REVIEW: Space Crab

IMG_6996

Background

One of the newest figures released by Wheaty Wheat Studios is the Space Crab designed by Pixelfillu. While there’s not a lot of background information on the character, you can deduce by looking at the vinyl piece (and by its name) that these are giant crabs dressed in space suits. The piece was released in four different colorways – red, green, white and black.

The figure is packaged in a window-front box that features Space Crab artwork on three of the panels (the sides and back). There is no background information included about the character.  And each figure is contained in dual plastic trays.

REVIEW: Buckeye Rot

IMG_6931

Background

It’s been over three years since we caught our first peek at Sket One’s crazy tomato character – Buckeye Rot.  If you remember, it followed Sket’s other produce related vinyl…the giant eggplant – Eggster.  And it was just recently that Wheaty Wheat Studios released the Buckeye Rot rotocast vinyl.

This is one of the best packaging jobs that we’ve seen recently. Each figure comes in a wooden crate that’s filled with shredded paper…to make a bed for the Buckeye Rot figure.  While there is no background reading on the crate, there is that great, weathered sticker that reads Buckeye Rot Pickled for Freshness.

Wheaty Wheat Studios will be releasing the Glow-in-the-Dark Black Buckeye Rot at NY Comic Con - only at the My Plastic Heart booth.  Sket will be there for signing at 2:00PM Saturday, so you might want to get that killer packaging signed by the artist himself. MPH will also hold a raffle for a Regular AP (Artist Proof) Ringo Bear. You'll get a raffle ticket with the purchase of the Buckeye Rot figure.

VTN and Toy Crazy Shows

Wheaty Wheat has announced a pair of new shows that they'll be a part of.   Of course, the VTN Dec show is just around the corner.   This 2 day event at the Pasadena Convention Center will include a custom show among other events.  These photos are of the Vinnie custom.

They'll also be taking part in the “Toy Crazy” Show at the Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, NC.   The show is on view from October 15th until February 1st.   The opening reception will be on Thursday November 7th, from 7P until 9PM (6PM to 7PM for members).

A wildly diverse and irreverent selection of toys and games, from vintage mechanicals, Star Wars, GI Joe and Transformers to contemporary Japanese vinyl and plush toys—this exhibition is a reminder that there should always be time to play! Wheaty Wheat’s contribution to the show is the original paint master and approved test shot of Mr Bunny produced by Wheaty Wheat Studios, from the 2D works of Joe Ledbetter, along with the production Roto cast molds and spray masks from the Mr Bunny figure.
