James Groman x Instinctoy - King Korpse Threat Variant
King Korpse has been on a tear lately. As soon as a new edition is released, it’s quickly devoured by collectors. So it’s exciting to see that James Groman and Instinctoy are working on a new ‘Threat’ head-sculpt. Aptly described, the new sculpt features an enraged King Korpse with his mouth agape. We can’t wait to see more on this fearsome development.
