Fools Paradise – The Confession Set Pre-Orders
My personal list of favorite toy artists includes the usual extremely talented suspects along with one wildcard –- Fools Paradise. As part of Boredom Squeezer, Alan Ng defined the 1:6 fashion figure scene. On his own with Fools Paradise, Alan has consistently released stylish and dramatic ‘toys’ that often induce head turning and at times, head scratching.
With his newest creation, the ‘Confession Set’ once again embraces and indulges his inner Star Wars nerd. It might be tempting to simply write off his recent series of Lucas inspired pieces as the latest examples of an artist catching in on the peerless popularity of the sci-fi classic. That would be too easy though. Confession is hard to so quickly dismiss. It’s an eclectic mix of pop culture, religion, and violence that overloads the eyes and the mind. I’m not quite sure what to make of it, except to say that I hope Alan continues to make toys from his heart and imagination.
Measuring 43 cm x 35 cm x 29 cm (16.9 x 13.8 x 11.4 inches), the Confession Set is available for pre-order now from Fools Paradise for $498 USD which includes global EMS shipping. The sets will be produced to order and will ship in Q3 2014. Pre-orders will end on 3.21.

why use imagination when you can just throw in star wars and sell more?
