A Closer Look at Tim Biskup x Gama-Go's DEATHBOT (Gama-Gold Edition / SDCC 2008) from Ninyoushi
Featured here are images of Gama-Go's DEATHBOT wooden-figure, as designed by Tim Biskup (based on his art / Scroll to the bottom to view), and sculpted by Dave Higgins, with box-art designed by Antony Sewell. Produced by Ningyoushi, this is the SDCC Gama-Gold edition (Limited to 400pcs), released circa San Diego Comic-Con 2008, and I have one now available online HERE priced at US$35.00 (Price excludes shipping+handling), for your purchasing considerations :)
Standing 5-inches tall, the predominantly wood-made body features internal armature (I assume) which allows articulated/bendy arms, legs and neck. Item comes complete with box (Good condition). Figure never been displayed and had remained in the box, except for take these photographs, thanks.
I have not removed the figure from its plastic-tray though, and cannot vouch for it's articulation or structural integrity though ... (FYI: The pics directly below are from my own figure, not the one for sale :p).
I adore that the packaging itself is "related" to / storied along with figure, with the window-front showcasing the character "breaking free" thru the "wall" (box cover), while the inside print would work swell as a actual backdrop/background for the figure to be displayed against, IMHO.
I personally "interactivity" in packaging, and how it can function beyond just being a receptacle to hold the collectible, and of course to tempt us collectors/customers looking at it on the toy-retail shelves!
The "Deathbot" figure itself has gone thru a few incarnations/editions thru the years too, starting with Regular Edition, then there was the Suit Edition ("Deathbot in a Black Suit"), a "Deathtective", the Undertaker Edition and even a "Lederhosen" version - Released between 2007 to 2008.
