    I think these guys are long extinct. But does anyone have more info on the company and their releases, even better, pictures? I know they've made some Micro Man outfits and little resin alien saucer guys. Anything else is out there?

    Here is one of their Dokuro King Micro man suits.
    I know this stuff is probably pretty obscure, it would be great to get some more pictures in this thread to enjoy.

    VxFxCx was a short lived hobby project about 10 years back. Besides the Microman Walder suits and the Virus Force Baikingundan inspired resin figures, they did a couple of t-shirts. That was about it.

    THanks for the info.

    Does anyone have pictures of the Virus Force Baikingundan resin. I know there was one on Kaiju Taro for a while. Did anyone save it?

    kroker those are all from Daitetoku Build (same company as the Assembleborg Dokuroking). The Chest Engine has a bunch of pics of before and after finished sets of the Waruda costume versions. I have some of the skulls, here are some better detail shots:

    The Hiro Grim artwork in the first post is so ruling. Does anyone have any information as to whether or not there is any sort of collection of his work available? It should exist but perhaps it's wishful thinking...

    I don't believe there is any collection or book of his work, although there is quite a bit of it in the form of toys, tshirts etc. I really fell in love with his stuff back when he was doing the Base 2x0 tshirts and such . It's sad that he's passed away.

    Yeah, I think he was a great talent. It would be cool to have a book collecting all his work for people to see.

    Thnx NT! There's some great work on that site. Been checking it for an update...the 'coming soon' T-shirt in the store has been there for quite some time if my memory serves me right.

    Hirogrim sadly passed away 4 years ago so I'm not sure if anyone will be releasing his shirts or other endeavors. I'm a fan as well and have not seen anything for quite sometime. I'm actually surprised the websites are still active.

    Yeah. I'm aware. Sorry if I came across as confused. I wrote a blog at the time of his passing as I was really struck by his art. I suppose I had hope a 3rd party might produce items for the online store. Again, probably wishful thinking...

    Yeah, I'm pretty surprised it's still active. Pleasantly surprised.
    I really want one of the Waldar guts t-shirts...not sure if they were actually ever produced or not though.

    The guts shirt was sold before. I think the last adult clothing he may have designed were the Charactics Waruda shirts. Then stuff for the Convex x Takara Tomy line which was all kids clothing.

    I really miss Hiro Grimm's work. Im so glad SecretBase produced some of his designs as well. The Death Phantom 12" suit is probably my favorite.

    i have had a fantasy of doing a Hiro retrospective at the hut, but honestly it's better than and more than the hut can safely handle. Needs to be in LA.
