Urban Underground Project: Wheaty Wheat
Not only was Wheaty Wheat one of the sponsors (and founders) of the Vinyl Toy Network's Urban Underground Project, but they also had a booth at the show. The event took place this past Friday and Saturday, in close proximity to San Diego's Comic Con. Admission was free and they even had a shuttle running between Jerome's (aka The Factory) and SDCC.
On display at the WWS booth were several prototypes. The next two planned releases are Joe Ledbetter's Ringo Bear and Sket's Buckeye Rot. (Notice the hand changes on Buckeye) Following them will be Brandt Peters' Ink Slinger No. 5, Kathie Olivas' Violet and Brian Taylor's Jack Rabbit. The extra large Cleabus was used for Brian McCarty's photo shoot and won't actually be produced...unfortunately.
Wheaty Wheat also had prototypes from a few of their new artists - Kerry Horvath and Darth Rimmer (Evil Ice Cream) and Luke Feldman (Mai). The Mai figure looks amazing. A terrific sculpt that really mimics Feldman's artwork.
