We’ve all had our share of lousy days, but it’s safe to say that our poor puppet pal is having one one of the worst ever. Fools Paradise’s Pino // I Had A Bad Day vinyl art toy sees the wooden boy transformed into a wicked Joker. With his splotchy DIY makeup and his forced smile, this fairy tale has turned into a nightmare.
The devil as they say, is in the details. Fools Paradise fleshes out the mashup concept with thoughtful deco touches throughout including Pino’s dirt smudged clothes and the spot-on sloppy makeup style including the uneven areas at the top of his forehead. Building up the mood, our tormented Pino takes a break on a simple, yet realistically textured concrete block — all alone in his twisted world. Dare we ask what’s become of the cricket companion? The new Pino figure follows the more upbeat Clockwork Pino releases.
A made-to-order edition of no more than 499, the Pino // I Had A Bad Day vinyl art toy (13″) vinyl art toy is available for pre-order from Fools Paradise for $368 (worldwide shipping included). The figure is slated to ship in Q1 2022. Please note that the product photos are of a prototype. The final figure may feature slight changes or variations from the prototype.
