Every once in awhile, a figure catches us completely off guard. While named as a follow-up edition to the Crystal Blood Tayū released back in April, the new Oni-Tayū (太夫) Smoke and Mirrors Edition (12″)from Tokyo Jesus and Clutter is, in reality, a completely different figure and tour de force.
While the Oiran’s overall shape remains the same, Tokyo Jesus has sculpted a breathtaking skeleton or perhaps more accurately, a network of interconnected skulls and bones. Double cast in an outer layer of translucent smoke resin and GID resin for the inner skeleton, the new figure conveys Tokyo Jesus’s aesthetic in a clear, powerful, and perhaps unmatched manner.
Limited to 50 pieces, the Oni-Tayū (太夫) Smoke and Mirrors Edition will be available for pre-order on Friday (9.13) at 11 AM PDT from Clutter for $350. Handcrafted by Clutter Studios in New York, these standout figures will begin to ship on November 30th, 2019.
