I loved one that I don't seem to see anyone talking about - Yamomark's was awesome!
I like it, but to me it felt to close to one of PKs first Kaiser releases.
Ha I didn't think of that - It does kind of remind me of the Devilman Pollen Kaiser, which is my favorite production one. Maybe a cross between that and the GID SMFU ones.
I contemplated on modifying mine but it just didn't feel right to do so.
Some amazing pieces indeed. Too hard to pick favorite.
Hah, I went to town modifying it! I love working with non-platform toys, adding, subtracting and extending the 'family language'. Even though my end result drastically changed the form, each aspect of my sculpt directly references back to the original sculpt - My way of respecting the original toy is working with it and not against it.
I really wish I was able to animate ~ I would love to create a little animation to display my idea of the transformation process: Human to Pollen Kaiser
It's a fantastic sculpt to begin, there is no need to change it but in saying that, it's very enjoyable to see how people have adapted the form - especially if it is done well. I don't agree that only the original sculptor has the 'right' to modify the form; that is a bit limiting but I do agree that only seeing painted variations would be fantastic.
Each time there is a custom show with a non-platform toy, this conversation tends to pop up. In the end, it's each to their own.
My fav pieces from the show:

My piece was impossible to photograph, here is a video for people that didn't make it to the show:
I really wish I was able to make it, I hope to come out next year~ Being all the way in Australia makes it a bit hard to pop by for opening nights.
Cudos to all of you from skullbrain that participated in our anniversary show. I'm truly blessed to be able to work around such a great bunch of talented people. All of you really put your best foot forward and I just wanted to thank you for that.
Huffington Post did a article - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/eric-fran ... 49012.html
Im excited to see these in person. I happen to be in LA for the next couple of days.
Why is no one talking about this, it is amazing. The matte finish is stunning.
Is that a NYCC PK release? If so, I am just guessing because no one is talking about anything being released there for some reason. Sucks for all the rest of us. I don't get why nearly everything has been so hush-hush this year. No one even wants to post any photos.
Meanwhile shits all over the bay already. You aren't going to impede the flippers.
It was actually released in PK's store online a few days ago
Ah cool, thanks Kevin!
I agree with David, I really like the flat paint on him. Works great with the black rub style colouring.
man , love this one. so is that red rub on black vinyl yeah?
From the website:
"Red base vinyl with black rub and white and yellow details.

I think the irony of your post got lost in translation!
I forgot the purple...

Amen to that.
Dark Forest Pollen Kaiser... and his winged minion Lufty.
Perfect choice of colors to compliment the green vinyl
