Big CONGRATS to our own Mikee Riggs because he is about to unleash his baby known as Ian the Sewer Creep!
NYCC-goers, consider this your first and only warning to GTFO because NYC is about to get a whole lot scummier. Originally a gang of ragtag punks and skaters who hung around the waste tunnels of Pelican City, a toxic spill turned the defiled Sewer Creeps from no-good hoodlums into no-good mutants! And now, after months of living in dumpsters, skulking the sewers and doing whatever is necessary to survive, Sewer Creep gang leader Ian is taking a step into daylight for the first time ever this weekend as a part of New York Comic Con.
The brain child of rabid Kaiju collector and Stranger Factory’s own Mikee Riggs of Toys Are Sanity, Ian The Sewer Creep is 7in. of sofubi scum! Designed by Riggs and sculpted by Papagrim Toys, Ian will debut in black factory paint and handpaint versions this weekend via the Monster Island Table (#3317). Factory paints are $60, customs TBA.
Good for Mikee! Now everyone go get one or suffer my look of haughty derision.
NYCC takes place Oct. 11-14 at Javits Center in New York City!
Ok it doesn’t have one eye or one horn and it doesn’t fly but it is a purple.
You loved this fella at SDCC and swooned at the Bewitching II color and now, the Designer Toy Awards have another exclusive for this happy axolotl. Get ready because it is the clear purple colorway of Gary Ham‘s “Wooper Looper“. Like most releases at this award show it is ultra limited to only 8 copies and only $60. It seems you will have to pick and choose at the DTA award show because you wont get many of these exclusives.

For a great post on all other shenanigans at NYCC, please visit the great list done by MPH here.
He just made our jaws drop at Bewitching II at Stranger Factory, and now Seymour aka Peter Kelk is on his way to NYCC. Coming more equipped than Batman’s utility belt, Seymour is bringing 2D and 3D work along with himself to the big apple at the Strychnin Gallery Booth #1780. Up first is the “The Colonial Crusaders” limited to an edition of only 100 this play on the DC Comics superheroes is perfect for the convention, and it is full of righteous mustaches. Then he has an exceptional one off, Colonial Crusader Batman sculpt. This will make all fan boys proud especially considering it comes in a completely awesome handmade case with an extra interchangeable head for the zombie lovers out there. Like the print, Batman’s mustache is pretty epic too. Stop by and say hello to Seymour when there.
