China-based Come4arts is set to release its new City Boy – Gavin figure, as part of its vinyl ‘fashion’ toy line. The casually dapper and slightly eccentric 1:8 scale figure features the talented barber and noted cat lover holding a cat and a black beer can. Stylistically, City Boy follows the two previously-released Smoking Boy vinyl figures. Gavin’s beer can references Come4arts’ previously released the Corner Bar highly-articulated, ball-joint figures which came packaged in special beer can style canisters.
The City Boy – Gavin vinyl art toy (7.87″) will is available for pre-order from Chinese retailers including Chaihezi for ¥299 ($46). International collectors should keep an eye on ToyOpen which is currently offering the Corner Bar figures.
