This month the KING KORPSE WOOD will finally be officially released for sale. We received some pre-orders at last year's TTF, the rest of the pieces will be sold via online lottery held at our online store.
KING KORPSE WOOD was originally announced in November last year to commemorate the 5th anniversary of KING KORPSE, and we have been working on this project since 2019.
Created in collaboration with artist JAMES GROMAN, KING KORPSE has received a lot of attention from collectors over the past six years, mainly in the United States and Asia, and was awarded "TOY OF THE YEAR" at the Designer Toy Awards in New York in 2017. In 2017, we received the "TOY OF THE YEAR" award at the Designer Toy Awards held in New York.
I have always had a desire to create wooden works, and choosing KING KORPSE for my first wooden work was a great challenge for INSTINCTOY.
In order to pursue the ultimate wooden work, a lot of effort was put into choosing the types of wood.
Each part is made of different natural wood which is unpainted, so that customers can appreciate the original color and characteristics of the wood.
The body is made of black walnut which is durable and has beautiful color.
The red color of the delicately designed heart (LIQUID HEART) is made of rosewood. The sternum is made of maple which has a silky texture, and the skin is made of cherry wood which has a nice texture and pinkish color.
This work uses the latest CNC machine with 5 spindles, and the chest is cut in a way so that the heart and sternum are divided into parts, perfectly reproducing the original shape of KING KORPSE.
In order to create the details of the work, a special carving blade was made to order.
The handcuffs, waist cuffs, and foot cuffs are made of brass, expressing the world view of KING KORPSE more realistically, giving a sense of volume to the completed work.
The movable parts, similar to a soft vinyl figure, can be expressed in many different poses.
Additionally, we recorded the production process and detailed introduction of KING KORPSE WOOD of our IG LIVE session last year, customers who are interested can view the video here.
The level of difficulty in producing the pieces of this work was higher than we expected. Production was impacted by the pandemic, and the production of this work was finally completed after 3 years.
A huge amount of time has been put into the development and production of this work, to preserve the quality and the value of the work, this edition will be only limited to 20 pieces.
A high quality wooden box with a number plate on the side is specially made to store the work.
In order for INSTINCTOY to manage the production quantity, the foot cuff of the left leg was separately laser engraved in Japan with the serial number.
In addition to the work, a Certificate of Authenticity (COA) comes with the KING KORPSE WOOD, which also serves as an introduction pamphlet of the artists and the work.
We hope that collectors will be pleased with the ingenuity of this work.
