3DRetro has announced the new vinyl figure from artist Juan Muniz Felipe. The Felipe vinyl figure is brought to life from the artist's "Uh Oh" painting. It features five multi-color balloons and stands in at 9.5-inches in height.
Juan states: “We often wear a second skin in daily life or at work and the ‘skin’ doesn’t reveal much of our true self. The ‘mask’ I draw is a blank stare and depending on the situation, can convey humor, doubt or irony. There is Felipe, dragging his bleeding heart, looking back to ensure it’s still there as if it’s a security blanket. There is Felipe, sitting on a chunk of earth with an anvil tied to his fishing pole. And there is Felipe, looking down at the bullet that moments ago pierced him, then popped out his back, walked around to the front and held up a sign that reads, “I’m sorry.”
San Diego Comic Con attendees will be able to purchase Felipe for the first time at the 3DRetro/DKE Booth #5045. The figure will be limited to a run of 200 pieces worldwide. It will retail for $55.00. Also, Juan will be in attendance to sign figures, prints and other special items for fans on July 10th 2015 from 3PM to 4PM and again July 11th 2015 from 1PM to 2PM .
