It took us our first English classes at school to understand that Pokeye actually meant "Pop Eye" so "Clear eye". Yes, our dear sailor is blight, so his little Sobriquet became his name. A name that resonates in us since childhood but already has 90 years. It's in 1929 that discovered it in the comic strip entitled The Thimble Theater With its over-developed forearms and well tempered character. Besides if he spinach carbide (real mystery for us children), he also has the gift of knowing two three punctures well placed at Brutus, which makes a court not possible to olive and is his antagonist forever.
Fools Paradise Anything else with a figurine respectively to his characters. So brutus was in Hypebeast Ultra Balèze, Popeye did not suffer big transformations. We find his mythical blowjob, his cap, his uniform, his tattoo anchor on the forearm and a mustache Most Hype, which makes it straight in the 2000's. Obviously, Fools Paradise has inflated the muscle of the most famous of sailors. We told you that the spinach was great! EditedIn April 2019 in Figurine 34 cm, Popeye de Fools Paradise is to be found on the ZCWO website, who participated in the project.
Of course, others wanted to give their vision of Popeye as Luaiso Lopez, the rising star of Toys designers. He also associated with ZCWO to develop his figurine 24 cm from Popeye. His speciality ? To involve all its Pop Culture references, mix and deliver a result perfectly in the trend. No wonder we see the sailor turn into ... zombie. Yes, they have the rating. All codes are with a hint of decomposition perfectly represented by the blue of its skin and the injuries there. The detail that kills ? Bye Bye Spinach, now Popeye has eyes only for the fresh brain. Available for pre-order on September 27, Zombie Popeye will be sold to $220.
On their side VTSS TOYS, Wines and the new York designer Blank William have decided to create a resin sculpture of 38 cm representing the inescapable Popeye fist. Located on a base, representing a surface that breaks, the Popeye's fist is in action, its anchor tattoo very visible. A wink to one of the most important characteristics of the character. More refined but just as pop as the other figurines, "That's all i can stands, i can't stands no more!" VTSS TOYS X WINES X BLANK WILLIAM is sold at the price of $450 in a hand-made box and edited to 100 copies (50 in white, 50 in black) with a signed and numbered authenticity card. If you are interested, Send an email to VSST TOYS.
As for us, we only have one thing left to say: "Happy birthday Popeye!".
