Doc Von Block Wooden Figure

Tenacious Toys released images of Stolleart Studio's X-Ray version of Doc Von Block created by Scott Tolleson and he looks awesome. 

"Born and raised as the only child of successful circus performers,  Bobby Von Block was a lonely, misunderstood child who was often teased by the other children for being too square. He spent much of his time studying physics, carpentry and mind reading. His best and only friend throughout childhood was  his homemade assistant, Ivan the Beaker. After high school Bobby dropped out of  college because he found it too difficult trying to obtain a PhD in Happy  Sciences. Instead, he decided to focus on earning a Master of Madness in Evil  Sciences. Von Block now lives deep in the forest of Transylgrainia where he  spends his days concocting formulas to destroy butterflies, unicorns, bunny  rabbits and all other cheerful creatures."

Doc Von Block stands at 5" tall, each accompanied by an Ivan the Beaker accessory. These toys are made of 100% high grade wood and packaged in keepsake wood boxes, how awesome is that. Each Doc is unique due to the staining on the wood grain and is limited to only 150 pieces for only $55 at the Tenacious Toys online store HERE so be quick.
