One deep breath is what you need when you see this fantastic custom GOIN Bad Apple by Jon Paul kaiser. Designer Toy Award 2013 (best Resin) GOIN x Mighty Jaxx Bad Apple is still one of my personal hole grails and never managed to snag one at retail price and yet some collector has commissioned JPK to customise one. Great choice in artist to customise one and i’m sure collectors will be knocking on JPK’s door after seeing this custom. So how did it turn out? F-ing EPIC! we all know by now JPK customs are great but never imagined the “Margaretha Von Weiss” Bad Apple would be this awesome. Love everything about it from the tattoos that tells the story to the popping slight metallic red used on the Bad Apple.
“Margaretha Von Weiss, a play on the names of Snow White and one of the women the legend is reputed to be based around.
As you know this is a Bad Apple figure, produced by Mighty Jaxx and was a commission for a private client. From our discussions we decided to tell elements of her story through tattoos on her arms. To contrast and highlight the complexity of the tattoos, the rest of the figure is kept very bold and minimal. “
I love the way JPK has been painting the hair as seen in the past few customs we’ve seen from JPK that includes hair. using the grey and white tones to go with the flow of the hair make it look more three dimensional. JPK once again masters his shadowing throughout this fine custom and defines that he’s still one of the top artist/customisers in the scene right now.
Ok who owns this custom? we’re jealous. If you’re like us and you want something this fabulous, you can get in contact with JPK to get on his commission list. Photographed byJustin Allfree.
