Variant Cover for MWOTR Trade Paperback

June 19th was my 36th Birthday and so I decided to take some time off from business, in that time I received a birthday gift from Jazyl. It was too awesome to not share and so I decided to use it on a small number of prints in the upcoming Reissue of the sold out Trade Paperback.

HIPPOBIO

Now that we are getting more and more into Legends backgrounds we will be adding more updates to our History of the AWF Championship page and this will ultimately tie into a comic Lee and I have planned for later this year or early Spring 2015

Site updates, Mail Away News, and other tidbits

It has been a whirlwind around here since we returned from C2E2. We have bios almost done as well as a few new characters waiting for their debut.

We are currently working triple time to get our Series 2 into production so we can have new figures before Christmas, and without knowing which figures will for sure be in it that effects our overall story. As many of you who have been here from the beginning know we have an overall narrative to our world and figure releases tie into that. So much like the real world of wrestling booking, its fluid and ever-changing. Lee has an overall comic story arch he is working on that is unaffected by this.

We gave a look last week of Ulric 3.0 as he got ready for production, we have some more shots of other characters and if we get the greenlight we will post them but ultimately we don’t want to ruin the surprise of who is up to make the cut into PVC for this next round!

Now onto some general housekeeping affairs. The mailaway figures have been delayed because there was some issues with the card art print getting trimmed that I need to correct so that the artists are given the full credit they deserve. Once that is done the mail away figures will start being mailed. I did not realize it has been nearly 2 full months since we intended to mail them away, because of that I am going to remove the redemption date so pretty much if anyone wants to redeem their tickets for a figure the rest of the year they can. The new ETA for shipping out these mail aways will be around the last week in June.

If you want a Tembo Jiwe figure we are hoping to finish urethane production on those and make them available around Mid July

We also have been in negotiations with many store fronts across America and as soon as things are finalized I will start posting the newest places you can find our product. If all goes well and we continue to make the strides we have so far we will expanding to international markets later this year.

Ulric Wolfrom 3.0 behind the scenes

ulric

We all know what Ulric looks like digitally, sometimes the print does not come out as clear and defined as we would like or details get lost just due to the process of printing. That is where people like Marty “THEGODBEAST” Hansen and Joshua Edwards (True Cast Studio) come in.

It’s a painstaking process and those of you who own MWOTR 5″ Generations Lions know very well how exquisite the end result is.

So I figured it would be neat to show off what that process looks like

Here is the original print

Here was a casting of that print at C2E2, you can see it has quite a bit of detail

Here is what it looks like after the first pass of Josh cleaning it up and refining the details of Simon’s sculpt by hand

Josh will probably do several more passes and castings to obtain the master figure we send to China to be put into the mold, in the end when we release the second series I think a lot of people will appreciate the work Josh did to bring out Simon’s amazing fine details!

Final PVC Series 2 Figure complete

Simon has finished the sculpting of our last figure for PVC Series 2, its on its way to be 3D printed and we will have it by 6/5

We are not going to reveal who it is since we don’t want to ruin the surprise but if everything works out you will see him or her in September/October!

I have also had some backup characters made just on the off chance there is a mold or production issue, our plan on who we want is set but in production nothing is ever guaranteed until the steel is cut and problems/design issues can always creep up.

MWOTR Tag Team Overview 1985-Present

A lot of times people read the bios but don’t remember who the teams are, and without a comic its hard to remember them as easily as we do the singles. We have Lee working on some of that now as we have a 3 comic arc that will flesh out a lot of the story with some of these teams.

So I made this little info sheet that shows all the teams revealed to this point and their names. Now of course there is a huge gap of time missing between Roaring Thunder and Vision, whose time encompassed the Mid 1980’s , and Lapin Loco and the Fortune Seekers who control the landscape now. That is to be expected as our chronology lasts well over 30-40 years and we only have so many resources.tagteammaster
