Huck Gee – The Grifling King

unnamed (3)

The moment has come! The rise of the Grifling King! Huck Gee has just revealed this behemoth of a custom, which is limited to only 10 pieces. Each figure comes signed, numbered and includes all that you see above. If you are interested, be sure to have $1800 handy and shoot an email over to sales[at]huckgee[dot]com. Act quick! More photos after the jump.

The Griflings are ruled by an otherworldly, magical monarch, the venerable King Arstaak. As wize as he is powerful, his being seems to be woven intimately with the twisted magics that root within the Wildwoods. Very rarely seen, he travels through the magical haze of the wild woods enthroned atop a massive, iridescent beetle. His awe inspiring appearance is said to float somewhere between the physical and animistic planes. Part shadow, part earth, I suspect King Arstaak's bloodline may be a manifestation of the woods themselves. 

Only one creature in the Wildwoods is as worthy of narrative as the compelling King Arstaak: his paramour, the radiant Queen Consort, Perselphone...

Reactor-88’s Custom Corner: JFury

IMG_7140

Welcome to the August edition of Reactor-88's Custom Corner. This month we’re highlighting Justin Phillips, better known as JFury. Justin hails from Central California where he is a professional dog trainer, specializing in aggression and other behavior problems. He has been painting toys for about three and a half years. Before he started customizing toys he had never painted in his life, so he’s learned a lot along the way and is still learning new things each time he paints a new custom. Justin’s style is very cartoon-driven and he’s known for his clean line work and vibrant colors. His three kids are a huge inspiration for his character designs. His wife pushes him and is also his biggest critic- she has no problem telling him when something doesn’t look right. I think she’s doing a good job because Justin comes up with some cool characters with clean, technical execution. He does take commissions, so if you’d like to discuss a project with Justin, he can be emailed at just-n-timedog@live.com. You can also keep up with Justin and his work on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, and the Furious Customs online storeFurious Customs online store.

Voting for all the publicly voted categories is open over at designertoyawards.com and runs through Monday, September 1st (Labor Day).

We’re pleased to have been  nominated for Best Blog and if you’ve enjoyed our coverage for the past 9.5 or so years, we’d be  honored to have your vote.

We all have opinions about awards and nominees, and we’re no different. Rather than comment on each category, we’ll just wonder here out loud (well, sorta…) why Paul Kaiju was not nominated for Artist of the Year ???
