apyhe1_original

Originally making its debut early last year, Leviathan‘s awesome Silent Hill inspired M.U.S.C.L.E custom, Pyramid Head, has returned for a limited artist proof run! Based on the cult videogame/film’s reoccurring monster of the same name, the figure has been ingeniously kit-bashed using M.U.S.C.L.E’s 104 and 107, coming with an additional stitched leather apron and sword sculpted in epoxy. Produced in an authentic keshi style rubber by Eric Nilla, the little guy is up for grabs in 2 exclusive colourways this time around, a neon orange and neon green, both limited to just 2 figures each. Priced at a very reasonable $12 plus shipping, Pyramid Head can be found in Leviathan’s store right here… Stay tuned for news on the artist’s latest custom, the Cobraking, coming in the next few weeks courtesy of our very own Tru:Tek!

With a number of different options including a budget solid, stainless steel and the preferred hi-res ‘hollow’ finish, the #195 (Sunshine F M.U.S.C.L.E) compatible figure comes with a few modifications to make it a little more suitable to the medium… including a whopping great mace accessory! With prices starting at €16.61 right up to €87.65, SHS can be found in his various forms on the Brown Noize Shapeways page right here
