CS Moore Studio has developed a reputation as being a producer of highly detailed statues featuring lots of lovely ladies and comic book heroes and villains, but their booth this year featured a few new items we might not expect to see. Most of these new items also happened to pop up after our visit at C2E2 in April, and they're led by a little vinyl dog.
What are you waiting for? Hit the jump to check everything out!
First, there's Mondo-Chi, the designer toy CS Moore announced before the show to my surprise. Based on their real-life Chihuahas, Mondo-Chi is a 3-inch vinyl toy that debuted at SDCC with the blank version. However, you might notice more Mondo-Chis in our gallery; those are a tease of things to come, as CS Moore will be releasing three Mondo-Chi lines this fall. The Spectrum Series will features Mondo-Chi in many colors; the Spot Series will feature the regular-looking Mondo-Chi with differences to his fur patterning and coloring; and finally, the Adventure Series will feature Mondo-Chi in all different kinds of costumes. That last series is based on what he might be dreaming about doing when he's not up and about the house, like fighting pirates or exploring space.
Also in the plans are action figures coming this fall and winter based on original characters and original designs from CS Moore Studio. A red Alice in Wonderland figure was the other SDCC exclusive for the booth, but I quite like these Jurassic Strike Force 5 figures myself. Dinosaurs with guns? Yes, please!
But of course, there's always the girl statues that Clay apparently loves sculpting. One of the new ones coming this December features Dean Yeagle's pin-up character Mandy and her dog Skoots, with Skoots causing poor Mandy a little bit of trouble. I acutally really like how Skoots is kind of looking back, as if he knows he's being a little troublemaker. The two-piece set will be available for US$199.
And then there's ... sports? Yes, as CS Moore has a college football bust series, which is kicking off with four cat mascots from BYU, LSU, Clemson and Memphis. The busts on display were all a bit similar with individual tweaks to differentiate them, but they looked pretty good. I'm interested to see what they're going to end up with if they eventually get to Bowling Green, which will probably be around ... 2025 because we're not that big of a school. Still, if you're interested, these busts are running about US$60 each.
