Makkinoso is releasing a new, limited edition series of Swamp Cat handmade resin figures. The series consists of 10 pieces and will be made available via the Makkinoso etsy store beginning today at 10PM (CET). Each Swamp Cat costs $55 and comes with a header card, stickers and a badge. This new version has sculpted eyes and is 3.5" tall.
Spanish designer - Emilio Garcia - describes his Jumping Brain character as “all the prodigious brains that day by day, with their art, work (to) stimulate the scene of pop-surrealism.” We look at it and see a brain crossed with a frog.
Garcia and lapolab have turned his creation into a high quality resin piece. Some folks might find it creepy, some might find it introspective…we just find it interesting.
The Jumping Brain DIY figure was packaged in a fairly simple brown cardboard box. It had Promo Edition LE 50 stenciled on the top. Inside, the figure was wrapped in tissue paper and surrounded by Styrofoam peanuts.
Emilio Garcia will release the Red version of his Jumping Brain resin figure on December 20th. It will be limited to one per customer, so don't be greedy. The handmade figure will be shipped to you straight from Spain.
Killer Toy, a new Italian designer toy project, has introduced us to their King Kill figure. In the pictures, you can see examples of the hand painted resin prototypes. The final versions will be available in
Le Merde has introduced their new figure Breaker Lee. "You could say he is an off spring of Getter Poseidon and Kinnikuman." This run was released in a set with Bwana Spoon's robot friend Maynard. They sold out, but there will be new releases soon.

Check out these work in progress shots from Gary Ham. If you thought that whole thing about Superham being made out of basswood was made up, you can check out the project in the pre-painted stages.
Check out Gary Ham's handmade (out of basswood) Superham figure. This hand-painted piece could be yours, as Gary is planning on releasing some of these handmade babies to the masses. And maybe there will be other variants. Keep your eyes peeled.
Onorio Depiro recently graduated from the University of Hertfordshire after studying model design and special effects. His work consists of sculpted small cartoon-like models made of polymer clays and chemi wood. This work is really well done. Let's hope that hes able to release some of his work to a large scale audience.
We've gotten word that a large lot of Emilio Garcia's Jumping Brain resin figures are set to ship. I'm sure that this makes all of those frog zombies, who are searching for brains, happy.
