PLASEEBO Teams Up with Planet-X to Produce SUM

by

We are most excited to announce PLASEEBO has joined forces with PLANET-X.

            Offering the best of both worlds with hands on supervision of vinyl production in both China and          
            Japan.

            PLANET-X will be producing and marketing an ongoing series of original PLASEEBO created               
            figures, beginning with the “SUM” creature.

            The first release of the “SUM” creature in vinyl will be on May 5th in Japan at the MANDARAKE 
            "Indy Sofubi Rally”.

Teaser for SUM
 " THE LEGEND OF SUM "

Driving home from the local red neck bar one moon lit summer night, Roy swerves his pick up toward a  dark shape that is slowly moving along side the road. A loud CRACK shatters the darkness as the front tire breaks the giant snapping turtles' shell in two, right down the center. The great snapper rolls down the embankment into the stream and Roy's laughing fades as the truck turns to cross the bridge to his shabby farm house across the stream.
The turtle, floating belly up is carried downstream to the other side and is swept into a quiet eddy where he sinks watching the moon fade from yellow to blood red through the darkening water.

This small pool cut into the bank of the stream was at the back Roy's property and he used it as his personal dump site. The water caught in this hole became a terrible toxic soup of motor oil, fertilizer, broken toys, bones and entrails of many slaughtered animals, rusty tools and who knows what else.

Over the next few months, a strange transformation took place in this evil chowder as it baked in the summer heat. A creature of revenge, born of cruelty and neglect slid its way out of the sickening mess one dark September night. 
Roy's body was never found, nor could anyone explain the slime trail from the bedroom through the field behind the house.

Over the years that followed, other neglectful farmers vanished on moonless nights and folks reported vague sightings of a creature that seamed to be cobbled together from a collection of garbage, an old doll, bone, rotted skin, and broken tools, with a large snapping turtle skull for a head. They call him "SUM".



Petunia Rotten Resin Figure by RenOne

by

Petunia Rotten is the ultimate bad bitch. She knows what she wants and will do whatever it takes to get it. The hustle never stops for Petunia because she maintains an eight figure bank account, and can be caught walking through the hood in louboutins smelling of hundred dollar bills.  She knows how to throw her ass in a circle but won’t take shit from nobody. Petunia is smarter than Einstein as she has a PhD in Bad Bitchin'. Hide your kids and hide your wife because Miss Petunia Rotten has come to life.



Renone Lab has teamed up with self proclaimed bad bitch Petunia to make a resin figure from a commissioned drawing from GPK artist Mark Pingatore . This was 3d sculpted , 3d printed and molded and cast in resin . There will be a limited amount of unpainted "kits" (head, hands and body are separate) for sale on the 27th of April at 2am Designer Toys. Price is 45 dollars.

Preorder Frightened Anthony 5.5-inch PVC Figure by ANATOY

by


PREORDER ships May 2018

“Anthony” has severe stage fright. When he stands in front of an audience, he gets extremely nervous and sweats a lot like feeling nausea. ANATOY offers a strong heart “STEAM” to Anthony who suffers from mental complex.

size: 5.5" inches
highly articulated
materials: PVC & ABC
designed in South Korea by ANATOY
About ANATOY:

ANATOY is about the complex.

ANATOY is an Art Toy that brings the concept of anatomy to toys and talks about the mental or physical complexes that everybody has but hardly get people’s understanding.

People set goals and make steady efforts to overcome their complexes, but it is not as easy as they think. We have a number of characters who have their own complexes. They are offered a wide range of experiment suggestions at ANATOY Market (ATM) so that they can overcome their complexes and lead an ordinary life like others.

This process helps us understand and empathize with many different complexes of ourselves and others that all of us do not want to show. What we at ANATOY want is help people to have a better and deeper understanding of complexes things that everybody lives with and how one embraces them.
