Erick Scarecrow’s MURAIDA Returns! … as a “mini”? #BRINGIT!
ESC Toy has teased an image along with the hashtags+word; ”#mini #muraida coming…#kaiju #esctoys”!
I would assume that ESC would be resurrecting their character “Muraida” unto a newly resized platform to match their 6.5” tall Little Liberty figures? #NICE!
Stay connected to Instagram @esctoycom for updates.
Designed by Erick Scarecrow, the MURAIDA had been his interpretation of an urban “kaiju” (Japanese word for “Monster”, initially coined in description to Ultraman villains) character creation, who was predominently a villain to the superhero “Dizign” in his “OSK” line (“Old School Kaiju”) - which saw the very first 10-inch tall “Muraida” vinyl figure released in 2008!
One of my toy-regrets of my earlier #toylife, was not owning one figure (of which I only knew-of / blogged about 4 Editions released) when I could afford them then … there’s something about an irradiated spray-can turned giant monster that was pretty cool! AND my Dizigns had needed someone to fight too!
But then again, I do miss that period of toy-dom, when "urban vinyl" designs dominated the landscape, before the advent of pop-culture appropriation :)
Hey I’d wanted “HATCH” too! I am of the believer that it is/are the villain(s) that help define a “hero”, as without them (not counting doing “superhero deeds”, of course), they are just folks “dressed” like a superhero lol
Sure, there was the ULTRA DIZIGN Super-villain to fight with, but tis always awesome to have a “kaiju” to fight lah! hahahahahaha ... Hey! Co e to think of it, wouldn't it be great if ALL the OSK figures make their "return" to the toy-world? It would be awesome to have when a mini-set of smaller sized figures, IMHO ! iWish :)
