500 of each figure?? thats pretty ambitious.

 

Especially since TOPPS has gone after me TWICE for selling my figures. Including my Grim Jim I sculpted myself.

We're gonna see how it goes. 500 will be the max produced for each fig.

Yeah, I'd be very careful, especially with Topps releasing the MiniKins line soon. I'm pretty sure they will be even more protective of GPK now and will view your release as unlicensed competition.

We will probably have to keep it somewhat on the down low,but just know that these WILL be getting made. I will keep updating our progress.

Well I think a few of you probably saw this pic but for those who have'nt....VILE KYLE currently under construction. This piece is taking a lot longer due to the technical parts of the sculpt. Its coming though! :D

It would seem that we are in the midst a GPK "Renaissance"... if you will.  Actually, perhaps "LRG Renaissance" is more appropriate...

 

That's some great stuff!  Awesome character choice... stoked to watch the design progression.  

 

How does the sizing look next to other CT's ? (given the bike)

Ok,so here's our test casts. Not too bad for a first atempt. She has some tinkering to do with the mold,and they should come out looking better the more we do. :)

Out of curiosity, are the numbers of each color final or will more be made later? For example, will there only be 20 gold and that's it or will more be made later?

These are so rad man!! That green Tuna Nettie is awesome! Am i hearing this correctly, you are making 500 of each figure without even testing the market? I think you may want to re think that just a bit.. Maybe start out with 10 of each and see how it goes... They ARE awesome for sure, but you always just dip your foot in the pool before you dive in, no?

We have multiple avenues of "point of sale". We have set up a maximum production output everyweek. We are definetly not making that much from the get go. Only a certain # of each color will be released weekly on my website. I still have to finish sculpt #4 VILE KYLE, and the characters for sculpts #5 and #6 have already been chosen. I am also going to start my own toy line. We have already come up with characters, I just need to start sculpting those as well. :db:

My good camera died on me last night, resulting in some crappy cell pics. But I did manage to cast some glow-in-the-dark pieces for this weekend! "TheParkingLot" tab is officially up now until midnight on Sunday!!

Thanks! The GREEN is my favorite so far of the solid colors. I did a deep PURPLE today while tryin to work out the kinks in figure #1. Not sure yet if I might lighten it up. I'm goin to test out solid BLUE next.
