On (6/23/17) we released our first product for sale “1:6th Scale Sun Wukong Resin Model Kit”, our fan interpreted model of The Mighty Kong and his powerhouse adversary Alpha Skull Crawler. This was sculpted by “Chris Kam” Camilo Aldana, who notably has done work for Imaginarium Art Collectibles. The Art Direction was done by our CEO Jason Rosa. This came w/ 2 portraits to chose from or swap out at your leisure (grimace & roaring). The water is translucent resin cast for that see-through effect. At sixth scale total Height X Width X Length = 21″ inches (52cm) X 9.5″ (24cm) X 12″ (30cm). Weight was over 13 lbs. Check out our teaser below.
What is a NEOTYPE® kit?
NEOTYPE® Model Kits are Sixth Scale (1:6th) or Quarter Scale (1:4th), these are museum-grade sculptures of some of your favorite world icons! Intended for the showcase collector the large scale not only bring an impressive display, it magnifies detail. The pieces are primarily in Polyurethane Resin cast and are packaged like a high grade statue. All NEOTYPE® items are extremely limited and once a run completes, that will conclude the quantity!
So far we have had a great launch and we can’t thank enough those who supported the kit, the work behind it, and of course Maven Collectibles in general. Like this spotlight on Marvelous Statue.A huge shout to Jorge at Marvelous Statue for the episode spotlight! We greatly appreciate it, ESPECIALLY if we got your interests to see the film!
