This link take you to an excellent store that sell the SEISMIC ACE for only $49.95 and is SMASH TOKYO TOYS favorite store to buy stuff and we live in Australia! Click to travel directly there. Don't know if you really want one? Watch this...it will convince you since John Stokes from spankystokes.com is largely regarded as 'the shit' when it comes to the top names in vinyl toy sites on the net in the world today: http://www.spankystokes.com/2010/08/review-smash-tokyo-toys-seismic-ace.html

Soon to be available through DKE toys for retailers. 

Especially for Krakit - Art and designs to help win free stuff over on the forums. Just kidding Krakit!

Hokay, Our artist from the beginning is a top Canadian talent called Kris Smith http://deathwind13.deviantart.com/ (check his shit out and friend him on facebook!) who has a pretty unique animated style that caught my eye over at Deviant Art.
One of the first things he ever did for us was a pic of a drill headed robot that was adapted recently into RAYOLA for Color Ink Book with awesome UK artist Kim Roberts (below)http://www.kimsbrainjunk.com/

Kris originally did this design for GALBOT TOYS and when they got arsed I snapped it up because I love it. I bought it, I OWN it, it's called Atomic Ms Shinda and you should watch out for it because I REALLY like it and there's another big artist who also likes it a lot and it's come a long way since this hand drawn sketch from 2009.

Some of our original head designs....recognise any of those? Seismic Aces proto head was chosen from these. Just think he could have been Dragon Master head.

This is what Seismic Ace was going to look like....you know what, I have this exact toy and it's really cool like this. If I get the chance in the future I will release this in vinyl in 5" scale because it is smoother and is easier to customise. I wish now we had've stuck with this or the Centurion below.
The "Centurion" is Seismic Ace's brother and was essentially an alternative head for the Bohrer K16 (his original name). THIS is my FAVORITE design out of all our toys. I love Jumbo Machinders and I asked Kris to give me a head that was a cross between Shogun Dragun and Joe Pi from Top Ten and this is what we got. I have a plastic 5" for this and you'd think it was factory made...it fucking rocks. I'd love for another company to approach me on this because I'm working on some other projects but ah...pipe dreams.

Our final design head for Chainsaw Simian. Not done as a design template...yet.

(above) Chainsaw Simian's original head looked too much like Optimus Primal so we replaced it with the other head above this one and that big frikkin' chainsaw. You can see all the bodies we have waiting to go below.

Here you can see that the Beartank doesn't have his chest cannon and doesn't really look like our 3d models...he sure as hell isn't going to look like the vinyl toy....oh shit...did I type that?

Stuff we're working on

I made these with a group of severely impaired children because I was kinda tired of watching them doing boring art so we've started doing molding/casting/painting and we made these hand-over-hand which was awesome and these were actually the crappy ones. The kids made some awesome clear lollypop ones that were genius. These were freebies for spankystokes.com at SDCC. The kids and I have also done a lot of 8" Qee Customs. Like me they love them some TOY2R....also like me they're crappy at customs! Our stuff are up on the TOY2RUSA website. We like dots and spraypaint.

(Below) are the first look at our Designer Con 2010 Spankystokes.com giveaways....Seismic Ace 3" scale heads that come blindbagged with lego bodies. You won't know what you will get.

(Below) is a badly blurry pictured first look at the SEISMIC SALLY 12" custom doll minus most of her accessories. She actually has a pink head and each type of Sally will come with weapons and accessories that match her head colour. I don't know how she will be accepted by collectors but I'm liking her freakishness because she has big boobs and nuts accessories like the design chair and Seismic Ace "Steal this shit" blueprint.

(below) Hmmmm....that's just disgusting.

(below) ART PRINTS - SEISMIC SMASH by Kris Smith. This was a giveaway over on the Toy Break forums. I have more of these to give away over there in the future.

This is not happening!

So we announced earlier this year that this was happenining in 2011 with Jon Paul Kaiser. Obviously, both Jon and i were very keen on the 99 Red Ace design since we thought it was something new and different for the toy scene.

Then some dick said we'd ripped this off.
Obviously, JPK doesn't need to rip Banksy off and the design is in fact a coincidence. The 99 RED is actually related to the song 99 RED LUFT BALLOONS and is suppossed to represent the little girl who started world war 3 but somehow a shitload of people have decided that it's a direct rip off of Banksy's work which just amazes me. So we will be working on another project together instead. Jon and I are very happy to work together on certain designs that can/may help each other in the future and would in no way want to copy another artists work and any similarities were entirely hysterical.
