Dave Barnes’ Custom Bax Bear

Barnes

Okay...I realize that the Bax Bear platform toy might just look like a slimmed down Qee.  But the above custom, by Dave Barnes, might be one of my favorite customs out there.  If they turned this one into a limited edition run, I"d be all about picking up the line.

Steve Nash ASV Illustrations

MAD is responsible for illustrating the initial artwork for this Steve Nash All-Star Vinyl figure.  I must say that his work is rather impressive and I like that the stance is more action than posing.  Hopefully, Upper Deck will be able to realistically recreate the box art when sculpting the figure (which didn't seem to happen with Shaquille O'Neal).  Personally, I think I might have to go after the orange jersey.
