David thank you for the eye candy!
Glad that you enjoyed the set.
I have been finishing up the fanclub version of War of the Kusogon and have also made resin kits of the concept version of the character.
There will be some releases on Friday the 13th. Some via the blog and some other versions offered via IG
I also just got more Kusogon shirts, very sorry to anyone who has been waiting on those or anything else from me.
@kichigai Hey John, any updates on Septic Kusogon or Kurmudgeon?
I am hoping for delivery by January of both as well as the new mini Kusogon,
as you know I am also waiting on them
A bit premature to announce but Mr. Rampage will be painting a run also on clear blue which I am certain will kill
Also early to announce, 2018 marks 10 years for Kusogon as a character, the boxset will have Army Green Kusogon

This poster took a bit of work to get right but I am very happy with these.
They were made on super thick 11x17 vintage matte cardstock.
Only 3 made for the folks who got the IKB Tribute sets released this past summer.
Plans are set to make standard glossy posters of this image for the next DIYKAIJUFEST
Friday the 13th of April 2018
Will be updating some other details soon on what will be the Final Flush of Kusogon including Keshi Kusogon!
For now and as always THANX!
In the absence of a beaK appreciation thread...
Please here enjoy this rolling crab, a dear friend of Kusogon.
In the absence of a beaK appreciation thread II...
Please here enjoy this smoggy set of yokais and patchi wonders.

Holy shit! Just realized I ordered the Septic Kusogon and the Kurmudgeon MORE than two and a half years ago! Starting to feel like a real fucking sucker!
Blame a formerly respected puller of vinyl.
Oh kurmudgeon went on sale already?
yeah Jo, I purchased mine Oct 16 2015
Just some basic points...
Only 3 folks preordered Kurmudgeon.
Only 9 folks preordered Septic.
I do not make the vinyl.
I have waited just like you and my patience is also at an end with it.
Any of the 12 folks who ordered these can ask me for a refund.
I will begin refunding each in April.
I have done the best that I could.
Others, not so much.
yikes but not suprising. This shouldn't come as a shock but sorry you got burned.
When you’re a driven creative , working with someone who for whatever reason isn’t doing their part is beyond frustrating, and you feel it on your shoulders.
I hate to hear this, @kichigai ... Here’s hoping there’s still life to em.
The ghost of Ricky still haunts the sofubi world...
Wrote it off as a loss a while back.. you win some you lose some.
My sympathies lie with folk on both important ends of the situation - the maker and the fans. Having to wait on a third party to meet their obligations hurts everyone else down the line. I'd like to see more voices chime in that have been on the receiving end of John's prolific love of monsters over the years.
I didnt even know jon from adam and he sent me a beak set when i was fighting cancer. still have them to this day and enjoy them.
His heart is in the right spot and its unfortunate ricky v decided to go ghost face on him, but people usually take a while to show their true colors. he put his faith in the guy and got burned.
lesson learned and hopefully, he can find someone else to pour for him one day.
I already have other Kusogon prototypes in Japanese hands as well as asking Hasada-san last year to make a Steampunk Kusogon, which is right here with me.
At this point I am wondering if the original mold is "lost" or misplaced.
To be honest Ricky always came thru regardless of time and even now I hope to get an email from him.
However, the last email from him was ten months ago. It goes without saying that I do not nor will not throw folks under the bus, I do hope he is OK and the issues can be resolved.
I don't feel burnt by him at all, more so let down than anything else.
I have been battling cancer for the past two years, some of you know this fact, most do not. I want zero sympathy just being open about it. Due to my bone disease, I can not get conventional treatments.
I live each day as if it is the last.
When Chris painted those IKB Kusogon, so many people wanted one thinking it was a run. There were only 3 and the ones painted were from my own collection. My intention was and still is to revisit the concept and ask Chris to paint a run of 15 or 5 of each in other IKB tones.
If the clear blue still do get made I still want Rampage to mess up a batch.
Thank you to everyone who messaged me in the past few days. I understand and respect all of you, yes even the assholes. Life is too short not to appreciate all experiences good and bad.
I will not just go away nor give up.
Kusogon will not die!
Has anyone received a refund? Thought I'd have mine by now.
John first told me he would refund me after 2.5 weeks. I didn’t receive anything, so I hit him up after that period ended. He said he would refund in another two and a half weeks. It’s been three weeks now, and I still haven’t received anything. Still waiting
John, could we get a refund status update please. @kichigai
I was out of town for a friend's funeral then had to deal with losing another one of my friends within the same week so I have not been able to address this prior to today.
Sorry for that.
Ryan you will get your refund.
I never mentioned a date so when you say you thought you would have it by now, that is on you.
However, you are next in line and it will be ASAP, I am sorry to keep you waiting I am doing the best I can do.
Kurmudgeon preorder Refunded today. The Septic refund will also be made but not exactly sure when.
If I say a date all you will do is call me out if it takes longer, but I do plan to refund you and will ASAP.
August 4 2017 you paid for War of the Kusogon, you were refunded on August 6 for the War of the Kusogon, that sold out.
December 15 2016 you paid for and received the mix part you just sold in BST.
December 8 2016 you paid for and received the HP you are still trying to sell in BST.
I have an old email where you stated those items were not delivered then another stating "long story short" they were delivered, after I said I had the tracking.
You are now selling them so it makes no difference to me, other than you did get them.
You also bought and received an orange Dokuroman from me paid for November 14 2015
You said once before that nothing ever goes out and nothing is ever sent.
In light of the above confirmed paid and obviously received items, it is what it is.
I hope your sale yields you funds to acquire something you will appreciate, honestly no hard feelings.
Nothing I have ever done was ever about the money. My biggest concern is the mold for Kusogon is lost.
I am still waiting on the answer
Steampunk Kusogon prototype by Hasada-san is officially on the way back to Japan and is going to be made by Japanese craftsman, no substitutes!
I have a limited edition of 10 one off resin cast Steampunk Kusogon release planned for late June which marks 10 years for Kusogon.
Keshi Kusogon prototype is now done. Sculpted by Travis Wade detailed by beaK. These will be out by the end of Summer.
Can not wait to share some other details of this year's Halloween Kusogon release.
(Think Ben Cooper Kusogon!)
Hopefully everyone on here is personally doing well and folks will be satisfied once all is said and done.
@kichigai Well, you did say that you'd start in April so that's why I was asking. Just wondering if anyone had received their's yet. It's cool though, thanks for the update.
