G.I. JONEZ custom by Josh Mayhem for Munky King show

Josh Mayhem made this custom for the "Memories Are Made of These" show (this past Saturday @Munky King).

Josh Mayhem:
Since the theme for this show is based on childhood memories the
first, and obvious thing that popped into my head was to create a
piece paying homage to my favorite toy growing up - G.I. Joes. In fact
I cherished my G.I. Joes so much that I still have about 200 of them
on display right along side my designer toys. It is from this
collection that you'll find weapons and accessories adorned on nearly
every custom toy I do. G.I. Jonez is decorated with 100% G.I. Joe
weapons and accessories from both the 1/16th and 4 inch versions. I
really enjoyed creating this piece because my action figures have
always been a huge inspiration for my custom toy art. I can think of
no better way of showing my respect to the art of both action figures
and designer toys by combining a Munny, one of the most popular
platform toys, and G.I. Joes, one of the most popular action figures.

Josh is open for commissions and you can contact him through his Facebook. Awesome work Josh!

With all these new changes it's no surprise that the popular Squid Kids Ink 10-Doh! has been shrunk down and repackaged, Introducing Mini 10-Doh! Series 1 by Squid Kids Ink- these 3.5 inch little buddies will bring back big memories for anyone that grew up playing classic video games.

The series has16 designs from artists such as Andrew Wilson, Doktor A, Jerome Lu, Jesse Hernandez, Frank Kozik, Kwestone, Luke Chueh, Matt JOnes, Nakanari, Nate Mitchell, Scott Tolleson and Tracy Tubera.
