Super flipping doopular news this morning. The first small batch of Jungle Boogie Steven are made. This photo is from Japan, as I still don’t have these in hand.
The very first shot of Steven. He’s still not even in the wild yet.
This is the third Steven the Bat sculpt.
Steven the Bat was my very first toy.
Super7 and I got the very first batch of them out at SDCC back in 2005. Crazy to think that was only 12 years ago. Or on the flipside, holy sharts. I have officially been making toys now for 12 years.
That first sculpt took over 2 years to come out into the wild, lots of communication failure with our contact in China, but we worked it all out, and Steven was born. This first sculpt has some occasional standing issues. Too much fig moonshine.
The second Steven sculpt was part of Super7’s Monster Family series, and was sculpted by Gargamel, who I had been working with for quite a bit by the time that second steven came out. Smaller, cuter, and a good stander.
And now this Jungle Boogie Steven. I started sculpting this winter 2015-16 I think. In late fall I sent off the finished sculpt to Japan. I did everything but the fittings on this beast, so don’t expect the clean smooth lines of the Gargamel sculpted Steven. This is more like an ancient artifact found inside a temple cave under the forest floor.
I can’t wait to hold this new Steven in my hands.
We Call him Fishmist, but that’s not really his name. This is the latest Suns Of Brodarr collab project in the works.
I was immediately taken by Andrew’s inkings.
I read ApocalyptiGirl cover to cover one day at Floating World…and then came Head Lopper. Holy hell that’s a good book.
So I gave Andrew a holler, really a shot in the dark, and he was excited to play.
Here’s a good WIP of the sculpt by Beth Graves, which, with his fishsword will use a Lonny type body. Purty flipping stoked!
FINSTACHE is the bastard sibling of the Brodarr brothers. Mama Queen hooked up with a Magma Serpent in secret and the resulting child, FINSTACHE was immediately thrown into the Lava. Unbeknownst to the queen, little FINSTACHE survived the creamy lava flows, gained strength from it and spent his years honing the blade on his left hand... thirsty for revenge.

This week I am releasing a herd of mixed parts Killers into the wild. Colors are tennisball, bleached neon orange, glow, neon pink, and a few have some forest fogblue legs here and there.
This whole crew has been sunning themselves on the sands of Forest Island.
These Walking Killers also took part in a beach trash clean up. So each one is packed with some beach bits in traditional bag and header.
Release date. I am taking part in a national strike this Friday, so my shop will be closed Friday.
I’ll be re-opening on Saturday, and these Beachdog Killers will go on sale Saturday Feb 20th at 7pm pacific. perfect time for a little evening fun here in the states, and some morning shopping for folks in most other lands.
A little FAQ
This is just a another little FU to this escaped mental patient we have in charge of our country. For me this is easy. I work from home, and set my own hours. So I am in no way telling you what you should do.
I will be closing the webshop for the day, and not buying anything anywhere.
Beach cleanup. I love beachtrash, and sadly there is too much of it. So sometimes I like to visit the beach, and pick all the plastic bits off the sand. The stuff that is fun i save, make art with, or decorate my own landscape with. The stuff that I’m not interested in I put in the garbage, or recycle.
this beachday’s highlights included an old doggiebag with a turd in it (threw that out), something that I couldn’t tell if it was a tentacle of fishing lure (I think it escaped out of my bag), and a tiny buoy (I’ll hang this in my tree with the others).
So no release this Friday. If your local, or have a local buddy though. Have them stop by the brick and mortar Good Gravy shop. We just loaded it with gems of all flavors old and new. Biskup, Munktiki (Yakimon), Koraters (Shoko Nakazawa), a pile of my own goodies, and more.
I should have a few of these magic bits up on the site this Friday at 10am pacific. I had the best time painting these Prenute. Prenute designed and sculpted by Tim Biskup, produced by Gravy Toys. these customs painted by Bwana Spoons, that's me.
Three bad brothers you know so well.
Or maybe you are just seeing this for the first time.
recently I was going thru some video for a project and it triggered a little itch in me.
Jeff, Lonny, and Drizz. These guys are the basis, or root of how the whole Suns of Brodarr world got started in my brain. I wanted Three Stooges from space with a mission that they could never accomplish. Wil E. Coyote never actually gets to eat the Road Runner, Tom never gets to eat Jerry, and the cycle of shinanigans continues into eternity.
All Jeff, Lonny, and Drizz want to do, is come to earth, and eat it’s melty core. They heard how delicious it was one night at a bar.
So this Space Traveler set is a back to roots release. Start your collection here, or build your beautifully wrong army with these guys. Sold both as a set and individually.
Invisible Army clear with blue magic and hidden skull soul.
Lonny has done it again. He has put together a new batch of Cyborg Stardust in his lab inside the starship Cybil Shepard.
These beasts are sold via Random Roll. Friday 10am pacific on gravytoys.com
What do you mean “Random Roll”.
If you know me and my Suns Of Brodarr, you know we all love dice and games.
I came up with an intelligent idea using some of my brain.
There are 7 different figures, and I have a 10 sided die (0-9).
Each figure is assigned a number 1-7.
After each each order I will roll the die to decide which figure you will get.
If your picking up multiples, after each figure roll, I will eliminate that number from the possibilities. So unlike a blind bag, with this random roll you are guaranteed not to get a bucket of the same figure.
Here are the numbers assigned to each figure.
1 Jeff, 2 Kamisama, 3 Garak, 4 Lonny, 5 Aqualox, 6 Private Hooligan, 7 Paulo The Moonlight Kreeper, 8 little prize and then roll again, 9, and 0 are both designated as roll overs.
Example. You have ordered three figures. On the first roll, it comes up 6. Your first figure is a Hooligan. Roll again, and it comes up 8. You win a little prize, and roll again. It comes up 2. Your second figure is a Kamisama. One more roll left, first it comes up 6, but you already have a hooligan, so I roll again and it comes up 1. So your third figure is a Jeff.
Makes sense? :)
I can’t guarantee your order by christmas, but we will be shipping all the weekend orders out early Monday via priority mail in the states. So it seems at least likely.
Stay tuned for Skulls And RainBones Society to reopen on December 26th. With the Protection From Evil, Lonny tee and figure.
A fantastic stack of rainbow powered sofubi. One off of my own characters, and some multi layered madness on PK Biterfish. Plus... a roll up of 5 PK Moongoon handpaints. Please hold yourself to one Biterfish or one Moongoon if the afternoon rolls around and there are still bits left up for grabs you are welcome to then grab another and I will refund shipping on your second order. Good luck, hope you dig these boogers.
