I am Groot and you can too by watching this video

This isn't so much a collectible as it is a unique art piece, but why should that stop anyone from lusting after it? What you're looking at is a wood carving of Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy, made by artist Griffon Ramse...

Fuller's Warrior King rises photo
Fuller's Warrior King rises
by Brian Szabelski

We haven't heard much from Fuller for a while, as he's been buried in a lot of work. But what's he been up to? Apparently part of that time has been working on this impressive custom Paw, the Warrior King.

Made for a client who wanted a warrior leaping over the Great Wall of China, it's a massive sculpture, replete with a suit of armor and leaping over a monstrous wall base. If you know how big a Paw is on its own (in case you don't, they're 12 inches tall), then the scale of this piece is impressive ... not to mention a lot of the detail work Fuller has worked into the piece.

So far, it's my front runner for the best custom of 2014. What say you?

Nintendo says no to Shapeways while Hasbro says go for it

Shapeways can't catch a break, or maybe it can? Shapeways has a tendency to be a bit controversial, what with its place as a 3D printing hub making use of user-created 3D renders, many of which are based on licensed character...

SDCC 2014: J*RYU talks about the Hatchling
by Pedro Cortes

At the end of last year, the Tomopop editors voted VampyBitMe and J*RYU's Hatchling as best designer figure of 2013. No surprise, as it still is an amazing work of art that just about any game would love to have on their shelf, table, desk, etc.

Walking around on the San Diego Comic Con floor, we happened to bump into J*RYU and got a chance to ask him a couple of questions about his winning figures, as well as the mini-Hatchlings he had on hand for purchase.
