We are very excited to announce the release of a brand new Cometdebris figure, Sametan (pronounced saw-meh-tahn). Sametan was designed by Koji Harmon, and sculpted by the talented Kiyoka Ikeda. Sametan stands about 11.5cm tall, and willl be made in Japan of high quality soft vinyl.
With reconnected fins, shoes, jeans, and a fancy spade belt buckle, Sametan is here to help spread the word about the plight of sharks worldwide. Did you know sharks are being overfished in many parts of the world, and many shark populations have declined by as much as 90%? Our oceans are dying, and when they die, so do we.
Every Sametan release will benefit PangeaSeed, a grassroots organization based in Tokyo, Japan dedicated to educating and raising international awareness on the plight of sharks and the destruction of their habitat. PangeaSeed is the first organization in Japan to raise public awareness regarding shark conservation and preservation.
Sametan will debut in San Francisco at PangeaSeed’s inaugural transcontinental art exhibition, Sink or Swim, featuring original works from 30 internationally renowned artists. The debut release is cast in beautiful crystal clear blue vinyl, unpainted, and is limited to 25 pieces. For those unable to attend the event, we will also have a limited number available on the Cometdebris website, on sale September 24th at 11:00AM Japan Time (September 23rd at 7:00PM California Time). Price is $40.
