Um, how rad is this? You might have caught this picture some seemingly hundred or so posts back as I was kicking off my Comic-Con coverage by revisiting some “new old vinyl”. Here’s how it happened.
Jermaine Rogers‘ Comic-Con booth contained a single case bearing the remaining Specimen and Squire vinyls produced by STRANGEco in the mid-2000s. While perusing (and then picking up) some awesome prints, it came to be that Matt and I each needed to get a figure “defaced” by Mr. Rogers.
My excellent new GID Specimen is imbued with the sentiment: “Kill Yr Ego. Find Yrself.” Matt chose a pink Squire. Classic Matt.
The new vinyls on display were Rogers’ Aleppin Sane busts. The character originated in a gig poster he did a few years back, and now it’s been brought to life as a 3D vinyl bust by Plastic City. Click HERE for more info on Plastic City at Comic-Con.
