This Friday (Jan. 25), Scott Tolleson will be releasing his sofubi Deadbeet figure in a rich purple colorway, reminiscent of a familiar shade donned by a loveable, fast food-eating blob. The release of this figure may be my favorite colorway yet. Deadbeet is a break from Tolleson’s usual argyle-clad characters but that hasn’t discouraged his fans from snatching up the previous releases. Painted by Nebulon5, Grimace Deadbeet will be available at 10am Pacific here for $120 each. Limited to ten pieces, this one is going to go fast! Deadbeet hopefully has opened up Tolleson’s work to new fans and encouraged existing fans to take notice of this multi-talented artist! You can also check out Tolleson’s work in the Fonzo Loves NY show currently on display at mph.
Oh, and did you check out the packaging?! WHAAAAT?!
