The Tuttz Mini's are coming!

Just a little teaser for the blind boxed Tuttz Mini's I have in progress. Series 1 (Edition size of 25) will start dropping next week and will include all sorts of colors and styles like clear tints, solids, metallics, jades, pearls, renders and GID's. Some of the Mini's will match the regular larger Tuttz figures that were released last year and earlier this year. Stay tuned for info on this all new Tuttz series. Blind boxing has just gone catty!

Pics of the day part 7...

I love when collectors send me photos of their growing collections of Argonaut Resins goodies. It warms the heart to see all the different color ways from various releases together in combinations even I haven't seen. Thank you! (Please send more!!!)

Pharaoh Hound...?

I debuted the Pharaoh Hound rough sculpt at Toy Fair as part of my live sculpting demo of working in toy wax. He'll be a companion piece for the regular sized Tuttz figurine and stands at eight inches in height. There will also be a different third figure (?) to round out the line that will tie into a illustrated book based on Tuttz I'm developing with Robert Garrett (my indie publishing biz partner from Xmoor Studios). The hound will look a bit different when completed and I will post those images when he's done.

Toy Fair Sneak Peek!

I have to say Toy Fair NYC this year has been a blast so far. I've met some really nice people who came by the Argo table to say hello and talk shop. Below are a few pics my table during early morning set ups before the crowds of industry people showed up. More soon.

Is that the Pharaoh Hound in progress on the table...?

True story...about Phase 2.

I have big plans this year on expanding Argonaut Resins and producing more projects and lose lots of sleep on exactly how I'm going to do that. I had planned to get the Tuttz resin cat figure digitally scanned and make a computer CG file so I could scale it up to any size I wanted (it would be nice to have a 2 - 3 footer at the upcoming shows this year). To make a long story short - I ran into my good friend Steve Talkowski (creator of the uber cool SketchBot vinyl toy robot - CG grandmaster etraordinaire) at an art show and I had told him my plans of expansion. Steve offered to rebuild the Tuttz from scratch in CG so I wouldn't have to scan it and clean up the file to make my life easier. Of course I accepted his gracious offer as this would give me more time to work on new stuff (and finish projects other projects). I now have the ability to scale the Tuttz resin cat up to ANY size I want and will do a post here soon on how the output was done after Toy Fair this upcoming weekend. So now I have Phase 2 of Argonaut Resins under way starting with this little guy below - look familiar...?

Tuttz mini anyone? Blindboxed? Hmmm....

I'm also working on the Tuttz blue jades as sneaked peaked below and if you want to see more of Argonaut Resins Phase 2 projects I will be revealing them (works in progress) at Toy Fair NYC (Jacob Javitts Center) this upcoming weekend Feb. 13th - 16th. I'll have a table at the Creative Factor booth #4828. Much Thanks to Brett Klisch - Mr. Organizer and good friend.

Wave 2 Red Tuttz release date!

The last wave of the ToysRevil Exclusive Red Tuttz have arrived and are ready for launch!

These last six Tuttz will be available Monday Feb. 7th at 9PM est. in the Argonaut Resins online store.
