 17125837_1001391603328414_2836593914939441152_n

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.

AKA Curious Boy – East to West: XuanZang

bronze version5

Shanghai-based artist Curious Boy (@akacuriousboy) has just released his new art toy, XuanZang.  The new figure is the third release in his East to West series, a hip-hop infused take on the legendary Chinese tale Journey to The West.  XuanZang offers a new vision of the tale’s central character, a monk, making the perilous journey. The artist’s stylized warrior monk figure features a striking, elaborate helmet/cloak (removable) symbolizing the White Dragon Horse.  He also flashes a modified version of Jay Z’s signature hand gesture.

XuanZang stands 9” without cloak about 10.25” with it.  The figure will be available in four planned versions including Bronze (above) which features an impressive patina effect and Golden (below).  Both are available now for $150 (including global shipping). To order drop an email to name.lau@qq.com.

Staple x James Jean x Mighty Jaxx – Washizu (3.4)

16906142_370395760013262_3455718140762128384_n 

Washizu, the previously mentioned collab between the Staple brand and James Jean will be available as a 24-hr timed edition on Saturday (3.4) at 8 AM PST over at StapleXJamesJean.com for an as-yet unannounced price.  Inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood—a retelling of Macbeth—and its lead character, the striking PVC figure offers James Jean’s vision of the film’s climatic scene, recasting Jeff Staple’s signature Pigeon—celebrating its 20th anniversary—as a graceful yet powerful warrior absorbing a volley of arrows. 

As seen in the concept art, Washizu—produced by Mighty Jaxx—makes the transition from strong drawing to forceful sculpture with a commanding finish featuring a blue slate effect and golden arrows—that final color choice is in flux.  With an artful mix of the Staple Brand, James Jean and Akira Kurosawa, this promises to be one of the premiere drops of 2017.
