Secret Base, TAG releasing SpongeBob X-Ray DX
by Brian Szabelski

Legendary Japanese toy maker Secret Base has partnered with Nickelodeon to release the latest figure in their X-Ray series, SpongeBob X-Ray DX. Yes, my favorite animated fry cook is being made into a 5-inch soft vinyl figure with a full skeleton (Editor's note: Yes, he is a sponge. But it's a cartoon, too.). Half of the figure is clear and the other half painted to look like SpongeBob, and each figure comes with one of five exclusive T-shirts (two Secret Base versions and three Secret Base x DOARAT versions).

Toy Art Gallery is the official and exclusive U.S. distributor of SpongeBob X-Ray DX, who goes on sale Friday at noon Pacific (3 p.m. Eastern) for US$185 both in-store and online. Seems like a lot, yes, but this a limited edition release and those never come cheap. In fact, I think this is somewhat appropriate.
