The Blot was beyond excited to get the opportunity to review Nerviswr3k’s first production vinyl figure, the Inner Child! I’ve been a fan of his custom work for years, and from the photos I’d seen this figure looked handmade. Shocking as it may be, the figure surpassed even my high expectations! I seriously can’t get over how much this 4” figure looks like one of Nerviswr3k’s custom pieces.
Produced by SubUrban Vinyl, the Inner Child’s QC is pretty much perfect. The paint application is impeccable and the factory did a great job putting these figures together. I love the expression on the Inner Child’s face, and the teeth on his costume are actually sharp (but not that sharp)! With all of the texture on this sculpt, if I didn’t know any better I’d think this was a Japanese sofubi release. You just don’t see this level of detail in western figures these days.
Even though Inner Child is only 4” tall, it’s got some serious heft to it. As you can tell from these photos, it looks way bigger than your standard 3” Dunny even though it's just 1” taller. I’ve also posed it with Gary Ham’s Wooper Looper and Brandt Peters's Stingy Jack to give you a feel of how awesome Inner Child would look in your collection! I think these kind of photos help put new releases in perspective since so many of us now shop almost exclusively online and never get to see these awesome designer art toys in person before taking the plunge to spend our hard earned money on them. As you can see, this figure lives up to the hype! So what are you waiting for already!?!
Nerviswr3k’s Inner Child comes packaged in a full color box, will be released in 3 killer colorways (limited to 125 pieces each), and will retail for just $45! The Tenacious Toys Exclusive Blue colorway went on sale last weekend here, and the standard edition Red colorway is available now at the following select retailers: Rotofugi, My Plastic Heart, The Cotton Candy Machine, Woot Bear, Collect and Display, Art Attack Toys, WTF Plastic Co, Toy Tokyo, Clutter Gallery and Martian Toys. Green is the third and final colorway, and it is scheduled to go on sale exclusively at SubUrban Vinyl on March 21st. Get one while you still can!
