"When designing, the first thing that comes to my mind is how to present the characters with a new twist, giving them a new breath of design, (while still) maintaining my style, and yet people will still recognize (the characters). This is the main challenge for me. Second to that, are the coloring issues…" - shared WanKok.

"…For instance, the Golden Droid. It poses some difficulties because of it’s “gold” color. To capture the right kind of gold is not easy. I have tried different approaches of painting, tested with various brands of Gold colors. Adding to the challenge is the weathering effect on him. (I had never intended) to have him looking "shiny and brand new". I want him to look a bit (worn-out).

On the designing aspect - as you can see - the abdoment of Golden Droid. Instead of plain wires going around, I had purposely made them look like “intestines”. I like gory stuff :)"
- revealed WanKok.


(Above) LONG EAR
- Figure Dimension: 5W x 6.5L x 18H in cm
- Wooden stand: 6.5 cm
- Worldwide Limited Edition: 25pcs

(Above) MERCENARY HUNTER
- Figure Dimension: 6W x 4.5L x 23H in cm
- Wooden stand: 6.5 cm
- Worldwide Limited Edition: 25pcs
"The main challenge this time is different from Golden Droid. It is the issue of proportion. The very first design is very different from what you see now. I disliked the initial design and scrapped the whole sculpture. The proportion just did not click with my taste. I changed the head, making it way smaller and elongated the body. I dressed him with a cape covering half his shoulder, all the way back. With the cape flowing, it has a feel of a "monk" hunter." - shared WanKok Leong of 1000Tentacles
