Artist Chairman666 has just unveiled the latest figure from his Purple Toy imprint, the awesome Youth Tiger (清河联合)! Whilst info on the piece is still thin on the ground at present, it would appear that the demonic pro wrestler has been loosely based on the iconic Tiger Mask, featuring similar boots, pants and headgear as the legendary fighter. Utilising a simple 2-part design that we’re presuming has been cast in soft vinyl by production partner Unbox Industries, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for Youth Tiger’s first release very soon. Keep a close eye on Chairman666’s Instagram feed here for the full lowdown!
