    I was lucky enough to catch one of these guys the other day.

    I couldnt find anything other than this thread HERE about Mr Von Poomz. It has Unchiman and Dar-deh in it as well, so maybe im missing something. Anywho, here are some photos.

    From Paul's blog:

    Here's a little back story from said post:

    "I designed Mr. Popo von Poomz back in the 90s. Previous incarnations of this character included random picnic table graffiti, phone pad doodles, and a hand crafted kitchen magnet.

    Popo is the butt of many a joke, yet he’s a dependable handyman and travellin’ road scamp.

    Now he’s been faithfully brought to life as a full-sized vinyl toy, produced in Japan. He’s guaranteed to brighten up any toy shelf.

    He’s all A-holes and elbows! 'In the end, why regret taking crap so damn seriously?'"

    Super fun, guy. His taped back toe and hat are my favorite parts and as always the header card is bonkers good.

    I know there is also a mixed parts blank out there and a few one offs, share them if you got them. I was not that lucky.

    I've only recently learned of this asshole, but I like him. We could use more of this type of stuff (but not too much ;)). I think I mentioned this elsewhere but PVP really reminds me of Robert Williams, especially his comix stuff, in both visually style and crude humor (but not enough to seem overly derivative or anything). 'Grats on the score.

    NSFW(?) cartoon nudity:

    Glad you were able to pick one up via the drop, @gatiio! I love how much comedic value there is in Popo. Crude and in your face, but carries a cuter, vintage vibe. Very coin bank feel, which Paul has recently posted he's done up a trip as such, with a touch of California Raisins in the arms/hands. The amount of articulation adds to the playability, as well.

    Maybe prunes would be more appropriate, considering.

    I would like to formally request the alternative moniker for Popo be dubbed:

    "Alien Butthole Seijin".

    Has a nice ring to it methinks (but not very often, and definitely not when at all avoidable).

    That gouch, tho.....

    Next time you cross paths with Paul, ask him about this character. He's been drawing this since he was a teenager and definitely has some funny stories behind it..

    You give me too much credit sometimes, my friend. An accidental-butt-well-placed pun it seems. 8)

    I think Paul should create some haute couture for Popo, a la Bemon- some ben wa balls replete with metal chain, perhaps?

    Bringin’ this gem of a thread back with a gem of a release! Devilman Von Poomz, with Go Nagai inspired paints and a butthole squeaker!!! The vinyl is super squishy, so this release has a perfect vintage squeaker toy presentation in hand! The omake with the matching pucker and sailor hat is a super cute companion. Paul’s paints are perfectly executed, as always, and have a lot of give to the flexibility of the layers atop the vinyl. The header kickback to the OG poppers is so fun, too. I’m pretty excited this is my first version!!!

    Love this one! I still only have the first release as per the one-sculpt-no-space rule but this one is a killer look.

    your pics make it look super gory! Love it

    Thanks for sharing as always, man!

    @gatiio I think the first version you own is the quintessential version, but I really am elated this is the first one I own. I hadn’t really thought of it as gory, since all I’ve seen emanate is Devilman. But the deep reds running over the scrotum and open balloon knot definitely bring about some thoughts of road rash and gashes. :lol:
