Last year saw 3DRetro teaming up with Gary Baseman letting loose a 7.5” vinyl beast
No official word if the other 3 are customs or actual new production editions.
Ahwroo was created in 2012. This role is similar to a monkey and also a monster. The cute and scary character, Ahwroo, bears his snaggle-toothed grin to express his want of attention. If he doesn’t get it, he just might scratch and draw some blood. He not only needs a lot of attention but also hides the complex and contradictory aspects of human nature. Needless to say, the creation of Ahwroo is definitely one of a kind. The meticulous details of painting and the natural form of the first-class engraving technology feel like Ahwroo is in front of us!!
Stay tuned for further details.
