{     Gary Baseman - Fire Water Bunny     }    

Originally produced for distribution at a Taiwanese Children's Festival, these magical little creatures have begun to trickle into the States and are getting snatched up like things that get snatched up really fast. It may actually be hard to find them right now outside of the usual price-gouging auctions and secondhand markets, though Canadian boutique/gallery/toystore Magic Pony and Chicago badasses Rotofugi seem to still have a few in stock. Produced as a joint venture between Pao & Paws and Critterbox (mmmm... Critterbox....) there are four different designs (BONES, ALL-SEEING, AQUA and NAKED) offered in blind packaging. An ultra-rare "white" version exists as well, and seems only to have been available overseas and in extremely limited quantity at special events Stateside. Get them before somebody else does.

Comments

My original review included mention of a rumor that these designs might be showing up in a 10" format, via Critterbox. That rumor has proven to be unfounded.
It IS true, however, that Baseman's "Dunce" series (originally produced as a 3" capsule toy for Japan's Sony Creative) will be brought to life in a 10"-12" version.

I just got my Fire Water Bunny pieces in the mail last night (Thanks Ningyoushi.com!!!) and I can't tell you how happy I am with them. The incredibly detailed paint application amazes me, especially at this diminuitive scale. The fact that Critterbox is able to so accurately translate the Baseman look and feel into 3 dimensions in a 3" format is just astounding.
Let the drooling begin....
