Jeff Lamm's new "Spike Wad" figure teaser #3

I have been slacking on my coverage of London's Toy Fair 2012 -more posts to come - but I have been keeping track via Unbox Industries Twitter stream over the past few days, and I gotta say there are some really fun new figures coming out that they are producing. One of which we have covered multiple times HERE and HERE is Jeff Lamm's upcoming "Spike Wad" figure... which by the way made his way into the wild and was on display at LTF (pictured to the left). This character is a familiar face if you follow Jeff's gig poster work and according to Jeff he has four arms, shipped with two front ones unattached so they fit in the bag... and he will be interchangeable with the other Unbox toys... meaning 'M5 BRAVO' & 'STEE-GAR' will have a buddy :-) According to Jeff "Spike Wad is a fairly new large mutant spider. It's origins are unknown, some say it first appeared in the area of the Large Hadron Collider on the border of France and Switzerland. It was given the military nomenclature "Spider Quad" which was shortened to "Spi-Quad" and finally "Spike Wad"." You gotta love the look of this intergalactic being... and check out that under-bite, he's adorable, and fierce all wrapped into one 4 armed figure! There is still no word on a release... but after seeing paint laid down on vinyl... we can't be too far away now!
