NEW STUFFS!

Heya people.

Thanks for stopping by the blog!  I figure it was due time to do a little updatin' and to take the time to share some info about this coming Friday's releases in the ol' webshopper

So, to begin with, as there are oodles of events approaching, I'll be updating the 'upcomin events' section - of to your right there ---->  Hope to see some of you at Sufes, Nakano or Design Festa!

Now, for this coming Friday there will be a few things on offer, and, as per recently usual, a few surprises.  Here's the skinny:

1) RAMPAGE x SPLURRT Lab Mice - SQUEAKERS!!!  These dudes will come in the usual set of three figures (bagged with edition-stamped header card).  This time around I've got some crazy fun SUPER squishy "Ooze-it Green" or "Gunmetal Lame" figures (La-meh - not lame! - dark silver pigment with a touch of silver and gold glitter)  - each of which is equipped with a squeeky toy insert!  There will be the option for painted or blank sets - clocking in at $40/set either way.  Kind of running a pre-order on these, as I'd like people to choose how they want them.  Have a peek at my instagram for a squeeker video :-)



2) SKULL HEAD BUTT!  I received a box of handpaints from Akamatsu-san.  These will go up in the shop, clocking in around $100-200 each.  Some rad stuff in this box!

 
 
And....
 
 
3)  JOIN THE "UGLY CLUB!!!!"
 
 
It's official!  For those of you who enjoy the Ugly Unicorn, and the other 'cute and ugly' sorts of guys that I produce, here is your chance to get the insider jump on future releases and club exclusive figures!  To start, spaces will be very limited, however, new enrollment will be opened again in the future.  There will be 2 levels of membership, and they'll look something like this:
 
 
Level 1:  Basic "Ugly Club" Membership.  $60 (plus shipping). Includes:
 
-Club initiation "Electric Boogaloo" Ugly Unicorn (pictured below).  This guy will come bagged with screen printed header card.
-Ugly Unicorn Sticker set (2 holographic stickers)
-Silk screened, numbered, signed and stamped Membership card.  This card will grant you dibs and discounts and maybe surprises when shown at future events!
-Enrollment in the "Ugly Club" mailing list - for exclusive releases, dibs on "ugly stuff" and other sorts of fun.
 
 
Level 2: Premier "Ugly Club" Subscription Membership. $250 (plus initial shipping cost).  Includes:
 
-All of the Basic Membership benefits (Initiation UU, Stickers, Membership card, Mailing list enrollment)
-ONE custom (one-of-a-kind) Ugly Unicorn (probably mailed later and separately from the initiation UU)
-3 club exclusive UU's of your choosing (choose any 3 from those offered via the Ugly Club mailing list - at no extra costs for shipping or otherwise).
 
Here's the "Electric Boogaloo" UU for this round of club enrolling awesome people:
 
 

Memberships will first be offered to members of the curent RAMPAGE mailing list, with any remaining spots offered via the webshop on Friday (4/10).  Delivery of the first round of initiation UU's will be sometime in May.

That's all she wrote!  Thanks again for checking in ^_^

Not Dead Yet!

Howdy Folks!

Yeah, well, blogging hasn't been at the top of my priority list for a bit now... oh well.

LOTS going on!  So far, this year, we've seen Superfestival come and go (thanks to all who came out), the 2015 RAMPAGE Lucky Bags sold out to the mailing list prior to public availability, RAMPAGE STUDIOS had a 2-YEAR ANNIVERSARY show, and NOW it's almost time for Winter Wonderfestival!

PARALYZING TOYS - BOOTH 5-5-01

This Wonfes, as in the past 2 years, I'll be at a booth with the whole Paralyzing Toys' crew:  Datadub, Shamrockarrow, Nerdone, Pop Soda and Refreshment Toy!  I'll be painting some PK figures for the Figlab portion of the table (these are going to be pretty!), doing a batch of NERDONE's Gorilla Tank Figure, releasing some tasty Kaibutsu Omake sets (sets of 2 villager Omake that usually accompany the Kesagage figure) and I'll be releasing a BRAND NEW figure in the RAMPAGE Ultra Kaiju Series:  ABORAS!

Aboras was featured along side Banila in Ultraman episode 19.  Banila isn't making an appearance in the series just yet, but that doesn't mean he won't :-P

Here's a shot from the paint studio today:


Also on offer will be a new painted version of my personal favorite Ultra Monster: JAMIRA!  This time around, I went for colors similar to my favorite B-club (Bullmark re-issue series) release:  metallic purple sprays on pinky-flesh vinyl.

 
 
It's uncertain if I'll manage another post here before the event, but keep an eye on Twitter and Instagram!  Ciao!

Hey Folks,

Ok, not long now until NYCC opens up and we can all go nuts over the new and exciting stuff that is surely going to be there!  I've done my best to bring a load of goods to the table this year - most of which is en route to NYC via express mail as I write this.  Fingers crossed all arrives safe and sound!

So, yeah - I've gotten a lot of posts and emails asking about when and how much for the various releases I'll be doing.  Since I will only be able to accept cash, and I want interested collectors to know what they'll need to have on hand, please refer to the below list of releases (including dates and times where applicable), and please try to bring exact change if possible!  So - here's the final list (minus a few bits and bobs):
