First look at new Splurrt figure!

The other day in NYC, I had the pleasure of meeting up with Joe Merrill, the spurt behind Splurrt, a fast growing, creative, and FUN indy outfit.

Joe brought along a just finished sculpt (still unnamed), which I'm happy to debut for the first time today. It's a new ram head that goes onto the Diggler body. I think Joe knocked it out of the ballpark with this sculpt. It's fantastically crafted, has a lot of character, and fits perfectly onto the Diggler body.

Here's a look at the back:
I love the texture and proportions.
Size comparison next to a Diggler:
With this new ram head, Diggler, Cadaver Kid, and Joe's resins, a nice aesthetic thread linking Joe's figures is revealing itself across the lines.
Next, a few shots of just the head sculpt:
The teeth horns are an inspired feature, and so nicely integrated into the overall design.
 More after the jump:

Imagine walking up to this dude from behind, thinking, "That's a pleasant enough ram fellow" and then getting the toothy shock when he turns around!
Finally, another look at the head sculpt + body:
No word yet on when we can expect to see the figure made into sofubi. Hopefully soon!
