Goodfellas




When I watched Monster, Inc. in 2001, I found my self falling in love with the two characters, Sulley and Mike. Their characters were so real, I felt like they were actually living among us, somewhere, somehow. I was tempted to get actions figures of them, but I wanted something more special and unique, not another mass produced toy. And so, I designed my own variation of the two in way that was different from the usual models of them. To make their arms movable, I molded Lego and Bandai model kit pieces in the joints.

Cool, these recent posts are really nice. I like the circus, Clint Eastwood and the boy and deer. The shapes are great and the design is fantastic.

Sweet action figures. I remember when I first saw the teaser for Monsters,Inc. I was obsessed every since. That's Pixar for you.
