The Circus is gearing up for another whirlwind party at DesignerCon 2012 and this year promises to be bigger than ever! Rocking three booths full of your favourite CP artists as well as some of our friends from Japan, expect a ton of art, merch and exciting new sofubi releases.

But more on all that soon! Let’s talk about what’s sitting smack dab in front of us: Kathie and Brandt’s new “Midnight” 4 -Legged and Mini Masao Skelves. A beautiful translucent blue with silver glitter and classic cream masks, these will debut at DCon with a larger online release later in the year. The 4-Legged’s are an edition of 66 figures while the minis are a run of 100. Pricing to come! Keep it locked for more DCon release announcements; we’re just getting warmed up!

DesignerCon is about six weeks away, and we will bringing you up to date info on what you can expect to see at this festival of fun. The dynamic duo of  Jason Limon and  Jeremiah Ketner  will be splitting a booth at the con, and Jason has been giving us a glimpse into what he will be bringing. Like he did at SDCC, Jason will have a smaller sized and price efficient figure that will easily be another sellout. He has been showing us a few work in progress shots of the piece, and it is looking fantastic! It will be a perfect companion to the little Ollie and Cyolo or any Limon piece actually. As November gets closer, the more stoked we will all get.

More updates soon, so keep checking back.

As part of his ‘… Of All Ages’ showcase at the DKE booth (#4728) at SDCC this year, uber sculptor Scott Wilkowski has infected Brandt Peters’ Kuma Skelve. Adding an incredible, prehistoric-like skeletal piece encased in smoke or ice-coloured resin, each colourway is limited to a mere 25 pieces each (50 total figures) and will retail for $300 a head.

I really can’t muster any more than a “holy shit” at this point. I can’t even decide on a colourway. Good luck to all who enter the breach for this these — they’ll be available starting Friday the 13th at noon!

Glenn Barr’s second spin of his popular LP-inspired art show, Lyric, opened last weekend at 323East Gallery in Royal Oak, Michigan. Much like last year’s exhibition, participating artists were appointed the task of creating a 12×12″ piece of art (i.e. the size of a record cover) inspired by a song of their choice.

For Travis Louie, it was all about Sheb Wooley’s 1958 classic, ‘Purple People Eater’. His interpretation of said beastlie is captured above in graphite. (It’s also still available — grab it here!)

Glenn Barr’s choice was a bit more current — an acrylic on wood piece inspired by Velvet Underground’s ‘Lisa Says’. The piece is sold.

Other artists participating in the show include Luke Chueh, Camilla d’Errico, Revok, Brett Amory, Eimi, Matt Eaton, Beau Stanton, Ron Zakrin, Tom Thewes, Tristan Eaton, Chikuwaemil, Shojonotomo, Mark Heggie, BASK, Ray Domzalski, Jeff Soto, Rick Morris, Chet Zar, Mark Dancy, Joey Seeman, THH70, Bryan Cunningham, William Wray, Davin Brainard, Daniel Peacock, David Diavu Vecchiato, Robert Nixon, Matt Gordon, Casey Weldon, Erik Otto, Martha Rich, John Dunivant, Derek Hess, Chris Dean, Dan Armand, April Segedi, Made514, Chris Reccardi and more!

Show’s on until May 21st; stop by if your travels take you through the fine state of Michigan!
