"The Donald Trump Show” will officially drop on Saturday May 28th 2016 at Noon PST over at TimebanditsWatches.com for $75.00. The 3.75-inch tall limited edition (non-articulated) hand cast resin figure comes carded with artwork produced by Jonathan Stephens (TIMEBANDITS).
Of course, the card back qualifies that the figure isn't in support of Trump or any other candidate and it's "a satirical critique of the entire political circus and the times we live in". Just like we've seen various other presidential candidates turned into action figures over the past several elections.
BigManToys is dropping a stack of hand-painted, home-made 3D printed figures tonight - Friday May 20th 2016 - at Midnight London Time (7PM ET). These are being produced for hardcore Puppet Master, Double Dragon, and Mortal Kombat fans - they've been inspired by those series, of course. The designs are all one-off pieces using the same sculpts that were used in recent Bigmantoys minifigure releases, but double, or triple the size (between 4 and 6 inches tall). A lot of effort has been put into making these feel like hollow, hard vinyl. The figures have been smoothed and strenghtened through a series of labor-intensive processes and painted to perfection - hence the super-limited release. Look for them to be priced around $30.00 to $50.00 each.
It's the time of the four year election cycle where we get art toys based on political figures. “The Donald Trump Show” is a TIMEBANDITS collaboration with toy maker/customizer ToddAction and sculpted by David Arshawsky. The 3 ¾” limited edition (non-articulated) hand cast resin figure comes fully carded with artwork produced by Jonathan Stephens / TIMEBANDITS. An official drop date will be released soon, but it appears they are targeting mid-May.
