Outer Darkness/Chew #1

Better, Stronger, Faster: It’s Secret Agent Poyo from Skelton Crew Studio!!

Chew fans, Skelton Crew Studio has one for you as they’ve revealed their brand new Secret Agent Poyo! The new bust statue is 4.75-inches of cybernetically enhanced rooster, bursting out of a steel crate base, ready to kick ass, break hearts and take names.

Poyo is scultped by Jamie Macfarlane and the base is covered with Rob Guillory-isms like “Danger! Murderous bird inside!” and “PANIC NOW.”

The original mini-bust sold out of its run of 500 in 2014, so the Crew are doing something a littl different for this one. Secret Agent Poyo is ONLY going to be available to order for one month, til Oct. 16 — then they’ll set the run size and his badass will be no more. In “CHEW” merch tradition, each Secret Agent Poyo will come with a fight ticket signed by John Layman and Rob Guillory! Who’s Poyo’s unlucky opponent? MacGregor? Mayweather? MacGregor AND Mayweather?! You’ll just have to order and see!

Skelton Crew Studio has also announced their Savoy statue has passed through U.S. Customs like a deft ninja and will soon be on his way to New England. Once he arrives, they’ll do the usual thorough inspection and hope to start shipping before the end of October!

Skelton Crew Studio Releases Mason Savoy Details to Chew On!

After lots of hints and teases Skelton Crew Studio has released the details on their Mason Savoy mini-bust!

Chew‘s Mason Savoy mini-bust will be going up for pre-order in the next 7-10 days. In case you missed, Savoy is going to be HUGE. Skelton makes all of their busts to scale with one another, as you can peep below.

Savoy is going to be more than 7.5 inches tall and twice as wide as Tony Chu — Tony doesn’t call him Fat Man for nothing. See how he towers over Tony and Poyo? Bad. Ass.

Skelton Crew Studio has already made 500 sold-out Poyos three years ago and 450 sold-out Tonys 18 months ago.

How many Savoy are they making? WE get to decide.

Savoy is going to be available for just ONE MONTH only, so grab him while he’s grab-able, and he’s going to be Kickstarter-style.

  • Once they crest 200 orders, boom!, he’s officially in production. Under 200 and that’s us telling Skelton no thank you, although given his looming gorgeousness and all-around awesomeness, I think we all hope that doesn’t happen.
  • Once they hit 250 orders, boom!, every order up to order no. 300 receives a bonus exclusive Fanboy vinyl Chog. Can’t “beet” that, can ya?!
  • And EVERY Savoy is signed by “CHEW”‘s amazing duo, John Layman and Rob Guillory! Because they’re great like that.
