Crashed and burned on the last few KK lotteries here too . . . all just part of the game!
Sometimes I convince myself that I will win a lottery that I enter. Those are the one that stink particularly when I don’t. It was the case for that last Bonehead.
Anyone got it?
Crystal Bonehead success direct from HLS but it is coming via surface mail, so I am expecting a 2-month wait.
Somehow luck was on my side and got a Crystal Bonehead too, my first win from Headlock! Just arrived in the mail today and it’s a beauty. I’ll snap some photos sometime soon and share them here.
Man, that 2nd photo is incredible. I had to take a 2nd glance to figure out how you did that. Like always, amazing shots Robert.
@xSuicide Squadx As Kevin said, that second photo is superb - thanks for sharing
Thanks so much, @drybones69 and @Mr Fox! I originally wanted to put the Bone Head mini’s head inside the clear, but I forgot the joints are plugs! So I figured havin’ the mini stand right behind the clear head might work, and the effect creepily worked out!
For those of you who haven’t come across. Not yet announced by Ken or Knuckle, the event itself has posted it. Looks like you guys got your mummy.
Edit: Also, announced today through Headlock’s IG: Quang - Kun!!! Creature Bazaar’s own Quang Le, now immortalized in vinyl. Such an honor for a solid, solid dude.
I hope there will be painted Quang Kun for everyone going to Summer Slime. That would be perfect.
The mummy body is pretty great too. I’m really liking that pale blue for the flesh.
For those that attended Five Points you were given the opportunity for the second painted version of Kid Creature, as well as the third painted version of Mr. Hyde, by way of lotto through My Plastic Heart. I had assistance, but to no avail. So both of these were borrowed from a friend for photos.
A little bit of Myce makes everything nice. Even though it’s a glow base release somethin’ about this one gives me a little bit of fall in its overall colors. Pumpkin Myce Latte if you will.
@xSuicide Squadx WOW, beautiful shots! Especially that Kid Creature, man that one looks like candy!
Dang, Robert! That shot of Kid Creature is making me drool. @xSuicide Squadx
Still patiently waiting to adopt a Kid of my own.
Thanks for sharing those snaps.
Thank you guys for the wonderful and kind words. All I ever want to invoke through my images is joy and sense of owning it yourself(to a much lesser degree) when you see exactly what you’d have in hand, in a photograph.
I’m so goddamn behind, but there’s some good, good releases in this batch!
Nagoya’s bad boy returns, in a manner of Scar Face.
Masato Kun is 138!!!
Quang Kun making his sinister grinning debut in the US at Summer Slime. I’m eager to see a painted version.
Myce returns with a third color palette and a newly molded hand, wielding a mushroom!
CxTxM is touted for Cool Tattooing Masato, but it carries a secondary acronym Chino the Man for his son. Very, very awesome to see a father/son pairing in sofubi by Headlock! Goji and Minya, eat your hearts out.
Kiyoshi and Takashi! A pair of sneaker donning ducks produced by Headlock Studio with Blue Hip Studio. I can’t really speak much on these, other than their traditional appearance of the age old rubber ducky. But Ken does love himself some sneakers, Adidas specifically, so I can see why these were made for fun.
New guy coming soon. Pretty fun design.
Looking forward to seeing it in person.
I was wondering if the Shinigami was gonna get some form of a head on the body, and I’m excited to see that it’s happened! Even more so to have skeleton hands and feet, and wearing a HOODIE!!! I wear hoodies year round, so this is extra fun to me!
Managed to score one of the leftover U.K. Dcon Korekore exclusive Almonds.
New headlockstudio stuff from dcon looks great but the ebay prices are sad.
My thoughts exactly.
The Mummy is a piece I really liked when I first saw it and then to see 6-7 go straight to eBay, whilst all part of collecting, felt really sad.
Impossible to stop flippers from buying but part of the scene that is just a total bummer.
@michael ’s new monster looks great!
(See draculazer IG for pic)
Best piece I saw at the con. So happy for Michael to have done this collab, said it was a dream come true.
