Custom Hellboy Figure by Wetworks

Carlo Cacho, artist behind Wetworks, recently completed a really cool custom painted Hellboy figure, with base. The base is made of wood and clay, while the base figure is a Mezco figure. Wetworks did well to provide a better overall paintjob and with the addition of the base, the completed custom is really nice to look at. No word on whether this was a commissioned piece, or if it will be made available for sale.

For Rsin Art, in between battling ongoing medical problems, Rsin tries to knock down his long commission list. A few of his latest completed creations include a Custom Skullhead, a few 1/12 3AA Bambaboss customs, and a Custom Dragon Boy. The Skullhead and Dragon Boy are commissioned pieces, while the Bambaboss' were a recent store release (Sold out). Some great work by Rsin. As Rsin works through his commission list, it'll be interesting to see what Rsin will produce next. Be sure to follow Rsin on social media to see what he produces next.

V.e.r.a.1 Model from PolyopticsLabs

Brian Anderson, of PolyopticsLabs, has decided to create a limited run of the Vulpues Exploration Rover Alpha 1, or V.e.r.a.1. Since being first released 3 years ago, less than 30 of these handmade models have been created. Featuring more than 30 assembled parts, with working lights and a removable head panel, each V.e.r.a.1 is also hand painted with a military style finish. About the V.e.r.a.1:
The V.e.r.a.1 is designed to excel in dynamic scenarios by rapidly adapting to unknown environments.
Instinctual behavior blended with artificial intelligence, controlled by our on board systems, translates into a truly interactive operating experience.
When initialized and adequately powered, the V.e.r.a.1 will process information in the environment and intelligently respond to stimuli. In that state it will directly experience perceptions, sensations, and thoughts.
With a total of 11 pieces being made available, through preorder, the breakdown is as follows:
  • 6 Original Colorway V.e.r.a.1 - priced at $300 plus shipping
  • 1 Military Steel Colorway V.e.r.a.1 - priced at $400 plus shipping
  • 5 Unpainted Clear/Frosted Colorway V.e.r.a.1 - priced at $200 plus shipping
Overall, each V.e.r.a.1 measures around 10cm x 11.5cm x 9cm. With each V.e.r.a.1 being hand made by Brian, there will be differences in each one and should be handled and enjoyed with care. Also, keep in mind that this is a preorder and it is noted that shipment can be 4 months out. Be sure to check out PolyopticsLab for more info.
