Date : Thursday July 12th 2012
Location : San Diego Comic Convention Hall G TOY TOKYO Booth #5336
Time : 4:20pm
What : The Pushead Event
Special Guest : TAKESHIT !
This year, Pushead is stepping back in time a bit, and bringing out his old friend TAKESHIT, bassist extraordinaire of CocoBat, for his first appearance at SDCC! And for this special appearance, Pushead was able to get TAKESHIT to pull out of retirement, the figure that started it all, the FINKSHIT! That's right, the first underground DIY soft vinyl fight figure, that inspired the creation of Secret Base 4 years later. Plus, not only would the FinkShit be rising out of retirement, for this one time appearance after 15 years, it appears that when the original FINKSHIT head was sculpted (for the promo variation of Pushead's 'Race to Hell' tin car), there were 2 different head variations made in the wax cast. One without a scar (which become the production figure) and the other with a SCAR.
The FINKSHIT head with the SCAR never saw the light….until now at SDCC!
Also, after last years extremely successful 'ANDY' SkullWing, Pus dug down into that retirement vault, and found a way to convince Hiddy of Secret Base (old friend of FINKSHIT) owner, to pull the SkullBrain out of retirement too! ANDY got to work and created a very limited dark gray & glow marbled vinyl GRIM SkullBrain with a clear grey 'squishee' outer head and for perhaps the first time….skullMantis arms! Comes with a header card featuring lettering by Pushead over ANDY's design.
Last year's NYCC saw the birth of the Pushead + Usugrow RebelCaptain, and a few were slightly bummed, it wasn't at SDCC. So, just for SDCC, there will be a beautiful dark purple & glow marbled vinyl version, with a nice gold skullPirate's Eye tampo on the back.
These are just a few of the items that toyBot studios has been able to scrape out of the man himself, with a few snaps for good measure, that will be available at the Pushead SDCC event.
With even more surprises rumored to be in store! Come out and meet Takeshit, get an autograph on a CocoBat release, pick up a FINKSHIT SCAR or just say Konnichiwa! The annual event just keeps getting better!!
