Ian Ziobrowski's George Nuggington custom for Spaghetti Project

Ian Ziobrowski of Genuine Artikle sends us these images of his incredibly well-executed custom 8" Mon Qee "George Nuggington" which he recently sent down to Fredericksburg, VA to be a part of Spaghetti Project's "The Civil War and our Founding Fathers" show. 
20% of the sales from that custom Qee show will be donated to a charity called Our Military Kids.
If you've ever watched Dazed and Confused, you know as well as I that our Founding Fathers grew a lot of hemp back in the day, since the plant had many varied uses. Ian's character "Nuggs" views George Nuggington as somewhat of a hero, not only because he helped found our beautiful country but because they share a love of the mary jane. 
Price for this custom is $325 and it's well worth it considering the immaculate sculpting and painting that Ian did. Diggin the period-correct clothing and hair, and the real wood and twine basket he's holding! 
Contact Spaghetti Project if you're interested in purchasing it, and DEFINITELY be on the lookout for Ian's new Nugg Life website which is under construction.
And also be on the lookout for Ian's custom Marshalls which will be a part of our Marshall Custom Blind Box series, dropping after SDCC!

Tenacious Toys Marshall Blind Box Custom Series

We are proud to announce a little project that we've been working on for many months now: a blind-box custom series based on the Marshall platform. The Marshall figures were originally designed by 64Colors and produced by Rotofugi, so full respect and props to them for making this excellent sculpt.
We reached out to a few of our close friends for our first custom series, and while we are still in the late stages of getting everything ready, we are aiming to launch the series soon after SDCC ends. The price for each custom will be $50 even. I have to say that I am extremely impressed with the quality of the customs that we've gotten back. Most DEFINITELY worth quite a bit more than the $50 price we decided upon when we were planning this project, but we wanted to keep these customs accessible to the vast majority of collectors, so $50 it is.
For now all we're showing you is the graphic which will be applied to outside of the boxes, but rest assured: teasers will follow in the upcoming weeks! If you keep your eyes peeled on the blogs and pages of the following artists, you may just catch a glimpse of some of their custom Marshalls!
