Birch Tree Ent Mini by Kevin Gosselin

Kevin Gosselin recently finished a set of custom mini munnys called the Birch Tree Ent Mini. A small series of 10 customs are going to be made available for purchase at Noon PST on February 9th. Made using a Mini Munny as the base, Kevin sculpted and painted the gorgeous piece you see below. With a price tag of $275 plus shipping, I think that this a perfect price point for such an awesome piece, considering Kevin recently auctioned off his MW3 APs for more. I'm sure this will make any collector very happy.

If you are keen on purchasing one of these customs, be sure to get your F5 button ready before noon on Saturday. To go along with this release, Kevin has also put up a few more customs in his shop, Sydney the Sapling and Field Study Mouse. A couple of great looking pieces as well.

Hitomi by Bjornik

The latest amazing Dunny from Bjornik...

No one quite knew how the men were disappearing. They were yakuza, after all, gruff and fearless and able to take care of themselves. But as they went missing one by one, whispers started to circulate among the locals of a one-eyed sushi with a taste for mean blood or a flaming wasabi ronin bent on revenge.

Only Hitomi, the dainty geisha famed for her alluring eyes and siren singing, knew the truth. Smiling to herself in the mirror, she touched up her crimson lips and hid a pair of razor-like chopsticks in the secret compartment of her geta. She had an appointment tonight with Kenta of the Yamaguchi-gumi. Their first meeting would be his last.
