3 Coconut Monkey studios, a small product design studio in Los Angeles, is proud to announce the release of YO! customizable vinyl art figures in conjunction with Stan Lee’s POW Entertainment. YO! and Stan Lee have teamed up to bring comics fans a way to show off and create their own comic book heroes.

As its first vinyl art figure, 3CM studios is excited to declare the official launch of its Customizing Contest featuring YO!, a 7” tall blank vinyl figure.


The contest officially begins May 1st, 2013. YO! enthusiasts can customize and display their work by emailing pictures of finished customs for the all world to see. All entries will be approved, and then posted to several affiliate websites as well as the official YO! Facebook page. Artists will have ample time to customize and photograph their finished pieces. The photographs, once approved, will be posted within 12 hours of being reviewed.

Top 50 will be invited to display their creations in person at the 2013 Comikaze Expo by Stan Lee (comikazeexpo.com). 3CM will narrow the field and contact the top 50 directly. The top 3 finalists will be announced by Stan Lee himself!
