Not Dead Yet!

Howdy Folks!

Yeah, well, blogging hasn't been at the top of my priority list for a bit now... oh well.

LOTS going on!  So far, this year, we've seen Superfestival come and go (thanks to all who came out), the 2015 RAMPAGE Lucky Bags sold out to the mailing list prior to public availability, RAMPAGE STUDIOS had a 2-YEAR ANNIVERSARY show, and NOW it's almost time for Winter Wonderfestival!


This Wonfes, as in the past 2 years, I'll be at a booth with the whole Paralyzing Toys' crew:  Datadub, Shamrockarrow, Nerdone, Pop Soda and Refreshment Toy!  I'll be painting some PK figures for the Figlab portion of the table (these are going to be pretty!), doing a batch of NERDONE's Gorilla Tank Figure, releasing some tasty Kaibutsu Omake sets (sets of 2 villager Omake that usually accompany the Kesagage figure) and I'll be releasing a BRAND NEW figure in the RAMPAGE Ultra Kaiju Series:  ABORAS!

Aboras was featured along side Banila in Ultraman episode 19.  Banila isn't making an appearance in the series just yet, but that doesn't mean he won't :-P

Here's a shot from the paint studio today:

Also on offer will be a new painted version of my personal favorite Ultra Monster: JAMIRA!  This time around, I went for colors similar to my favorite B-club (Bullmark re-issue series) release:  metallic purple sprays on pinky-flesh vinyl.

It's uncertain if I'll manage another post here before the event, but keep an eye on Twitter and Instagram!  Ciao!

Brief Update

Hello All!

Ages since I ventured into the blog for an update.  Sorry 'bout that!

Recent times have been busy times!  Lots of new toys and events and all that good stuff.  Very importantly, I have FINALLY updated the mailing list, and have added some high-tech functionality so you can just sign up all willy nilly!  Check out the sign up form on the right hand side of the blog (-------> thataway), or on the RAMPAGE shop site!

Speaking of new stuff. here are some pictures:

Hey Folks,

Ok, not long now until NYCC opens up and we can all go nuts over the new and exciting stuff that is surely going to be there!  I've done my best to bring a load of goods to the table this year - most of which is en route to NYC via express mail as I write this.  Fingers crossed all arrives safe and sound!

I will be at booth #208 - sharing a spot with my good friend Niall Anderson (TRU:TEK and the casting mad scientist of The Disarticulators).  We are in the TENACIOUS TOYS Collective Space - all sorts of stuff in the space.  HUGE thanks to Benny, of Tenacious Toys, for the massive amount of legwork, and for getting this spot sorted for Niall and me!

So, yeah - I've gotten a lot of posts and emails asking about when and how much for the various releases I'll be doing.  Since I will only be able to accept cash, and I want interested collectors to know what they'll need to have on hand, please refer to the below list of releases (including dates and times where applicable), and please try to bring exact change if possible!  So - here's the final list (minus a few bits and bobs):

First off, an apology to all of you who are on the RAMPAGE mailing list, and who have not received a mailer in AGES... I encountered an issue with updates and such, and became really busy at the same time.  I'll work on sorting that out and also on getting you guys something fun and exclusive on offer!

OK - down to current events business!  This Fall is going to be CRAZY!  It will start with SUPERFESTIVAL 66 - where I will be sharing a booth with my good friend Brian, The GALAXY PEOPLE.  Not yet sure of the booth number, but here's the link to the webpage (japan site):

Soon after SUFES is over, I'll be hopping on yet another airplane for a tip over to the East Coast - for NEW YORK COMIC CON!!!  My Buddy Benny, of Tenacious Toys Fame, was kind enough to organize a space for me and TRU:TEK in the Tenacious Collective Booth - Booth #208.  This will be a HUGE chunk of "The Block" - featuring toy makers and such from various walks of the scene.  Here's the (current) full run down, on the Tenacious Toys website:
