Hayato and Ganba by Osamu Koyama of Complete Technique
Let's start with the customs from the header. Here, we've gt Hayato (the Foomi) and Ganba (the Kracka) by Osamu Koyama. Holy cow, are these beautiful. Not only do I love the rusted/patched together look, but on the bottom, each has a custom base with an engraved brass plate. It's as if Osamu has combined elements of several artists I like together and added his own custom touches to these two. These will be at Kidrobot New York ... anyone want to check and see how much they cost for me? Pretty please?
Custom Spiki and Skitty Foomis by Nakanari
Appearing at Kidrobot Miami will be these two Foomis from Nakanari. They both feature designs his fans should be familiar with: Skitty and Spiki. Perhaps we should have expected them, especially Skitty, since he's been doing a series of Skittys on different platforms lately.
Custom Foomi by Dave White
Across the pond, we've got this World War II-inspired Foomi from Dave White. It's known I'm a sucker for vinyl that's based on the machinery of war, but I especially like the weathering and welding spots Dave's applied to this piece. This one will be at Kidrobot London.
Custom Foomi by MCA
Appearing at Kidrobot New York, MCA's Foomi is very speckled and features a face moved up a bit from where you'd expect it. Not really my style, but not bad. You guys like this one?
Custom Foomi by Luke Chueh
Kidrobot Los Angeles is playing host to this custom Foomi from Luke Chueh. Luke's gone with a perhaps obvious choice on concept, using the Foomi's long hair as flames for his flaming Foomi. But still, it's execution that matters, and Luke always does a great job with that. This piece is no exception, as it's got an oil painting feel to it, with some smooth transitions and blending.
Mexican Standoff Foomi by Stuart Witter
Another Foomi, which really is proving to be the popular choice for show pieces. This one's form Stuart Witter and features a Foomi who's sharply dressed and packing heat in both paws. I love the little detail on the grenade pin in his mouth: I don't want to be the custom at Kidrobot London standing next to this one when that grenade goes off!
Tricanthrope by Triclops Studios
Kidrobot London will also be home to Tricanthrope, a wolf creature with attitude. And a bit of a drooling problem, it appears. He also comes with a silver bullet accessory, should he prove to be causing too much trouble. But we hope the folks at KR London won't have to use it!
Nuggywolf by Ian Ziobrowski
Finally, we finish this edition off with a Kracka (seems there's so few of these!) that will be at Kidrobot New York. Ian's got the whole werewolf theme going on here, maybe a lumberjack werewolf because of the plaid shirt? We can only hope. Check out one detail in particular, though: he's sculpted all the teeth on the wolf's upper jaw among other parts, which is great to see..
