Kickstarter - Steamy Chums by Mira Conci

 
Steamy Chums is a recently launched Kickstarter project, by Mira Conci of the Netherlands, to help fund the production of the Steamy Chums line of designer toys. Steamy Chums is a line of handcrafted and hand painted designer toys. In order to find more efficient ways of producing Steamy Chum figures, while maintaining high quality and standards, funding was needed. Mira Conci hopes the Kickstarter will not only produce funding to improve fabrication techniques and streamline production, but also allow for the development of new characters. The reward levels are priced in Euros and for people outside of the Netherlands, a few more Euros needs to be pledged for shipping. With rewards starting at just 1 Euro, there is a reward level for everyone. So, check out the video and if possible, pledge for a reward to help make this a successful Kickstarter project.

This is no potato salad.

"Rose and Sky" - Custom 8" McStomp Dunny by Jon-Paul Kaiser

 It's always great when a collector receives his/her commission from an artist. Not only do they get what could possibly have taken months, but the world also finally gets to see what's been created. One of Jon-Paul Kaiser's latest commissions reached it's destination and now everyone gets to envy this lucky collector. Jon-Paul was commissioned to create a custom based on a Jaeger from Pacific Rim, using a Penelelope McStomp 8" Dunny. Jon-Paul was excited to be able to customize, this already amazing, 8" dunny and he drew inspiration from the "Gypsy Danger" Jaeger. Jon-Paul named the piece "Rose and Sky", armed with power sword and battered shield. As with many of Jon-Paul's customs, Jon-Paul utilized the existing design, accenting curves and hard edges, while having a somewhat minimalistic design. Since the McStomp 8" Dunny also came with a 3" Dunny pilot, this custom would not be complete without a custom pilot. Another great custom produced by the steady handed Jon-Paul Kaiser. As with most customs by Jon-Paul Kaiser, the finished photos were taken by photographer Justin Allfree.

Sick Mr. Bigglesworth custom Mega Munny by AppleHeadToys

Mr. Bigglesworth has been locked up in the basement of the Georgia’s Insane Asylum located in Milledgeville. He was placed down in the basement and forgotten. No one knows for how long. No records can be found for this Mega Munny. He no longer speaks –unless provoked. 

Created with Sculpey, this Mega Munny is sure to be a topic of conversation. I can't believe the gruesome details here, like nose hair and boogers! Amazing. His mouth guard is attached to him because he likes to bite. A simple flaw; we all have flaws. Mr. Big’s straight jacket is customized and sewn to his exact measurements. Made out of 100% leather, his fasteners are vintage and are necessary for him to not be able to escape.

No need to brush his teeth or manicure those feet because he doesn’t mind being a little dirty. He doesn’t mind anything at all. Feel free to tell him your secrets. He won’t tell. You can always lock him up again.

Fun Facts:
  • Face/feet made out of sculpey 
  • Eyes are hand painted with resin seal 
  • Straight Jacket: hand sewn leather w/ antique fasteners 
  • Teeth made out of resin 
  • One of a Kind 
  • He likes to bite! 

Mr. Bigglesworth is for sale at the AppleHead Toys' website:
