Fools Paradise – XL Three King: Two Three Pre-Order
Next up for Fools Paradise’s new XL line of 20” vinyl figures is Three King: Two Three. The giant Fool version of his Airness dwarfs the OG release and features an alternate head with bull horns – nice touch. Beyond cutting an impressive profile, the larger format allows for impressive detail throughout but particularly on the kicks. The ‘Fools’ (Jordans) feature a realistic sculpt with realistic laces and stitching. If you’re not familiar with the brand’s Three King series, the name references a trio of Chicago Bulls stars – Jordan, Pippen, and Rodman.
Limited to 398 pieces, XL Three King: Two Three is available for pre-order direct from Fools Paradise for $358 (+ $30 for global shipping). The figures will ship in the September-October timeframe.

Both editions were designed by the original prop designers, Gregory Jein. Available directly from Tomenosuke (9980 yen/ ~ $91), this new edition continues founder Shinji Nakako’s lifelong passion for sci-fi movies, related props and the brand’sline of detailed replicas including numerous incarnations of the Blade Runner Blaster.
