    Yeah this Dracumeats is my favorite so far. The costumes for Meats seem endless!

    Really love the Tomb figure. Almost impossible that Aaron sculpted this by hand. But then again, dude is insanely talented, which just makes it *almost* impossible to believe. Figure provided by @plastichunter.

    ^ Insane photography! Especially those alley shots.

    Yeah it's hand sculpted in wax. Wonderful texturing and bone details.

    This was the first painted Tombs from DCON. There was one at SuperFestival 79 as well, but other than that it's been blanks.

    He also unveiled a new sculpt, "Suffer", at DCON. I believe it was a new head on the Oily Maniac body.



    I gotta say, this was one of my favorite headers in a while :lol:

    Hey everyone! After two years of working on it, my wife and I have launched CoART Publications with the "MEATS by Retroband" art book, which shows off EVERY hand-painted version (including one-offs) that Aaron made between MEATS' 2015 debut and mid-2018. If you're interested, you can learn more, see some preview pages, and whatnot from here:

    Absolutely LOVE this one.

    I loved playing the board game when I was a kid.

    at the time. I had no idea it was a Japanese game LOL.

    However since this was a illegal copied game in South Korea. It is super hard to find nowadays....

    but in 2015 there was a movement in a online board game community to actually remake the unlicensed game.
    They found a place that can make the board, card box, etc but they would only make it if 100 were ordered. The price for 100 was over $1000 USD. So people stared to tell their friends, and in the end the recreation of the unlicensed board game was funded.
    the colors and art is slightly different in places but the fun is all the same.
    This website is in Korean but it explains how it went.

    I was lucky enough to win this Tombs and it's a lot of fun. Aaron absolutely kills it with the clothing for his stuff, from the flannel shirt on the DotD Meats now to this really dope cape

    Fascinating story about the board game too @shincartoon ! I'm actively hunting the Bay for a copy now. Saw 1 came up about 2 months ago but this thing is just too dope to not get!
