We are excited to announce that APO (Apocolypse) Frogs by Korean design studio Twelvedot will be making a special appearance at our booth at NYCC this year for their US debut. Previously seen at STGCC in early September the brand new APO frogs are part of Twelvedot’s aftr. project which aims at reviewing our world and environment through one of the most fragile lifeforms on our planet, frogs. Through this they hope to raise awareness for endangered frogs and the devastating consequences of frog extinction. Standing at 5 inches tall and with 4 varieties available (Strawberry Banana Split, Pepto Black, Lime Black, and the brand new Pumpkin Pie colorway) we present a sampling of what this intriguing design team has to offer. APO Frogs will be available throughout NYCC at myplasticheart booth #113 from $65-$75 each.

We are happy to be collaborating with Japanese artist Konatsu once again on a special edition of her popular Negora figure for NYCC. This time we added a friend, Negora’s baby companion Migora! This year’s NYCC Exclusive Edition is a tribute to the most popular monster in Japanese pop culture and it’s trusty sidekick. Standing at 3.5 inches tall and cast in clear green sofubi with gold and silver accents Negora takes on a rather fierce demeanor this time around. Migora stands at a mere 1.75 inches but packs a big punch, featuring a clear grey body with gold and black accents and bright red eyes. Available in limited quantities during NYCC Negora and Migora will be at the myplasticheart booth #113 for $35 and $13 respectively.

myplasticheart will be working with the dynamic duo of plushPLAY & POPprolific on a new series of resin figures for New York Comic Con. Four years in the making from sketch to resin, Sextopus was inspired by cephalopods and the Behilith from Berserk. The concept has since evolved into a family of characters, each with a different number of appendages that range from 0 – 10 that make up the cast of characters in a counting book.
Hand sculpted, casted and painted by POPprolific with design and needle felted hats by plushPLAY, this edition of Sextopus is limited to a total of 5 pieces with 1 of 5 unique needle felt sculpted hats. Sextopus : Haberdashery Edition will be available during New York Comic Con at the myplasticheart booth #113 for $69 each.
