Beyond - Wong Ka Kui 12" figure.
Hot Toys updated with some images and info about the BEYOND - Wong Ka Kui 12" figure. Hot Toys created a series called "M Icon". This figure is part of this "M Icon" series. "M Icon" series is to release some Iconic person that left us. James Dean is part of this series as well.
Other than the green jacket (memorial auction version), [yahooHK charity auction] there are another 2 versions available for public collectors. They are the red jacket ( Beyond 1993 - Rock & Roll album version ). That album considered one of the best Beyond Album...but it is their last with Ka Kui in it. Figure designed base on this album the outfit that Ka Kui wearing.
The other version is called ( Beyond 1992 LIVE performance version ). The design is base on their LIVE concert.
Both figures expect to release end of June or early July. Each cost $850 HKD each. I'll probably go for both versions and my brother is going for the LIVE performance version.
Several years ago Beyond performed in Toronto and I'm lucky to have a CD that signed by the remaining 3 members except Ka Kui. This is something that I will cherish forever........
Part of my childhood is listening to their song....grow up together with their music. This figure is truly a meaningful piece for me and my brother.
Gotta give credit to Korean sculptor Yulli and J.C. Hong color producer. You make the figure look alive.
