I’m incredibly pleased and proud to announce that my first 1/6th scale Hell figure, Baron Faraii, produced by Zenpunk Collectibles, is now available for preorder! I know it’s been a long time coming, but, to me, the wait has been worth it. This fully articulated figure is truly amazing – a colossal 18 inches of infernal Evil. The care and fidelity to my designs that Zenpunk’s Tong Zhao has brought to the production of this first demon was without parallel. And the sculpting and detailing that the brilliant Simon Lee has put on the figure is beyond anything I could have hoped for. The accessories are beautiful and the special base is gorgeous. It even has LED light up details.Zenpunk has produced two versions: Baron Faraii- The Fallen General- Standard Version and Baron Faraii and the Dark Fire Nomad – Special Version, which is limited to only 800 pieces world wide. I think the pictures speak for themselves.
Baron Faraii is available from select 1/6th scale retailers. I\’ve been collecting for a long time, and my preferred retailer of choice is Timewalker Toys & Collectibles. As a special incentive, my friends at Timewalker are offering a limited edition autographed print of my painting of Faraii. This full sized, signed print is exclusively available at Timewalker Toys, and only during the preorder period.
