You know what is the greatest pain Batman’s arch nemesis, Bane, experiences? Probably not the gas mask that he wear to continuously suppresses his excruciating pain; it is probably how he have to witness an ice cream melting before him because he can’t eat it (because of the mask). Ok. I get it. That’s a lame joke, because Bane can eat and drink. All he have to do is to remove the mask and feed himself the painkiller externally, presumably as he consumes his meal. But that doesn’t take away the fun of Fools Paradise interpretation of Bane sulking over a fast melting ice cream he held in his hand and standing next to a coin-operated kiddie ride of the The Dark Knight’s iconic ride, the Tumbler. The camo one, of course. The matte black is still with the cape crusader. Continue reading Fools Paradise: Is Bane Sulking Over The Melted Ice Cream He Can’t Eat?
Independent vinyl figures collectors take note. Fools Paradise and teamed up with Thailand street fashion label Hold’Em Denim and toy brand JPX to issue a very limited Fools x Paradise x Hold’em by JPX vinyl figures, called I want to be ZauZ. With the set you will find two figures adorned with unique “3 straps” signature band on them. The set depicts Fool’s tattoo-obsessed alternate ’Batman’ (complete with undersized cap, of course, and disgruntle look, as always) being inked by a scrawny dude which appears to come with an alternate head sculpture.

Fools’ latest vinyl figure may not go down well with a lot of people, let alone hardcore Star Wars fans, but me? I am totally digging it. Not because it is a slender and curvy female figure in cropped top flaunting an anime standard of ‘perfect body’ (I promised, it isn’t), but because it is a playful take of Star Wars’s Imperial Scout Trooper, who in this case is an obvious female, riding a coin-operated speeder bike. To some extend, you can say that this is a sexist piece, like so many Japanese anime figurines are, but you can also take it with an open mind and think of it as a cheeky tribute to the character it took after – like it has always been with Fools’ other masterpieces. Continue reading Scout. Troop at Coin Rides Game Vinyl: Sexist Or Cheeky? You Be The Judge.
What you see here is Hong Kong independent toy maker Fools’ latest vinyl called Three King Two Three, which is a homage to one of the greatest basketball player of our time: Michael Jordan – complete in his famous Chicago Bulls number 23 jersey, but obviously, this collectible is not sanction by Chicago Bulls, nor it is licensed by NBA, or the man himself. We are not sure how it works, but I am guessing, there’s a loop hole in this licensing game since Fools did not explicitly said that it was Jordan. Anyways, priced at $249 plus shipping, this 13-inch vinyl figure comes with a handful of miniature basketballs by “Floating” sized to the vinyl figure. Continue reading Fools Pay Homage To Michael Jordan With This Awesome Vinyl Figure
Just when we thought the The Last Ride vinyl figure was ridiculously awesome, Fools take it up several notches with another even more awesome edition, called The Last Why: JP Toys Exclusive. This latest edition proves that colors can do wonder to the vinyl figure character. In this edition, Lowfool’s ‘Batman’ garb is splashed in the iconic Joker’s color, namely purple and bright green and peppered with graffiti, infusing an air of mischief to the figure and clearly, a homage to Jared Leto’s Joker in the big screen adaptation of DC Comics’ Suicide Squad. Continue reading The Last Why: JP Toys Exclusive Is A Clear Homage To Jared Leto’s Joker
Can’t get enough of cutesy version of superheroes that are sometimes too sweet to handle? Well, if that’s the case, Fools’ Batman The Last Ride Vinyl Figure might just be right up your alley. Fools’ character, Lowfool is now garbed in classic Batman costume and bestowed with much exaggerated muscles with, if you must know, prominently protruding nipples, along with rather tiny legs like Mr. Incredible. Though his legs aren’t that tiny; they are more like squarish which adds to charm and not to mention, overall stability of the figure. Continue reading Lowfool Dressed Up As Batman, Ponders Over A Tumbler Kiddie Ride
If you like comics and love the idea of caricaturised action or vinyl figures, I am sure you will be all over the Superman Playing Arcade Vinyl Figure by Fools. Officially called Lowfool vs Lowfool: Inner Conflict, this vinyl/PVC figure depicts Lowfool in Superman getup, seated and hunched over an arcade machine, playing a game of “Fools Fighter II” where his in-game self is facing off with a “Batman” Lowfool. Lowfool here is all hunky chunky with bulging muscle on his upper torso but like Mr. Incredible, it has lower limbs that are considerably tinier – a trait of a cartoonish character. Those anatomy, together with an angular face, frowning but fiery red eyes and topped with a Tom Selleck kind of smart ‘stash makes Lowfool irresistibly adorable.
