Sharkastator for The Blue Collar Toy Show

I was very honored to have been asked to contribute to the Blue Collar Toy Show, hosted by my friends at Madknits.  The group show will open July 13th at the Hope Artiste Village in Pawtucket, RI, and will feature a couple of pieces from me, as well as work from many of my friends and favorite artists.
For my first contribution to the show, I did this crazy mashup of the traditional Galaxxor body with the Lucha Shark head. I've always loved the look of that old Killer Carp figure from Battle Beasts, and this colorway is loosely inspired by him. In the end, this could represent a super armored Lucha Shark, or a wildly mutated rogue Galaxxor, or that I'm just losing my mind. In any case, I've decided to dub this mashed up monstrosity "Sharkastator".

Sharkastator is a 1/1 5.5" art figure that will never be painted in this manner again.The figure was originally sculpted by Ben Spencer, cast in resin by Marty "The Godbeast" Hansen, and hand painted by Ben Spencer. The figure features 2 points of articulation (shoulders). Sharkastator will be $90.
