Skydiver McGuire Release with Martellus Bennett at Rotofugi (7.1)

unnamed
Rotofugi will host NFL Tight End Martellus Bennett for a release, signing and Q & A for his new Skydiver McGuire figure (10”) on Saturday (7.1) from 11 – 1 PM CDT.  Bennet’s first vinyl figure is of an alter ego secret agent character and captures his experience of ‘jumping in’ to the world of art and creativity.  Available in five colorways limited to 100 pieces each ($165), the figure features a stylish sculpt with fun details including a streamlined jumpsuit, slick goggles with fun bandana style strap, super swanky parachute, and teched out shoes.  At first I thought the goggles might be removable since it appeared they were positioned above the ‘eyes’ – turns out those are side burns – check the box shot.  If you can’t make the event, the figures are also available directly from the artist’s web shop.

Marsham Toy Hour S2 E11 & E12

unnamedunnamed (1)

We've got another two episodes of Marsham Toy Hour to share with you! Last weeks episode was another collectors episode with special guest Katherine Park, who in combination with Theresa, put the "cute" counter meter through the roof. They discuss how Katherine got in the scene, as well as all she's done within the scene, such as being a part of Broke Piggy and collaborating with Andrew Bell on an Android figure.

 

This weeks episode of Marsham Toy Hour brings Nick Curtis of CoArt Magazine. Nick drops tons of knowledge on the toy scene. He discusses the origin of the Term "Urban Vinyl" and where the movement has lead us. He chats about CoArt and his honest reviews on toys. So much was discussed, that we hope they have a second round, since we feel they've only scratched the surface.

Brent Nolasco – Insecticide First Look

P1050952

Brent Nolasco—one of the hardest working artists in the art toy world—has shared the first pics of his upcoming Insecticide figure. The detailed winged-bug character is a “rebirth” of Brent’s previously released figure, The Eliminator. The second coming features a wicked new fly-like head, wings, and new pincerish feet.  The newest member of the Dark Descendents line will debut with a painted edition next week cast by Taskone.

With each new figure, we learn a bit more of the back story.  Described by Brent as a hope for the future amid the coming of Doomsday, Insecticide is apparently one of the good guys.  Don’t judge him by his name!
