Evilos is dropping a pretty sweet custom Star Wars Vinylmation figure entitled “NOOOOOOOOOO!!!!” under the Star Rars: Evilos Strikes Back banner at Designer Con 2011 next week. If you can’t tell from the photo, this is a custom Empire Strikes Back Luke Skywalker Vinylmation figure, minus his right hand courtesy of Darth Vader. While the figure is awesome in its own right, what I really love about this release is its custom packaging!
I’m a sucker for custom blister card packaging and Evilos did an amazing job with this one. From the blister card photo depicting the Vader/Skywalker showdown on Bespin to the perfectly diagramed hole in the top so these could be sold on a j-hook, everything about this blister packaging is perfect. If I had one complaint it would be that the custom’s Mickey Mouse Vinylmation's ears were cut in half so the figure could fit in the blister pack. While I would have preferred for the ears to have remained whole (unless their being cut signified some particular purpose), I’m ok with it because of how cool the blister card packaging is.
Pick up this DCon 2011 Exclusive Empire Strikes Back Luke Skywalker Custom Vinylmation Figure by Evilos at DCon booth #117. These figures have a limited edition run size of 50 pieces and will retail for $75 each.
