Screen Shot 2014-01-06 at 14.31.05

With JC Rivera‘s “Real” Bear Champ proving a huge success early last year, the Chicago based artist returns with yet another realistic take on his signature character, and this time he’s in full swing! Rather aptly titled “Attack Mode”, the wonderfully dynamic sculpt appears to be in the same scale as the original, coming in at an impressive 4.5″ of hand cast resin. Due to be making an appearance in the JC Rivera store soon, we can hopefully expect painted versions to come in at around $50, whilst DIY custom blanks should run at $35 (TBC). Keep track of Rivera’s dedicated IG feed here for news on the release soon…

“Seemingly lazy and always hungry, Panda Champ lives alone in the bamboo forest high in the mountains of China and spends most of his time roaming and feeding in the cool forests of his habitat with little time spent on boxing.”

Following continued success in both custom and resin toy scenes, Chicago based artist JC Rivera proudly reveals his first full production figure, the Panda Champ! Teaming up with Pobber, this impressive take on Rivera’s reoccurring Bear Champ character stands at a lofty 9″ of fully articulated, rotocast resin. Limited to 50 pieces in this colourway, Panda Champ will be available exclusively through the MSX Toy Gallery for just $85 a piece, with online sales commencing this Saturday, September 28th at Noon Beijing time…

It’s been coming up for 10 months since we last heard anything on the infamous “On Your Desk” Instagram Toy, but far from dead and buried, the awesome figure has finally seen the light of day as a limited batch of ‘NFS’ samples! Originally designed and sculpted by JC Rivera, with digital retooling from Shinbone Creative‘s Scott Wetterschneider, the little guy, currently named “Iggy”, has been hand cast in resin with paint duties handed over to the more than capable hands of SmallAngryMonster. Presumably created with a view to producing a full vinyl run soon, we’ll keep you guys up to date with any news as soon as we hear anything…
