AM stopped by yesterday at GR2 for the signing and release of David Choe’s “Choegal” toy. Many fans braved the cold weather and some lined up for over an hour to get their figure as well the poster of the current Giant Robot magazine cover signed.Â More photos after the jump.
The long awaited wooden Choegal figure from David Choe has been released. Limited to 1000 pieces and priced modestly at $45, it features mechanical parts, three facial expressions (happy, sad, angry), and comes with a mini comic book.

For those interested, there is a release party at Giant Robot 2 on December 23 (6-8pm) with Choe present […]

There were two colorways – gold and black (edition of 500) and a Munky King exclusive translucent-smoke colorway (edition of 150) – both seen below. There was also a raffle (one ticket per purchase) for an original painting and other prizes!Â Also for sale were various prints and custom koibitos… More after the jump.

This will be a nice companion piece for the Kaws Vader figure and will not be released anywhere else. Instinctoy has published full turnarounds (seen below) of all the details. Head over there for more photos. More photos of the release after the jump.
