More Deathshead from David Flores
Clear your shelves and save your money! David Flores recently posted a rainbow of his Deathshead figure with Bic Plastics and Hellfire Canyon Club. 3 of the 6 pictured we’ve already seen, but the Red, Silver, and Blue are totally new! We’re curious to see who will be releasing those. David also mentions that there will be no GID release (Sorry GID collectors), but clear vinyl release is in the works! I am just hoping these don’t release so close to one another, since there have been about 4 have announced for pre-order in the last couple months (OG, Mono, Green, Brown).

Dudebox has revealed their 2nd figure in the Pete Fowler & Fiends line by none other than Tristan Eaton -- designer of the Dunny and Munny platforms and so much more. Rendered in brown and yellow hues, Tristan's Fib Fairy is based on the 'Owen' sculpt and makes good use of the bulbous head shape. This one really stands out among Dudebox's NYCC lineup. Fib Fairy will be available at the Dudebox booth (#2915) starting on Thursday (10.11) and at usa.dudebox.com.
