The Last Ride flips the script a bit on Fools Paradise’s Coin Rides Game series. Recently seen in several FP releases, Lowfool (aka Batman) is front and center once again, albeit in a puzzling and befuddling moment. Rather than hopping on an child’s amusement ride version of his signature vehicle as seen throughout this series, the Caped Crusader clearly won’t fit onto the wee replica. Perhaps this is Lowfool’s continuing reluctance or refusal to be the fearless, heroic, and often hapless puppet of a foolish Hollywood, or in his own words ‘I Wont Be a Hero, Tim’. It might also be that poor creative decisions have brought him to his lowest point yet. Call it fan protest, homage, and parody rolled into one.
Limited to 398 pieces, The Low Ride features a heavily tatted Lowfool—Fools Paradise has fallen in love with body ink—and the Tumbler-mobile ride. This amusing and curious piece is available for pre-order for $295 (+ $30 for Global Shipping) from Fools Paradise. Delivery is slated for 4th Quarter 2016.
