ALAVAKA VANAPRASTHA

DHP is excited to announce another collaboration with DSKI ONE. This time Alavaka wanders the deserts outside of Mesa, AZ as he looks for the perfect spot to sit and reflect. The Vanaprastha aim to give up worldly life and such is the way for Alavaka as the sculpt prepares for retirement this year. See below for official Lulubell press release.


 "Alavaka Vanaprastha" is a new micro run of Alavaka by Devils Head Productions, painted by Dski One. This release marks the start of journey to the bodhi tree for a long rest for Alavaka, who made his debut back in 2013. Alavaka will be making a few last appearances in Fall of 2018 before resting undisturbed and contemplating his future for some time. In the meantime, Devils Head Productions has two new sculpts in the works for the future, and fan favorites Apalala and Jizo-Anarcho will continue on their material journey with new releases planned for the near future.


In Sanskrit, Vanaprastha is the stage of life and process of giving up the worldly and more material aspect of life, transitioning one's efforts into that of a greater emphasis on spiritual pursuits. Alavaka Vanaprastha is a micro run featuring a ghostly, milky white base vinyl painted with orange, magenta, green, blue and purple sprays with hand painted detailing. Hand poured resin eyes and a lotus flower add a beautiful final touch as he offers his peaceful farewell to this stage of his journey.


Sold blind, with  2 GID vinyl chase figures possible in this micro run. Each toy comes with the standard body and both heads. Dski One pulled this color pallet from the common depictions of the Hindu lord Vishnu. Alavaka Vanaprastha ascends exclusively into Lulubell's online store this Friday, September 7th at Noon Pacific Time (7pm GMT). $80 + shipping, includes alternate head.

SUMMERTIME ROLLS 2018

Summer is in full swing and it's time for some summertime toys! First up it's the Summertime Rolls Jizo-Anarcho. Riffing off the very obvious stolen namesake, these Jizo have that awesome chill summer vibe from head to toe. Cast in soft army green Japanese vinyl and painted with shades of yellow, soft blue and silver sprays they go up in the webshop on August 4th.




Up next, it's the return of the Alavaka Bodhisattva D.I.Y. kits. As we prepare to give the molds for this guy a rest there has been one final pour in both Milky White and GID vinyl to let customizers give Alavaka new life. These are the final versions of these kits before they go out of stock so grab some today! Available August 4th.



Finally, a few 1 off Jizo-Anarcho's will also hit the webshop this Saturday. Some crazy cool colorways on both clear and neon pink vinyl. Grab one and own a Jizo that is unlike any other out there.

SMASH JIZO-ANARCHO RELEASE

So the new Avengers movie comes out this Friday (April 27th) and while I've kindda reached my fill of super hero content, who doesn't love a good classic hulk tribute colorway. A gritty, dirty purple paint rub is featured here and it has been glossed over with clear sprays of green and purple complimented by subtle metallic sprays. Of course there is a battle damaged 1 off chase that will ship at random. The chase features some dark areas of bruising splattered by sprays of blood from Jizo's pummeled victims. Hit up the DHP webshop this Friday to grab one.
