Separated at Birth???


I've been in love with Thomas Han's Pushers since I first laid eyes on the un-painted prototypes at last year's SDCC. I am very hopeful that some day soon, I will have both of these beautiful little angels from the City of Angels (East Side: MPK) on my desk. Produced by Munky King, it looks most likely that these guys will be released at this year's San Diego Comic Con.


I also noticed another toy hit the market this week from Vinyl Collectibles. These guys held this interesting contest where artists would submit their ideas for new toys and the winner would have theirs go into production.


This year's winner is "Combo" by French artists Higone & Codel. Don't know about you, but there appears to be some striking similarities from the wings and the masks in both sets of toys. I'm not here to judge one way or the other...just to observe and report the similarities. I think both toys are beautiful and have even ordered the Higone & Codel version as well. There could be some kind of masked angel in literature or pop culture that i'm not familiar with that both of these guys are based on. I thought I remembered seeing a similiar Sanrio Character, but I checked and there wasn't one.



My personal favorite will have to be Thomas' Pushers. From the detailed paint application to the colorways, this set is looking to kill it when released! I can hardly wait!! For more information and a very interesting article with Thomas Han, check out Vinyl Pulse
