Lulubell Toys Cinco de Mayo RealxHead Blue Fade Set Drops!!

RxH Blue Fade Set

Let the madness begin!! The RealxHead Blue Fade set is finally here! Contrary to Amy's description below, a prototype of the set was shown much earlier than the blue fade Cat Kid. Ever since we spied it at least a year ago, we have waited patiently for it to become reality. I'm pretty sure fellow Skullbrainers Scott and Jason make monthly trips to Shinto Gangu begging Mori to produce this set. I have no idea how many pieces Lulubell Toys will have, but I do know they are the only game in the US for this set so you can bet all the RxH collectors old and even cursory will be trying to get it. Good luck. Just get in back of me, please.....Lol...

In celebration of our Tucson roots, the long awaited blue fade set from Real x Head will drop stateside on Cinco de Mayo exclusively at Lulubell. Cinco de Mayo is a huge deal in Tucson, and the town literally goes into celebration mode by 5pm. The RxH blue fade set has been one of the most anticipated sets for RxH since the colorway first reared it's lovely head last December. The blue fade set consists of the Mutant Evil & Mutant Head figures, cast in clear vinyl with a turquoise blue spray fade.

So what's the big deal with this colorway? RxH first debuted this fade on the Catkid sculpt, and rumors (desires?) of this fade set quickly followed. Clear vinyl also presents several challenges itself. Clear vinyls are actually made by adding specific chemicals to the standard vinyls to make them translucent. These additives change the properties of the vinyl a bit, making it softer and more easily distorted when being pulled out of the mold. In this particular run for example, less then half made it to finished product.

The blue fade Evil & Head retail for $60 each, and drop on the 5th of May at 5pm Pacific Time. We are under strict orders NOT to pre-sell or reserve this set, so my apologies to my beloved Lulu Lovers group, but you will have to go through the web at 5pm tomorrow for this one. Sorry, bribes not accepted (I've gotten a few entertaining offers already!)

Good luck!
