My Favorite Song

May 29, 2017

Hello! Today is a special day for me. So special that I’ve put together a 5 hour DJ mix up here at any of these links. It took me about two weeks to source the high quality/rare tracks. 723.9 MB zipped file, 95 tracks, all painstakingly arranged according to my inner weirdo. If anyone wonders what my favorite song is, as of 5/29/2017, it’s this one.

It’s a very large file, expect it to take a minute.

Whole Lotta DaDa.

April 30, 2016

This is about M1Go’s DaDa figure from Ultraman. I have painted a run of these Japanese soft vinyl figures with an eye toward costume accuracy, released for the first time ever in this colorway (pretty sure, anyway). These take hours to mask off and paint.

This is a blind box release. You don’t get to choose the contents. I won’t know which figure I’m shipping to you. Each of these figures is a one off. There are three glow in the dark figures, and two that are on peach colored vinyl. One of them is a secret chase.

If you would like to purchase a DaDa figure painted within an inch of its life, go to this link on 5/1/2016 at 12 noon CST.

For more information on this character, please continue reading.

DaDa is a strange-looking monster from the Ultraman series. He’s ultra creepy with his changing size and faces, disappearing and re-appearing all over the place, menacing the stupid, curious humans who are inevitably drawn to its secret, trap-covered lair. (The only reason Science Patrol even found the place was because they encountered the traps. If DaDa had shown a little more restraint perhaps we’d be up to our eyeballs in DaDas by now.)

Here is the incredibly dry summary from the Ultraman Wiki:

“Dada (ダダ) are aliens that attacked Earth and started abducting humans to advance some form of research. The original agent, Agent #271, was killed by Ultraman. The only other Dada to attack Earth was a computer Virus bearing the same name. The members of this race are referred to by their registration number and class, rather then possessing given names.”

“Subtitle: Three Faces Phantom (三面怪人 Sanmen Kaijin)”

Like many Ultraman villains, DaDa is good at scaring scientists, but really bad at everything else. DaDa has no game when it comes to hand-to-hand combat. It spends a lot of time scooting its butt in the dirt. Overall, it’s a pretty shameful display. Don’t take my word for it, watch it right here.

Perhaps it’s DaDa’s giant bucket head that throws it off balance.

At any rate, M1Go (M-ichi-go) made some soft vinyl DaDa figures back in the day. While there are really nicely painted versions of them, these particular figures have never been painted to look like the actual character before. Since 1996 at least, according to the foot stamp. I’m sure the reason for this is that they’re a huge pain in the ass to paint that way. How do I know? Because I have painted six of them that way, so trust me when I say it’s a huge pain in the ass.

They look damned good though.

Look for us and our magical trunks of wonder in Pasadena, California for the next few days. This will be my first convention as a merchant in almost 30 years. I’m willing to bet that I still have what it takes.

If you find yourself at Designer Con, I will be at booth # 1028, with Kanzlers, Homunculords,  Krampuses, posters, buttons, stickers, and custom painted M1Go figures.  My my, we’re bringing a lot of stuff.

If you want to read the Homunculord story thus-far, the link is here. Eventually this will be a full fledged, giant-sized comic book. But for now, this is what I’ve got.

Here’s a preview of the Krotpong Industries toy lineup.

This be the Kanzler.

Homunculords are on the March!

March 22, 2015

Springtime brings rain and flowers all around, the terrible winter rolls away until next time and green life fills all the spaces. In celebration of the receding darkness I’m releasing the Homunculords upon the world. The store HERE will go live at 6:00 p.m. CST on Tuesday, March 24th. The Homunculords will be on kinkeshi (キン消し) colored soft Japanese vinyl, sweetly hand-painted by me, Mr. Krotpong. There are five different figures to a set. Three come dressed in work clothes (look to The Homunculord Story for the ever-unfolding details), the other two are unadorned. The price for the set is $65.00 plus shipping to wherever you are. Shipping overseas is very expensive. Expect to wait up to two weeks for these to be mailed out. Worth it, I’d say. They’re pretty charming in hand. Please, one set per customer.


I painted a Semi Korosiya micro run that is coming out on Friday the 13th.

These bad boys will be up in the webstore at 7 p.m. CST on, you guessed it. Friday the 13th, 2015!

On Patrol.

They are lovingly hand-painted by me, using… at least a dozen colors.

Many thanks to Adam from Cop a Squat Toys, for letting me paint these monsters. It was really fun!
