Ninjatown Micro Plush!

Feb 17, 2009 By Shawnimal 13 comments

For those of you new to the Ninjatown Micro Plush series, they're a designer toy project produced in collaboration between Chicago-based character designer studio Shawnimals and product development specialists Squibbles Ink + designer toy store Rotofugi.

Ninjatown Micro Plush Series 1.0 was released in late 2007 and a special SDCC Macho Micro Plush Ninjatown was release at San Diego Comic Con in 2008. Now we have the upcoming Series 1.5 and Series 2.0 releases!

Series 2 features all new characters, some you might remember from our popular DS game! Each box also comes with a new sticker and fold-out poster inside! Series 1.5 is similar to Series 1, except now 100% embroidered. Basically new facial features, and a new sticker inside. See the Zombie Ninja photo below for a comparison. Both series are coming out in mid- to end-March, possibly into April release and an MSRP of $5.95 each.

More soon! For now check back here, and on the Ninjatown Toys site by Squibbles + Rotofugi

    This is the best news ever.. and I mean ever. My 2009 has been so far, really crappy. This totally made my year.

    YES!! I'm definitely getting a set of these and a T-shirt when this comes out. I'm so glad I didn't miss out.

    will full cases be available?
    i am really looking forward to these. wish i lived in SF so i could get them early!

    Full cases will be available for the full release for sure. The WonderCon pre-release this weekend in San Francisco will be available in limited quantity, so no full cases out there.

    Okay, I'm a bit confused Shawn. I saw that you had 'preposted' the microplushes with a 'Coming soon' in the place of a purchase button. Then this morning, I checked and it said SOLD OUT!

    Uh.... what? Is it just the new shop or did I miss the release?
    I've been on everyday! I swear/promise!

    this is taken from the description...
    "COMING SOON! Says sold out, but actually just means we don’t have em yet… sorry!"

    Sorry for the confusion! We just put up our new shop page this weekend so we are still working out the bugs! We are still hoping to have the microplush up on the shop page in about a month- they are NOT sold out!
