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.
Almost finished. There are a very few versions of each. Painted are $100.00 plus $10.00 shipping domestically. $40.00 for international.
Blank and mixed-parts are $85.00 with the same shipping rates as above.
Friday, August 2nd. 7:00 P.M. CDT. At the webstore here.
Coming up for sale on Saturday at 11 am-ish. All of these pictures are taken by JM Rampage, all of the paint applied to the Killer Krampuses by JM Rampage as well!
“RAMPAGE Killer Krampus and Mischief Maker. At #rampagestudios tomorrow, online Saturday around 11AM. Green vinyl – lots and lots of paint, chains and bells 😛 edition of 15 – 3 GID vinyl chase figures mixed in there. Weapon not shown here.”
It will be for sale here. Come to where the flavor is tainted by Killer Krampus! Ahhhhhh.
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.
Hello! During these trying holiday times I like to think about the Krampus, an ancient, mythical Germanic beast. As the legend goes, on December 6th, Saint Nicholas brings out all the toys and candy for the good little boys and girls. Everyone sings songs, eats a ton of good food, and has a huge party. Everything is great!
Part of the reason it’s so great (aside from all the presents and general mirth) is because, a day earlier, all the wicked little children get a visit from the Krampus, who brings coal, terror, and a beating. With sticks. And chains. He might even abduct a particularly evil child, to be eaten at a later date. So with the bad children all dealt with, the good children can rest easy for another year.
It is my strong personal belief that the world needs the Krampus, in toy form. To help remind the bad that they need to try to be good. Or…Krampus.
So, coming early in 2013, I’m bringing it to the world, lovingly rendered in soft Japanese vinyl. It will be available in limited quantities for purchase by Krampus lovers everywhere.
At approximately 9 inches tall, well articulated and with a surprise or two along for the ride, it will be a tiny titan, a silent, small statured sentinel, standing sentry over the lives of the lucky. Evil beware! More to follow.
