I think my iPhone4 is quickly giving up the ghost. I haven’t been able to take a non-blurry photo with it in for a few months now, and this is no exception. Got the Wingshits in yesterday and this fella above is about as good as it gets without breaking out the better camera. His green counterpart came out even blurrier. Such is life.
I’m also branding my images directly now, blurry though they are, since someone on eBay is using them on iPhone cases now. Annoying, but what can you do.
Skullwing: Wingshits (Astro Zombies x Hirota Saigansho)
Superfest 64 (1/12/14).
Painted by Hirota to match the color of the original Fink-Shit!
Why the heck not. I’ve been wanting a new custom by Phil for a while now; just had to wait to collect the parts. This Astropirate used to be a Rainy Day Pirate (body) and Rainy Day Skullwing (head) with the arm from a Clear Pirate/Captain thrown in to give him something to drink. The only direction I gave him was ‘spanish yellow’. The rest was all him. I can’t wait to get this gentleman home and put him with the rest of the crew!
New Pushead goodness!
I picked this gentleman up earlier this week and he arrived today. My collection is seriously lacking in Skullwings; working on that!
Just arrived in the mail; A white flocked, hand painted Skullwing!
It’s my first HP (I only have HSP and HSPX) Pushead piece, so as you can imagine I’m pretty geeked.
The Punk ’77 Skullwing was the first Secret Base Pushead toy that I bought. I was messing around with the new Dali Museum Hipstamatic “goodpack” and decided to try it out on the ‘wing. Bit surreal, but I guess that’s the point. A non-Dali’ified picture is included for good measure!
With just a touch of my burning hand
I send my astro zombies to rape the land
Prime directive, exterminate
The whole human race
It’s almost Halloween. Instinctively I play the Misfits a lot more often to get myself into the season. Not that they’re a gimmick band or anything (at least not the original lineup) but October is just the perfect month for it. Spooky movies, which we already primarily watch at our house, are in the rotation more often, stores are decorated with grinning devils and little kids can be seen wandering around in full Halloween costumes for no reason other than that they can.
So as I was cleaning today, Misfits blasting ASTRO ZOMBIES, I decided to snap a picture of the Astrozombies XV Skullwing (with his buddy the NYCC Skull Pirate) for the blog.
It’s a crappy iPhone shot, so it’s a little blurry, but either way… Happy Halloween!
My collection is severely lacking in Skullwings; with even less custom painted pieces.
I was able to remedy that tonight by finally scoring a custom painted SW by Philly’s own HelloPike. If you scroll through my links section you’ll see a link to his custom sale site Lunatic Fringe. All of his custom work is great, but his Skullwings are always top notch.
We’re going to meet up tomorrow for the sale, then this guy pictured above (shamelessly stolen from Phil’s site) will be a part of my collection.
