Designer-Con 2011: Zombiemonkie

D-Con is approaching fast... only 3 days away... and Mikie Graham is excited to unveil what he has in store for the show. This year for the first time ever Mikie will be splitting booth #208 with long time creative partners Blamo Toys. Along with the collection of custom toys that you would expect Mikie to bring with him, he has put together several surprises for the show. From a special release of his self made 40 page photobook, the sale of his remaining Z.A.P. figures, to an exclusive colorway of his newest Yokaiju resin figure "Chochinobake". The exclusive "Ectoplasmic GID green" edition is limited to only 5 in existence and will sell for a mere $60. As with the previous two Chochionbake releases, this colorway was designed, sculpted, and painted by Mikie and was graciously molded and poured by Motorbot of Deadbear studios- truly a great collaboration!

What else can you expect from booth #208? Well Mikie will be bringing a massive collection of open box mini figures to sell! That's right, this long time collector is trimming down his collection and getting rid of literally HUNDREDS of his personal display figures. These figures typically come without packaging but with prices ranging from $5-15, this is a great way for beginning collectors to pick up some old and rare Mini figures at a great price and without the hassle of blind box pulling.

Designer-Con 2011: Jay222


This year for Designer-Con, artist Jay222 has pulled out all the stops... creating some amazing one-off custom pieces as well as sculpting and casting some collab pieces... which brings me to the first of many pieces I want to touch on. Jay teamed up with DrilOne to create a really great 3D sculpted graff inspired tag... that reads DrilOne and Jay222. Jay goes onto tell us that "This piece came to idea at the end of D-Con last year. Dril and I were talking as we had just got done watching our friends do live painting. We thought it would be dope, if next year we came with a sculpted piece that we could attach to the canvas and paint. So, D-Con is upon us once again, and we are bringing our piece that we collabed on."... a great idea! Not only is this piece for the canvas, but they will be available at the Dragatomi booth for sale... and in a multitude of different colors, shades, and hand-paints! Prices start at $25 a piece... and are limited, so if ya dig, go get one!

Jay also created a ton of customs for the show, like the above Baby Qee "This bear can't hug you", Dunny "Gas Mask Gary", Androids "The day after", and the rad resin clown and custom Borracho that you see above! Keep in mind that these are just a taste of what you can find at both the Dragatomi booth #325, and the SS.com booth #324! So stop by both to see all the amazing work! Hit the jump for a multitude of pictures!

"Clifford the Werewolf" custom Foomi by Podgy Panda

Check out this really cool custom that Richard K. aka Podgy Panda recently created for Sneaky Raccoon's 5th anniversary show at KR LDN (which went down last Friday). Richard tells us that "I wanted to create a scenario for Clifford, the peanut butter and jelly eating werewolf, which tells the story of his demise. If you look at the silhouette of the wolf pack, it's in the shape of a claw, ready to pounce on wee Clifford." How fun right?!?! He even wrote a poem to go along with he story... and it's on the tombstone for all to read! The custom is still available on the shows online store over HERE, and do keep in mind that 50% the proceeds from his custom will go towards the Macmillian Cancer Support... a worthy cause indeed! Great stuff pandaman!

These never seen before figures are called "Flirps"... which in fact are Sergey's very first mini series. According to Sergey, these very curvacious figures belong to 'Gooma' world, and along with these he is planning to publish stories about them later this year.
