With Mardi Gras having come and gone, that means only one thing related to the world of vinyl figures: the Kidrobot Mardivale series has been floating around for a week. With twelve listed figures on the box between Scribe and Andrew Bell and mixed ratios, it really is anyone’s guess as to whose figure you will pull. While at Rotofugi we picked up three boxes to try our luck and pulled the following figures.
As you can tell, we pulled (somehow) three of Scribe’s figures which the sailor saxaphonist, the skeleton costume, and the pilot costume. The figures come out of the box solid. The pilot features all printing (no sculpting), the skeleton obviously features the bones out of the head and the actual sculpted front teeth, and the sailor features a sculpted beard to make it a full-figured figure.
As we can see with the backs of the figures, some contain features that make the figures coherent with full-figure designs. The pilot figure lacks anything on the back of the head which is a slight bit boring that is it just the plain white back of his head where by comparison the skeleton costume features at least a zipper and the saxophone player has the beard wrap around the head and suspenders in the back. From the looks of the three figures, the pad prints as at least improved compared to previous series and the new sculpts open up possibilities for those that needed some new challenges. The blind boxed figures can be found at your local or online retailers.
