REMARKS: "I recently completed a custom of the Bake-Kujira originally by the supremely talented Candie Bolton and produced by TAG. The figure stands 10.5" tall and is made of soft Japanese vinyl.
In keeping with my space theme, I have resculpted the fins into a moon texture, and turned the clouds entwined around his body into nebula.
The Bake-Kujira in Japanese folklore is a vengeful spirit of a whale. But after the destruction of earth, the spiritual beings were thrust into outer-space. Forced to acclimate to his new environment he became "Uchū Kujira" or space whale. Freely roaming through the cosmos and no longer feeling particularly vengeful he visits whatever planets he finds and harasses the locals." - Shared Sam (UNCLE) (IG @unclestudio).
