dave bondi's akashi


PRODUCT TAG: "From sculptor Dave Bondi (Mr. Bunny, Possessed) comes AKASHI , a playful homage to two of his favorite character icons shot into a particle accelerator and smashed together at the speed of light.  By carefully re-mixing the respective physical features, the resulting toy blurs the boundaries of copyright and unites east and west with a brand new quirky character."

This Super Mario Bros x Mickey Mouse mashup is distributed by DKE Toys (duder looks fab without his cap tho - tres Sopranos for the Vinyl World LOL). The 9-inch tall Akashi is limited to 250 pieces with a SRP of U$65. Also peeped on Bondi's website an intriguing all-PINK colorway of Akashi - variant or testshot? Looks sweet anyways and perhaps may be a more interesting concept rather than a straight-up visual-mix, IMHO. Meanwhile, CLICK THRU for more Akashi-images.

I'd rather watch "The Fly" again instead, thanks.

Wow, that nose looks sort of obscene on the pink version! x)
