The second character from Mikie's ongoing "Yokaiju" line of hand made resin figures, Chochinobake - or the "haunted paper lantern" - features two articulated arms and a clear hair/fire piece that sits on top of the figure. Each Chichinobake comes with a battery powered tea candle that sits inside the figure lighting the hair piece up from underneath.
Designed, sculpted and hand painted by Mikie Graham, Chochinobake was molded and poured by Motorbot of Deadbear Studios. Each figure comes bagged with a header that includes an 8" x 10" mini print and bio story for the character. You'll be able to pick one up for $60.00.
