This round connects right into some of my biggest personal influences, thrown in the handy cosmic blender and designed to deliver a hybrid experience for those that may have grown up in the 70's/early 80's. Takara's Henshin Cyborg is the major tribute here, but Fisher Price's Adventure People (Space Series) laid the groundwork for the recent chest tampo inspiration, as well as the mystery figure from this wave that will be revealed when the packages start landing tomorrow.
The new set that all the pics were taken on was constructed out of 3 sheets of plexiglass, DAP compound mix, silicone and tons of paint. By placing the lights close behind the clear painted plexi, a spacey look came into focus. It's still really fun to work on these otherworldly environments that are made from totally terrestrial materials.
Our next wave is set for release at the very end of this month, and focuses on a project that started when I was in 7th grade. Some of you long time folks might especially like what's on deck. There will be some crossovers, and maybe a special build as well. Should be a decent mix of things to discover.
Almost all the orders placed since the launch have hit the post, with only a handful left to meet the mailman tomorrow morning. Special shout out to the always awesome Pj Bartlett for doing double packing duty last week. Pj's Paper Palace is unstoppable.
Speaking of wrapping things up, sincere thanks from the whole Onell family once again to all of you for continuing to check things out!
