New pieces from DAVEMARKART

You can buy pieces by DAVEMARKART at his new web store and follow him on Facebook.

"HOPEFUL HEART" (at left) with balloon stands 8.5" tall.

This custom vinyl toy was created using super sculpey, acrylics, wire, and Dave's creative mind... the figure has a matte finish, the eyes and balloon have a gloss finish.

"EMPTY AS A HOLLOW TREE" (below) is a 4.5"tall custom using super sculpey and acrylics.
It has not been mounted to base in case the buyer wishes to display without base.

 At bottom is "THE LOVE BUNNY" which is a 3" custom dunny made from super sculpey and acrylics. It has a matte finish and the eyes have a high gloss finish.

Look out for an exclusive custom series by Dave which we will be selling at Tenacious Toys!

Creo Design x Ziqi Qiqi colorways revealed

On the back of the massive response from the first Ziqi x Creo Design - QiQi teaser poster earlier this month, Scottish Designer Art Toy Producer Creo Design is proud to present a new QiQi teaser poster for fans to drool over.

QiQi, created by Singapore based artist ZIQI - will come in 3 cool colourways: Original Red, Metallic Black and Metallic Red. QiQi will be 3'' high and will have articulation in his head and arms! This first series is very limited and due to be released in Q1 2012. We also have plans for a further limited edition release in Q2/Q3 of a very limited batch of QiQi toys, details will be announced nearer the release date.

We hope that fans are excited to almost see the full shape of QiQi and we hope to bring further details on prices and release dates soon.

More information on ZIQI and QiQi can be found here.

Jon-Paul Kaiser Captain Sturnbrau black & white in stock

We're always extra-excited when a friend of the shop has a production toy released! In this case, British artist Jon-Paul Kaiser has been working with Toy2R on this original sculpt called Captain Sturnbrau. We hosted JPK for a signing at the NYCC booth we split with Toy2R last year. Our booth was the spot where this Sturnbrau piece was revealed for the first time. Captain Sturnbrau is the salty captain of the Whispering Corsair, commanding Nathaniel Vigo (his First Mate) as well as Olaf the Mute, both of which are also production Qees made by Toy2R.

If you've been eying up the JPK customs in our shop, but they're a little more than you want to spend right now, you can get the next best thing: a production toy with the same clean and detailed black & white paint work which JPK has become known for. Toy2R did a bang-up job on these pieces.

Captain Sturnbrau is in stock now- you can buy yours here.

If you wanna follow JPK, he's very active on Twitter. Go tell him you think he's awesome.

Stego-Clone custom Medicom Clonetrooper by Mostly Harmless

Mostly Harmless sends us images of his Stego-Clone custom figure, which looks to me like really solid custom work. Detailed sculpting and tight painting make for great pieces, in my opinion.

I have attached pictures of a recent custom for a "Star Wars vs Dinosaurs" art gallery. The only requirements for the show were to incorporate both subjects in your piece. I made the Stego-Clone out of a Medicom VCD Clonetrooper, dollar store stegosaurus, and sculpt. He was quite a hit and I feel he would be a unique addition to your blogs, etc. I have also included a link to my Facebook fanpage where I have pics of several other customs.
