We're all done!!!
Start checking the Argonaut Resins (http://argonautresins.bigcartel.com/) store noon Eastern time today to order your Vladimir resin toy. We have also revealed the last 3 variant colors (11 -13* heh - 13 is a little different from 11 and 12*) - surprise surprise!!!
Before we begin I just wanted to say a big thanks to Jared Deal for going all out with this project. When I told him about my new little company and what I wanted to do with it he got it big time and jumped right in, and by gosh - took off! He even transformed the original idea into what it is now...a darn cool representation of his 2D artwork and design. I had a few restrictions on how the design needed to be so we could keep this thing on good budget and he said - no big deal and that he could work with that no problem (what a guy)...and here we are today releasing this fun Halloween inspired happy bat toy...with that said I'll just add a "we'll be back!" Jared is like a art machine...already showing me some more fantastic toy ideas (does this guy sleep???)...heh...also keep an eye on the that little Argonaut links list on the right side here as we just added another artist who has decided to take the infamous boat ride in search of more Golden Fleece art projects....noon baby...the clock is ticking!
The master at work...

Jared Deal & Argonaut Resins bring you this very limited special Halloween release!!! Each Vladimir figure is hand cast & hand painted making each toy unique & special. Vladimir comes packed in his very own felt lined coffin display box which is also handmade, painted & numbered. The interior of each coffin will match it's accompanying Vlad figure. For example... if you pull a green figure your coffin will have green details, etc. To top it all off the figure will also come complete with a certificate of authenticity signed by Jared Deal (designer) and Eric Nocella (sculptor). Each certificate will come in a wax sealed envelope.
The edition size is 13. The first 10 will be made available at the Argonaut Resins web store... http://argonautresins.bigcartel.com/ on Oct. 31st (Halloween) at 12 noon EST. Each figure stands 5 inches tall with the coffin measuring 5 1/2 inches.
You get all of this for $70 - plus shipping*. So forget the kids in costume, treat yourself this Halloween. Just be sure to grab yours before the Argonaut Resins store is sucked dry!
Text on back of box reads...
" It sure can be lonely living the life of a vampire. It's hard making friends when you have to sleep during the day... when your curfew is everyone elses wake-up call.
Vlad has been searching for the past 177 years for the perfect candidate to turn vamp... giving his own, very literal translation to the term BFF.
Wanna be his friend??? It only hurts for a second."
