Next up is Mr. Pumfrey and his Astounding Mechanised Perambulator, a collaboration between Doktor A, Munky King, Dave Pressler, and Pretty in Plastic. These eight inch tall creatures based off Doktor A character were sculpted by Dave Pressler and Pretty in Plastic and produced by Munky King. Mr. Pumfrey is limited to an edition of 100 and  is available for $130 (tax included) at the Munky King booth, stall #4851. Don't let these perambulate away...

These delightful "Egglue the Giraffes" are the brainchild of Frank and Becky of Tiny Kitten Teeth and were created by us folks here at Pretty in Plastic. They come in four color-ways: sherbet, spearmint, banana bean, and the multi-mix parfait (not shown) - each one is unique! They're up for adoption at the Gallery Nucleus booth, stall #2734, where Frank and Becky will be representing for the whole convention!

Last, but certainly not least, is "Lucky" the devil, a Mike Egan character brought to you by DKE Toys. "Lucky", sculpted by Pretty in Plastic and cast out of beautiful Japanese vinyl by Luke Rook, is Egan's second toy debut at SDCC in a row. These eight inch tall devils are available at the DKE Toys booth at stall #5045 for $60 a pop. They are limited to an edition of 100 for both orange and black color-ways, so make sure you stop by early!

Well, there we have it. We loved having the privilege of working with all of these amazing artists, and hope that you enjoy the fruit of our labors, whether you're currently at SDCC or at home. Julie B. will be at SDCC all weekend taking photos for our instagram, so keep an eye out for her at the con and make sure to stay tuned to our feed!

Have a great con!

For the second year in a row, artist Mike Egan will be showcasing his talent at San Diego Comic Con. Last year, Egan debuted his first three dimensional piece, BONES, at SDCC 2012 and experienced much success (also sculpted by Pretty In Plastic). We expect that this year will be no different!

"Lucky", sculpted by us folks here at Pretty in Plastic, stands about 8" tall and will be available at the DKE Toys booth (#5045) this week at SDCC! At $60 a pop, it's hard to deny the urge to add "Lucky" to your collection. This piece is limited to an edition of 100 (including both the black and orange color-ways), so stop by the DKE Toys booth early to be sure you "get lucky". ;)

The clay/wax sculpting phase... all ready for casting!

...And casting's complete!

Mike Egan will also have a number of his original paintings for sale at the DKE Toys booth, and if you stop by Thursday, July 18th or Saturday, July 20th at 4pm, Egan will be available for signing! 

So make your way over to the DKE Toys booth at stall 5045 and check out this awesome Mike Egan piece. And don't forget to keep your eyes open for Julie B.

Have a Happy Con!
