LOS ANGELES, Nov. 22, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Super Rad (OTCBB:FBCD) is excited to announce plans to expand The Ningyo Project. Besides producing Collectible Figures, Super Rad is working with strategic partners to develop other categories including Animation, Apparel, House Wares, School Supplies, and Video Games. The next wave of figures will be designed by artists such as Cope2, Matthew Langille, Junko Mizuno, Shin Tanaka, and Sun Min to name a few. Super Rad will have signing events to commemorate each release.

"Developing in-house intellectual property, such as The Ningyo Project, is one of our main focuses," said Christopher LeClerc, CEO of Super Rad Industries. LeClerc continues, "The Ningyo Project is a cross between Pokémon and The Surfs and has the ability to become an important Life Style Brand."

Nin=Human and Gyo=Form. These figures coincide with the long form of the word doll; i-dol. The Ningyo's function is to provoke, invoke, revere, and inspire. The doll Super Rad chose to recreate is a Gosho Doll; meaning from or of the Palace of Kyoto. The Goshos are wearing an Eboshi, or court cap, which accentuates their noble decent. The category of Gosho Doll that Super Rad decided to recreate is called Tachiko.

The Ningyo Project was conceived initially as a research project. As The Ningyo Project evolved and developed, Super Rad decided to turn the Project into a unique Do It Yourself Platform Project called Ningyo Project: Gosho Doll. The idea behind this was whoever collected these pieces from the artists had a connection to that artist, embracing and championing the aesthetic/point of view of that artist. LeClerc continues, "In a sense the Ningyo Project: Gosho Doll is also a sociological study." Super Rad has released many Ningyos to date including versions designed by Joe Hawn, Jim Kock, James Marshal aka Dalek, Tara McPherson, Grag Simkins aka Craola, Joe Hawn, Plastigid, and Tokidoki.
