Jon-Paul Kaiser Samurai Pumpkin Qee by Toy2R

The warrior code, mysterious as it is dangerous, has exisited for thousands of years. One select group of warriors took that code to greater levels and had rich history of their exploits flourish around the globe...The Samurai.

Toy2R is proud to announce the development and release of Jon-Paul Kaiser's 5 Inch Samurai Pumpkin Qee. This new scale of Qee is the first in a new series of 5 inch Qees coming soon from Toy2R. With the fall holiday approaching and the dark, and the secretive nature of the Samurai, Toy2R thought it best to launch the series with a warrior perfectly suited for a mission as important as this.

Each 5" Mini Qee will come packaged in a window box, designed by Jon-Paul Kaiser, to show off the beauty of his design. Landing next month, the Samurai Pumpkin Qee will be availble here at Tenacious Toys. Stay tuned for more info like pricing & arrival dates.

The second stop on the worldwide journey of JPK & Toy2R....come along, if you dare.

David Choe Munko vinyl toys by Upper Playground


Upper Playground has teamed up with Japan’s Good Smile Company to become the official distributor for David Choe’s “Munko” Vinyl Figures. The toys were initially seen as simple sketches on David's blog, and now following the premiere of the physical Munko toys at San Diego Comic Con in Giant Robot's booth, Upper Playground is the exclusive wholesaler and distributor for the line of figures.
 
Upper Playground has continually been impressed not only by Good Smile Company's detail and intricacy in their vinyl figures, but also by the innovativeness of their other ventures, and are very excited to begin this partnership between their companies.  The "Munko" line of figures comes in three unique sculpts: Munko, Munkosaur, and Munkette.  Munko, is offered in 3 colors and 2 extremely realistic textures.  Munkosaur comes in 3 color ways with one in a concrete texture.  And Munkette (above) comes in 3 unique color ways.
 
The figures are available in a set of all 12 toys and individually by blind-box. We can get them so please email us if you are interested!
