Design your own Tuttz and win from Argonaut Resins
by Vanessa Cubillo

To celebrate his birthday, creator of Argonaut Resins, END, has decided to hold a design contest. On social media, he announced that he will be having a Tuttz art contest where fans can win a Tuttz mini. If you want to enter, download the art template shown and let your creativity take over!

You can color this by hand, use your computer, even alter the Tuttz design a bit; just make sure you can still tell it’s a Tuttz. When you’re finished, email your design to Argonaut Resins. This contest will run until August 31, and if there are a lot of entires there could be more prizes.

SDCC 2014: Sideshow Collectibles - statues and maquettes part 2

Continuing with Sideshow coverage, here's the rest of their licensed statues and maquettes. Star Wars characters featured heavily, as did Marvel. The booth also had a smattering of horror and other movie characters. Most of the experience is about simply gaping in awe at the larger scale figures (especially the legendary scale ones). Click through for the gallery!

A look at DKE's 2014 SDCC exclusives photo
A look at DKE's 2014 SDCC exclusives
by Brian Szabelski

So DKE Toys have already shown off their exclusives from Motorbot and Scott Wilkowski ... but there are far, far more coming to their booth this year (#5045). So many, in fact, that it's rather impractical to do individual posts for all of them. 

Of course, that's exactly what we've done, and as it turns out, there's a lot of Star Wars-themed pieces that will be at their booth. Particularly, Boba and Jango Fett-themed ones, mixed in with a bunch of resin releases from smaller figure makers and individual artists. 

Check out the full list of all the other planned releases after the jump!

UPDATE: Celebrate Star Wars with Artmymind's Storm Samurai photo
UPDATE: Celebrate Star Wars with Artmymind's Storm Samurai
by Brian Szabelski

Not everyone celebrates May the 4th in the same manner, and Artmymind have chosen to celebrate Star Wars with a new piece, Storm Samurai. Obviously styled on the Stormtrooper helmet with some influence from Japanese kabutos, the 3-inch-by-3-inch-by-2-inch piece has been cast in both resin (matte black and matte white) and a shiny metal version. It's a very clean look, not too outside of what Artmymind usually creates, and it looks just as awesome as their custom work.

The matte black and white samurai heads are US$49 each, while the metal version is US$69 each. You can find all three in Artmymind's shop this very moment.

[UPDATE: The Storenvy shop is down at the moment, so you can buy them from Artmymind's BigCartel shop. They've also decided to throw in a slight discount to make up for the inconvenience: the matte black and white versions are €30 each, and the metal version €42.]
