The Visible Man (Version 1) by Unbox Industries - Pre-Orders Begin Feb 6

Unbox Industries has announced the upcoming release of their THE VISIBLE MAN! Scheduled for a pre-order from February 6th, he'll be priced at US$225.00 on, for an end of the month ship-out.

I have been uber-toyxcited for this figure since first featuring it (circa 2014)! And there are more versions to come too!

Scroll down for the product press, and more images!

PRESS: "Unbox are proud to announce the release of their homage TO 2000AD's Frank Hart aka The Visible Man.

Standing 30cm tall and manufactured in soft vinyl, Unbox commissioned Japanese artist and toymaker extraordinaire Takeuchi Yu (@skulltoys) to reinterpret Frank as a ghoulish figure that you may of found on the shelf of a toy shop in the late Seventies.

Each figure has been meticulously hand cast and painted using mold making and vinyl production techniques akin to the process used to make vintage toys decades ago.

Frank is essentially a toy within a toy, his X-ray skin exterior is a soft pliable material that was extremely problematic when trying to dress over the harder interior vinyl figure.

Subsequently a high production failure rate has resulted in a smaller than anticipated run of each edition & a price increase that has been unfortunately unavoidable."
