1999: A Little Red Corellian Cor-Vette
Next up from DKE Toys, Booth #2523, is 1999: A Little Red Corellian Cor-Vette by Lazarus Toys. This card backed figure is priced at $75 a piece and limited to a signed and numbered edition of just 25 pieces. Each 3.75" figure is hand cast and painted. As with most of these carded figures, the cardback really does a lot to provide context for this piece.

Resin Garage Kit Releases Worth Coveting by Piyotycho

Resin Garage Kit Releases Worth Coveting by Piyotycho

"Hornpot" Original Character from Piyotycho

Piyotycho is a Japanese-based Illustrator I've followed on Instagram for a number of years, and the creator & author of original comic projects. A couple of my favourite recurring characters are "Hornpot" (pictured above) and "Clawia" (below).

"Clawdia" by Piyotycho

They're fun characters, and appear often on Piyotycho's feed, bursting with personality (among other personal assets). So, I was thrilled to see resin figure adaptations previewed for both these monster-babes. 

It's a lot of fun to see a character who appears exclusively in 2D media make the transition to 3D. And, on seeing these were garage kits (kind of a do-it-yourself resin toy assembly style, not uncommon in Japan), my first question was quite literally, how can I buy and paint this? The answer took a little digging. Sculptor @kuroganeT2 is responsible for the fun translation of characters to paintable resin kits, and has recently debuted them at 2 Japan-only exhibition events, Comike 94 and Osaka's GWC. 

 Updates on sales events are being posted to KuroganeT2's blog here, so I suppose for those of you like me who can't pop over to Japan for a quick shopping trip, we may be calling in a friend favour to acquire these awesome kits! You can find more of Piyotycho's art updates on Instagram @Piyotycho

EPIC MAIL DAY: Tuttz Fairy Cats Series 3 by Argonaut Resins

EPIC MAIL DAY: Tuttz Fairy Cats Series 3 by Argonaut Resins

Tuttz Fairy Cats Series 3

I realize that this may be an extremely frustrating blog post for many of you, but I had to share this wonderful blue GID Tuttz Fairy Cat figure that we just received from Argonaut Resins. Eric is fantastically talented at the design and production of his original resin characters. They are so SO CLEAN and perfect.

Eric tends to release his figures, like this third wave of his Fairy Cats, pretty randomly. Once released, you can pick up his resins in his shop here, but to keep on top of his future releases, your best bet is to follow his blog here. Basically, he will randomly update his blog and let everyone know what's about to drop in the shop.

You will never be disappointed with the quality. In fact, the quality of the Argonaut resin figures may make you second guess the other resin figures in your collection... they're that good. END started working in resin before most of us knew what resin was. Big ups to END, godfather of "designer" resin toys!

UK Artist Lumps Rolls Out Slumpo 6.5" Resin Figure

UK Artist Lumps Rolls Out Slumpo 6.5" Resin Figure

Slumpo

Sam Drew aka Lumps, illustrator and designer from Cardiff, UK, collaborated with Mighty Jaxx in 2017 on the first Lumps art toy 'Cig Pack'. Since then, Lumps has been hard at work sculpting his next art toy 'Slumpo' which will be produced under his own British design brand and will be released for pre-order on 3rd August 2018.
The toys will be produced in the UK using cast resin and hand painted.
About Slumpo
Slumpo's were a group of human beings who lived out their lives in an underground fast food testing facility established in the 1940’s.  Confined to small spaces and fed only on new burger and Pizza concepts, the humans no longer needed to move for work or food and they quickly evolved into obedient and deflated Slumpo’s.
Still in operation today, we have been able to locate the facility and smuggle out a limited number of Slumpo’s in old waste disposal boxes. The smuggled Slumpo's are now free and ready for a safe new home.
The Slumpo’s were all tagged and numbered for testing, but their old human names are included in each box. Please do not attempt to find or contact the food testing facility directly as you will be putting the freedom of thousands of Slumpo's at risk.
Warning:  Please do not place your Slump near fast food as this will be too tempting for them.

  • Hand Sculpted by the artist Lumps
  • Limited Edition - Each is numbered on the yellow testing tag
