DeeTen made this excellent piece for the upcoming "Two-Faced show" in October.
expedition into the parallel world in 1886 discovered a world where
clockwork and steam power were perfected into highly sophisticated
technologies. Along their trip they saw many mechanical marvels; a
floating city, massive airships, as well as mechanical people! Lottie
was a girl saved from an early grave by the modern day technology of
her time and dimension. The notes in the expedition claim she was a very
kind and adventurous soul, always testing the limits of her metal body.
They even noted her strange habit of chewing on pocket watches, which
they claimed were like biscuits to her. Being an
explorer herself she wanted to join our 1886 expedition on their return
from her parallel universe. Little did we know when the hole between the
universes was closed, all of our gifts from the people, artifacts, and
technology ceased to function. Lottie remains frozen and non functional exactly how she was when the portal closed in 1886."

idea for the Resin is King blind box series was born out of an interest
in artisanal resin collectibles. Brian Ahlbeck (Dead Hand Toys) and I
decided last year that we wanted to shine a light on the top-level
craftsmanship and creativity of resin figures and the artists that make
them. We made a few phone calls and Resin is King Series 1 was born. Now
for Series 2, we've expanded to reflect the wide variety of resin
figures being produced day in and day out. We're always really excited
as we prepare for these releases because every single WIP shot that
rolls in is a brand-new sculpt! We hope you dig these resin figures as
much as we do. RESIN IS KING SERIES 2 ARTIST ROSTER
