Vinyl Toy Design

So I'm thinking about changing some of the forms in the body to bring it closer to the head's style - blocky, simplified shapes. Mainly just straightening some lines here and there and removing some detail on the back and such. I guess the best way to describe what I think needs to be done is making him look more like a 2D illustration sculpted up than a 3D model.

Weta Originals Rayguns Announcement

Oh baby, they're like rayguns from an op-shop. And did I mention they have moving parts?

"We will be making an announcement about the
Weta Originals Rayguns range on NZ 26 / US 25 January – Be sure to bookmark for the official announcement!"

Hellgate London Collectibles

Weta has posted the release details for these beautifully crafted collectibles, created for the Hellgate: London game by Flagship Studios. There will be a limited edition of 1000 of each character class available. If you're wondering who Flagship Studios are, they're a bunch of x-Blizzard boys who worked on uber games such as Diablo *geek drool*.

I've seen these suckers in the flesh and they are pretty hot. I don't really collect polystone, but these are making me reevaluate... I must see if I get a discount.

Go here for details.

Muse's 'Knights Of Cydonia'

Cover Design (Xtreme)

"They were married now - yet they dared not trust each other!"

Match-boxes Xtreme

Some cool match-boxes I found while touring the country. Why is old design always so much cooler than new design?
