HIEROMAN: Gold Coin x Hieroglyphics

(Images via Vinyl Pulse.)

Bay Area rap group Hieroglyphics has teamed up with GOLD COIN to produce an original vinyl toy, Hieroman. Here’s an exclusive first look at the sculpts for the upcoming crossover figure. Designed by Ray “Three” Robinson 3, Hieroman rocks the group’s well-known three-eyed logo on the front and a backpack over his shoulders as a nod to the band’s recognition as one of the key players in the so-called ‘backpack’ or indie rap movement. Finally, the rear ‘face’ acknowledges and celebrates Gold Coin’s first vinyl figure. Via Vinyl Pulse .

When I first seen Hieroman, the body reminded me of the Mad*L (Jeremy "MAD" Madl) vinyl, which is one of my favorite vinyl designs. So I immediately liked this vinyl figure. Plus, I'm a Hieroglyphics fan and Gold Coin has sicwidit designs. Can't wait for the drop.
