Russell















Russell, from the oversized Gorillaz vinyl toy set by Jamie Hewlett and KidRobot. The attention to detail that was put into translating Jamie's killer designs into toy form is outstanding. The sheer size of this guy will punch you in the face when you see it in person. Holy smack.

I was lucky enough to pick him up in the KidRobot shop on Haight St. in San Francisco… currently this super limited version is sold out online. If you move quick, you can still nab the alternate “red edition.”

Awww yeah. More Gorillaz love on the Ghostblog. Russell is made for vinyl. Very cool figure.

Daaang! That Dave Cooper proto has some seriously awesome sculpting. Thanks for the link Josh.

This toy is awesome. I have to admit, I was a doubter at first when I saw pre-release pictures. But seeing this series in person made me a believer. I snagged Russel. Now I'm eyeing Noodle...

Josh, that Cooper toy is sick! Colin Batty is one freaking awesome sculptor.

Hot swill!! The sculpting on that Dave Cooper figure is RIDICULOUS!!! The detail on the teeth and hair make me weep.
