This Week's Stuff

GOOD EVENING! Well,'s evening for me - who knows where you are!

This week sees the release of two most excellent runs of toys - both of which are collaborations that I've been excited about for some time!

1) RAMPAGE x Blurble "Pretty Ugly Unicorns"! Mike (Blurble) painted up a sweet little run of Ugly Unicorns last week. He's releaseing them in his on-line shop this Thursday at 12 noon PST. They were painted using all sorts of color change and metallic paints from Monster Kolor! I, personally cann't wait to get my hands on one.

Blurble X Rampage toys

Here are pics on Blurble's Flickr:

And Blurble's BigCartel:

2) RAMPAGE x Splurrt "Guardian Daemon Cadaver Kids"!!! SOOO Psyched for this batch of vinyl! I'm still working on these dudes, but here's the info:

What: Run of 10 Cadaver Kids - painted with a brain-melting araay of sprays and brush-work. I'll have these done by Wednesday (Japan Time).

When: Releasing in my BigCartel on Friday morning (Japan time - which will be night time on Thursday in the states) Teaser!


Next week will see yet another really exciting release! Stay Tuned!

Cute Attack!

Hey there all you super keen people ;-)
Wow! So much going on now - I do't know where to start. How about with this Friday's release in zee shoppe!
For Superfestival I painted up a run of Kikkake's cute little Bears (Kuma-chan). They all departed for new homes at the event! However, at Sufes I also recieved more bears and more elephants from Kikkake, and I set to work on them over the past week. So, this Friday will see a nice sized drop of painted and blank Zou-chan (elephants) and Kuma-chan (bears)!
Here's what will be up in the shop this Friday:
"Starburst Clan Zou-chan" - run of 10 - lots of sprays and details on turquoise vinyl
"Strawberry Ears Kuma-chan" - made to order. I only have 10 bears, so I'm offering the choice of one painted OR one blank figure

Here's what the blank little guys look like ^_^

These will all appear sometime in the morning hours (US time) this Friday (1/20/2012). I have yet ANOTHER release panned for next week, and the week after that! Teasers coming soon ;)

Post-Sufes 58

To all who followed on twitter and instagram - and especially to all who attended Superfestival 58 - THANK YOU! The event was a great success for RAMPAGE TOYS, and I believe it was one of the most well attended and altogether successful SF's in a while! Indy Sofubi IS NOT DEAD, and people in Japan seem to be gaining more and more interest in the creations of Japanese and non-Japanese Indy sofubi makers alike. This show made me really excited for 2012 - I'm already looking forward to the next Sufes in April!

below are a few shots of the RAMPAGE TOYS table, and some other stuff. There are bundles of pictures on my Flickr as well as a VERY VERY in depth report of the event over on my Buddy Andy's Blog (Kaiju Korner). Andy did such a thorough job of covering the event - it would be silly for me to attempt to do the same! Here are some of my pics:

"Zee Rampage Booss"
Ilanena-san with some vintage Starwars awesomeness (in front of his table)
Some Card-Monster and Ugly Unicorn Comradery

Ilanena Custom UU's! A taste of the (maybe near, maybe distant) future!

All of the remaining items from the show (Ugly Unicorns, Collab stuff, etc.), will be in the shop tomorrow, January 11th - early morning time in America - late night time in Japan ;-)

Here's the shop:

Next up - more Kikkake Elephants and Bears, and then some REALLY exciting stuff! Who likes things that glow in the dark - I DO!
