Noferin has announced a drop date for the previously teased Natural Wood Pecanpals: May 5th. The 6.5-inch figures are all 100% wood and hand-crafted with articulated joints. They will be limited to an edition of “300 friends.” In addition, Noferin adds:
Pecanpals are made from 100% sustainably harvested wood. They are made from rubber tree wood that would otherwise go to waste. Rubber trees are planted for their rubber, and after about 20 years, their rubber yields start to diminish. We use this beautiful wood, thus saving it from the fire pit.No two Pecanpals look the same. They all have very unique markings due to the wood grain. Some are spotted, some have a marbled look, some are a mixture of the two. We are very pleased with these figures, and hope that you enjoy them too.
As if owning your own Pecanpal wasn’t enough joy, Noferin will reward folks who adopt a full set of figures with a hand-carved, hand-cut, hand-painted and hand-pressed wooden print. If you’re on the fence, remember: the painted pals sold out fast, and I’ve yet to read a single negative word about this series.
