Bob Conge of Plaseebo Custom was invited to create a custom figure for
the Blobpus Custom Art Show that was recently shown off at The Ghetto 100 Gallery
My custom "Ghost Condor Dokugan" is a one of a kind mash up and hand
paint on a glow in the dark vinyl Blobpus Dokugan figure using some
parts from a Velocitron Larvagon. It has red glass eye inserts, a
clear vinyl head with GID DX insert and a motion activated LED unit
inside the head.
Plaseebo will debut a new "Great American Kaiju" figure in the
"Toy Karma 2" show at Rotofugi Gallery in Chicago opening on September
The "Frigiscare" monster (Kaiju) is a
custom one of a kind color-way hand roto-cast resin prototype from an
original sculpt by Bob Conge. The figure is 9" high with a
removable head that reveals a compartment containing a switched color
changing led unit that illuminates the entire figure in a darkened
room. the Frigiscare monster also has a refrigerator imbedded in his
chest with an opening door.

The Plaseebo and Blobpus collaboration brings the Dokopus together with the Skulloctopus. The "Love at First Sight" set will be offered for purchase on the Plaseebo website store this Friday, August 14th priced at $150 plus shipping.
This is an ultra limited US edition of 15 sets, hand painted by Bob Conge. Each set will contain a Plaseebo "Skulloctopus" figure in clear green vinyl with inset glass eyes and an internal color-changing LED unit with its on/off switch mounted on the outside of the skull. In a darkened room, the LED will illuminate the color gel and glow in the dark brain parts inside the skull.
The set also contains one Blobpus "Dokupus" figure in black vinyl with a clear purple head that has glow in the dark red vinyl brain inside, as well as a glow in the dark skull in his hand and a yellow eye insert. This figure also has an internal color-changing LED unit that illuminates the brain in a darkened room.
Bob Conge's newest figure is called the Mongler Panzer. The ultra limited figure (only 5 pieces) will be available from the Plaseebo web store next Wednesday - June 3rd. Each piece is hand painted, signed and numbered by Bob.
The figure is constructed of a hand cast resin Mongler head with red glass eye inserts and an internal switched color changing LED unit over a hyper detailed plastic panzer. The head turret is poseable and the tracks turn. Each Mongler Panzer measures 3" wide by 6" long by 4.5" high and are priced at $275.
