With 2014 Kansas City Planet Comic Con comin' up March 14th-16th & Chicago's C2E2 April 25th-27th...thought I would give a glimpse of the shows' exclusives I will offer at BOTH cons & online during the regular scheduled release (which will have 3 additional colorways) March 18th @ 8pm CST.  I will divide these 2 colorways into 3rd's (KCPCC/C2E2/online store).  These will come factory sealed w/ the mini-Mushi included for $12 ea.  There will be strict limits at the cons & online during the release so as many collectors can get their hands on them.  Hope to see & hang out w/ lots of collectors at BOTH Kansas City Planet Comic Con & Chicago's C2E2!!!

THEGODBEAST official Kabuto Mushi release info for March & April 2014



First off, let me thank everyone who helped gobble up the initial 4 colorway release of Kabuto Mushi kicking off the 2014 New Year in Jan.!!!

That said, I received paint samples of the next 5 colorways a couple of days ago.  The entire order will be here around March 10th!!!  These 5 ALL NEW colorways of Kabuto Mushi blew my mind when I opened the box from China!!!  WOW!!!

I want to give everyone a bit of a heads up about this 2nd release, a few slight changes, Kansas City Planet Comic Con, & Chicago C2E2 Con.

First of all, I had to make a couple decisions regarding packaging of Kabuto Mushi & Mini Mushi.  

I decided to have each Kabuto Mushi figure come with his companion Mini Mushi figure factory sealed.  So rather than sell the minis separate as a 4 pack for $8 (like the 1st release) or in this case as a 2 pack for $4 at the comic cons and a 3 pack for $6 during the regular online store 2nd release...these next Kabuto Mushi colorways will be $12 ea. complete with the matching Mini Mushi figure.

*True Cast Studio, Fantastic Plastic Toys, and myself will have our first ever booth at Kansas City's Planet Comic Con March 14th-16th.  There will be 2 NEW production Kabuto Mushi colorways at the show (color reversed).  

*I will have a 2nd production Kabuto Mushi release on Tuesday, March 18th at approximately 8pm CST.  There will be 3 NEW production Kabuto Mushi colorways for this 2nd online release (different from the KCPCC & C2E2 figures).   Online store: godbeast.com

*Nerd City will be hosting, Fantastic Plastic Toys, True Cast Studio and myself in their booth once again at Chicago's C2E2 April 25th-27th.  The same 2 figures that were available in March at Kansas City Planet Comic Con will be available again here at C2E2.  

*I will have a small online release of the KCPCC & C2E2 Kabuto Mushi color reversed figures on Tuesday, April 29th at approximately 8pm CST.  So collectors will have 3 chances to snag these 2 special colorways, whether it be a mule at either of these great midwest comic cons or online after C2E2.  Online store: godbeast.com

There is a good chance I will also have a super limited # of the 3 NEW Kabuto Mushi online store release figures with me for sale at Kansas City Planet Comic Con!!! 

Also, don't forget that True Cast Studio & Fantastic Plastic Toys will have their NEW production Mystical Warriors of the Ring colorway at both KCPCC & C2E2 as well!!!

I will post up some photos soon...

I hope I see a TON of Glyos collectors at both cons!!!

Thanx!!!

HUGE THANX 2 EVERYONE!!

What an incredible way to kick off 2014!!!! 

All production Kabuto Mushi MKII orders have shipped and are now in the hands of the USPS. 

 Never in my dreams did I expect a sellout, let alone all 4 colorways to sell out in this initial release (especially with the size of the orders I placed)...but, thanx to all the great toy collectors out there it happened!!! Thank you!!! 

Special thanx to: Matt Doughty, Kaleb Swenson, Mark Vasquez, Adam Smith, Josh Edwards, Ben Spencer, and Nathan Newell

Without my TGB dream team it wouldn't have been such a crazy success!!! 

 I am now officially sick as a dawg...I had a horrible headache all day yesterday and my throat is killin' me, but, it was totally worth it to have shipped 224 total packages out in 3 days so collectors could get KM in their hands as fast as possible!!! Now for some much needed sleep... All the best to everyone in 2014!!! 

See everyone here in March!!!

2014 brings the Kabuto Mushi swarm!!!

After 14+ long years slingin' urethane...production pvc Kabuto Mushi MKII is finally here!!!

Friday January 3rd, 2014 @ 9pm EST/8pm CST (my time) will be my first production release of Kabuto Mushi MKII (Glyos compatible) and the mini mushi swarm.  


Photos of the factory shipped Kabuto Mushi and the mini mushi ready to swarm Glyos collectors' collections.  Thanx to Paul at the factory in China for these incredible initial 4 colorways!!!







BIG THANX to my brother from another mother, Matt Doughty (owner/creator of the Glyos system).  Without him and his intense collaboration there wouldn't be a production Kabuto Mushi MKII.  Regular 3-7 hour phone conversations covering everything from family, to toys, to life in general have been a staple since 2005 when he first befriended me.  Words can't explain the rock Matt has been for my sons and I through some of my greatest accomplishments to some of my darkest moments in life.  Matt, Michelle, Cady, and Cirie thanx so much for having my sons and I in your home over the last 3 years!  It has meant the world to us!!!

I would like to thank my many incredibly loyal, talented, and GREAT friends...

Kaleb Swenson (for backing this endeavor financially...w/o you & your mom, this wouldn't have happened just yet), Mark Vasquez (keeping my computers running & site working), Nathan Newell (help w/ my site & incredible card art designs), Ben Spencer (C2E2/Nerd City home & printing), Adam Smith (molding/casting/prototyping mentor), Josh Edwards (molding & critiquing), & Anthony Leone (too many memories...too many toy hunts...too many years)!!!

Last, but, most importantly...the BIGGEST THANX to my family...

My mom for my creativity (all the support and encouragement w/ my art), my dad for my alpha male drive (all the times hunting & fishing taught me how to survive and to be a true father), my sons MJ & Kobe (incredible grades, incredible talents & incredible young men), and Karina (understanding that 10+ hours per day, 7 days a week for nearly 3 full months is what it took for me to sculpt & prototype this figure and reach one of the most important goals in my life)!!!
