Colin Kaepernick, the messenger, clear resin

Football players often take a knee when someone suffers a severe injury on the field. An enduring expression of empathy amidst the combative intensity of the game.

Colin Kaepernick, the messenger, clear resin

Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the National Anthem in solidarity with African American victims of police brutality. His call for empathy was met with angry vitriol from a polarized society. His message co-opted by powerful interests to serve their own agendas.

But his call for social justice endures through the iconic image of taking a knee – a solemn testament to the injury of those denied the equal humanity which lies at the core of America’s ideals.

A portion of the sales from both versions will be donated to Know Your Rights Camp, a charity founded by Kaepernick which empowers youth and prepares them for interactions with law enforcement.

Kool Keith x Concrete Jungle – BLUE FLOWERS – Resin Figure

Published

Blue-Flowers-koolkeith-concrete jungle thumb figure

Legendary emcee and member of the Ultramagnetic Mc’s, Kool Keith has his own figure coming out via Concrete Jungle called “Blue Flowers”. The resin collaborative piece is inspired by Kool Keith’s space traveling alter ego Dr. Octagon.

About Dr Octagon:
“Dr. Octagonecologyst was the debut solo studio album by Kool Keith, who released the album under the alias Dr. Octagon. A shorter version of the album, titled Dr. Octagon, was released on May 7, 1996, on Bulk Recordings in the United States and Mo’ Wax in the United Kingdom. The full album appeared under the title Dr. Octagonecologyst on DreamWorks Records in 1997. The set was produced by Dan “The Automator” Nakamura and featured the work of turntablist DJ Qbert. KutMasta Kurt provided additional production work. The artwork for Dr. Octagonecologyst was drawn by Brian “Pushead” Schroeder.”

Dr. Octagonecologyst introduces the character of Dr. Octagon, a homicidal, extraterrestrial, time-traveling gynecologist and surgeon. The album’s distinctive sound crosses genres such as psychedelic music, trip hop, old school hip hop, horrorcore, and electronic music. Thornton’s lyrics are often abstract, absurd, and avant-garde, using surrealism, non-sequiturs, hallucinatory psychedelia, and horror and science-fiction imagery, as well as sexual humor, absurdist/surrealistic humor, and juvenile humor. The unique sound and lyrics of Dr. Octagonecologyst helped revitalize alternative and underground hip hop, gaining more attention than any contemporary independent hip hop album “in quite a while”. ~Wiki

The figure stands at 13 inches tall, each one will be signed and numbered but it will only be limited to 100 pieces. You can pre-order “Blue Flowers” now on ConcreteJungleStudio.com.

ToyCon Transformers

We had a great time at ToyConNJ this year! There were a ton of new and vintage toys to see. Tons of Pops by Funk and classic G.I. Joe toys for days! There were also vintage and new video games and board games, there were even a few comic book vendors at the event, it was awesome. One of my favorite sections was the play area where they had two 4 lane slot car setups, an R/C car setup, vintage arcade game and virtual reality games that you could all play for free! It was a great time and I can’t wait to go again next year!
