SNEAK PEEK: DeKorner's Kookie No Good Sofubi by Scott Tolleson

Normally, Fortune Cookies are a perfect way to finish a good meal at a Chinese Restaurant -- a crunchy treat with a happy and hopeful message.  Forget all that. Kookie No Good is a wayward, sad, mischievous fortune cookie or perhaps a 'misfortune' cookie.  Whether he is upset at the world or just upset that he's food, he's certainly not looking to bring you good fortune.   

Starting with De Korner owner Kevin Cao's desire to make a 'bad fortune cookie' toy, Kookie No Good was designed by prolific artist Scott Tolleson. The appeal of this adorably upset sofubi toy lies in his priceless expression with furrowed brow, and pursed lips. The Kookie No Good 2014 retailer edition features a cookie color base vinyl with red, black, pink and white sprays. Manufactured in Japan, the figure stands 3.5" and is articulated smoothly at the neck.

As always, hit me up if you are interested in this piece. They retail for $35 each.

Godot Cosmonaut by Sergey Safonov up for preorder now on his site

Sergey Savonov's Godot Cosmonaut custom set is available for preorder now on his website here.

Here's what Sergey shared with us:
April 12 is a Cosmonautics day in dedication of the first manned space flight made on April 12, 1961. As you remember, in 2011 we did a Kickstarter campaign to celebrate 50 years of Gagarin's flight and produced a Luno figure. So let's keep the tradition alive.

This year, special holiday release is a Godot Cosmonaut with his little helping Rover friend. If you're attending to ToyCon UK today, you can see them in person at Fugi.me booth.

This year I am not at the Con, but you can see my toys and ARTRANSMITTE booth and special secret release at Taylored Curiosities stand.

Godot Cosmonaut is the most complicated release to date, it's made of 26 parts and three different plastic materials. I'll be making these to order, so If you want to add this set to your collection, please preorder yours.

Thank you for your support and Happy Cosmonautics day!
