Remember this guy?

Gears have begun to turn, and by turn I mean its time to learn how to rotocast! Those heads are gonna be too heavy if they are solid resin so what a perfect time to learn a new technique and mix it with everything I have already learned. Ill post up some new pics once I get him all ready for the next phase!

And a big shout out to all the people who showed interest in THOR this year so far, I cant thank you enough!

THOR v2 Artist's Proofs DIY 8" Resin Figure @ SDCC 2011

Our first big (relatively) run for SDCC 2011 is finally finished! Huge thanks to everyone once again for all the support, you know who you are!

PBC had several goals for this run of THOR and while we did not reach all of them, I do realize there has been a marked improvement in both quality of the final figures and the speed at which I was able to manufacture them. That being said we're still not quite there yet. The most important thing is to continue to develop and perfect my mold making and pouring techniques so that I end up spending the minimum amount of time handling your final custom kit.

For example, and this might spoil it a bit, one of our projects in development has something to do with GIANT ROBOTS. Excited? We are too, but to reach that level of precision I *need* to be able to fill a box of parts that are absolutely clean, with crisp edges and ready for you to customize with minimal cleanup.

Equally important is to improve package design! Design the figure to fit the box, not the other way around! Especially if your budget does not allow for custom made boxes!

Basically, I just want to insure that we can get more cool kits to you much sooner. Word.

Now, please enjoy some final progress pics!

Hope to see you at Comic Con this year! Come visit us in Small Press town, row "O". Yay!

Second Wave THOR here we come!

20 THORs almost ready for Comic-Con 2011!

Ok not exactly 20, there were some people that expressed interest when the first wave went out but I didn't have enough made at the time so more like 16 total will be sold at $40 for the assembled and pre-primed version, or $35 for the unassembled garage kit.
I plan to have only 5 of the unassembled versions but numbers are subject to change :D

This will be the only run of THOR for a little while as im pretty much going nuts thinking about our next project and want to actually get started on it. That being said I am excited about incorporating roto-casting into the workflow. I would also like to play with adding silicone parts into the mix as well. some previews should be up after Comic-Con.

Ill have more pics when were all boxed up and of course, pics for Comic Con. I intend to get a lot more photos this year than last :)
