WIP: Zombie Nughut by Nugglife

WIP photos are always great. A brief look into an artists method and unfinished work. Nugglife's latest WIP photo's of Zombie Nughut shows rough sculpting, some foil, a switch and wires exposed. All of which will likely become hidden and seamless in the completed piece, as with all of Nugglife's pieces. Being built on a MADL head, a full reveal of this piece will be coming in the next week or so. Great insight.

Big Cat Series 1 by Fuller Designs

James Fuller, of Fuller Designs, has been busy lately creating new figures. Wanting to go bigger, Fuller created a 6" figure based on his Grrr character. Sculpted to be a little rough around the edges and all grown up, Series 1 of Grrr Big Cat Series features 4 different designs: Classic Tiger, Snow Leopard, Lion and Panther(Bloody). Priced at $140 each plus shipping, each figure was molded and cast by Fuller himself. Painted using Createx airbrush paints and acrylics, these are definitely a labor of love by Fuller. If these sell well, Fuller might be able to produce a Series 2 later this year. Due to the amount of work involved in creating these beasts, Fuller had to make the decision to limit the number of designs per series to just 4. Be sure to check them out and pick one up, these are great. As of right now, the Classic Tiger edition is sold out but there are a number of each of the remaining 3 designs.

Lost, 6"x6" Canvas by Nugglife x Eric Ziobrowski

Nugglife not only creates awesome figures, but canvas work is also part of the repertoire. A 6"x6" collaboration piece titled "Lost", Nugglife worked with Eric Ziobrowski to create Smokey relaxing in a nice scenic spot. It's always nice to see 2D work from toy customizers.

Hopeless XMas Dunny Set by Nugglife

One of Nugglife's latest creations is the Hopeless XMas custom Dunny set. Including two of Nugglife's favorite character's Smokin Clause and Nuggyeater, these pieces were hand sculpted and painted. Smokin Clause was spotted by Nuggs, lost in his travels due to a big snowstorm. Now Smokin Clause needs help to find his way, before Nuggyeater finds him. This set is already sold.

Custom MICKIV by Jon-Paul Kaiser

Jon-Paul Kaiser gets requests to customize everything. Jon-Paul's latest custom is based off a MICKIV figure by Arkiv. Taking a half minimalist approach to this stunning figure, Jon-Paul created the splayed musculature innards of the figure on one-half, while creating the skinned version on the other. A very clean custom which was photographed by Justin Allfree, Jon-Paul's photographer for all customs and work.

Custom 8" Dunny by Jon-Paul Kaiser

Kidrobot's Dunny figure not only makes for creating(or recreating) some cool characters, the figure can also make a nice canvas. Jon-Paul Kaiser's latest custom 8" Dunny features an Irish/Celtic mythological theme. One of the most popular legends is Lugh the High King and Protector of Ireland and Jon-Paul portrays this legend on the Dunny as Lugh battles with Balor the Dread Eye, King of the Formorians. Legend has is that Balor is said to be able to open his eye and have his dread gaze burn whatever is his gaze. To go along with the two adversaries is Oonah Sidhe, Queen of the Fairies, portrayed on the body of the Dunny. Oonah Sidhe is Summoning the power of the Earth goddess through the ancient standing stones to assist Lugh in battle. This is another great piece from Jon-Paul, with the photos taken by photographer Justin Allfree.

Darren Clegg's Ghost Squadron Storms Collect & Display 13.2.15

Darren Clegg shares with us two new 4" Munny, sculpted and hand painted, coming to Collect & Display 13.02.2015. Titled Ghost Squadron #1 and #2, these pieces take influence from the Japanese flag and emblem, giving them a warrior-like appearance. I particularly like the detail of the sun on the shoulder plate, inverted from #1 to #2, appearing to be the Rising Sun and Setting Sun.

These pieces will be available individually for £60ea on 13.02.2015 here on Collect & Display. For more of Darren's work, you can follow @darrenclegg on Instagram.
