One of our favourites is back for a brand new run. We’re talking of the one and only Fake Baron soft vinyl figure, a robot inspired by a illustration found on Japanese menko back in 1970’s produced by Awesome Toy. This time around in a ‘Old Master Q’ inspired version, the popular Hong Kong manhua created by Alfonso Wong.
Old Master Q grew up with everyone for 55 years. He encouraged a generation of Hong Kong people to treat life with a relaxed and humorous attitude. Awesome Toy, a senior Sofubi brand from Hongkong, is good at transforming classic works by novelty. They have brought many unusual surprises to the industry with their positive and optimistic spirit. Because of gaining the copyright of the original author, Wang Ze, Awesome Toy had an opportunity to use its hot product Fake Baron to create a new figure solemnly this time. On the one hand, the combination of the old and the little represents the inheritance of the spirit, and we can imagine that after a centenary, Old Master Q still has a sense of humor in the robot era. On the other hand, combining the nostalgic Chinglish long gown with a very modern robot setting, produced a very harmonious comedy effect.
Stands about Limited to 55 pieces each on painted by hand (without masking) to commemorate the 55th anniversary of the Old Master Q.
