Launching December 7th @ RTotofugi is the Toy Release & Art Exhibit 'Going Places" by Shag (exhibiting thru January 6th, 2013). The online preview showcases a multitude of lifestyle depictions in a retro-flashback to the Beat Generation of sleek automobiles, swanky bachelor-pads and groovy clubs, populated by Skull-heads!

And with that, Shag as well introduces "Skull Boy", the second toy in the Shag Racers series produced by Squibbles Ink + Rotofugi. Designed by Josh (Shag) Agle with a figure sculpted by Shinbone Creative and car sculpted by Joe Somers of Squibbles Ink, the Skull Boy is 6.5 inches tall and 7.25 inches long.

This first release (aka the Gallery Prototype Edition) is an edition of 100 pieces and is available for pre-orders to attendees of the opening weekend of Shag's new exhibit, Goin' Places, at Rotofugi Gallery, with remaining pieces being mae available for pre-order from the Rotofugi website on Monday, December 10th. Priced at US$90 each, Skull Boys are estimated to be delivered in late January/early February 2013.

Also note that the Gallery Prototype Edition will be followed with a "Standard Edition" release and at least three other variations to be released at special events throughout the year. So perhaps you can consider filling up your "toy garage", like the montage of vehicle paintings posted above!
