Introducing the first Super Series Sundays release: Tenacious Toys Exclusive Species 246 resin figure by DuBose Art

Tenacious Toys is excited to announce the first exclusive release for Super Series Sundays! The Species 246 resin figure by DuBose Art is about 3 inches tall and is cast in resin dyed with Monster Kolor dyes- this color is Seashore Blue, and Jonathan DuBose finished the pieces by airbrushing various shades of C-Thru Monster Kolor paint, with Clear Coat on top. 

Recently discovered Species: 246 is a nocturnal reptile-like creature. With the aid of his large eyes and 2 mouths, Species: 246 is a apt night hunter with a ferocious little appetite. They can only be found only in the most dense and humid regions of the Amazon Rain Forest. Species: 246, aka "Ben" because of his cute and almost benign appearance. Don't let the big eyes fool you...when he bites, he bites twice. 

There are 10 pieces in this Exclusive colorway, all numbered and packaged in fancy black boxes. Extra stickers are included with each order.
Each figure is $35 and can be purchased here on our Super Series Sundays page.

The release for the DuBose Art Species 246 is 10PM EST this Sunday, February 17.

Join us on Feb 17th to kick off Super Series Sundays! Expect a new resin or custom toy series release each Sunday going forward!
