One of my latest endeavors...making sculpts for vinyl toys is a lot of work. Well - a lot of sanding, LOL. The surface treatment has to be almost flawless for the rotomolding production process overseas. The funny thing is you do the best you possibly can and finally get a copy of the toy and see a few flaws that the factory made...that sh*t makes me nuts.

Kaching Brands was gracious enough to give me a sculpting credit on the back of the box. A lot of companies still don't do that. Here's a shot of the actual prototype at Toy Fair (Javitts Center NYC) earlier this year at the Toy Tokyo booth:

Andrew Scribner did a really good job on the paintup for me. And a shout out goes to Nelson and Manny over at Storybox Ink (www.storyboxink.com) for the package design work. Those guys are no joke.
