The Snot Beast V.3 will be released very soon, initially i was hoping to have more but as the mold tore in a very inconvenient place I only have 5. The release was planned for Friday the 11th but as luck would have it I was far too ill to finish painting. So a new date soon.
Next up is something I am very excited about, I started working on a warm up sculpt the other day in castilene I just so happened to do it in glyos scale, now I have decided it will be done in resin. Thanks to Eric over at OneShot toys (link anyone?) generously offered to do the molding and casting as my official collaborator, which will drastically lower costs and make a nice price point.
Next up on my plate will be my mini-figure project which currently houses an old foe and Oculus Viri soon to have a third bloke in the mix
Last but most certainty not least is my collaboration with Michael Skattum http://www.flickr.com/photos/ghastlymichael/
A sculpt of his character here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/ghastlymichael/5913158870/in/photostream
Lots more soon and I will get back to posting more often but as you can see I'm busy with these and then a bunch of stuff not ready for public viewing yet.

Then during demolding a slip of the hand left the skull destroyed, so I cut the face off removed the nasal canal and the eye sockets, sculpted a cowl. Once it had reached the bone dry state (ha ha) I carved the teeth a new to give it a better dental structure then proceeded to carve the area where Skeletor has the color change and decided it needed to be more armor like. I then burnished that armor area to give it the smooth sheen.
I painted this piece with a combination of acrylics and chalks, It now hangs on the shop walls but should be available online soon.

I decided a muscle style anagram would be a fun name and well here it is.
Nasty Enchanted Cadavers Rattling Onward
Now we are yet unsure whether we want to go resin or pvc, so input on that would rock as well!
Now we have 13 different skeletons in random garb, the intention is 2 points of articulation and accessories, paint aps etc..
So here's the deal we want you guys the community to vote it up and tell us which 3 guys we should produce first!
So have at folks feedback on pvc or resin and hit the comments and show us what you dig!

This figure blows Skekiltor away! You can see in the photos below the side by side comparison. Podiagon is bigger, articulated and just plain awesome.
He comes in a bag, with header art by Me
You can order him at our Shop here!
We will have solid colorways available in the coming week.

I found a crazy blank toy from roseart the color blanks, nabbed a few up and this one was perfect for skeletor. I hit him up with some polymer sculpted away and painted him up with acrylics and a semi gloss clear coat, metal chain and a cloth cape.
for sale on my etsy shop for $45.00 here:

Over the course of that year i learned a lot i made a lot of resins and wasted even more resin, as i mixed and poured i found i was have excess in the bottom of the cup. I decided to see what would happen and i started just pouring it on cardboard and throwing glitter and wasted resin bits on it a little paint here and there. During that year the experiment grew into a piece i rather enjoyed, i sculpted up a border and “feet” on it to have it stand as a center piece for a dinner table or coffee table.
Point is I am putting it up for sale on my etsy:

So our local Thriftway grocers has a small KO toy section, I just so happen to find so much charm in knockoffs bootlegs etc.. no matter how odd. I buy them often but this guy screamed for documentation. The card simply says Darkness Warriors with some pictures of the other toys along with caution ramblings.
See what i mean? wonderful crap that just begs to be torn off the peg and played with! I suppose that is what i do find so charming about a KO no background story rarely a name and often as in this case more accessories than you can shake a stick at!
In scale with imaginext: well sorta
Much more so with the figures from the beginning of their lines and just the perfect size for play.
As for mentioned accessories up the kazoo, not really all seemingly belonging to him but well sculpted and crazy morbid details. The skeletal hand staff is a very soft pvc-esque plastic as is the cage the rest a harder plastic to be similar to a green army man.
Articulated at his waist that makes me cringe and feel asthough the soft pvc he is made off may rip, the arms however swivel quite well.
All in all I love this figure! very little paint work what it does have is sloppy at best, what else can i expect from this much toy for $1.99? If you enjoy KO as much as i do i recommend picking some of these buggers up if you can find them they have a very ram-man-esque one at the store i will be picking up asap.

Run and hide! He is coming for your nose and that will make for a nasty sinus infection.
Hours ago i captured the snot beast in this containment jar and soon after sealed him in silicone. I have my test shot brewing in the mold now... Its just a matter of time before he spreads....
Test shot came out nice gotta watch one bubble catching spot aside from that were way ahead of schedule thinking about release dates now.
