Custom Groper Being Auctioned to Benefit Victims of Sandy Hook Shooting

 This custom-painted resin collectible is being auctioned on eBay by a guy named Eddie Ortega. The platform is the Groper, which was created by Rich Fournier (Triplikid). 100% of the money raised from this auction will be donated to United Way of Western CT.
Rich writes:

This incident hits particularly close to home for me, both literally and figuratively. I live about 10 minutes from Sandy Hook elementary, and I have a son the same age as the Children in those classrooms who had their lives taken from them far too soon. My Son's school was in immediate lockdown, and initial reports had put a second person of interest heading into my home town. And while those reports were incorrect, thankfully, the panic and helpless feeling is not something anyone should feel.

I am lucky that I can go home and hug my children extra tight, and tell them how much I love them.

Please, consider supporting Eddie's effort to make a small difference, and bid on his customized piece.

NUGGLIFE Grow-Op #2 with DEA Headquarters by Ian Ziobrowski

 This is the full, ridiculous reveal of Ian Ziobrowski's Grow-Op #2 and DEA Headquarters 10" MadL set, which comes with a boxed set of 6 custom 3" Dunnys and one 3" BIC Buddy. It's epic. Ian's been grinding away on these customs for months- there was a reveal of sorts at our NYCC booth but here are all the pictures for you to drool over. Also check the cool video by Jordan Ahern:

This is the NUGGLIFE Grow-Op #2 with DEA Headquarters. This set includes 2 10" MADL's with six 3" custom dunnys and one 3" custom bic buddy. This set was part of the creation of my newest character's of the year SMOKEY, and Agent Ox! Now each MADL comes with LED lighting and easy access battery. Characters fit inside each operation allowing you set up to the clients desire. Here's a little something about the story:

For the past 3 years I've been working on a series of works portraying a seen in American society for hundreds of years now. NUGGLIFE a world were underground influences emerge to create an exclusive lifestyle......the hustler!

​ These three characters of mine Nuggs, Thugz, and Crooked ED, are out to do what they do and demand, and everyone goes home happy. Now of course there's people to interfere with NUGGLIFE's transactions. In this new set I've included something that's never been seen before, "The DEA Headquarters". This operation is much worse than NUGGS expected. Now with tracking technology, cloning devices, and a hide out the DEA are back in action!

Cool Munnyworld Customs by 64 Colors

Creating cool customs is something that seems to come naturally for the 64 Colors duo. 64 Colors recently put up some very sweet customs in their shop: a 7" Trikky, a 7" Foomi and a 4" Trikky. Each exquisitely painted custom comes with an equally exquisite hand painted accessory. I love the way 64 Colors creates the eyes on each piece, as well as the depth of the wood-like texture. Awesome pieces of art for any collection.
"My thoughts are not my own", 7" Trikky by 64 Colors
