WHAT: Opening Partay and show to feature the following most excellent awesomeness:
More specifically, the contributors for this show have sent over a TON of great stuff including, but certainly not limited to, the follwing:
-TRU:TEK and the Disarticulators Debut of Kesh-e-Face, The Tiny Terrors from the deep and Higekami (Master of Beard Fu).
-TR:TEK has provided the DEBUT release of his H.U.S.T.L.E. artist series!
-Nama Niku reveals his NNWA figure - Awesome!
-Hellopike sent over a ton of his Nikuthulu MUSCLE mash-up - in lots of different colors
-Eric Nilla has gone all out with loads of MUSCLES of the Universe figures, and his original Sitting Adam and SD Rick figures.
-Peter Kato provided a nice pile of resin that has been given some signature RAMPAGE TOYS paint applications ;-)
-Art Junkie delivered a box full of his handpainted "Shitman' resin figures, as well has some 'DX' shitman resins and an exclusive T-shirt release
-The RAMPAGE STUDIOS Gachapon Machine will be up and running - stocked with rubber figures from RAMPAGE TOYS and Nama Nikku.
AND THEN - VINYL: On top of the great stuff that will be on display (and for sale) for the opening show, there will also be a whole bundle of exclusive sofubi releasing. The shop (and on-line store) will feature rotating exclusives and RAMPAGE handpainted sofubi from some of the best folks out there! Stock at the opening (or in the weeks/months to follow) will feature the following makers:
-Angel Abby (RAMPAGE STUDIOS is to become one of Angel Abby's Tokyo Distribution Stores!)
-Hints and Spices
The list is growing, but for now the above listed makers have either already mailed me stuff, or their stuff will be in the shop at the time of the opening on the 25th.
LAST, BUT NOT LEAST: New Dinosaurs and New Ugly Unicorns are on the way! Things have been a bit nutty, so releases have been slow in the new year - but the regular release schedule will pick up again soon! Lots of great collaborations are on their way as well, so get psyched! Also, sculpts are started for some new sofubi! YAY!
More soon - including the (eventual) birth of www.rampagetoys.com and such :-P
