In addition to being able to count on Retro Outlaw Studios for the best in pop culture mash-ups, another consistent is their awesome contributions to the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) exclusive scene. If you’ve followed SDCC the last few years, you probably remember their Clockwork Orange exclusive busts and statues which were consistently featured on SDCC “must have” lists. So, when I was contacted by Chris Santoro, famed “Outlaw” himself, about plans for their 2012 SDCC exclusive, I wasn’t shocked to hear it was awesome. That being said, as high as my expectations are for Retro Outlaw, this year’s exclusive might be the best yet. For 2012, Retro Outlaw will be releasing the ultimate in mash-ups as they take infamous Star Wars bounty hunter, Boba Fett and cross him with iconic daredevil, Evel Knievel to produce a 12” vinyl “Evel Fett” figure (cane included!)!
Although the figure is in the prototype phase and I can’t include a picture yet, Santoro did provide some details. As stated above the figure will be limited as an SDCC exclusive. Additionally, this figure will be Retro Outlaw’s first foray into the vinyl toy world and will feature professional packaging. Santoro also stated that there will be four color variations produced. One variant will be red, white and blue and another will be a glow-in-the-dark. The other two styles have not yet been announced.
Pricing is also still to be announced, so make sure to keep an eye on their website (http://retrooutlaw.com/) and follow me (Twitter: @The_Con_Fluence) for more news as it breaks on this SDCC “must have” exclusive.
