Anesthesia Vinyl Bust Launch

Anesthesia Veiled robotic lady Bust. Vinyl art collectible by Doktor A and 3D Retro. Sculpted by Bruce Whistlecraft. White Borley edition.

I am very pleased to announce the launch of my latest vinyl Art Collectible.

The classically styled bust of Anesthesia was inspired by the incredible marble work of Raffaele Monti (1818–1881).

I sculpted the original piece in 2014 as a high end art sculpture. Now 3D Retro have transformed her into a stylish and affordable addition to your home decor.

I am very proud of Anesthesia as she is the first vinyl production piece of mine that I have sculpted myself. 3D Retro have done an amazing job in retaining all the tiny details of the original. The precision of the mechanical garland around her head is reproduced spectacularly. And the gossamer nature of her veil is just as effective in vinyl as in the original.

Anesthesia has be coerced into a disagreeable arrangement.
Her father is a dealer in dreams.
Thus he must procure stock. To this end he employs the services of one Hugo Crane, a person with a unique ability to extract dream essence from unsuspecting victims.
But sometimes a specific target is required, the dreams of a certain person requested for a fee by another.
Sometimes that target must be induced to sleep so their nocturnal imaginings may be harvested.
And this is where poor Anesthesia is forced to aid her father’s underhand cooperative.
You see Anesthesia is able to induce slumber with a simple song.

The new figures will be available from my online store on Friday 28th July.

There are three different versions available :


“Mourning” edition. A stylish black and silver design with purple hat and jacket.

The Brass edition. With summery light brown and grey attire.

The Steel edition. In a dapper black topper and coat. Sporting a cool bow tie!

Each comes bagged with a collector card.

Studley Billund had a dream.
A dream of total compatibility between all Mechtorians.
He dreamed of a world where people could help each other by lending a hand, a whole arm. a leg or whatever part
was needed at the time. A world where people could come together to build something greater than themselves by combining their unique abilities and unique parts for the greater good.
But people told him he was just playing.
His ideas were the dreams of a child.

He listened to them…..
Now he makes the most popular toy system in the world.

The figures are also available direct from Crazy Bricks in the USA.
