Wasted Talent x Suckadelic "Gayberry" Mini Marijuana Medallions



Nasty neil writes:

This is a collab I did with The Sucklord at the original Suckhole. 

These are all resin casts, individually hand painted along with The Sucklord's signature hot pink paint splatter and comes on a 27" black ball chain. 

The magnificently rare fruity flavor of this meticulously hand crafted bud is "Gayberry". Only 50 were made and each comes in a plastic dime bag with a shitty custom header card. 

It will be available Jan 5th 2015 at 4:20pm EST on www.wstdtlnt.com for $25.

Modern Brick Warfare at BrickFair Alabama 2015


Brick based toys, not just LEGO, have a huge following for being somewhat modular and customizable. BrickFair is a LEGO Fan festival, which is held at different times of the year, in several different states. Now, there are many versions of this type of event happening year round, this particular event is being held in Birmingham, Alabama on January 17th and 18th, 2015. Modern Brick Warfare Toys is going to be in attendance at BrickFair Alabama and those who plan on attending should check them out.  Modern Brick Warfare has tons of accessories and mini figs to create a military themed army, ready to invade (or protect) any LEGO city. Everything is Awesome!

Custom Coarse Toys Locks by Jon-Paul Kaiser

Jon-Paul Kaiser's latest masterpiece is a Custom Coarsetoys Locks figure. Created to be both a character and a scene, this custom Locks features a serene looking monk passing through a narrow valley in the woods. On the raised arm, across the Valley, a bear is depicted, standing as he hears the monk passing through the valley, everything at peace. The face of the locks was painted in a way to provide it some character, while the scene is essentially a very intricate tattoo that exists on the Locks. A wonderful piece for Jon-Paul Kaiser to close the year on. As with all of Jon-Paul's work, photographer Justin Allfree is credited with capturing the beauty of all of Jon-Paul's custom Locks figure. Jon-Paul showed Justin all of his appreciation for Justin's help, guidance and amazing photography by gifting this Custom Locks figure to Justin. A stunning gift indeed. Jon-Paul should be gearing up for a strong 2015. What JPK has in store for the world, only time will tell.

Custom ThreeA WWRP Armstrong "Dapper Lad" by Small Angry Monster on eBay

Small Angry Monster writes:
When creating customs, the process involves quite a bit of imagination. One of the reasons that I am so compelled to work on ThreeA toy's robots is the rich back story. As attractive as it is, I can't leave well enough alone and wanted to branch out a bit into the history that isn't covered by the books and toys. 

After reading this entry on the ThreeA Wiki, I was inspired to create a 'bot that was outside of the normal body types. I assumed that there would be many unused prototypes, and this could be one of them. I wrote a bit of fiction about it below:


"As the leading competitor to Rothchild, Hobson & Dolch created many prototypes that never saw full production. "Dapper Lad" was a re-engineered 'bot built off an Armstrong frame. Utilizing the demoralizing psyops of the Square and a destructive armor-piercing RPG launcher, this 'bot was found to be unstable in it's programming. After a friendly fire incident during field testing, the "Dapper Lad" project was scrapped."

You can bid on Dapper Lad here on eBay.

Fabulous Custom by VISEone

VISEone has been somewhat quiet as of late, working on metal art more often. VISEone did find time to create a nice custom titled "f#ck you! I'm Fabulous.", using a Monster Mate 5" blank vinyl. This piece is priced at $150, which includes the wooden base and worldwide shipping. Be sure to check out VISEone's relaunched website, as there are some amazing metal sculptures to gaze upon.

Matt A's Owls are back... and ready to perch on your Christmas Tree!

Matt A* made this crazy owl sculpt last year or the year before and it was hella cool and people were really into it... problem was, Matt is insane and made the thing was like 15 or 18 inches wide and it was hella complicated and time consuming to make each piece. I keep telling the guy to make small stuff that normal people can easily afford and he usually doesn't listen to me. Until now... 

Matt decided to shrink his owl character down to bite-size and turn them into ornaments for your Christmas tree or to hang from your menorah. Matt doesn't know you can hang his owls from a menorah, but you can. I'm half Jewish, you can trust me. Your menorah needs more deco anyway, like sleigh bells and tinsel. Wait, what? I told you I'm HALF Jewish. I'm trademarking that menorah decorating idea, by the way, so don't even try it. Benny's DecoMenorah™

Matt calls these ornaments "TreeTerrors" and you can grab yours for $35 each here in Matt's store. There are a bunch of colors and Matt will choose one blind to send to you... because he's colorblind. See how that works? He can't tell the red one from the green one so anytime he picks a piece out, he literally cannot know which one he's sending you. 

Each TreeTerror comes with a hanging eye hook for you to attach a ribbon or just an ornament hook. Matt also suggests that you hang one from your nipple clamp but he's pretty twisted and I bet he's actually parading around his house right now with nipples clamps on and little owls hanging from them... it's all "Goodbye horses" over there during the holidays. Let's all support Jamie Gumb... I mean Matt Anderson.

3A Transformers Bumblebee up for preorder at Bambaland store

Chalk this post up under the category: "Too Cool Not to Share Even Though I'm Not Making Any Money Off of It..."

ThreeA, creators of some of the most intricate and beautiful designer art toys, has acquired the Transformers license and you can bet that this will not be the last Transformers character that they will produce in their own signature style...

Check the stats:

  • Figure Stands 15-Inches (38.1cm) Tall and 12-Inches (30.5cm) Wide
  • Fully Posable With Over 65 Points of Articulation, Including Articulated Fingers
  • Interchangable Right Arm and Light-Up Cannon
  • Includes Detachable Combat Face Shield
  • LED Light-Up Feature on Eyes, Chest and Cannon
  • Highly-Detailed Sculpt and Realistic Paint Application
  • Bambaland Exclusive Version Includes Control Pillar Accessory
  • Control Pillar Has Light-Up Feature and Stands 8.5-Inches (21.6cm) Tall
Really impressive. Price is high even for an "art toy" but actually not high for a "Premium Scale" collectible: $390. And that includes shipping. So, if you're a Transformers super fan, or a 3A super fan, these pieces will pretty much cap off your collection. Not every kid on the block will have a 15" $400 Bumblebee.... Buy this figure now at the Bambaland store.

I'm waiting for the full Premium Optimus Prime with the unfolding trailer. Isn't Optimus taller than Bumblebee? So he'd be like 20 inches tall with a 4 foot long trailer or something? Toyporn!!!

Back the Pop Up Art Book on Kickstarter, featuring Tara McPherson, Jim Mahfood, Junko Mizuno, Skinner, kozyndan, and Angry Woebots


This colorful, intricately crafted book features multi-dimensional spreads from six internationally renowned artists who are each recognized for their unique work: Tara McPherson, Jim Mahfood, Junko Mizuno, Skinner, kozyndan, and Angry Woebots.

The idea behind this group book is to represent a wide range of contemporary art styles in an exciting new pop up format, and our ultimate goal is to get this book in as many of your hands as possible. After creating and self-publishing our first book, Pop Up Funk with artist Jim Mahfood in 2013, we reached out to other artists with the same simple concept: to take their art apart and then re-construct it as a three-dimensional pop-up spread.

Haunted by Innocence by TaskOne


Task One just gave us the heads up on his latest piece, Haunted by Innocence.  I just finished re-reading IT so pretty much anything with a grip of balloons is haunting to me, much less a little skull girl with a tag-a-long teddy bear.  This 10" tall piece features Huck Gee's Skullhead rotocast in resin by Task One.  Only 7 pieces were made and a few have already been claimed so you better hurry if you want one on your shelf!
