Plaseebo for Rotofugi's Toy Karma 3 Show opening September 10th, and you've gotta click on the image to check out all the detail this beast has to offer. Called "Boss Carry-on Partyphant P-2", it's a one-of custom mash-up of Paul Kaijus clear vinyl Boss Carrion and Plaseebos own hand cast resin Ink head with inset eyes and a belly full of party favors illuminated by an internal color-changing LED unit that turns on by rotating the fish head on his rear. Ready to Party the night away!
Nebulon5 for the BRAIN EVOLUTION show coming up on Sept. 16th @ Toy Art Gallery! On the left is "Schizophrenic Brain; No I'm Not, Yes You Are" and is hand painted/airbrushed resin. On the right is "Jellicus Cerebelius Nebulous, Specimen No.1" which has been remolded, then hand sculpted, mold and cast in resin. This one is all hand painted and mounted on a hand stained and polished wood base. It also comes with a custom nameplate... and those tentacles are just sick!! Hit up Nebulon5's flickr for more of his artwork, or check out the show at TAG, opening on September 16th and running through October 10th.
Big Kev’s Geek Stuff' - an awesome weekly podcast - had their studio broken into and all of their gear stolen! Now this is super unfortunate, but just like all small communities we all bond together and try to make the most of is, that is why the folks over at OctoberToys/ToyBreak have teamed up with BKGS to get a fundraiser going... where essentially artists are donating all kinds of stuff to be auctioned off and sold to raise funds to help this show get back on their feet! If you are at all interested, please visit either the official site HERE or the thread in the forum HERE. Every little bit can help, and if you would like to donate art, or just some cash, do so!
Matt"Lunartik"Jones is here to help, in fact he put together a really cool illustrated guide that give the novice user information on how to create your own resin figure! This resin casting guide booklet called "Plastik Surgery" is up for grabs HERE as a digital download for just £1... and above is a little taste of what you can expect! I think arming yourself with as much knowledge when it comes to casting is a very god thing, and if you are just getting into it, this is a fun way to get started!
NST just released a set of 10 unique Dunny customs he is calling "Killer Tree Frogs"! These are up for grabs HERE right now for $50 shipped and are distributed via blind box, with the chance of snagging a rare chase figure... not pictured above!
