The Blot’s excited to announce that Yuudoku, Troy Stith’s first original production figure, will be released this Friday, July 27th at the Max Toy Company online store! After a year of hard work by Troy and Max Toy Co, Yuudoku is finally ready for his world debut. The first colorway of this toxic monster will be a striking unpainted blue, and will retail for just $20 each. Yuudoku stands 3.5” tall, features 3 points of articulation (at the waist and tentacles), and each figure sports a randomly inserted eye. The Blot’s especially looking forward to seeing this bad boy painted! And keep an eye on Troy’s blog because there will definitely be some one-offs and a couple of small Yuudoku runs released by him soon.
Yuudoku’s Story: Born off the Coast of Kikorman Island, Yuudoku lived a happy life among the reefs in the crystal blue waters. He enjoyed being surrounded by his friends and providing housing for them and their kin. All of that changed when greedy tankers began dumping toxic waste into the pristine waters. While no one knew these dastardly deeds were being committed, the results began to change and warp the once pure waters of Kikorman Bay. Left with the choice of fleeing to cleaner waters or death, Yuudoku’s friends began to disappear. The tankers eventually moved on to spread their filth elsewhere, but Yuudoku’s friends still fled. It wasn’t the boats that they were afraid of anymore, it was him. Yuudoku had mutated into a hulking tentacled beast. His body that was once a home had become a poisonous wasteland. Plumes of toxins spewed from his back, making it impossible for his friends to be close to him without endangering their lives. He found himself alone; radiating with angry despair. Yuudoku vowed revenge against those who brought this dismal fate upon him.
