Blamo Toys custom Hug show 12/15 at T.A.G. customs showoff!

Post by zombiemonkie » Thu Dec 13, 2012 2:38 pm

Hay guys,
I guess I could have posted this in the show/events section but no one looks there and I really want to showoff the all of the incredible customs we have been receiving for the 4th Annual Blamo Custom show!
Which is what i will be doing, starting tomorrow, one or two at a time. So make sure to check back daily for more awe inspiring customs from dozens of unique artists.

Image

As you may know, each year me and the guys over at Blamo Toys put on a custom toy show using one of our new characters.
This year for our 4th year, a variety of artists will be customizing our super loveable mini resin figure Hug.

Image

Join TAG, the Blamo Toys gang, and many of the featured artists on Saturday, December 15th from 7-10pm at Toy Art Gallery’s showroom located at 7571 Melrose Ave. Hollywood CA 90046. for the The Blamo Toys HUG Custom Group Show. and keep an eye on the Toy Art Gallery's online store for all remaining figures starting Monday 12/17

Wow, what an awesome show that was. Some great pieces and good people. Probably my favorite show of the year, even though I lost a bag of sharpies :lol: . Thanks to the Blamo crew, the Gaspars, and Josh Mayhem for the doodles, I can't wait for next years show!

hello again,
I am back once again with 3 new awesome hug customs for your viewing pleasure

First up is Gary Ham's entry into the show "Ashby TheTreehugger" .
Gay always produces such incredible work and this year he truly didnt disappoint!

Image

I think Jan Calleja's set of Hug's were my favorite entry into the show.... if they were individual instead of the set i would have bought at least two of them myself!

Image

and finnaly we have Fuller's ridiculously detailed "Char-O" custom
the miniscule airbrush detail on this figure is truly mind blowing

Image

please let me know what you think of the show so far, all comments are welcome

lots of hug's have sold, but i dont know who to....
that is one think i always wish i knew, where my (and my friends) art dissapears to.
i have often debated putting tiny tracking chips in my pieces so i could see them on a big world map.

Yeah, this was a really great show and its a shame there's not a lot of hype around it. I'll be sure to post pics of mine as soon as I pick the little bastard up.

thanks guys,
glad you appreciate the show i think its our best so far and im kind of surprised a the lack of "hype"
but either way the pieces are selling so everyone involved is happy :)

SD: Hug is tiny.... around 2" tall, so some of these paint jobs on such a small scale are seriously impressive!

Hello again everyone,
im back today after a relaxing day off with three more custom Hug's to help you get back to into the swing of "Normal Life"


First up is long time Blamo collaborator Brent Nolasco
i love how he was able to mount his new resin characters head perfectly onto the tiny Hug body!

Image

Angie VTec and I had similar subject matter with our "devil hug's" but i think this is a good example of how two artists can produce 2 very different figures with the same tools.

Image

Jay 222 continues to show his love for "Big Trouble in Little China" with this miniature version of "Egg Shen" showing off his ancient Chinese magic... to awesome

Image


ill be back tomorrow with 3 more Hug's so check back, and feel free to post a comment if your following this thread. i love to hear what people think of the show!
