"New Alexandrian Scout, circa 1886"

A great Mascot by DeeTen...

This machine was hanging in the the Grand Central Museum located in the Great City of Netro. The scout was shot down while it tried to record the layout and blueprints of the city. New Alexandria has been at odds with the other 12 Great cities since it attacked its rival city. Many of the great cities reported seeing these scouts over their borders, most of them being shot down. This intrusion only intensifies the world's reluctance to deal with the floating city of New Alexandria. The floating city has been missing for quite some time, many dreading it return.

 This piece will be available at, today (4/30/13) sometime for $300 USD

Rock n Roll Fred and Ginger by Bash

Bash is busy these days, another finished project. Really dig that gnome!
Rock n Roll Fred and Ginger
Fred is a huge fan of the rockband "BA/SH". Because he was so sweet for Ginger she decided to suprise him. She put on a BA/SH t-shirt and told him to change because they were going to a BA/SH concert tonight. Fred was so excited that he ran into the house, took off his shirt, put on his skull belt and ran back out. Ginger was shocked... Fred was covered in tattoo's! With a huge BA/SH tattoo on his back...

Junior Hellfire edition by Lou Pimentel & MPH Labs

'Before he was Cranston Fellows Jr., this little devil bat was just known as Junior. Small, egg shaped and lovable, he was born in the underworld and was a prankster from day one. Junior likes to dance, paint, and play practical jokes. His favorite pastime is hiding in small places and jumping out to scare his mom. Yes, he’s living his toddler years to their fullest. He does not make his bed and loves making a mess. He prefers peanut M&M’s and is always looking for new adventures. Speaking of adventure, Junior would love to come home with you to start one together. You bring cookies and a map and he’ll bring the ruckus.'

Designed by Lou Pimentel and produced by mphlabs, this piece stands 2.75" high by 5" wide. It is made of Japanese vinyl and comes poly bagged with a header card. You can pick one up for $34.99 i the Tenacious Toys online store.

PapaBehr Update - "Destroyed PapaBehr" Release!‏

I really dig this one and would love to own it, you guys too?

We're currently in our last week and a bit of our Kickstarter campaign! We've hit our first stretch goal of 35K! This means that our second toy, Destroyed PapaBehr, is now available to backers!  Anyone who has pledged the 'Heroic' mode ($100) and up will receive the Limited Edition Destroyed PapaBehr. We spent the last 3 weeks designing 'Destroyed PapaBehr' and we're excited to produce it along with the original PapaBehr. He's equipped with a detached bionic eye, detachable chest plate (so you can see his inner circuitry), and hand cannon! We're on our way to our second stretch goal of 50K: The Neo-Samurai Armour and Weapon Set!

Patrick T Rex the Third

Bash rocks it with this one...

Patrick's great great great great great great great great great great grandfather was the almighty T-Rex "Patrick T. Rex the First". He was the king of his time and on top of the food chain. But there was one little thing that bothered him...

He had really small hands!

He decided to that matters in to his own hands and changed his way of evolution...

Now - hundreds of years later - meet Patrick T. Rex the Third. He's still a T-Rex dinosaur but he's not on top of the food chain anymore.

While his hands are now bigger than the hands of his ancestors, he shrunk in body size. He's the almighty T-Rex with hands to big for his body!

Patrick is a custom made Raaar! for the upcoming Group Exhibition for Clutter Magazine New York.

'Roadkill M.C Sergeant-At-Arms' by Hugh Rose

Stunning piece!

For the 'Fonzo Loves UK' show at Sho Gallery in May I revisited the very first commission I ever did (check it out here: ... 3#p2163743) and made this piece.

Here's the backstory:

"You've heard of the Hell's Angels, but the Roadkill Motorcycle Club are the real thing. Cursed to ride the road where they met their end for all eternity, RMC members have returned from Munny Hell to avenge careless driving... so KEEP YOUR EYES ON THE ROAD!"
