In addition to the acrylic cut version, FLABSLAB also released a laser woodcut DarthTerra.

Lapin Noir - Le Sabre x Huck Gee

Many leagues from Grey Wolf's Creek, over the thundering front where the giant, shambling tin cans clash, lies the Untz occupied burrows of Grass Valley. And it is here, beneath a nondescript bar, behind a secret staircase, and only spoken about in careful whispers, that lies the headquarters of Lapin Noir: the people's resistance. This covert group comprised of saboteurs, informants, news runners and shadow smugglers protect the occupied locals and sow confusion from behind enemy lines.

Of the many heroic members of the resistance, Le Sabre is considered one of the most notorious amongst the enemy. Silent with his blades, he is a stealthy infiltrator and backdoor perpetrator, who is well versed in destroying supplies, stealing classified documents, and wrecking havoc amongst the enemy occupiers. He is considered a giant pain in the ass by many an Untz commander and this notoriety has left his name sitting constantly atop the Untz' bounty list.

In his free time, Le Sabre has a passion for good whiskey, card games and beautiful women.

Le Sabre is now available! He stands 9.5" tall, give or take. Signed and numbered. Set of 10. $850 + S&H. Payment due at time of ordering. The figure will ship in approximately 4-6 weeks. Anyone interested in adding this sword wielding member of the resistance to your collection please email ASAP.

"Hooton" Custom Kidrobot Trikky

Kasey Tararuj is a NJ-based artist who experienced a traumatizing moment in her teenage years when an unexpected AVM on her spinal cord took away the use of her legs. Through this experience, she found her passion for art both life changing and life saving.

Work intended for giggles, for others to relate to, and simply for the sake of creating something fun.
