Gotta keep the people updated with the goodness! I don’t mind shamelessly bein’ the cheerleader.
Joe had SO much good shit at DCon this year, but goddamn it, I really had to keep up on my obsession with Secretoy and Krono. That being said, though, I just had to pick up a Bam Bam. I feel like this sculpt is the natural evolutionary sculpt from Kid, to Mecha, even to Cyco, to Twin, to Bam Bam. The face is like a bastardized mashing of the Kid’s playful grin, but the Twins’ agony driven expression. Bringin’ the Cinema Monster’s three eyes, two nose, one mouth is a grand touch of creative consistency, as is the triple appendages from the Twins. The stitches and boils in the body give me more of an infected, rotting character, as opposed to the Twins, whom are already decomposed. And, of course, the arm with the stone, mace - like “hand,” where the Bam Bam name derives. I feel like this guy could easily exist in 80’s Saturday morning cartoons. My favorite thing about this particular paint app, is, the vinyl base is pink, but Joe’s application begs the question, to my eyes at least, could it be blue based with pink sprays instead? Very happy with version being first to join my shelves.
Fuckin’ fantastic. The paints on that are so vibrant, but not to the point of losing any sculptural integrity. I LOVE that rub in the face. Makes me think of comic book line and ink drawings, a la Sin City.
