Save yourselves from the "Mechawhales"!!!

This concept has been kicking around for what seems like a few years now, and Hauke Scheer of Deep Fried Figures GmbH has just announced that his PVC "Mechawhale" have been released... and perfect timing as the world needs some badass mech whales in it!!! "In the distant future mankind is aided by intelligent whales in giant robot suits to fight against an invading army of alien marauders. Will the Mechawhales save the day?" You may remember some of the crazy characters and figures that Hauke has released in the past like his "Crazy Bathroom Robot U.R.I.-NAL 9000", or his "Bionic Bjoern"... well this figure is just as crazy! Watch the video... it's nuts!!!

We actually posted up some protos of this figure HERE a while back, and as you can see, it's 100% complete and ready to save the world! The Mechawhales figure is 5.5 inches wide and 3.5 inches tall. Like mentioned above, it's made from PVC and has a highly detailed paintjob. The shoulders, wrists and tail can be rotated... giving you 5 points of articulation. The figure also comes in a collector friendly box as well as a cardboard diorama for displaying the figure outside the box. It's like a crazy mech suit with a whale slapped onto it... RAD!!! These are just $45 a pop and can be picked up HERE!
