Happy new year! To ring it in, King Liger is here to officially announce he is completed. He will be available for purchase later this month after all Kickstarter rewards are fulfilled. In the mean time here are some close up pics showing him off.

Back in business

Hey all! So I've been able to get in touch with Amy over at Lulubell toys and able to provide more updates as Lulubell's Japanese base was still recovering from the fire last year. Amy was able to touch base with me this week with some great news! They've been able to start getting back on track out in Japan. This means that King Liger's process is back in gear!  The first step (The wax) should be finished by the end of May, or there abouts. After this, the creation of the mold will be under way. It will most likely be about 4 months until the mold is officially finished and the actual production of figures can finally begin.  Just note that the molding step may be a bit longer, and will depend on the work load of the factory. It may also be a bit harder to keep you all updated until the mold is officially back in had at Lulubell.  I want to thank you all for being patient during this time. The fire was a setback, but it certainly did not stop us! I also want to thank…

A set back but not over.

I recently put an update King Liger's Kickstarter, so I won't be rewriting this.
Here is the link for you all to take a look at:

Just a long story short. Luke is ok, and the project is being postponed until he is back on his feet. I hope you join me in wishing him all the good vibes and thoughts.

We'll keep you posted as things progress

A bit of Mega-drive fun while we wait

As you recall in one of the previous posts, I made some sprite animations of the potential characters for the King Liger series. While there is no guarantee that they will be made, I thought it would be cool to try a different approach to them in pixel art. I really enjoyed the semi-real look of early Sega Genesis/Megadrive games, so I thought I would give it a go with M.Stangdaalyn. Here are a few that I have done. Enjoy!

Update on King Liger: Currently he is safe in Japan, sitting cue to be made. More on that as it develops. In the mean time, please enjoy this kick line:

Off to Japan

SO this is a big update. First I did a video update for Kick Starter that covers a major change in direction on the completion:

With this in mind, the original wax sculpt of King Liger made it safely to Luke in Japan and production will be underway in a matter of weeks. I do think this will be a better approach as it was possible my tooling may not have been accepted anyway due to standards that may have been in place. This will also guarantee a more quality product. I'll keep you posted as things develop.

I have cavities!

The electro-forming step of the mold is complete! Here are the copper cavities after the wax was melted out. The steel plate is nearing its completion as well. To be continued...

Mold nearing completion

The cavities have are finished! Next is the getting the steel frame fabricated. Here is the layout before cutting begins. The whole thing should be done by the end of the month, then it's off to Japan.
