New Orleans-based designer Compton III officially launched his first art toy—Spy Boy—this past Saturday at Sneaker Politics. The original resin figure celebrates the Mardi Gras Indians, a lesser known part of New Orleans’ world-famous cultural event.  The debut Legacy Orange edition stands 9.5” tall and is limited to 300 pieces  to commemorate the city’s 300th anniversary.  Spy Boy is available direct from Space Broccoli for $350.00.

Having seen the figure in person twice at Five Points and DesignerCon, Spy Boy has an undeniable presence thanks to the ornate yet personable sculpt and its commanding physical size.  While the figure stands 9.5” tall, it’s even wider still and much larger than one might expect.  The design blends ceremonial tradition with a modern, urban character design punctuated with an out of sight surprise—a gloved hand blending into the rear of the Indian dress. Art Toys are in part, about delivering the unexpected, with style.  Spy Boy represents.
