NEXT LEVEL - Plastic Cell Marzy


To celebrate my triumphant return to blogging here, I'm going to do a series of posts about folks that I feel are doing "Next Level" work.

First up is the new Marzy release from Plastic Cell.

So why does this qualify as "Next Level"?
  1. Double DIY:  Sculpt, mold and cast blank THEN sculpt and paint customs?  Awesome.
  2. Presentation:  Full color packaging, figure with accessories and a print.  Take notes folks.
  3. Price: Total package price for the Marzy figure - $89 plus shipping.  Accessible to collectors but not astronomical.  Perfect pricing.
  4. Quality: Just a damn nice looking figure.  Evocative and respectful of the source without being a shameless rip off.
All the releases are based on a blank figure sculpted and cast by the Plastic Cell crew called "White Cell".  They can be purchased individually for an exceptionally reasonable $15 (mine was $22 shipped).

So check them out on Facebook and Instagram!

Ian Ziobrowski kills it...

Just saw these amazing customs on Ian's Facebook account. These customs blew me totaly away!
"Roasting" this Nuggyeater is one of the biggest yet. Standing 12 inches tall this custom Paw Raw can be seen miles away roasting the finest in NUGGLIFE. These are not commonly seen creatures, but will devour fields within minuets. Best have some good traps, cause it will take a lot to take one of these down.

The "Pill Keeper"... Evil has come to NUGGLIFE.. For a green country only something must done. Even Crook Ed the cop doesn't approve.

Leafy "HAZE" custom, and "The Burnt Snails" custom Betso dunny. Snails will be Available online.
