Funny story about the "Galactic Emperor Mushi." So Chris Para/JafariStew/Tommy Heavenly sent me some mechanicals he was messin' around with...when I saw one it caught my eye and reminded me of Frieza from DBZ. I was a HUGE DBZ fan in the 1990's till around 2006. He told me that his mechanical had no toy homage reference and so I tweaked the colors and paint apps a bit and BOOM...
"Galactic Emperor Mushi" was born!!!
Thanx Chris for sparkin' my love of DBZ with your mechanical.
Huge thanx 2 everyone who came by our booth @D-Con!!! Here are some quick pix of the weekend...
