During SDCC I received one of the best things in my toy making and collecting history, the first shot of our collaboration with Mori of Real X Head, a character we named Pheyaos. This little creature was dreamed up while I was visiting Japan last April. Mori and I wanted a representation of his main mutant, Chaos, fused with ol' Pheyden. Chaos has the ability to "sample" other beings with his Probe Arm and maybe he decided to absorb something cosmic for one of his experiments. Pheyaos is a first on quite a few levels- he is the first Real X Head mini with articulated arms and personally, he is the first toy design I worked on that I didn't actually sculpt. Mori's sculptor is incredible and captured all the details with precision and intuition. I haven't been able to put this thing down since I picked it up. We are working out the final details for release (shooting for late August/early September) and have some other collabs starting to come together as well. L'amour Supreme and I did double duty on a Glyos version of Chaos for a special upcoming project around the corner. Mori saw the final sculpt at the con and gave it his blessing for some urethane sets to be produced. L'amour also made some other interesting things in the last few weeks. To work with these artists is the best and I'm beyond lucky to have the chance to do it. Special thanks to Don "Datadub" Kratzer for opening the doors to the kingdom and connecting the creativity.
