As the year starts to unfold, I decided to make a new set for the Corteric Hunters. The new backdrop is supposed to depict a training subsection of the massive Corteric Base. I had originally 3D printed a transformable set back in November, but was not completely satisfied with the end result. Working in the precision sheet metal field gave me this opportunity to make it the way I had originally envisioned.
Making new sets was something my good friend Matt Doughty always pushed. I personally love fabricating new areas for our characters to dwell in! Above are a few in progress shots of the set being built. This hefty sucker is made out of 14 gauge steel! Ill be posting more on sets soon!
Also I threw a quick sketch up as my laundry was drying yesterday. Corteric Hunters inbound!

Looking into 2017 I want to continue pushing the boundaries of toy making and implement more fun and exciting stories with the newly founded digital drawing world I have been traversing. Above is a quick sketch of the characters that made their plastic debuts this year and next year I would like to keep expanding their respective stories going forward.
Once again, thank you for your continued support and lets make 2017 a fun one!

Happy Holidays everyone! I am hoping you are enjoying time with family and friends this holiday season. A huge thank you to everyone who supported and checked out Spaced Out Design this year! It has been a fun jam-packed year full of new toys and new stories!
With 2017 right around the corner, I plan to continue making new toys as well as bringing older characters back with new flavors. On tap I already have two new figures that made it through the prototyping stage and will be debuting early this coming year. It is going to be something different that I am hoping people will like and check out.
Once again thank you so much for all your support and I hope you all enjoy some holiday cheer! See you next year!

As Prismiria starts to open up more to us, I am starting to introduce all new characters that have been in development for a few years in ABS form. One of my favorite Prismirian designs was originally titled "The Rhino" Prismirian. I ended up with the "Prismirian Knights" as I envisioned these guys being the elite guards to Geodraxus. I imagine the Knights were these stalwart subjects that were also vital protectors of Prismira. Geo knew since the fall of his brother to Acris that the planet needed more support. There was already too many potential threats in the System that put the entire Prismirian race at risk. New Prismirans were trained and the Prismic Defense was starting to form in a strong way. For now, Prismiria would be safe...

Thank you to everyone who came out this weekend to Designer Con 2016 in Pasadena! It was a spectacular show again this year thanks to Ben and Co at 3D Retro. It was wonderful catching up with everyone and meeting a ton of new people at the show. I personally look forward to this trip each and every year.
Our aisle was very strong this year with the powerful presence of our Japanese family as well as our Glyos family. This trip was packed full of laughs and burgers! Everyone had great sales across the boards as people piled in to see all the new toys. Specifically our Japanese friends who had lines that bordered the convention walls! Thanks again to everyone who made this trip a memorable one!
Big thanks to my older brother Matt for sharing table space with me and allowing me to continue my dream of making toys! We both share the same love for California and had a great time with everyone out there. Without this bearded Overseer, I would not be in the position that I am in today. Thanks again for all the advice and opportunities!
Only a tiny batch of toys survived the trip back to Boston. Once again a big thank you to everyone who swung by and showed support! You guys certainly made this convention a record breaking experience for me.
The Shop has been loaded with the remnants of Designer Con 2016
