Hippo Titan Soldier Deep Warp Gunner C2E2 2015 Exclusive from Galaxxor x ManOrMonster Studios

The Hippo Titan Soldiers of Kabbagiff are, primarily, a terrestrial military force. Using their imposing bulk and extraordinary skill with the blunderbuss, the Kabagiffian soldiers have helped push back the forces of gorgax and his Evil Mutant legions on many planets, throughout the Galaxxorverse. 
The Deep Warp gunners are the elite of the elite Hippo Titan Soldiers. Hand picked by Sgt. Krugg and equipped with special Deep Warp Conversion Armor, Hippo titan Soldier Deep Warp Gunners are ideal for outer space and inter-dimensional combat situations.
When General Gorgax unlocked the cosmic powers of the Omega Matrix, Infiniton of the Seven Space Gods tasked Galaxxor 014 to take an elite team of Hippo Titan Soldier Deep Warp Gunners to the digital city C2-E215 to battle Gorgax and his Cyborg Space Barbarian minions. The fate of the Galaxxorverse hangs in the balance of this epic conflict!
Brandon Barker of ManOrMonster? Studios and I made the first Hippo Titan Soldier almost two years ago, and we've been meaning to get back to another edition of them, but done in a slightly more far out colorway. When we came to the decision to do one in a deep, glossy purple with neon green and black accents for C2E2, Brandon also suggested we revisit the original shoulder design of the figure. After a bit of back and forth design chat, Brandon came back with what you see here. He really did an incredible job of building upon the pre-existing aesthetic and taking the design to the next proverbial level. I'm incredibly pleased with how these came out and can't wait to do a few more editions of these bad boys in the future.
Spelljammer for life!
Hippo Titan Soldier Deep Warp Gunner is a 5.5" art toy that was designed and sculpted by Ben Spencer and ManOrMonster? Studios and engineered and produced in resin by ManOrMonster?. It was hand painted by Ben Spencer. The Hippo Titan Soldier features 3 points of magnetic articulation at the arms and waist. It also features a magnetic blunderbuss accessory, which can be held in his hand, or mounted on his thigh or back.
Limited to an edition of 5, The Hippo Titan Soldier Deep Warp Gunner will be $75 each and will exclusively be available at Nerd City's booth #760 at C2E2.

Galaxxor Swag for C2E2 2015

C2E2 is just about a week away. Here in the home stretch, it's a mad dash to tie up loose ends, finish up projects and organize all of the madness that will be Nerd City's booth #760. I've got one more exclusive to announce, but I wanted to quickly share a couple of other cool little things that we'll have at the booth. Pictured above is a new sticker that I'll be launching, the 5.5"x7" "Cosmic Halftone" sticker will be available for free for just popping by the booth, checking some Galaxxor goodness and saying, "Hi".
We'll also have this really great 3.5" patch that I did with my friend, Mark, from Until We Burn. This neon green/black/white patch is fully sewn and will be going for just $5 each as a con special. 
I'm really looking forward to seeing everybody at C2E2 this year. Stay tuned over the next week for a couple more updates and surprises!

Omega Matrix Power General Gorgax C2E2 2015 Exclusive

When General Gorgax unlocked the cosmic powers of the Omega Matrix, Infiniton of the Seven Space Gods tasked Galaxxor 014 to take an elite team of Hippo Titan Soldier Deep Warp Gunners to the digital city C2-E215 to battle Gorgax and his Cyborg Space Barbarian minions. The fate of the Galaxxorverse hangs in the balance of this epic conflict!
In the Galaxxorverse, there are many Galaxxors, but really only one General Gorgax. So, in essence, any Gorgax that I do from here on out will be a variant, of sorts. I've always had a soft spot for those super over the top variants of figures that they used to pump out in the 80's/90's. Who wants a neon green Scuba Attack Batman? No one. But, sometimes, those figures got so crazy that something beautiful happened. So, Omega Matrix Power General Gorgax is my tribute to that sort of figure, along with a tip of the hat to another iconic snake of a villain that rocked that iconic mirror chrome face plate.
Omega Martix Power General Gorgax is a 5.5" art toy that was designed and sculpted by Ben Spencer and engineered and produced in semi-translucent neon pink resin by The Godbeast and True Cast Studio. Gorgax was hand painted by Ben Spencer. He features 3 points of articulation at the arms and head.
Limited to an edition of 5, Omega Matrix Power General Gorgax will be $90 each and will exclusively be available at Nerd City's booth #760 at C2E2.

