General Skullo and The Kyoufuoctopus

2heads bettern1

"TWO HEADS ARE BETTER THAN ONE"  or so the story goes. They met in 1956 at Paradise Ranch aka Area 51 millitary testing facility in southern Nevada. The Skulloctopus was a survivor of a flying saucer crash thought to have come from the planet Mars and General Kyoufu, a bio-cyborg soldier the government was experimenting on to create the ultimate killing machine. It was a match made in Hell and to make the most of it they exchanged heads as a symbol of their alliance before escaping into the moonlit desert.

Plaseebo is pleased to announce the release of a collaboration with CannibalkaijuGeneral Skullo and The Kyoufuoctopus. This mash-up of "Skulloctopus" and "General  Kyoufu" figures is an Ultra Limited edition of just 5 sets that will be made available through Plaseebo on Friday March 12th, 2010 for $195 per set.

The 3.5" tall Kyoufuoctopus has 2 internal motion activated color changing LED units (painted by Michael Pro of Cannibalkaiju). Bob has painted each of his 5 figures in a slightly different color scheme with various brain and arm inserts that can be seen through the clear part of the skull and arm. Both figures are made from clear vinyl produced in Japan.

Starting this Friday (December 18th), Plaseebo is offering an ultra limited Skulloctopus collaboration featuring the work of Matt Walker (Dead Pre$idents). Using high end specialty automotive paints, Matt has put his own spin on the Skulloctopus figure.

Matt's paint work on this edition, in which he lays down multiple transparent tones, is nothing short of MAGICAL. These figures also feature a "Special" ultra fine holographic mini flake embedded into the clear coat that gives off a prism effect in different lighting conditions.

Happy Thanksgiving from Plaseebo

deathpanzer tday parade med

Bob Conge from Plaseebo Custom has sent along the following holiday greetings.

I would like to be able to build this custom piece as a 50 foot inflatable to fly in Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade in NYC.

Perhaps if people were confronted with a less heroic vision of the reality of War, we might find a solution to conflict more worthy of our position at the top of the food chain. Or are we destined to always be little more than well equipped Neanderthals?

Happy Thanksgiving from Plaseebo.
