Here at Fig-lab we have been pretty stoked on our new S.T.E.A.M. colorway utilizing Goto-sensei’s inimitable metallic Copper, Silver and Gold paints. Last month, we released a handful of PaulKaiju’s iconic Unchiman in this new colorway that we have developed (a few of which are still available!) and now the Finger Five get the full S.T.E.A.M. treatment. As always you can buy single servings of your favorite character for ¥1500 each (~$12USD) or grab all five and get the secret bonus figure (hint: its datadub). Available now at FIG-X.net! For a limited time you can FREE HOLIDAY SHIPPING on any order over ¥5000 yen when you use the coupon code HOHOHO2015 at checkout.

in brand new episodes as personally related at the third meeting of the Global Figure Symposium.
The Rift in the space-time continuum has closed but our universe will never be the same.
The Global Figure Symposium 2010 – the CROSSOVER – was a smashing success – old friends, new alliances, familiar figures and radical re-imaginings were all in evidence.
Big UP to all the creators who participated:
Real x Head, Uamou, Skulltoys, PaulKaiju, Dead Presidents, MonstreHero, L’amour Supreme, Sucklord (and Vektar), The Tarantulas, Jesse DeStassio, Spy Monkey Creations, Brand Loyalty Toys, and everyone else who made the event what it was!
