Bigshot Toyworks' Gnomeboy Gets Dissected with Jason Freeny

Bigshot Toyworks is proud to announce a new collaboration with the infamous and always amazing Jason Freeny! Jason has been a friend of Bigshot Toyworks for many years. In that time, they’ve worked on numerous projects together including the recent Bugs Bunny Anatomy sculpt for Kidrobot. Naturally, there's been talk for some time about a more personal collaboration, and now Bigshot Toyworks is ready to unveil a new project blending Jason’s unique anatomical dissection with one of Bigshot's in-house IPs: The Gnomeboys.
Behold: Ragnar “The Metal Gnome” Hellstrummer! He puts the Rok in Ragnarok! Ragnar is all Metal...all day long...even while doing laundry. He is dark and moody and is ready to set the stage on fire with his black metal guitar licks. We just hope his guts don’t spill out before the end of his solo….
The Ragnar Anatomical Dissection figure is 6” tall, hand-crafted from polystone in the world’s most metal place of crafting... CHINA!
Ragnar is a one-time collaborative project limited to 200 pieces in the standard colorway, with preorders available now at the Bigshot Toyshop:
Preorders for the standard edition of Ragnar will ship to customers after NYCC. In order to slake the black thirst for metal that inevitably creeps up at conventions, two more super-limited colorways will be created, including the Black Death Edition Ragnars to be sold at NYCC and DCon.
Sign up for the Gnomeboys email list to receive the most metal info available on the upcoming Gnomeboys releases.

So fun to see people opening blind boxes! No matter how many times you've opened one, you always get that rush of excitement... here's TJ freaking out about pulling the figure he wanted:
