The mono was just an amazing piece, looks like he jumped right out of a thirties cartoon. I was really hoping he wouldn't sell (yeah, I knew he would).

im digging them all..but if i had to pick one id go with mono...im all about the resin right now and you guys are just killing it..just a question, are the original sculpts done in clay and then cast? just looking for an insight to the process. my fiancee is actually about to graduate from fit and their toy design program and had to do some resin pieces for one of the toys she made, and thats how she did it..your guys is alot more detailed and larger in scale though
I've had plenty of good feedback, but sig got too long!

Here's the step by step of how I made the Diablo sculpt for Robbie (I rough out the figure in Sculpey and finish it in wax) -

hopefully the release is spaced out from any other argo releases, so i might have a chance at one!

I really want one of the tinted Diablos! How do they usually sell for?

and what type of wax did you use to sculpt them?

Regular painted ones go for $125, all black Onyx's are $135 and the clear tints $150. There will only be 25 made and we're dropping the last 2 waves very soon (5 pieces each). We only made a few tints for this line.

Been a while since I've posted over here but I couldn't pass up showing off my Argonaut booty. El Diablo is one of my favorite new sculpts in years! I guess the collection shows. :tonqe:
