Kindreds Powder SDCC 2016 1st Edition Exclusive By Martin Hsu x PowerCore

A step into memory lane with this release. TTC were lucky to be at Dcon 2015 and one prototype that we will always remember and would of risked jail time to snatch this work of art, would’ve been Martin Hsu & PowerCore “Kindreds”. Last year Kindreds was in it’s infant stages, but it was the minmistic design that won our hearts. Something so simple yet so elegant didn’t need any paint or a story behind it at that time to fall in love with Kindreds. The time as come for the first edition of Kindreds “Powder”  by Martin Hsu & PowerCore.

“The Protector and the Little One are inseparable. The ever faithful Protector keeps watch as the Little One plays in the sunshine and provides shelter when the weather turns foul. The two have a deep unspoken bond; without the other, neither can be whole.”

“Kindreds” is a limited edition two piece resin sculpture by San Francisco based artist Martin Hsu. This first color edition is titled “Powder” and is limited to 50 (2-piece) sets worldwide.”

“The work embodies the important themes of kinship and strong relationships between the denizens of the immersive world that Martin has been creating for the past decade. The two figures can be arranged in multiple ways. The Little One has been designed to sit comfortably atop the head of the Protector, play by its side or fit perfectly underneath the body of the larger figure.”

The PowerCore team worked closely with Martin to help realize the artist’s vision. Hand cast in powder white resin, “Kindreds” stands 7 inches tall when arranged together and weighs two pounds with a polished stone-like finish.
