Behold Domino Jack....!!!! The brand new figure from Paul Kaiju that made his debut at the of Fist Full of Dominoes show at SDCC this year. This guy is my new favorite toy. He's a humanoid robot with a 70's nod to Astro Boy with a giant fist cast in clear vinyl half-painted Kikaida homage. Inside true to his name are some toy jacks. This is one of those toys that I would buy in every colorway until I have like 50. Best toy that Paul produces in my opinion.
UPDATE: PK was kind enough to offer a little backstory on Domino Jack:
Police type Robot sentinel created by the very civilization Dr. Velm Q (now Salamander Joe) betrayed. Put in place to prevent him from escaping Earth and returning home.This in itself causes much turmoil with the creatures that have turned against Velm Q, and the evil robots of the Machine hell.
Martin Ontiveros is one of my favorite artists. So when I walked up to the "Tough Guys Only" booth at SDCC on Preview Night which consists of Bwana Spoons, Kiyoshi Nakazawa, Martin and the Gargamel crew, I was immediately drawn to this handpainted Ollie which is produced by Mutant Vinyl Hardcore. The colors were right and Martin's linework look amazing on this guy. So this Ollie become the very first purchase at SDCC this year. Thanks Martin..!!
