Chicago artist Alex Solis is on a roll. VTSS has just started taking pre-orders for Alex’s Famous Chunkies polystone figures. Based on his popular illustration series, the first wave features four well-known galactic overeaters appearing under their slightly less conspicuous aliases: Dark Lord, Trooper, The Grand Master and The Jedi. As you can see, these look great from the outfits to the bulging chins and expanded stomachs.
Each of the hand-painted figures stands 8” tall except for the wrinkly, wise, green one (6”). Limited to 120 pieces each, the Famous Chunkies are ready for any situation with lightsabers, blasters, burgers, tacos, burritos, sodas, and pizzas. The four figures will officially debut at Young Art Taipei (4.24). They are also available for pre-order now at VTSS for $160 each or $576 for the set of four (10% discount). The figures should ship towards the end of May via the included worldwide shipping service.
