The first of 3 new additions to the Dominant Species series, Leather Back is the latest custom from UK based graffiti artist, Hoakser. Towering above Jack, Why Front, Polkadot and Unknown, Leather Back was originally an Incredible Hulk figure, that with hours of burning, sculpting, spraying, and brushing has become one of Hoakser’s strongest customs to date. Coming with his own dioramic plinth (replete with the remains of his last opponent!), Leather Back will be available alongside his 4 brothers on the Hoakser eBay store soon. Expect news on the remaining cast of the Dominant Species (the Medic and Three Fourths) to follow next week…
“This is Leatherback, wounded in battle, he had his arm pulled off, but don’t worry it will grow back…He used to be an Incredible Hulk figure who was missing an arm already,he was given to me by a friend..After hours of work, he is now the biggest member of the crew with the most muscle..”- Hoakser
Hot off the heels of last weeks reveal of Polkadot, Hoakser brings the latest addition to the Dominant Species in the form of ‘Unknown”. Differing from his pant wearing sidekicks, the 16cm tall custom wrestling figure has been spared his dignity, sporting a sweet t-shirt and shorts combo instead. Burned, brushed and sprayed to perfection, Unknown (alongside “Union Jack”, “Whyfront?” and “Pokadot”) is currently available in the Hoakser store for £69.99 plus shipping. Anyone purchasing the figure will also be treated to an original customised sketch, plus certificate of authenticity…
Ok, one last post whilst we gear up for the switch on Monday!
Polkadot is the latest custom graffiti figure to drop from UK artist Hoakser’s Dominant Species range (originally posted here). Joining both Union Jack and Why Not? into the fray, the heavily customised wrestling figure stands at around 16cm tall, coming with a whopping 9 points of articulation.
Available to purchase now for £64.99 plus shipping at the Hoakser shop, Polkadot will wing his way to one lucky collector with a personalised Hoakser sketch and certificate of authenticity. Anyone interested should hit the store now, Polkadot wont be around for long!
Thanks to Hoakser for the heads up!
