It’s been a long time, but I created a one-of-a-kind custom art toy using the Tenacious Toys pit bull mascot vinyl toy as a base figure. Titled “Danger Foo”, this custom was painted with gold Chinese accents and designs, along with a large Foo Dog design (as seen on my outsmART originals/Tenacious Toys t-shirts) on the back of the head!
Adorned with a lucky red collar and gold spikes, yet painted black to give it a touch of danger, this is a unique custom art piece that will not be reproduced by me, and was for sale at the Tenacious Toys booth #780 during New York Comic Con 2018.
Enjoy the official pics of this art piece below!
The way this custom art piece was sold comes with an interesting story; I stopped by Tenacious Toys booth #780 after having arrived at NYCC on 10/5, with the goal to buy the 1000toys Toa Heavy Industries 1/6 Synthetic Human Test Body figure. While I was in the process of buying it, at the exact same time, someone came by the booth and bought my custom Danger Foo art toy! The irony here, is that the guy who bought my custom is the president/CEO of 1000toys! Chuichi Ono!! What a trippy but awesome coincidence! I had Ono and his friend sign my 1000toys figure!!! So cool!!!
Thank you Ono and Takashi (sorry if I spelled your name wrong)!!!! Enjoy the custom as I will enjoy your figure!
