REVIEW: Hell Resin Figure
Patch Together, the folks who turn user submitted designs into resin, vinyl or plush collectibles, has released a resin figure based on the artwork of Vaporotem (Rotem Moshkovitz). Named Hell, the little bunny appears to be intent on crushing that poor little flower.
Hell is a Bormal... an UNHAPPY one too~ He hates the sun, he hates kids, he hates your mom, he hates being called cute, he hates bananas, he hates, he hates hats, he hates girls but MOSTLY, he hates flowers. Hell is a part a big Bormals characters i own and hes been around for quite some time now.

The Hell resin figure is packaged in the traditional plain white box. There's no label on the front and the figure is secured between two pieces of Styrofoam. The Hell resin comes to you in six pieces with a small tube of superglue.
I basically opened this figure as a blind box, since I didn't know what was inside of Patch Together's blank white box. The first thing I saw was several bright resin pieces. There are six pieces (base, body, head, two ears and hair) that make up the Hell figure.
You also receive a tube of glue, which I usually end up getting all over myself and the figure. Luckily, I was extremely careful this time and was able to glue all of the parts perfectly. But I've realized that a little bit of the glue works wonders on holding the resin pieces together.
On to the figure...I'm guessing that this is what the Easter Bunny would look like if it was infected with Rabies. Big teeth, sharp claws and red eyes. I had seen the Hell design on Patch Together and liked it, but it's a hundred times better in person. Honestly, it's my favorite piece from Patch Together and will be on display during the yearly Easter Egg Hunt.
So, what makes this piece so good? It's all about the sculpting. The sculptor on the Hell piece (their name isn't listed on the box or website) nailed the artist's illustrated design. I like that they sculpted the mouth and the hair around the face, rather than just painting on these features.
The paint is average for a resin piece this size. There aren't any egregious paint flubs anywhere, only a little running around some of the sculpted areas. I like how the base transitions between shades of green. I would have preferred more of a matte finish on the entire Hell resin.
OVERALL: Patch Together took a great illustration and turned it into an even better resin figure. While there's not much background on the Hell character, or even the artist, you can't question a fun design. And the $39.95 price tag on this piece seems just about right.
