SNEAK PEEK: Matt Anderson 16-inch Chocolate Qeester Bunee

by
So it took me a few months but I finally acquired the 16" Bunee Qees Matt Anderson wanted to buy (sorry Matt!). Naturally I was expecting him to turn one into an electronic barbarian Bunee that lights up and rotates wildly and throws things at people. 

But Matt loves to keep people on their toes, so he decided to turn the first 16" Bunee into a giant chocolate Easter Bunny, err... Chocolate Qeester Bunee
Satiny milk chocolate finish, creepy evil stare. Yup, it's awesome!  I feel like this little guy is a little pissed off that someone was nibbling on his ear. Can't wait to see this one in person.

FYI in October Matt Anderson will be signing at our NYCC booth alongside Rsin. A signing you won't wanna miss... The Cultyard is where it's at! For us art toys freaks, that is.

SouthernDrawl JAWS vs PAW custom

by
Talented and humble customizer SouthernDrawl shares with us this ridiculous custom based on the Coarse Toys PAW figure, easily one of my favorite sculpts! SD does it up right, with weathering, rivets and detailed sculpting which makes other customizers drool... and that's the highest compliment possible! Here's what SD had to say about this piece:

This piece was a commission. I love the dynamic movement of the PAW figure but I was never really sold on the bunny head so I did the only thing a customizer could do, i decapitated it. And it sat headless for a while until I realized that I could reuse the head. and who better to kill a bunny than an apex predator? And so I bulked up the figure even further to accentuate the leg and back musculature. and I added joints- elbow joints, wrist joint, etc. I tried to continue the flow of the figure by adding a curved tail which also helps as a counterweight to the head. With regard to my painting technique, the short answer is sponge painting (I"m giving away the my secret jutsu there LOL). My favorite thing about this piece is that it's inspiring me to do more original sculpting even if it's still customizing on a platform.

More NEMO Haremongous vinyl figures now available

by
The beautiful 8-inch vinyl Haremongous sculpt by my friend Mike "NEMO" Mendez is now available to retailers in a few more colorways! Haremongous is another kick-ass ToyQube product. The above colorway is limited to 300 pieces and retails for $45. The black-on-black colorway below was a ToyQube exclusive up until now, and they only made 200 of those. Also $45. 

From sculptor Mike "Nemo" Mendez comes this warrior rabbit, the Haremungous! Wearing a battle ready helmet and an armored arm brace, he is ready to take on any threat that approaches. The Haremungous has a black skull tattoo on its chest to warn any attackers of their impending doom.
Please email us if you're interested in either of the above. If you buy from us, I can personally hand your Haremongous to NEMO to have him sign it for you before I ship, no extra cost.
Because we're friends with NEMO, we actually have a few other cool, rare Harmongous figures in stock: this one-of-a-kind AP of a factory-painted colorway that was never produced, and this Easter-themed custom, hand-painted by NEMO.

SNEAK PEEK: Glyos x Tuttz "Bad Luck Squadron"

by
When Rob "Smack" Losito introduced END from Argonaut Resins to Matt, the creator of the Glyos line of DIY action figures, shit got real. Here's the dirt straight from END's mouth:

...as promised here are some teaser images of the secret project I'm collaborating with Onell Designs' Matt Doughty, creator of the famous Glyos. Rob Losito introduced me to Matt at the New York Comic Con last year and suggested we work together since I was a big fan of the Glyos figures. What we came up with is the Bad Luck Squadron! A fighting squad of Mini Tuttz action figures. This project was going to be a lot of work so we brought in artist Victor Durango to help with designing the bodies, accessories and all the paint work for the entire line, and the One Cam and  When Giants Meet to do the project photography. We will be releasing more images and pricing of the first wave in the near future on the Glyos site....and you know me - there will be lots of surprises in store!

Rampage Toys Ugly Unicorn yellow & red preorders up tomorrow

by
Rampage Toys Ugly Unicorn Japanese soft vinyl figure pre-sale goes live on Tuesday 8/16 @ 8pm EST (5pm West Coast or Wednesday 8/17 @ 9am Japan Time) in the SHOP.

A little more back-story:  The UGLY UNICORN (アグリー ユニコーン ) is a mysterious creature believed to come from a planet where cake and frosting are the main source of sustenance.  Via some seemingly random circumstances (a wormhole perhaps?) he has come to earth and now seeks the only thing that can keep him alive - CAKE!  Due to his absurdly ridiculous size (measured by scientists to be somewhere around 75' - depending on his food intake at time of measurement), UGLY tends to make a mess of his search for food; destroying things and leaving rubble in his wake. 







Each figure is made in Japan, measures slightly over 5 inches in height and will come bagged and header carded.  "I'm releasing the first two colors (unpainted) at the same time.  Red and Yellow!  The color swatches in the attached pics should match the Pantone requests I put in.  I have been told to expect the casts by the end of August.  15 of each blank color-way.  Painted one-offs and small runs will starting being available at SUPERFESTIVAL in Tokyo on September 25th!"
