Shawnimals – Forest Spirit Wee Ninja

with one comment

Shawnimals and Noon Solar have teamed up to produce a 100% organic, sustainable, and handmade Forest Spirit Wee Ninja in celebration of Earth Day 2009. Each and every component that went into the making of this all-new plush was chosen with the environment in mind.




This all natural tree hugging Forest Spirit ninja will be available on April 22nd, Earth Day, and is limited to only 100 peices.

I’ve posted Shawnimals stuff plenty on here and if you still don’t get them by now, I’m sad. They’ve created an awesome brand as well as an entire world of characters will entire back stories, and I love it.

I’ve never heard of Noon Solar before seeing this but looking at their site they actually make solar power bags where you can charge your phone or iPod right inside. Handy and innovative I must say.

Daft Punk 400% Be@rbrick Set

with one comment

A Daft Punk pair of Be@rbricks has just come out at Colette.
A HUGE release (no pun intended) from Medicom as this is the 1st ever set of 400% Be@rbricks.




Wish these weren’t going for $186US but have to say I’m a big fan of these. One year I swear I will be 1/2 of Daft Punk for Halloween, crazy helmets included.

Hurry and grab em now at Colette!

MIchael Lau – CS Booth 16 "Gardener Still"

leave a comment »

Another season and another new release of toys from celebrated Hong Kong artist Michael Lau‘s Crazy Smiles.

On March 21st Michael Lau’s Crazy Smiles will release a whole new collection of toys that are still unknown. All we have as a preview are some promo fliers like the Metal Gear Solid inspired one above, so a possible Michael Lau x Solid Snake toy just might emerge.

If you are in Hong Kong, try to make it out to the Michael Gallery for this release, and you might just want to get there a little early. The reselling game in HK is something serious.

Ninjatown Micro Plush Series 1.5 & 2 by Shawnimals

leave a comment »

Ridiculous plush toy maker Shawnimals will soon be releasing series 1.5 and 2 straight from Ninjatown!



If you’re familiar with Shawnimals, there are a bunch of regulars here from the original set, some from the video game, and even a few that I have never seen before. Bad guys, ninjas, Mayor Ninja, Old Master Ninja, ninja poo, and way more.

I’ve been a huge fan of Shawnimals since way before they even sold online but now you can grab everything straight from their site. So go buy now! I mean where else can you get a plush moustache, pork dumpling, lint, and poo dollops?!? and for only $6!

Oh and if you are on twitter be sure to follow @shawnimals.
