Talk about kicking off 2020 with a beast of a release! You’ve been warned, get your bank account and shelf-space ready. The new FLESH Variant DEVILMANby Mike Sutfin x Unbox Industries is ready to be unleashed this weekend! The figure is based on artist Mike Sutfin’s Devilman screen-printed poster released back in 2015, and stands 12″ tall with five points of articulation
In 2015 Mondo Tees and Mike Sutfin joined forces to conceive a collaborative print project inspired by the legendary Go Nagai’s Devilman franchise.
Fast forward to 2017 and Unbox took over the creative reins to push Mike’s original design into three dimensions under his watchful eye and to finally be granted approval of Go Nagai himself.
The Unbox team pulled together a variety of production techniques to create this unique interpretation without forfeiting the original concept.
By utilising a combination of traditional “sofvi” style manufacturing and injection moulding the team captured the nuances of Mike’s style perfectly.
