ReverendSpooky wrote:I actually LOVE Black13Park's stuff! I don't think this is the best thing he's released, but his craftsmanship is pretty unparalleled, and his designs and attention to detail have a really unique aesthetic. There's a huge fashion influence to his designs that you can really see in the tailoring. The animal heads are a part of the background fiction (I think they're like nazi genetic experiments) but even without that, the animal head thing is a pretty common art motif, and you see it everywhere. Hell, one of the big department stores' Christmas windows in NYC a few years ago (I believe it was Bergdorf's) was a bunch of guys in suits with wolf heads. Realism isn't the whole of the industry, and there are huge markets for stylized figures that draw inspiration from urban vinyl, graffiti art, anime, retro cartoons. If you're looking for a "satisfactory explanation" for the existence of figures like this, I'd say that people are into more than just military guys with guns and super heroes, and there's a whole artistic spectrum out there that intersects with the high end action figure market. 5 Points Fest has been running strong for years and is an entire convention of designer toys, graffiti art and craft beer (Clutter Magazine and Lagunitas Brewery are the main presenters). Even if you don't dig the stylized human heads or the animal heads, his tech is so rad and has an original look of it's own.
