Mighty Jaxx might not have attended STGCC in 2018 but we didn’t miss the opportunity to meet our fans here in home-ground Singapore, at the inaugural Culture Cartel! We are stepping into 2019 with this recap of the event, and read till the end for a sneakpeek of what else is coming up this January!!
Thronged with people over the first weekend of December 2018, the street culture event brought together people from all walks of life in an event celebrating the many different facets of street culture! With close to a hundred booths boasting some of the biggest who's who in the local and international urban culture scene, Mighty Jaxx is proud to be headlining the toys sector for the two-day event. The Mighty Jaxx team had a blast meeting everyone who came by the booth, sharing our passions with collectors alike and introducing the mighty world of toys to potential collectors.

For this event, the Mighty Jaxx team had spent weeks curating and preparing more than 40 different toys that we were sure that our local fans as well as first-time collectors would love! Some of the most popular toys from the XXRAY Tokidoki series were wiped out quickly, and many toys such as Washizu by Staple X James Jean found their way to homes of people who don't previously own such art collectibles. That feeling of kickstarting someone's designer toy collecting journey is pretty hard to beat, we must say!
On top of bringing in some of our highly-coveted events exclusives of 2018 and some rare pieces from our collection, we have also exclusively launched 3 products at Culture Cartel 2018;
Happy POPek by Whatshisname (GID)
You’ve already met the adorable little Happy POPek in red, now let this playful pup bring a happy glow into your lives!
Baby Rabbit by Alex Face (Eskimo)
The latest colourway of Baby Rabbit with its soft pink blush and icy cool blue will keep you cool for the summer!
XXRAY Plus: 8.5" Elmo (Pink)
See Elmo like you’ve never seen him before! The third colourway of the highly successful figure reimagines the iconic character in a charming shade of pink. First dibs for our readers... this will be released online soon too.
On hand at Culture Cartel were frequent Might Jaxx collaborators Alex Face and Whatshisname! Down in Singapore for the first time, fans got the once in a life time opportunity to meet the juggernauts of the arts scene and get their figures specially signed. We are, after all, nothing without our amazing artists, and it's great to be the bridge between our artists and their fans. Whatshisname and Alex Face had also participated in various panel discussions with "Culture Cartel Conversations" and even customised some Nike Air Force 1 for the event! If you had your toy signed at Culture Cartel, remember to share those pics and tag us @mightyjaxx on Instagram!
Fans brought their own POPIKI collection down to be autographed by Whatshisname!
Alex Face had some fun customising this pair of Air Force 1 at the event. Don't you just love this guy!?
We’ll definitely find more opportunities to bring over our artists for fan meets like this! If you have some artists and toy designers that you are dying to meet, why not tell us who! Who knows who we might bring down for future events?
Speaking of events, we have big (yes, BIG) plans upcoming in May this year. More information will be released real soon, so make sure to stay tuned to our social media and subscribe to our newsletter and be on top of it all!
Didn’t attend Culture Cartel and want to get your hands on these special figures? Fret not! We will be releasing them over the month of January right here on our online store, and they will all be in stock and ready to ship! Starting with Happy POPek by Whatshisname (GID) last week, Mighty Jaxx will be releasing Baby Rabbit by Alex Face (Eskimo) this week and XXRAY+ Elmo (Pink Edition) will be following closely!
And as promised... here's a special sneak-peek of something that's dropping from the sky this January!
