From the corner of the Galaxxorverse that is Hive World X-544 comes El Tiburon, Leader of The Lucha Sharks! He's never met an opponent or a Michelada that he couldn't finish. This figure was sculpted and designed by Ben Spencer and fine tuned and produced in resin by Marty "The Godbeast" Hansen. El Tiburon was also hand painted by Ben Spencer. This figure is limited to an edition of 10 and will never be produced in this colorway ever again. All 10 El Tiburon figures will ship about a month after all of the presale slots have been filled (so, late Januaryish).
El Tiburon will be available for $75 each on 12.21.12 at noon CST, exclusively from The Galaxxor Online Store.

The Lucha Sharks are almost here! Marty "The Godbeast" Hansen just finished up some fine tuning on my sculpt (check out those awesome stitches!), and pulled this bad boy from the brand new molds. These will now be articulated at the shoulders and I should have some info on the drop of El Tiburon, the first Lucha Sharks character in the next week or so.

Here are some hq pics of my working sculpt for what I plan on becoming my Lucha Shark figure. Conceptually highly indebted to the Inaction Figures by my friends Steve Seeley and Giant Japanese Monster, Bad!, this work in progress figure is a combination of kitbashed parts and original sculpting. I intend to have these figured produced in resin by my friend, The Godbeast and make them available to the public in limited edition colorways.
The casting process places certain constraints upon how certain design elements can be represented and features such as undercuts can be replicated. The next stage of the creative process is to collaborate with TGB about exactly what in the sculpt presents casting issues and resolving them in a creative way. I'm also toying around with having the Luchador mask design actually sculpted into the figure, So that's another creative direction that I might be exploring.
All in all, this is going to be another piece in the classic 5.5" figure style that will focus upon a specific corner of the Galaxxor universe and show some love for all of those great anthro-themed properties of the 80's and 90's.
