Otto Bjornik, Jeremiah Ketner collab on two custom figures

I'm a fan of Otto Bjornik and Jeremiah Ketner's work, so when news of a collaboration between the two emerged, I was immediately interested. Otto and Jeremiah have painted up a 7-inch Munny and 7-inch Trikky in a mish-mash of...

Don't be fooled, this is an amazing custom Gundum kit

One of the most exciting things about this hobby is seeing others thinking outside the box. Sure, anyone can slap paint on a model kit, and some do an amazing job at it, but then you get pieces like this that are just too epi...

The corner booth at DesignerCon that housed Scott Tolleson, Lana Crooks, and Carson Catlin had a eye-catching combination of plushes and figures, both original and customized. It also had several tantalizing con-exclusives available for purchase to attendees. Scott's Kookie Glo Good (seen in the header) was a special glow-in-the-dark version of his Kookie No Good vinyl toy. Completing the lifecycle of the Deadbeet plush, an artist collaboration between Lana and Scott, is the Beetling, exclusive to DesignerCon.

While Carson did not have an exclusive for sale, his custom figures more than made up for it. He also had blind boxes of some of his Micro-Munny figures. There were even some extra prizes involved, depending on what figure was in your box. It was a really clever idea.

DesignerCon 2014: jellykoe
by Natalie Kipper

I'm not going to lie; I have a soft spot for jellykoe's Tox City line. The series of plushes were a big success on Kickstarter and I adored their New York Comic Con exclusive addition as well. Kelly and J. Spencer Shull brought several Tox City citizens with them to last weekend's DesignerCon along with an extra-special one: Gillbert - Big Katuna Edition. The exclusive mutant came dressed in swim shorts and felt sunglasses, carrying a hand-painted wooden surfboard. He even comes in a different shade than the original Gillbert, as if he got a tan. As an added bonus, he can be dressed and undressed as you please. He was a riot!

In addition to the Tox City plushes, there was also a display of J. Spencer's paintings and custom figures. You can purchase and see more of jellykoe's work on their website.

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...
