Tim Stephson over at Ultimate Skull & Cobra is proud to reveal that his signature Skullgasm figure will be making the leap into soft vinyl soon! Pictured here in finished prototype form – cast in the original Hasbro wax mix, no less – the sculpt has seen a number of refinements over the original resin version, including more realistic detailing, the loss of the wrap around tongue, and the inclusion of a standard-sized neck joint for future bodies/collaborations. Currently winging its way over to Japan for production as we speak, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for the first Skullgasm sofubi release around summer time…

untitled-11

Having graced countless indie toy releases with his unmistakable art over the past couple of years, we were very pleased to see that Gabe Hernandez aka Worthy Enemies has finally set about creating his own figure… taking on the one and only ball of flesh known as “Belial” from cult horror flick, Basket Case! Beautifully sculpted by Gabe in a style very similar to his artwork, Duane Bradley’s twisted twin has been cast up by none other than Tim Stephson in a tan colored resin, coming with minimal hand painted detailing on the face. Limited to an edition of just 31 figures – each coming packed with a signedheader and bio card from Gabe – Belial will be touching down in the Worthy Enemies store this Saturday, January 23rd at Noon for $30 plus shipping…

Following the success of his “Rose Skull” collaboration with MM Toys last year, tattoo artist Corey Rogers has teamed up with none other than Tim Stephson for an all-new resin release! Once again focusing on the artist’s love of skulls, the self-titled figure features a number of cool design elements, including multiple eyes, wings and even a riff on the iconic Powell Skateboards skeleton found on the rear. Sculpted, cast and painted by Stephson, the Corey Rogers Skulls will be touching down in Rogers’ store on Friday, May 29th, coming packed with an original small painting from the artist for just $100 plus shipping…

After months of painstaking planning and development, resin artist Tim Stephson over at Ultimate Skull & Cobra is proud to reveal that not one, but two monumental new figures will be touching down in his store later this week! First up, we have Stephson’s loving tribute to Godzilla, the King Kaiju. Inspired by the classic garage kits of old, this humungous piece features in excess of 40 separate hand sculpt and cast resin pieces, including individually assembled GID dorsal plates as well as magnetically articulated arms. Limited to an initial run of just 5 pieces – each coming painted up in their own unique colorway – the King Kaiju will be up for grabs at just $150 plus shipping- a snip when you consider the sheer amount of work that’s gone into each one!

Next up, we have the super-creepy “Uchu Kaijin”… Heavily inspired by HR Geiger’s extensive body of work, the gruesome alien baby has been designed and hand sculpted by Stephson, coming rotocast in resin – a first for USaC – with several additional layers painted internally for extra strength. Limited to an edition of just 4 pieces – each coming in their own unique colorway and packed with an original painting – the Uchu Kaijins will be joining the King Kaijus in the USaC store this coming Friday, March 27th at 7pm Central for just $100 each plus shipping…

Tim Stephson over at Ultimate Skull and Cobra has taken on the cult classic Hellraiser for his latest release, proudly presenting the Pinhead mini bust! Staning at around 3.5″ tall (TBC), the beautifully realised head-to-torso figure has been hand sculpt and cast in resin by Tim, coming complete with what appears to be a super-ornate rendition of the film’s infamous puzzle box in 3D printed form. Whilst we’re still unsure of how the figures are to be finished, we’ll be keeping our fingers crossed that those rather ominous fish hooks and laser cut box faces will feature as part of the end product in one way or another… Keep track of Tim’s Instagram feed here for more developments on the project soon!

Originally sold as bespoke one-off customs due to the size and cost of the 9″ tall beasts, USaC have managed to outsource production to a reputable factory in China- resulting in the price being slashed by over half to just $65 plus shipping!
