Fools Paradise giving us brand new variants of their Super Professional sculpt
Pop culture play a huge role in the toy world. There are a lot of pieces that pull inspiration from various movies, tv shows, and video games. Artists seem to know that collectors are a sucker for nostalgia! In fact, Fools Paradise has taken a fan-favorite character and mashed him up with a cult classic movie for THREE killer releases that are sure to take out the competition! Introducing, Super Professional!
The Super Professional Tmall GID (Star Power-Up) variant (whew!) sees our mustachioed friend decked out for action in even the darkest of nights! Taking its name to heart, this 50 cm behemoth shines a bright green and blue glow from would make any Super Mario player proud! Coming in at a cool $285, this one is slated for a Q1 2021 release.
Is glow not for you? Well great news, Super Professional Tmall Nightmare edition was made just for you! This variant dons the classic Leon the Professional colors and we see an exchange of the piranha plant for a beautiful lily. This is also the first variant that has Leon’s briefcase! Another 50 cm giant, this one also comes in at $285 with a Q1 2021 release.
The GID Super Professional 2 is the final Mario x Leon release in the trio. This one sees a rerelease of the highly sought after (and extremely sold out) Super Professional 2. This time, in stunning glow-in-the-dark. Here we see our favorite plumber leaning against a warp pipe, flashing the bob-ombs on his waist. Our favorite princess looks on, gun at the ready. GID Super Professional 2 is set for a Q2 2021 release at $448 (including worldwide shipping)
All 3 of these misfits are available for pre-order now, directly from Fools Paradise! Keep in mind all their pieces are made to order, but judging from the photos, these will be worth the wait!
