Truly honoured to unveil the packaging art for the official Tura Satana action figure coming soon from Odeon and White Elephant Toyz.
The artwork is by the incredible Joseph Michael Linsner, and he blew us away with it, exceeding our expectations.
The package is truly a labour of love and my favourite bit of layout work ever. The vision was to give Tura a truly vintage package and also add a much-needed female member to a Particular Team of Crime Killers.
As added bonus, we’ve got a special look at the final paint master for the figure, which is now in production.
The official Tura Satana action figure will be available in 2022 at Plaidstallions.com and Whiteelephanttoyz.com websites
