This photo was posted on Kubrick World by Meary. It's for Tim Biskup's Alphabeast Calli Kubrick figure, which will be available at San Diego Comic Con at the Toy Tokyo table. The ad is from Juxtapoz magazine. Look for the figures to sell around $20 each.
Fafi is a well-known French graffiti artist who has also taken the fine art and designer toy scene by storm. Her paintings and drawings of her funny, sexy girls can be seen adorning walls, on canvas or styling clothing.
Necessaries Toy Foundation had their Fafi Irina figure in the works for over 2 years. It’s been a highly anticipated figure since it was originally announced. Considering there are not many Fafi pieces available (other than the Sony capsule toys), all of her fans have clamored for the release.
The box the Irina figure comes packaged in is chocked full of Fafi artwork. There is a drawing of Irina in front of various graffiti. The box does not have a display window, so even though it’s nice to look at, you’ll need to display the figure outside of the box.
Irina is an 11” tall (on one knee) rotocast vinyl figure. She includes 2 accessories – a baseball cap and a tiara. Monster5 (Tequilla, El Panda, Afroman) did the sculpting on this figure. There are two versions, or colorways, of the Irina figure. The Pale version is limited to 800 pieces worldwide, while the Tan (or Colette version) Irina is limited to 200 pieces. For purposes of this review, we looked at the Pale version.

The figure is limited to 1,500 pieces and sells for $44.99. The "Chest of Souls" accessory does look pretty cool.
Hmm...exactly what does this cryptic message on David Horvath's website mean? We all know about Mr. Uglydoll's obsession with Mothman...but could this mean a Mothman figure? We'll just have to wait and see.
