Featured here a few times in various forms of development, Motorbot‘s ‘That Thing Ate My Quarter’ has been revealed in its final form replete with a snappy new name, the ‘Quarter Eater’. Available in an exclusive GID colourway at the opening of the Vinyl Thoughts 2 custom art show tonight (Thursday, March 15th 7:00-11:00pm), the beautifully sculpt and cast resin figure comes with original decal art from Lance Reine and hand painted detail from Motorbot himself.
Pulled from the Vinyl Thoughts 2 shop earlier this week, a standard black edition of Quarter Eater will once again be available to purchase online tonight after the show. Limited to just 30 pieces, the figure should be available for around $25 shipped. Be sure to get in quick, because these angry little guys wont be around for long…
UPDATE// That Thing Ate My Quarter has been made available on the Deadbear Studios store, rather than on the VT2 site as previously thought. Priced at just $20 each plus shipping, the black edition can be purchased directly here.
Created for OhNo!Doom’s forthcoming videogame tribute show, Super Button Mashers, Megaman character ‘Gutsman’ has been given the Monster Hunter Robo treatment from Galaxxor creator, Ben Spencer. No news yet as to wether this stunning piece will be available to purchase, but we’ll keep you informed of any developments in the coming weeks…
I was recently invited to participate in a group art show at the OhNo!Doom Gallery here in Chicago. The name of the show is “Super Button Mashers” and the theme is classic video games. Naturally, I chose to make a one of a kind Galaxxor based upon Gutsman, a character from the Mega Man series of games. The aesthetic that has been built around that property is absolutely mind blowing and it continues to inspire me to this day. -Ben Spencer
On February 10th, the OhNo!Doom gallery will be transformed into a fully working arcade for the much anticipated Super Button Mashers group show. Curated by Mr. Max Bare, OhNo!Arcade is set to include an interactive game by Jake Elliott, 8-bit live chip tunes from Saskrotch and Kkrusty, and of course, a whole host of artists including CZR PZR, Joey D, Aya Kakeda, and Mike Budai.
