Due to scheduling difficulties, I wasn't able to get a question post up. My deepest apologies, dearest Tomocast listeners. To make up for it, I brought on a trio of guests that will surely entertain you. To...
Erick Scarecrow has dropped a few new pieces in his shop to kick off April. However, one of them is already sold out: the S.Maria Vio, which features Maria in a seafoam green and lilac paint scheme. It was a one-off, so ...
ESC-Toy has a bunch of new releases that popped into his shop this morning to round out February, and here's a rundown of what was made available:
A new colorway for the Dali x Crow Bear figure, the Silver Hour variant, cast in semi-clear resin and handpainted. Limited to 25 pieces, US$35 each.
A new S.Maria colorway, the Cooki variant that features her in cookie-colored overalls. Sadly, she's already out of stock, limited to 12 pieces at US$200 each.
Still in stock, though, is the Mini Meekay Darling Meese. The Mickey Mouse-inspired vinyl figure is handpainted, with only one of these available at US$150. You get a matching Giclee print that's also a one-off.
Finally, we have the Kissaki Soul Steal variant. Limited to 3 pieces at US$400 each, it's a handpainted version of the regular resin Kissaki in a blue and purple palette.
Any of these up your alley, Tomopop readers and ESC fans?
ESC-Toy is wrapping up January with a few new figures, and chief among them is a new 6-inch Wet Suit Soopa Maria. This pink colorway of Soopa Maria is a 200-piece run, but 20 lucky folks who pick this figure up will get a Giclee print with her. You'll be able to pick one up on Thursday, Jan. 31, at 11 a.m. Eastern (8 a.m. Pacific, 4 p.m. GMT) for US$45.
Also in the store Thursday is a one-off custom piece, a bright red Meekay Elias Meese. The 9-inch-tall figure is indeed a little bit inspired by Mickey Mouse, and he comes with a special art print if you pick him up. That won't be cheap; the price is US$400, and it'll be in the shop at 11 a.m. Eastern (8 a.m. Pacific, 4 p.m. GMT).
In the store right now, though, is Classicko Upchuck. Limited to 15 resin pieces, the 6-inch Upchuck character is in a grayscale palette, but his vomit piece comes in a translucent pink-to-purple colorway. The price for adding this barfing clown fellow to your collection is US$150.
What are your thoughts on these three, and do you want to pick any up? I love that Meekay, but I'm not sure I have the US$400 to spend on him, nor the Internet connection to beat the other Erick Scarecrow fans to the punch.
ESC-toy and Frombie's latest collaboration, Chelly Chainsaw x Zora Pearl Face, will be available to purchase tomorrow in extremely limited amounts (only 11 pieces total). This 6 inch tall mash-up is made of resin and is hand-...
ESC-Toy has some new releases for 2013, and they're starting off with a few golden creations. First, let's get the repaint out of the way and talk about the golden Play Arts Kai Nathan Drake that has been handpainted by Erick. It's limited to 3 pieces and the real selling point is probably the 11-by-17 Giclee that comes with it. They'll be US$350 if you want one Friday in the ESC Shop.
Now, let's talk the bigger news: also coming this week is a collaboration with Scott Tolleson, the Papa Sama Akuma! At US$200 and limited to 17 pieces, it is totally adorable thanks to Scott's design work on top of Erick's sculpt. Especially with those big eyes, right? Two golden variants will also be in the mix as prizes for those to buy Papa Sama Akuma.
Both releases will be done at 11 a.m. Eastern (8 a.m. Pacific, 5 p.m. GMT). I think I might go for Papa Sama Akuma ... how about you?
Over at eBay, a very special auction is closing in on its last few hours. One of ESC-toy's iconic figures of Nathan Drake from Naughty Dog's Uncharted series was signed by games' staff and put up for bidding to benefit Child'...
Erick Scarecrow and ESC-Toy have just dropped a bunch of new releases in the ESC-Toy Shop, and it's a nice line-up for those of you who are fans of designer toys, the urban look or just Erick's own work. They're also just in time for the holidays if you want to get a gift for someone else ... or yourself. Don't worry, we won't tell.
New in the shop are:
Flying Crow Crow Bear by ESC-Toy and Moriya (Six pieces, US$300), the latest 6.5-inch resin figure to come out of ESC-Toy's studio; anyone who buys this figure also gets two prints with their purchase
A new Monster Kolor x ESC colorway of Dizign known as Gaizer Dizign (12 pieces, US$130) that comes with an 8.5-by-11 Giclee print (Erick notes that the print has extremely graphic elements which some collectors might find offensive)
The next ESC/Frombie collab colorway, which is the blue Tunic Kami x Sama (20 pieces; cast in resin; US$30), which comes with a matching Frombie pin while supplies last
Fresh from the ESC-Toy shop is a new colorway of the Soopa Jr. Coin-Up figure, this one cast in a clear cherry resin. Limited to just 8 pieces, it features the same arcade machine-inspired design we've seen before but in a lollipop or cough drop-colored hue. Seriously, they look like candy ... but please, please don't lick them. I don't think licking resin is good for you.
In any case, you can pick up these signed and numbered pieces in the ESC-Toy Shop right now for US$45 each. For you ESC and Erick Scarecrow fans out there, are you digging this colorway?
