A group by the name of Deep Fried Figures has made a new line of PVC figures called Mechawhales. As you might imagine, it features giant whales in equally large mecha suits. They are about 3.5 inches tall and 5.5 inches wide featuring articulated shoulders, wrists, and tail (fluke). They are rather pricey at $45 a piece, but if that video above (and the one after the jump) doesn’t sell you on them, I’m not sure what will. You have to give credence to the creativity and ridiculous concept of this project.
Join us after the jump for more pictures, video and the press release!
