GIZMO Duck Goes Steampunk

In a cool combination your dreams asked for but didn’t inform you, comes Steampunk GIZMO Duck. The DuckTales sculpture was created by Timbone, who sculpted it from scratch out of super sculpey firm, plastic rod and tube. It stands nine inches tall and was painted with acrylic paint.

Now if I could just get someone to make a Cyberpunk Darkwing Duck sculpture.



DuckTales A-Woo-Hoo! Tim Wollweber's Incredible 'Steampunk GizmoDuck' Sculpture!


Remember that insanely cool Link munny we shared with you earlier this month? How about the slew of incredible Dunny customs for last year’s Designer Con? It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of Southern California artist Tim “Timbone” Wollweber, and he’s gone and done our heads in again with THIS glorious piece of spectacular sculpturing: Steampunk GizmoDuck! Seriously guys, my inner child is FREAKING right now!

Recently on exhibition as part of the SteamPop art show at Rothick Art Haus in Anaheim, CA, this beaut was sculpted FROM SCRATCH using Super Sculpey, a plastic rod and a tube. Eighty hours later and that is one hell of a rod and tube, if I do say so myself. The piece was then painted with acrylic paint and he stands about 9 inches. 
Be sure to check out Tim’s website and DeviantArt page for more photos, because this thing needs to be properly seen to be believed!
Timbone has a Kickstarter campaign for a new vinyl DIY figure!

You may recall the amazing work of Tim Wollweber aka Timbone from our Custom Toy Union's Star Wars Versus Series coverage… yes, he’s the guy that did the absolutely phenomenal Darth Vader and Han Solo in Carbonite dunnys. Well, now he’s crafted an articulated female form DIY vinyl figure that he want to have produce, but that’s a rather expensive proposition; oh, hello Kickstarter campaign! The Sheelah vinyl toy, as she is called, will stand 8”-tall and be rotocasted & injected molded white vinyl. Here, why don’t I let Tim explain it himself:

He wants to make a minimum of 300 pieces with printed window box packaging. The cost? He’s only asking $18 a figure!!! Well, $22 if you want yours shipped immediately after he receives them… But the real key here is that he’s offering various levels of custom versions done by him; and — considering how gorgeous his stuff is — $200 for a Sheela with sculpt work in a design of the backers choosing seems amazing! Once again, the link for this Kickstarter campaign is HERE.
