Coarse – Flake, Fluid and Float 10th Anniversary Editions (3.11)
Back before Coarse became a household name among art toy collectors, Mark Landwehr released Flake, Fluid and Float –- action-sports themed 1:6 style figures. I remember being really impressed by these at Munky King on Melrose sometime in ‘05/’06. They were sleek, fresh and just a bit funky – definitely not your typical hyper-detailed 12” figures. Simple, bold lines were their calling card.
To celebrate a decade of making their signature brand of art toys, Coarse has revisited Flake, Fluid and Float. The upcoming 10th Anniversary Editions (previewed during SDCC 13) have been remastered -- both Flake and Fluid feature updated, larger sculpts. Fluid features a new pose and comes with a large 18” longboard. With years of experience behind them, Mark and Sven have been able to push the limits of vinyl production with these new editions.
Btw, in case you’re thinking hmm Flake, Fluid and Float– that’s three characters and the pics show just two figures… Float is an alter-ego of sorts of the skateboarding Flake. Take off Flake’s normal head and swap in the the skateboard truck head, and you’ve got Float.
The 10th Anniversary Flake, Float and Fluid figures will be released in two editions – a signature Pain edition (220 pcs) and a more colorful Cream edition (320 pcs). Each of the two editions will come packaged in a premium color printed gift box. Both editions drop on Tuesday March 11th 2014 @ 7:59 AM for HK$ 2680 (~ $340) from coarsehkg.com. A bundle of both editions will be available for HK$ 4800. As always this pricing includes global surface shipping. Finally, Coarse is now on Twitter and Instagram – follow ‘em.
