Long road to my new toy…

Friday, September 13th, 2013

so its been awhile since i’ve release any new toys, so what happened to Rottey? (if you still remember…) or whatever toy i announced earlier?

well…things hasn’t been easy on my end this year, during the making of Rottey, the only toy material supplier in NZ closed their business(R.I.P topmark), that left me with nothing to work with, and during this time searching and waiting for replacement material/new supplier, new toy ideas has never stop coming, by the time i got all the materials, i’ve developed & skipped like 2~3 toy ideas already.

on the bright side, i get to experiment with new/better resin products, thanks to TAS for let me try their awesome new products! and during my timeout with toys, i have the chance to explore my other dream(besides toy), this remain a secret project for now, hopefully i could share this other dream project of mine by the end of year! ;)

anyways, with all materials in hand, progress on target, i’m confident to say my new toy will drop in September!

…can you tell whats my next toy?! more pics very soon! :-)
