New Gus preview

I have a few ready to go but I need to work on the packaging. Here's a test of a purple Gus.

These two Mr. TeePee's are left and then I'm sold out. Original run of 25 plus 4 DIY Blanks are nearly all gone. I gave away 4 through contests. Thanks to everyone who picked up a Mr. TeePee and helped me along in this toy adventure.
Check the webstore to pick one up.

Found blog posting about me.

Stumbled upon this blog entry about me and Mr. TeePee today. I had no idea it was out there. Thanks to Toycyte for making my day. Check it out at:Toycyte

GID coming soon!

Cast a few GID GUS toys last night. They really glow! I'm pretty happy with the results. The white one is white and glows blue and the clear one looks like regular GID, with a slight green tinge to it, but then it glows a bright, bright blue. The white also has a depth to it when seen from different angles. These will be up for sale soon and limited.

Lot's of stuff in the mail

I got my resin dye yesterday. I had to pick up some different resin (pigmentable) and it works great. I think the first GUS color released will be a black prototype ala Japanese vinyl. I'll post photos soon.

I also got the mini screws needed for the Mr. TeePee key chains I'm working on. Those will be out soon in a variety of colors. Check here or the webstore for updates.

New old Post

I'm working on some new stuff. I had a mold go pear-shaped on me and had to clean up a big (little) mess. The Mr. TeePee keychain/zipperpull is looking okay. It's hard to cast such a small piece and there's no way to vent it. I'll be getting some different dye soon to make more colors.

I still can't decide if I'm going to SDCC this year. I really want to because it's a good idea to check it out from a community/industry standpoint...but the main reason I want to go is my two toy heroes, Itokin Park and Touma are going to be there.
About 100% sure I won't make it this year either.

I've been working so much I haven't had time to get anything done. I still have some shirt designs I need to finish and some poster/prints I need to work on.
That is all.

Last Green Mr. TeePee ON SALE!

One green Mr. TeePee got returned by the Post Office for unexplained reasons and I'm putting him up at a reduced price at the webstore. If you like the color or just don't want to spend too much you should pick him up. Please contact me first.
As you may be able to tell from the photo the packaging got a little jacked by the Post Office.

Only a few Mr. TeePee's left

Check the webstore to see what's left.

New Toy coming along.

My new toy GUS is coming close to being done. I need to finish the packaging and come up with a color scheme. There's one more piece I need to create and then painting, flocking and packaging and it's ready to go.

New Blog

I decided to start using a blog for my website to keep things simple for me and for anyone interested in uhoh Toys. I'll be posting about the toy and design work I'm doing and will answer any questions anyone might have.
