Sobre este título:
Geared toward garage kits, character figures, subculture figures, limited editions, and extreme figures by master creators, this book satisfies the appetite of the figure aficionado with a continuous stream of figures and vast and comprehensive selection. Full Vinyl covers mass?produced popular favorites (such as Homies), sub?culture figures, Anime?inspired figures (such as Bome), category?defining "thingies", Hong Kong luminaries (such as Eric So and Michael Lau), figures based on the work of hugely popular artists (such as Gary Baseman or Yoshitomo Nara), and artists that take figure making to the next level (such as Shinichi Yamashita).
This volume includes interviews with selected creators, and discussions on topics including aesthetics and the significance of the work for an older audience of collectors.
The catalog will include captioning for each figure, including licensing and distribution information.
