First teased here way back in January, the guys over at HipHopRobot have just revealed the very first paint tests for their debut toy, Franken Molar! Pictured here alongside another upcoming release, a collaboration with Cory Rogers entitled “Skull Rose” (more info on that soon!), the 5″ tall figure was designed by HHR’s Mark Bentley and sculpted by his other half Maren Seibold, drawing inspirations from classic B-Movie monsters, neo-kaiju and, of course, the Ooze-It doll to dazzling effect. Originally due to come in soft vinyl, the guys have since decided to take production into their own hands for this one, with this first batch coming hand cast in solid resin by Bentley. Beautifully sprayed in a vivid mix of Monster Kolor paints, this first batch of test paints will be up for grabs at some point later today (5/27) through the HipHopRobot Instagram feed for around $50 each (TBC)… Here’s hoping a bigger batch follows soon, as these 4 are certainly not going to last long!
