TOYSREVIL #TopTenToys2015: No.7 - KIDZILLA by Wetworks x YOII
WHAT IS #TopTenToys2015: "I'd asked for YOUR Top Ten Toys of 2015, and THESE were what you shared with us on TOYSREVIL! I will be featuring your lists on the blog in the month of January, so hit me with your favs via "toysreviler [at] gmail.com" - This post you are reading now, is the #TOYSREVILTopTenToys2015 List!"
Borne from an illustration by New Zealand based illustrator Anna Johnstone AKA Yoii, and manifest unto a 3-dimensional sculpt by Carlo Andrada Cacho AKA Wetworks, this figurine is a brand new resin released in 2015, with this Midnight edition colorway being the first edition dropped circa September at the Singapore Toy Games & Comic Convention, and sold out shortly after!
This particular edition clinches the No.7 spot because it as well included a print featuring the art of you depicting Kidzilla, thereby solidifying the conceptual notion of drawing-to-toy in the dream-step of production in this hollowed lands we call "art toys", and as well capturing a whiff of independent comics and illustrations, IMHO.
Subsequent editions came and sold out as well, and is a splendid addition to the art toy world, along with yet another collaboration: Pugrider (which would have scored high on this list, if I had owned one anyways, without a doubt!)
Cheers and have a swell toy-day ahead!
