002 002 002 002 002 002 002 002 002

Here is the final design for the Galaxxor 002 colorway. He's cast in crystal clear, uv-glow resin by The Godbeast, and features fluorescent orange hand painted detailing by me.
Better pics and release date info coming soon. We're probably still looking at an early 2011 drop.
Also, if you haven't checked it out yet, be sure to read this article by Michael Moreci about art toys, featuring interviews with Shawn Smith and yours truly.

Electric Boogaloo

Here's a quick work in progress pic of the Galaxxor 002 colorway. I'm very pleased with this design thus far and very much looking forward to seeing how it eventually turns out!
By the way, congrats to everyone who scored a Galaxxor 001. It sold out in just under 20 hours! All 5 of them should be either in their new homes, or in the final leg of their intergalactic journey and popping up any day now.
It all depends on how busy I end up being during the holidays, but I'm guessing that the Galaxxor 002's will see an early 2011 release. Stay tuned!

Galaxxor 001 Drops 11.11.10 @ 1pm CST

From the blazing heart of the blue star Anubis 5 comes Galaxxor 001, Monster Hunter Robo! This classic 5.5" action figure-style resin art toy was sculpted by Ben Spencer, hand cast in black light reactive translucent cyan resin by The Godbeast and hand painted by Ben Spencer. Galaxxor 001 features 2 points of articulation. Galaxxor 001 comes packed in a traditional bag and header style with exclusive header card art by Steve Seeley. This figure is limited to an edition of 5 and will never be produced in this colorway ever again.

Galaxxor 001 will be available for $90 each on 11.11.10 at 1 pm CST, exclusively from The Galaxxor Online Store.
I do also intend to get some good images of the finished 001 glowing under a black light. I should have some posted in the next few days.
Extra special thanks to the gang at Shawnimals for their help with these super awesome pics!

Header Card Back Art by Steve Seeley

Here we have the header card back for the first few Galaxxors. Once again, an outstandingly badass piece of art by Mr. Steve Seeley, this image features Galaxxor doing what he does best- fighting monsters!
If you're wondering on the status of the drop of the Galaxxor 001's, my best guestimate would be early November. Painting is going really well and I should have some high quality images of the finished Galaxxor 001 colorway up next week, along with an official release date.
For even more art from the Steve Seeley, please be sure to check out his official site here.

Galaxxor 001 Paint WIP

I'm not entirely sure how interested anyone is in seeing this, but I wanted to get up an image to show that I have begun the painting of the Galaxxor 001's. Shown here are just the base colors. I have a bit of detailing that I plan to do in other colors, but probably won't be showing any of that until I have the final, polished product to show. At that time, I will give concrete details of the price, date and time of the sale of the 5 Galaxxor 001's in the Galaxxor Online Store.

Final Galaxxor 001 Transmission from The Godbeast

Before shipping off the unpainted Galaxxor 001's to me, The Godbeast snapped these sweet pics of them and posted them to his blog. They are seen here with the white prototype sculpt, a gray resin prototype (just in case Galaxxor decides to go vinyl), and the awesome Mammoth Monster figure, designed by TGB's son, MJ.
The Galaxxor 001's should be showing up on my doorstep any day now, and I can't wait to get up some WIP painting images up of them asap. I'm still aiming for a OCtober sale date for the 001's through The Galaxxor Online Store.
Stay tuned. Things are just starting to get interesting!

Unpainted Cyan Galaxxors in Blacklight

Courtesy of The Godbeast, we have these awesome pics of three of the unpainted Galaxxor 001 figures (in translucent cyan resin) glowing under a blacklight. So yeah, to add to the awesomeness, the pieces in this first run will feature a uv reactive glow feature. For even more photos of these guys in all ov their glowing glory, check out the "Galaxxor" set over on Nerd City's Flickr.

In other news, I am very happy to announce that Steve Seeley has agreed to handle the header card art duties for Galaxxor. This is super cool, because Steve's not only a great guy, but also one of my favorite artists! Check out Steve's site here.
Finally, I've been getting a lot of questions regarding how and when Galaxxor 001 will be available for purchase. Please stay tuned to this blog, as I will give you plenty of forewarning here. This will also be the actual place to order the toy when it finally does go on sale. The initial edition of 5 should drop in October some time. But yeah, keep an eye on the blog for more details/developments!

A Few More Pics of the Prototype

Kirby did such a great job of photographing the Galaxxor prototype that I felt I should post a few more pics. It also provides me with the chance to show it from a few additional angles, as well.
I did speak to The Godbeast this past weekend and the mold creation process is probably underway right now. So, it shouldn't be too long before we start to see images of the first resin figures.

Galaxxor is Coming

Yes. Galaxxor is, in fact, coming. After approx 8 months of trying to figure out how to sculpt, sculpting, sanding, painting, sanding, rethinking, sanding, sculpting and painting, the prototype for Galaxxor is as complete as it's going to be and on its way to my man, Marty Hansen, aka The Godbeast. Marty is going to be using his second to none skills to clone this guy into some very limited editions of resin figures that I will then hand paint and unleash upon the world.

This blog, along with, will be the center of the Galaxxor Universe, and will therefore be the best place to keep up to date on our progress with the project and how to get your hands on a Galaxxor of your very own.

So please stay tuned. I'm certainly learning as I go with this one, but it should be a lot of fun. Any and all input and/or advice is greatly appreciated.

Big thanks to Kirby from Rotofugi for the badass photos!
