Shin Tanaka custom Gruntor series drops this Friday


Announcing a very special release on Tenacious Toys: a Shin Tanaka custom series on the Idolz Toys Gruntor platform! Shin customized about 2 dozen of these awesome 3-inch sculpts, and we are blessed with the opportunity to release them in our shop!

Each figure in this Shin Tanaka custom series is hand-painted in a metallic hue that varies across the figure and across the series, and further embellished with heart motif that becomes almost floral in the way it creeps across each figure. 

Every figure in this series is unique. The price will be $50 each and we will release these figures this Friday, April 27th at 10PM EST. Look for these figures to drop in our Idolz Toys section.




To learn more about Shin Tanaka, click here to see his website, or click here to read an interview in Format Magazine. Shin is a Japanese street artist who is perhaps best known for his work in the paper toy world, but he's also worked in vinyl toys and a variety of other categories of art.
