Just shopping at the Super7 booth alone will fill my SDCC shopping bag. There are many GID to choose from - the man himself, Brian Flynn's Mummy Boy, Josh Herbolsheimer's Earth Wolf and Rose Vampire, Secret Base's Zombie Fighter, Invisble Creatures' Leroy C and L'amour Supreme's Mongolion - but if GID doesn't wet your panties, there is another 7 to choose from! I would love to own that Foster too ^^ Cheerful piece of dessert. Top three picks for me would be Leroy C, Foster and a tie between Mongolion and Rose Vampire GID (yes I cheat :P). Booth #7429 peeps!

Customise: Nebulon5// Custom Rose Vampires

Taking a break from his Antique series, NEBULON5 came up with the custom mixed paints of frost metallics. Subtle but still shiny, Rose Vampire looks absolutely regal, beguiling and perhaps, just a touch of haughty. The two above have already been sold on the WEBSTORE (pretty things don't last very long :P) but if you are desperate to own one, just ask for a COMMISSION at USD$90. That or you can snag the SUNSET ROSE VAMPIRE.

Diagonal, Vertical and Horizontal

For those who can't get enough of D-LUX's rainbow customs, he has three for the taking right now. Purple seems to be missing tho :P Each is going at USD$115 and the Horizontal custom has already been spoken for :P I swear it's not me. Run to the WEB STORE now.


D-Lux had a yummy Leroy custom. Had.

D-LUX had these customs and while they are sold out now, I'm glad there was a LEROY C custom which looks nothing short of spectacular in its green coat. I'm loving this platform so much that I have yet to take mine out from the box it was shipped in :P Too many things, so little time. And of course, the rainbow spree continued, from MUMMY BOY, which was the first time I came into contact with his works, to his platform of choice, Rose Vampire. Now, the colourful infection had spread to Hollis. COMMISSION YOUR PIECE HERE!

Obsessed boyfriend. Neglected and bored girlfriend. All too familiar? It's time to show your partner that you do care, by showering them with love this Feb 14th. Does it matter that you are giving them stuff that they just ain't interest in? NO! Someone's got to benefit should she throw your loving aside. :P But for her sake, let's start with things that she might consider keepers! DOOODOLLS' Sweeter Together collection that should send her on a sugar high :P Muffins? Sign me up too!

Back Story:

Once upon a time, not so very long ago, in the Land of Fluffy Sugar Treats, the Marshmallow Icing King ruled over cupcakes, ice cream, icing and all things sugary and delightful. His Marshmallow Highness was a good king, providing constant refrigeration and lots of shelf space for each and every Fluffy Sugar Treat. But he ruled alone, and, at the end of a long day, came home to an empty palace. 'Ah, it would be my wish to have a Queen to rule beside me, a constant companion who would be my equal!' thought the Marshmallow Icing King every night, looking out at the frosty stars above. Night after night though, the stars remained silent, glittering and cold. On his fifth birthday (five years is quite an old age for a Sugar Treat) as he made his nightly wish, the tiniest, most faraway star in the sky heard the King, and thought 'It has been many years I've sat in the sky here. Now is the time for a new adventure!'. And so the star let go of the sky, and fell, shooting through layers and layers of clouds and empty sky, slowing down as she approached the earth until she landed with a soft thud. As she got up, she saw that her sides were soft and fluffy with a layer of cloudstuff. And that is how the Marshmallow Icing Queen came to the Land of Fluffy Sugar Treats. She and the Marshmallow Icing lived happily ever after, and had three sets of cute and sugary twin children – Cupido and Cupipi Icing, Cupido and Cupipi Ice Cream, and Cupido and Cupipi Cupcake. Sweet!

Next up is UAMOU. You know immediately these are Japan only. The WEB STORE would not carry them but if you can get your hands on these exclusives, wouldn't it make her swoon and swirl, feeling like she's the only girl in the world? ;) Alternatively, grabbing her Uamou in every colourway should achieve the same effect!

If you need more suggestions, try the gift sets from UGLYDOLLS, in increasing denominations of your commitment to the relationship :P I doubt the ACTION FIGURE SERIES 3 would make it in time but these well thought out packages should do the trick! Fill with all things pink and red, they are available HERE

And to round things up, if she's into some kaiju loving, nothing shouts out louder than SUPER7's pink vinyls of Fenton and Rose Vampire! Fenton comes with red and white sprays but it's the Rose Vampire growing in translucent pink vinyl that serenades. Dropping 11th Feb 11am Pacific, Fenton goes at USD$15 and Rose Vampire at USD$30.

