Canadian artist Patrick Wong reveals his latest custom vinyl figure titled "ST 1200" juxtaposing the iconic Stormtrooper helmet with the music producer's favorite 12-bit sampling drum machine, the Emu Systems SP 1200.
The "ST 1200" was created with a readymade 3.5" floppy disk drive, found floppy disks, handcrafted resin faders, and an Apoxie Sculpt-modified Stormtrooper helmet. The piece was originally scheduled to exhibit in a Stormtrooper show earlier this month, but due to a limited shipping window, Wong decided not rush the artwork and withdrew from the show.
The one-off custom was available beginning Friday Dec. 18th at his webshop, but has since been sold.
