    The wait is likely very worth it.

    OMG!!! I love the anticipation that is born with every comment. I am also very excited to point out some new revelations I've had about the fortress. I saw someones pic of their collection and they showed the 3 towers and I saw how the tower resembling the C.G. has spiral stairs. It made me feel like that kind of inspired the stairs around the top of ur skull, and even if I'm wrong, I wanna pretend I'm right, lol. I also realized how much these two share in size and it made me very excited to think I'm gonna get to see figures next to something so massive in stature for toys this size as well. Almost too much for me to take in all at once lol, but I'll take all I can get!

    Look for my designs on Deviant art. I am under Octobersdream. Will do commissions of anything, original to recreating any older line. Also needing POP stuff and some MoTU things aswell.

    well we cant let that happen!

    here are some quick shots i took last night. the mold still needs to be powerwashed to get some of that gray clay residue youre seeing out. but man does it look cool to see it in the negative!

    this is awesome! I'm so excited! I have a question, I've never made a mold before and I really would like to do that for my wip grayskull. if you mess up can you easily destroy your original sculpt? or is it just more likely that the mold will look like crap and you can try again?

    In an earlier post he mentioned there were still some pieces of the original sculpt in the mold. That must mean the sculpt didnt survive.

    Hey. Thank you. And yeah. Your sculpt will not survive. Well. Maybe. Depending on what it's made of. But ours was all sorts of materials and wet clay. We literally had to destroy it just to get the mold off of it. It was a nightmare.
    But. I wouldn't worry to much about screwing up. It's not difficult. Just make sure you mix the rubber properly and apply it carefully. You'll be fine!

    yeah the damn thing is enormous. haha storing this mold in our homes has become a challenge in and of itself. plus it smells highy toxic thanks to the resin mothermold. its destroying my brain haha.

    just made another mold too for some hot toys, making molds= no fun. casting from molds=pretty awesome. playing with your toys on those cast pieces = the best thing ever.

    Best pictures in the world to come home to. I think it looks beautiful. Cannot wait to see the final product. Also great Showman ship Bishart. I like the way it looks almost as tall as the kitchen counter.
