DESTROYER update...

Almost done with all the DESTROYER castings (20 of 25 are now complete!) I'm shipping a second batch to O_Negative today...tints are next! The Three /Gold Coin prototype is now complete and is being cast and molded. Right after that will be the Sam Fout's Bone Ghost Agency project.

There are no more Lord Mesa Kalua Moola's being released - we topped off at 30 pieces when we increased the Artist Crossover Series to 11 participants. So if you want a Moola now's the time (what's left is in the online store) - more customs are the way so stay tuned...

DESTROYER in resin...

Okay enough with the hootnanny - here's a few shots of O_Negative's - DESTROYER in tinted blue and pink resin. I shipped off a batch of all white ones to O_Negative and he's sending those off to artists he asked to paint them up. I'll have a group shot up later on. I'm not a fan of one colorway so don't be surprised if you see all sorts of renditions on this guy. I'll have a couple of slots available for a few customs and the call for customizers will be very soon (got to finish casting them all up first). Watch the blog for the announcement.

Run for your lives....

Okay - I managed to secure some video images from the security cameras from inside the building where my studios is...Management hedged a bit, gave me a little grief but they let me have what I needed to satiate my nervous curiousity. WARNING - the last few images are quite startling...

Well I'll'd he open that door??? Look how high that doorknob is....

Heh...I thought this guy was supposed to be able to phase in and out and be able to transport from place to place? Hmmm...very strange him walking around like that - what gives?

Yup - that's him. Made it through that dark ass hallway...heh...the hell is he going?

Eeeep!!! That's the exit!!! O_Negative's gonna kill me.

Holey!!! That's why he couldn't transport yet - he's too new! Is that crackling energy?!

OMG!!! Look how bright it got outside! It was almost midnight when this guy vanished...Anyone see a tremendous light flash anywhere near the New Jersey area??? DESTROYER is loose - run for your lives!!!

Uh oh....

I was casting the DESTROYER designer resin for artist O_Negative and it looks like things are not what they seem. Took a quick phone call on my cell and turned my back for a minute or two and...where did the casting of DESTROYER go!!!...Uh oh...

Don't remember taking him out of the mold...

I did notice a trail resin debris leading towards the shop door that wasn't there earlier...wait a minute...

Nothing in the hallway...I'll have to check with the building management tomorrow and see if they caught anything on the hidden security cameras all around the building...
