Mutant Head by Lash | Mutant Vinyl Hardcore

An Interview with Rich | Lash

Can you give us a little background about yourself?
I am just the average guy. I pretty much wake up and it's all about toys until I hit the pillow. I even have my dinner table situated so that I face my to the cabinets. Hold up, this is the average guy right?

How did you first get into Kaiju?
Through a buy at Toy Tokyo. I used to collect Western Toys, mainly Kaws. But once I had a few Japanese Toys in hand it was a wrap!

When did you start doing commission work?
I don't know really, it just sort of happened. I used to buy stuffs, acetone and repaint them. After doing so many I think people started to want something that I hadn't done yet. I really did a ton of RxH customs, actually thats all I really wanted to paint being as it was my favorite toy company. So if you liked what I was doing but didn't collect RxH, you would just ask me, I think it just kept up.

What are your influences?
I have so many painted toys. But I think my main vision is the look and feel of the 70's Choppers and Hotrods. I just love anything bright, metallic and sparkly.
But on any given day, it could be anything. I live in a pretty good area for artist in New Heaven. There's a lot of us. I actually just got in to my cituss artist directory.

How many RxH figures do you own and what was the most expensive one that you purchased?
I would say I have a good 50 or more. But I really like the older stuff more than anything. The newer stuff is great, but I liked the less masked stuff more. I would say my most expensive one would be the 1st Mutant Evil, the yellow one with green and purple spray. I LOVE him. "O" and my clear pink Booska Mutant Head, yeah, the Mutant Head is probably my favorite..... . I think.... my mind changes daily.

What else do you collect?
Right now, I am focusing on the larger sized figures. The cruder the better!

Any updates on the MVH figure?
Plenty progress, but I think after the last head shot update. I am going to hold off on any more images and wait until it's in the vinyl and painted stage before you see him again. I have given a lot of images away. I never get to see any progress of these figures that I collect and wanted to show people out there the process and what goes into getting a toy made. But right now, I think I have shown enough for you guys to get the feel. So for now, it's all locked down here at MVH. I want to let you guys forget about this for the next month or so, so that you will be surprised when he hits.

Can you give me a brief descriptions of the custom Mutant Head you did?
This one came out great! As I started it was definitely one of those paint apps that I knew was gonna look amazing when it's finished. I usually know what colors I will be using but keep little details to change as I go for fun. Usually, when I plan it out too much, I tend to over think it and ruin the fun.
There really is no inspiration behind the visual wise, but when I was painting him I was also painting the mutant evil I did for Ryan which was a bit darker in design. So I think he is so bright as he is the Yang to Ryans Yin. It came out great...!

To Rich: Thank you so much for taking the time for this interview and an amazing job on the Mutant Head!

"Cupcake" Mutant Head

Mori Katsura of Real x Head has kindly painted a very few limited glow in the dark Mutant Head figures to help celebrate a new toy store opening for Scott ( a.k.a. Stealthtank ).

"The Cupcake Mutant Head was to be a regular release on white vinyl sometimes last year, but it had paint quality issues after coming back from the painter, so the release was axed. After pestering Mori at Real x Head for awhile, he agreed to try the challenging the paint scheme again on a few glow in the dark figures to help commemorate the opening of Scott's new store." quote from Scott.

As for Scott's new toy store, he is still finalizing some of the details like names and overall concept. It will be opening in mid to late August in sunny Saint Petersburg, Florida. The online store will be up at launch.

Thanks to Scott for putting this together. Look forward to the opening of the new store.

Milky Mutant Chaos | May 2009

It had never occurred to me that a figure like the Mutant Chaos would attract my attention. It is not like the typical figures that I like. Just like its name, it's look is definitely very "Chaotic". It's paint application is very special. The depth and layers created by the paint and the rub finish is outstanding.

Blue Fade Mutant Head & Mutant Evil | Part II

Blue Fade Mutant Head & Mutant Evil | Part I

After a really long wait, my highly anticipated set of Blue Fade Mutant Head and Mutant Evil figures have finally arrived. The original release date was May 5th, 2009 @ I was among the few very fortunate ones to have snatched this amazing pair. The light turquoise blue paint gradually fades into its clear hands and feet. The figures are simply breathtaking. The pictures were a bit tricky to take. I wanted to capture the transparency of the vinyl yet still capture the true color.

Mutant Head by Real x Head | リアルヘッド - Part I

About a year and a half ago, I came across this figure by accident at the Super7 store. Since then, I've been a fan and follower. I don't have a very big collection like some of you out there and many of my Real x Head are from recent releases. Thanks to the SkullBrainers out there, I've been able to find pieces that were released years ago. What amazes me about these figures is that each of them is actually the same but vastly different because of the paint applications. I'm a Art Director by profession and deal with design on a daily basis. I work on creating layouts for catalogs and other print medias. I wish that I have the knowhow of designing with hand painting but I don't think it will be a possibility for me. These are parts of my Mutant Head collection. I will be taking and posting more pictures in the days to come.
