Filipino artist Otto Björnik is set to unleash a new version of his take on the Chinese jiangshi (‘Hopping Vampire’) mindless horde. A smaller, 3″ version of the original, the Bai Chu mini debuts in a sharp red, blue and black edition. The figure will be available in two versions — one with the traditional paper talisman and one without.
Bai Chu’s cute and slightly creepy vibe is perfectly tailored for the Jiangshi as popularized by HK cinema. Slapstick horror for the win.
Editions of 30, the Bai Chu Mini resin art toys (3″) with and without talisman will be available on Tuesday, July 19, 2022 at 7 AM PDT from Otto Björnik’s site for $85 or $170 for the set.
