It’s well known that when Coarse Toys showcase a new sculpt at Thailand Toy Expo, we can soon expect to see it released in the future, especially the cutesy stuff. This year we were treated to the new sculpt of Mambo & Little Bandit. As seen below, Mambo & Little Bandit are two mean looking apes. They’ve got the Coarse colours going on, and a sweet Coarse sculpt. Clean lines & prominent features. These are both part of another collaboration with JPX, who worked with Coarse to drop a number of other cute ace releases in the past few years – Protect Me as a prime example! Thanks to Jeep at JPX for the pics!
Nothing much is known about Mambo & Little Bandit at this stage other than the reveals shown at TTE 2018 were cast in resin. We fully expect that these will see a vinyl release in due coarse… (yeah, we meant course, but you know coarse > course)
Hey, anyways, as an example of Coarse dropping a previous reveal from TTE. Take the Friends Feast from 2017. These four cute critters were shown at Thailand Toy Expo and we all set for a new ‘Omen’ invasion of cute Coarse releases.
Flash forward to 2018 and we’re seeing the first release of the pigeon – Ruffle & Toast in a Blackout colourway about to be released into the wild this weekend. You can find details on the Ruffle & Toast release HERE. We are super excited to see Ruffle & Toast get their first release cos that pigeon is FIRE! Love it!
So basically, what we’re saying is that keep your eye on future release from Coarse x JPX. Cos you’ll no doubt see Mambo & Little Bandit released within the next 12-18 months! In the meantime, why don’t you take the time to go vote for The Toy Chronicle in the Best Media Outlet award at this year’s Designer Toy Awards? Every vote counts. Literally & figuratively.
