Mikie Graham will be taking part in the Power Rangers 20th Anniversary Show being held at Toy Art Gallery (December 7th 2013). For the show, he created a 30" Power Ranger custom - Demon Ranger - as well as 12 mini canvases using the Great Gosei mold he created for the figure. Each 4"x4" mini canvas includes the Gosei held on by magnets.
All of these will be available to purchase at the show or online.
Here's how Mikie describes his work on the Demon Ranger:
I did my best to keep the original shape of the iconic power ranger figure, tweaking the sculpt as little as possible... that being said, you may notice a few changes.
First off I removed "the Great Gosei" mask from the Ranger's belt, molded him, then added my resin cast Gosei masks to four key locations on my design. I choped off the origional face to sculpt in the new snake face (including 2 real teeth) then using the Ranger's original face I mounted it to his back to create the bug looking demon that you can see from behind. Finally a few minor sculpted details transformed the Rangers feet into monsters of their own.... shoes that Gene Simmons himself would be envious of! The rest was all hand painted using the contours of the rangers body as my guide. To finish him off I gave his massive cyclopean eyeball a good dose of gloss spray giving it that realistic wet look.
The first item is a set of four Waterless Snow Globes. Each one contains a festive Jellybot and a whole lot of glitter for $45.00.
There will also be four Micro Jellybot Reindeers. You'll be able to pick one up for $20.00.

Tomorrow, Wednesday December 4th 2013, at Noon PT, Toy Art Gallery will be releasing a new project with legendary toy designer Tim Clarke - the TOTIMS. Tim was once known as the King of Gross after co-creating Sectaurs (Coleco) and Boglins (Mattel) in the 1980s.
Each TOTIMS set consists of a total of 4 interchangeable parts which can be rearranged into multiple configurations: one top, two sectionals 1 bottom, plus two connectors and an extra top cap. All combined, they stand around 12 inches tall. The debut TOTIMS release is cast in a pink soft vinyl (made in Japan). Am I the only one who sees a giant disturbing phallus?
For millions of years the TOTIMS have lived around us in virtual obscurity. Many thought that they were idols of a long lost primitive society depicted in stone. Little did we know that they are living, breathing creatures and they are tired of living in the shadows. Beware the rise of the TOTIMS! The Totims are made up of a highly classified society, with Kings, Generals, soldiers, and underlings. Many have said that those who possess TOTIMS derive certain powers to change the world around them. All we know is those that do have an uncanny power over those who don’t.
