    Hey Bryce - Glad you like the poster/art thus far, thnx! Oh yeah - for sure, our main intention was to create a sculpt to parallel the poster art. However, we also kept pushing to keep within the realm of what we hope makes a good toy. I would never make the macfarlane connection myself & I listened to absolutely no Korn music during the process, haha...

    Here's the final remarque for Sirene:

    Definitely loving the artwork on all of the remarques. I really love that you can just see the connections to the animated versions if you know what to look for. You did a really wonderful job 'transforming' them. The posters are going to be a hot ticket item I have no doubt. I am excited to see the toy reveal when it is all finalised, even it it might not be along my own personal collection tastes. I can certainly appreciate some very well done work. Like Bryce, I guess it is just a personal preference to see more 'toned' back designs, particularly because I find there are so many options for hyper-realistic and 'horrorified'/grosteque Devilman toys out there. I'd love to see a return to the classic toy appearances (generally, I mean).

    Thnx for the feedback!! I definitely understand your apprehension concerning the sculpt, considering the fact that the poster & remarque artwork is completed with a forward level of detail. I love the vintage toys I believe you are referencing (Bandai, Takatoku) but obviously I'm trying to bring a personal outlook to the already expansive realm of DM figures. My intention was to make more of a traditional toy than a big gnarly sculpture to place on each side of your flatscreen (haha). I definitely wouldn't call the Unbox sculpt, horrific or grotesque - it looks a lot like the print I'd say. Hope to have more soon...

    I had thought that the posters had sold out. Then I revisited this thread. An... copped one. Dude has some cool stuff on his website aswell. I got a bunch of dope lych stickers from him a couple weeks ago.
