    Just picked up 2 Alavakas! They'll go nicely with my black unpainted.

    How long is the open-order open for?

    this is an open edition and the blank whites will be available until the molds go dead...so...a LONG time. the price could go up over the years if production costs, postage, exchange rate, etc, etc go up but for now this will be an easy way to get the sculpt at an amazing price.

    also just to set expectations for everyone this is a straight up no frills release. there is no bag, no header and sometimes no assembly :twisted: you may have to actually get out the hairdryer and put it together yourself.

    gargamel did the same thing way back in the day with a few of their sculpts.

    What started out as a resin cast has moved into sofubi. The first painted version of Jizo-Anarcho available December 5th @12 PM EST.

    [​IMG]

    It has been told in ancient Japan that the souls of children who die prematurely are sent to the underworld as punishment for causing great sorrow to their parents. They reside at Sai no Kawara, the river of souls in purgatory, where they pray for Buddha's compassion while building small stone towers that signify the weight of their loss on their parents.
    But underworld demons, answering to the command of the old hag Shozuka no Baba, surprise the children each day, scatter their stone towers and beat them mercilessly with iron clubs. It is the renegade Bodhisattva, Jizo-Anarcho who comes to their rescue by befriending the children and hiding them in the sleeves of his robe from the demons when they next arrive.
    The evil attacks of Shozuka no Baba and her disciples come to an end when Jizo-Anarcho confronts them and easily parrys every single blow they try to cast upon him. Exhausted from their attacks, Shozuka no Baba and her minions fall to their knees in frustrated defeat. The compassion and friendship provided by Jizo-Anarcho liberates the souls of the children and they are set free as is the grief of their mourning parents. This toy immortalizes the final message sent by Jizo-Anarcho to Shozuka no Baba and her demons as he leaves the banks of Sai no Kawara. With punk rock compassion he turns over his shoulder as he walks away, raises his finger and says…”You are evil and miserable because you are captives of your own ill will. Fuck off and live! May all beings be free.”

    As a writer and literature major, I really appreciate the backstories, just finished reading the Apalala one. Your writing and figures are super polished, which is why I try to grab almost every release these days. Did you choose to do the clear blue release based on him going into a clear blue pond? "He made his home in a clear blue pond in Udhyana."

    Thank you...wanted the first 2 Apalala releases to be blue somehow since he is a water dragon but know that eventually non water colors will make their way into the releases.

    I skipped out on the clear blue version because i didn't want to be greedy. Wanted other ppl to have a shot at one. That being said i have the first release version done in mixed GID and blue marbling. He looks fantastic!
