Firecat is back and this time he really means it. It’s been nine years since the fire-breathing beast shook the scene with the OG vinyl figure from Joe Ledbetter. In the span in between, he’s grown in stature (11”) and power. He’s shed his cute, round appearance for a lean, mean, towering presence. Firecat makes a big, smoldering impact with a wide-open, bellowing flame burst. Focused on destruction, his symmetrical fire now rises above his ears.
Badder and better, the new figure is an important milestone for Joe Ledbetter –- his first self-produced vinyl art toy. On a shelf or on your desk, Firecat demands your attention with Joe’s signature 2.5D look popping off the surroundings. Pick yours up exclusively at Joeledbetter.com for $99 (+ s/h). On the horizon? Lava Cat, Ice Cat, Fire-Catzilla – not necessarily in that order.
