My friend John, over at Dollar Slice Bootlegs has been making some amazing stuff over the past couple ov years. He's a truly talented artist with a mind for the absurd and an eye for design. At one point, a while back, we came up with the idea of doing a collab. At the time, he had just dropped Mr. Ca$h Grab, a resin mashup figure sporting a Macross Valkyrie/Jetfire head. Of course, me being me, I was like, "Hey, let's put that thing on a vintage MOTU barbarian buck!"
Around the same time, I was discussing with my man Brandon over at ManOrMonster? Studios, his method for a very reflective silver (nearly chrome!) finish that he was getting. Ideas started rumbling around in my brain. ROM the Spaceknight snuck in there. And then, one night, I had a dream about a character named "Starjack". It all just sort of fell together.
Once the greatest robot hero of a far off dimension from an alternative timeline, The Mighty Starjack fell from grace and descended into madness. He found himself stranded on a primitive planet, occupied almost entirely by giant reptilian beasts and man eating plants. Over the centuries, Starjack changed, evolved. He took on a far more barbaric form, and over time rose to dominance over the beasts of his strange new home.
In the dimension shattering swirl of the Cosmic Supernova, Starjack found himself plucked from his own timeline and thrown directly into the heart of the Galaxxorverse.
Mentally revived, and more physically powerful than ever, the Mighty Starjack stood beside Galaxxor 015 in the battle against Gorgax and his evil forces.
Starjack is a 5.5" custom art figure that features 2 points of articulation (arms). The head was cast in resin by Dollar Slice Bootlegs and the body is a restored vintage MOTU barbarian buck. Painting duties were handled by Ben Spencer.
Starjack comes in a bag and header packaging, is limited to an edition of 5, and will be $75, each. The figure will be exclusively available at Nerd City's booth #1003 at Designer Con, November 21st and 22nd.That may just be it for the Designer Con announcements.
Or is it?
