A Joss Whedon Art Tribute @ G1988 (West) - Opening Sept 5th

G1988 EVENT PRESS: "A show almost 2 years in the making, this Friday night at G1988 (West), artists will debut pieces inspired by the movies and TV shows of writer/director Joss Whedon. When Whedon explained he hoped Gallery1988 would one day tribute his work with an art show during his Comic Con Q&A one year, we jumped at the possibility. With the blessing of Whedon, it will all come to a head this weekend, when we open the show with an opening reception from 7-10 PM. Make sure to join and check the incredible artwork honoring an incredible creator."
Shown here are artwork previews from Bruce Yan (above-left), Andrew Heath (above-right), 100% Soft and Andrew Scaife (both below). Can you name all the movies and visual reference? :)

The Niello Ji Ja from Mr Clement

"The Niello Ji Ja is inspired by the statuettes in Montorio. I am a sculptor and a painter too, that's why I like playing with colour and texture so much. I had been waiting for the right time to transform Ji Ja bird in a much more classical and funny way. Finally....This piece is born!" -shared Mr Clement.
Sized 8.2cm X 4.5cm X 4cm - The Niello Ji Ja is limited to 30pcs each priced at £35 each (+ World-wide Free shipping). Finished in Metallic and black, expect a ship date scheduled for the middle of September 2014.

"The Bad Knight" by Peter Kato On Sale Sept 4th


"The Bad Knight is a destructive robot inspired by of course the
legend of the Black Knight who shows up as this special villain
heroes have to deal with in many fairytales and fantasy stories."

"The Bad Knight" is a new original sculpt from Peter Kato and will see an edition of 8 pieces for this resin cast & hand painted metallic grey go on sale this Thursday September 4th via peterkatoshop.com at 9pm Eastern time. Standing 3.5 inches tall, they will be [roiced at US$40 each, and will come packaged in their own individual box.


"Made from 7 separate parts it is my most complicated sculpt to date and actually I had been working on this design since 2010. It was supposed to be a follow up figure to my Ninja-Robo resin figure. I wasn’t able to sculpt it the way I(had) wanted to so I scrapped the project until earlier this year when I learned some new techniques in digital sculpting (I’m studying all the time about sculpting and 3D programs, learning something new bit by bit)." -shared Peter.
As well Peter is also making available his Ninja-Robo figures for US$25 each, resin cast 3 inch figure - "as they were meant to be this series of evil robots inspired by the worlds history of warriors/combatants." -added Peter.

Bad News Dunny Cub from Mishka?


Thanks to reader "John D." we get a headsup of vector graphics for a 3" Dunny named "Bad News Dunny Cub" from Mishka (on AllVinyls.com), featuring a "sculpted body, not flocked". Apparently there is also an 8" version of this figure, named the "Kodiak Edition". And while I cannot authenticate the legitimacy of this nor am I responsible for it, the piece is scheduled to be released in 2014 from Kidrobot.

I am really liking this piece, and reminds me of the irreverence of the Keep Watch Labbit (which I personally adore) and here's hoping this is indeed an actual release, and soon!

A Peek at What Daniel Yu Might Have For #STGCC 2014


And so Daniel Yu was booth-ing Saturday night at The Local People Night Market @ the Singapore Art Museum, where his display was a preview of toy-goodness to be had at his STGCC-booth AA90, for next weekend's Singapore Toy Games & Comic Con (Sept 6-7, 2014). Featuring Foot Clan soldiers, "Metal Heads" and "R.Mortis" - all self-sculpted and self-casted resin figurines enough to make my head explode and wallet crying out for a reprieve … you should too.

Painting Up "Killer Donuts" by Angry Woebots x FLABSLAB


Aaron Woebots Martin is in town, and he is seen here painting up KILLER DONUTS at the FLABSLAB offices! I think "ADORABLE" does not even begin to describe this beast of a resin collectible - easily the best looking piece from Woebots, paws down! This is the "Paint Test One", and you can look for the series of 50 x hand-painted pieces at the coming Singapore Toy Games & Comic Con (Sept 6-7, 2014) via Booth E22. The ?Donut Crown" pushes the adorable level to the top of the toy-food chain! LOL
"…To those who want to know the story behind the Donut look up Jdilla Donuts. One my all time favorite HipHop producers. Most my homies know but been getting messages about it from a lot of peeps who don't, time to educate. Aloha! #jdilladonuts" -IG'd Aaron.
