I am not an ultracrepidarian and this is no fanfaronade! Earlier, I wrote about Tomenosuke‘s partnership with Circus Posterus and the unveiling of Brandt Peters’ new sofubi toy, Stingy Jack. Well, under the quiet cloak of nightfall, another fleet of figures made its way onto Japanese shores.
I’m a huge fan of Russian designer Sergey Safonov, and his resin Moon Wanderers. I’ve been picking them up one-by-one for several years now, with Moon Mouse being my most recent acquisition. Almost exactly two years ago, Sergey’s Moon Wanderers became the subject of my first Toys by Design column for Design Bureau magazine.
Now, for the first time, you can collect the whole quartet of Moon Wanderers in one ￥21,000 or ~ $270 USD purchase. The cast of characters includes Moon Fox, Moon Cat, Kluth and all-new colorways of Moon Mouse. Act quickly here!
If you’re seeking something glossy, a little tree spirit told me that you can now get full 7-piece sets of Sergey’s beautiful porcelain Flirps (last seen here) for only $120! Individual porcelain Flirps ($20-$25) and full sets are both available directly through Sergey’s mini-shop. Sweet work, as always!
