Thank you to everyone who came out for the release last night! Words can not convey my extreme gratitude towards each person who came by the store during last nights release. Its the support and comments that truly made this sale something I will never forget. Being able to share my world with others has always been a dream of mine, and I am glad to have shared it with all of you last night!
A lot of time and energy went into the making of this launch. However, I can not take credit for the entirety of it. I want to give a HUGE thanks to my brother Marcus for putting an intense amount of time into the graphics and the overall design/layout of the new site. Him and I went back and forth with my designs and he turned them into a super refined reality. I am forever grateful for his efforts and for his insane attention to detail. Bravo Marcus, I couldn't of done this without you!
I also want to thank my other brother Matt for also helping me design my new logo and for being my absolute "rock" (pun intended!) throughout all my creative endeavors. He has always been my number one source of guidance in this realm and others. I could of never achieved this latest level of Geodraxus without him in my corner. Thank you Mr. Doughty for all that you are !
I want to thank Ron Daley for taking me under his wing and mentoring me over the past few months. He has also been a key factor in the new born Geodraxus figure. Without him, the figure would not be as mechanically sound as it is. He has taught me a lot in a short amount of time and I am super grateful for that! Ron truly cared about what I was creating and was instrumental in getting me where I needed to be. Cheers Ronny!
Lastly, I want to thank my better half Sydney for putting up with me as I stayed out all hours of the night casting these guys up! She has been an absolute trooper when it came to me putting the time in for this release and I am very thankful for her support and understanding! Again, thank you guys for making this release a great one!
Shipping starts late tonight/tomorrow!

After destroying a good healthy (not really) portion of Nicks Roast Beef, Marc and I continue to work on tonight's release with heavier guts. We are still on track for 9PM EST here in the new shop. The shop link will be active at 9. Some more items will be posted when we get closer to the release!
Also check out the new site !
I just wanted to sneak in a brief idea of what to expect from these figures that will be available in the new Spaced Out shop. Essentially, what we are dealing with is a 100% Glyos compatible urethane prototype. The nature of this material (urethane plastic) is not comparable to what we are used to handling as far as Glyos figures and other PVC figures go, which most of you already know.
Overtime the joints can become loose depending on how much handling the figure has had. A little super glue wipe and they can be tightened pretty easily I have found. (A technique I would suggest to implement upon extensive use). If you have handled prototypes before, you will see some likenesses and differences with what I am offering here. Being aware of the nature of the material helps, so things like taking joints out directly will preserve the toys life . What I mean by directly is, pulling at the joint straight out, and not torquing/bending the joint. Urethane can be broken. If something doesn't feel right, don't force it. Unfortunately there is no replacements parts for these figures as most are one of a kind. Other than that, these are fun figures to play and mess around with !
More stuff leading up to tonight's sale!

We are right around the corner from the sale so we are going to jump right into the details of what is cooking.
The sale will be this Sunday, September 14th at 9 PM EST. There will be a few different price points for the assortment. It was hard coming to the final price for these MK IV editions of the figures. I had previously sold a very simplified version of Geodraxus for $40. Adding a lot more to the table, I wanted to keep the price as low as I possibly could. Comparing to our brothers and sisters who make production figures, there is a bit of a price jump. The main reason is that I am fabricating each one by hand rather than a factory producing them. Anyways, here is the skinny.
They are as follows :
The 4 different colorway options will be $45 each. Each figure comes with a bonus head and a bonus weapon arm . A total of 9 individual Glyos compatible piece.
There will be a few custom figures for $55 each .
Lastly, a few one off cast figures for $40 each. A total of 7 individual Glyos compatible pieces (No Bonus parts).
I would also like to thank Ben Spencer for printing these stellar cards for the packaging! I wanted to give a little extra to the figures overall appearance and he nailed it!
More new stuff will be popping up over the next few days until the sale. Now, back to packing with the Onell family.

This Sunday there will be a nice little spread of figures including a run of these GITD Cynodraxus'. There is something really satisfying about toys that glow in the dark. I like that it adds a unique effect to the figure overall.
This one is for all you glow lovers!
