Thank You!!!

Huge, huge thanks from everyone here and from Mori in Tokyo for the positive response to Pheyaos!

This wave was actually first put in motion last summer, and due to a lot of luck (and some very long hours), things actually landed where they were supposed to for Wave 80. We really appreciate the strong turnout for the Pheyaos debut and it definitely opens up the doorway to producing additional figures that walk the line more closely between "narrative" and "building" in the future. Both Mori and I want to continue exploring our collaborative universe for another 10 years to come!

To keep the ball rolling, expect to see some more Pheyaos action late this month/early June, as well as another return of an old color combo that dates back to the early years of production. Mori, Marcus and I dove deep into the upcoming new Pheyaos editions together, fusing a number of our shared interests into what we hope is a worthy follow up to the first rollout.

As of this writing, every order placed since the launch has been shipped, including all internationals. This round of packing was an extra beefy one, so it took us a little longer to process everything, as we didn't want to miss a beat. I personally checked every Pheyaos that went out, to make sure the little mutant was looking sharp. Michelle was superhuman as usual, showcasing her amazing Rain Man-like organizational abilities (right down to the toothpicks and cheese balls). Marcus returned to the paper and taping mayhem this time and helped speed the process of getting the boxes out of here, and also played DJ for a couple of days. Barn tunes consisted of Koffee, Kaytranada, Riot and a taste of the new Flying Lotus (with Little Dragon=heaven).

Looking ahead, we're super excited to share the next assortment (Wave 81) with you guys later this month, and hopefully the good luck will continue as we finalize the other new projects we've been developing alongside Pheyaos.

Massive thanks once again from both Onell and RealxHead!

RHND!!!

Pix Brix Kickstarter

Our partners over at SSM Vending have a Kickstarter campaign for their patented building system, Pix Brix!

For those that have attended DCon the past couple years, you may have met Josh Dumphy, lead artist and creative force behind many of the vending items offered by SSM, including Pix Brix. Josh and his family are also responsible for helping get Bit Figs distributed in capsules nationwide. We've been lucky to see the development of Pix Brix since the beginning, and this campaign will hopefully provide creators with a lot more colors to utilize.

If you are unfamiliar with this unique building toy, check out the video and consider grabbing a few bulk packs. The ability to create not just 3D models, but to build horizontal, pixel art pieces really sets these apart. Matt and I have put together some fun pieces, and I'll be highlighting more builds and post templates over at the Bit Figs blog in the coming weeks.

Good luck with the campaign, Josh & co!

Geodraxus of Prismiria!

Tonight, our extended family welcomes a very special new member to mix, as Pj Bartlett's amazing Geodraxus crystallizes into its first painted production run!

Pj has been working and reworking Geo since way back in 2013, first starting as a custom resin project, then a 3D printed venture and now the complete, fully interchangeable PVC deal! Having a front row seat for the journey has been completely awesome, and super inspiring. Be sure to spend some time over on Pj's blog to explore the development of this fantastic and unique character (and many others) he's created.

Check out Pj's shop here!

You've made something incredible, Peej! Congratulations from the whole family! Long live Geodraxus!

Thank You!!!

Big thanks for a great start to March! Over the last few weeks nature has been playing a special kind of New England weather roulette, with tree snapping wind storms, concrete snowfalls and erratic temperatures flipping like a cricket. During these elemental sweeps, the samples from this new wave took turns braving the outdoors with me, testing their builds against long days filled with chainsaws, shovels and snowplows. It's been awesome seeing the figures arriving in your mailboxes and getting upgraded forms to tackle some all new adventures out there. Production runs for this wave seem to have lined up well, with most of the stock likely starting to tap out late this coming week based on the current flow.

When we roll out one of these thematic tribute waves, the exercise represents much more than simply color matching a beloved source material, it also connects emotionally back to the specific time period that the inspiration was drawn from.

