Coming Soon: Muttpop's Tequila Pop Culture Edition

Sadly, this is fifth and final installment of The Blot’s inaugural weekly series on Comic Book Inspired Designer Vinyl Figure Colorways. I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed doing it, and I am planning on doing another week long feature in the very near future.

Over the past two or three years, Muttpop has become almost as well known for their amazing colorways as they are for their Lucha Libre vinyl figures. Tequila, the first Lucha Libre character released in vinyl form, has a huge year ahead of him with 3 to 4 different colorways set to be released. Of course it is Tequila’s Pop Culture colorway that really has The Blot excited.

Where’s Waldo Tequila?
Can you spot the two Tequila Pop Culture Edition figures in the picture above?

As you can see from the picture below, Tequila’s Pop Culture colorway is based on the Marvel Comics super hero the Incredible Hulk’s color scheme of green skin and purple clothing. I warned you it was a popular colorway!

Lucha Libre - TequilaEvery Tequila figure released to this point is already sold out, but with so many different colorways coming out in the next year getting one of the new Tequila figures shouldn’t be a problem. No price or run size for the Tequila Pop Culture Edition figure has been released yet, but what is known is that there will be a hard to find Tequila Pop Culture variant colorway created as well. I’m still trying to find out if the variant figure will be randomly inserted blind box style or if it will be sold separately in extremely limited quantities. The Pop Culture variant figure is rumored to be based on another popular character but whether it is based on a hero or a villain is anyone’s guess.
