Mister Melty will be front and center at Buff Monster’s upcoming Melt With Me show opening on Thursday (2.16) from 6-8 PM in NYC at a still undisclosed location. The event will feature three editions of the Buff Monster’s Ice Cream character which is a fun, modern reflection of the inevitable decay that we and all good things face. Just as ice cream melts, so to do our physical appearances, skills, and health.
First up is a very limited giant Mister Melty sculpture which we recently wrote about. We now know that this premium, definitive sculptural edition of the character stands 24” tall and is a resin and fiberglass hybrid. Towering over his brothers ), the giant Mister Melty (shown above next to the 3.5” sofubi version and the upcoming concrete editions) is the ultimate, high-end version of the character with a super smooth sculpt, automotive paint, and high-gloss finish.
In addition to the large-format edition, Buff Monster will also release two editions in concrete featuring different sculpts. The 7.5” version features a cartoony rendition with amped-up facial features while the 5” version offers a more refined sculpt. Riffing off the concept of constant and inevitable decay (melting), each of the concrete figures has been intentionally damaged, with missing chunks in varying areas from piece to piece. Most of the concrete figures will feature spray-paint deco, both in solid colors and graffiti style designs.
