Galaxxor 013 C2E2 Exclusive from Galaxxor x The Godbeast

After I saw just how stunningly awesome the newly reworked Galaxxor turned out (thanks to my good friends, The Godbeast and True Cast Studio), I really wanted to revisit one of the looks that Marty and I had played around with on Galaxxor 005 and Galaxxor 006, with the bb's suspended in crystal clear resin. And, I wanted to include one such figure as an additional exclusive for this year's C2E2 (April 25-27th in Chicago). Thus, following in the neon green footsteps of Cosmic Green Megakeshi Galaxxor comes Galaxxor 013!
Galaxxor 013 is a 5.5" art toy that features 2 points of magnetic articulation (shoulders). The body was sculpted/designed by Ben Spencer and was extensively refined by Marty "The Godbeast" Hansen and Josh Edwards of True Cast Studio. The figure was cast in neon green bb-filled crystal clear resin by the Godbeast. Galaxxor 013 will be $95 each and limited to an edition of 5. The figure will be exclusively available at Nerd City's booth #750 in The Block at C2E2, April 25-27th.
 For an extensive look at many more of the exclusives that will be available at Nerd City's booth, be sure to check out the official Nerd City C2E2 2014 Exclusives mini blog.
Stay tuned for 1 or 2 more C2E2 Exclusive announcements in the upcoming week, including some things that you never even expected...
Hope to see you at C2E2!

Fröstkronna the Cyborg Space Barbarian C2E2 Exclusive from Galaxxor x BigManToys


About once a year, my friend Lee (the mastermind behind BigManToys) and I try to do a collaborative figure. This time around, Lee had the idea to make a figure that was a combination of his iconic Wo-Man figure and my Cyborg Space Barbarian figure, Fröstkron.  If you're going to be at C2E2 this year, you just might have the chance to snag one from Nerd City's booth #750!

Fröstkronna  features a head that was sculpted by Ben Spencer and produced by The Godbeast and a body that was sculpted and produced by Bigman Toys, this deadly resin beauty features articulation at the shoulders and right wrist. She also features rubber cast armor by BigmanToys and was hand painted by Ben Spencer.
Fröstkronna is limited to an edition of 5 and is $75 each.

Lucha Sharks Fintastico C2E2 2014 Exclusive



Once again, from that corner of the Galaxxorverse known as Hive World X-544 comes Fintastico, the mystical magician of The Lucha Sharks! He'll amaze you with his arcane prowess as well as his gleaming, glittery skin! This figure was sculpted and designed by Ben Spencer and fine tuned and produced in resin by Marty "The Godbeast" Hansen at True Cast Studio. Fintastico was also given a brilliant glittery finish and hand painted by Ben Spencer. This figure is limited to an edition of 5 and will never be produced in this colorway ever again. Fintastico features 2 points of articulation and is exclusively available for $75 each at Nerd City's booth (we don't know the #, yet!)  starting on 04.25.14 at C2E2.
It should also be noted that Fintastico will be the last Lucha Shark figure done in this specific sculpt. TGB and I have discussed doing different types of sharks and characters in the line from the very beginning, and this will be the last figure done with the Great White mold.
Fintastico is also part of a great lineup of C2E2 2014 Exclusives at the Nerd City booth. 2014 will see Nerd City hosting an insanely cool lineup of extremely limited exclusives, from resin art figures, to vinyl designer toys, to pvc production figures, to limited edition prints and books. If you are going to be at C2E2, DO NOT MISS NERD CITY'S BOOTH!
If there is any leftover stock following the con, Fintastico will be available in from The Galaxxor Online Store.

Mini Galaxxors and Megakeshi Galaxxor Prototypes Drop 11.19.13

http://galaxxor.bigcartel.com/product/megakeshi-galaxxor-1-1-prototype-in-pink-flesh 
Although things have been relatively quiet, as of late, in the Galaxxorverse, a good bit of stuff has been going on behind the scenes. Thanks mostly in part to my friends The Godbeast and the rest of the gang at True Cast Studio (which I recently had the chance to visit!), the next evolution of Galaxxor is in the works! The original sculpt has been greatly refined (courtesy of the mighty Josh Edwards), and there have been leaps and bounds made, in terms of producing the figures in a keshi-style rubber. As a result, I have a few 1/1 prototype Megakeshi 5.5" Galaxxors (each with 3 interchangeable heads, including one by the mighty Matt Doughty!), as well as a large selection of 2" Mini Galaxxors (sculpted and cast by none other than The Godbeast, himself!). Some of these pieces are suuuuper rare, and you'll have your chance to score them for your very own on 11.19.13 at noon CST.

Each of these Megaksehi Galaxxor prototypes is one of a kind, cast in keshi-style rubber, features 3 points of articulation (head and arms) and includes 3 interchangeable heads. They will be $90 a piece.

Each Mini Galaxxor will be $17 a piece. Swirled colorways will obviously vary in appearance, due to the randomness of the swirled resin. Apologies for the sort of shitty pics of the little dudes, it was my first go at really trying to photograph mini figures.
Be sure to hit up The Galaxxor Online Store at noon on 11.19.13 to score all of this Galaxxorverse goodness!

Grape-Apes: Techno-Barbarian Simian Shamans from Galaxxor x Goodleg Toys x Monster Kolor

https://www.facebook.com/events/596314330391337
I was honored to have been asked by my friend Jessie from Doomkick to participate in his It Came from the Pressure Pot group art show at Monster Kolor Studios. Thematically, the show was fairly open, but the pieces for the show had to feature some paint by the mighty Monster Kolor. Due to the fact that Monster Kolor's metallic purple "Grapeape" color is a personal favorite of mine, I decided to create some pieces entirely themed around it. I decided that I would utilize some disused vintage MOTU bucks, much in the way that I had previously done with my Cyborg Space Barbarians, and reach out to my buddy Luke from Goodleg Toys to cast up some sweet resin ape heads from the vintage knockoff line, Apes Attack. I painted up an edition of 5 for the show, and Luke came up with an awesome bio for the Grape-Apes that puts them square in the middle of his Holo Apes Universe:
"Grape-Apes are guardians of the so called "Prima Materia", the primal essence the whole Universe is made of. This essence is lying hidden deep inside the Forbidden Zone, which no other life form except for the true keepers of the last secrets of the Universe is allowed to enter. Grape-Apes are descendants of the glorious Holo Apes, an advanced warriors caste, protecting the Forbidden Zone against all alien threats. Only the bravest of these Apes might later turn into a Grape Ape, a Techno-Barbarian Simian Shaman, by eventually ingesting a Prima Materia impregnated housel after victorious battle. It is also the Grape-Apes who bring these sacret housels to the battlefields, to distribute them among the warriors. And to potentially turn the purest of them into one of their kind."
Grape-Apes will be available exclusively at It Came from the Pressure Pot, Saturday, November 9th, from 7-10pm at Monster Kolor Studios in Middlesboro, MA. They feature resin ape heads courtesy of Goodleg Toys, articulation at the shoulders and hand painting by Ben Spencer. These will be an edition of 5 and will be $65 each.
Update!
It looks like there were a few left over from the show. They are now available for purchase from the Monster Kolor online store.
