Super7 Pink Prowler Casket Cruiser drops April 5th

Haunting the night where he really shines, Rose Vampire is back in action in his brand new ride, the Pink Prowler Casket Cruiser. Too fast to catch, don't blink or all you'll be seeing is the dust settling. Josh Herbolsheimer's Casket Cruiser is cast in Pink GID vinyl with White, Red, Yellow and Blue sprays. $65 each.
Casket Cruiser will be available this Thursday, April 5th at Noon Pacific at the Super7 Store.

Instagram Mascot by JC Rivera

A little while back, JC Rivera came up with this striking character based on the Instagram logo. He's already shown it to the people at Instagram and received their support, so he obtained the legal permissions necessary to develop this idea further.
JC enlisted the help of Scott Wetterschneider of www.shinbonecreative.com who digitally sculpted this figure, and now comes the difficult part: what's the next step in this project? Well, we'll all have to wait and see what JC decides, but I am assisting him in any way I can to help bring this project to fruition. What do you guys think? The next Andrew Bell Android?

2 custom toy raffles for Waking Wally Street (Rocketboy Customs)

 In promotion for the launch of the comic book Waking Wally Street #1, there will be two raffles: one for a customized Dunny & one for a customized Mini Munny.

The Prizes consist of Spudz (dog dunny) and Jack Henderson (mini munny).  Both characters appear in the first issue of Waking Wally Street and are hand-painted & sculpted by Ryan McClure (Rocketboy Customs).

To qualify for the raffle to win the Spudz (dog dunny), preorder an issue of Waking Wally Street at: http://rocketboycustoms.bigcartel.com/product/waking-wally-street-issue-1

Once you place an order, your name will automatically go into the raffle and the winner will be drawn at random. If you order more than one comic, your chances of winning increase! The winner will be announced once the shipment of comics arrive from the printers (projected first week of April).

Black & White Mini Munny custom by Reddprime

 This sick Mini Munny custom by Reddprime stands nearly 8 inches tall (yep, that's a lot of sculpting and construction work in there- the little Mini Munny is twice as tall as when he started). 

Black & White is the villain from from  Ro-dunny series, a rebuilt cyborg. Unfortunately they forgot to replace his heart so he lands up defending that which he destroys... either that or he just likes fire alot.

Reddprime (aka Mitch) is a talented artist from South Africa... you can follow him on Twitter here. You can purchase this custom here.

Damaged Goods custom TYO Truck by TaskOne

 This is a TYO Truck (TYO stands for "tag your own") customized by legendary artist TaskOne

This, for me, is like the ultimate collectible: my collecting started young, probably at age 2 or 3, with Matchbox and Hot Wheels cars. I had a huge collection. Eventually I moved on to 1:24 and 1:18 scale cars by Maisto, Burago, etc, and then onto building my own models cars and, when I was a teenager, building and racing R/C cars. Now that I'm into designer toys and artwork, it seems that my collecting has gone in a different direction than when I was little... until now. 

TYO Toys brings everything full circle for me- I can collect my little vehicles AND original art by the artists I love, at the same time!

This piece is nuts: Task ripped the thing open, jammed his 3D tag in there, painted and weathered the body of the truck... just really sick work. To follow TaskOne, check the following links:

To buy your own DIY vehicles from TYO, click here. There's a ton of cool stuff they offer: police cruisers, trailers and trucks of all sizes. 

Anyone who buys and tags the crap out of a TYO Police Cruiser, I will trade for $100 worth of brand new designer toys. Just sayin. Email me.
