For the Mallrats 25th Anniversary Show at Gallery1988, Chogrin x The Beast Brothers deliver fun retro action figures of Jay and Silent Bob with the Los Mallrats Prototype Edition resin art toys. Riffing off the title of Kevin Smith’s cult classic film, the figures reimagine the drug-dealing duo as actual mall rats complete with mouse ear style hats and rat tails. Riding the action figure concept, Silent Bob includes a vhs tape with incriminating home videos while Jay comes with a handy bag of snoochie boochie noochies. The new figures are the latest releases in the illustrious Mexican Bootlegs line.
Cast in basic gray, the 1 of 1 Prototype Edition figures live up to the Prototype moniker. The long, realistic pink rat tails add a bit of grimy edge to the overall cartoony designs. Presented with a streamlined riff on the classic blister and card packaging, Los Mallrats come on minimal cards and custom acrylic ‘blisters’. The creators have mentioned that this might be just the beginning with possible future editions and characters under consideration.
The Los Mallrats Prototype Edition (1/1) resin art toys will be available as part of the Mallrats 25th Anniversary Show from Gallery 1988’s web shop on Friday (9.25) at 12 PM PDT.
