For many of us, PUSHEAD is the only reason to come to SDCC. Fans from around the world came far and wide in hopes of getting a single piece of PUSHEAD goodness. PUSHEAD did not disappoint. Personally, of all the years that PUSHEAD has been doing events at SDCC, I think this was the best by far. It was a tribute to someone who started it all: Take-Shit. Takeshi created the Finkshit which is the original Fight Figure that launched an entire genre of vinyl toys from Japan. It was an honor to have him attend SDCC this year. There were painted and un-painted Finkshits available for the first time since the original releases so many years ago. But these had the original scar on the back of his head. There were also HP Cococrocs, marbled pirates and two flavors of pink Skullbrains. Also present to torture the fans were a GID H.Saigansho Mecha Gorilla, plus a grey painted Mecha Gorilla 2 that matched the colorway of one of the Finkshits. All grail material. Amazing, unbelievable. All of this in addition to a marble pink Pirate and the purple marbled Rebel Captain. Not to mention the PUSHEAD x NIKE SB Dunk Lows. Truly overwhelming. If you are a hardcore PUSHEAD fan, this was the SDCC not to miss.
