Update: Mister Cartoon - Lost Angels
We previously featured Mister Cartoon's Lost Angels figure from Super Rad Toys on an installment of Proto Monday. Those initial pictures were of the unpainted master mold and left many wanting to see more. So, we return with very detailed pre-production shots of the figure and from the looks of it, this is set to be a standout release.
Mr. Cartoon built his well-deserved reptuation on his beautiflly detailed and highly sought after tattoo art. So while the overall figure design, based on Cartoon's established Lost Angels character, is shaping up very nicley, the tattoos are the standout highlight by far. Judging by these shots, the tattoos on the figure excel both artisticly in faithfully representing Cartoon's art and technically as they appear to be some of the most complex pad prints to date. The 14" tall figure with flocked white wings is covered with his signature tattoos on his chest, back, arms, stomach and shoulders.
The attention to detail has also carried over to the accessories including Joker Brand cut 'n sew clothes, two sets of Mister Cartoon x Nike shoes -- Cortez and Air Force 1's, SA Studios necklace, T-mobile sidekick accessory complete with 180 degree swivel screen, and a boomboox complete with Mister cartoon tag.
Packaged in a flip-up window box, Mister Cartoon will be available in four limited-edition colorways starting with the initial gray mono colorway dropping near the end of February '07 and will retail for $130.00. It's reassuring to see different voices putting their art and work out there in the designer toy game.

This shit is killer. How can anyone hate on a REAL street artist putting his work out unfiltered and raw? This shit kills most of what out today IMO. I'm definitely copping the gray and black one!
I'm hoping Mister Cartoon follows up with a thick ass female one too!
