Made for a good friend of mine for her birthday! The Glow Cloud and its child from Welcome to Nightvale, a fantastic show that you can listen to here http://podbay.fm/show/536258179 , though this is tumblr and I highly suspect most people here already know that.
I will be at FanExpo 2014 with Lemoneewonder at table a394, come and say hello!
This is one of the two Rodimus stars I made for myseld and Bittythings to wear at TFcon this past weekend. People kept asking if we won the art contest the whole weekend, it was kind of funny. They handed out stars of their own as prizes, big honking things that you couldn’t wear. Clearly mine are better. I’m so humble, I know.
I’ll probably make some more of these for FanExpo in August. I’ll scale them down a little and make some as keys chains as well.
Celebrating its 15th anniversary, The Iron Giant has reaped praise as being among the greatest animated films ever made (recently ranked #7 on Time Out’s 100 Best Animated Movies list) and it was important for Mondo to honor the film with an appropriately stunning collectible.
The 16” tall figure will have over 30 points of articulation, light features, and other fun surprises! Accompanying The Iron Giant will be a Hogarth figure, scraps of metal for him to munch on and a Seafood sign that has a removable “S” to put on his chest. He will also include an interchangeable head and gun attachment, giving a choice of displaying the figure as the regular version, or the “War” version! The figure was designed from the actual CG files used in the film, for ultimate accuracy.
Mondo hopes to have all the toys up on their redesigned website in August/September, and have them in fans’ hands by Christmas!
Testing out display options for Art in the Park at my friend Lisa’s place! After much trial and error, Lisa’s uncle walked past and solved all my problems with one sentence: “Why don’t you hang them from the cross bars?”
"…Because that would make sense?"
August 4th, Bronte Heritage Park, Oakville! If you have time and $5 come and see me at booth 19. Or don’t. Either way enjoy your holiday!
My uncle is full of wisdom. He hides it in his beard.
'He hides it in his beard' is my new quote of the day.
If I’m honest, I wasn’t expecting Batman: Knight Force Ninjas to be among anyone’s top choices for a creative outlet, but I suppose we all find passion in our own things. Come to think, I did own the Riddler from that line… and I can’t argue that the solid bright green Knight Star Batmobile didn’t stand out on a shelf. (Too bad those kinds of colors stopped seeing their way into Transformers after, like, 1994.)
Another bit that stood out to me: a note in the slideshow that Aaron brainstormed for Micronauts, the Kevin Smith Superman movie, and Saban’s Los Luchadores. The latter, in particular, reminded me that a friend once said the cast of Los Luchadores was at Toy Fair one year, even though the show didn’t have an accompanying toyline. I’d assumed they were at a Bandai booth, but if a Los Luchadores toyline was in consideration at Hasbro… huh. I wouldn’t have expected Saban to branch out with their partnerships, but I guess Kenner did handle the VR Troopers line…
Anyway, the video is a fascinating watch (or listen). I recommend giving it a go!
I was there!
Me too! Great panel, kinda informative, and a lot of things you wouldn’t even think to ask, but are good to know.
