The new SkullOrm arrived yesterday from Secret Base Tokyo.
Red Glow marbled with dark green vinyl.
Mine is predominantly green with little bits of pinkish red streaked through but it glows like a beast. I made it to the Container Store a few weeks ago and have a whole bag of new risers to hopefully add much needed space to my Detolf display cases; when my new additions get here in a few days it’ll be time to rearrange.
Pushead Dayglo Skull Hevi Orange.
Secret Base, Tokyo
Just got this gentleman in the mail the other day. Lately I’ve been just terrible at taking pictures, so you can’t really get the full effect of the marble color combo, but I really dig it.
oh ryse frahm de blaastbeet trahjedee aht seeeeea ze ghreyt skullORM!
Released 30th November.
Secret Base, Japan.
Dark blue & light violet.
Another NYCC is in the books.
It was another crazy round trip that left me happily exhausted, bookending my convention experience with no sleep and two of the busiest shifts I’ve ever had at work. But when I finally met up with Phil, Pat, Tony, Michael, Ed and the rest of the Standup Guys it was totally worth it. One of the fun things about any sort of collecting subculture is the people who share your passion and I’m pretty lucky to be surrounded by the nerds that I am. I was even able to bring Julia with me to share the day with me, get her first vinyl toy and introduce her to some of the best folks I know.
It was great catching up with Chris and Pus, meeting our overseas buddies, meeting Paulie from Septic Death (who I’ve been at APP with multiple times it seems, but never knew he was he!) and reveling in a few hours of geekiness. I picked up a few new toys, took pictures of a few others (Devilman Finkshit?) and still marveled at how much people seem to like the NAG.
I haven’t had a chance to take pictures of any of the toys I bought, but here are a few fun ones from the show. Glitter Nagball (didn’t buy) and SkullOrm (did buy). Pus, Julia and I. Mecha-ju thingie (didn’t buy)
I’ll update soon with the haul.
Thanks again Pus, Chris, and the Standup Guys for a hell of a year!
One of the best parts of SDCC for me was the ‘reveal’ of the Skull Hevi proto.
We’ve been waiting for a new sculpt and this certainly didn’t disappoint. The arms are going to be changed in the final version from what I hear. So exciting.
Marbled GID (SDCC), Purple and Gold Glitter (SDCC)
Heya fellow Pus-nerds and collectors.
I’ve been kind of quiet lately, saving for SDCC, only buying new items when they were too sweet to pass up, like this new Stumpy Day Glo Pirate that was released in Japan. This guy came to me via the help of a Standup Guy (with another Standup Guy also watching my back) and I couldn’t be more thrilled with it. The picture doesn’t do it justice. Marbled orange hues with a pink eyepatch and salmon britches.
Next month is SDCC and you can be sure that I’ll post everything that I can!
This one slipped by me; totally forgot to update when I received it. Perfect Valentine’s Day present to myself; The 52 Weeks Salvation Pirate. It’s a mashup of a Skull Pirate and Usugrow’s Salvation Ink. Opaque red vinyl and clear blue vinyl (with silver glitter) marbled. The eyepatch and tamps are metallic silver.
It came with a screenprinted ‘eco bag’.
