Brandt Peters X Ferg Squadt at the opening of Ferg's solo show at Rotofugi, where they sold out in a heartbeat, and now just announced today is the retailer exclusive version of this rad figure dubbed "Trouble Boy #45" [Scram ]. This 6" vinyl figure includes a 3 piece suit and tie, a .45 pistol, 2 sets of arms, extra amber eye lenses, and a removable fedora hat and helmet. These are set to retail for $85 a piece and will be at most all designer vinyl retail locations starting TOMORROW, Monday March 21st, 2011! These figures are super slick and will go fairly fast so if your thinking about grabbing one, do it now before it's to late.
HERE now is this awesome custom Hellboy Qee but San Francisco based artist DrilOne. He took the already fantastic Hellboy Qee shape and added to it by rusting it up with tons of rivets and additional minor sculpted pieces. He also went the distance with this piece by cutting out the eyes and adding a super bright orange/yellow LED unit to the body where when turned on the eyes glow... stellar work!!! Like mentioned before, it's up for grabs HERE right now, so go and pull the trigger on this awesome 1-of custom by Dril!
K.olin tribu has just announced the release of their first collaboration with Ron English, and it's Ron's classic "McSupersized" figure! We don't have any details other than the release date which is slated for Wednesday, March 30, 2011 via their online site HERE! I can't really tell if that necklace is part of the piece, or is an accessory, and if it is part of the piece it appears to be hollow... pretty cool looking nonetheless :-)
Daniel Goffin put together... and it's pretty obvious that he did not just use the one figure for it as he states that he had some help from some Glyos pieces by Onell Design and pieces of his own "Charlize Harlow" resin toy.... where once piece together formed a hyper-futuristic creation that was painted with acrylics and stands over 5" tall! You can see this in person at the traveling Matt "Lunartik" Jones' Custom Mini Tea Toy Show starting in Berlin at Gallery 43°! Great work Daniel!
