2017 the scene was shaken when Unbox announced they’ve continued the creative relationship with Nomiwa with the vinyl debut of Hannya and Tengu over 4 years ago! Inspired by the classic Hannya mask as used in Noh Theatre & a certain sea-dwelling burger flipper, Nomiwa’s striking design and paintwork have resulted in a striking figure that exudes both menace and humour. Now the duo is back! Today we get a closer look at the new colourway of Tengyu and Hannya as the Sponge Bob and Patrick mixed in with Japanese style is a godsend and the sinister look has our fingers glued onto the F5 already as they both have an official online release date. *Please note, they do not contain actual fruit so please do not eat, but if you can’t resist we won’t judge you, HA.
