Last night I went to Lowbrow, my local toy store (and where I hold most of my art toy meetups) and one of the girls who owns the place pulls out a big box of Instinctoy stuff. My jaw hit the floor...

They are now carrying Instinctoy LOCALLY!!

I was so effing excited.. The wifey was too, which means. Now have unspoken permission!! ;)

So my daughter got some water colour pencils (never heard of them before) from my mother this past Christmas. She decided to try them out on the weekend. So she got out her stuff and planted herself in front of my Detolfs. This is what she did. One custom Inc by Leecifer and two Steinys by Kaijin.

I got lucky.
But with shipping cost and fees the price is around $350.
Anyway I've already paid it. Hope this Happy Bag worth it.

Not so sure what the current Inc and other toy boxes are like. The original boxes for the Incs were incredibly well made. I know they switched to thin plastic ones after the first 4-5 releases or something like that to keep costs down but if the current ones are anything like the originals it would be a crime to chuck them.

Instinctoy announced new Muckey - 10th "Illusion" edition.

Image

This is UV reactive version. The figure has a pearlescent white body coating
that turns to purple shade when exposed to a UV flashlight or the sun.

Check this video with changing color.

Figure has a fluorescent coating too, so it's a green glow-in-the-dark.

Image

Coming with a special UV blocking bag.

Image

As usually for Instinctoy it's available by lottery drawing.
Deadline is January 24th, 2016 at 6:59am Pacific time.
Winners will have to pay ¥12000 (approx. $102), plus shipping and fees.

I've held off Instinctoy stuff because there's so much, and hunting down pieces after the whole lottery thing looks to be a pain. But this looks too good to pass up—the clean design and multiple display options swung it for me. Hopefully it will be sharing the shelf with my Omen Fade soon :D

Got lucky also! Not too bad for my first two lottery entries :D. Can't wait to get it! Now the next challenge is to find room for it all. I still haven't unpacked the lucky box. :p The boxes for the figures look really nice though I can see why people would keep them. Has that premium look and feel. :badgrin:

Muckey Illusion just landed in NYC! Feels high-quality and I was surprised by the combination of different textures on the piece (smooth glassy eyes, rough body, flocked stomach and ears). I didn't realise the head came on a ball-joint, either. My one complaint is that the head isn't exactly flush with the body like it is in the promo pics, so a little bit of pink gum is visible. I'll get some photos up later on. Congrats to everyone else who bought this guy :D
