As we creep towards the end of 2016 its time for another top ten of the year. This time concentrating on Designer Toys. Many of which are now sold out and hard to come by, but where I can I will link to sites where you can purchase. Many of this years best drops are rereleases of classic designs, lets hope this is a growing trend. I present to you my Top Ten Designer Toys of the year 2016….
The Odd Ones 3" Dunny Series
After being out of love with Kidrobot for many years, they seem to be back with a bang! One of the best looking Dunny series in a long time, can’t wait to grab a few of these myself.
Rumpus - Scribe
Originally released back in 2010 as part of The Resound Field Guide series with Cardboard Spaceship, this is one of my all time favourite designs. A masterpiece by Scribe which you now have a second chance to own.
1000% Bearbrick - Krusty the Clown
Lets face it 1000% Be@rbricks look super cool with pretty much any design printed on them. However this isn’t just any design, this is everyones favourite cartoon clown Krusty!
Mishka 3" Blind Box Dunny Series
Another fantastic Dunny series from Kidrobot. Some really outstanding designs in this Mishka series. Eyeballs everywhere!!
BE@RBRICK Pushead 400%
A beautifully subtle design by Pushead, which partners up perfectly with his Be@rbrick release from last year. Another one which will rapidly be getting added to my collection. The design was achieved by using a unique water transfer print method making each Be@rbrick unique. Sold in a set containing a 100% and 400% version.
Quiccs × Devil Toys's 1:6th Scale TEQ63 Action Figure
A meticulously executed 1/6 action figure, featuring the classic TEQ63 design by QUICCS. Complete with robot dog and Folding Pocket Gun (also Fully Articulated).
ThreeA Die Antwoord 3ART ZEF SET 1/6TH
The love affair between Ashley Wood and Die Antwoord continues with this superb box set of Ninja and Yolandi in their Mount Ninji and da Nice Time Kid outfits. Fully articulated 1/6 Action figures executed in the usual ThreeA quality and build.
Takashi Murakami Mr DOB
Released as part of the ComplexCon celebrations, these huge limited edition vinyl representations of Mr. Dob were not easy to come by. 2 Versions released the Red & Blue limited to 750 pieces and the Gold just 250.
False Friends – Reignited Monochrome
Limited to 123 sets worldwide, another one that was far from easy to cop. An absolute all time classic, Coarsetoys finest moment to date. Released in possibly the best colour way yet, Monochrome with glow in the dark accents. I literally can not wait for these to get shipped!
KAWS Companion Open Edition
Hands down the definitive designer toy. Originally released back in 2005, the KAWS Companion was pretty much responsible for the designer toy scene, and now changes hands for more than 10 times its original price tag (if you can find one). We now all have an opportunity to add one to our collections with his slightly smaller and much more affordable open edition.
Well thats my Top Ten Designer Toys Of The Year 2016, I’d love to hear your thoughts? Why not put together your own top 10 and share it here?…
