MAN-E-NEWS// James Groman’s “Triceratops” Rotten Rexx WIP head sculpt revealed…

Screen Shot 2014-01-09 at 14.20.44

Whilst the dust has barely settled since the debut of Rotten Rexx at NYCC last year, creator James Groman has already set about working on an all-new head sculpt! Taking on the form of a triceratops this time around, the unnamed sculpt features the same jaw-dropping scale and detail of the original, coming with wonderfully realised scales, rotting flesh and a menacing expression that’s sure to give old Rexx a run for his money. Still a long way off from production (we’ve got the first painted run of Rexx to come first!), we’ll be keeping a close eye on any further developments over the coming months…

We’ve already featured one amazing Rotten Rexx custom that creator James Groman will be bringing along to Designer Con this weekend, so it came with great pleasure today to find that he’s teamed up with Lulubell Toys to bring that total up to four! Aptly named “Radiated”, “Rawmeat”, “Red Dead” and “Ultimate” Rexx, the hand painted quartet will be up for grabs via lottery at the Lulubell booth (#120) for $800 each, with drawings at 5.15pm local time on Saturday and 12.15am on Sunday. Joining the customs, Lulubell will also have several more marbled Rexx blanks at $250 each, as well as a healthy stock of Groman’s Rotten Rex comic book up for grabs… Unable to make the con, but still want to grab a Rexx? Then you’ll be glad to know that Lulubell are still offering up blank flesh and grey colourways right here!

Creator of arguably one of the best toys we’ve seen all year, James Groman has finally been given the chance to customise a Rotten Rex for himself… and boy is it EPIC! Cast by Grody Shogun in a grey soft vinyl, Groman opted to take the 12″ tall beast down a more realistic route than the kaiju inspired custom heads we’ve seen so far, mixing flat, earthy tones with detail hugging black washes to create the stunning graphic novel-esque aesthetic that prevails throughout Groman’s own Rotten Rex comic book. Due to be going on sale at Designer Con next week, we suggest keeping an eye on the artist’s Instagram feed here for full release details soon…

Another staggering piece that we were lucky enough to feast our eyes upon at NYCC last week, James Groman‘s looong awaited Rotten Rex sofubi is now finally available to preorder exclusively from Lulubell Toys! A true master of his craft, Groman has worked on countless animation, illustration & toy design projects in his lifetime, including MadBallsMonster HunterSushi Pack and Bela Lugosi’s: Tale from the Grave comics, with his latest comic, Rotten Rex, forming the basis for this truly monstrous release… Standing at a gargantuan 12″ tall, the fully articulated beast has been cast in soft vinyl by Lulubell’s Grody Shogun, with this initial release seeing both unpainted blank grey and flesh colourways. Priced at a very reasonable $125 plus shipping, these will be made to order, so expect to wait around 4-8 weeks for delivery. Fingers crossed for news of the first fully painted edition soon…

Illustrator, pro toy sculptor and creator of the much loved Brain Bug Boogieman, James Groman, has just revealed that the long awaited Rotten Rex kaiju will finally be seeing the light of day! Originally sculpted way back in 2011, it would appear that the humungous beast is now entering the wax prototyping phase courtesy of Luke Rook aka Grody Shogun, with full vinyl production (hopefully!) not too far off. Details on the figure are still pretty scarce, but judging by Groman’s previous blog postings he’ll be going all out on this one, offering up a packed-in self inked mini comic and mock movie poster print… Expect an update on this jaw-dropping release soon, and be sure to head over to the artist’s page here for an in-depth look at his incredibly diverse work.
