It’s been a while since we last saw turboPISTOLA‘s Elephantos resin, so it came with great pleasure yesterday to find the artist has been working on not one, but two all-new colourways! Entitled the “Skellas”, the first edition has been inspired by MOTU’s Skeletor, coming in a faithful mix of yellow, blue and purple brushwork on top of a detail-hugging black base. Limited to just 3 pieces, the little guys come packed in the signature block printed box for $25 plus shipping… Joining the “Skellas”, turboPISTOLA has updated one of the series’ most popular past colourways with the reveal of Breakbeat Mk.2. Painted in the artist’s familiar multi-coloured daubs with black detailing, the figures have once again been limited to 3, available on the newly opened turboPISTOLA Storenvy right here for $25 plus shipping.

Limited to just 15 (some colours being more rare than others), the figures are due to come bagged with a hand-stamped header for $25 plus shipping… Taking inspiration from childhood memories, the “Imagination is King” Elephantos is the latest to be granted a weapon accessory… this time in the form of a (resin cast) wooden sword! Limited to just 5 pieces this time around (with only 3 available for sale), the figures come with Turbopistola’s signature brushed and rubbed paint job, each with a different coloured band on their pants. Packaged in a custom built lino cut box, the Imagination is King Elephantos will be joining the Spectra’s in the Turbopistola store tomorrow (Monday, 20th August) at 10am Central time for $35 plus shipping…
