The Micheal Lau (sometimes known as Crazy Smiles) Garden(palm)er collection continues. You may remember last installment from this past Spring, created in conjunction with How2Work toys. The third Garden(Palm)er Series finally shipped in late December after having preorders booked back since Summer. Each 10-piece set of 1/12th-scaled articulated figures went for $650, the toy figurines standing at about 18cm and having 16 articulated joints. Good news is that wait was made worthwhile, because a secret “bonus” figure got added to the batch. Meet RESPA — a little guy rocking a helmet, vintage Hawaiian shirt and Eastpak knapsack, with all the meticulous detailing you’d expect from a Lau piece. If you’re trying to get a set, or Respa specifically, contact Falcon’s Hangar — or scour eBay for help.
