  • DesignerCon is coming closer and closer, but still we’re getting some last-minute announcements! This time it’s yet another Circus Posterus exclusive, though we still haven’t seen their mini Masao Skelves. Hmm, curious! In any case, this little plush by Amanda Louise Spayd will be topping off their lineup at booth #500. Thimbleberry is just the perfect combination of cute and creepy! We have no pricing right now, but this is a limited run of 25 so show up early if you want one of ’em. [via Circus Posterus]

  • DesignerCon is this weekend, but people are still making announcements for what they’ll be bringing! Circus Posterus already has the sofubi Stingy Jack and Calliope Jackalope coming, but apparently they wanted a vinyl trio as we’re also getting the first release of Chris Ryniak’s Stinky Ginger which is, you guessed it, an angry piece of ginger! And apparently a girl. This ‘Raw Stinky’ colorway is a lovely unpainted green shade. You know, while I love all of the artists at Circus Posterus I haven’t been really wowed by the sofubi line so far. I think some of the charm that’s in their resin pieces was somehow lost in the transition, though it’s hard to tell with Stinky Ginger since this is an unpainted release. This will be a run of 65 pieces retailing at $95 each (ouch!), and like the rest half will be at the event (booth #500) while the other half will be split between Tomenosuke and Stranger Factory.

  • Nathan Hamill already has a Strife & Sire colorway coming to DesignerCon, but it seems like he’ll have a second piece at the event as well! Kammu is a new figure, and this is the first colorway. This little warrior, who seems to be part-bunny/raccoon and part-plant, is exclusive to 3DRetro’s booth. He produced by Pretty in Plastic and like most of PiP’s figures he’s a bit on the pricey side at $75 for a 3.25″ tall figure. However, the design is definitely unique enough to warrant a purchase! I mean, he’s a little tiny warrior who is also the Protector of Fates. Just look at that adorable face! This monochrome “Gun Metal” edition is limited to only 30 pieces, and hopefully we’ll get some other colorways down the line.

  • DesignerCon is right around the corner, and as we’ve seen Circus Posterus has a ton of figures lined up for the event like the Toxic Marshmallow Stingy Jack. It seems like he won’t be alone though, as Kathie Olivas’ Calliope Jackalope is joining the DesignerCon lineup. This robin’s egg blue colorway is limited to 120 pieces and like Stingy Jack, only half of them will be at the convention. The other half will be split between Tomenosuke and Circus Posterus, meaning an online release for those of us not attending Dcon! She’ll retail for $95 and definitely isn’t the last announcement of Circus Posterus’: there are still those mini Skelves wandering around! [via Circus Posterus]

  • Last year, Kuso Vinyl made an adorable coin bank of their KusoPon mascot. Now they’re back with a second release, a tasty and delicious Ponburger! This tasty treat is 6″ of delicious vinyl burger goodness and will retail for only $25. What a bargain! It’ll debut at DesignerCon at Kuso Vinyl’s booth #330, and hopefully a few will make it online after the release. I think this would be a great addition to my collection! [via Spankystokes]

  • I really love the design of Nathan Hamill’s Bellicose Bunny. I own the first colorway, which was a GID SDCC release, and I plan on ordering the second one as soon as I have some extra money. And now it’s getting a 3rd colorway–that’s three in 5 months, in case you were counting, so these are coming out pretty fast! This is the “Stinker” edition, which features a smooth metallic paintjob. The bunny itself is silver and the carrot looks a bit shimmery! It will be released this Saturday at Noon Pacific at 3DRetro’s booth and Nathan will be signing. Hopefully this isn’t a crazy-limited version, because this is one bunny I’d really like to add to my collection! [via Nathan Hamill’s Facebook]

  • Super7 had a few pieces on hand for New York Comic Con, but not too many new offerings. Now that DesignerCon is rolling around, Super7 has decided to make up for that fact and has ensured that quite a few new exclusives will be on hand at DesignerCon and now we have pictures of the first two: The Green Hell Rose Vampire DX and the Mossy Rocks Burgerbuns. First up is the new Green Hell colorway of the Rose Vampire DX, which takes the iconic Green Hell colorway that is to this day the most sought after Monster Family Rose Vampire release colorway, and puts it on the new form factor. I love the green body, red head, and yellow and blue accents and this is still one of my all time favorite colorways of anything. Next up is Le Merde’s goofy cat Burgerbuns in a new Mossy Rocks colorway. I love the yellow of the body with the green hair and blue pants that look like jeans and this is a much more standard and appealing colorway than the more outlandish colorways we’ve received recently. If you want to pick either of these up they’ll be $65 each at Super7’s booth (#224) at DesignerCon, which begins this weekend. Also, for those on hand at the show, Josh Herbolsheimer, creator of the Rose Vampire, will be on hand on Saturday, November 5th from 12 pm – 1 pm for a signing and all Green Hell Rose Vampire DX purchases will come with a Rose Vampire mini print for free as well. I can’t wait to see what else will be on hand at the show, and as usual, all leftover pieces will be available online afterwards, so don’t sweat it if you’re like me and on the other coast and lusting for a Rose Vampire, we’ll have our chance too!
