Penguins vs. Possums tells the story of a secret war that has been going on underneath our noses since the beginning of time: the inter-species Armageddon between Penguins and Possums! As this conflict boils to the surface, every human on the planet will soon be forced to CHOOSE A SIDE! The creators of the comic book series have thus far released five issues and a trade paperback to the delight of critics and fans alike, with many more issues to come.
Cast in plastic resin from a hand-sculpted mold, the PVP Minis stand at a mighty height of 2- 2.5” tall and consist of characters from both sides of the crusade. Available figures include Zolin (Captain of the Possum Guard) and the Possum Blacksmith, as well as Penguin Emperor Xiao and members of the Penguin Aerial Assault Team and Trooper Squad. These pocket-sized playmates make great collectibles, but their sturdy, plastic frame allows even PVP’s youngest pals to join in on the fun and CHOOSE A SIDE!
"The PVP Minis harken back to the figures I collected in the ‘80s,” says Penguins vs. Possums creator Sebastian Kadlecik. “They share attributes with the old green army men, Muscle Men, and Ninja Turtles from my youth. These guys are tough! They are adorable, funny, and badass, and, in that way, I think they are very successful in conveying the tone and heart of Penguins vs. Possums!”
The penguin and possum figures are now available for sale in the Fanboy Comics Online Store. Unpainted figures are available at a cost of $5.00 each, while select hand-painted figures are available for $10.00 and include a character trading card! Collect all five hand-painted figures for only $40.00! The figures will also be on sale at Long Beach Comic Expo from February 28-March 1, 2015, at the Fanboy Comics table (#A2) in Artists' Alley.
