Instinctoy continues its Erosion line of crossover figures in a fun, unexpected direction with the upcoming Erosion Bugs Bunny vinyl art toy done in collaboration with Soap Studio. This time around the brand’s symbiotic Liquid character blends with the iconic Looney Tunes character than an artist’s character such as the Erosion Molly toy—a collaboration with Kenny Wong.
With an oozing texture, the Erosion Bug Bunny shows the effects of the symbiotic pairing. The erosion is most prominent in the hands and the legs/feet, leaving Bugs’ head mostly intact. As with previous collaborations, liquid makes an appearance here on Bugs Bunny’s right hip.
With approval from Inctintoy’s Hiroto Ohkubo, Erosion Bugs Bunny is lined up for a hopeful September 2020 release.
Fans of Natsume Inc.’s farming sim series, Harvest Moon, and its spin-offs know that one of the big bonuses for pre-ordering the games are the adorable animal plushes, especially the larger ones in their Premium bundles. These lovable stuffed critters are made by SOTA Toys and, speaking from my previous experience with the company, very high quality. The next game to receive the Premium bundle treatment is Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley, which will be accompanied by a Snow Bunny plush. The bunny seems to be quite a bit larger than the puppy plush offered as a bonus for pre-ordering at major retailers (the dog is available at the Natsume store as well). I would wager about 6-inches tall, not including its ears.
The Harvest Moon: The Lost Valley Premium bundle is exclusive to Natsume’s online store and costs US$39.99, just US$10 more than the standard edition. For a plush this cute, that is a steal! The bundle is a pre-order, set to ship on November 4.