I was 12 years old when I first watched Robotech back in 1985. Being a latchkey kid, cartoon time in front of the tube was not only comforting, but also inspiring. Many hours were spent drawing Valkyries battling Zentraedi Battle Pods in blown out cityscapes (actual evidence shown below), all the while carefully studying the animated action that burst forth from our old television set. Thinking about those times, I suppose it was like attending some kind of daily bizzaro life drawing lesson, only with mecha as the focal point. What a college course that would have been.

As of this writing, all orders have gone out, including all foreign packages. We're still adjusting our numbers to best line up with the new postal rates, so we may make a few minor shifts in that department (for the better) as we review this last round of shipping. Michelle, as always, was steady and on point throughout the usual processing, packing and shipping duties. Barn tunes favored the great Benny Sings (City Pop), the Interstellar soundtrack again and the new Ladytron (track 2 is especially good).

Our next wave will be landing in late April, and features a couple very special aspects that we'll start to dig into sooner than later.

We hope you guys are staying creative during these winter months.

Thanks again from the whole family!

Flying Vipers - Nervous Breakdub


On the 40th anniversary of its initial release, Flying Vipers pay tribute to the debut EP by hardcore/punk pioneers Black Flag. Their first 7" record, Nervous Breakdown, introduces the original line-up with 4 songs in 5 minutes. We've put our own spin on this iconic set, arranged as a single track, stripped down to bare bones drums & bass, and drenched with reverb and analog effects. Recorded and mixed direct to cassette tape over the span of a few hours.

Big thanks to our resident Viper artist, Big Boots MD, for reinterpreting the classic Raymond Pettibon illustration. More music – including our first full-length – coming later this year.

Dreadvalken's Tomb

Deep within the heart of the Black Citadel Dreadvalken, a forgotten king sits silently within the crystalline darkness, possessor of an unbound soul.

Now confronted with the spawn of a hidden legacy, Lord Dreadvalken must rise from his tarnished throne to safeguard the secret truth behind The Order of the Glyknights.



Huge thanks once again to Ralph for another beauty!

Thank You!!!

Thank you for a excellent start to the year! The Glyknight based waves are especially fun to work on, so we're extra psyched that things seemed to connect with you guys. The PVC color experiments continue to roll along, and I wanted to personally give a big shout out to Eric and the 4H for directly inspiring the hues on the Black Citadel Army selections. We love the 4H!

Now that the packages have started to arrive, those of you who picked up any of the Phantavoss items may notice that the color is somewhat more explosive in hand. That hue is another crazy one that shifts quite a bit under different light sources (and makes my already toasted eyeballs melt trying to correctly capture the colors while shooting pics). I guess we just can't leave that aqua/teal part of the color spectrum alone around here. The blame lands squarely on our summers spent in Gloucester.

As evidenced above, our long time partner in art crime, Ralph Niese, somehow continues to get even better with each illustration and painting he does. A truly rare and extraordinary talent, Ralph's work brings all the aspects of our various waves into hyper focus, expanding the boundaries of everything we do together. Thank you for another supremely compelling set (there's more), Ralph! Your idea of having the Skeleden Axe whipping around like Mjölnir was brilliant.

All orders, including all internationals, have hit the post as of this writing, save for a handful that came in later in the day. As always, Michelle and Pj powered the shipping process, braving the freezing barn and the "Zero Percent Zone" that was our yard. Louis Cole, King Princess and early Paramore (you know it, Pj!) flooded the icy airwaves as we hammered through the boxes and envelopes.

In the weeks ahead, you'll be seeing a healthy stream of strong releases from the different Glyos makers, each one set to deliver a unique and awesome assortment. To kick things off, make sure you check out our friend Brandon Barker's all new Warlords of Wor release tonight! Brandon has put together an absolutely killer Wave 5 (featuring all new parts!) that you won't want to miss.

We're super charged up to explore 2019 with all of you! Thanks again for all your genuine interest and for always sharing your individual creativity. This Edgeliner travels on because of you!
