The nascent Thai Art Toy brand JPX—announced at Thailand Toy Expo 2015—has collaborated with Jason Freeny and Mighty Jaxx on a wicked XXRAY-branded dissected version of Tossakan (4”).  While the pervasive demon king from Thailand’s national Ramakien epic is often depicted as a supernatural beast — of multiple faces and arms—Freeny offers a more minimalist, grounded interpretation.  Viewed from the back or side, one might miss the facial features which reveal the fearsome armor-clad warrior’s demonic origins. In keeping with the pared down approach, the sculpt features an additional restrained nod to more traditional visions of the character. The horn on the helmet hosts a pair of  subtly presented, stacked demon heads. While easy to overlook, the mini skulls on the dissected side reward the observant collector.  

JPX is aiming  for a potential TTE 2016 (5.5-5.8) debut of the Tossakan XXRAY. It’ll be interesting to see if it’s an all-black edition as seen here or a painted one. At any rate, this is a really nice crossover design with a new take on an ancient cultural epic.
