- Tokyo Bloodbath - “The blood jet is poetry, There is no stopping it.” - Sylvia Plath
August 27, 2016 at The Rosemont in Brooklyn, NY there is a big toy event being held. Vinyl and resin artists from around the world will have pieces up for sale along with free food and music and raffle prizes. As soon as I was invited I contacted my friend Obsessed Panda to see if he was interested in another team project. He was up for the challenge and together we came up with a twisted version of the classic Tokyo style paint application. He used a mix of yellow, green, black and red but rather then sticking to traditional sprays we decided to create the bloodbath edition. Michael used different shades of red to show the splattered, dripping aftermath of a fresh kill. We are very proud of the end result. None of this would be possible of course without incredible vinyl production work from Unbox Industries. The micro-run is limited to 5 pieces and priced at only $65 bucks each. If any are left after the one night event they will be sold online shortly after.
- Tempt Fate - "The only wishes that will ever change you are the kind that may, at any moment, eat you whole." - Janette Rallison This month Deadly Delivery is back with an all new Trog mini-figure by Retroband and the return of my own figure The Monkey's Paw but this time it's been cast in solid black. The Trog is inspired by the cult classic flick The Pit from 1981 which is very hard to find in any format but the entire movie is on youtube for anyone interested. The Paw of course is from countless stories and movies but originally from a wonderful short story by W.W. Jacobs.

The very talented vinyl toy artist that goes by the name Obsessed Panda turned his sights on my vinyl mini-monster Tug O' War. He painted a very pretty micro run of 4 figures with hues of metallic greens and golds and lots of hand brushes delicate details. Then he clear coated everything for a that solid wet shine look. I think they came out wonderfully. They will be on sale this Monday at 9am PST in his online shop for $55 dollars each.
"And did you really have the three wishes granted?" asked Mrs. White.
"I did," said the seargent-major, and his glass tapped against his strong teeth.
"And has anybody else wished?" persisted the old lady.
"The first man had his three wishes. Yes, " was the reply, "I don't know what the first two were, but the third was for death. That's how I got the paw."

For the second month of Deadly Delivery we went with bright candy colored toys to keep things fun. Zardoz makes his return in a Bazooka Joe bubblegum color and Belial is back in Ecto-Cooler green. The new figure being added is my original design and sculpt based off the short horror story written in 1902 called The Monkey's Paw. The original story spawned countless books and movies and cartoons. Stephen King himself said it was his inspiration for Pet Sematary. It's inspired so many things that people often forget the source material itself which was a brilliant story. Here is a link to the story in it's entirety for anyone who hasn't read it.