Galaxxor 014 C2E2 2015 Exclusive

 When General Gorgax unlocked the cosmic powers of the Omega Matrix, Infiniton of the Seven Space Gods tasked Galaxxor 014 to take an elite team of Hippo Titan Soldier Deep Warp Gunners to the digital city C2-E215 to battle Gorgax and his Cyborg Space Barbarian minions. The fate of the Galaxxorverse hangs in the balance of this epic conflict!
The head of Galaxxor 014 is a new addition to our library of bits and its design goes back to a weekend I spent hanging out and sculpting at True Cast Studio a couple of years ago. Being a 40K fan, I always loved the look of the Eldar, and wanted to create something that called back to their iconic pointy helms, but that would also blend into the more bulky proportions of the Galaxxor buck. Somewhere along the way, a little bit of my love of late 80's/early 90's McFarlane art crept in there, as well. Marty "The Godbeast" Hansen and the boys at True Cast Studio really knocked it out of the proverbial park with the color of the translucent smoke resin base. In low light, it comes off as a super glossy dark gray, but in high light, it appears to be almost clear. I've always dug clear toys. There's something so cool to me about being able to see their inner workings through the material. I feel like Galaxxor 014 has a bit of that magic.

Cyborg Space Barbarian Kromulus C2E2 2015 Exclusive from Galaxxor x Zoloworld

As General Gorgax's elite goons, the Cyborg Space Barbarians are an essential part of the Galaxxorverse. I love the way that the original helmet I sculpted came out, and I really enjoy making more barbarian-style characters, but as the core Galaxxor brand continues to evolve, I really wanted to move away from them simply being new heads on old MOTU bodies. My buddy Mike, from Zoloworld, and I have been chatting about doing some sort of collaborative work for a while, now. So, it only made sense to look to his awesome Realm of the Underworld line of vintage-style action figures as a possible base upon which to re-launch the Cyborg Space Barbarian concept.Originally conceived as a two-off project for Mike and I to see how the Cyborg Space Barbarian helmet looked with the Zoloworld barbarian buck, Kromulus got a great deal of positive feedback from the pictures that I posted online. So, I decided to do an extremely limited number of these guys as one of my exclusives for C2E2 this year.
So, as opposed to using disused vintage figures for the bodies, the Kromulus figures will feature brand new Zoloworld bucks, which are then hand painted. They will feature 5 points of articulation, at the shoulders, waist and legs. Please let me know if this is something that you'd like to see more of in the future. I'd really like to work with Zoloworld some more, and it might be a cool opportunity to get some top quality Cyborg Space Barbarians into the hands of more collectors.
Cyborg Space Barbarian Kromulus is a 5.5" art figure that features a head sculpted by Ben Spencer, which was then cast in resin by Marty "The Godbeast" Hansen and True Cast Studio. The figure features a custom painted Zoloworld body, which sports 5 points of articulation. Kromulus comes with an Omega Matrix Orbs necklace accessory. This figure is limited to an edition of 3 and they will be $75 each from The Nerd City booth in The Block at C2E2 (April 24-26 in Chicago, IL). 
I will have quite a few more exclusives to announce in the next month or so, so stay tuned to the Galaxxor blog for all of the latest and greatest!

The Story of the Tricera-Tanks

https://farm8.staticflickr.com/7396/16418679436_3ab4240297_b.jpg

Shortly before a devastating meteor impact on Planet Prehis, a team of soldiers and scientists of the Lazer-Saur race were sent into space to find a place that was told to be the source of life. This fabled place was the so called "Forbidden Zone", palladium of the Prima Materia, which was protected by an ancient ape civilization known as the Holo Apes. The Lazer-Saurs had to construct the ultimate weapon to stand against an almost invincible force. They created the Tricera-Tanks: powerful, fully robotic dino warriors!  
The Tricera-Tanks are the Lazer-Saurs last hope to defeat the Holo Apes, gather the essence of life, return to their home planet, and to save Prehis from its fate.

Tricera-Tank Art by JB Roe!

http://jbroe.com/ 
When planning the drop for the Lazer Saurs Tricera-Tank, I knew that I wanted to do something extra special, in terms of art. Luckily, one of my favorite artists, and a dude who was perfect for the job just so happens to be a very good friend of mine. JB Roe has a really striking art style that lent itself wonderfully to the subject matter of hulking, clockwork triceratops tank men.  Originally just setting out to include a character image for the header cart art, we decided that this image was just too cool not to include as a full art print. So, each of the Tricera-Tank figures that drop this Friday, 02.06.14 at Noon CDT, will also include an extremely limited edition high quality 8"x10" art print of JB's work.
JB really knocked it out of the park with this one, but you're totally cheating yourself if you don't head over to his official page and check out the scope of amazing stuff he's done.
And remember, Tricera-Tank, my collab twith Goodleg Toys drops this Friday, 02.06.15 at noon CDT from The Galaxxor Online Store.
