    The 1950s were a special time for Ridley Township resident Bob Gould. He was attending Lycoming College in Williamsport and driving a Mr. Softee ice cream truck to make a few extra bucks. He met the love of his life, Mary, and they married in 1958.

    See below is the WIP(s) of KITSURA Header card art by Candie Bolton (which should REALLY be made a print too!), for her upcoming new sofubi from Max Toy Co! Mesmerized by the adorable chibi fox, and of course her art, I HAD to find out more about "Kitsura" and her genesis - presenting my first ever Q&A with Candie!

    TOYSREVIL: How does it feel to see your creation go into toy production?

    CANDIE BOLTON: Seeing Kitsura go into production is like seeing a childhood dream come true for me. I've always loved the lore around foxes in various cultures and especially in Japanese folklore. In Japan foxes are known as kitsune, they are magical creatures with the ability to transform and posses people (among many other things).

    TOYSREVIL: How did Kitsura come about? What was her genesis? And the genesis of your first product toy?

    CANDIE BOLTON: About a year ago I started collecting sofubi and I knew that someday I wanted to make my own fox toy. It seemed like a distant dream at the time, but just 6 months ago I was contacted by Max Toys about a collaboration and soon after that we were talking about toy designs.

    I have zero experience when it comes to designing toys so I was instructed to design whatever was aesthetically pleasing to me and let the sculptor figure out the rest.

    In March I made my first trip over to Japan and I had the opportunity to meet up with the sculptor Pico Pico at Daikaiju Salon in Nakano. We discussed some alterations that would need to be made in order to make my design work better with sofubi.

    Above-right: Pic of Toyokawa Inari Shrine when Candie visited Japan.
    Below-left: Fox sketches. And Rabbits!
    Below-right: Initial sketch of Kitsura by Candie for Max Toy Co.

    CANDIE BOLTON: The original design was in a sitting position, this was inspired by the fox statues in Inari shrines around Japan. However, the skinny legs and tail caused problems so that was changed to a standing position and the overall body was made more short and stubby (chibi style).

    Some other changes were made along the way. The original design had an egg shaped jewel in it's mouth, which is a very important object in the lore of kitsune, but I felt like it confused most people so this was switched out for the third eye. Kitsune don't have three eyes in Japanese lore, but I thought it more eloquently represented her intelligence and mystical qualities.

    CANDIE BOLTON: I couldn't be happier with how Kitsura has turned out. Pico Pico did a fantastic job at interpreting my design. I am very honored to have the opportunity to work with him and Mark Nagata of Max Toys.

    "WTF? Are You Kidding Me? ARE YOU FRICKKIN' KIDDING ME?" = was essentially my humble reaction to seeing images of this product online only a few moments ago (of course I cleaned up my language a bit here… *cough*) … I show you:

    But yes, all one needed were these words: "Death Match" and "1/6"! From toy-brand "TAOWAN" comes this 1/6th-scaled vehicle driven by masked racer "Frankenstein" - seen in the 2008 feature film "Death Race" also known as "Death Race 3000" - directed by Paul W.S. Anderson and starring Jason Statham (as "Jensen Ames" and eventually donning the mask himself as "Frankenstein").

    Don't believe me about the car likeness? Go Check Here :)

    Measuring 77cm long x 30cm wide x 22cm tall, local 1/6-specialists Forty42 has it listed for a SRP of SGD$500, launching 4th quarter 2014. (Email to pre-order before 2nd June). Now for more studio pictures to gawk at, while I go find my jaw dropped to the ground … are you kidding me? They even have "The Tombstone" as an accessory??!! *AWESOME*

    - Full metal
    - Dimensions: 77cm (L) x 30cm (W) x 22cm (H)
    - Full metal machine gun x2

  • Most of you know that the Tonner Convention began on Thursday, May 15. The opening event was an ice cream party Victorian style and there were some lovely dolls available to attendees. 
    The Victorian dresses and hats look beautiful.

    TonnerCon Exclusive: Victorian Holiday Matt – LE 100
     The Victorian Basic (below) was the souvenir. It uses the Kay sculpt on the Antoinette body. I'm not familiar with the Kay sculpt at all.

    Being a member of the wonderful doll community, I get to meet the most talented people. Recently, Bobby Jones emailed me to purchase something. I clicked on the link to his blog and discovered some very cool artwork and photos.

    The first that caught my eye was this group of JamieShow male dolls. I love the way they're dressed and posed. They are from left to right Tatum, Ty, Kyle and Alejandro. I like Alejandro's flocked head. I don't recall him being available this way.
