On this bright and sunny Proto Monday we’re introducing Plasticgod’s Pocket Jesus, an upcoming original 3" minifigure from Super Rad Toys. We’ve got a look at the sculpt (above) and a resin cast (below). The figure will ship with the Crown of Thorns accessory (shown in the sculpt shot) and a cane (not pictured). Pocket Jesus ? We asked Plasticgod and here’s the straight info —
" I don’t want to start any blasphemous rumors but I think that
Plasticgod has got a sick sense of humor….to paraphrase Depeche Mode.
There are lots of Jesus items out there and nobody has really put
"cute" into the equation, humor yes, but not cute. Thats where a
Plasticgod design steps in adding the "awww, it’s so cute" factor.
I hope people get that from the design seeing how the merch with the
original image seems to get that reaction. It’s small, pocket size if
you will and a great addition to anyones’ minifigure collection
especially with the mind bending variants we (Super Rad Toys and I)
have planned. I’m really excited about it and can’t wait to trip people out. "
The figure will ship with the Crown of Thorns accessory (shown in the sculpt shot) and a cane (not pictured). In addition to a blind-boxed series featuring 6 to 8 regular colorways + 2 chase editions, Pocket Jesus will also be available in a separate standard colorway edition. This one is scheduled to drop for the upcoming Holiday season.
