Proto Monday >> minigods by Marka27

News on Marka27's minigods has been pretty sparse.  So for this Proto Monday, we're happy to bring you a first look at the wax cast of MG1 Brazil as well as pics of the critical speaker assembly.  The MG1 Brazil minigod is nearing it's final stages and is set for an early summer release.  Marka27 has teamed up with the legendary threezero to manufacture the minigods. "I am very pleased with the work the threezero team has done with the minigods. They have done a good job staying true to my design and have paid very close attention to details and quality."

The long-awaited figure comes with a full range speaker and has an integrated amplifier for increased speaker power -- all the better to bump your music! A lone 9 volt battery will power the speaker and amp. The figure will have a minijack connector (seen on the bottom left-hand side)   providing compatability with any music device with a  headphone jack such as an ipod, cd player, boombox,  laptop or desktop. MG1 Brazil will be limited to 600 figures in the  Brazil colorway and only 100  each for both the NY and LA editions.  Bucking the trend of neverending colorway waves,  once these are gone Marka will not produce any additional colorways of the figure.

I appreciate the concern and constructive comment but the photos your looking at are wax and the head is not attached neither are the extentionson the side of the head. Most of the weight is on the bottom, battery, speakers, amp and the base is wide and flat. Threezero has been very informative throughout the entire process and have been consulting me with on anything that needs modification for the best results, balance being one of them. The figure should stand on its own when its in vinyl.

Only a 9V Battery??? please tell me there will be a power adapter aswell.
