With its recent releases, Mighty Jaxx has gotten really creative with their toy promos. Rather than simply, teasing and then revealing their new Smart Bomb figure from Jason Freeny, they’ve put together an elaborate WWII-era back story focused on a secret weapons project designed not to obliterate the masses, but rather… enlighten them. The Smart Bomb drops on Saturday (3.10) at 7 AM PST with pricing yet to be announced.
Based on his original sculpture (2013), the Smart Bomb adds a brain pattern to an old-school bomb with prominent fuse. The piece immediately reminds us of Emilio Garcia’s Brainade, albeit drawing on a much older weapon for inspiration.
