I recently received my coveted Pusfan 10th Anniversary Skull Pirate celebrating 10 years of Pushead fandom. Happy Anniversary Pusfan!!! Here's to another 10 years of Pusfan-dom!! I couldn't wait until this guy got here and he sure did not disappoint!! By far the best Skull Pirate in the series. Seriously, in another league. With this amazing metallic blue color and gold and green highlights, it's meant to look like a Pushead handpaint which are extremely rare and very expensive. Essentially, it's a poor man's, but big fan's Pushead production handpaint! All we can really say is WOW and Thank YOU to Pushead, David and Jon!! You guys rock!
Not part of the Pusfan celebration, but a celebration nonetheless are the latest Skullwings or "punkwings" released a little while ago at Superfestival. Beautiful clear vinyl with some 80's flourescent highlights which bring me back to Jr. High. They come with matching plaid plushie figures inside to complete the Punk attitude. What I like most about this release is that there seemed to be enough to go around. When there is ample supply, there is not much of an aftermarket. Flippers don't make as much money, but hopefully Secret Base and Pushead did. Hell, I was even able to get one below retail. It's a refreshing change of pace in this frenetic toy land.
Looking forward to the next Skullwing whatever color. More production "handpainted" Skull Pirates or clears are always welcome!
