NEW PIGUMON!

Hey Hey!

Random update about a release I think people will be psyched about!

Thousand Toys (Toys to Art) will be selling a new version of the RAMPAGE TOYS Ultra Kaiju Series' Pigumon THIS FRIDAY!

This guy:


This dude is the first painted GID release of this figure.  Alas, the sale will be for Japan only, but I'm sure those of you who know this monster toy business will have a way around that road block.

Drop will be this Friday (4/20) here:


Not 100% sure about the time of the release....  best to check ye ol' Instagram.

While I'm typing here I might as well say some other stuff --->

This Friday will also see the public release of some pretty pretty Aurora (holographic) glitter figures AND new Ugly Club enrollment - in the RAMPAGE webshop.  Drop will be up around 10 AM.  There are lots of glitter dudes available, and the Ugly Club slots will be available through Next Monday, or until they are all gone.  I'm trying to sort out T-shirts to order for this, but not 100% sure what/if, so I'm not 100% sure about pricing to join.  It'll be a toy, goodies and stuff bundle.  Current club members will also be able to order the shirts if they wish too (IF I get them sorted out!).

Ok, that's a lot of ifs.  Enough for now!

Thanks for reading.

Double Post Day. Post #2. NEW Release of the RT x Medicom Toy Godzilla!

Wasting no time!  Here's some more info for you to read whilst delaying work and other tasks that 'you should be doing' 😋

Coming soon is the newest release off the RAMPAGE x MEDICOM TOY Shoudai (aka Original) Godzilla!




This version of the figure is painted as an homage to the vintage Bullmark Hawaii Godzilla Colorway.  The base is a light flesh color (typical of the type used in most doll manufacturing facilities), which is coated extensively with a sky blue color and then accented with silver sprays.

As you can see in the above photos, I painted a few figures in an attempt to best match the blue that is found on the original Bullmark figures.  Trouble is, it's not so easy to know if I'm matching the 'real' original color or if I'm just matching the color as its come to look after the many many years of aging.  In the end though I went for the middle ground (figure in the center of the pics).

I have a collector to thank for the photo references of the vintage figure as well as discussions about the final choice on which blue suits the homage best.  So - thanks man - you know who you are.

The release will be an open order, with the figures shipping by the end of July.  Order window is 3/24 through 4/30/2018.

All release info is now available in numerous Japanese Publications, including the Sofubi Tokyo Blog, and the upcoming issue of Hyper Hobby.  This release is limited to sales within Japan, so you will need to find an assist if you are unable to use a Japanese address.  

I'm hoping to offer an AP release of this version as I did with the first release.  Time will tell though.

Well, thats all the typing I have in me for the day.  Hope you've enjoyed!

RAMPAGE GODZILLA UPDATE!

TEST SHOTS ARE UP!

Still waiting on the box with these test shots in it (can't come soon enough - kinda like Christmas!), but I got a few crummy pictures to hold me over at least!




Hopefully more to report soon.  Cannot wait to sling some paint on a couple of these dudes!

Oh - right - one thing...  For those of you who were bummed about the initial pre-order being unavailable for people outside of Asia, I will be getting a small batch of AP figures in that first color.  I will be signing the headers and puting together a little package with extras to go along with those AP's.  Maybe...February?  I'll update on yonder Instagram of course.

Thanks for checking in!

p.s. Below are some pics of recently released RAMPAGE ULTRA KAIJU!  There are still 3 WOO available in the webshop, but the Red Kings and Pigumon went fast.  Thank you everyone for the support recently!  Always appreciated!
