Custom Freight Train Box Cars by DrilOne

One to never stop working, DrilOne recently put up some HO Scale weathered freight Train Box cars in his store.
Image from DrilOne
These trains have been popping a lot more recently, getting worked and painted by some great artists. A perfect base for artists with a graffiti background, or any artist for that matter. These box cars remind me of sitting at a train track waiting for the miles long Santa Ana train to pass, all while admiring the passing graffiti. DrilOne has 8 of these awesome looking box cars up for sale, selling for $100 plus shipping. Sold blind boxed style, the buyer doesn't know which one he/she will get. As an added bonus, DrilOne will add a name or tag on the other side of the box car, making a truly unique custom.

 From DrilOne's product page:
These are 7" long and 2" high. I did the weathering and graffiti. This includes your name/tag on other side. There is 8 and they will be blindly sold. You wont know which one you get till to receive it.
Please let me know the name you want on the other side. I can do certain pictures too....
Don't wait to long to purchase one of these pieces, it may not last long with only 8 being available.

 Nathan Hamill Bellicose Bunny Stinker Edition
 

"Forged by the stars and space alike, and stuff and things, the Bellicose Bunny was enlisted by top minds throughout the universe to seek out, thwart and destroy all known evil. Equipped with a pair of space goggles and the Sword of Ulyssia, he mounted his Daucus: Class 8 Rocket and embarked on his quest. Now he's reached this galaxy and needs our help in his noble mission. Hear his cry for peace: 'Starbunny Fields Forever!'"
 
This 7 inch vinyl bunny on a carrot rocket was designed by Nathan Hamill and sculpted by George Gaspar. Limited to only 100 pieces, the retail price for this piece is $50 bucks, but you can get it for half that ($25) in the Tenacious Toys online store right now.

KiD iNK iNDUSTRiES Sumo Troopers drop this Sunday March 31st

 We are very pleased to announce a huge release this upcoming Sunday: Kris Dulfer of KiD iNK iNDUSTRiES has cast up his 3" resin Sumo Trooper sculpt for a simultaneous Super Series Sunday drop on both our website and the KiD iNK Hazarai shop page. The blue Sumo Trooper above will be exclusive to Tenacious Toys. The red one below is exclusive to Hazarai.

 But the hefty fun does not stop there... Kris is also hiding some Golden Tickets and chase colorways in the blind bags of both releases. Hazarai gets one Golden Ticket figure hidden amongst their 15 blind-bagged red Sumo Troopers. Tenacious Toys gets a number of GID figures, some hand-painted figures, and a Golden Ticket amongst our 25 pieces.

There's a ton of kick-ass resin to go around. Each blind-bagged figure will be $30- same price on both sites. Gotta visit both sites to get one of each!
To recap: Super Series Sundays this week (March 31st) will drop at 4PM EST with the release of the KiD iNK Sumo Troopers on two different websites: Tenacious Toys and Hazarai. Blind bagged figures will be $30 each. Hazarai has 15, we have 25. See you on Sunday!

We recommend you open your account and add your billing info to it before the drop so you don't spend time adding it all while other customers do their best to cart-jack you by checking out faster. There's been quite a bit of interest in this release, globally, so we expect it to sell out.

Sametan: Don't Tread On Me March 29 show to save sharks

For one weekend only, March 29-30, 2013, the Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco will host a one of a kind art exhibition featuring 30 custom Sametan vinyl figures designed by 30 global artists including Frank Kozik, Buff Monster, Jenn Porreca and many more.

Through this unique event they aim to generate greater awareness for the global plight of sharks and the importance of our oceans via creative and entertaining avenues in order to raise critical funding to support PangeaSeed’s ongoing efforts and groundbreaking projects.

Proceeds raised through the sales of the vinyl figures will help fund PangeaSeed’s 2014 “Year of Living Dangerously” art tour of Asia. Because Asia is ground zero for the trade and consumption of many endangered species, the 2014 Asian event will reach six major Asian cities extending our core message to critical audiences.

Striking similarities...

Above: "London Calling" was a custom Vinylmation created by Evilos for our April 2012 Candy Coated Custom Show in NYC.

Below: The Union Jack 5" Mini Qee Bear by Toy2R- a production toy slated to arrive soon. I'm not sayin nuthin... just that the timing is odd on this. 1 year is usually the max roll-out time from concept to reality, at least for platform toys. It's been about 11 months since our show.

Featured Product of the Day - March 26, 2013

Todays featured product is another Tenacious Toys exclusive, the Uncle Argh Noir Mini Qee by Scott Tolleson. This is the second colorway of this piece and availble only at the Tenacious Toys online store.  The vinyl piece stands 5 inches tall, is limited to only 500 pieces and was produced by Toy2R.

Scott Tolleson called Benny of Tenacious Toys one day and asked if he wanted to have the Argh Noir colorway as a Tenacious Toys exclusive. Of course, Benny did, but he didn't have the money to fund the run of 500 Mini Qees. So Benny turned to Kickstarter, the crowd-funding platform, and put together his first Kickstarter project. After a nail-biting 2 months, the Argh Noir Kickstarter was fully funded and the money was sent to Toy2R to begin production! We are now selling the Årgh Noirs as we would any other product on our website since all Argh Noir Mini Qee rewards have been shipped to the backers of the project.
