k-4SLO Security Droid Custom

Mike Slobot has announced a new Slobot custom available to purchase. The k-4SLO Security Droid custom - likely familiar to fans of Rogue One - stands about 20 inches tall. It has a glow in the dark eye, custom painted lime green and silver body, and glow in the dark wires. You can pick it up for $250.00.

The k-4SLO Security Droid Story:

Truth be told, I’ve always wanted a protocol droid to help out in the Slobot factory, but we’ve just never taken the plunge. A few weeks ago, one of these KX-Series Security Droids went Rogue and stumbled into the Slobot factory looking for repairs. Like K-2SO from Star Wars Rogue One, he is a re-programmed Imperial Droid. In need of repair and tired of looking like he still worked for the Empire, the newly rebranded K-4SLO got an upgraded processor pack, a fresh lime green paint job and some new wiring. Now the factory has the best parts of a protocol droid and a protector droid. No word yet on whether he speaks Bocce.

 

Blood Bats – Joe Whiteford x Zectron x Unbox

Joe Whiteford has teamed up with Zectron again and taken vinyl bloodlust to an all new level with this micro-run of Blood Bats. Inspired by the endless winter and a thirst for warmth, each painstakingly hand-painted monster bat is beautifully unique. Each piece comes with an embroidered BLOOD BATS New Era Snapback (shown below) created exclusively for this release and a killer glow-in-the-dark bat head enamel pin made by Undeadequiped.

These 10 inch vinyl monsters were originally designed and sculpted by Zectron using the Brandt Peters Skelve head as inspiration and produced in the highest quality vinyl by Unbox Industries.

Limited to only 6 pieces and priced at $250.00 each, they're now available from http://joewhiteford.storenvy.com/.

John Wick Chapter 2 – The Pencil

"That f*cking nobody is John Wick." said Viggo Tarasov as he told the story about John killing 3 men in a bar with a pencil in John Wick and *spoiler alert*...in John Wick Chapter 2 you get to see him kill some bad guys with one. 

Scott Kinnebrew - a.k.a. The Forces of Dorkness - has created this John Wick Chapter 2 - The Pencil as a tribute to an amazing action-movie franchise. It's a real pencil, coated is resin for durability, and custom painted to look like it has entered someone's skull and then been retracted. Each one is hand made so there is some variation between each so no two are alike. 

Each one is a standard sized No. 2 pencil in a custom bloodied bag with a custom designed header card by The Forces of Dorkness. Limited to a run of 20 pieces, you can pick one up at The Forces of Darkness Shop for $16.95. (which is likely the most you've spent on a No. 2 pencil since those pencil fighting days back in 5th grade)

“It Started as a Fever” Custom 20-inch Munny

it-started-as-a-fever-1

"It Started as a Fever..." was one of six designs that were created by artists J*RYU and Linda Le for a series called "Faces of Death". Each 20-incht all mega MUNNY had an encapsulated storyline tied into the mythos of zombies, presented by using the inside of the head to establish the environment for which the MUNNY designed had emanated. For this piece, the piece details the origin of the "outbreak" where the dead would rise, and it starts in a hospital room where something terrible has happened. 

You can pick up this one-off piece only from Kidrobot, where it's selling for $1,500.00.
