CROM & AZAZEL Resin Figures by POP Prolific - to debut at "Hard & Soft: The Many Layers of POP" at PIQ! on Dec 3rd!

Teased in my previous feature, today we have a look at the final figures by Justin Volpe AKA POP Prolific, of his vintage Masters of the Universe-styled original resin figures!

The “Skeleton”-looking dude seen up above front-n-center is named “CROM” (after the Robert E. Howard Conan deity), and “AZAZEL” (The Body Jumping Angel”) is the name of the character with the “layered Shredder” mask! There is a second edition of CROM which comes in GID Blue!

Standing 4.5" tall each, there are a trio of resin figures to be had, of which 6 x pieces will be made of each character design. One of each piece will be available for sale at PIQ on December 3rd - for his "Hard & Soft: The Many Layers of POP" show - while the rest will be listed on his online shop starting on the 3rd!
"… for enquiring minds, I'll ship out all orders on the 14th and 15th of December. My goal is to do at least one new resin figure every month next year and this set of 3 will kick off the series." - added Justin.
Justin Alan Volpe will be in present at PIQ Grand Central Terminal this Saturday 5:30pm to 9:30pm along with Sugar Fueled artist Michael Banks.

Satyrs at #StarryEyed Solo Show by Seulgie @ myplasticheart (Dec 2-31, 2016)

Snaps of Seulgie’s STARRY EYEDsolo show at myplasticheart launched December 2nd (Exhibition runs through December 30th 2016), which in this particular blogpost, focuses on her uber-adorable Rory Satyr, in a variety of guises - as bunnies, lambs and donkey!
EVENT PRESS: "myplasticheart is excited to present “Starry Eyed” featuring the work of Brooklyn artist and toy sculptor Seulgie. The exhibition will showcase various interpretations of her popular characters “Satyr” and “Rory”, whimsical faun-like creatures that perfectly capture Seulgie’s fondness for cuteness. An assortment of hand-sculpted figures and original paintings and drawings will be on view."
Feel free to head on to my previous feature to peep MORE of these cute creatures, and stay tuned to Instagram @myplasticheart for when they announce online sales of Seulgie’s Satyrs, that is IF any are left after the show launch!!!

Setup begins for Starry Eyed exhibition. See you tomorrow! #starryeyed @seulgie._ #rory #resin

There is a mixture of Media represented - predominantly feature films - from classics like “Blade Runner” and “Back To The Future”, to current films, like “I AM HERO” from Japan (C'mon! How could they miss the fat obese over weight zombie??? :p). Not to be left out are pop culture-related media-fun like PSA video games for “Assassin’s Creed”.
