Xarkax the Traveler from Mikie Graham

xarkax 1

Mikie Graham aka Zombiemonkie has completed his latest custom Blobpus. Named "Xarkax the Traveler", the vinyl piece has been hand painted and airbrushed by the artist.

The character's back story looks something like the following:

Forcing his way through the dimensional drift into our perceived reality, Xarlax the traveler moves amongst us unseen. Eyes sewn shut for eons, Xarlax has traveled his life in complete darkness. Perceiving the beauty of countless unknown worlds through mystical conduit of the crystal eyes embedded in his trusty human skull and only friend "Yorick."

brent nolasco blamo

The Brent Nolasco and Blamo resin project will be introduced at the Tenacious Toys booth (#2878) at the 2010 New York Comic Con. Brent, who wanted the process of making figures and products to be more of a fine art than mass production, took a more "hands on" approach to the creation of the first piece - Mijo (My Child).

First, the piece was sculpted by hand, something he had never done before. The figure consists of 6 pieces that are hand cast separately and then assembled Each piece has been hand painted by Brent so there are slight variations in each paint job.

The runs on these upcoming figures are going to be limited quantities. This one is only limited to 6 pieces, with each 5.5" tall resin figure selling for $300.
