Black Backed Blister Pack...

Say that 5 times fast.



We decided to put the CRUSH blanks in a black blister pack so that it'll POP OUT when its sitting in the stores.

Here's a great shot of Eric's work space. Cool to see his WIP on Buzz and Harriet as well.

Here are the latest pics.

RAW VINYL CRUSH, right. We will be getting 50 units in RAW WHITE with unprinted boxes for those interested in customizing;)

Harry Wienerski...



Here's a very ruff redesign of Harry. My original design had far too many cheats to actually work well in 3D space. There are still a few cheats in this design I need to work out but it's definitely getting closer and is more in line with CRUSH's design as well.
We hope to start the sculpt soon;)

CRUSH Update: Raw Vinyl...







These are some very cool shots of the raw vinyl from our factory in China. As you can see he is hollow and the head will still be removable. So for those of you who were wondering if he could be filled with jams, jellies and assorted marmalades...you have your answer.

Unearthed drawings ...



While digging around in old files, I found some work I did for Clone High USA back in '02. One of the funniest projects I ever worked on.

This set-up is from the opening titles. You can see it here. But look closely, it goes by quick.

Here are some more ...

CRUSH production mold ...

Erick Scarecrow of ESC Toys just sent these fresh pics from a secret location in China...
The PRODUCTION MOLDS of CRUSH.
These metal forms are filled with a vinyl powder, sealed, and spun quickly in a heating unit.
Centrifugal force causes the powder to stick to the sides of the molds, filling every nook and cranny.

CRUSH's Torso


Head and Feet

Once the vinyl is cooled, the molds are opened and the parts are ready for the next step.

We should have new pics soon!

Found a few designs from Jacob Two Two the first Flash show I ever worked on (don't think they were ever used)

I always liked the guy with the gold toof.

Bugs...


This is from a promo spot we did while working on the movie Space Jam a million years ago. I gotta say it was pretty cool to draw this stuff professionally.

"That's what real toys come in."
