    Just found this fine artist who is obv rolling with some heavy toy influence. These big (76x41x101cm for example) figures are pretty amazing.

    So the double headed zombie is getting a vinyl release.
    If he keeps the colors I might be interested. Else I would have loved one of his other sculptures turned into a toy more.
    But you cannot escape the two headed toy vortex for now I guess.

    Fiberglass most likely. I'm going with marble though.

    They are fiberglass.

    He is one of my favorite artists to follow on instagram, amazing work.

    And I would love to own one of his fiberglass sculptures, but I will gladly settle for a vinyl if he makes one.

    These are beautiful. Really like that Hooded Bear looking creature in the blue shirt. Would love to see a toy of that sculpt. Like the toy for the two headed zombie toy he's doing as well.
    Thanks for posting this.

    Although I am still not really sold on the 'chain' concept, the younger version of the two-headed guy looks much better in my opinion - but a different medium of course. Really makes me see a GPK vibe in him. Not something that fits in with my collection, but I can appreciate the style.

    Re: Takahiro Komuro Sculptures

    Debating with myself about whether to get the vinyl two-headed zombie or not.
    I really like it but the price is just a little high for an unpainted release (I think I read somewhere that it is 11"? But still . . .).
    But mostly I hesitate because I would want a painted release that uses his typical palette of pop art colors.
    Does anyone know if there will be further releases?

    Thanks.

    It's TAG, so I would expect a ton of releases.
