Destination Designer Con: DrilOne WIP

  • by

IMG_5652All of our artists are super busy these days getting ready for Designer Con 2013We’re getting a steady stream of little tidbits, and rush to get it out to you as soon as we can.

We did get an update from DrilOne this weekend, and he says he is in the lab mixing up all kinds of greatness for the con. It looks like he is working on a Skelve of sorts with a treademarlk gas mask!

This is only a work in progress image, but the clues are there, and looking positively fabulous. We know that this toy is shaping up to be a classic Dril piece, so get ready. More details soon!


Destination Designer Con: Fuzzlethump!

  • by

Get ready to break out the “aww” and “ohh” sounds, because for Designer Con 2013 Chris Ryniak has a brand new monster in the works.
Meet the 3.5″  Fuzzlethump! He’s full of big eyes and is rubbing its hands together, like it has conceived a master plan to obtain all your Halloween candy while you sleep. He probably is in cahoots with Chris’ Bugbites for fiendish plans!
For the convention, Chris will have 10 of these little fella all cast and painted by him up for grabs. Seeing as the con is over two days, we will probably spread them out over both of those. Have you got your tickets yet?

Leecifer is joining CP’s booth party at DesignerCon this Saturday and with him he’ll be bringing a whole whack of incredible resin Stingy Jack customs! Pictured above is the Candy Corn Stingy Jack, a “micro run” of 10 figures, each retailing for $175. He’ll also have five one-off customs on hand for $250 per. A taster of those is posted below! Circus Posterus will be stationed at booth #500; be sure to say hello!

DesignerCon kicks off Nov. 3rd for one day only at the Pasadena Convention Centre in Pasadena, CA.

Destination Designer Con: Sawdust Bear

  • by

Holy Shai Hulud Batman! We just talked about Sawdust Bear the other day, and now we get the scoop on her Designer Con goods.

Above we have the Fatty Bugs! Living up to their name, they are fat and round!

“They all have slightly different faces, although they’ll generally fall into one of the following categories – “I’m HUNGRY!”, “I’ve eaten too much, but I’m still hungry” or “Why won’t you feed me, I’m hungry?”.”

There probably wont be more than 5 of each color of these plump beasties. The price will be around $40, with a wood base, although there will also be some variants in the $30 range. It looks like if they roll over on their back, they are pretty much screwed on rolling back over.

Now we have the Gravebeast plaques. Their facial expressions are awesome, and I think the dude on the far left is mocking me while the middle one cant believe the mocking. The far right gravebeast  seems to be pondering how to get my tofu sandwich without me knowing.

“No one has ever seen the back half of a gravebeast. These specimens were modeled after notes and sketches by a grave robber and amateur painter. These gravebeasts share the same body type, but are customized to be one of a kind.” They’ll be priced under $100.

What is this? Looks familiar. Wait it is, Rockfiends by sawdustbear x fplus!

Shing best details this piece for Designer Con:

” I’ve been constantly impressed with Josh’s painting and customizing skills, so when he mentioned he’d like to paint a larm or five, I was all HELL YEAH. We traded a batch of sculpts with each other, and I’ve been slowly turning his fungal fiend sculpts(previously seen with his awesome “The Corrupter” figures) into critters that would live in my world as rock fiends.”

Only a tad over 3 weeks away until Pasadena gets hits with all are excited faces and broke wallets!

Destination DesignerCon: Part One

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.
