“Monkey with a Gun” statue. Designed by Mike Mignola, sculpted and produced by Bigshot Toyworks
Some artistic images are instantly iconic, resonating with audiences across the planet as they receive some unspoken message delivered directly to the viewer. They’ll say “It’s a message about gun violence in our schools,” or “It’s a reminder to always question who holds the power and how much power we give them.” Or maybe it’s
Some artistic images are instantly iconic, resonating with audiences across the planet as they receive some unspoken message delivered directly to the viewer. They’ll say “It’s a message about gun violence in our schools,” or “It’s a reminder to always question who holds the power and how much power we give them.”
Or maybe it’s just a monkey holding a gun, drawn by the unmistakable hand of Mike Mignola of Hellboy fame!
With a love that knows no bounds for Mike’s body of amazing work, Bigshot Toyworks is proud to present “Monkey With A Gun,” a limited-edition, hand-crafted polystone statue standing 9.5 inches tall with a faux-bronze paint application. Based on Mike Mignola’s striking image of the same name, the Monkey with a Gun figure was crafted with great care by the wizards at Bigshot Toyworks. The result is a must-have piece that will be the center of any die-hard Mignola fan’s art collection, not to mention a striking point of conversation amid a comic book lover’s displays. Of course, you don’t need to be either of those things to appreciate this killer translation from page to three dimensions, with all the requisite monkey angst included at no extra cost.
Monkey with a Gun will be limited to 666 pieces and will come packaged in a deluxe gift box packaging. This unique work of art will not be produced again in this format.
Preorder customers will receive a signed and numbered letterpress print available only during the pre sale window (DATES).
