Last month Tanavit23 JEM AKA Jeremy Tanavit showed us what he’s been working on and boy it was freaking rad! Excitement more than hype was building as his “Pitohui” raw prototype photos were shown. Many collectors asked the question when will it be released. Today Jeremy showed the colour testing stage so the wait shouldn’t be too long.
Even in the prototype stage, we want it, never the less we fell the love for Pitohui, someways elegance, a spot of cheeky fun as well as that removable cat skull mask, giving Pitohui two different desired looks. Does bird eat the cat? This still isn’t the final version of PITOHUI but its dam promising.
Pitohui is JEM’s companion. Although he may look tough and punk, pitohui is actually very sensitive and shy. Pitohui has dreams to be a crime fighter hence the CAT skull mask, but for now, Pitohui enjoys the wonderful adventures with JEM.
Fun Fact: The hooded pitohui is a pitohui of New Guinea with black and orange plumage. It is one of the few known poisonous birds.
We love the skeleton right down to the spine which incorporates as a mask! We mean the mask Itself we could display that alone it’s that cool. How do you guys feel about the colour scheme? It stays true to the actual real life Pitohui bird. We personally like it and suits Jeremy’s version, We would be a little biased as it has the same body shape as us, Ha. We wouldn’t be surprised if other colourways would come out in the future.
The photo above is Jeremy testing which version of the eye suits Pitohui more. Which one do you reckon? Answers in the comment section below.
Overall we can’t wait to see the finished version of Pitohui, we sincerely hope Jeremy continues down this route as it’s one of his finest creations. We would like to see other artists get involved with Pitohui in the future see their vision. Fingers crossed colour choices and application will do Pitohui justice. More details on production size and price will be release soon.
