Davemarkart's Megamind Android Is Here To Take Over...

by
This new custom Megamind Android from DAVEMARKART is so cute! Ranging from the bulbous eyes to the spiked collar the attention to detail on this custom is crazy good. I especially love the addition of the cape and belt. You can just tell by Megamind's expression that he is just hatching a masterful plan inside that giant head. Can I just say I am disappointed that DAVEMARKART did not make every character from this movie? I would love to see all of his interpretations on every single character especially Metro Man! Hint... Hint... if you are interested in seeing some customs from DAVEMARKART that are available for purchase like the one below please click HERE.

Focus Blue Diamond Ninja, Focus by Tony Gil

by
You gotta watch Tony Gil. His customs are sick. There's definitely something to be said for a customizer who comes up with simple, bold concepts that are executed well. This piece works for me even though there's a limited color palette... expert resculpting of this 4-inch Munny figure's arms and legs and a simple paint job make this one pretty damn cool in my book. Tony Gil made "Focus Blue Diamond Ninja, Focus" in multiples (5 pieces) and I think at least one is left here in his shop
This piece was one of Tony's entries into the Munnyworld contest, and of course, it was inspired by The Karate Kid.

Pulling A Bunny Out Of My Hat...

by
There are not a lot of words that I can use to describe this piece from David Kraig who customized a 4" Munny and 3" Dunny into a Magician and Rabbit. I will give it a try though. Amazing, beautiful, cute, wow, fantastic, awesome, pretty, sweet, lovable, imaginative, dashing, magical, daring, inventive, captivating, fascinating, dazzling, delightful, bewitching, alluring, charming, hypnotizing, intriguing, mesmerize, spellbinding, conjuring, enchanting, magnetic, mysterious, otherworldly, entrancing, wizardly and wonderful. He submitted this for the CTU trade and whoever gets this piece is very, very lucky!

                                                       

DCAY's Venus Flytrap Is Here To Suck You In...

by
"It's A Trap" is a venus flytrap that has developed the taste for the vinyl goodness of Dunny's. This custom Munny and Dunny set was made by the amazing artist DCAY. A custom made flocked base along with all the sculpey vine details make this custom take on a life of it's own. I do not even feel sorry for the Dunny as it's about be eaten as it would just be fascinating to watch. I cannot wait to see what he comes up with next.

Outhouse T-Shirt by Kyle Thye available at Paste

by
The OMFG! Kickstarter to fund a run of cool little artist-designed mini figures reached full funding in August 2011. This is old news. I backed it, I got my figures, I got exposed to a bunch of talented new artists as well as Kickstarter as a viable funding platform. Great stuff.

Many of the artists involved used the added recognition to help launch new products and designs based on their contributions to the OMFG! series. One such artist is Kyle Thye, whose "Phantom Shithouse" figure made it into the series. (Now, OK, we commonly call it the Phantom Outhouse to be nice-nice on teh internetz, but it will always be the Shithouse to me.) You can purchase the Outhouse t-shirt, designed by Kyle Thye, from Paste Apparel here. Sweet shirt for $25.

Argonaut Resins has released shots of Series 3 of their Pharaoh Hound resin figures. This series will drop on Wednesday, June 6th at noon EST in their online store.

Adding to the excitement this series are the matching regular (6.5-inch) Tuttz cats (pictured below) which will be released alongside Pharaoh Hound Series 3.

Smokey custom Munny by Ian Ziobrowski

by
 "Smokey's Pleasant Day" is one of Ian Ziobrowski's most recent customs completed for a group show. This one was for the Most Wanted: Behind the Hype show at 1AM Gallery in San Francisco.

Adding to the fine collection of NUGGLIFE I introduce "Smokey" the biggest hippy in town. This guy is always wondering around searching for the finest crop in town. Unfortunately his paranoia dominates his cool ninety percent of the time, thinking the whole world is watching him. SO pretty much..... he's useless.

Sick details on this piece, as always. Ian manages to tell an entire story in one custom toy. Amazing. I wonder if Smokey is friends with Nuggs? Seems like Nuggs' business-oriented mind, and busy daily schedule, might harsh Smokey's mellow...
