Today on Proto Monday we’re happy to bring you an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at Ajee’s new Kosplay 2-figure set due to drop in November from ExtendedPlayz. With Kosplay, Ajee continues her stylish use of hard, faceted edges in her sculpting, first seen in her Skullskin figure. This time around she’s created a curious pairing, a female symbolically disguising herself as a skull and a polar bear disguised in Panda coloring (in part because Pandas receive more protection as endangered species). With Ajee’s character design and sculpting, Kosplay delivers a welcome angular look which stands out in a sea of me-too figures featuring bland, smoothly extruded simple 3D shapes.
Courtesy of Ajee and ExtendedPlayz, today’s Proto Monday photo gallery is chock full of goodness including full shots of Ajee’s original clay sculpt of the figures, sketches, multiple design documents including pantone callouts, full photos of the debut black+white edition, the first look at the all-black edition, and the first indication of the GID edition which will feature three different glow colors.
ExtendedPlayz will be showing Kosplay and their previously announced Cody figure (Proto Monday) at NYCC in the Trampt booth (#981). Ajee will make the trip from France and she’ll be bringing some exclusive goodies fresh from her workshop. Bonustoyz, ExtendedPlayz’s older sibling brand, will also be in effect at NYCC and should have some exclusive goodies as well.
