SDCC 2012: Glow in the Dark Snyboras
Chris Ryniak's Snybora will be double trouble at this year's San Diego Comic Con, sneaking in the back door while the lights are off and wrecking the joint!

Figure designed and sculpted by Chris Ryniak, with paint design and execution by Joe Somers (Squibbles Ink) and Kirby Kerr (Rotofugi).
SDCC 2012: Bubble Gumdrop
Marshall's best friend Gumdrop is doing his best imitation of a piece of delicious bubble gum in this special edition. Bubble Gumdrop is a pup made of vinyl, so even though he looks like candy, don't try to eat him! This limited edition of 500 pieces will make it's debut at San Diego Comic Con at the Squibbles Ink + Rotofugi Booth (4736) for $8 (tax included) and will be available at rotofugi.com after the convention.
SDCC 2012: Rinaldo the Fabulous
Travis Lampe fans rejoice! It's been a while since we last did a Special Edition Tear Drip, but the drought is over! Meet Rinaldo the Fabulous...just like his Tear Drip bretheren, he's sad but in a perky and disarming way. Actually, that's not true...he isn't perky or disarming at all. Just sad. This limited edition of 300 pieces will make it's debut at San Diego Comic Con at the Squibbles Ink + Rotofugi Booth (4736) for $11 (tax included) and will be available at rotofugi.com after the convention.

Well, Indonesian-based artist Eric "Phantasma" Liem lives in a country where the most popular animated mouse, Didi Tikus, is actually a pretty fresh character geared towards modern youth… so it only makes sense that Phantasma should reinterpret the character as something geared towards the 70s urban demographic. Looking like something from a rejected Blaxploitation set, Phantasma's custom resin figure comes complete with Jheri curl hair and afro pick, not to mention those pimpin' large shades. All he needs are some buxom mice ladies on either side of him and some horrid tagline that would probably play "Tikus" against "Take Us."
