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.
The Homunculords are coming soon! This race of lesser mordlings are some of the tiny cogs in the vast, incredibly brutal bureaucratic machine on the planet Galwyn, in the Denztek Galaxy. They are the little workers and prophets who toil and tremble for the dreaded, mighty Kanzler Sägrid Arschloch (not shown), Chancellor of the Realm and Decimator of the Guilty.
Here are Klor’en and Vrinsdi in their official robes preparing for the day’s hard labor ahead. Mountains of paperwork will have to be pushed, filed, and burned in order for the incredible metropolis of Grapinoid to run smoothly enough to wage eternal war with every other nation on Galwyn.
Relaxing time! Everyone is waiting for the Disemboweled Redeemer on the table to die, but he never will! He will only live, day in, day out, just barely retaining his guts and internal organs. In this way he is a Holy Man.
My God, sometimes it’s so hard to look at yourself in the mirror.
This will be up for purchase soon at my webstore. HERE. There will be some other items of interest as well. Stop by!
JM Rampage is a Tokyo based toymaker and an excellent painter of toys. Here is an example of some of his fine work.
He is painting the next Killer Krampus release. This Krampus will be a deep green vinyl, with some glow in the dark chase figures scattered through. The run will be sold in a blind bag at the Blobpus X Splurrt show – opening July 5th in Tokyo. He will have them up on-line on July 6th, here!
Here are some close up shots filled with all sorts of awesome.
As an added bonus (for me, anyway), the Killer Krampus will appear in the July issue of Hyper Hobby, an amazing Japanese toy and model magazine. Flipping through this magazine gives me the same warm feelings I used to get looking at the Sears Catalog Wishbook back in the day. Only much more weird. And in Japanese.
Anyway, to actually appear in the pages of Hyper Hobby is a huge plate of delicious HELL YES, that I am looking forward to consuming with gusto.
Many thanks to JM Rampage for being awesome!
I am getting very close to the finished Krampus figure. Here is the test-pull fresh from the molds. As I sculpted it in parts, this is also the first time I have seen it assembled in all its glory. FEAST YOUR EYES!
This figure is still in Japan, it is ready for its brothers to be cast in glorious vinyl.
I have recently received the wax preview for my Krampus figure. It still needs to be jointed, after that it will be ready for casting. As it turns out, there will be a lot more articulation than I had originally planned for, which is an awesome bonus for the end user. Everywhere there is a separate piece, there will be a mobile joint. The wrists, shoulders, neck, waist, and hips will have super-poseability. Spiffy!
Including the two pieces for the bundle of birch sticks and the two pieces for the omake, the part count is 13. A little ambitious, but it should be just that much more fun to play around with. We are rolling right along.
