Sam Griffiths of Planet Domu and RunDMB will release their joint project War Tourist at ToyCon UK! The pure white resin figure stands 4" tall and comes with two different removable heads and is packaged in its own bespoke black cube box. The box has a white canvas band printed with the War Tourist backstory and individual number. There is an artist series available with the custom War Tourists boxed in the same packaging with the artists logo printed on the white canvas band. Both Planet Domu and RunDMB feel the packaging was an important part of the design process and that it is just as important as the piece itself. 

To celebrate the launch of the new figure, Planet Domu & RunDMB held a competion to see who trys their hand at customizing one of two huge two foot tall fiberglass War Tourists. Cast by Planet Domu one giant War Tourist was given to Jon Paul Kaiser to customize and the other to the winner of the competion Lisa Rae Hansen. Both of the giant War Tourists will be on display at Planet Domu's ToyCon UK booth. The list of artists participating in the 4" War Tourist custom Artist Series is pretty amazing as it features the talents of Jon-Paul Kaiser, Mister Lister, A Little Stranger, Stu Witter, RunDMB, Map-Map, Uncle Absinthe, Pete Fowler, Mimic and Mister Gauky! All of the War Tourists will be for sale at the Planet Domu ToyCon UK booth will all remaining figures going in Planet Domu's webshop after ToyCon.
