Last year at San Diego Comic Con, I had the pleasure of meeting the fine folks at Toymunkey Studios.  I had my assignments, I photographed their booth, spent some time with them learning more about their product lines, the usual convention stuff.  Toymunkey was a little different, however, than other new companies.  Firstly, their “Top Munkey” Scott was someone who has been around the toy industry most of his life.  As a fan, a collector, and working for various companies.  It was clear this wasn’t his first rodeo, and it shows.  I have been given the honor of being the first to review their inaugural piece, The Red Pyramid Thing 1/6 scale PVC statue based on the very popular film and video game franchise “Silent Hill”

As you can see, the packaging is very high end.  It’s glossy, thick stock, and features a cool grate like cutout, allowing you a glimpse at the horror inside.  You also get a cool collector’s card inside, featuring the same stunning portrait from the packaging, and information on the other side, along with your piece’s individual number.  without further delay, I present the horrifying Red Pyramid Thing.

For those familiar with the title, the art style displays a world that is constantly in a state of decay.  Things become ash, people disintegrate, humanity starts to rust and dissolve.  This theme was evident in the sculpt of this piece.  It’s as if the horrors of that 2D world had been extrapolated and transferred into the 3D plane.  If you look at the cracks in RPT’s helmet, and the attention to the paint applications in every nook and cranny, you’ll begin to see what I mean.  If you’re a fan of the game (I loved the first one personally), you’ll get this idea conveyed immediately upon your first viewing.

This thing just oozes creepy.  I’m pretty blown away by the final paint apps, From the rusty, pitted helmet and blade, to the bruised and bloodied “victim”, it’s obvious that nothing was skimped on.  Google “sub-dermal hematoma”, you’ll see what I mean.

Speaking of the victim, there is an alternate version of this statue which features an all-new paint job, and an even creepier mannequin victim, which is exclusive to San Diego Comic Con this year.

RPT is slated to arrive later this month at places like BBTS , for a SRP of $149.99.  If you’re a fan, it’s a can’t miss; this thing is gorgeous, in a hideous, homicidal way.

I’d like to thank the fine folks at Toymunkey Studios for giving me the opportunity to present RPT to you.  I can’t wait to see what they’ve got up their sleeves next!

No matter how hard you fight it, you will return to Silent Hill.  In my restless dreams, I see that town.
