While best known for his Greenie & Elfie characters, Too Natthapong’s creativity extends well beyond the popular duo. While sightings are few and far between, his whimsically graceful Kewii bird is a stylized take on New Zealand’s flightless bird.
The new Glow Pink Flake Clear edition of the bird—previously released at the recent Shanghai Toy Show— just might be our favorite version yet. The colorful soft vinyl figure features a yellow translucent beak and a clear body with elegant pink flake throughout, a fanciful fur of sorts. Purple feet and an orange/pink tail complete the design. With the lights off, the figure takes on an ethereal vibe with the pink flake’s brilliant white glow. The new Kewii edition showcases the artistry of a beautifully balanced and conceived design that transcends the ‘colorway’ concept.
The Kewii Glow Pink Flake Clear Edition vinyl art toy (3.15″) will be available as a worldwide online release on Saturday (11.21) at 7 AM PST from Unbox Industries for $30. Unbox will also release simultaneously release four Green & Elfie figures including Jumping Elfie Rainbow Edition, Elfie’s Cafe Waitress Greenie (Green Outfit) as well as Rainy Day Elfie and Rainy Day Greenie.
As Unruly Industries has just lifted the lid off their initial collection of new art toys (original and licensed), we’re posting a few that have caught our eye. On the originals front comes the quirky and visually striking I See Colours from Tony Riff. The curious black and white character features streams of color pouring out of his eyes. This apparent bust style vinyl is set for a pre-order on Tuesday (2.19)
