Scott Tolleson Uncle Argh NOIR Kickstarter: full sticker pack revealed

Kickstarter to fund a Tenacious Toys Exclusive Scott Tolleson Uncle Argh NOIR Mini Qee

Images for all 7 stickers in our Sticker Pack rewards have now been revealed!
Backers who have chosen rewards that include Sticker Packs will get a full pack of 7 stickers:
  • (2) full-color stickers featuring artwork by Scott Tolleson
  • (1) 5.5" wide black and white Argyle sticker (artwork by Scott)
  • (1) 3.5" diameter circular Argh Noir face sticker (artwork by Scott)
  • (1) 4" wide Tenacious Toys sticker
  • (2) 4" wide Toy2R stickers

Only backers who've chosen rewards that specifically include the Sticker Pack item will get Scott's full-color stickers. (We have several rewards that include Sticker Packs, including the lowest level reward- just a $5 pledge gets you this sticker pack!)

We will most likely have plenty of black/white stickers left over after those rewards have been shipped, so the rest of the backers (even ones whose rewards don't specifically include stickers) will get stickers in the mail as well.

Thanks to everyone who has pledged thus far- we are now 80% funded! Please share this post with your network- we are so close but every pledge and every dollar counts in the next couple weeks!

Carson Catlin fungusamongus for Playsam 500 show at Super7

 Here is my contribution to the Playsam 500 show at Super7Store in San Francisco on April 28th.
This is the first time I have ever worked with wood, and boy was it fun. I started by sketching out the design and then slowly drilled away with a Dremmel. My goal was to achieve something similar to my cuts pieces but came away with a mushroom looking thingy. That's why its called fungusamongus. I painted the wheels with light green acrylic and finished them with a high gloss lacquer. The body was stained twice and then sanded down to reveal the unstained wood. To finish it and give a it warm gloss I waxed the car a bunch, like for at least three hours.

Josh Mayhem custom Playsam Streamliner for Super7 Playsam 500

Josh Mayhem shares with us a WIP shot of his custom Playsam Streamliner for the Playsam 500 show at the San Francisco Super7 store. Josh always goes way above and beyond with his accessorizing, and this very basic wooden toy is definitely getting a little firepower from the Mayhem Monster Garage! Seriously Josh, I think you should add some more guns!

Did you see Josh's custom Bellicose Bunny? The thing had a laser cannon bigger than the damn bunny!

Chrisosaur resin WOP releases today

 Today Chrisosaur releases his WOPs- his first resin figures!
WOP stands for War On Perfection, a bit of a play on the derogatory term for Italians. 

Release date is today at his online shop: Each WOP stands just under 4" and is hand cast in resin and hand painted.  Will be priced at $40.00 shipped. This is a series of 15 but Chrisosaur is only selling 10 today. 

There will be more colorways to follow (including a Tenacious Toys exclusive!). You can see more pics of his work on Flickr.
