MAD - Bentworld Vandals
MAD's Bentworld Vandals Series 1 mini-figs from Kidrobot feature 10 tools of the trade -- drawing and painting implements. Each character is 'Bent' with an angled posture and perhaps an equally crooked personality ? Each marker, brush, roller, comes in two versions -- a 'new' (as it would appear fresh from the hardware megamart) and 'used' (after a hard day beautifying the city). So that's 20 standard figures + 2 chase -- 'used' has Big Money and Throwie (not pictured) is part of the 'new' faction. There's a nice variety of sculpts offered -- including the expected - ubiquitous 'S' permanent markers and spray cans to the unexpected -- good 'ol fashion paint rollers and a few brush characters.
The series has several nice touches that might not be obvious from pictures. The caps of the marker and spray can characters are removable. Ala the Fat Caps, the liquid paint-based characters make the tell-tale metallic rattle noise when shaken. And yes, the paint roller spins. There's also a little 'extra' in each blind-box. While both 'used' and 'new' versions of the BWV characters are cool -- the 'used' ones have extra helpings of personality from well-placed splats to sweet doodles on the caps.
Bentworld Vandals Series 1 drops in July, so keep your eyes peeled for these splat and doodle loving rebels.
