MAN-E-NEWS// The Fra Diavolo resin figure from Healeymade…

10864992_376650815838164_1987587826_n

Marking a brief side-step from his regular 3.75″ work, Healeymade has just revealed his latest 5.5″ resin figure, the jaw-dropping Fra Diavolo! Rather aptly translating from French as “Brother Devil” – the nickname given to notorious Neapolitan guerrilla leader Michele Pezza – the stunning MOTU-scaled piece has been meticulously kit-bashed and re-sculpted from various vintage action figures, coming cast in a mesmerising pink and black swirled resin for this debut release. Offering the perfect chance to spend that Christmas cash that’ll no doubt be burning a hole in your pocket over the weekend, Fra Diavolo will be touching down in the Healeymade store on Boxing Day (12/26) at an undisclosed time. Keep track of the Healeymade Instagram feed here for full details on the drop later in the week…
