Triplikid is Open for Business!

From Triplikid:

The Original!! Cast resin collectible by Tripilikd in the original concept colors. Groper stands 3.5 inches tall. He is custom painted by hand, so there may be small variations from piece to piece.
Item is on Pre-Order until October 5th. It should arrive in-store by Mid November and will be shipped promptly thereafter.

Ok, now let's talk.  I tend toward parsimony when it comes to praise.  I have encouragement and free advice for days but it takes something exceptional to warrant actual praise so here it is: This figure looks exceptional.  I would put this on my desk.  In fact, I will put this on my desk.

What makes this figure exceptional?

  • Concept: Characterful yet simple.  A little bit of Critters with a strong cartoon silhouette.
  • Sculpt: Hair is one of the hardest textures to sculpt and it looks awesome.
  • Size: 3.5 inches (89 mm for metric folks).  That's a nice chunk of resin.  Not so large that it is unwieldy but not so small that you don't feel like you're getting your money's worth.
  • Engineering: It may not look it but the figure is actually 5 pieces (pic below).  What this means from a tech standpoint is that each of the small parts (hands, "dentures") can be cast in a way that makes them much less prone to miscasts and flaws.

Triplikid is definitely adding to the "design space" of resin toys so I can't wait to get my hands on one of these and see what is up next!
