Jon-Paul Kaiser x J*RYU – Dauntless at Woot Bear (4.1)

Dauntless Logo_norm

Fresh off their sharp Skullhead Samurai custom collaboration, Jon-Paul Kaiser and J*RYU will present a brand-new collaborative project, Dauntless, at Woot Bear this Saturday (4.1).  There isn’t much to go on in the way of details, but both the flier and the press release described the project as a “tale”, so perhaps we’re looking a book, illustrated story or media-style endeavor?  Or perhaps “tale” refers to an overarching story that ties multiple works together.  At any rate, color us very curious.

Preview: Skullhead Samurai Show (3.24)

17267711_1302393859850348_8977050087561625600_n


Pobber will present the Skullhead Samurai Custom Show (official show page) featuring the Jon-Paul Kaiser x Huck Gee figure at Flabslab in Singapore on Friday (3.24) at 7 PM – so in a few hours.  From the numerous previous we’ve seen so far, this one is set to be an impressive show with high quality work throughout.  The artists seem to have really enjoyed customizing the toy, and who can blame ‘em ? Samurais rule.  From different treatments on the armor to different character faces, there’s plenty of design room while still keeping the sculpt largely intact.

While there are many highlight pieces, we’re really enjoying the JPK x J*RYU collab, I Revere our Ancestor’s Strength/Through Them I Smite Our Enemies diorama style 2-figure piece featuring JRYU’s custom Samurai, with signature JPK paint.

The artist roster includes: 13 Art, 2Petalrose, Banana Virus, Brent Nolasco, Cacooca, Candie Bolton, Caramelaw, Carson Catlin, Egg Fiasco, Fakir, Flabslab, Frank Montano, HX Studio, Ink Visuals, J*RYU, Jan Calleja, Jenn & Tony Bot, Jon-Paul Kaiser, Josh Mayhem, KumKum, Le Kuo, Quiccs, Richard Page, RXSeven, Scott Tolleson, Shonside, Trigger Desigm, twelveDot, Watchparts and Wetworks.
