Honey… I blew up my “CheTrooper” bust! Massive 18” resin bust in the works from UrbanMedium!!!

NEW POST: Derek over at UrbanMedium just sent over some awesome news… he just approved the clay for an impressively large 18” - soon to be resin - “CheTrooper” bust… and holy crap is that stellar looking! Previously released (posted HERE) as a 7.5” tall bust, this classic figure from UM will look great as a much large bust, and will fit in perfectly with other larger busts that have been released from other artists in the designer toy art scene! Derek mentions that he will be dropping them in ATL and NYC this fall… and more details will be releasing soon, so keep those eyes peeled! http://dlvr.it/6m2m6m

Coolrain Studio’s “Break Time, Pithetrooper” for the Vans × Star Wars Collection launch!

NEW POST: When Korean toy artist Coolrain Lee of the Coolrain Studio was approached to create something special for the Vans × Star Wars release party in June, not only did he knock out some amazing 1/6th scale figures (12-inches tall when standing) but he created something uniquely his own. Not satisfied to simply reproduce the classic Star Wars characters, he incorporated elements of them — mainly the helmets from Stormtroopers, Darth Vader, and Boba Fett — into his notable “Break Time” aesthetic. We sadly do not know if any of these pieces will be available for sale, but we can keep our fingers crossed… http://dlvr.it/6bvDVR

The Super Sucklord opens The Suckhole Sweatshop “Storefront” with lots of unique pieces!

NEW POST: If you’re a fan of The Super Sucklord then you’ve surely noticed him doing a lot of unique pieces lately, typically taking a classic toy (sometimes a kit-bash of toys) and blister packing it onto a humorously associated backing board made from some vintage magazine ad that has been mounted on plywood. These fantastic creations have seemed tough to come by until now, when Sucklord has opened his The Suckhole Sweatshop “Storefront” which is filled with these memorable signed and paint splattered works of art. Happy shopping! http://dlvr.it/6RBW8x

@wearetado × @togetherplus Industries × Hot Toys’s “Star Wars Chubbies, Series 1”… Packaged & Ready?!?

NEW POST: You might recall the previously announced “Star Wars Chubbies, Series 1” line… Designed by TADO, these officially licensed Star Wars figures are being produced by @togetherplus Industries and Hot Toys. With a bit of matryoshka (or nesting) doll feel, due to the varying sizes, it appears that the above packaging design is approved and the pieces will be “shipping later this year.” We can’t wait to see these kinda chibi versions in-person! http://dlvr.it/638tS8

Wetworks’s “when I grow up” reveals that, in the Star Wars universe, kids dress up as tie fighter pilots!

NEW POST: A completely custom creation from the artist Wetworks, formerly known as wwwetworks, shows that — in the Star Wars universe — a kid might want to grow up just like his dad, becoming a tie fighter pilot. This commission piece, perfectly timed for Father’s Day, is titled “when I grow up” and it depicts “a young son of a tie fighter pilot that dreams to be a real pilot someday, but for now he borrows his Dad’s gear and a custom made tie fighter box to roam his galaxy.” Per usual, Wetworks’s skills and construction are perfection! While this fantastic piece is already spoken for, you can always contact the artist about a commission of your own! http://dlvr.it/5x9FDK

Star Wars Fans Rejoice: @umetoys’s “Jeremy” sure looks like a Jawa to me!

NEW POST: Rich “@umetoys" Page recently revisited one of his previously sculpted figures, Jeremy, and redesigned him to be in-line with the "GeekWok" release… Pictured above is the header card line drawing of "Jeremy" while below is the new sculpt, both of which might make Star Wars fans think of the short Jawas of Tatooine… except, this time, he’s not going to be scavenging for technology, he’ll be after your heart. At this point very little is known about this upcoming release, aside from the fact that "his eyes will be cast in clear yellow resin with a GID powder." Follow Rich Page on Twitter for more up-to-date information on this roughly 3-inch tall resin release.

@wearetado × @togetherplus Industries × Hot Toys’s “Star Wars Chubbies, Series 1” Painted Prototype Chewbacca Set!

NEW POST: The other day, when we revealed the prototypes of the officially licensed “Star Wars Chubbies, Series 1” line, we were sadly missing the fifth and final set’s reveal: the Chewbacca-centric one. Pictured above, we can now see these @wearetado designed pieces that are being produced by @togetherplus Industries and Hot Toys in the near future. On display at this past weekend’s Hong Kong Toy & Game Fair, this set includes not only Chewbacca but also Han Solo and Greedo! Needless to say, we can’t wait for this series to come out! http://dlvr.it/4fvT0q

@wearetado × @togetherplus Industries × Hot Toys’s “Star Wars Chubbies, Series 1” Painted Prototype Figures!

NEW POST: After almost a year of silence on the matter, the previously announced & officially licensed “Star Wars Chubbies, Series 1” line was spotted on display at this past weekend’s Hong Kong Toy & Game Fair. Designed by @wearetado, these adorable pieces are being produced by @togetherplus Industries and Hot Toys in a series of sets, each comprised of three figures of differing sizes. These are merely painted prototypes and still a work in progress, but we were able to locate detail shots of four of the five sets, missing the Chewbacca-centric one sadly…
Above left is the C-3PO set, which has the large protocol droid figure accompanied by his nearly constant companion, the astromech droid R2D2, as well as a scavenging Jawa, notable for initially selling the pair of droids to Luke’s family at the beginning of A New Hope. Above right we find a trio of Jedi in the Yoda set, the revered staff-wielding master paired with Mace Windu and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Above left is the bounty hunter set, featuring fan favorite Boba Fett as well as Bossk and Zuckuss. And finally, above right, we have the Jabba the Hutt set, which packs the crime lord’s majordomo, Bib Fortuna, and court jester, Salacious B. Crumb, with him. http://dlvr.it/4f71Kx
