Monster Magnets and Plaques by Vanessa Ramirez

Monsters are great and can have the same emotions as people. At least that is what Artist Vanessa Ramirez is obsessed with showing, as she believes that "Monsters are People Too". Even though Vanessa has been extremely busy with her day job, she has plenty of goodies still available in her online store. Vanessa has a couple of resin Monster Plaques, among other things, that are going for $40 plus shipping. Each hand painted resin plaque measures around 3" in diameter and 1" thick. Only Brown and Green are left from her initial offering of 6 plaques. The brown one looks a bit like Chewbacca.


To go along with the Monster theme, Vanessa also has a few of her Monster Magnets for sale, at $10 plus shipping each. These hand painted little Monster heads each have different emotions and colors, with the green monster showing a bit of an attitude. The facial expressions on all of Vanessa's Monsters, sculpted and drawn, are fantastic. Keep in mind that all of these resin monsters, plaques and magnets, were created off of original sculpts by Vanessa.

Monster Magnet 4 - Grey by Vanessa Ramirez

For the time being, Vanessa's store is still full of goodies, so why not pick up a magnet or 2, or maybe even a plaque.

The gasmen and Cobra Trooper by Necro Monkey

Latest works from Necro Monkey...

They are dirty! They are crazy! They are the gasmen!

4 piece blindbox series
Micro munny platform with clay and a little hardware store touch here and there
Acrylic painted, ink washed, and kissed with a little glow in the dark spray paint (more on that in a second)
Each piece comes in a little wooden box with a bottle of “condense” and an extra treat
Dropping August 24th at 10am Pacific at

The gasmen are an odd bunch that work glow fields, but don’t let the name fool you.  The glow fields are actually clouded with midnight black smoke and ash that spews from vents in the ground.  The black ash covers everything which is why gasmen are always dirty and many chose to shave off their hair, but in that smoke and ash is the glow which becomes “condense”.  The gasmen harvest the ash and smoke from the glow fields and, through a process they keep hidden, produce “condense”.  This fluid is greenish yellow and uses are still being discovered for the stuff from lighting to power to even the common belief of medicinal.  What is known is that long time exposure in the glow fields does tend to cause gasmen and their equipment to glow in the dark a little whether that is bad or not is still unknown.

If successful, these may be the first characters in an alternate world.

Necro Monkey has also this custom micro munny available in his store...

New Clothing and Resin Figures from The Mark Ultra

Resin bootlegger The Mark Ultra has some new releases coming out Thursday, August 15th, at 10PM EST. First up is the next colorway of his popular Intruder figure, this time in emerald green. Retailing for $18 each plus shipping, like most of Mark Ultra's releases, these figures will likely come individually poly-bagged with a header card.

The Mark Ultra's next release features the return of The Mark Ultra's MUSCLE inspired mini figures, U.L.T.R.A figures. At $15 plus shipping for each flesh colored set, these awesome mini figures will be a great addition to any mini fig collection.
Accompanying the resin figures and not to be limited to releasing just cool toys, The Mark Ultra has the first release of a new clothing line, which includes a snap-back hat and some cool t-shirts. Each piece of clothing will cost $20 plus shipping.

Again, all of these goodies are going to be available in The Mark Ultra's shop at 10PM EST on Thursday August 15th. As most of The Mark Ultra's releases tend to sell out and while the clothing will probably not be too limited, one can be certain that the resin figures will be limited to a small quantity. Those wishing to pick up one of the resin releases should set his/her alarm, while also getting some F5-fu practice in.

Keep up with all things The Mark Ultra here:
