Plaseebo's latest release is called GNAW-X #5. A one of a kind vinyl figure featuring a Plaseebo "Gnaw" head on a Skull Head Butt "X" body, with red glass inset eyes. As with all of Plaseebo's customs, GNAW-X #5 features an internal motion activated LED, powered by replaceable batteries, to along with the colorful paint job. Priced at $350, the piece is signed and dated 2015 and is available now through Plaseebo's online shop.
Coarse Toys next release is called Permanent Guest. Initially being released for pre-order in 2 different versions, Endless Shadows and Promised Bliss, each version is limited to just 345 sets. Priced at HK$ 1540 (~$200), these sets are expected to ship in Autumn of 2015. It has been some time since Coarse had a non-Omen public release, choosing to catch up on shipping outstanding orders instead and collectors are chomping at the bit to pick up a piece that isn't an owl. With the Endless Shadows version featuring a black and gold color scheme, the Promised Bliss version will feature a more color palette closer to the Loser version of Coarse Figures. Measuring around 20" x 8" x 8", each set features 2 vinyl figures: a deceitful fish sitting in a bathtub and the innocent racoon pulling the tub along by a string. As with most Coarse releases, the story behind the figures is quite interesting. Be sure to head on over to Coarse Life and read up. While the Friends and Family pre-order has already occurred, the general Coarse HKG website release will take place on Thursday, June 17th, 2015 at 8:59am LA Time (or 11:59am in New York). Those interested in picking up either of these sets, be sure to be quick. For those who aren't a fan of either of the available color schemes, there will be a retail version available at a later date and most likely some special convention releases as well.
