Luke Chueh x Munky King – Possessed 10th Anniversary (5.4)


The waiting is over.  Munky King will release the Possessed – 10th Anniversary vinyl from Luke Chueh  on Friday (5.4) at 12 PM PDT from their online store for $80. It will also be available from select retailers including myplasticheart, Rotofugi, 3DRetro, IamRetro, LIFT Detroit, Minty Fresh, Strangecat Toys, Umi Toys Hawaii and Collect and Display

The revisited and revised edition of Possessed—a true art toy classic—features small tweaks and improvements to the OG including sculpted facial details, articulation in the right shoulder, reworked wire mechanism, and elimination of the gradient sprays for a cleaner appearance.  Up close and personal these look great, the blood on the hands is bright, vivid and really pops.
