We here at Nerd City are huge fans of the design of the Sifu Monk figure from our pal Veggiesomething’s House of Liu line. We were, therefore, super jazzed when he passed along to us these pics and info about the ultra limited edition AP version of said character. From the extra posh packaging to the additional accessories to the freaking led eyes, this would be an awesome centerpiece to any House of Liu collection. However, if you want one, you’ll need to head over to Veggiesomething’s site at 1p.m. CST on Thursday, 3/11(and, maybe a little luck!).
Edition Size: 3
Price: $80 + cost of shipping (I tried to make it for the fans and recession friendly )
On Sale Date: Thursday, 3/11 at 1pm CST
The AP Sifu differs from the standard Sifu in the following ways: The AP has flashing red LED and hand painted gold stars for the eyes. There is an acrylic VGS speech bubble on the top of head. The spear tassels were also hand painted. The AP comes in a vintage-like wooden box.
It took me so long to release these APs because at first, I didn’t want to interfere with the sales of the monks at the different retailers. I thought I would wait a little before releasing them. I also decided that I wanted to do something special with the APs other than just painting or signing them. I looked into a bunch of ideas, but they all turned out to be way too costly as I wanted the APs to sell for less than $100. After months of different revisions and attempts in trying to battle the cost, I finally gave up and decided to do this release for the fans and not worry about the profits. Once that was decided, I then had some troubles in getting some of the parts that were needed. Delays after delays – these APs turned out to be truly labors of love. :p
