"When Nature Calls" by ServeEm

ServeEm aka “C.A.N.1”, tried his hand at the tribal characters from Ace Ventura 2, “When nature calls”. The little terror in the handmade basket is Tommy Davidson’s character that Ace Ventura does battle with. Each accessory is handmade from clay epoxy and painted with acrylics. These characters were made for the latest CTU trade. I reckon that Scott Kinnebrew (Forcess of Dorkness) will be very happy with this set!

The Monsterhunter by Valerie G for Toy Invaderz

 Valerie G shares with us this sweet custom set she did for the Toy Invaderz show which is currently running in Chicago, IL.

You can check out Valerie's page on our site, and also be sure to check the page on our site where we'll be selling the pieces from the Toy Invaderz show! We're going to start putting them up for sale soon.

FREE DIY B-Bot with your $50 DIY purchase

So we have some of these Plastic City x Tristan Eaton DIY B-Bots in stock and we wanted to do something fun with them.... at the same time, I am experimenting with Facebook's new Offer feature. I have set up an Offer on Facebook that will allow the next 4 customers placing $50+ orders of DIY toys in our DIY section to claim the free DIY B-Bot. Having no idea how this process actually works, I'm gonna just take a stab at it and instruct any interested customizers to go to our Tenacious Toys Facebook page and find that offer and click on Get Offer. The Offer post should be pinned to the top of the page there. After that, I suppose you follow the instructions in the offer in order to claim the prize.

If you don't use Facebook (the horror!!!), just place your $50 order in our DIY section and I'll throw in the B-Bot when I ship.

DAVEMARKART Want Some of This... Bitch?! custom 8-inch Toyer Qee

Heavy sculpting and bright paint makes this one really eye-catching! Dave is really progressing with his work... each piece is more sculptural and fully-formed than the last.

Dead Hand Toys + Monster Kolor paint = next level art toys

Recently sent a package of Monster Kolor paint to Brian Ahlbeck of Dead Hand Toys... and sure enough, a week or so later we see these images popping up on his Facebook feed! Brian's resin sculpts are already really interesting and fun. He's got a dedicated group of collectors, and I'm a huge fan myself. But this recent addition of the deep, metallic, vibrant Monster Kolor paint in my opinion adds a new dimension of cool to his pieces. Great work. Looks like you'll be able to pick some of these up at the Dragatomi SDCC booth #4935.

Full disclosure: I am now repping Monster Kolor paint on behalf of Apex. That means I will be stocking the paint in our shop soon, and it also means other shops and retailers may order wholesale through me by emailing me at my Apex email address.
