DARKSIDE K.X1 at Coin Rides Game #3

DARKSIDE-Coin-Ride-1

With a pre-order beginning on Monday May 16th 2016 (I'm assuming that's the 15th if you're in the ET of the US), Fools Paradise will be offering up the DARKSIDE K.X1 at Coin Rides Game #3 for pre-order. Yes...some might think it's a scantily-clad lady dressed up as Darth Vader, riding in a coin-operated T.I.E. Fighter...and they'd probably be right. The nearly 12-inch tall piece is made of vinyl and PVC. It's made to order and will be limited to run of 500 pieces. The pre-order window will close on May 26th 2016. You'll be able to pre-order one for $269 plus $30 for global shipping.

 

The Crazy Barber “Benji” Pre-Order

Crazy-Barber-Benji-1

Fools Paradise will begin accepting pre-order for The Crazy Barber "Benji" figure beginning on Monday May 9th 2016 at Noon ET (if I got the time zone conversion correct). From Fools Paradise x JPX x Boy Pakora, the 12-inch tall handcrafted resin figure is slated to begin shipping in mid-May 2016. There will only be 25 pieces released. It'll be priced at $249.00 plus $30.00 for Global Shipping.

Is it me, or does the character sort of resemble Daffy Duck wearing Hulk Hogan's mustache and Mickey Mouse's gloves?

 

Boba K.Slave at Coin Rides Game #2

FP-Boba-K-Slave-Coin-Ride-1

Fools Paradise has announced the pre-order details for their Boba K.Slave at Coin Rides Game #2 piece. The 12-inch tall will be made of vinyl and PVC and features "Boba Fett" riding a "Slave I" coin operated ride. The piece is priced at $269.00 plus $20.00 Global EMS shipping. The pre-order period for the made to order figure will end on February 6th 2016, with the finished pieces scheduled to begin shipping around April 2016.

I won’t be a Hero, Tim

Fools-Paradise-I-Wont-Be-a-Hero-2

The newest art piece from Fools Paradise is named I won't be a Hero, Tim. This made-to-order vinyl and PVC figure is currently available to pre-order for $269.00 plus $20.00 for Global EMS Shipping. The pre-order period ends on December 7th 2015, and the final figure will begin shipping in Q1 of 2016.

I won't be a Hero, Tim features a 10.5-inch tall Bat Lowfool sitting down and getting all tatted up by the 7.5-inch tall Tim. I hope it's fairly obvious that the Tim in this piece is Tim Burton...and he even includes a head that appears to be straight out of The Nightmare Before Christmas. Just an excellent take on a character that we've seen a million different times over the years.
