Third new must-have vinyl figure of 2008

This is the hand-painted prototype of Dave Pressler's new 8" tall Angry Clobber Monkey (ACM) that is being released soon by Munky King. According to Vinyl Pulse:
'Dave added a sweet surprise detail... The hatch on the rear of ACM now opens to reveal a little pilot. This lil' guy watches over the angry meter and pushes the 'clobber' button when the metal one's temper boils over. ACM is a strong design fusing a personable character with a tight sculpt bristling with technical details -- such as the screws and rivets. The hidden cockpit with pilot figure push it over the top by revealing an additional aspect of the character's back story. Dave (is) one of the few artists who sculpts his own figures ensuring that the 3D shape is completely true to the initial vision.'

Here's the 'lil' guy' in question. I love it.

No date for release yet but if you want to see more, click here.

My flavour of the month, Amanda Visell, has a new figure out too. It's the metal Axephunt available in silver from Fully Visual. There are only 100 of these in existence ... and just one is gold. Will it be mine?
