Continuing the design line of my ancient alien inspired toys, I bring you a third art toy in that line. This time, I worked small, instead of making a massive piece. For this toy's size, which is about six inches tall, I used a larger selection of soft goods to give this character a more regal look. Once I started making the toy, his name came into being and the final touches of his design were solidified. To me, I felt that this character was a judge. I wanted him to appear to be powerful enough to determine the fate of one. After making the helmet and robes, I decided to sculpt and paint a scepter that mimicked the look of an alien gavel. Looking at the design of "Come in Peace" and "The Sentinel", and comparing this toy, I feel as though the design is maturing. Maturity could be good for the line, but I need to keep a light hearted and whimsical aspect to the toys. How will I do that? We'll have to see when the toys are made. I'll have more pictures after the wordage below... as always!
I will have a table for the Dallas Comic Con: Sci-Fi Expo, February 8-9th. If you are wanting a pre-Sci-Fi Expo commission, let me know and I'll get it ready for pick up at that show. I also have the table purchased for the Dallas Comic Con in May. If you want pre-show pieces for that show, let me know.

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.
