Our very patient customers are now enjoying the awesome sculptures we just sent to them! After a lengthy session packing and shipping a few hundred packages, many of our customers are now posting up pics of their hauls on Instagram and tagging us at @bigshotklim and @zerofuckshero - here are some of their shots! If you missed out on either of these releases, have no fear: Monkey with a Gun sculptures are still available in both Bronze and Bone colorways, and the elusive FUnicorn can be captured in Original Taste the Rainbow, Gold Medal Edition and Bad to the Bone colorways.
Both sculptures are solid, hefty and finely detailed. Monkeys are $150 each and created in collaboration with Mike Mignola.
Funicorns are $69 each and created out of the sparkle juice that surrounds Klim's spinal column and sometimes leaks from his ears. We don't judge over here.
Limited quantities of each figure left; we will bring some of each to NYCC Booth 208 if there are any left come October.
Note: all sculptures are kitten-friendly and cat-approved.
We are happy to announce that the Funicorns and the Mike Mignola Monkey with a Gun figures are now in transit on the way to our warehouse! Yesterday we received images of the figures being loaded up at the beginning of their journey. Sea shipment to the US take several weeks, so to make sure that you don't miss any important updates, you can sign up for our email list here: http://bigshottoyshop.com/pages/email-list
Mike Mignola will have some of the final production pieces of his Monkey with a Gun figure on display at Booth 4901. The rest of the Monkeys are just now beginning the journey from factory to our warehouse. We will post up a more specific arrival date once the ship is closer to port.
Our friends at 3D Retro will have a limited selection of the original 6-inch Maddies for sale at Booth 5045. Also on hand (but not on sale yet) will be the paint samples of the upcoming 4-inch Four Horsies of the Pocalypse figures.

Jason Edmiston will be displaying FUnicorns at his Booth 4617 - stop by to check them out in person and grab some free swag! Jason painted the stupendous painting that became the box art on the FUnicorn boxes. FUnicorns are shipping with the Monkeys, so they will be here and shipping to customers in about one month.
