Cage, Belts and more!

It has been an exciting week so far, multiple projects are moving forward

We are closer to the final prototype of Molie to be sent to China for possible production

The 1st working prototype for the Steel Cage has arrived, there are some adjustments we are making and will get the 2nd prototype done in Blue. More on the cage later this week including some shots of it in action. We are not quite sure how to offer it, and it will most likely not be cheap. But at least it will exist, one step at a time I suppose 🙂

Some have been in the works for years, some will be revealed in the coming weeks.

As we near our 3rd Anniversary we are full steam ahead, could a new Evolution be on its way….

MWOTR Playsets and Accessories

As we near our 3rd Birthday we hope to reveal something that we have been working on since the first concept art.

We currently have rings we import from China in bulk, and we have a playmat that gives a sort of arena. But I have never been satisfied to just stop there.

While I can’t reveal anything too specific just know that the closer we get to your 3rd birthday the closer this may become a reality in your collections 😉

We are also hard at work on some new playmats, but they coincide with Volumes 5 and 6 of the Comic so releasing them now would ruin the fun 🙂

Oh yeah and this happened at the Studio the other day….

Funko art

In the toy industry you get to meets lots of people. So when I found out my friend Reis O’Brien (lead designer at Funko) was doing some art prior to SDCC, I lept at the chance for him to conceptualize one of my guys as a Pop! Vinyl.

MWOTR Series 3 reveal & Goliath sold out!

While we did not have the prototype in hand, fans got to see the digital sculpt this week at Wizard World Des Moines.

Most of you have probably guessed as to who it was, but for those who did not here is Molie! Fresh from the pages of the comic book!

He presented a number of challenges since our concept art is usually done with at least a side profile option to give us a sense of depth. Molie being from the comic meant we had basically just a head on reference.

His name has also changed, in the original books he is an obvious homage to Joey Styles (as well as other classic commentators like Jim Ross, Gorilla Monsoon and Gordon Solie) but just to be on the safe side legally we felt that a slight name change would be the most appropriate.

And speaking of the comics, Lee is warming up to finish up our next issue! If schedules keep as they are we plan to release this first at Designercon in November.

And one last note, Goliath is now sold out, thanks to all those who picked him up at Wizard World!

RIP Dusty Rhodes

Most of you know by now how diehard of a wrestling fan I am, so it is with great sadness that we lost another legend today. Dusty Rhodes passed away earlier today at the age of 69.

Anyone who ever watched him knows his charismatic nature and his ability to turn out one hell of a promo at any given moment. Watching him is like a wrestling clinic

One of the defining promos/interviews of the modern era is known amongst wrestling fans as hard times

You will be missed American Dream!
