Michelle Valigura and Amanda Visell, of Switcheroo, have released a pair of new hand-sculpted, hand-cast, and hand-painted resin figures.

So this is just so confusing on so many different levels. The figure is named Lover Boy by the artist Okedoki. He's basically a black Squidward (from SpongeBob SquarePants) wearing what appears to be Pee-wee Herman's attire, except a red bow-tie is swapped out for a red heart on his lapel.
Since my brain is an 80's and 90's pop culture nerd vacuum, I thought...maybe this is supposed to be Billy Ocean. He had a 1984 song (which I'm going to make you watch at the bottom of this post) called Loverboy. Really, if you haven't seen the video, or it's been a while, you should (re)watch it. It's like someone gave the music video director a bunch of money and hallucinogens, and he locked himself in a room for 2 days watching nothing but the Mos Eisley Cantina scene and The Dark Crystal. Then remembered he had to incorporate Billy Ocean into this madness somehow.
Oh yeah...back to the figure, the Lover Boy (Original Version) is a limited edition of 8 pieces and will be released through Collect and Display at ToyConUK (April 29th-30th) for $720.00.
Dude...just watch this...

Bigmantoys is dropping the 13th edition of Treegarr, released for the first time with a rubber mask, and real metal machete! Standing 5.5 inches of solid, heavy PU resin (that doesn't mean it smells), the figure features 3 points of articulation, a detachable rubber mask, and a machete cast in real English pewter. Each machete has been weathered and finished by hand - these are strictly NOT FOR KIDS! You'll shoot your eye out...or cut your finger off.
The Treegarr the 13th. Jason VoorTrees takes Etheria figure drops Friday April 14th 2017 at 7PM ET via the above link for $75.00.
Chopped to pieces and burned to ashes, the spirit of Treegarr fought evil spirits from accross the universe to reach the world of the living yet again. At the portal to our world, he met another silent but unstoppable killer called Jason who hacked at the bark of his etherial form with a machete, the two of them continued to struggle with each other as they passed through to our world.
A bloody tree where Jason had slaughtered many by the lake, was possessed by both spirits. Neither able to understand what they had now become, adapted to their new combined form. With Treegarr in full control when the mask is removed, and Jason taking over when the mask is worn.
