The Instinctoy Thread

Post by Yardarm51 » Mon Nov 17, 2008 10:15 am

Hey folks. A few people around the boards have asked me about a company called Instinctoy over here in Japan. They are a small company that basically produces just one figure in limited runs. I was fortunate enough to get some pics of a bunch of their prototype figures at an event held at Oneup here in Tokyo. They currently only have 4 production variants of this figure. Black (w. red or black eyes), GiD, Woodgrain and a recent Black with GiD accents. There is a short Instinctoy Youtube video explaining the background story for this particular character. Basically an innocent bear is attacked by a parasitic slime and turned into this wierd dripping mutant bear. The slime's face can still be seen on the bear's rear end. The bear is called "Inc". Without much further ado on to the pics.

The first three designs

From the Instinctoy Festa at Oneup...

The last one in this collection "Maziora Andromeda 2" is actually going into production in a 50 piece run. Unfortunately registration closed last night and I just saw the info this afternoon. Der...

However coming soon there will be a 5th regular variant released via Medicom as a part of their Project 1/6 series of figures. It will be called Bluewater and it comes with GiD highlights and the usual pair of footprints.

Image
Personally I think it looks stunning. The little keychain guys you see with him are called Liquids and they are the slime that originally infected the bear. They recently went on sale and are available in a variety of colours. Not sure if they are available in North America yet though. The Bluewater will ship in December but orders may be taken as soon as November 24th. Not 100% sure on that though.

I know at least a couple of people on here have these guys in their collections.

Awesome Yard! Great information you posted here! The Maziora Andromeda 2, Terminator, Ancient Treasure, Pink & clear purple are amazing! Actually all are and I want them all. LOL!! Thanks for wetting my appetite!

Here's some additional information. The Inc is designed by Hiroto Ohkubo. The black w/black eyes was a run of 100 w/ 15 outside of Japan. The GID was limited to 90. I am not sure of the run sizes of the black with red eyes and the "Wood" versions, but those were also limited. The recent black with GID accents was a run of 54. Below is a GID shot I took showing off the accents. Also notice the GID keychain (Liquid) which Yard talked about earlier. Many thanks to Yard to help me get these guys!

Love the fade of he Bluewater. And it has GID accents! \:D/

I'll try to keep this thread updated on the release info for the Bluewater and any other Instinctoys releases. His sales page has a ton of Liquid keychain variants and they generally go for around $8us. Three new GiD ones went up this week.

At this time, your best bet would be YJA. Tokyocube has been sold out of their stock for a little while now. The other is instinctoy.com but I just checked and they too are sold out unless you want some Liquids. They already stopped taking requests for the Maziora Andromeda 2.

New model coming down this weekend.

Image

As you can see the new one will be a graduated clear purple model called Nightdew and it will be released most likely this Friday via Medicom.

Image
The new packaging was chosen as the older packaging has gotten just too expensive to continue with. Too bad as I thought the old boxes with the magnetic flaps really complimented the quality of the fig itself.

Grrr.... Looks like their blog is killing hotlinks.

Instinctoy Nightdew

Also looks like it will be a fairly large run. One of the comments from the mod states the shop will have at least 100 for sale. If you are worried about getting one give me a PM and I'll try to hook people up.

More pics. This goes on sale on the Japanese website at 0:00 Sunday Japan Standard Time.

And just for Zinc...

The gang ready to go...

The run is 120. One piece per customer. Retail is ¥7800 for this badboy. They are pretty big and heavy so expect a fairly hefty shipping fee.
