Secret Base Boogie

In usual fashion, I split the Secret Base figure into two, here is Part 1. This is the head part of the figure and the sculpted body was inspired by Nightmare Before Christmas' Oogie Boogie. This piece is another that debuted at Dragatomi's booth in DCon.

Custom Collab with J*Ryu for ToysREvil

Since this is the holiday of giving and thanking, this collab piece is so appropriate with its timing. For those of you who know, Andy of Toysrevil, has been in the hospital for almost a month now from a stroke. He has always been generous with toy coverage and contributions to the art/toy world. Upon hearing the news, Cris Rose was kind enough to start pulling artists' contributions and donations together to raise funds for Andy's medical expenses. To do our part, this 8" Munny collab I did with J*Ryu will be for sale and the money will go towards the cause.
The piece debuted at DCon this past weekend. J*Ryu sculpted the oni mask on one side while I finished the rest of the sculpting and painted the whole piece.

(pictured below: unpainted/primed figure)

J*Ryu said he had a great time doing the piece and looks forward to many more collabs to come in the future. To be honest, when I received his sculpted oni mask, I was afraid that I would ruin the figure with anything else I tried to sculpt. I was relieve to have his approval once it was completed.

Kaiju Bazaar - Mark Nagata

From the start of my first custom on Mark Nagata's toy, Tripus, I knew I wanted to do another custom using his figures. This time, I worked on an Eyezon, split the figure into two in my usual fashion and these are the results:

Last night was the opening of Kaiju Bazaar, curated by Mark Nagata and hosted by Double Punch. Here are a few pictures from the opening night:

Much apologies as I have no pictures of the pieces by DeadPresidents and RealxHead....
Kirkland of Toybot Studios doing a quick video interview with Mark on the scene.
Mark talked about the little gifts that were presented to him. I was surprised and humbled by the coverage he gave to my toys. I'm relieved and happy that he enjoy them.
Fantastic night! There were TONS of pieces sold within the first hour of the opening - go to Double Punch for all the great art pieces still available now!
