I am pretty sure almost everyone, if not everyone, is familiar with one of the most celebrated children’s show of all time – Sesame Street. Big Bird, Cookie Monster, Elmo, Grover, Ernie and Bert — these characters, one way or another,  have been part of our childhood. Well it seems that Jason Freeny, a famous vinyl figure artist, is also pretty familiar with the show as his latest work is an anatomical toy sculpture of Elmo! Elmo is the first character from Sesame Street to be made into a vinyl figure by toy company Mighty Jaxx under their XXRAY line. Elmo is listed as an XXRAY Plus figure, and compared to regular XXRAY figures, XXRAY Plus figures stand at a height of 8 inches to 10 inches, with more intricate details on the anatomy. XXRAY figures are notable because half of every figure is dissected, showing its anatomy.

Jason Freeny, XXRAY Plus Elmo’s artist, is famous for anatomical toy sculptures based on famous Pop icons. His early success came from his fictional anatomical character schematics and illustrations, as well as from his anatomical toy sculptures. Different mass produced figures and collectibles take inspiration from Freeny’s works. It is also good to note that Jason Freeny is coming this August here in Manila for Asia Pop Comic Con.



XXRAY Plus Elmo is 8.5 inches tall. The figure is now up on the Mighty Jaxx website (www.mightyjaxx.rocks), and is priced at 80 USD. The product ships in the 4th quarter of 2017.
