Check out this hot Duel Disk backpack, a collaboration between Yu-Gi-Oh! and Sprayground, a designer and producer of street-art-inspired backpacks and accessories. The design is a mashup of the Battle City Duel Disk with Sprayground’s popular “shark mouth” motif seen on many of its products. The entirety of the bag is adorned with the anime-style Yu-Gi-Oh! card backing, while Yami Yugi poses proudly behind the Duel Disk. The bag comes loaded with a Speed Duel deck — because it’s always time to duel.

The Duel Disk backpack is available now directly from Sprayground for $80.

Yu-Gi-Oh! is just one of many anime and video game properties that Sprayground has partnered with. The brand has also applied its rebellious flair to its Dragon Ball Z, Mega Man, One Piece, One-Punch Man, and Pokemon products. There’s much more to see on Sprayground’s Instagram.

All of Sprayground’s products are made in limited quantities and never reissued, so don’t miss your chance to pick up this unique designer Yu-Gi-Oh! item.

2D concept art of Taka Corp Studio's Atem bust

Premium collectibles maker Taka Corp Studio announced on Sunday that its next Yu-Gi-Oh! product will be a 1/1 scale bust of Atem. The France-based company posted part of the 2D concept art of the pharaoh, pictured above, on Facebook.

Atem’s design has only just been approved, said Taka Corp associate founder Grégory do Cabo in the post’s comments, so there is not yet any information about its release schedule. However, the company plans to have its Exodia bust ready for pre-order in February or March 2020.

Cabo further stated that Taka Corp’s 1/1 scale Millennium Puzzle replica will be released “later.” The Puzzle will be crafted in resin and include an attractive base, he said.

Blue-Eyes White Dragon and Seto Kaiba in episode 149

Over half a year has elapsed since First 4 Figures has announced any significant developments with its Yu-Gi-Oh! products. In April, the high-end collectibles maker revealed that it had completely redone its Blue-Eyes White Dragon and Dark Magician sculpts, a move that transformed the look of the monsters for the better at the cost of delaying their launch. Since then, the company has submitted those designs to Konami for approval and the two have been working together to prepare for production. In November, F4F’s CEO Alex Davis at last provided some promising updates about their progress.

“I just got the a-okay finally on one piece at 3D,” said Davis in his November 15 Q&A live stream. “We’ve reworked that a couple of times as well.”

Davis provided further details on November 23 in a comment in the F4F Official Collectors Club on Facebook. (Note: Admin approval is necessary to view this group.)

“This project [has] been challenging — but we’re now moving to the physical on BEWD [Blue-Eyes White Dragon] and DM [Dark Magician],” Davis wrote. “DMG [Dark Magician Girl] 2D concept is now done and looks sick — moving to 3D on that.”

To date, Davis has not provided any images of Blue-Eyes and Dark Magician’s new designs. But with these latest comments underscoring their progress, we can only hope that he is ready to provide a tease next before printing the prototypes.

Animated Version of Haste’s Yugi Muto from the Yu-Gi-Oh! Tribute Art Show NYC

November 5, 2019 at 1:00 pm | Posted in Duel Monsters, Konami, Yu-Gi-Oh! | Leave a comment

One of the many transformations in the Yugi Muto video installation from the Yu-Gi-Oh! Tribute Art Show NYC

Yugi Muto was originally a painted wall mural at Konami and Gallery1988’s Yu-Gi-Oh! art show in Los Angeles earlier this year. Even though the 12-foot-tall creation by graffiti artist Haste is no more, the design was revived as a video installation by Ryan Kelly for the show in New York last month.

Yesterday, Konami uploaded the complete animated version of Yugi Muto to share with the world. Now accompanied by some soothing music, the video shows Haste’s creation unhurriedly transforming and warping with the use of numerous digital effects over the course of 14 minutes. Check it out!

I knew the animation was long, but I had no idea it was that long. I’m embarrassed to say that when I first saw the video installation in New York, I thought it was a just a static image of Haste’s original art because I happened to look at it when it was in its unaltered state. I sure felt silly after being told that it changes ever so slowly. Well of course it does!

A 7-by-8-inch giclee print reproduction of the original Yugi Muto is still available for sale from Gallery1988 for $20.

Yugi Muto print on display at the Yu-Gi-Oh! Tribute Art Show NYC

Several prints, posters, and original pieces from the Yu-Gi-Oh! Tribute Art Show NYC are now available for purchase online. Check out the Yu-Gi-Oh! collection on Gallery1988’s website, updated today to include the seven limited edition works that were on sale at the New York show, along with other pieces from the Los Angeles show.

While supplies last, everyone can pick up limited edition prints of Haste’s Yugi Muto (pictured above) for $20, Dan Mumford’s Behold The Legendary Gods. for $60, Michael Vincent Bramley’s Forbidden for $35, and more.

The framed original or first printing of most of the works are also available. Definitely take a look at Bennett Slater’s Two Little Blue Little Eyes, available for $2,000, and Daria Theodora’s Osiris the Sky Dragon, available for $1,000. The limited edition screen print versions of these two pieces sold out at the New York show, so the originals are all that are left.

Budget-conscious Yu-Gi-Oh! fans can buy poster print replicas of two popular pieces from the Los Angeles show — Anthony Petrie’s Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon and Dan Mumford’s It’s time to duel. — for $20 each.

For more information about the order fulfillment and shipping process, take a look at Gallery1988’s FAQs.

Update (October 22): All of the original pieces displayed at the New York show are still available for purchase, even if they aren’t currently listed on the website. A post today on the official Yu-Gi-Oh! Fan Page on Facebook instructs interested buyers to inquire by emailing Gallery1988 at:
