"Over the years, Tim has produced nearly 100 separate editions of sculptural objects--bronze, plastic, vinyl, plush, resin, wood, paper, ceramic, silver and gold. They surface, they sell out, then they disappear. Luckily Tim's company, Flopdoodle is in the habit of setting aside a few editions of each release.

That process started a few months ago and this is your first peek at what we're finding. A few of these editions are quite rare and should be gone shortly after you read this. Some are plentiful and are priced to move. "

About That 'Firecracker'-Edition 'Sylvan' by Gary Ham x Pobber


And while we've had a glimpse of the FIRECRACKER colorway of Gary Ham's SYLVAN with Pobber Toys before, today we have another look with a higher-res snap, along with a TOYSREVIL-micro Q&A with the designer himself, Gary Ham!

Standing 9 inches tall and limited to 50pcs in this colorway, look to grab yours at Artist Alley booths AA76+78 at next weekend's Singapore Toy Games & Comic Con (Sept 6-7, 2014)! Note that a very limitd quantity of the 'Firecracker'-Edition 'Sylvan' will be made available at STGCC!

TOYSREVIL: What can you tell us abut the new Firecracker edition colorway, in relation to the Prankster edition? What is your thought process in choosing the colors?
GARY HAM: "I wanted to ensure that each colorway was vastly different from one another giving a different personality all together. The Firecracker edition is a bit more hellish and his pranks will certainly land him there one day."

TOYSREVIL: Tell us who is "Sylvan"? What inspired his/her creation?
GARY HAM: "I wanted to follow up Hermees with a companion piece to compliment him in both size and style. Fascinated by the lore of Krampus I wanted to design something along his appearance, but not as evil as that just isn't my personality or style. So, came Sylvan, the fangy faun prince of pranks that hides in the woods scheming up tricks to play on future prey. The definition of "Sylvan" means to live or inhabit the woods, or created from wood. Sylvan was cast directly from my wood prototype so it felt like the perfect name for him."

#IceBucketCharacters for ALS #IceBucketChallenge


With the campaign for what is known commonly as the "ALS #IceBucketChallenge" has since gone viral ($94.3 Million's worth so far) and we continue to witness folks dosing themselves with buckets of ice water on a global scale - regardless of anyone's judgement or opinion of this matter, it is refreshing for me to see yet another concept manifested from this phenom: #IceBucketCharacters = where artists let their cartoons and illustrated characters do the challenge instead! Here's a look at some (and will add on once I find/have them):

"Wananeko took the #IceBucketChallenge from Paulus Hyu's Nimbus! I did my donation but I'm a party pooper and I won't nominate anyone. Just know that if you wanna make a donation to the ALS Association you just have to visit www.alsa.org and click on Donate. You can use Paypal and donate from just $5 to whatever you want!" - Javier Jiménez (OG Instagram pic).
"A challenge is a challenge!, you have to do it Nimbus, like it or not ... I've done my challenge @chibiorangebing2" - Paulus Hyu (OG Instagram pic).
"Since I'm not a fan of cold weather, I'm not really into this ice bucket challenge thing. But anyway I accepted your challenge, Kupi And you know what, it feels like I swim on the wrong season..." - Bing Bing (OG Instagram pic).
"it's so cold its paralyzing! Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. For more info and donation, please visit alsa.org" - Indra Gunawan (OG Instagram pic).
WHAT-IS ALS? : "Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often referred to as "Lou Gehrig's Disease," is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to initiate and control muscle movement is lost. With voluntary muscle action progressively affected, patients in the later stages of the disease may become totally paralyzed." (www.alsa.org / Donate Here)
"#dtk #dave accept the #icebucketchallenge from @ictoys would like to nominate @thespacewanderer_ @halorendy @castellanatalia but the donation is matter the most, check out the info alsa.org " - David The Killer (OG Instagram pic).
