All of which will be on display at San Diego Comic Con booth #1729.
When I said ‘yes’ to the show I didn’t know what figure we were going to get to customize, so getting the package with the blank was extra exciting! My piece, the Sleeping Sea Urchin, began life as one of Hovarth‘s 5″ ‘My Friend Dave’ figure. His rounded form, bumpy tummy and spines immediately made me think of sea urchins, and I set out to create a creature inspired by their texture and pattern.
Sleeping Sea Urchin is $270 and is now avaliabe to purchase instore or online from Giant Robot
