Joe Ledbetter — Wolfgang Incoming!

Wolfgang_PIC_WEB2b_1

Joe Ledbetter has been teasing his new figure and we’ve been wondering if he’s been moving parts around in the seemingly jumbled photos—things didn’t just seem to connect.  With this exclusive first look—thanks Joe!—we now know why the teasers seemed odd. Wolfgang is completely over the top! 

Building on JLed’s prior adventuresome poses, his frenetic wolf pushes 3D to the edge.  Eyes bulging out of the sockets, smoke out of the ears, skull exploding out of his skull, the brain reaching even greater heights—absolutely bonkers.  Oh yes, there’s also that ginormous tongue which cleverly acts as the third point of support. This self-described homage to Tex Avery and Big Daddy Roth was brought to life by Dave Bondi and a talented team of digital sculptors.  Bondi guided Wolfgang down the stretch with the critical final sculpt.

Joe is producing Wolfgang in conjunction with Bigshot Toyworks as a 10.5” resin figure in the standard blue edition seen here as well as Mono and Lava editions. The edition size for the standard colorway will be between 100-150 pieces.  Pricing has yet to be finalized, but will be announced shortly.

When?  Pre-orders will be taken this weekend at JLed’s DCon booth [#2211] and from his online store.  Be sure to drop by the booth to drool (errr ‘view’) over the painted Wolfgang proto.  Hit the jump for an entire preview gallery.

Andrew Bell — Larry Lactose Toys + Lacto’s at DesignerCon

download

Just when we thought it was safe to dive back into a bowl of morning cereal, Andrew Bell has given us the best reason yet to ponder our food choices. He’ll be releasing his Larry Lactose resins in both regular and vintage finishes at DesignerCon. The 6” figures come with magnetic crowns. Ten of these fun figures  will be at the show, presumably of each edition.

The new toys complete—an assumption, Andrew is sneaky—a fun, in-jest collection that started with the Lacto’s pin that comes in an elaborate faux cereal box.  While the project has stirred up some commotion, the products are his artistic reaction to current events in the toy world and as he’s said his own lactose intolerance.   Get all your Lacto’s merch at his booth [#108].  Next time you go grocery shopping, remember O-No Foods, makers of the very worst eats.
