Siamese Cherries Archive

We’ve posted about Lou Pimentel’s lovely Siamese Cherries design a few times before, and now it’s time for the fourth colorway: the Lovesick Edition! This colorway is cast in clear red resin with a pill suspended within–to cure your Valentine’s Day Hangover! This will go up for sale in Lou’s online store tomorrow the 21st at 3PM PST, along with a second batch of the Iced Cherries. The Lovesick edition is limited to 12 pieces and will retail for $40, while the Iced Cherry is $30. I have the icy colorway and it is absolutely stunning–if you missed the first wave definitely consider picking one of these up!

We’ve seen two colorways of Lou Pimentel’s lovely Siamese Cherries resin piece, but this third, unpigmented resin “Iced Cherry” is my favorite of the bunch so far. There are only 5 of these beauties, and at $30 a pop it’s no surprise that 4 (yes 4!) are already gone, so act fast and grab one here if you are interested!
[UPDATE] The Iced Cherries have sold out! Congrats to Lou for another lighting-fast sellout. If you still absolutely need a Cherry in your life, the red edition is an open run and available here.

A few months ago we showed you Lou Pimentel‘s new Siamese Cherries that he is producing in resin and now we have word of the second colorway, a black cherry! Set to be released on Black Friday, the black cherry features extra detailing on his face in a black and grey colorway. The black cherries are quite limited at 12 pieces and will be available starting this Friday, November 25th (Black Friday for those not in the know) for $65 with $7 shipping within the U.S. and $10 for international shipping and will be online at Lou’s webstore.
Also, now available are the original red cherries, which are an open run and are going for $50 with the same shipping prices. For those wondering about the delay in the production, these have also been re-designed from the ground up via 3D sculpting by Chris Raab so as to make the stems of the cherries much more secure. Don’t fret though as each piece is still produced via hand by Lou himself and painted with oil pants by him as well for a great affordable piece of art. Are any of you readers camping out at your keyboards for 12 PM EST this Friday to get your hands on one of these? I know I will be!

I’ll always remember the first “big deal” figure that I ever purchased. Up until August of 2009, I had bought only small blind-boxed figures and a few larger vinyl pieces that were from pretty large runs. Then I saw a picture of Lou Pimentel‘s Cranston Fellows Jr. online, and it was love at first sight. Cranston marked my descent into serious collecting, and as such he’ll always have a very special place in my collection.
Lou has put out several colorways of Cranston, but other than that he has yet to put out any other figures. Finally, two years later, Lou has a new design for us! He’s been teasing his Siamese Cherries for a few days on Twitter, and you can see the in-progress shots in the gallery. But now we get to see the painted version in all its glory! These 3″ resin figures are hand-made by Lou, from the mixing of the resin to the gorgeous oil paints. They will cost $50 a pop, and it seems like there will be several colorways, with the original red colorway being an open run. Release information should be available soon via Lou himself!
Update: Lou has now opened a list for purchasing these on his blog, so head on over and sign up!
