MAD Toy Store Royal Sale

Kansas City not only produces some top notch sports teams, the city also is the home to a bunch of awesome artists. In 1985, the Kansas City Royals beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4 games to 3. Definitely a great series. Fast forward 29 years, not only did the Kansas City Royals finally make it to the playoffs after a 29 year drought, they are playing for all the marbles in the 2014 World Series. Now back to artists. KC based artist MAD is having a "Royal Sale!" to commemorate the Royals playing in the 2014 World Series. For as long as the 2014 World Series lasts, customers can use the promo code "RoyalKC" to receive 29% off his/her order. With KC on a nice undefeated Playoff run, having won every 2014 playoff game up to this point, MAD's sale will last at least until Saturday, October 25th. This is a perfect opportunity to add one or more pieces from MAD. Go Royals!

Coarsetoys Custom PAW by Jon-Paul Kaiser

Jon-Paul Kaiser's latest completed commission is a Star Wars/Eastern themed Coarsetoys PAW. When working on custom figures, Jon-Paul likes it when details of the original figure, or sculpt, can be seen. With nearly all of the original sculpt kept from the PAW figure, Jon-Paul wanted to re-sculpt the head of the PAW figure to look more like the Star Wars Stormtrooper helmet. Jon-Paul not only succeeded at creating the helmet, he was also able to work in parts of the original sculpted head, albeit the ears were lopped off. Overall, the completed piece is simple and clean, with tons of detail on both of the arms of the figure. When Jon-Paul took the completed figure to be photographed by Justin Allfree (who does all the photography for Jon-Paul's work), Justin loved the piece so much that he got a bit carried away with all the photos he took. Be sure to keep an eye on Jon-Paul's social media pages for more shots of the Stormtrooper PAW, especially the detail shots of the arms.
