We Toucan love you COARSE! Cancan The Toucan by Coarse has just been announced in vinyl format! we never thought we would have seen it in vinyl, as vinyl is a lot softer then resin would be harder to make because of the design as Cancan is suspended in mid-air using it’s tail. Well this is why The Toy Chronicle aren’t designers or manufactures, we will leave it for the folks like Coarse. Here’s their press release. (get your credit cards and christmas money ready)
“Initially presented as a concept sculpting at an exhibition earlier this year, cancan is now available as a unique vinyl figure. This toucan began in the coarse world as a question: how could we make a creature appear suspended in mid-air? The result is cancan, whose large body appears to magically float over his own tail.”
It’s not just the releases we look forward to reading the story that goes with each release makes it a tad special.
We are now releasing this special coarse piece in three editions.
Velórios finds cancan with the sunset gradient of time lost and the blackness of despair as his obsession with the past overwhelms him. cancan velórios is limited to 345 pieces.
