I recently had the pleasure of visiting Coarse‘s Los Angeles Studio to unbox all of the brand-new Little Voyagers blindbox figures produced by Pop Mart. Despite some slight (ahem) technical difficulties, I had a blast opening both Little Voyagers ‘chapters’ (series): Let’s Go! (daytime) and Sweet Dreams! (nighttime). Give it a watch on Youtube or below.
The twelve sculpts—two each for Cactus, Cat, Hamster, Frog, Fish & Raccoon—highlight Coarse’s signature aesthetic and emotive storytelling. In addition to character cards—fairly rare these days—Coarse has also gone the extra mile by including fold-out pamphlets in each blindbox featuring a story detailing each character’s journey (12 in all) and a full-color illustration on the flip side.
Little Voyagers are available now direct from Coarse in full cases (six figures each) for $98/case.
