Leecifer's "Long Dogs" at Stranger Factory this Friday!

Leecifer wanted to give us all a heads up on his show "Long Dogs", which premieres tomorrow night at Stranger Factory in Albuquerque, alongside two other independent shows by DrilOne and Limon. Looks like a typical lineup full of insanity from Leecifer. I'm particularly digging the Mirrorman Kitty Fire. No doubt the others will deliver as well. A fun time shall be had by all!


"Encountered as seemingly ordinary plants and animals hinting at an impossible intellect or ancient wisdom. Seen from the corner of your eye, a flash of golden scales revealed to be but a Tabby’s fur, a serpentine shadow solidifies into one from a Wiener Dog, improbable wings on a frog. Sometimes, the glimpse becomes the knowing smile of a Boston Bulldog that, in passing, might have had catfish whiskers, or a turtle with too many heads. Or the sense that, even in times of harshest trial, there is a powerful presence shepherding and guiding you. This is the gift of a long dog. Possible dragons, unrecognized conduits of wonder and magic, hiding in plane sight." - Leecifer

“PSUEDOMORPHISM”

“Toy Art Gallery is proud to present “PSUEDOMORPHISM”, New Works by Blobpus, Paul Kaiju, and Hawana, featuring figures by Yamomark. This epic grouping pairs the legendary Japanese toy artist Blobpus with his legendary American contemporary Paul Kaiju for an explosion of customized vinyl figures and collaborative mash-ups composed of an expansive range of their classic toys and characters such as Blobpus, Diablo, Boss Carrion, Mockbat, and many more. This synergy has also led one of Toy Art Gallery’s most ambitious projects to date, a collaborative production figure created (and sculpted) by both Paul Kaiju and Blobpus known only as Vertebrata!
The show also features customs and paintings from frequent Blobpus collaborator Hanawa, whose bold paint applications pop against his unique monster designs (sculpted by Blobpus). Japanese toy maker Yamomark has also contributed his unique kaijin (humanoid monster) toys to the show, which feature gorgeous Blobpus paintjobs.
Psuedomorphism features:
- over 100 unique custom vinyl toys from Blobpus, Paul Kaiju, Hanawa and Yamomark
- a new entry in our Lifesize Fiberglass Figure Series
- special custom editions of Paul Kaiju’s Pollen Kaiser and Luftkaiser
- the debut of new vinyl collaborative toy Vertebrata by Paul Kaiju and Blobpus

Please join us, Paul Kaiju and Blobpus (in his first US appearance ) for the exhibit opening on Saturday, February 2nd from 7-10pm at Toy Art Gallery’s showroom located at 7571 Melrose Ave. Hollywood CA 90046.
PSEUDOMORPHISM runs through February 23rd.”

Dead Mario Mascot, X Bot and Codename Dude

Sekure D is killing it....

This was a private commission by an awesome collector who gave me a picture of a tshirt design which was the cover of Super Mario Brothers 2 but Mario had a scull face with the kaws style jawline. I didn't want to make it look like a Kaws piece so I flipped the shape of the jaw around a touch and went to town on it with my own style. Stoked with how it come out. 


This bot is also for the same collector who let me do whatever I wanted, just had fun with this one, already had a few people contact me to grab it after a crappy instagram picture but its spoken for, this was just a fun custom. 

3" Dudebox custom for DopeVinyls upcoming blind box series!

Hope you guys like them I should have a few more Dunnys and a Paw finished this week then its onto some 8" Dunnys and a Tequila! Good times! - Sekure D

Meltdown Dunny 8" by Chris Ryniak

Celebrate a Happy Valentines day with a new 8" dunny by Chris Ryniak. Using Chris' Apocalypse Series Dunny design, Kidrobot has produced an 8" version of the Meltdown Dunny. The Meltdown Dunny is going to come in 4 different GID and translucent colorways, limited to 500 pieces for each color.

Meltdown Dunny


Of course, Kidrobot is not going to make it easy for the completists out there because each colorway is going to be offered by a different type of retailer. The Green edition is going to be sold exclusively by Kidrobot retail stores, while the Yellow edition is going to be the online exclusive for Kidrobot.com. International retailers are going to sell the Orange edition and the US retail stores will get the Pink edition. I personally am looking forward to the Pink edition and this 8" Dunny. Hitting the store on February 14, each Dunny is going to retail for $75 (£60 UK, €69.60 EU).

Kidrobot Major Lazer Edition

 
Guns don’t kill people… lazers do.
1984: the Olympic Games are held in LA, President Reagan runs for re-election, the AIDS epidemic runs rampant, and underneath it all, the secret Zombie War rages. One secret soldier is rescued from the fray, his arm gone, but his spirit strong. He is given an experimental lazer prosthetic and hired by the CIA to continue his fight against the forces of evil. He fronts as a dancehall nightclub owner from Trinidad, though in truth, he is a badass Jamaican keeping the world safe from vampires and monsters, while partying hard and tweeting.
Major Lazer Kidrobot is an 8-inch vinyl homage to the renegade soldier turned CIA operative. A collaborative project of the Grammy nominated producer Diplo and DJ Switch, Major Lazer debuted with the album Guns Don’t Kill People… Lazers Do in 2009, followed by Lazers Never Die in 2010. A new album, titled Free the Universe, featuring Diplo as the solo executive producer, is out February 2013. Major Lazer Kidrobot has a uniquely sculpted head and lazer arm to properly capture his eighties commando style and signature prosthetic. The real Major Lazer is hitting the road 2/28 for a 43 city world  headlining tour beginning in Toronto.
Retailing for $50 US, this ‘bot hits the stage February 19 at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers worldwide.

This Mascot is designed by MAD.

Red Mutuca's Special Guest for Superish is... Chauskoskis

The final reveal for Red Mutuca's "Superish" Dunny mini series brings the special guest of the series, Chauskoskis, aka Walter Jacott. Walter created a wonderful character named "Super Weenie".

From Red Mutuca:
Wonderfully sculpted and painted, the real awe-inspiring note on this is — of course — that they are captured mid-flight; suspended in the air on a simple stand, one can easily forget that the black wire is there and pretend these vinyl beauties are flying around by their own secret power. While this might be the most immediately notable aspect, the character's name is "Super Weenie," able to attract lonely women with a single arrow! An arrow directing one's gaze towards the figure's… um… "package."

Super Weenie by Chauskoskis for Superish
Super Weenie by Chauskoskis for Superish

Walter did a great job of subtly modifying the Dunny form, to give the figures a sense of flight. With pointed feet and a bulging package, Super Weenie is ready to take on the single ladies of the world. I am still curious to what lies behind the mask, as it appears to be removable as seen in one of Walters teasers on Instagram.

Keep an eye out for more information surrounding the final release of the rest of the 40 blind boxes in the Superish series. Looks like they'll be going up for sale here.
