Check out the ad pics below, along with a splendid poster image (his prints are fantastically awesome) and the story behind BONE HEADS!

STORY: "Everyone knew everyone in the future -- not in the real world, but on the internet. The Cognitive, a virtual reality helmet designed by the Vertex Corp., offered the full virtual living experience. Nicknamed the Bonehead by the internet, it was the final world in the wearable tech war. Plugging in with a Bonehead mean you'd never have to leave the internet ever again. And everyone could live happily ever after.

But then... the jailbreak version of Boneheads started showing up."
STORY CONTINUES: "A reconfiguration in the system allowed people to spy on other Bonehead users. You could even take over delivery drones and took it for a joyride. You could stop a Smartcar just by looking at it. The Bonehead could only hack and control Vertex Corp's tech or items. The problem was Vertex owned everything. If you wanted to, you could find all the codes for the city's power grid and messed the whole thing up. The potential for chaos was limitless.

Who will stop them?
Who could stop them?"

TOYSREVIL Reviews: BITCH by Luke Chueh x Munky King

PRODUCT PRESS for BITCH – Original Colorway by Luke Chueh: "Not ones to shy away from controversy, Luke Chueh and Munky King proudly present "Bitch". This original colorway stays true to Luke's 2007 painting with hand-sprayed gradients on grey wolves and a white sheep fleece. The 3-piece set allows interchangeability between the other editions to maximize your collecting pleasure."
In an edition of 500 with a MSRP of US$69 - the item has since been released and available to purchase here on munkyking.com. There is also a TOY + PRINT combo set available here for US$80.

This review was made possible by the generosity of Munky King. The above review was recorded on my MacBook (via Photobooth) and edited in iMovie. Further still images can be seen HERE on FB - Hope you'll enjoy the video, and that you'll enjoy the toy as much as I did!
