PiercingMetal Thoughts: I first saw these editions at Five Points Festival a couple of years ago and while they are not my thing at the end of the day, they are super cool if you are a collector of stylized figures and statues. I hope that any fans of these limited editions that is heading to SDCC next month are able to get their hands on the ones that they want. Until we meet again.
