Taylor's Toy Tuesday's DIY Custom- Superpony!

Superpony Toy by Taylor Lymbery

Superman! This pony is basically the horse version of Superman! I know it's silly, but I love this toy custom! I'm sure you have heard of Superman. I can't see why you wouldn't have seeing that he's a bit of a big character in the comic book world and pop culture world. So, I won't go into any background on this character. If you want to read up on his story, and see more about him, check out the Superman Homepage and Superman's wikipedia pageThese two sites should have all of the info you will need to  read all of the background of ole' Supe. Like the Spector Pony that I posted last week, this pony has only one point of articulation. His head turns. That's all he needs. His hairpiece and tail are specifically sculpted for this pony. He also features a soft goods cape. One of the things I love about the cape is that it looks like it is in a perma-flight mode. I've already tested his flight mode out by flying him around the house and making swooshing noises when he dives at the cats. They give two paws up for how awesome they think he is. I'll have this pony and any other ponies completed along with the other custom toys at the upcoming Fan Days Con  in Irving TX. If you are in the (NAY)-berhood, you should stop by and let me know what you think of the toys! Hopefully I'll see many of you there! Now, I've got some important updates, so more pictures will be at the end of this posting. Enjoy the pics. I've got to get back to illustrating comic books! :)


I do have a table for the Fan Days Convention on October 19-21. I'll be there with a lot of new work to sell, including two new pin-up girl posters, a new issue of Xenex the Bug Man and custom toys. Jeff will also be selling some Marvindog media merchandise! Stop by, say,"hi", and show your support. I'll see you there!

 I could almost make a drinking game on how many times the mighty cortical stimulator has saved someone's life! Go see this design on welovefine.com here!

Oh, Chakotay! design by Taylor Lymbery
No one can melt Captain Janeway's heart away like this Maquis hunk, leaving Katherine only saying, "Oh, Chakotay!" Go see this design on welovefine.com here!

Child's Play design by Taylor Lymbery
It seems silly, but every kid that liked star trek that I knew, wanted an Enterprise to ride around on. It would've been awesome. Go see this design on welovefine.com here!

Space Anomaly design by Taylor Lymbery
There was one episode in the Voyager series where Neelix asked why Voyager had to go and inspect every anomaly it came across. Shortly after, the ship was trapped in a sub-space hole in a nebula; and then after that, about to be devoured by a living ion cloud monster; and then after that... You get the picture. Go see this design on welovefine.com here!

Tricorder Theatre
I've read that the scene in Generations where Data is using his tricorder as a puppet, is thought to be one of the worst jokes in the Star Trek universe. When I saw this scene in the theater, I laughed so hard I had soda shoot through my nostrils! Needless to say, I still find it kind of funny. Don't judge... Go see this design on welovefine.com here!

Just a quick update: I did go ahead and purchase a table for the Fan Days Convention in October. I'll be there with a ton of new work to sell, a new issue of Xenex the Bug Man and new posters. So I'll see you there!

There's been an update to the store tabs on both Xenex the Bug Man, and this site. All of the print on demand issues, cafepress stores and commissions info will be under the new store tab on both this site and the Xenex the Bug Man site. Hopefully this page makes shopping a bit easier. Go and check it out! 

I just updated the Xenex the Bug Man website with rather grand news that the long awaited issue 4 is now up for order. It's a great looking comic book! Head on over to the Bug Man site and see what I'm talking about!

Now, you mighty be asking what this Marvin Dog media is. I've got answers. I had been working with a good friend of mine, Jeff McGee, before I got sick on designing logos and banners for a podcast that I am on and logos and banners of podcasts that other friends are on. I have listened to all of the shows so far and they are great! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) That show is called Talking toys with Taylor and Jeff. The other two shows are The pilot episode, where Jeff and Josh Taylor break down the Pilot Episode in TV series, and The Loosely Based Podcast where Brynna and Jeff compare the book to the movie adaptation! Again, the shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to Marvindogmedia.com  and give us a listen. You can subscribe to the shows on itunes and get up to date info on upcoming shows on facebook:
