So last night I went on a bit of a character design spree since the new OMFG Series 5 is now open for submissions and this is what I came up with!
I plan on coming up with more than this as well but i'm only going to submit the best piece for consideration. I'd really love to get one of these put into the OMFG line but if not I will probably make them into some kind of figure myself. So really it's a win win :) Id love your input on what is your favorite and if there is anything i could do to make any of these better. Thanks for checking in!!!

Squid Skilla!!! will be debuting August 25 at BING Con!!!
This guy was super fun to make using a lot of fun suggestions from friends and family on social media sites. As much fun as he was he was also a ton of work! I definitely had a lot more on my plate with this guy then I did with MOLT. Biggest reasons for that is the more involved color scheme and those ding dang suction cups! I did however get to hone my resin casting skills and I learned a lot about the whole process of making these things with this project.
I will be posting a detailed process blog with pics of every step of the way very soon so stay tuned for that and for further announcement of when these will be available for sale online.
Thanks for stopping by! here's some more images to wet your appetite!
Wassup yall it's PLEX! Just wanted to show yall what I was working on tonight.
Basically this morning I was reading about sculpting and really wanted to get my hands into some sculpey. So as I was checking video subscriptions on YouTube I stumbled across KYZO's new speed art video of his character. I really dug the new character and thought I bet I could sculpt him. So that's what I did!
First I started with a super simple shape with tin foil so as to not waist too much sculpey and also to use as a simple armature.
Next I built a basic shape and boiled it for 2 minutes in a pot. Most people bake sculpey but it's a little known fact, from what I hear, that you can boil it as well... pssst and it's much quicker!
So I continued on like that adding details, boiling, sanding, adding details, boiling sanding etc. till I came up with what you see to the above! This was just a for fun project and I'm hoping KYZO approves.
Next I'll probably paint him or who knows maybe even make some resin casts if KYZO's interested. I think this guy could easily be a fun little DIY platform to paint. This character is about 2" x 2".
You can check the whole collection of process pictures I took in the little photo gallery below.
Enjoy! And let me know what you think!!!
From the heart of a volcanic planet in outer space comes the locust beast hybrid MOLT !!! Not an accident he was cursed by the planet Lords and lost his wings. But the intergalactic war associate's W.A.R.P. Corp had other plans for the newly formed beast.
Molt now spends his time ravaging random cities W.A.R.P. Corp teleports him to. Mostly because that's just what he does. He was once zapped to earth but he
was too small to ravage cities there. However he did discover that he prefers Newman's own over Dunkin Donuts coffee any day.
This is my first resin toy. He stands 3" tall and was cast from my own
Molt has also been hand painted and comes in a bag with a cool header that
has painted eyes.
Only 10 pieces in existence, each are numbered and signed by PLEX.
Also there is one unique chase figure (red/gold) #10 of 10 which is a one of a kind paint job by Will McKenzie from Crying Gull Toys!!! First one who asks for it with there purchase gets this one!!!
You can get one here!
Thank You for checking in!

Had an awesome day yesterday with my wife hangin out in Northampton Mass. We
found the new location for my favorite art gallery and had a blast checking out

chatted with the owners about making resin toys and all the cool events they
have going on at the FOE gallery. I plan to be in this store a lot more from now
on especially since they have a new set of subculture art on display every
month. I feel lucky to have a place like this not too far from my area! Thanks
