TAG Spotlight: Alien Argus and Waotoyz!

It’s time for another Toy Art Gallery product spotlight! First up we have the newest Alien Argus edition designed by Mark Nagata and produced by Toy Art Gallery. Inspired by poisonous Amazonian tree frogs, this Argus has it all with glow in the dark Japanese soft vinyl with fluorescent red, green and yellow spray and extra black and purple detailing! Unlike his namesake, he’s safe to touch (or lick). As a special bonus, we also have two BLANK editions of Argus at a special low price. Both GLOW and RED Arguses (Argi?) are ready to be customized, or, if you prefer, left blank to enjoy the sculpt. All are available now!

The next toy we wanted to share is the funky O.G. Kaiju Waodog from Waotoyz! Designed by Swiss creator Waotoyz and produced in Japan by Lulubell Toys, this crazy canine is available in TWO TAG exclusive colorways, “Mr. Gold” and “Mr. Pink Panther”. Each features awesome soft vinyl techniques (hyper lamé and clear pink!) and truly unique sculpting and paint applications. We love this doggy here at TAG and we hope you will too. Check them out here!

We also have a very limited amount of Bellicose Bunnies from our recent Nathan Hamill signing (check out the photos on our facebook!). All are signed and sketched, so don’t snooze if you’ve had your eye on one. Grab one here!

Argus Show Customs Online NOW!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the Alien Argus Custom Group Show last night! We had a blast catching up with old friends and meeting new faces. Thanks especially to Mark Nagata for making the trip down with his family and being as personable and generous as ever.

The show turned out amazingly well, with over 70 customs in house, our largest amount yet! We’ll have our photos up shortly, but for now you can check out some great coverage (with tons of pictures and video) over at Spankystokes and VinylPulse

We’ve also secretly launched our brand-new online store to coincide with the event, as some of you have already noticed. Be sure to check out the limited run handpainted Alien Argus (painted by Mark himself) as well as amazing array of customs from the show (at very reasonable prices):
