Jeff Lamm x Unbox – SMD5 Incoming

31326721_414653725612393_2871849111038984192_n

Attention Grease Bat fans!  It looks like Jeff Lamm and Unbox are prepping a new SMD5 and this one’s quite impressive.  The forthcoming edition features a weather take on a black and gold (yellow) design.  The rust effect throughout  is quite convincing with just enough un-rusted bits to really sell it. Almost seems too good to be true for a production release. Fingers crossed. No release details as of yet.  Hmm, Five Points Festival is just a few weeks away.

Washizu makes a triumphant return in a new minimalist version.  The Bone Edition of the collabo figure from Staple Design, James Jean and Mighty Jaxx drops as a pre-order on Saturday (5.12) at 7 AM PDT from Mighty Jaxx’s online shop.  Featuring a subtle weathering effect, the new edition follows the OG verdigris style edition and is inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood—a retelling of Macbeth. James Jean pays homage to the film’s final climactic scene by recasting the Staple Pigeon as a graceful yet powerful warrior absorbing a vicious volley of arrows.  No word on pricing as of yet.
