Taiwan-based artist and toy-designer SHON has announced the upcoming pre-order for his brand new vinyl figure; “HUG HUG CAT”! With the “Galaxy” Edition scheduled for a pre-order starting February 22nd and ending Feb 28th (at 24:00hrs). Exact quantity of this edition is as yet revealed, but if you are familiar with SHON’s releases, they do not hang around much longer - especially his “Cat Rider” customs!
Priced at US$75 per (exclude shipping), you can order this 16cm tall Made-in-Taiwan vinyl figure online via shonsidestore.bigcartel.com.
"Hug Hug Cat which is "made in Taiwan" has different meaning for me - from prototype to mold, each phase and quality was controlled by myself and hope that everyone can own this Taiwan vinyl satisfyingly~" - shared Shon Chen.
I am truly loving this aesthetic of HUG HUG CAT (which I’d love to call “抱抱猫” LOL) = a baby-styled version of Shon’s Cat Rider, wearing a riding helmet with horns on the head sticking forth, and the adorable body of a baby - complete with cute bums and chubby belly!
I would expect MORE versions/editions/colorways to come, and with SHON being a customization “fiend” too, I’d heartily recommend you stay connected via his Instagram @shonside!
