Obskure_skull_arttoy_012
Barcelona artist Marcos Lorenzo of Some Strange Things has just released his new Obskure Death is Punk (25 pcs, 6.7”) figures —initially released at ToyCon UK in April—over on his webshop for 100 Euros (~ $112) + s/h. While previous Obskure releases have featured a female face/torso inset into the bust style platform, this edition stands apart from the others with a 3D printed skull and skeletonDeath seduces you with her backside and brings things to an end with her cold gaze. As with the other releases, the details are impressive from the various metal accents including the throat choker to the diabolic-anarkist logo on the rear of the jacket.

Codec Zombie -- Melting Cells (5.29)

18580584_246611792486728_5202037137347706880_n

Codec Zombie continues his exploration of the dangers of nuclear power with his upcoming Melting Cells resin sculpture (9”) which is scheduled to drop on Monday, May 29th at 7 AM PDT from the artist’s web shop .  Where his previous Feeding Plants focused on the larger environmental effects of nuclear reactors, Melting Cells ratchets up the message by confronting the personal horrors of radiation exposure.

Beautifully sculpted, Melting Cells features a two-headed victim of fallout.  The nearly all-white piece is punctuated by bright red  deformations on the hands and across the heads.  As with Feeding Plants, the new piece  evokes a sense of reflective grace in the face of tragedy. It’s a beautiful portrait of a terrible circumstance.

Melting Cells will ship in custom packaging which includes a thermoformed clear plastic top featuring a block pattern inspired by the distinctive graphite-block design of the Soviet RBMK reactors (Chernobyl and others).  Limited to 15 pieces, this will be the first and only edition of Melting Cells. As with Feeding Plants, there will be no additional colorways.  The single edition approach is commendable and rather unusual.  It celebrates the artist’s original intent and enhances collectability.

Jason Freeny x Mighty Jaxx – DC Golden Age XXRAY (5.27)

 XXRAY_GoldenAge_Homeblock_Product_2s

Mighty Jaxx, Jason Freeny and DC are going retro for the next XXRAY collection.  The DC Golden Age XXRAY figures feature the OG appearance/uniforms of The Flash, Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman and Green Lantern as seen in the original comics published during the Golden Age time period of comics (late 1930’s to early 50’s). While each of these look sharp, it’s fun to see the distinctly different original appearance of the Flash with hard-hat style helmet and the Green Lantern with a rather sorcerer-like vibe.

The DC Golden Age XXRAY toys drop this Saturday (5.27) for pre-order at 7 AM PDT from Mighty Jaxx.
