While the wait for the first figure in the Grimsheep series was long, Happy Panda Toys is quickly following up the debut Tiger edition with the new Panda edition.  This one features the  panda head as well as a sheep head of course in a white + black design.  What we are less sure of is whether this one is rocking a Gi or a suit – as both were in the planned lineup. Look for it to drop on 10.1.

Reactor-88 Custom Corner – James Fuller

 Papa-Smurf

Welcome to the September edition of Reactor-88's Custom Corner. This month we’re highlighting James Fuller. James resides in Waseca, Minnesota with his wife and two daughters. There he also runs his namesake design business, FullerDesigns. James has a degree in Visual Communications and has been a graphic designer for over 11 years. He is a huge packaging nut- so he loves making custom boxes for his toys to take them up another notch. Speaking of toys, James started customizing in 2008 and has been doing it full time since 2011. He’s known for his airbrushing and dark comic style. His influences are comic artists such as Jim Lee and Todd McFarlane. He also gets lots of inspiration from fellow toy artists such as Scribe, Rsin and Kevin Gosselin. He says:

“It’s not just that they create amazing art… a lot of people do. It’s the way they are always helping other artists or giving words of wisdom. I truly respect that.”

Last year, James started getting into molding and casting. He created a small resin base figure called the “Lil’ Jammie” and is looking forward to expanding the line. James is currently working on a 6-inch resin figure that he will be releasing in October featuring his signature character “Grrr…” On top of that he’s moving towards making more masks and monster fabrication, as well as getting involved with 3D printing. James does take commissions, so you can contact him and follow his work at all the usual places: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, the Fuller Designs website & blog, as well as his online store.
