Toy Art Gallery is proud to present the TOTIMS Angkor Wat Edition from toy legend Tim Clarke! Once known as the King of Gross after co-creating Sectaurs (Coleco) and Boglins( Mattel) in the 1980s, Tim’s ongoing collaboration with TAG has produced a stunning painted rendition of the TOTIMS, inspired by the historic ruins of Angkor Wat.
“All Totim Kings try to expand their mental capabilities by standing tall on the mummified skulls of their Ancestors. Unfortunately there are just too many middlemen for the Kings to get any reliable information.”
Each TOTIMS set consists of a total of 4 interchangeable parts which can be rearranged into multiple configurations: one top, two sectionals 1 bottom, plus an extra top cap. Combined together the TOTIM towers at 12 inches tall, and each individual part has a 3 inch diameter base (individual heights vary). Each part is also double-sided, giving you even more options for arrangement.
Tim Clarke was on the latest episode of Toy Break to discuss his toy career, his TOTIMS universe, and much more! Make sure to check it out at http://www.toybreak.com, or at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6tVyCArQ8A

Jeremi Rimel from Miscreation Toys:
“Remember when you were a kid and would lift a big rock up just to see all the nasty bugs squirm underneath it? I aim to capture that same sort of feeling when you lay eyes one of my toys. I make art because it helps me enjoy life more, turning an idea into a physical object is an incredible feeling. Seeing these strange creations come to life makes me laugh inside.
“Autopsy Zombie Staple Baby” is the first reproduced sofubi doll in my series of original horror art dolls I’ve been calling “Autopsy Babies” over the years. The concept came to life from my interests in horror films, toys from the 80′s, and an unusual need to gross people out.
I had a little brother Warren who passed away along with my Mom in 2010, he was my biggest fan and loved the weird and deranged sculptures I would come up with. I will always have him in my heart and continue to create no matter how weird it gets.
Enjoy The Crawling Dead!”
As a special Autopsy Baby bonus, we’ll have unique posters, tshirts, and maybe even a surprise Autopsy Baby edition available at the show!
Please join us for the exhibit opening on Saturday, March 8th from 7-10pm at Toy Art Gallery’s showroom located at 7571 Melrose Ave. Hollywood CA 90046. Jeremi Rimel, the creator of the Autopsy Baby, will be in attendance along with many other participating artists.
