Sky Deviler Toy Variants Unleashed
The initial run of Sky Deviler vinyl toys sold out in days, so it's no surprise that two newly unleashed variants are hotter than pea soup. First off, is a the special glow-in-the-dark Deviler. Marmit is bringing this hard-to-find, unless it's dark out, variant exclusively to Tokyo Toy Fest.
The second new variant is Kaiju.com's exclusive color variant. The "Kyoho" variant is purple vinyl with metallic green spray and orange horns, and is only available at kaiju.com and at live Big Battels. Get one now, while supplies (100 pieces) last.
Of course, you could wait and try to pick one up at the Big Brooklyn Battel on November 9th. You'll be taking a chance though - both the Battel and the Deviler dolls are sure to sell out soon.

Dusto Bunny Out Sick
Per order of the Center of Disease Control, Dusto Bunny's match against Giii the Space Pirate has been put on hold. In light of Dusto's recent ailments, the KRC was concerned that he would not be well enough to return to the Big Battel. Dusto's mysterious aliment is reported to be highly contagious and there is concern that the popular Hero could spread the disease to other Heroes in the locker room, like some sort of mutant, radioactive athlete's rabbit-foot. Considering the dwindling Kaiju Hero roster, the KRC ruled that the human race can not afford to take such risks.
Tandem Title Update
In related news, the Kaiju Commissioner is considering including a tag team featuring Sekmet and Giii in the Double Danger Tandem Title Battel. According to the KRC press department, the Commissioner is evaluating three tag team finalists: America Beetle and Neo Teppen, Call-Me-Kevin and Unibouzu and Giii and Sekmet. Provided Giii and Sekmet make the cut, this tag team bout will be Sekmet's Kaiju debut.
Cube Voicemail Controversy
Dr. Cube has led the way once again in the Kaiju merchandising department. The leading mad scientist is now offering personalized voicemail in exchange for a small "contribution" to Dr. Cube's Posse. In response, the Kaiju Commissioner has fined Cube for unauthorized use of the Kaiju trademark and issued a worldwide ban on all recordings of personalized voice mail greetings by Dr. Cube. If you are in possession of said recordings, you are advised to erase the recordings at once or risk fines up to $250,000, 6 months in a maximum security federal prison, or 7 pushups.

Rogue Status Shocks Most
In a Kaiju Big Battel survey, 78% of Kaiju fans polled were disappointed with the Kaiju Commissioner's decision to re-classify Pedro Plantain as a Rogue after the freedom-loving plantain hired the murderous Iron Brothers to take revenge on Silver Potato for killing his twin brother Pedro Plantain. The Commissioner defended his decision by saving, "The hiring of mercenaries is most despicable, and that sort of behavior must not be tolerated regardless of the circumstances. The Iron Brothers apparently have not yet captured or killed the elusive Silver Potato, but the Commissioner's ruling still stands.