Now that SUPER7 ONE OFFS is just two days away, please anticipate the flood of custom reveals. Let's start with LEECIFER's, who also happens to be the curator behind the show this year. I like Big Sal/Batman who seems as if it is trying to slink away from a Super Friends advertorial pose which Fire Robo came with a conveniently forgotten fire on top of its head. Attention whore some people. :P

Then it's NEBULON5 with two Rose Vampires and a Zagoran. If you guys remember, I was just raving about his awesomely blended POTATO AND CHERRY TOMATOES ARGUS. I'm in love with the Roses, especially the Antique Rose Vampire. TAKE A BETTER LOOK HERE. I'm still thinking if I should add one to my collection and if I do, I'll get Nebulon5 to custom one for me :)

Saving the best for last, we have VALLEYDWELLER with the first Garuru and Steven custom this season! He made a pretty big impression with his MCMEGADUNNY and with these latest customs, he has certainly secured a place on my artist-to-watch list! Every piece strikes such a beautiful resonance that I am actually glad I cannot be there this weekend. Not that I can be on any other weekends. :P If I may boldly venture and say this, I think Garuru is the sexiest thing I've seen so far. Oh, and Big Sal actually reminds me of VASH STAMPEDE FROM TRIGUN.

SUPER7 ONE OFFS is just 3 days away and what is a customs show without some reveals! Starting with DRILONE unmistakable signature style on a trio of Super7 Monster Family - VISIGHOST, FIRE ROBO and MONGOLION - as well as a David Horvath X Gargamel sentai inspired kaiju SUPER PUNCHER. The vintage rusted feel goes exceptionally well with the Mongolion, in my personal opinion but my vote goes to Super Puncher for being what it is. :P

Next is another custom on Fire Robo with a great literary tribute to Fahrenheit 451, a novel in which 'presents a future American society in which the masses are hedonistic and critical thought through reading is outlawed.' You can read up more on the WIKI ENTRY. Mikie Graham/zombiemonkie turns the figure into Guy Montag, the protangonist in the cautionary tale of censorship. Guy is certainly a book burner, capable of torching William S Burrough's seminal work Naked Lunch with incendiary eyes. Follow HIS TWEETS!

And to round off this update on the custom show is Bob Conge/Plaseebo with some mind-altering mashups. Introducing Vampoloctopus, Gargazilla and Rose Vampire Ghost Tank. Of particular note is the usage of LED lights in Gargazillar and Rose Vampire Ghost Tank. I just like saying Gargazilla. :)

Don't forget that it's all cash and carry this Saturday 29th Jan!

D-LUX has this up at his ONLINE STORE, going price is USD$175. It's obviously too expensive for a casual gift exchange but you can always treat yourself to a piece of awesome this Christmas. Drenched in luscious Monster Kolor metallic paint, with holographic color change flake, and super glossy clear coat, this Rebel can lead the purple revolution anywhere!

Or if you prefer Rose Vampires, he is offering the custom service at USD$100. Package includes the figure painted in any colour palette of your choosing and free shipping anywhere in the US. If the offer still stands next year, I'll get him to do a rainbow, like the picture above.

Super 7 is exploding Kaiju

In what seems like a grand buildup to the Christmas, SUPER7 is going to rain kaiju on you every Saturday, starting this week 4th Dec, with Milton, Fenton and Le Turd, the following Saturday 11th Dec will be the release of Power Mister and GID Rose Vampire, and finally, on 18th Dec, GID Mummy Gator and Zombeard. I think Operation Blend In might not work out for Santa Zombeard; there is no cultural variant of the jolly old man anywhere in the world that comes with a descriptor like flesh-rending teeth. I'm getting Power Mister. What are you guys getting? :)

NEBULON5. You'll probably think I'm fussy, on top of being a prude, when I say this: I'm only really impressed by one out of the lot. What I am not saying is this: they suck. Because the colour transitions on most of them are executed with a precision so incisive that, collectively, they are wonderfully cohesive. But, the colour theory, when appreciated individually, shows a need for refinement and tightening.

MOAR?Collapse )
