Chef Tako the octopus and Piga the pig. The teaser video portrayed the characters as drooling, dirty and disheveled but viewers, at the time, were not given the whole story nor a good look at the plushes.

However, the time has come to reveal those secrets. I would sum up these backstories for you but I couldn't do a better job then the provided press release:

  • Purridge needs her coffee fix...RIGHT NOW.  There's a  lot of work to be done. Must work... Must finish work.
  • Chef Tako was so busy preparing at the kitchen, he got thirsty and mistakenly took the red bottle instead of the bottled water.
  • Ringo has been playing video games, all day, all night, non stop.
  • Piga was very tired, slept with a mudpack on and totally forgot to remove it the next day.

The Purridge, Chef Tako, and Ringo plushes come with removable accessories (a plush coffee cup, plush red hot sauce bottle, and plush controller, respectively). Each of the characters will be limited to eight pieces, costing US$50. All of these plushes measure 12 inches-tall and are handmade by Cheri. They are made of fleece and felt and feature signed and numbered hangtags. Attendees can purchase them over at Furry Feline Creative's booth #1161 at WonderCon.

WonderCon has Furry Feline Creatives 'Walking like Dead'
by Natalie Kipper

This coming WonderCon, Alvin and Cheri Ong of Furry Feline Creatives will place four of their cuddly critters into gritty scenarios for our amusement. All told, staying up all night playing video games or oversleeping with a mudpack on isn't exactly on par with a zombie infestation but that is the premise for their con-exclusive "Walking like Dead" line. In the teaser video, we can spot familiar faces like the cats, Purridge and Ringo along with their buddies, Piga the pig and Chef Tako the octopus but they don't quite look their happy, sunny selves. Something's off. One has eye bags. Another is drooling. And well, poor Piga seems to be stuck with that mudpack. Maybe a hug will make them feel better?

WonderCon attendees will be able to rescue these plushes at Furry Feline Creatives' booth #1161. Prices and edition sizes haven't been revealed yet. But expect these to be very limited edition. Each one is handmade by Cheri Ong.

by Brian Szabelski

If you're a fan of The Disarticulators' Madball of Death, but perhaps would like a little more shine to your collectible, then you're in luck. Coming on Wednesday will be a glow-in-the-dark variant of the Madball of Death. Same 1980s inspiration, same toothy sculpt with a parasite inside. Just a little more scary when you see it glowing at 3 a.m. from your shelf.

The glow-in-the-dark Madball of Death is limited to a run of 10 pieces, each US$50 plus shipping in the Man-E-Toys store. They'll arrive at 9 p.m. London time (5 p.m. Eastern, 1 p.m. Pacific), and some additional surprises will be in the store at the same time. What, exactly, we don't know (or it wouldn't be a surprise), so you'll have to check it out for yourself!

House of Darkly announces WonderCon 2014 exclusive plush
by Natalie Kipper

WonderCon in Anaheim, California is coming up in less than a month and one of the burning questions on attendees' minds is, "what about the exclusives?" Thankfully, House of Darkly has given us the heads-up in regards to her con-exclusive. Say hello to Wonder-Kale, the Caped Superfood. Limited to five plushes, this veggie hero features a wired cape and movable arms, allowing for all sorts of dramatic poses. Each 10-inch tall piece is made from Minky fabric with felt details and a polyester cape. Wonder-Kale will cost US$50 and be available at House of Darkly's booth #1155.

And if you are attending Emerald City Comic Con this weekend, you will definitely want to head over to booth #1304 where House of Darkly's con-exclusive Hug-a-Mug plushes will be available for purchase. Out of the five piece edition, two will be in Electric Green and the other three will be in Emerald Green. Both will have "creamer art" appliquéd on their tops and stand six-inches tall. Each Hug-a-Mug will cost US$60. 

You can get a better look at the Wonder-Kale and Hug-a-Mug plushes in the gallery.

An exclusive Astrolapin touches down at Rotofugi photo
An exclusive Astrolapin touches down at Rotofugi
by Brian Szabelski

Mr. Clement's work is coming to Rotofugi for a May exhibition, and to celebrate, he's released a special variant of his Astrolapin figure. The Rotofugi variant is in a nice cherry red color, and he carries a map of Chicago in his hands, perhaps trying to find Rotofugi? Pssst, it's on Lincoln Avenue ...

Need your little rabbit astronaut fix? He's available right now from Rotofugi, limited to a run of 50 pieces and one per customer and/or household, for US$175 each. It's really tempting to pick one up, even at that price ... what do you think?

by Natalie Kipper

Yesterday, to the delight of pony collectors across the interwebs, WeLoveFine revealed Future Twilight, their latest My Little Pony vinyl figure. Unlike the company's previous releases, with each character having multiple colorways, Future Twilight will not have variant releases. She also appears to be more stylized than DJ Pon-3 and Derpy Hooves (err, I mean "Bubble Muffin"), with her battle-worn jumpsuit and the base's spiraled energy effects. The torn Equestrian flag is a cool touch as well.

Future Twilight is limited to 2400 pieces in the first edition (there will be a second edition, as well). The first print is expected to ship late June 2014, with the second following it in late October 2014. She is available to pre-order now for US$25.

Furry Feline Creatives crosses the pond with Sir Ringo plush
by Natalie Kipper

Furry Feline Creatives' lovable, colorful friends will be making their way to London's premier toy expo, ToyCon UK, thanks to a collaboration with The Toy Chronicle. To mark the momentous occasion, Alvin and Cheri Ong created a limited edition Sir Ringo plush. This special handmade toy is decked out with a Union Jack on his frontside and a cape on his shoulders. He stands 12-inches tall and costs £30 each.

While Sir Ringo is technically a ToyCon UK exclusive, you can pre-order one for yourself from The Toy Chronicle's online store. Pre-orders will remain open until March 9, so don't forget to get your order in. He'll be shipped out in six to eight weeks. Alternatively, you can pick your order up at The Toy Chronicle's ToyCon UK booth. Or, if you want to gamble, you try to purchase Sir Ringo at the con. It should be noted that only a very limited amount will be stocked at the booth (aside from pre-orders).
