Shaolin Cowboy 14 Inch Vinyl Figure by Geof Darrow
Every once in a while The Blot is totally blown away by the announcement of an upcoming release. A perfect example of this is when news spread around the internet that Geof Darrow, one of The Blot’s all time favorite comic book artists, had teamed up with Wednesday’s Finest and Monster 5 to create a new vinyl figure based on his popular Shaolin Cowboy comic book character! Shaolin Cowboy is one of those legendary ongoing comic book series that never comes out (i.e. it goes on hiatus for years between issues), but fans still go crazy for any time it’s mentioned. That’s a true testament for the amazing work Geof Darrow produces!
Geof Darrow’s Shaolin Cowboy vinyl figure stands 14” tall, was sculpted by Monster 5 and produced by Wednesday’s Finest. For now two colorways of this figure have been planned, the Regular Comic Book Edition with a run size of only 300 pieces, and an as of yet unannounced colorway of Geof’s choosing. The Blot can’t wait to get my hands on one of these!!! Just think how awesome it’d look next to Super7’s Tao King vinyl figure (also based on the artwork of Darrow).

Shaolin Cowboy is a series from Dark Horse Comics and if you haven’t read it then you’re missing out. I won’t drone on and on about it, but it really good so get caught up on it. In fact they just released a magazine so that should be easier to find. Wednesday’s Finest has teamed up with creator Geof Darrow to create a 14″ vinyl figure for the character and it’s pretty bad ass if you ask me. It’s sculpted by Monster 5 and the first run totals to 500 figures with 300 in the comic book colorway and the remaining to be determined by Darrow.

If you’re interested then you’ll be able to get on in late February or early March for $110.00 bucks. Here’s a link to pre-order if you’re gunning for it right now and there is some more info and pictures after the jump.

Lastly, here’s some info on Wednesday’s finest:

Wednesday’s Finest is a creator friendly company that really seeks to remain true to the creators image and desires in producing various consumer products.  For example, this figure was completely Geof Darrow’s design…he provided the artwork and certain specifications that we adhered to.  If the creator is behind it, then I know the fans will be too.
