REVIEW: JOE LEDBETTER x MUNKY KING GOOD MORNING SUNSHINE ‘MONKEY’ EDITION

IMG_3951Up for review today is the latest release from the team over at Munky King Toys. They have teamed up with the artist Joe Ledbetter to produce a three dimensional version of his famed ‘Good Morning Sunshine’ painting. We were lucky enough to get our hands on the ‘Monkey’ edition which is a perfect translation of the original painting colors. This 8″ tall vinyl figure features five points of articulation, great paint work, and is limited to just 500 pieces world wide.

As you can see from this face detail shot above the paint work came out very crisp on this piece. After taking a close look all over this figure I was not able to find any sign of bleeding or blemishes any where in the paint. I have always enjoy Ledbetter’s style and the hard edges found on his figures. It really translates well when transferred from art to toy which in my opinion makes for a perfect art toy.

My only complaint with  this figure is the arm joints seem a little loose. The only reason this is an issue is because the heavy fists weight down the arms which limits the poses that you can put the figure in. But, the fists down pose works well and will look great in any JLed collection.

Overall I think if you are a fan of JLed’s art you will enjoy this figure! It is a very cool character the translated perfect to vinyl. It also is made very well which helps to justify the $95 retail price. If you are interested in picking up one of these figures for your collection you can find them HERE or at your favorite designer toy retailer.
