Martin Hsu’s Dragon Boy @ SDCC

 

1_dragon_boy

Martin Hsu is a proud new father… of the brand new Dragon Boy vinyl (7.5”), his first vinyl art toy.  I had a chance to check out the figure in person at Martin’s SDCC booth and came away impressed.  Manufactured under the careful watch of VTSS Toys,  final piece retains the whimsy and adventure of Martin’s character with seemingly few compromises in the translation to 3D.  The fun figure seems to max out the possibilities of the medium with organic sculpted elements throughout including the curvy tale with numerous spikes, the flames surrounding the head and those tiny arms.  And to top it off, Martin funded this project on his own in order to make it happen according to his vision.  Following the pre-order and limited SDCC drop,  the OG version (300 pieces) will be available in the official online release on 7.23 from martinhsu.com and vtsstoys.com  for $85.  Dragon Boy is one of the nicer releases of 2012 so far, worth a look.
