Marty "The God Beast" Hansen is a talented fellow who loves toys - and makes some nice ones. His latest creation appeared on Instagram late Sunday with the following message:
sculpting for 3-4 weeks now...hope to have prototypes of this sculpt
ready/available for Designer-Con November 8th & 9th!!!"
He had more to say on the October Toys forums. "6 total parts I think, 4 different possible faces/characters (with paint
apps), upright & all 4's possible poses, a hidden function and
possible hidden removable creature too!!!"
Typically, he casts some toys and sells the prototypes a few months to a year before a mass-produced version takes place. A big advantage here is that he often takes requests and will make one in the color of your choosing - which is certainly a great way to get a one-of-a-kind collectible. Keep an eye on the October Toys boards just in case this opportunity comes up.
