Ahoy! It is seemingly becoming a daily event (and no bad thing) that I can share with you the new release of a vinyl toy or figure and as we grow ever closer to the holiday (and convention) season I’m sure the releases will only continue to appear day by day. Today, more news from the good ship Freeny as perennial collaborators Mighty Jaxx announced they’ll be producing a polystone sculpture of his Friendly Fire original.
At 9″ tall Friendly Fire is a substantial piece and a fitting centrepiece for a collection. Limited to 200 pieces, it’s fairly exclusive too and while I can’t be 100% sure MJ make it seem as though Freeny himself paints each one. I don’t know if that’s the case, but being polystone means painting is a necessary process and it wouldn’t surprise me if each is in fact hand-painted, which is always a big-seller in my book.
I don’t know if it’s just me, but it seems like subverting the whole Disney image, with Mickey taking the most flack, is fairly de rigeur right now- between Ron English, that whole Dismaland thing, historical South Park and this (at the very least) I’m getting a little bored of the whole “Disney are evil” thing. I get it, we’re supposed to hate the big, evil corporation, but I’m just a bit over it, time for something new if you ask me.
Anyway, that’s just my opinion, and in any case if you’re the sort of collector already kitted out with a few Mousemasks, Apocalypse Grin Dunnys and other general Popaganda the Friendly Fire will fit beautifully in your collection. Plus, at $100(£65) direct from source or £90 in th UK it’s not a bank-breaker.
If you want to know more you can check out the Might Jaxx sight here. I’m sur I’ll be back tomorrow with more, plus I have some new articles up my hooked sleeve so as ever, hit like if this article floated your galleon and check back again soon for more. Yarrrr!
