Girafarig, I choose you! Vinyl and Pokemon together!


[Originally posted on Tomopop by Leah Bayer]

Let's face it: even though many of us are considered "too old" to play Pokémon, we do it anyway. The same thing could be said of figures. We're sometimes told that we are "too old" to collect toys, but little do these nay-sayers know the awesomeness of vinyl. And when these two awesome things are combined, the result can only be a delicious Poké-custom treat. Adik.na.chinoy over at the Kidrobot message boards has whipped up this delightful Girafarig custom using Raffy, one of the Munnyworld figures, as a base. And even though Girafarigs always freaked me out (why do they have chain chomps on their butts?), this piece really made my day when I saw it.

This is such a creative use of the Raffy platform. I never would have thought of turning one into a Pokémon, but now I want to do a whole series of Pokémon customs! Man, how awesome would a Pokémon-themed blind boxed series be? I think my new goal in life is to re-create my team from Platinum in vinyl form, because I am just that much of a dork. Anyway, I can't wait to see what this artist will come up with next!
