Wetworks @ #StarWarsDaySG 2016

Spotted at the 2016 Edition of Star Wars Day SG was a very surprising spread from TOYSREVIL blog-regular Carlo Andrada Cacho AKA "Wetworks"!

Situated beside Boyan Customs' spread, the folks at OCBC Square (outside Kallang Wave Mall), on display were his carded 1/12th-scaled figures I've featured before but had never expected to be able to see them up close and personal, and in public too!

The blister cardbacks featured fanart work from diverse artists and illustrators, a couple of whom even works for Disney too (I am told). NONE of the figure were on sale though, and was purely for display purposes … except for these guys;

Two distinct carded figures were on display: Matt The Radar Technician and Boba Fett - both of whom were on auction, with partial sales proceeds to benefit charity.

With the popularity of these pieces, I'd bugged Carlo to produce them in limited quantities for fans, but alas they will remain as one-offs.

Folks can look forward to his resin Ewok-themed Warbrook, and a "Han & Chewie" set tho!

As well on show were two painted resin Stormtrooper heads, with the left one meant for a show at SubUrban Vinyl (but alas did not make the event in time), and the other had actress Felicity Jones as "Jyn Erso" from "Rogue One" on the top.

You are recommended to stake out his Instagram @iamwetworks and online store, for your SW and art toy needs!

Cheers
