How-To: The Making of the B5100 by Tesselate

The B5100 is a sweet original figure (it's almost more of a playset) by Tesselate. Ever wonder how he makes his amazing and brightly-colored figures? Here's a guide he just published! It takes you from concept, to 3D renderings, to finishing, to silicone mould-making, to pouring resin. The whole shebang, from start to finish. Fascinating!

Seal #4: Death Resin Figure by Menace Inc Studios

This is the first full reveal picture for the Death figure by Menace Inc Studios. Made for the 7 Seals Resin Blind Box Series, Death is about 4" tall with his scythe. The figure was cast in resin with an iron coating. Jeff used a special technique to rapidly rust the iron and then seal it to stop the rusting process and fix the look of the piece.

Pictured is the regular version- 1 of 7 made. There is also one chase variant that will be kept a surprise.

Another special one-off version will be part of the big giveaway at midnight. Several of the artists involved in the 7 Seals event will make one-off figures to give away at that magical hour of midnight at the event.

More details can be found at the Facebook event page for the 7 Seals Release Party. The party will take place at the Geeksboro Coffeehouse Cinema in Greensboro, NC.

Bad Apple Rotofugi Exclusive by GOIN x Mighty Jaxx - Preorders Open 12/17!

Rotofugi has announced a preorder for an exclusive run of just 50 Bad Apples, the gorgeous graffiti work by French artist GOIN which was turned into an 8" resin figure with the help of Mighty Jaxx of Singapore.

Cast in a sick bright green with a black grenade, it's set to retail for $110. It's important to note here that what you see above is really close to the final product, but still a mockup. The bandanas on the final copies will have a debossed pattern like this:

They go live in the Rotofugi store on Monday, December 17th at 11AM Central Time. The first preorder edition of 300 sold out in just a few days, and my hunch is that this much smaller run will be gone in a flash, so be there!
