Back when I was a kid, I had this robot that had a suction cup bottom and a "hugging/crushing" feature on it. That Robot was Maxx Steele. For this site, I've talked about three of the Robo Force Robot toys. I reviewed, Maxx Steele, Coptor, and Blazer. In this painting, I've got Maxx Steele and Coptor featured along with the Fortress of Steele based on the Maxx Steele Robo Force toyline by Ideal Toys. As I go and research material on the toys for the Podcast I'm on, Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff, I find all sorts of package and book art from back in the day. I felt inspired to make my own Robo Force painting. Now, I don't think there was ever any Jungle scene in any of the books, but I really wanted to put one in. I thought of it as the world before it went barren in the Maxx Steele book universe. This piece is an acrylic painting on a 13" X 24" piece of polar matte paper. It took a long time painting this piece, and I had a blast working on it. I wouldn't mind making another one day. Maybe I should make an action scene between Blazer and Hun-Dread. We'll see. You can see this piece in my deviantart gallery as well here.

I apologize for having not done any review from the Sci-Fi Expo yet. I haven't had a lot of time to post here lately. The show was good and I had a good time! I got to visit with a lot of great people, including my favorite cosplayers, fans, and peeps! Thank you all for stopping by and visiting. Thank you Taffetta and Anna for your support! Thank you Reese, and Family for the purchases and thank you Candace and Darth Mall toys for yours as well! While I was there, I was interviewed by Eugene, a puppet reporter from Puppets Rule the World. Below is my interview.
If you have to ask, Eugene smelt like dryer sheets. :D
I have the table purchased for the Dallas Comic Con in May. If you want pre-show pieces for that show, let me know.
I have opened a storenvy.com shop to sell my toys. Here's the link: http://taylorlymbery.storenvy.com/
Just to let you know all know, I am taking commissions. If you would like to commission me for original artwork, head over to the commissions tab in store to see how.
If you have not heard about the Podcast called, "Talking Toys with Taylor and Jeff", then it's time I let you know! Jeff and I are on the show where we talk about toys! (Go figure, I mean Go action figure!) Seems simple enough. We pick out a toy line to discuss in each show. We share our childhood memories, our favorite five, and talk about the one toy in the line that got away. Jeff talks about how he cherished his toys and I talk about how they ended up in the garden! 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! The shows are great! If you are interested in what we got, go to Marvindogmedia.com and give us a listen.
