Fugg the Slayer from Galaxxor x BigManToys Drops 07.31.15 at Noon CDT


Once a ruthlessly savage warlord from the planet Orkamania, Fugg the Slayer is now one of the most feared combatants in the fighting arenas of the hive planet X-544. Tasked by a wealthy hive aristocrat with hunting down a suitable opponent for The Lucha Sharks, Ciper the Bounty Hunter captured Fugg from his home planet and brought him to X-544. Every bit as flamboyant as he is violent, Fugg now stands at the top of the ranks of the hive world arena fighters, terrorizing even The Lucha Sharks!


Fugg the Slayer is a 5.5"-style art figure that features a head and hands that were sculpted/mashed up by Ben Spencer, and a body buck and removable championship belt that was sculpted/mashed up by the mighty BigManToys. The head and hands are cast in resin, but the body and belt are cast in a softer polyurethane rubber. Both resin and rubber production were handled by Bigmantoys. Fugg is also hand painted by Ben Spencer, and he features soft goods arm bands and neck articulation.

Fugg the Slayer comes in bag and header packaging.  He will be limited to an edition of 5 at $70 each, exclusively through The Galaxxor Online Store on 07.31.15 at noon CDT.

Fugg the Slayer, Coming Soon From Galaxxor x BigManToys!

A collaboration between BigManToys and yours truly has become an annual event of sorts. Lee from BigMan is an extremely talented artist who I'm honored to call a peer and a friend. 
Recently, Lee created a new one piece 5.5" buck. Ideal for customization, the buck, at it's core, is ideal for a wrestler-type character, but also suitable for a virtually endless amount of customization potential. Running with the concept of BigManToys' new base body, and intrigued by the fact that it could be produced in a polyurethane  rubber (similar to the old LJN WWF figures), I decided that I wanted to have a go at a wrestler-type dude. I've got a love of Orcs, dating back to my earliest days of playing D&D and extensively informed by all of the great Games Workshop media of the early 90's. So, it was a no brainer to try to sculpt/mash up the head of that great classic Orc action figure that I always wanted, but never got.
I wanted to approach the design of the hands in a way that continued to develop the idea of the character I was beginning to see in my head- brutal, yet comedically flamboyant. I had come up with the name of "Fugg the Slayer" for this guy, so the idea popped into my head to create hands sporting brass knuckles/four finger rings that sayd "FUGG" and "LIFE". I also mashed together bits for a championship belt, featuring a skull from a vintage Nightmare Warrior.
So, these are some snaps, courtesy of Lee, of the first pull of good old Fugg. The head and hands are cast in hard resin, but the body and belt will be in pu rubber. I intend to add some paint aps on the head and hands, as well as a couple of other little flourishes. The body material, however, doesn't accept paint, so that's going to stay solid green. BigManToys is currently finishing these up, and then they have to make the trip over to this side of the ocean for painting. But, I would imagine that I should have details about how you can get down with that Fugg Life in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

I've been meaning to get some sort of a new Galaxxor shirt together for quite a while, now. So, when the opportunity came about to get some work done by my friend, Chris Faccone, I jumped at the chance! I really love Chris's work and knew that he'd be the right dude to bring that cosmic madness to a Galaxxor illustration.
In order to make the shirts available to the greatest number of people, in a variety of styles and sizes, I figured that Redbubble was my best option for a vendor on these things. Please keep in mind that Redbubble also offers a variety of different color options, but this design was created with a black background in mind. So, I would highly advise that you either go with a solid black tee or the black 3/4 baseball shirt with the white sleeves (my personal favorite!).
Go get your very own Galaxxor Monster Hunter Robo shirt right here!

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.
