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: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/geoffmaxfield/the-lord-of-beasts-king-liger-the-action-figure/posts/1801981

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.

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:

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…

Coming soon to a store near me...

With exception to a few special cases, all kickstarter backer rewards have been full-filled. This means that King Liger can be sold to the general public! There will be about 15 available for sale on my Etsy page, so keep an eye out on this link here to get yours: https://www.etsy.com/shop/NeoFighterToys I am slating the release for this Friday. I will let you know if anything changes.
