Clutter Magazine Art Show Exclusives

We have sent three exclusives to Clutter Magazine for their February Art Show

1450092_875838609146834_3129611365760883141_n

It is the last urethane casting of the Thermal Blue to Clear robed Sheldon Sabre (last seen as a PowerCon 2013 Exclusive) and a never before released Blood Red Clear Ulric Wolfrom 3.0. They will come in a clamshell with retro M.U.S.C.L.E. inspired packaging

We will also be sending one of the last remaining Series 1 Flesh 3 Packs with trading cards in the same style clamshell as well as a (now rare) Emerald Green Goliath with trading card in a clamshell.

I went back and forth with what to send and I decided it would be best to provide some rarer and low cost items to introduce a new customer base to MWOTR. With these three items it will provide collectors and fans of all ages and budgets to pickup some MWOTR in an area you might not see them πŸ™‚

Goliath – Sold Out! Available soon in Russia and Japan & Rotofugi!

Its been a whirlwind 24hrs, Goliath went up for sale and sold out in less than 2hrs!! This was not urethane or any kind of collectors edition, this was standard pvc production run in a pretty high number of units.

I am so thankful that all the fans turned out for this one and it sent a resounding message that the Evolution brand is a strong one and was definitely the right choice to take Goliath!

With that said IF you missed out, when we decided on production we ran a tiny bit extra to make sure some of our retail partners could expose the brand. This was extra run over what we put up for sale for consumers, another reason it was the highest number of production we have ever done.

Shortly a small shipment of Goliaths will make their way to Rotofugi in Chicago, so if you are around their store check them out or give them a call in the coming weeks.

They are located at 2780 N Lincoln Avenue, Chicago, IL 60614

You can call them atΒ  773-868-3308 or email rotofugi@rotofugi.com

If you are in Japan there is a small shipment of Goliaths headed your way courtesy of our friend Don “datadub” Kratzer of Fig-lab, you might remember him from last summer when we entered the Japanese Market at the fall Wonder Festival.

We would also like to welcome Zverotech as our newest International Partner, they are a web based minifigure store in Russia that sells some unique bootleg Battle Beasts and other minifigures from their area.Β  They will also bring Goliath and MWOTR to the Eastern European market for the first time!

New Characters for 2015

As our comic progresses you will see quite a few new characters that will expand our universe past the typical anthropomorphic ones you have seen so far.

Soon we will introduce a second organization from the land of the rising sun known as the OPW.

Francis Foul, Sheldon Sabre and Goliath are scheming in ways that might change the AWF forever…

Here is a look behind the scenes at some concept work from Lee based on my original sketches on sticky notes

The Evolution of Goliath and comic update

While we were secretly developing Evolution Goliath, we wanted him to be as close to his original sculpt as possible. In the C2E2 2013 Urethane release, some sacrifices had to be made in order for his production.

One of those was the three dragon like points on his chin as seen in his original concept art.

They were just too delicate to survive the casting process, they would tear off because they were so thin and they were axed.

Being able to add those back in for PVC of course fits into our philosophy that if we ever released a figure in PVC that was already done in Urethane it would be slightly altered so as not to cheat the collectors that buy the prototype castings.

Going back and working on a figure allows us to emphasize certain things. For example, the scaling on Evolution Goliath is deeper then the original Urethane, and of course the articulation is all new.

Because of this process and the changes we were able to make, we felt Evolution as a brand expansion was more than fitting πŸ™‚

So as we prepare for the Goliath arrival from China in the next week or two, we turn our attention briefly to the comic book. Volume IV is at the printers and we expect to receive them well in advance of Kansas City’s Planet ComicCon and C2E2!

I also spent quite some time this week talking with Lee about where we want to go next, it is my expectation to get the remaining two issues for this arch released before years end. Could this culminate in the debut of Series 3? Only time will tell πŸ˜‰

All I will say about that tidbit is you need to look at the comics and artwork we show off to figure out who we might be releasing, if you look at PowerCon 2013 we foreshadowed almost a year in advance who we were looking at releasing with the Ulric Wolfrom 3.0 promo art.

2up of Takeshi Sumo….

Marty, Josh and Adam are always up to something in Kansas City. You might remember last year we toured with a big 2up of Takeshi Sumo. For those outside of toys a 2up is basically a huge prototype which is 2x the size of the original toy. You see them a lot with the 4H toys and MOTUC.

10615607_10202801213134254_6326477867899373153_n

Well this week we are working on something with these 2ups that should be ready around the time of Kansas City Planet Comicon and C2E2 πŸ˜‰

10897097_10203637794928276_5974391224293465540_n 1489205_863319047065457_2140149926730438050_n

Much like how Leo’ original sculpt was re-purposed for the 5″ Generations Project and then re-purposed again for Series 2’s Generations minifigure, we like to utilize the fact that our sculpts can grow and shrink.

We have another re-purpose project in mind that may yield yet another brand expansion later this year πŸ™‚
