NEW POST: Andrew Byham just completed a new addition to the Wartoise family… #6 is based on Mk1 Iron Man, and includes a glowing “heart” underneath a magnetically mounted canon on top of his shell. “Irontoise is injured by a booby trap and captured by the enemy, who then orders him to design weapons. His injuries are dire and shrapnel is moving towards his heart. His fellow prisoner constructs a power cell to keep the shrapnel from reaching Irontoise’s heart, keeping him alive. In secret they use the workshop to design and construct a crudely welded carapace constructed from iron plates, with a magnetically attached gun turret hiding the glowing power cell.” This cool looking resin figure also includes polymer clay, Warhammer 40k weaponry, and LED glowing power cell, painted to a gunmetal finish in acrylic. It’s up for grabs HERE now… go give him a new home! http://dlvr.it/55TC81

NEW POST: Mr. Krotpong's stunning “Killer Krampus” figure have been hand-painted in the above pictured red, green, and glow-in-the-dark colorways, made especially for the previously announced “Total Atomic Meltdown” at The Clutter Gallery. These work-in-progress pictures don’t show the “Mischief Maker” child companion/kidnap victim or the traditional chain on the 9-inch tall Krampus, but we’re guaranteed they’ll be included with the finished pieces. And, from what Mr. Krotpong is saying, these will be the final times he offers out these figures on either a red or glow-in-the-dark vinyl base. Whoa! Those who need to have one of these pieces should join the Clutter Gallery Preview List for first dibs on exhibition works!
"Total Atomic Meltdown," a group art toy exhibition of neo-kaiju and other strange creations, will open on Saturday, March 8th with a reception from 6-9PM local time and be on display April 4th, 2014 at The Clutter Gallery, 163 Main St., Beacon, NY 12508.

NEW POST: Canada’s Vinyl Fantasy collective has partnered with Metropolis Comics & Toys to bring together Designer Toy fans as well as introduce new folks to the art style, a task they’re hoping the upcoming 3rd annual Vinyl Fantasy Exhibition — ”We’re Not Dun Yeti" — will succeed in doing. Pictured above is Tasha Zimich's stunningly hand-painted 4-inch tall Foomi figure, named “Abominubble,” which will be one of the pieces on display at the event. And, if you're in the Vancouver and Lower Mainland area, you absolutely should swing on by… there will be 20% off all vinyl toy purchases in-store, a variety of prizes given away, and drinks & refreshments to keep you going!
The 3rd annual Vinyl Fantasy Exhibition, “We’re Not Dun Yeti,” will take place of Saturday, March 8th, 2014 from 2PM local time onward at Metropolis Comics & Toys, 4735 Kingsway, Burnaby, BC V5H 4J2, Canada.

NEW POST: David “HealeyMade" Healey own line of 3¾-inch tall action figures — which he’s called the 3.75 Series — has its newest addition in the form of the above pictured "Magusaean," which is an old English word for Magi, indicating either a magician, a wise man, or both. Packaged in a resealable blister, this piece comes with a two-sided reversible backing card… the proper ‘backside’ of which is actually pictured below! Limited to an edition of roughly 25 pieces, these hand-cast and -painted figures will be available today (Friday, March 7th, 2014) at 12 NOON Pacific time in HealeyMade’s online shop.
NEW POST: Nonegious has shared the above pictured “Soldier of the Psychic Wars” custom 4-inch tall @kidrobot ‘Bot with us. Inspired by the design upon the Keith Haring (RED) version of the Mascot figure, Nonegious’s rendition seems like a mixture of Iron Man’s armor and Tron’s aesthetic. An overall solidly done piece, Nonegious does need to work on his masking — for more consistent line weights and to prevent the feathering of touching areas — but I would have liked to see some more diversity to the paint application… even making those solid swaths two toned would’ve given the illusion of a metal’s patina and shine, which I suspect he was going for. For those art patrons looking to support an up-and-comer, feel free to head over to Nonegious’s online store and help the next generation, especially when a piece like this is a reasonable $50. http://dlvr.it/55LBtN
