Los Angeles-based artisan plush crafter Steff Bomb has announced that she had signed a “toy deal” with USAopoly - specifically with their newly launched “Project Raygun” division.
"This new partnership will take Steff’s creations out of art galleries and television series— like TLC’s Craft Wars— and put high end, soft prop plush collectibles into the hands of collectors, cosplayers, craft enthusiasts, and pop culture fans alike.
Steff will be working to bring the legendary Gjallarhorn rocket launcher—from Bungie’s Destiny—to market in late 2017, for all the loot-‐obsessed Guardians (as the players of the game are known) out there.
Of course, it’s not all about the explosions. Project Raygun’s line of soft prop collectibles will include Steff’s designs for properties like Adventure Time, Game of Thrones, John Carpenter’s The Thing, and more.
If Valyrian Steel seems a bit harsh, collectors might consider a softer cut—Steff’s version of the Catspaw Blade from HBO’s Game of Thrones looks killer, but has plush filler. Cartoon Network fans will no doubt enjoy chilling out with an Adventure Time plush modeled after Marceline’s Bass. Or, if you want to heat things up, why not curl up next to a plush Flamethrower from John Carpenter’s The Thing?
Steff Bomb and Project Raygun are just getting started. The line will be available for purchase online at ProjectRaygun.com in Fall 2017." (Full Press Announcement on usaopoly.com)
"I've spent the last 8 months secretly developing my first toy line, which will all be officially licensed pop culture toys. I've already made the prototypes for some Adventure Time toys, John Carpenter's the Thing, Game of Thrones, Nintendo, and more. The prototypes were on display at a Toy Fair in NY this past weekend. I can't wait to show you everything. I've been working non-stop, way more than usual. I totally went hermit-crazy but it's all been so worth it. Minus the country falling apart around us, I am the happiest person in the world. This is my everything. This is it. I did it and I'm so proud of myself and I can't wait to make the best stuff I've ever made." (shared Steff Bomb on Facebook)
