How-To: The Making of the B5100 by Tesselate

by

The B5100 is a sweet original figure (it's almost more of a playset) by Tesselate. Ever wonder how he makes his amazing and brightly-colored figures? Here's a guide he just published! It takes you from concept, to 3D renderings, to finishing, to silicone mould-making, to pouring resin. The whole shebang, from start to finish. Fascinating!

Seal #4: Death Resin Figure by Menace Inc Studios

by
This is the first full reveal picture for the Death figure by Menace Inc Studios. Made for the 7 Seals Resin Blind Box Series, Death is about 4" tall with his scythe. The figure was cast in resin with an iron coating. Jeff used a special technique to rapidly rust the iron and then seal it to stop the rusting process and fix the look of the piece.

Pictured is the regular version- 1 of 7 made. There is also one chase variant that will be kept a surprise.

Another special one-off version will be part of the big giveaway at midnight. Several of the artists involved in the 7 Seals event will make one-off figures to give away at that magical hour of midnight at the event.

More details can be found at the Facebook event page for the 7 Seals Release Party. The party will take place at the Geeksboro Coffeehouse Cinema in Greensboro, NC.

7 SEALS ARTIST ROSTER:

Alexis Rivera (Playful Gorilla) - Seal #1 The Conqueror / First Horseman
Chris Moore (WeBecomeMonsters) - Seal #2 War / Second Horseman
Cash Cannon - Seal #3 Famine / Third Horseman
Jeff Beck - Seal #4 Death / Fourth Horseman

Bad Apple Rotofugi Exclusive by GOIN x Mighty Jaxx - Preorders Open 12/17!

by

Rotofugi has announced a preorder for an exclusive run of just 50 Bad Apples, the gorgeous graffiti work by French artist GOIN which was turned into an 8" resin figure with the help of Mighty Jaxx of Singapore.

Cast in a sick bright green with a black grenade, it's set to retail for $110. It's important to note here that what you see above is really close to the final product, but still a mockup. The bandanas on the final copies will have a debossed pattern like this:


They go live in the Rotofugi store on Monday, December 17th at 11AM Central Time. The first preorder edition of 300 sold out in just a few days, and my hunch is that this much smaller run will be gone in a flash, so be there!

by

File under: HOW DID I MISS THIS?!

The King Castor O.M.F.G. Artist Proof has been released.  Buy it here for $6 or get an AP with sketch card for $12.  The original flesh color is also available for $3 each.

I have gone on record that this is my favorite Series 1 figure.  I have ordered my AP with sketch (and an extra flesh one because I am weak).


Also, if you haven't pre-ordered your O.M.F.G. Series 2 (in Tenacious Toys White here, complete list here) what are you waiting for?

Custom sculpted and painted Uglydoll vinyl

Toys.  Art.  Monsters.

A deceptively simple tagline that encompasses the lion's share of what you will find under the Small Angry Monster banner.  This newest incarnation of Adam Pratt's creative outlet is already shaping up to be the best yet.

The shop is open here: smallangrymonster.bigcartel.com with a handful of new customs and a ton of stuff in the works which I am currently sworn to secrecy on so...keep an EYE out!

Critters and Treegar Double Drop Tomorrow from BigManToys

by

BigManToys is all set for a double drop of kick ass, yet very affordable, resin on Friday 12/14 at 6PM EST. For just $13 each you can buy one of their Critters-inspired minis or a Treegar Sapling from their online store.

This is wave 3 of the Critters, which you may notice look suspiciously like the deranged alien flesh munchers from a certain wonderful 80's B-movie. They stand just 1.5 inches, but are packed with detail by the exceptionally well-programmed sculpting unit known as Zectron. There are 35 individual pieces in this wave, no two the same, and you can check out a sneak peak of every one in the store right now.


The Treegar Saplings will be available in at least 3 colors, the flesh and neon orange shown here, plus neon pink and a possible mysterious fourth color. You may recognize this guy as well, because a 5.5" inch version was recently cast in resin and that did so well they decided to scale him down for a mini figure release. In my opinion, this one is just right!

Snow Dome Customs by LunaBee

by
Amazing UK artist LunaBee recently released some wonderfully wicked cute holiday themed customs. Made from a mini munny and mini foomi, these custom Snow Domes are only 65 GBP, or roughly $105, which includes worldwide shipping. I love the amount of detail that LunaBee puts in her pieces and these definitely do not disappoint. Many of LunaBee's customs tend to be 1 offs, although LunaBee does produce a themed mini series every now and then. For example, Dragatomi still has one of LunaBee's Skeleton Parade Dunnys left, here. These Snow Dome customs would make a great gift, although, they may not arrive in time if you happen to live outside of the UK. International shipping aside, these customs are awesome.

Custom PAW! and Androids by Fuller

by

James Fuller, of Fuller Designs, has been kind of quiet as of late. However, he always seems to be working on something. Whether it's completing customs pieces for his own mini Series or a custom commissioned wedding topper, Fuller keeps a steady flow of work. I've always been a fan of Fuller's work and his latest commission work is outstanding. I am definitely digging the White Rabbit custom, which uses Coarse's PAW from the False Friends release. From Fuller's description of the piece, it's just half of a set which is going to also include a Mad Hatter, which I imagine is going to be made off of the NOOP figure. I'm looking forward to what else Fuller has in store for the custom toy world.
