Lenny Cervello over at Algangu is proud to reveal that their Dissolution of Smoke: Vol. 2 will be seeing it’s long-awaited second painted release very soon! Featuring a total of 3 designs inspired by traditional yokai and 1970’s candy shop playing cards, the figures – a gourd holding monk, a castle and a cycloptic hat – stand a little shorter than the first release at around 2.5″-3″ each, coming complete with a finger puppet-style open base design. Produced in a gorgeous purple vinyl this time around, each mini comes packed with a variety of metallic blue, purple and pink sprays with hand brushed detailing. Whilst release info is still thin on the ground at present, we’re guessing these will be available at Superfestival next weekend (3/13), with an online release soon after… Keep track of Algangu’s Instagram feed here for the full lowdown!
