WOW... is what I said when I watched this earlier today after reading Steve Talkowski's tweet about the amazing video that Dave Gittleman put together showcasing the custom Sketchbot show that happened at My Plastic Heart a week ago on Friday, March 26th 2010. This video really was put together nicely and you can never go wrong with a sweet Gorillaz track pumping through the whole thing! Do yourself a favor and watch this, and when you done CLICK HERE and go buy one of the customs that are still available. Thanks for sharing Steve, and thanks for the great video Dave!

"Lewis Ojeda aka Ghetto Geppetto's resin Stomarai Trooper (First covered HERE) came bagged with a header card with the reverse image of the trooper that said Toy street exclusive. Price was $80 each. 6" tall to top of helmet, with the helmet decoration it was 7" inches. I believe I was one of the only ones who got one and took photos of his hand painted version. The one I got said #9 of 10 so I am assuming that is the edition size or just a test run."
Art Hustle Artist Trading cards from Simeon Lipman, and was pretty stoked on these... Rob says that "Simeon brought the first printed cut set of cards that were just done last night before he arrived. He handed me sample cards from the set as well as the Sucklord and a couple others. Morgan Was kind enough to hand me his actual suck card from the set, Not a promo card.... they look amazing." More info and pictures to come from this event, but in the meantime... a huge thanks goes out to Rob for hooking us up with the insider info and pictures!
