    Y'all need to get one of these. Even if you don't have any other Sergey toys, this stands on its own. It's pretty brilliant. Apart from the beak, it looks just like a life-size human skull. The Godot series might be my favorite thing in my collection. Absurd art named after an absurd play. Sergey, is "the End of the Man" quoting Jacques Derrida?

    Derrida on Rotocasted, well-played, Shankweather! Haven't seen much mention of him since my college days, long, long ago.

    Anyway - back to Sergey's extremely well-executed sculpture.
    Mine arrived a few days ago, and it exceeded all expectations.
    The unglazed bisque was a perfect choice.
    It is gorgeous, and yes, it does indeed look like a young human skull (with a beak).

    Sergey, thank you so very much for creating this and setting it free in our world!

    Sergey (or another mod) did it already.. and i started with a couple, and it took way too long, id rather make a new acct at that point in time.

    i just figured they could wipe it clean fairly easily.. thanks sergey, much appreciated!! (or the other mod who did it!!)

    No problem.

    oh, very sorry you had to do it indivually.. if i would have known, i would have just made a new acct! i just figured you guys had some sort of tool that could essentially erase my account.

    anyways, i saw your reply on GS.. i chose to sell all of my collection (aside from my formals and two melt monsters), so i could continue to fund my very expensive moutain bike habbit.. if you think toys are expensive, try building a bicycle thats twice the cost of your flippin car!

    thanks again Sergey, this place is the best =)

    I just popped in to say just how much I am still digging this sculpture. I held it in my hands for a bit yesterday, just staring at it and feeling the texture. This remains one of my most treasured items in my collection, and I'm extremely happy and incredibly lucky to be the custodian of it. Still very well-done, sir, thank you once again for sharing it with the world.

    so i guess all the hats are lime green, just got a reply back from em:

    "Yellow hat?
    All the hats of Sakura Formal are lime green.
    We think that because of the photo adjustment and the PC screen, the yellow color might show lime green."

    These are based on Murakami's paintings and larger sculptures. I've always felt like they were a poor representation of his work, but they are at least affordable for the average collector.

    Minty, i am a bit surprised. i know, we all got different tastes, but what exactly do you not like about this custom or am i understanding your comment just wrong and it is meant positive?

    i really find it an outstanding piece from what i see in the pictue!

    I think something else was uploaded here originally, and then the uploader changed it. They left a comment too but that has been deleted. I don't know what the original image/toy was.

    Yeah this was not pointed towards this particular custom, I guess the uploader changed it.

    I can remember it pissed me off so much since it was supposed to be a tribute to ArtMyMind, but it was done really bad so I commented trhe above :)

    this custom is pretty fucking amazing so nothing bad about this :)

    AHA! Now THAT makes much more sense!

    thanks for clearing that up, Stephen and Minty :) Glad to know, you do appreciate this custom here after all

    This thing is just a mess. The last two KR Blacks have gone very wrong.

    The sculpt doesn't work very well with the all black color scheme. There's a lot going on and without some more color contrast it just looks like spaghetti. Seeing a better picture with a white background might help with that. But the sculpt itself is pretty silly. A monster coming out of a teddy bear, it's just kind of jokey.

    i will admit this pic is terrible. but ive seen some better pics of him, hes okay. i didnt like it at first, but its growing on me (although im not going to buy it).. there is a fair amount going on though. i personally think he should have used one of his other creatures.. im not a huge fan of the stuff he draws with kids in glass stomachs.

    jokey? not a fan of pardees art? its some of my fav

    I didn't know Alex Pardee was a thing until I saw this toy. His art's OK I guess. I'm not a big fan of horror art, and I don't know what he's got against backgrounds, but it's OK.

    so the toy is based on that drawing here, i guess?

    and stephen i just googled a bit around and also noticed his "laziness" towards backgrounds in his artwork...but i like how colorful some of his pieces are - those ones really stick out!

    this one for example:

    lol, thats kinda a weird thing to bring up.. hes got so much going on in the foreground it doesnt really matter whats going on in the background (imo).. im assuming he doesnt put stuff in his backgrounds cause thats not what he wants you to focus on..? horror art is my thing, i like all things dark, demented, and satanic. soooo maybe its just cause i have an interest in that stuff already (dont believe in religion, listen to satanic death metal, yelling satan at the stupid Jehovah witnesses that come to my door and waste my time, as well as waking me up sometimes, etc)

    this is one of my fav ones (movie is awesome too), and look he even put stuff in the background:

    really bummed they didnt choose that for the DVD cover, although i could see why someone would say its not fit for a DVD cover

    Ya. IMO Alex is a genius. I love horror, movies, videos games and of course art. I agree with blindbox in the sense that Alex doesn't need backgrounds, he cleary wants people to focus on his character work. I'm gonna pick this figure up at my local vinyl shop sometime today. I am personally really happy with the piece.
