I am cooking along and finished all the casting, tooling, and clean-up work for this latest launch. I wanted to do a few customs to display a different aspect of the Prismirians. Typically, they are a beautiful, sleek, and shiny group of people who are very elegant, yet powerful. There is a crew however, that has a bit more roughness to them. We will meet them in the coming weeks!
Ill be finishing up painting this week and will be printing packaging and finish with photography. I want this launch to be the best it can be, so thanks for bearing with me! Just a quick update, now back to painting.

I have been working feverishly over at the shop the past few months, and I am in a good rhythm! It has been amazing, yet challenging getting Geodraxus where he is currently. I couldn't of got here without the assistance of Matt and Ron. These two masters have been instrumental in getting me where I need to be and I can not thank them enough!
I have been experimenting with a lot of different things ranging from new casting methods to new tooling. I am super happy to say that this new figure is 100% Glyos compatible and the joints are tight! I have been having a lot of fun swapping the parts around and plugging them on various Glyos compatible toy lines! I wanted to share a few photos of whats been brewing with old Geo, I hope everyone gets a kick out of it!
More pics and details will surface soon for this release. Get ready for some pictures from Prismiria, Geodraxus' home planet!

More stuff will be surfacing soon on Geo, but I wanted to share a few shop photos to show some of the processes that actually go into making a figure. When I cobbled my first Geodraxus together, I was so unbelievably happy that I had made a figure from top to bottom. I still remember the phone conversations with Matt and Jesse, I was practically in tears! This had become a moment I would not forget. I had been working on him non stop for months and really wanted something to bring to NYCC that year (2013). I did what I could to make him presentable, but I knew he needed a lot of work to get him where I wanted him to be. Flash forward to now.
Ron has taken Geodraxus from his past state, to a more mechanically sound one. I wanted a figure that could do more than the previous version, and Ron has been helping me do just that. We have been going back and forth on getting things "on point" and talking about the future of this figure. Its really awesome to watch him work out in the shop! The pictures display Ron getting parts all lined up and mechanically fit. He has a very accurate way of getting those "sweet spots". I couldn't have made it here without the help of my friends Ron and Matt. You guys are the best!
Most will notice a good deal of changes to Geodraxus. Elements of the sculpt have been pushed and pulled, and new line work and design changes have been implemented. This time, he will be debuting with a darker foe.
I really can't wait to get the molding done and hold a new version of an old friend !
