Le Merde @ SDCC


We are very excited to hear see some SDCC news from Le Merde. Posted up on his blog we’re a few sneak peeks of what he’s got coming to you for Comic Con. Being released is a new colorway of his Megalith figure by Gargamel, which was first released during his custom show at Thrashout from a few months back, which was mentioned here. He also shares another photo of his mini Burgerbun resins in GID form! We cannot wait to see what else he will be bringing to the Grasshut/Gargamel booth (#4739).

Paul Kaiju @ SDCC

Paul Kaiju has been busting his rump getting ready for SDCC. We’ve been following his Flickr stream and we’ve noticed a lot of figures that makes us feel that Friday couldn’t come any sooner. There we will see his long awaited Salamander Joe figure, which features a clear vinyl with a touch of milky added to the base, with aqua and pink sprays. Also making its debut is his newest resin figure, Mockbat. There will be 10 individual handpaints available, which should be gone in a flash. Then there is Paul’s Boss Carrion figure, who made his first appearance at last years SDCC and has been selling out almost immediately since then. He mentions that there will be a variety of limited styles available during his release, which is taking place on Friday, July 22nd from 1-3PM at the Global Figure Symposium booth (#4937).

Grody Shogun – SDCC & Lulubell Release of Monster


Grody Shogun has been teasing us with a bunch of sneaks peaks of his newest figure, Monster. He even sent out a tweet saying, “Any one good at math? 4 bodies, 6 heads and eight arms cast in 5 different colors. What's the chance of there being 2 alike?”, which makes us curious of what he has up his sleeves. That has now been revealed, all thanks to Lulubell Toys. Available now HERE and at the DKE booth (#4728) during SDCC are what the first-unpainted-prototype-one-off versions of Monster! The chances of finding the same figure with same colors, arms, heads, and bodies is highly unlikely. These stand 6” tall with 3 points of articulation and will be available for $25 as blind bags.

Brent Nolasco x J*Ryu – ‘My Drifting Heart’ @ SDCC

006-B NOLASCO JRYU My Drifting Heart 06
You’ve seen the unpainted sculpt, now feat your eyes on the first fully painted edition of  Brent Nolasco x J*Ryu’s ‘My Drifting Heart’.  Brent’s stunning hand-painting work pulls out all the detail of J*Ryu’s sculpt and Dodgrr’s cast pieces.  From Brent’s spot-on signature colors to the realistic rendering of the metal and wood surfaces, this is a painting come to life in thrilling 3D fashion. 

While this first colorway is limited to 10 pieces, it’s unclear at the moment how many will be available at the Dragatomi booth (#4935).  Brent is in crunch mode, painting away as the mother of all shows approaches. Pre-orders will be taken at the booth for the remaining, yet to be completed pieces.  No word on pricing yet. We’re eager to check out ‘My Drifting Heart’ in person.

"The heart drifts freely in the ebb and flow of our lives, with the tide's current taking it wherever it pleases. Knowing that it is fragile, thorns and spiky barriers are erected, armoring itself from those who wish to do it harm or to protect itself from the feelings it cannot help. And for every heart, there is but one key out there that can finally release it to flourish and fly, and shed itself of the ghosts that remain. It may not know where it may heading, but eventually the drifting heart will find it's way..."
