Growing up in Spanish Harlem (El Barrio - uptown on the East side of Manhattan) on those hot summers one of my favorite things was getting a Puerto Rican shaved ice treat called a Piragua. They were like Spanish icies that were sold off a makeshift Mom and Pop cart with a huge block of ice and all sorts of awesome syrupy sweet flavors like cherry, grape, lime, strawberry, orange, etc.
The all new resin Piragua figurine is five inches in height (sculpted, molded and cast up by artist Eric Nocella Diaz) and will come in sorts of crazy fun cool colors/flavors with the occasional chase figure thrown in. They will make their debut at the New York Comic Con this October 8th - 11th at booth #402 in The Block. Information on edition sizes and pricing will be made available soon and all the amazing photos are by photographer Deborah Montanez.
