Sneak Peek: Travis Louie’s ‘Ghostly Stan’ Skelve

Coming soon from Travis Louie and Circus Posterus is ‘Ghostly Stan’, a new production Skelve inspired by one if his characters. Standing at 9 inches and looking delightfully creepy with his bowler hat and glass cyclops eye (took CP a year to perfect), he also has removable slippers. Production colourway is a white,...

CP’s Boo! Skelve, Unripe Bubblegut and Red Death Mini Masao for SDCC

Here comes trouble — Circus Posterus‘ Boo, Unripe Bubblegut and Red Death Masao Mini are out to terrorize the Super7 and Dragatomi booths at SDCC next month! Each is an edition of 66 and will be available in very limited quantities, so don’t wait on these! KO & BP’s Boo! and Chris Ryniak’s Bubblegut will be partying at Super7 while Red Death...

Recap: Phantasmagoria Yves Laroche Montreal 10/27

Last Wednesday (Oct. 27th) I had the pleasure of hopping a train to Montreal and attending Yves Laroche’s ‘Phantasmagoria’ — a group exhibition showcasing new works from Kathie Olivas, Brandt Peters, Travis Louie and Chet Zar. I doubt this needs mention, but there are currently more freaks haunting that gallery’s walls than any travelling circus could boast....

Review: MeSmithy’s 7″ Moogle Munny!

A couple months ago, nerd culture super site Albotas had an article about Megan Smithyman’s (aka MeSmithy) mega munny Moogle custom. As a farewell present from her American Dad co-workers, they gave her the monstrous DIY figure to do with however she fancied. (Note: Megan Smithyman is a geek. She goes to...

Kathie Olivas ’4-Legged Purple Masao’ for ‘Sweet & Sorrow’ 7/1

Bandaged, buck-toothed and dingy, Kathie Olivas‘ 4-Legged Purple Masao looks like the type of cat you’d see lazing about in the window at Stranger Factory, watching curiously as you venture through the big red door as it fusses with its spotted onesie. The newest custom revealed for KO’s solo show, Sweet &...

More Spookies from CMR for Le Carnaval, 9.13

Let’s keep the Carnaval caravan rolling, shall we? Next up: two ghostly little guys from Chris Ryniak — an original sculpt up top (this one KILLS me, SO cute) and a grey Bubblegut perched in a cubby below. I’m not sure if it’s the Instagram filter or the paint Chris used,...

Ultra Squid Girl Makes Her Resin Debut @ Le Carnaval, 9.13

Oh hot damn, remember these two?! Kathie and Brandt’s Ultra Squid Girl figure made its debut as a prototype at the Super7 booth during SDCC 2011. Now, this probably goes without saying, but this is a very complicated sculpt and production on the vinyl edition is still up in the air, but the GOOD NEWS...

Doktor A’s Bella Delamere from Arts Unknown

Now this is production vinyl at its finest: new from Doktor A and Arts Unknown is Bella Delamere (OG edition), an 8-inch Victorian steampunk bombshell due for release this Fall/Winter. Just look at her: curled copper ‘do, wind-up key, dagger, tentacles … look at the pinstripes and ruffles in the dress. Are you...

Doktor A _ FERG Suck It Up @ DCon!

DesignerCon is only three months away. Can you freaking believe that?! This year is just zooming by and already the Con exclusives are starting to trickle in. Kicking things off is none other than DCon’s favourite personality, The Sucklord, who’s hosting The Super Suck Up!, a custom show of sorts at the DKE...
