In honor of Vinyl Pulse 10th Anniversary, Itokin Park created these exclusive Space Mode Men in VP signature colors. I was very fortunate and grateful to score this guy. I am a huge fan of Itokin Park and I have never been able to get my hands on these little space men until now. They are smaller than I thought they would be. Just over 3 inches tall which is the perfect size. The clean Play Mobil aesthetic with the futuristic design and camo paint job makes this little guy an instant classic.

I've been a fan of Rich Montanari aka Mutant Vinyl Hardcore long before he was making toys. I've also been a fan of Skinner's long before he became a full-time artist. I believe I might have even helped them do their first collaboration together on a run of Ollies back in 2011. Day of the SKINNER. So to see both of them as world class artists doing their thing, making toys and art is just amazing and fulfilling. Both of them are such great guys. Which brings me to this beast. It's a collaboration between MVH and SKINNER called Krawluss. It's actually the first Krawluss I've had the fortunate opportunity to score and it's painted in my favorite homage to Dokuro King. Standing 14" tall with spikes, two heads, a sword, skulls, what is there not to like? Keep up the amazing work Rich and Skinner.
