Magnus & Friday The Metamorphosis Edition

Here’s a first look at Joe Ledbetter’s upcoming Magnus and Friday Gradient collector’s set! Drawn from the story told in Joe’s recent solo show, this low-run (198 pcs) edition features smooth gradient blends for some serious eye candy.  Rarely seen on production figures, this paint technique sets the new  release apart.  As with the original set, the Gradient edition features both 3” figures –- Mangus (with hobo sack) and his true love Friday-- each with 3-points of articulation and comes in a window gift box.  Ten lucky collectors who find special tickets randomly inserted across both the Original and Gradient edition boxes will be able to redeem them for a special silk screened limited edition print (ed. of 10).
The Mangus and Friday Gradient Collector’s set will be  available on Friday, June 25th @ Noon PDT  for $70 exclusively from  The figures will arrive in late June, early July.

Joe Ledbetter x The Loyal Subjects -- Magnus and Friday

Joe Ledbetter and The Loyal Subjects present: The Magnus and Friday collectors set!
The set will be avaliable on Tuesday, June 8th as a companion to Joe Ledbetter's Magnus Maximus solo show which opens this Friday at the Corey Helford gallery.

The set of two griffins is drawn directly from the show’s narrative which finds Magnus on a journey of discovery both of his true self (Magnus Maximus) and his true love, Friday.  As seen in the paintings, Magnus carries a hobo sack – a symbol of his travels. 

The Magnus and Friday collector set features both the  Magnus Maximus and Friday 3” griffin figures with 100+ paint ops including Joe’s trademark black outline and some articulation.  As a cool bonus, ten of the sets will include a randomly-inserted chase ticket redeemable for an exclusive silk-screened print (edition of ten). Limited to 399 pieces, the Magnus and Friday collector set will be available for pre-order on Tuesday, June 8th @ Noon PDT for $60 per set from and select retailers.
