Jim McKenzie x ToyQube – Beneath the Harvest: Pumpkin Crab (8.8)


ToyQube  is continuing its collaboration with Jim McKenzie with their second joint figure, Beneath the Harvest-Pumpkin Crab.    First seen as an unpainted proto at the Five Points Festival back in May, the figure features a wild design blending a triple stack of pumpkins with a large crab lurking within. Previously released by the artist as a low-run resin, Pumpkin Crab returns in this detailed vinyl figure and follows the recent release of his popular The Scarecrow figure with TQ. 

The first colorway  of the 10.5” vinyl art toy brings us a blue crab—two claws and six legs—poking out of and peering through Autumn’s harvest of orange and purple striped pumpkins. Limited to 180 pieces, Pumpkin Crab will be available for pre-order on Tuesday August 8th 2017 at 8 AM PDT from ToyQube for $145 (free USA shipping).
