So when I was in KC/MO a couple of weekends ago, I burnt the all night till 5am oil w/ my friend Brian Fyffe (creator of "Zombie Chuck"). He helped me rotocast some of my son MJ's Kaiju Krazies "Mammothmen" & I cast up some mad scientist neon day glow gitd nuclear green "Zombie Chuck" figures 4 his C2E2 exclusive. We had a blast & I can't wait until we can do it again!
B sure 2 check out the Zombie Chuck site & buy his super affordable Zombie Chuck! These r just like the old Marx Weird-oh's, & Nutty Mads! They are a must have!

2011 C2E2 Bio
Hansen has made all types of art since his earliest childhood memories. His mother and father’s encouragement of his artistic endeavors always have and continue to be his base. The purity and minimalism that helped him break down art into its simplest form to educate his students were the final lessons learned to take the leap into starting TGB CUSTOMS. After teaching visual art for 7 years he restructured his career & life around his sons (MJ & Kobe), becoming a stay-at-home father while building TGB CUSTOMS.
For years MJ & Kobe would ask, “Dad, when can we make toys with you?” So in 2009 MJ and Kobe (10 & 8 years old at the time) took their character sketches and sculpted them. Of course the molding and casting are their father’s contributions to the collaborations.

I know it took me a while 2 post these photos & many collectors already ordered...but, there are still some left. The gold ClawShines where hand painted by Jason Frailey & I 2 weekends ago when I was in KC/MO. Each hand painted figure comes bagged w/ a hand signed header card by both Jason & I. These are $35 ea. + shipping. The flesh also gitd blazing orange (nearly red) and there are also a few Thermo ClawShines left as well (see Thermo ClawShine post below). All unpainted ClawShines are still only $30 ea. + shipping! BTW, the metallic green are a true scarab beetle metallic green & my photos do not do them justice...as they sparkle a brilliant metallic green as do the few gun metal silver Clawshines. There are a couple of other gitd mixes left as well.
All orders can be made via email @: firstname.lastname@example.org

So a while back I was contacted by a super kewl guy Wolf Voigt. He is a distributor of some INCREDIBLE products that will kick your urethane art up 2 it's highest level of gimmicks! I personally LOVE the Thermo additives that can make your sculpt/toy/figure go from a bright solid color 2 literally semi-translucent & colorless! I have used his red, blue, & black thermo additives and I will soon be testing out his green, magenta, & orange thermos.
Black thermo is particularly kewl because u can add any color dye along w/ the thermo black additive & when it is exposed 2 heat it will shift from black 2 the color u added!!! The photos are examples of my work shifting colors w/ his products!
I highly suggest that anyone molding & casting in the custom toy industry should try his products & see 4 themselves how INCREDIBLE this stuff is! Contact Wolf @ email@example.com & place your order now!
