Watsd x Funny Model Club — Gramps


It's been about five months since Funny Model Club opened pre-orders for their first, since sold-out art toy, Boss by Watsd (Watchara Boonpokkrong) .  Now the artist and brand are back with Gramps, a funny figure featuring an old-school gamer (or is that just plain OLD) with adjusting to new-fangled gaming with his very own hand-held console that bears a striking similarity to the Switch. With his over-the-top design featuring vintage tube TV  head, 70's era gaming shirt, short shorts, knee high socks and more Gramps is instantly recognizable as a throwback to the 8-bit era and bound to spark more than few gaming tall tales.  And perhaps a few confused looks from Millennials. While the cat-piloted Boss 'bot and Gramps are at first very different, the sense of humor, bright color palette, and retro vibe bring them together as two expressions of a universe we'd like to revisit often.

Limited to 199 pieces,  the traditionally-sculpted Gramps (10.25") resin art toy is available for pre-order for $111.50 direct from Funny Model Club's FB page and their retailer network which includes myplasticheart, Strangecat Toys, PlayToysForever (TW), Tomenosuke (JP) and Toy Galleria (SG).  The figure is slated to ship the second quarter of 2020.
