"Wananeko" the Yokai Cat... a new resin figure from Javier Jimenez!

Here kitty kitty... check out "Wananeko" the newest character and resin art multiple from artist Javier Jimenez!!! "This cat isn’t your ordinary cat; he’s had an incredibly sad and hard life. Upon birth, he was abandoned and forced to live alone as a street cat facing peril and danger. Despite growing incredibly strong due to his rough upbringing on the streets of Japan, he still ended up dying, and out of his hate for humans, became a Yokai...". That's one bad ass cat!

Wananeko was created and designed by Javier himself, sculpted by Cristina Ravenna and hand casted by Rafael Rodriguez Santos. The figures are also painted by Javier Jimenez. The figure is made of resin and stands approximately 4.8" tall... the perfect size!. It will come in a plastic bag with header card and the first release will take place at the Tokyo Cat Fight show that will be held the 5th and 6th of July at the Design Festa Gallery in Harajuku, Tokyo. A very limited edition in the original colorway will be released along with just a few one offs, all hand painted by Javier Jimenez. no word on when these will be available online... but you can hit up Javier's website HERE for up to date info!
