Woot! On the ground now in NYC. You want more info and you want it now… Here’s an exclusive first look at a proto of the new A-Type platform figure designed by Andrew Bell and produced by mphlabs. myplascticheart will display the A-type at their NYCC booth (#866). Standing roughly 6-7 inches tall, the A-Type appears game for a difficult challenge — come up with a cool unique shape that hasn’t been done to death and still provide enough generality so artists can adapt it and make it their own.
While the shape starts with the simple idea of incorporating mph’s heart-shaped logo, Andrew’s design touches including the arms, the upturned ‘hands’ and the stubby fangs bring the character to life. The A-Type is reportedly quite flexible display wise and can even hang by it’s hands…. Click through for more pics.
