Andrew Bell – Glop in a Box: Bio Hazard Edition @ NYCC


Awesome.  Andrew Bell’s Glop in a Box  resin set from mphlabs  hits the cute yet slightly disturbing vibe just right.  As cool as Glop looks outside his box, he looks great in the box as well where his chin flows over the edges. Glop stands 4.5” tall and is almost nearly as wide (svelte, he is not).  This first Biohazard edition features hand-embellished chases – call ‘em ‘dirt’y featuring black grime and brown boxes instead of the standard gray.  Glop in a box  will drop from the myplasticheart booth (#2879) complete with signed packaging  in the cultyard @ NYCC for $90.   Hit the jump for more pics.

“A box showed up on my doorstep one afternoon. This is not an altogether unusual experience, boxes show up at my studio all the time. But when I bent down to pick it up I noticed there was something different about this particular package. The box itself was bulging, a viscous fluid was slowly leaking from the bottom, and the whole thing had a distinct musty smell. I leaned closer to read the return address on the shipping label, and that’s when it started moving…”

Keithing’s Dragon Warrior @ NYCC

Here’s a quick look at Keithing’s  completed Dragon Warrior resin figure (ed. of 50), the first of twelve Myth Warriors. Standing 10” tall, the Dragon Warriors feature a hand-painted treatment that gives the figures which were sculpted by Tony Montalvo, the appearance of stone.  These special figures come in a handsome wooden box featuring a burned-in logo – a nice touch which adds to the classic feel of the release.

The Dragon Warrior will makes it debut @ ToyQube’s booth(#2874)  in the Cultyard @ NYCC with 25 of the 50 pieces available for purchase for $160 each.   The other half of the run will be released following the convention.

Proto Monday >> Camilla d’Errico x Inner Sanctum: Kuro Vinyl


Today on Proto Monday we’re excited to reveal the first look at a proto of Camilla d’Errico’s upcoming Kuro vinyl figure in production from newcomer Inner Sanctum. Kuro, the evil yet adorable character from Camilla’s Tanpopo book series, has been released previously in plush both in  6” and 2’ forms but never vinyl.  In fact, this will be Camilla’s first original vinyl figure.  Shown here as a resin proto, the 6”  limited-edition figure, sculpted by Daniel Ritthanondh, is due for release in the Spring of 2011 in a few different editions.   He’s looking quite cute and seems to have made the jump rather nicely.

If you’re attending NYCC (10.8-10.10), you’ll want to know that Camilla will be officially unveiling Kuro at the ‘Art to Merchandise – How to Make More with Your Art’ panel to be held at the ‘con on Friday October 8th 2010 from 12:15 to 1:15 PM in Panel Room 5 (1A17-18).  Also, be sure to drop by her table (C11) in the Artist Alley starting on Friday @ 1 PM through the close of NYCC on Sunday (5 PM) for a nice selection of merch (books,  prints, comics, and more) as well as a brand-new print.

Brent Nolasco x Blamo – Mijo @ NYCC

Brent Nolasco  Blamo Figure 003

Having moved away from customs, Brent Nolasco is now exploring 3D work as an extension of his fine art.  His new   Mijo (my child) project done with Blamo is a glimpse of his new direction.  Brent sculpted Mijo completely from scratch, a first.  The six individual parts were then sent to Blamo who created the molds and cast the figure into resin.

The first hand-painted Mijo is an edition of one and will be offered by Tenacious Toys in their booth  (#2878) in the Cultyard @ NYCC for $300.  The debut piece marks the beginning of an artistic journey for Brent.  With complete control over every aspect of the figure (shape + deco)  Mijo is 100% his art in every sense.  The juxtaposition of wildly painted elements and the bare red translucent resin are the result of this creative freedom. Future Mijo editions will be extremely limited and many will be sculpturally distinct.  Brent plans to experiment and mix things up including the inclusion of different materials.

Hit the jump for additional photos of the completed piece as well as Brent’s sculpt.

The Cultyard @ NYCC (10.8 – 10.10)


We’re amped for the upcoming fifth New York Comic-Con (October 8th thru the 10th) @ the Javits Center in NYC.  This year’s show is bound to the best yet for art toys and counter culture with the addition of ‘The Cultyard’ section featuring a focused block of booths.  The new NYCC section builds off the galvanizing success of the Toy Grower’s Cultyard at SDCC and takes things one notch higher with a Cultyard-specific lounge area for unwinding and chatting in between booth crawling for exclusives and signings.

Speaking of booths, this year’s lineup features a strong mix of quintessential brands including 1st time NYCC exhibitors Kidrobot and Tokidoki, NYC stalwarts including myplasticheart and Toy Tokyo, as well as new energetic companies such as RAJE Toys and Monster Worship.  Oh and your favorite toy blog (well ok, our favorite toy blog). 

There’s alot going on this year from live ‘cubez’ painting from Phetus and Elite Gudz and live DJs in the lounge to the massive Re:Form School art show opening on Saturday, October 9th in a reclaimed school house on Mott Street between Houston and Prince.

With the new show-within-a-show Cultyard, this year’s NYCC is a no-brainer if you live in or around NYC.

Paul Kaiju Lil’ Boss Carrions & Trunk Toppers


Paul Kaiju has been a busy busy man, gearing up for the upcoming NYCC. He has been posting non-stop photos of goodies we are hoping to see in New York. Take a look at the colorful array of  little resin Boss Carrions he sculpted and casted himself. He has also put together the “Circus Girl” trunk toppers, which fit perfectly upon the trunk of his Boss Carrion figure. I didn’t think he would be able to top the magnetic baby biters, but he certainly proved me wrong. Be sure to keep a look out for Paul at the Onell Booth #2780 in The Cultyard.
