Hellpainter’s Hell Maijin garage kit…

Brought to our attention by collector Beantime during his walk through the halls of Superfestival 71 yesterday, we thought we’d shine some light on this rather interesting garage kit from Hellpainter… the Hell Maijin! One of the best homages to the classic Ooze-It doll we’ve seen to date, the beautifully textured figure brings a whole new level of creepiness to the table, featuring mutated alien skin, sagging craters and our favourite, an Alien-style tongue creature! Produced in an unassembled blank Ooze-green resin (the painted version was just for display), interested parties looking to bag Hell Maijin can currently find him alongside an number of other kits in the Hellpainter store for just 9,000yen ($83) plus shipping…
