*REVEALED* Gary Ham's "Wooper Looper" sofubi figure set to release at SDCC 2012

The time has finally come, "Wooper Looper" designed by Gary Ham is finally seeing his first release at SDCC 2012 and as I know personally, having been the first person to see him last year at SDCC 2011 when Chauskoskis pulled the freshly sculpted proto from his bag and Gary layed eyes on it... this has been a long road. Wooper Looper may be simple looking in design, but the little guy pushed the limits of sofubi production. In talking with Gary, this little critter proved to be quite a challenge and overcame many production hurdles to be the very best that he can be, and standing at 5.25" tall, bagged with header card... which by the way Gary is making all of these headers by hand using a wood block printing process so each header will be unique, and you can see the header image below... cool!

Above is a shot of the first painted version of Gary's Wooper Looper, and it will be limited to 100 pieces. Also planned for SDCC is the release of a pink "unpainted" version... and although there is no set word on pricing, expect these to retail for around the $45-$65 range. I seriously love the way this turned out... and I am sure so many other folks out there are as stoked as I am for this release!!!! Make sure to visit Gary's booth #4836 to snag one up as well as a ton more other goodies!!!
