SMELTER SKELTER by T. Wei X Unruly Industries Seen at #SDCC2019 & Available Now for Online Pre-orders
Since my earlier introductory post, the melting vintage-50s-styled wind-up toy-robot with a skeletal-bot underneath known as "Smelter Skelter" designed by @tw.ei has since launched for pre-orders online here, as well on display at the Unruly Booth #2649 at San Diego Comic Con 2019 (18-21 July)!
Exceedingly unique piece and yet tugs at your nostalgia-nodules for that instant "TOY-WANT", as far as I am concerned, and it certainly has pressed my buttons! Or in this particular case, wound-up my desires to own this crazy piece!
Priced at US$100 (Limit of 2 per person), with an estimated arrival of Feb 2020 - Apr 2020, the images are of a "new prototype" featuring the designs of T. Wei, with a sculpt by Brenton Henriques, with paint by Diana Loffler.
This PVC + vinyl make collectible stands 6.3 inches tall x 5-inch width x 5.3-inch depth.
Here are some more images to be had, including a size comparison pic, which scoops Doktor A joining the Unruly Industries line-up with his "Bella Delamere"? #NICE
