Samara from The Ring Munny custom by Fuller

Fuller sends us these images of his sick 4-inch Mini Munny custom: Samara is the creepy character that crawls out of the well, and the TV, in the horror flick The Ring. Definitely one of my favorite scary movies! You can buy Samara from Fuller's web store here. This 4-inch custom is painted with airbrush paints and acrylics.

The Camo Project: TYO Toys The Camo Project Book & Matchbox Van

Pairing wildlife illustrations with camouflage patterns, NYC illustrator Victor "Vickipages" Roman creates The Camo Project: a self-published book series that is inspiring a fashion and artistic movement in New York City and gaining support among his urban art world friends and like-minded fans. The recently released volume 2 focuses on bird species, providing field-guide information for each feathered illustration and insight on the creature's use of natural disguise,  as well as the history of its man-made camouflage backdrop.

The limited edition TYO x The Camo Project Van commemorates the book series and artistic following with the 1:64 scale diecast Matchbox van. 

While supplies last, each van comes with 1 of 3 buttons. If you find the silver button, you win a  'Camo Project x TYO Print' signed by Vicki Pages. 

TYO stands for "Tag Your Own". TYO Toys sells a number of different blank white vehicles in a variety of sizes that you can buy and tag up without getting arrested. Cool idea.

New customs by Dave Webb: Minion, Batman, Robin, Pinhead and more

Recently artist Dave "Davemarkart" Webb transitioned from creating tentacled, toothy monsters to doing TV/movie characters. This one is Minion from the movie "Despicable Me". Above is a WIP shot of a piece by Dave which is, frankly, from several weeks ago. Still, as I play catch-up after our custom show, I wanted to post about the stuff that my artists friends have been working on. A while back Dave bought a truckload of Androids from us and this is the type of piece he has been working on lately. Cool stuff! Check out his Facebook page for images of a Batman and Robin set, Pinhead, and some sick, toothy Munkos.

NINO 3-inch resin toy by Andrea Mancuso

Not much info available on this one but here's what I have: NINO is made of resin and measures 3.1 inches tall. This figure is made by Andrea Mancuso who is from Genoa, Italy. More pics on Andrea's Behance page. I always love seeing new resin pieces. Apparently this one will be available at toy shops soon.
