E.killer Review on Battlegrip   Leave a comment

Phil Reed have talked quite a bit about toys since I noticed his posting a link to my site a while back on his site, Battlegrip.com.  I sent Phil one of the first E.killers as a thank you for all of his help and advice from his experience with sculpting and casting resin toys, and he was nice enough to post a review.  Check it out here.  I’ll forgive Phil this one time for thinking it’s a plant monster, since it IS green. 😉  Check out Phil’s other awesome reviews and Spotted Online features; he’s really in touch with a good slice of the DIY toy community and keeps tabs on a number of artists and sites.  When you’re done checking out Battlegrip, come back here and pick up an E.killer for yourself!

Killer Culture E.killer Ambush!   Leave a comment

Took a huge number of photos today for various projects, and wanted to throw this one up right away!  An E.killer stalks its human prey and prepares an ambush.  When the time is right, the E.killer will pounce upon its unsuspecting victim’s soft, fleshy ankles.

Specimen Escaped!   1 comment

The unbelievable heat here in New York has just about everything at a standstill, so painting the first wave has been pushed back.  Unfortunately, there was an accident in the lab, and the one killer that received a base coat so I could show off the sculpt escaped, leaving a path of destruction behind.  Attached are the last photos of the specimen, taken by the late guard on duty at the time:

This was the first image sent back by the guard of the specimen awakening.  The guard moved in for a close look:

At this point the guard was able to observe the creature examining its surroundings, including improperly disposed waste from a previous experiment.

We believe this next photo shows the creature feeding:

After this, we are not exactly sure what happened, but it appears the creature became aware that it was being watched.  These are the last two photos received.

The creature’s whereabouts are currently unknown.

Killer Culture Debuts!   1 comment

The big news starts here!  Introducing the Killer Culture line of resin figures!

I have been toiling away this little project for a while now, and am finally ready to pull back the curtain on the first figure.  Now, on to the story:

In 2010, the esteemed Dr. Hayflick was experimenting with macrocellularification, an experimental technique for making normally microscopic specimens large enough to be analyzed using the naked eye.  Using highly unstable ATP-X, Dr. Hayflick was able to grow individual cells that were up to two or three inches in diameter for analysis.  What happened next is still under investigation, but early reports indicate that a mutagen experiment elsewhere in the facility suffered some complications, and an experimental mutagen leaked into the ventilation system at the same time that a major breakthrough in Dr. Hayflick’s work was expected.  The facility was destroyed in the aftermath of what happened next, with Dr. Hayflick still unaccounted for, but the world now faces a deadly new menace, the Killer Cultures!  From the mutagen ATP-X birthing pools beneath the site of the lab, macrocellified pathogens have been launching their attacks on humanity, wreaking havoc wherever they appear!

The first Killer Culture making its debut is the Escherichia killer, one of the front line and most abundant macrocell bacteria observed.  Armed with a crushing tentacle and deadly toxin transport proteins, E.killers exist only to feed and destroy.  No antibiotic tried yet has been able to stop their deadly advance!

As the first figure in the line, E.killer will debut shortly in all his resin glory.   The first wave is almost ready for paint, and more news will be coming.
