    Hey all it's me Abe. A few years ago I found a deck of obscure pachi cards from Europe and have been wanting to make figures from the series. So I finally got it together and made the first in the series his name is Waldemar.

    Doesn’t really fit in with the stuff I collect but it’s a good translation from the card. Did you do the sculpting and painting yourself?

    No it was a collaborative effort Mike Nemo Mendez sculpted it, Forces of Dorkness cast and painted. Tenacious and Myself produced and creative directed it.

    I love it, it looks like the last straw for the floor manager at Hallmark Designs before sacking Walt for his 'crazy ideas' back in '78! I think we've finally found the most disquieting object to discretely sneak onto grandma's tchotchke shelf, too.

    Not explicitly to my collecting tastes either, but I can see having major regrets for not getting in early once the family of beasties grows. I can't decide if I want to twist your arm to show us the rest of the deck or if I want to wait and be wholly surprised by each new addition to the crew.

    EDIT:
    Tenacious Toys has announced another NYCC 2019 exclusive for booth 780: Waldemar the Werepengwolf!

    Waldemar is a 4.25″ tall resin figure from Abe Lincoln Jr’s new line of resin collectibles: Kaijin Mundial!

    “I stumbled across this obscure pachi monster card set from Europe a few years ago. Many popular sofubi toys are based on pachi monster cards and I thought this was untapped territory. I’ve been wanting to make Waldemar for years and this year I approached Tenacious Toys about launching the series. I couldn’t be happier with the results!”

    Backstory:
    The evil bioscientific occultist Dr. Naschy was working in his Castle in Spain, hellbent on creating an occult mashup of a werewolf and a werepenguin he would dub the Lyco-Spheníscicus.. He worked night and day combining bioscience and supernatural occult powers he’d learned from a local gypsy to merge the two fierce creatures of the night.

    His experiments every full moon would end in failure until on that fateful night. An unsuspecting tourist, Waldemar Daninsky’s car broke down in the dense forest surrounding the castle, and he came looking for some protection from the wild night. Frustrated with another failed experiment Dr. Naschy let in the unsuspecting victim and led him to the lab. That’s where he let the Werewolf and the Werepenguin rip poor Waldemar to pieces, just for sport. Shockingly, Dalinsky survived.

    On certain nights when the moon is full, the baleful plaintive cry of a half penguin half wolf creature can be heard throughout the steppes where Waldemar lives. Once he is transformed he only has 2 things on his mind, the taste of fresh blood, and the name of the scientist who did this to him.. Hellbent on killing and revenge Waldemar roams the countryside looking to slake his thirst for blood and find Dr. Naschy to make him pay for turning him into a monster.

    Waldemar was sculpted by Mike NEMO Mendez and molded, cast in resin and painted by Forces of Dorkness. There are 30 Waldemars, found exclusively in the Tenacious Toys booth 780 at NYCC for $50 each.

    Thanks for the props! I’m keeping the rest of the crew under wraps for now but expect more bugged out designs from the line.

    Echoing what other folks have said, it's a solid translation and I actually dig the sculpting style. A little rough, in the intentional totemic sense. Interested to see more weirdos in the line.

    We’re testing the waters with resin as it were no one needs a case of unsold sofuvi in their basement!

    Does the toy come with a reproduction of the card or is it time for you to quit the business? ;)

    LUV this guy! Very, very cool, Abe.
    Love the backstory... Dr. Naschy!!
    Understand if you want to keep it completely under wraps until the con, but may I ask what you have planned for packaging? Hoping it involves that amazing card art, in some way...

    Can't wait to see more! Congrats!

    Very cool!
    I also think that painted resin captures a lot of the charm of the original drawing and works even better than vinly would.
