SNEAK PEEK: Matt Anderson 16-inch Chocolate Qeester Bunee

So it took me a few months but I finally acquired the 16" Bunee Qees Matt Anderson wanted to buy (sorry Matt!). Naturally I was expecting him to turn one into an electronic barbarian Bunee that lights up and rotates wildly and throws things at people. 

But Matt loves to keep people on their toes, so he decided to turn the first 16" Bunee into a giant chocolate Easter Bunny, err... Chocolate Qeester Bunee
Satiny milk chocolate finish, creepy evil stare. Yup, it's awesome!  I feel like this little guy is a little pissed off that someone was nibbling on his ear. Can't wait to see this one in person.

FYI in October Matt Anderson will be signing at our NYCC booth alongside Rsin. A signing you won't wanna miss... The Cultyard is where it's at! For us art toys freaks, that is.

SouthernDrawl JAWS vs PAW custom

Talented and humble customizer SouthernDrawl shares with us this ridiculous custom based on the Coarse Toys PAW figure, easily one of my favorite sculpts! SD does it up right, with weathering, rivets and detailed sculpting which makes other customizers drool... and that's the highest compliment possible! Here's what SD had to say about this piece:

This piece was a commission. I love the dynamic movement of the PAW figure but I was never really sold on the bunny head so I did the only thing a customizer could do, i decapitated it. And it sat headless for a while until I realized that I could reuse the head. and who better to kill a bunny than an apex predator? And so I bulked up the figure even further to accentuate the leg and back musculature. and I added joints- elbow joints, wrist joint, etc. I tried to continue the flow of the figure by adding a curved tail which also helps as a counterweight to the head. With regard to my painting technique, the short answer is sponge painting (I"m giving away the my secret jutsu there LOL). My favorite thing about this piece is that it's inspiring me to do more original sculpting even if it's still customizing on a platform.
